One of the things I get asked about most is plus size lingerie. Not shockingly, there’s a lack of beautiful, affordable options for plus size babes in most stores. But the online shopping options are growing every day. If you hadn’t noticed, people everywhere are taking a huge cue from fat people, and plus size lingerie lovers have revitalized the high-waist trend. Yep, we’re taking credit for that one damn it – even Kim Kardashian’s new line of cotton underwear have a high waist style!
This post covers lingerie – the frilly stuff that generally is worn for special sexy occassions! If you’re looking for bras or panties check out this post! There is a small list of additional stores to check out at the end of the post, and as always I will try to keep this updated throughout the year with any new and inspiring stores that help meet the needs of the plus size community.
Here’s the deal with plus size lingerie- there are several places selling the same brands for virtually the same prices. So the trick to shopping for plus size lingerie is not to know every store out there, it’s to know a select few stores that carry unique pieces and a couple stores that have great prices on the things you can find just about anywhere!

PLUS SIZE LINGERIE
I’ve been shopping at Love Honey for a couple years now, and they continue to come out with better and better products, while also increasing their size range. Love Honey’s lingerie is made with the specific intention of being sexy and feelin’ yourself. If you’re like me, you only wear true lingerie when you’re getting down to business (and I don’t mean going to your office job). They have a huge variety of incredibly well priced pieces that are perfect for any occasion where you don’t actually need your lingerie to be functional… because you’ll be taking it right off! Sizes up to 6x, prices start around $15.
If you’re looking for affordable lingerie, Yandy is where you want to be! They have so many styles, and even carry plus size costumes. Prices start around $10 and they have sizing up to 5x.
I am OBSESSED with Solstice. They can customize anything in your size, and have ready to ship pieces up to 3x. They are the perfect 70’s trendy pieces that I want to line all my drawers with. They have velvet, and tassels, and sequin, and everything I’ve ever dreamed plus size babes would get out of lingerie. Their custom pieces start around $70 and they can make any size you need!
Our tried and true fat girl store, Cacique always has a few classic options that are a nice change from the super complicated, very strappy styles that are so popular right now. Simple, elegant, and let’s be real – most of us already have the credit card! Prices start around $30 and sizes go up to 32 in some styles.
Torrid continues to hit it out of the park with fat girl staples. Their bralettes are comfy and their panties always fit nicely. What more do ya need? Prices start around $20, sizes go up to 6x.
I am absolutely in love with the AS line of lingerie. Always unique and affordable I discovered this brand because of all the hype about their Butterfly Bra. Their lingerie is just as awesome! Sizes up to 26, prices start at $10.
I was a bit skeptical about this brand when I first saw it. It’s a type of monthly subscription but instead of paying for a set you basically sign up for a membership and then get a discount on a set. You can choose to skip any month you want and it hasn’t presented any problems for me. And I’ve got to tell you, their loungewear is the softest comfiest thing on the planet! They carry bras in sizes up to 46G and panties and sleepwear in sizes up to 4x, with some of the absolute cutest little sets I’ve ever seen! Update: I cancelled my subscription to Adoreme this Summer. I was so bummed about it that by November I had started it back up again. No more skepticism from me – this brand is amazing.
Most people are shocked when I tell them that I get a lot of my lingerie from Amazon. Because they carry so many name brands and have such great shipping (and return) policies, it’s always a great place to do any shopping where I may not know my size. Amazon carries brands like Elila, Comfort Choice, and Just My Size and has great prices on all of them. Even better, they often have a bigger stock of different sizes than some of the stores direct websites do. If you’re looking for one of the largest band/cup sizes on the market check out Elila, they make cute bras that even have matching panties!
There are a couple other places with plus size lingerie that would be worth checking out including – Evans, SimplyBe, and Yours Clothing. While they don’t have extensive or specialty lingerie lines they carry very cute stuff!
If you are searching for a plus size chest binder I recommend LesLoveBoat. They go up to 7x, and though they are a bit expensive they are well worth it. Underworks.com also sells binders that go up to 3x, and are a bit less expensive.
