Lingerie isn't just for skinny women anymore! More and more lingerie companies are designing special pieces made just for plus size women. Find out what you need to look for when buying plus size lingerie.

Tips for Buying Plus Size Lingerie

There's an old saying that goes like this: the only people comfortable in lingerie are lingerie models. False! With the right lingerie, any woman can look and feel sexy. However, picking out lingerie can be an intimidating prospect. Many women are a little self-conscious about certain areas of their bodies. And when it comes time to reveal a sexy new teddy, the last thing you want to be thinking about is that problem area.

Thankfully, the lingerie industry has gone through many positive changes of late. Designers have been embracing full-figured women and offering them beautiful options that don't look like something your grandma would wear. So when you're shopping for plus size lingerie, here are four tips to keep in mind:

#1 Look for Comfort & Fit First

You aren't going to feel sexy when you've got wires poking you, undies wedging their way up your butt or a corset that's digging into your skin. Finding your perfect size will make all the difference. Remember — what you don't show can be as sexy as what you do! A properly sized chemise or babydoll can work wonders for a comfortable feel. Both styles fit loosely, show off your chest and let you reveal only what you want to reveal. Look for plus-size options with wider bra straps for comfy support that won't dig into your body.

#2 Accentuate your Assets

You don't always have to hide the parts of your body that make you uncomfortable. Instead, highlight the ones that you love. If you're not crazy about your thighs but love your booty, check out panties that turn heads with extravagant detailing on the back and use sheer garter panels on your thighs. If you're gaga over your tatas but not so hot for your tummy, look for a corset or bustier that puts your cleavage on full, jaw-dropping display.

#3 Materials Matter

Not every material works for every full-figured woman. Fishnets and leather can look sexy on one body and odd on another. By the same token, flowing, flowery satin may make you feel more like Queen Elizabeth than a sex kitten. Another great option that's hot these days is sheer mesh. It's great for hinting at your assets without completely revealing them.

#4 Color is Critical

The right color will not only make you look slimmer and highlight certain areas of your body; it can affect mood as well. What signal are you sending? White exudes innocence and highlights the hue of your skin. Red can incite passion and draw attention to you. Green has a calming effect, while blue can feel standoffish, which could be great for taking charge in the bedroom.

Whatever you choose, just remember — your full-figured curves are beautiful so don't be afraid to feel comfy, sexy and bold in your new lingerie!
