2016 has come to a close and over the past year, the plus size lingerie industry has seen some positive changes that I would love to see continue through 2017 and some not-so-great moments I want to leave in 2016. When looking back on the past year of plus size lingerie, I think about it in two distinct ways: what innovations and styles were made for plus size lingerie products and how were those products sold to consumers.
I know I’m really coming down to the wire here, but I promise these last three Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guides are worth waiting for. Of all the guides, the $100-$250 price range is my personal favorite to shop within because this is where you tip over into real luxury. I’m talking made-in-France, 100% silk, limited edition type of luxury – the kind of lingerie you’ll value for years to come, not just a few months after the holiday.
The second Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guide is ready to go, and, as the title says we’re upping the stakes a bit with beautiful lingerie gifts from $50-$99.99. I love this price category because it’s low enough to be accessible to many but also high to buy something truly special. For example, today’s tribute to holiday lingerie shopping contains everything from velvet fringed bra sets to dramatic vintage-inspired peignors to luxurious elbow-length lace gloves.
With the holiday season in full swing, you may find yourself with a long list of gifts to buy for your family. Or maybe you’re stuck trying to find that perfect Secret Santa gift for that coworker you’ve only talked to once. Over the holidays, it can be easy to remember to treat everyone but yourself. 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.
Is there anyone more iconic in the lingerie world than Bettie Page? The “Queen of Pinups” has been an influence on American culture for generations, inspiring trends in beauty, fashion, and art. It’s hard to imagine a world without her; nearly everyday, I run across a Bettie Page reference of one kind or another.
