When it comes to buying plus sized lingerie, there are more options available now than ever before, thanks to online shopping, and an increased awareness among manufacturers of the demand for sophisticated, sexy plus sized clothing. Fifty percent of all American women wear a size 14 or greater, and if you count yourself among this majority, do not be discouraged by those photos of skinny, airbrushed women modeling garters and camisoles. 

Regardless of your body type, it is possible to look sleek and sexy in your favorite lingerie. While you shop, keep in mind that the proper fit will enhance your mood and boost your confidence, but that squeezing into an outfit that is too tight and constrictive will have the opposite effect. 

The first tip for creating a slender silhouette is to consider a monochromatic ensemble. It is true that black, as well as darker colors in general can have a slimming effect, but it is also true that wearing any color head to toe creates a uniform, slender effect, particularly when mixed textures like leather and lace are thrown in. For an extra one color punch, be sure to match your pantyhose, stockings, or body stockings, as well as your slippers or high heels to your outfit as well.

Rose Red Seamless Fishnet Hooded Dress

Nowadays, if the word lingerie” is mentioned, we immediately think of sexiness, sophistication, passion, and even eroticism. We usually imagine brassieres, panties, corsets and nighties made of black or red lace. If we are asked, the purpose of women’s fine lingerie is to make women feel sexy, and confident about their bodies.

However, fine lingerie was not really invented for this purpose. Lingerie was invented basically for the purpose of shape, hygiene and modesty. In the mid 1800′s and early 1900′s, lingerie was bulky and uncomfortable. Corsets, which were worn to support the breasts and to have a slimmer waistline, were known to be excruciatingly painful because it can make breathing hard. It definitely needed getting used to. Though it was considered fashion, most women hated wearing it.

Later on, the corset was replaced by the more favorable girdle because of its elasticity. The girdle was made of garter and it was comfortable to wear. In the 1960′s, the pantyhose was introduced. The pantyhose was a combination of the panty and the stockings. Though there are still corsets being manufactured and sold today, the girdle and the pantyhose are more popular.
