Just because skinny women rule the pages of fashion magazines, and the Victoria’s Secret catalog, doesn’t mean that only stick figured girls can don the latest lingerie fashion trends and look awesome doing it. Full figured ladies can pull off wearing sexy lingerie by finding the perfect style, fabric, color, and size that will maximize their best features and de-emphasize some of their imperfections. Part of looking sexy is being comfortable and confident with whatever you are wearing. If you feel sexy and comfortable with your lingerie, then you’ve already won half the battle, sister!
The fact of the matter is most women know if they are wearing the wrong type of lingerie. It just doesn’t feel right. And if you feel awkward with what you are wearing, it will show just like it will show if you feel hot and sexy. Your man will sense your sizzle and, well, you probably have an idea of what happens next. The point is, the first step toward finding the best lingerie that suits you is being comfortable with what you have in terms of body features and characteristics. Don’t go wishing you have Kate Moss’ body so you can wear this or that type of lingerie. Accepting what you have and knowing what your limits are is crucial to finally feeling comfortable with wearing the kind of lingerie that will make your significant other focus his attention on you instead of the game on TV.
All women, including those on the heavier side, want to feel special, sexy, and desirable. And lingerie is all about just that, allowing women to feel their best. Women who have large bellies should consider the fabric and material of the lingerie. Avoid wearing those that are tight-fitting and clingy. Materials such as PVC, leather, and Lycra are not ideal for full figured women as they tend to emphasize on the curves that you really want to conceal. You should opt instead for loose fitting lingerie styles with free flowing design. Materials like satin or silk are not just comfortable, they also drape well and can help draw attention towards your other features.
Look for lingerie designs that will play down the negative aspects of your body but bring out all of your best features. The key to perfecting an elegant and sexy look is to draw attention away from the areas of your body you don’t like and accentuate the characteristics that you do find attractive. For instance, if your breasts are your greatest attribute, then opt for bras that will put some emphasis on your cleavage. On the other hand, if you are “all about the bass” (yes, the song!), then don some lingerie that will feature those perky puppies.
Another aspect of the lingerie selecting process you need to consider is the color. Every piece of lingerie you wear should have the same color. Multicolored outfits only work for peacocks; you are a beautiful woman with class and flavor. Stick to darker colors when picking out your lingerie; black, navy blue, burgundy, and brown are a full figured woman’s best friend because these colors can make you appear slimmer. Just remember that when it comes to lingerie, the simpler the better.
