A well fitted lingerie would flatter the positive  and mask the negatives. So make sure you understand her measurements.

Determine the style that flatters her body:

  • Some styles may look great on others but when she tries, it may not bring out her best curves, so take a moment to reflect in your preferences. The type of lingerie that goes well for plus size women is often Babydoll lingerie (click to see our selection of Babydoll lingerie).
  • Baby dolls are perfect because the entire waist flows away from the midsection area.  Babydolls are also good for hiding the tummy area but it would show some skin. There is nothing wrong in showing some skin as a plus size woman especially when you are trying to be sexy for your partner.
  • You should also consider Corset lingerie: A corset is a great style as it emphasizes cleavage and curves.

Choose the right material for your lingerie:

  • The style may look nice but lingerie still depend on the type of material used. If you want to look flattering or sophisticated silk or lace, is the best. To boost your sex appeal try leather and sheer chiffon lingerie. Cotton lingerie is for everyday use as it actually gives comfort and low maintenance .

Decide on the colour and pattern that suits you:

  • For a slimming effect black coloured lingerie is a popular choice.
  • Red lingerie with lace on the burst would make you look sexy and seductive.
  • For a youthful look pastel colours (turquoise, pink, pale, cobalt} are the best.

Consider interests and fetishes.

  • Your lady might be interested in encouraging your fetishes. For example perhaps you have an anime cosplay fetish, so a cosplay related outfit might be ideal.
  • If she has an interest in BDSM / bondage. If so leather lingerie would be good.
  • Maybe she is nostalgic for her younger days. Something that is Sailor Moon or Pokemon themed lingerie might excite her -- and you!

Set your budget:

  • Shop around and stay within your budget when shopping for sleep wear or lingerie, you do not have to break the bank to buy the perfect lingerie. We carry many affordable varieties of such styles on our website in our Lingerie Catalog.

Also put into consideration that when choosing lingerie for plus size women you have to consider not buying the lingerie that would show where you are not comfortable with in your body part for example if you have issue with your stomach try to find a piece of lingerie that is less tight and more flowing in the stomach part. If you love your chest go for the one that is tighter and would show more of your cleavage, making that the focus of the outfit.

Benefits of choosing dark colors for your lingerie is that it gives a slimming effect and also can promote the "bad girl" image that many men find sexy. Remember that your goal is to make your lover's eye drift to the sexiest parts of your body, so choose the lingerie that accentuates your assets best.
