Buying plus size lingerie can be a little annoying if you don’t know what you’re looking for. There are several things that you should look at when choosing your lingerie to make sure you get the best fit and style to suit your body. Here are some tips for getting the best:
Men are often shy to enter our lingerie retail store. Grown men are reduced to babbling and stuttering when faced with the prospect of talking to another woman about their wives or girlfriends undergarments. I see it time and again where a man comes in to buy lingerie and is visibly nervous.
Some magazines try to persuade women to buy lingerie a size too small and say this is because it is sexy. Sadly, it’s just not true. Wearing something that is too small only has one result. You look fat, and it really doesn’t matter what size you are. Fit is all important. The real reason some magazines advocate buying a size smaller is to cover the fact that many lingerie ranges don’t actually go up to the 40 inch bust size of the average American woman. If you go to a lingerie store don’ just pick up your size and buy.
If you’re wearing the wrong size bra it also possibly means the rest of your lingerie and swimwear won’t be the correct size either. There needs to be a strategic approach to improving your lingerie collection and it starts with a bra fit and finishes with you possibly buying clothes a size smaller!
If you’re unsure how the fabric in the crotch area should fit, you will know it’s comfortable when it doesn’t bind your skin, and when there is no excess fabric at the front or back. Note that the seam at the front crotch area should not slip backwards.
Plus sized lingerie that is not properly fitted to your body will not be comfortable at all- and it will not look right under your clothes or without them for that matter. If you are stuffing stuff back into a bra cup, or your cup looks like a melted cup of ice on a summer day, you have the wrong size. Your bra should fit you around the rib cage as well as in the cups.
A good lingerie site should ensure that it is clear which sizing information you need to use for each individual product. Only that way can you avoid taking chances on sizing when you purchase.
