Plus Size Underwear Tips

By Vivian U

Wearing the right underwear is essential if you want to feel good. It is important to invest in good quality underwear.

For most plus size women especially those with big boobs, buying lingerie is difficult. So many stores do not have large sizes and although some stores claim to have “big sizes”, it usually never gets past band size 40 and cup size double D.

The tips below will help plus size beauties when shopping for lingerie.

 

  1. FIND A PLUS SIZE LINGERIE STORE

This is top on the list because when you first find a store that caters to you, then everything else will be a walk in the park. Some stores may not necessarily be “plus size exclusive”, but they do have a plus size department. Go for those ones too.

EVERYTHING

Be sure to pick bras and panties that are not itchy or too tight. It should be comfortable and almost feel like you are not wearing a thing.

 

  1. GET YOUR CORRECT BRA SIZE

Ask the store attendant if they can help do a bra size measurement. Most lingerie stores do this for their customers at no cost. If you will like to this on your own however, check out this previous post.

  1. KNOW YOUR BOOBS

Every woman’s boob is unique in appearance. Some are slightly droopy while some are perky, some are too far apart, some have both boobs almost touching and some have one boob almost a cup size greater than the other. However your boobs look, do take this into consideration when buying a lingerie.

 

  1. COLOUR MATTERS

The colour of your underwear is really important. Buy a lot of black, white and nudes. This will ensure that you do not have to worry that your underwear will be seen through your outfit. Buy other colours too but this should be based on the colour of clothes you have in your wardrobe

 

  1. WHAT CLOTHES DO YOU WEAR OFTEN?

This will determine the type and colour of bras you will buy. If you wear mostly sleeveless clothes, then you know the traditional T-shirt bra won’t do it. If you have alot of colours in your wardrobe, then black, white and nude will only do so much but won’t satisfy yourwardrobe needs.

  1. SETS ARE GREAT BUT…

Bra-panty sets are beautiful in the ads, but sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where the top fits right but the bottom won’t even go over your butt or vice versa. This is because some women are wider below than at the top (or vice versa), so this will have you paying for a satisfaction you won’t get. To avoid this, buy your bra and panties separately.

 

  1. ALWAYS CHECK THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Check to see if the underwear specific care rules. Is it machine washable? Can withstand heat? It is important to note this so you know how best to care for it.
