Lingerie Set: Plus Size Lingerie - Getting the Facts

There are several things that you should understand about getting the best plus sized lingerie, not only for looks and value but for comfort and effectiveness as well. After all, if your lingerie is not helping you to look and feel the best that you can, why bother wearing it all?

First, you need to make sure that you are buying the right size. It has been talked about in the plus sized lingerie industry for years, but they have not come up with universal sizing yet. You should understand that the size that you typically buy in one brand may not be the same size that you will need in a differing brand. It is worthwhile to investigate the actual size that you need in each brand for the best look and feel.

Second, you need to make sure that the elastic content in the bra is high enough to give the fit and support that you need but not so high that it is painful. In addition, you should make sure that all of the elastic is covered with fabric. If you have ever pinched yourself with a rubber band, you will know what uncovered elastic might feel like. Plus sized lingerie should have solid elastic, but remain comfortable.

Third, make sure that you are looking for plus sized lingerie that has wide and fully adjustable straps as well. Narrow straps will not support your bosom and will only cause further pain. The straps should be padded for additional comfort as well.

Plus sized lingerie has blissfully expanded in both styles and color choices, so you can actually find beautiful, fashionable bras, panties and other items that not only fit well but make you feel sexy and womanly. You don't have to make do any longer with items that kind of fit, no more stuffing your breasts back into cups that are too small or dealing with the shoulder dents from straps that are too tight.

A final note about plus sized lingerie: when you find an item that you like really well with good fit, buy several because you will want to have extras on hand. In addition, if you find a good price online, sign up for a newsletter which can alert you to special sales or discontinued items.
