Plus size is sophisticatedly referred to the size of clothing for people having larger than average bodies and differs in size as per geography since people everywhere are not of the same build. The term has been brought about by the fashion industry where it means sizes 12-24 while 4&6X are super sizes and 7X and above is extended size.
Most Indian women are seen to be plus sizes as per Western fashion standards where thin or slim is considered to be average as compared to voluptuous or curvy, which is a pretty disturbing way to categorise. Anyhow, this article will guide the plus size battalion to the correct piece of lingerie.
Plus Size Bras And Panties
If you are a curvy woman, you will be known for them, always. You need to maintain them and wear undergarments to ensure they do not lose shape. Plus size can be a challenge since you may think you would fit in the average size but just an inch would make a world of difference. Plus size bras and panties are available both in markets and boutiques and online. Measuring your exact bra size yourself is a must so as to ensure you buy the right one. The bra and panty you will wear regularly will determine how your curves would look throughout.
Buying a tight bra one would end up squishing them into your chest and make you feel and look awkward. Buying a loose one would cause the breasts to sag and if it is worn regularly your breasts will become saggy after a point of time. Therefore measure and choose the right size and material for yourself.
For underwear, wear one that covers your entire bottom else you will find yourself feeling uneasy in your pants if part of it tucks in between your buttocks. If you wish to not show panty lines for certain attire, buy plus size thongs, they are also available in the market.
Plus Size Lingerie
It is not that plus size women cannot wear lingerie. A curvy body looks beautiful in lingerie as much as a slim one does. One needs to choose the right fit. Curvy bodies need lingerie that would hold the breast and bottom in place so that they do not look loose or peek out. Curves need support and a wrong notion is that only padded materials or push ups can give it thereby making curvy women not applicable as far as flimsy or lacy lingerie is concerned. Flimsy or lace lingerie with elastic providing support or strings or straps which can be tied and thereby give support look very nice on curvy bodies. You can buy lingerie without any inhibition about your size. Just ensure it fits you right.
