OK ladies…I don’t want to hear any more excuses. There’s no need to complain about not having lingerie that fits. Plus size lingerie is popping up everywhere. And this includes one of my favorite retailers, City Chic. You may have seen the beautiful Tocarra wearing their pieces in the October issue of Plus Model Magazine. The new line carries bras, panties, and shapewear. Sexy!
If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in the plus size online-shopping world, it’s that there are quite a few options in the U.K. I used to live in Europe and at that time, I didn’t do any online shopping for clothes. Today, you can find almost anything online, including lingerie.
Simply Yours is one of those U.K. lingerie brands. I actually owned a plus size corset of theirs and I loved it! They make the cutest pieces. Anything from bras, knickers, hosiery, nightwear and more.
I was looking at their web site today and I couldn’t help but notice something. Why don’t I wear camisoles like these?
Really? The camisole is such a basic, but essential piece. Think about it, when was the last time you had a button up blouse and you just wanted to leave a few buttons open, but you didn’t want to flash everyone? If you had a lace camisole, you could just wear it underneath and let it peek out. Leaving something to the imagination?
And I’ve always been a fan of wearing tanks underneath my tops as well, but sometimes you just want something a little sexier. That’s where the plus size camisole comes in. It can even be worn casually or as sleepwear. They even carry slimming camisoles, if that’s what you need. You know I love how one piece of clothing can be used in so many ways and be functional. Once again lingerie saves the day!
Do you own a camisole from Simply Yours?

You know as well as I do, that finding the perfect bra is torture! It can not only be annoying, but it can be expensive and time consuming. I have been on the hunt for a wireless bra, that was not only affordable, but that actually “held up” its end of the bargain…if you know what I mean. And by that I mean, the bra has to offer great support. Duh!
I’ve had enough with wearing under-wire bras all day with the uncomfortable wire poking me! I don’t mind a couple of hours, but all day…not anymore.
Since, I am already a fan of Cacique Intimates, I’ve decided to try their Smooth Satin No-Wire Bra. Besides, they were having a BOGO sale and I couldn’t miss out on that. I purchased the black and cafe mocha colors. The overall ratings and reviews on the web site were pretty positive. And now I know why.
Yes, this is my first wire-free bra I’ve worn since my training bra days and I was really worried about the support. But, now I know I have nothing to worry about. This is a very supportive and comfortable full coverage bra. I will admit that the first time I wore it there was a little irritation from the adjusters (?) on the back of the bra straps, but that went away after the first wear.
The slightly padded cups give the breast a natural shape that nature intended. The bra straps don’t dig into shoulders because of the wide padded straps and there is plenty of coverage in the back. I think this would make a great t-shirt bra, since it’s pretty invisible under your clothing.
I have made this my all day bra and I don’t regret it one bit. I will admit, if you’re looking for an “uplifting” bra, then this isn’t it. Because there is no under wire, you don’t get the same effect. But, this isn’t your 1950’s soft cup bra either.
Inspired by my friend Nik’s post “Keeping the romance alive during the holiday season” I went online in search of my own way to turn up the heat during the holidays. Let your curves do all the talking with your special someone. I am a sucker for anything red and I am definitely loving #2! Which one do you love?
In honor of my trip to N.Y.C for BlogHer 2010, I have partnered up with Lingerie.com for another great giveaway! This amazing city is such a fashion inspiration and I can’t wait to take it all in! One thing I’ve always loved about this concrete jungle is the night life.
Imagine yourself going out for “A Night in N.Y.C.” and you’d really like to add a sexy twist to your outfit. Nothing is sexier than wearing a piece of lingerie to spice things up. Lingerie.com has you covered. Why not try one of their corsets? I know it’s a bit daring, but this is the city that never sleeps. I think a leather corset would look amazing with a pair of skinny jeans and killer pumps!
Lingerie.com wants to give one of my curvy readers a $50 gift card to bring your sexy outfit to life!

Summer has officially started and if you don’t believe me, just check your calendar. The 4th of July weekend is only a few days away! You know what that means…SALES! And you can’t forget the most important factor…the heat. The blazing sun is so unforgiving!
Interestingly enough, I think my hubby will really love this summer. Let me elaborate a bit…without getting too personal. LOL. Now, I’ve told you all before that I’m a t-shirt and sweats kind of girl. But, not this summer. I’ve never been so comfortable with my body and I am on a mission to make this a summer of firsts. Like…wearing lingerie to bed. I know! I know! But, I am a married woman who needs to keep the romance alive!
When do you feel your sexiest? Is it when your lying around in a sexy piece of lingerie? It is isn’t it?
I am going to be completely honest…I used to be a t-shirt and sweats kind of girl. Now, I’m venturing into the world of sexy sexy. You know that place where anything lace, slinky, or frilly works?
You can only imagine how happy I was when Lingerie.com asked me to review something from their line of plus-size lingerie. Now, let me tell you this is one sexy web site…I hope you’re ready.
I honestly couldn’t decide what to pick, then I laid my eyes on the Flyaway Babydoll by Escante. It’s in this great bubblegum pink color, it just looked so fun!!
The first thing I was amazed by, is the fact that it fits in the breast area. I have a large chest and I am always spilling out of any store bought lingerie. I wear a US 16/18 and the 1X fits perfectly. The material is stretchy and soft, thus making it comfy. Their sizing chart is on point too! There is no underwire in the bra area, so you have to be prepared for that.
This is definitely an item that you’d want to hand wash, it’s a tad delicate. It’s made pretty well, but the edges look like they might unravel soon. So, I just have to be really careful with it. But it’s not something I’m going to wear daily.
Visiting Lingerie.com is pretty easy too, I just wish they had more of a selection. They have quite a few things, but I’d like a little more range of items. I’m all for products that make me feel pretty, feminine, and sexy. The prices aren’t too bad either for this bargainista, I’m going to keep coming back to see what they carry next.
If you’re looking for lingerie to make you or that special someone happy, then I’d definitely make time for a sexy visit!
Hey lingerie lovers! I finally have an update on the extended size line Cosabella is creating! They have just launched pre-ordering of their “Never Say Never ‘Lovely’ Thong”!! There were even on Oprah the other day where women were allowed to pre-order as well! Sorry about all the exclamation marks but I’m really excited!
I’m honored to have been a part of the testing and research on this line. So, I can tell you how wonderfully soft and comfy this thong is. The lace is divine! I wouldn’t expect anything less from a sexy piece of lingerie made in Italy.
They are offering two sizes: Small/Medium (US 12-16) and Medium/Large (US 18-22). This is the only color they are offering now, but they will make other colors available soon.
