I hear many plus size women complain that there is not enough lingerie for plus size ladies – the truth is, there is!
Let us concentrate on corsets in this article, there are many beautiful corsets out there that will fit ladies up to a size 24 or a 45 inch natural waist.
So which corset is the best to go for? Plastic bones or steel bones? Now i will Always recommend steel because they are of much better quality and have the staying power a plus size woman needs, not to mention it will last for years! Where as a plastic boned (also know as acrylic bones) are less expensive and bend very easily. That mean the bones will bend out of shape and will do your curves no justice at all. Don’t get me wrong, if you are wanting a corset for bedroom use only, then yes got for a plastic boned corset as it is unlikely to be on for long! But you really do need to invest in a good quality long lasting plus size corsets to make you look and feel great. Cheap doesn’t mean you’ve got a bargain, so do shop wisely.
You must also remember that the lingerie world will say plus size is a size 14, please don’t get offended by that. Years ago everyone was slim and the lingerie world marked up all lingerie, corsets, bustiers etc as Plus Size if you were a 14 or above. In this day and age a size 16 is the average size for a woman in the UK, so you would expect a Plus Size to start from a size 18 maybe? If only is all i can say!
I’d love to say there is an abundance of plus size corsets out there, but that just isn’t the case. I myself have searched high and low for Plus Size Chemises but with no joy at all. The biggest i have found is a size 16, i hear you all sighing as you read, i know i know.
BUT at least the good news is that you can buy a beautiful plus size corsets, they come in many different sizes, colours and styles and for all kinds of uses, whether it be at home or to go out and rock the night away!
Don’t hide away in your comfy knickers, non underwired bras and t shirts for bed, go and get sexy. And NO, you do not need a man to wear a corset, you can wear a corset out on a night out. Wear an under bust corset with a shirt underneath and hit the town ladies. Have fun finding your ideal corset!
