Womens Plus Lingerie

Waist or Tummy Bulge?

This is an easy problem to camouflage. Opt for babydoll lingerie with an empire waist, or slip lingerie.

A princess chemise in stretch lace with a fitted bodice and flared skirt is also a great option for camouflaging a tummy.

Choose womens plus lingerie styles with scoop or V necklines that draw attention upwards and won't overwhelm the bustline and waistline.

Many chemise and sleepwear and lingerie slips come with matching panties.

Wearing thong panties is great for two reasons - thongs show off a long leg line, plus there's no VPL, visible panty line.

If you want to add some spice, choose a piece of sheer risque lingerie like a thong in sensuous silk under a peekaboo plus size baby doll.

Upper Arms

Opt for styles with a bit of a sleeve. Plus size pajamas and loungewear in satiny silk, or Egyptian cotton have a wonderful look and feel, and camouflage the arms.

When choosing womens plus lingerie, remember NOT to wear anything too tight, as it will have the opposite desired effect, and accentuate problem areas.

A shrug in lace or mesh is a great cover for lingerie as well as daywear.

Plus size nightgowns with a cap, 3/4 or even long sleeve are an excellent choice as they draw attention away from the arms.

When choosing everyday intimate apparel like camisoles and cami sets, avoid spaghetti straps as this will draw attention to the arms. Again, opt for 3/4 or full sleeves or even a cami with sheer sleeves that will distract the eye.

Hips, Thighs or Bottom

Plus size long silk nightgowns are the ultimate in luxury lingerie.

Choose a chemise or womens nightgowns that don't hug the hips, thighs or bottom tightly, but instead flow comfortable over them.

A plus size corset is an excellent choice as it draws attention to the curve of your waist.


Try a plus size nightgown in satin, lace or cotton... or a knee length plus size charmeuse chemise slip. Look for fabrics that flow beautifully and smoothly. Avoid anything that hugs tightly or is too big.

First, know your correct bra size. If you're not sure about bra sizes and want a quick reference, click on our easy 3 step bra size calculator. If you're self conscious avoid bra styles that enhance your bustline, like a plus size push up bra, or plus size open bra.

The best bras have great support. Just My Size Bras, Jockey bras, Chantelle bras, Champion bras and Lily of France bras are a few manufacturers with pretty and supportive large cup bras.

You can also match a beautiful stretch lace plus size camisole with a built-in bra for added support and style.

Heavier Legs

Look for a long, flowing full length nightgowns in plus size womens lingerie ...nothing too fitted or clingy.

Choose better fabrics that flow and hang well, and avoid cheaper materials that cling.

Also, try a pair of long silk, or satin pajamas with a wider leg.

Avoid any plus size loungewear or womens pajamas with tapered legs, as this will make a thick leg look heavier than it is.
