One of the complaints I frequently hear from my plus size readers is that there aren’t any nice, sexy pieces of lingerie (like bustiers, corsets, and merrywidows) available in their size. Well I guess Elomi’s been getting the same e-mails I have because they’re out to solve that with their gorgeous ‘Maria’ basque. I’ve seen this item in person at Eveden headquarters in NYC, and I have to confess, it looks even better face-to-face than it does online. The Maria basque is constructed of satin and lace. 3 part cups offer support, while the back of this merrywidow utilizes hook and eye closures. And if you’re a bride, this piece also comes in white…perfect for wedding gown underpinnings.
The Elomi ‘Maria’ basque is available in sizes 34E through 44G and retails for $115. The matching thong is $34, but in case you’re not a fan of thongs, HerRoom also has the coordinating brief for $32 (and in sizes up to 4XL). What do you think of this piece? Is it something you’d add to your lingerie wardrobe?
