How To Choose Lingerie For The Plus-Size Women
Looking great in a super sexy lingerie is no more a dream for a plus size woman. However, when you are all set to go for your lingerie shopping, there are certain things that you should keep in mind. There are several different items that you can buy when shopping for underwear like thongs, girdles, corsets, g-strings and bras. They come in quite a large collection that it can satisfy even the persnickety. Given here are some tips on how to choose the right lingerie for a plus size.

Choose The Right Size
You have to know your body structure well, before heading out for shopping. Many women believe in the myth that buying smaller lingerie would make them look thinner. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Trying to squeeze into smaller size wouldn’t make you look thinner, but would warp your shape, and you will end up with bulging fats from all the wrong places. It will make you look heftier, not to talk about, leaving you really uncomfortable. On the other hand, buying bigger size lingerie would also give you a heavy look, making you appear larger. Choosing the correct size is of utmost importance and for that, you can take the help of a measuring tape. Measure your size regularly and most importantly on the day before you plan to shop for lingerie.

Choose Something That Flatters Your Body
One of the most important things, which you need to keep in mind, while you are shopping for lingerie, is that you need to choose something, which flatters your body and is not just an “in” thing. Make sure that you get something that accentuates the best parts of your body while hiding the rest. For instance, you can go for a ‘minimizer bra’ if you have bulky breasts or if you have wider waist, you can try corsets to give your waist a slimmer appearance. A wobbly tummy is always a problem with most plus-sized women and this can be solved by using briefs especially made for this purpose.

Avoid using stretchy fabric as this can cling to all the wrong places like boobs and belly.Always try to go for a fabric like cotton etc, which would not only be comfortable but will also give you a good shape. Try different lingerie and check, which suit you best. Whatever you buy should keep everything in one jiggle-free place.

Speak Up
More often than not, we end up buying things, which the store mangers recommend even if we are not very comfortable with the choice. Be firm and decide on what you want to buy before you go for the shopping. Search online and ask your other “plus size” friends about the choices. If the style or the size doesn’t suit your taste, don’t buy it. It is better to wait for few days than to end up looking like a ‘big mama’.

Guide to Boy Shorts

Boy ShortsWhat are Boy Shorts?

Boy shorts are a relatively new underwear option and are gaining in popularity. Some even claim they are replacing other panties. They are crossing generational lines and being worn by grandmothers and teenagers alike.

Boy shorts are tight and extremely short shorts cunningly intended go beneath clothes. They are designed to prevent others seeing from your underwear in low cut pants, but provide more coverage than thongs and even bikini underwear. Some versions provide almost full coverage of your rear, while others only provide partial coverage — think the lower quarter of your rear. They are cut low at the thigh to cover the hips and upper part of the thigh. In addition, these panties tend to gloss over problem areas of the hips and thighs, which may be why they are so popular.

Why Should I Wear Boy Shorts?

Boy shorts are incredibly comfortable, much more comfortable than thongs. They tend not to ride, but stay in place; though some versions do ride a little. They are perfect for lounging around the house, or wearing beneath pajamas or work out clothes. Some versions are perfect for tighter clothes and dresses too. In addition, they are designed to go beneath low rise pants, a plus if you lean over a lot and wear low cut pants.

Boy shorts are very sexy, some say sexier than thongs. They cover the rear, though not fully. We all know men are visual creatures, and many men find the little part that boy shorts show to be appealing. Men feel like they’re seeing something they shouldn’t. In addition, these panties cover hips and the upper parts of thighs — something most women appreciate. Many designers have added lace, bows and ribbons onto different versions making them more feminine and sexy.

But there is one problem with boy shorts. Some versions do leave a visible panty line, though options to eliminate this are getting better and better. Versions of this panty made from a micro-fiber and without lace, ribbons or embellishment are your best bet. If you are wearing tight clothes and are worried about visible panty line, a thong is still your best bet, though well constructed boy shorts are a close second.

Boy shorts often look great with a sexy camisole rather than a bra. This is great for lounging around the house on hot evenings or for wearing for someone special. If you’re worried about support, wear a bra beneath your camisole or try a camisole with built in support.
