Last year, I skipped doing the Valentine’s Day Shopping Guides. Between moving to California, traveling to the Salon International de la Lingerie in Paris, and then attending Curve in New York, I just felt too overwhelmed. But I realized, right around the time I usually would have been writing the guides, that I missed doing them.

As a plus size woman, wearing lingerie is something that has helped me learn to love my body and what better time to practice some self love than over the holidays? Whether you’re looking for something naughty, something nice, or something just plain comfy, get in the holiday spirit by giving yourself the gift of festive plus size lingerie.

Because I hate the idea of purchasing something I’ll only wear once, I often find myself looking for pieces I […]
Growing up plus size, I was in need of a bra long before any of my friends even saw a single hair on their legs. I looked for supportive bras but nothing too sexy. It was also a difficult balance of finding comfort without looking frumpy. As I got older, I still didn’t want to be seen as sexy, but I was also scared that not being seen as sexy was a reflection of my worth.
