Disclosure: The products shown below were received as review samples. All opinions are my own. As a plus size fashion designer, I often ask my community what they would like me to design. One of the most common responses is thigh highs that fit plus bodies. I always said if I had the ability to make hosiery, it would be a million dollar idea. I didn’t think thigh highs that […]
Note: This lingerie was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. The bandage/bondage trend continues to dominate my lingerie wishlist. For the most part, handmade luxury lingerie is inaccessible to me either because it’s not available in my size or it’s not in my price range.

If you do find something affordable you often have to sacrifice support, quality and design. Because of this struggle, I was excited to try out three different lingerie sets from Canadian-based retailer, Wonderform because they offer all bras starting at $19.50. A complete bra and panty set is only $28, about half of what I’m used to paying for a bra alone.
