Plus Size Lingerie Is In Fashion!

Big, beautiful women are finally claiming their place in the world as attractive women in spite of the fact that everyone pushes thin women to the forefront. It’s sad that we live in a world that thinks you have to be thin to be pretty. Plus size women actually have history on their side. In past centuries, women with hips and curves were considered the ideal woman. In the fifties, Marilyn Monroe was the sexy icon and she was certainly not thin. Why don’t we have models like that today instead of these stick thin creatures that make normal women miserable to look at?

Sexy lingerie for the plus size woman is now more prolific than ever. Isn’t it wonderful that society has looked further than the idea that only skinny women are sexually attractive? Because of this, plus size lingerie now has the same quality and styles that were once only available in size four. If you are a pleasingly plump lady and you haven’t discovered the new styles for your size get out there and shop! There are so many styles and colors to choose from.

Now you can be a size 22 and still go shopping with your size 2 friend if you want to. Many stores are beginning to cater to all types of women which is the way life should be. Plus-size apparel sales last year rose 13.2 percent, and teen plus-size rose 14.2 percent, compared with 5.6 percent for all women's clothes, according to one survey. The only problem is that many plus-size women say they are belittled in stores and are relegated to buying online. While I agree that plus size women shouldn’t be treated any different than stick figure shoppers, online shopping is the best thing that has ever happened to America! No long lines at stores, no fighting for a parking place, you can even shop in your undies if you are shopping online. And it’s delivered right to your door! What a life!

So if you are endowed with sexy, feminine curves, celebrate that fact in your choice of lingerie styles and colors. Even if you don’t have a perfect body (and who does?), it’s simple to disguise what you don’t like and play up what you do.
