All That Glitters is Gold: Holiday Plus Size Lingerie

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Curvy Couture, VAVAlingerie & Playful Promises models shine in gold

When I think about holiday plus size lingerie, sexy marabou-lined pieces, Santa babydoll dresses, and big red bow satin teddies come to mind. While shades of red, wine, and emerald green may dominate holiday lingerie offerings, there’s another shade peeking its way into the holiday season: gold.

Whether it’s a subtle metallic hint in delicate lace or a bra completely covered in gold sequins, this hue is an easy way to get into the festive spirit. Gold lingerie will transition easily to other seasons (and definitely have you ringing in the New Year). All year-round, lingerie can be a gift of self love and what better time of year than the holidays to remind yourself that you and your body are good as gold!

Gold Fringe Bra

Playful Promises Major Velvet Tassle Bra - Gold Holiday Plus Size Lingerie

Major Velvet Tassle Bra Playful Promises, $39

This Playful Promises bra has been out for a while, and it still leaves me in awe every time. With wine-colored velvet and gold shimmery fringe detailing, this is pretty much made to have you turning the bedroom into your own personal tinseltown.

Bow Detail Teddy

The gold is subtly woven through this mesh teddy, but I like the idea of the gold taking the backseat to a big velvet pink bow.

Gold All Over Lingerie Set

This lightly lined balconette bra features an all-over gold tone satin with eyelash lace.

Metallic Detail Thong

Usually I don’t think of thongs having much detail to them beyond a simple lace, but this one brings elements of gold that make a statement.

Gold Halter

At first glance, this teddy almost looks beige. But upon closer inspection, it’s totally made from intricate metallic gold lace!

Gold Bow Stockings

Black Thigh High Stockings with Bows - Gold Holiday Plus Size Lingerie

Black Thigh High Stockings Cherrylingerielondon, $11.12

It’s painfully challenging to find plus size hosiery. Add an element of gold, and it’s nearly impossible! These stockings with a gold bow detail fit up to a  UK size 22 (US 18). While that’s certainly not the largest plus size range, it’s a good start.

Golden Era Bodysuit

Dottie's Delights Golden Era Bodysuit - Gold Holiday Plus Size Lingerie

Golden Era Bodysuit Dottie’s Delights, $89

Harken back to the 1970s with this vintage-inspired gold lace bodysuit.  This handmade piece from Dottie's Delights is made up a to size 3X with custom sizing available upon request.

Luminous Lace Bralette

Curvy Couture Lace Bralette - Gold Holiday Plus Size Lingerie

Luminous Lace Bralette Curvy Couture, $62

I first spotted this Curvy Couture lace bralette at CURVE back in February of this year, and I’ve been awaiting its release ever since. It was one of my most anticipated releases and upon receiving it, the gold lace detail did not disappoint.

Sequin Set

Playful Promises always delivers when it comes to statement-making lingerie and this mesh and gold sequin bra is no exception.

Camisole Bralette

While the range of this bralette could be deeper for plus sizes, I love the minimalism of this design. Although customization options don’t mention it, it’s worth asking if larger plus sizes are available since this is an Etsy designer.

So what are your thoughts? Will you be trading in your red and green lingerie for gold this holiday season?
