Buying Lingerie Step 3.1: Best Lingerie for Curvy Women

Posted by on Mar 7, 2014 in Buying Guides, Lingerie | No Comments

Ok, so there are many, many different options of lingerie. From bras to panties, teddies to body stockings, it can get complicated fast. Whether this is a gift for your girl or something for yourself, remember the main goal of lingerie is to make the wearer feel sexy in her own skin. Personally, we think women of all sizes are beautiful in their own skin, but we can all be a little self-conscious about our body. So we want to help you find styles that make women feel comfortable, while showing off their best features. If you’re new to our lingerie buying guide series, check out Step 1 and Step 2, first. Then, check out the best lingerie styles below for full figure women with curves.

The Babydoll Teddy

A babydoll teddy will easily hide a larger tummy or butt, while showing off other curves likes the breasts and legs. Dark colors are more slimming, and can help someone feel more confident. Though, we think women who who love their curves can totally rock white, pastels and see-through fabrics.

The Long Negligee

A sexy, long negligee suits voluptuous women and hides a multitude of sins. Short women can gain length by having long slits in the sides of a long gown. Again, think dark, slimming colors. But also be sure to draw attention to curvy assets like the breasts, bottom or shoulders.

The Body Stocking

Body stockings work for just about all body types. They also cover a great deal of body imperfections, or at least give the illusion that they do. Sometimes that thin sheer layer covering the entire body is just enough to make a woman feel comfortable and not completely naked with a man staring at her imperfections! Trust us, they are popular and will make most women feel sexy.

The Bottom Line

Nothing should cling to parts of the body the wearer would prefer were hidden, such as the tummy or thighs. Be sure to keep fabric loose and flowing, so it enhances curves but doesn’t stick. If you – or your girl – is a little self-conscious, add in a sexy robe that can be wrapped around the body. The robe will help a woman feel at ease and will tingle her skin with the delicious softness of silk or satin. This feeling alone is very sensual and will help sexy ideas blossom.
