It’s no secret that it’s hard to find nice, affordable lingerie options when you’re plus-size. Just look at the sheer number of popular retailers and brands who don’t even make anything over a size 18. And when you do find plus-size lingerie, you often have to settle for styles and colors that are less than desirable—and since underwear is a fairly intimate part of your wardrobe, this lack of stylish options can really get under your skin.
But then something remarkable happened: Target decided to start stocking its shelves with a full range of sizes—and not just a few plus size lingerie target items here and there, but tons of styles and colors in every size from 0 to 36W. And you know what? They look great. The pieces aren’t just sexy, they’re high-quality and available at reasonable prices.
The best part is that these new styles include all the cute lacy things that smaller sizes get to enjoy year-round—but now they come in fun patterns and colors that are more flattering on fuller figures. These options have always been out there, but they’ve typically been pretty far off the radar; now they’re front-and-center on Target’s website along with every other style.
And now that the collection is here, I’m pleased to report that this is one case where the reality lives up to the hype. It’s definitely worth taking a look for yourself, because there are a lot of designs I think even dedicated lingerie shoppers would be happy with. The pieces are made from nice fabrics—I was especially fond of the black lace with gold embroidery and details on the balconette bra—and they strike just the right balance between edgy and sexy and cute, with lots of lace and mesh.
What I especially love about this new collection is how much variety there is. There are so many different cuts, styles, and colors available that pretty much everyone can find something they really love (or at least a couple pieces to try). And in addition to bras and panties, there are also camisoles, slips, shapewear, and more options than you might expect.
What is your reaction to this?
