5 Plus-Size Friendly Lingerie Lines

So, I’m not exactly sure who decided that women with larger-than-average boobs wanted to wear the lingerie equivalent of an orthopedic shoe all the time, but most well-endowed ladies that I know have dealt with the often overwhelming task of finding attractive, and even sexy bras and lingerie. After years of lusting after pieces from Agent Provocateur and Kiki de Montparnasse, and being unsatisfied with the only occasional pieces I can find that “work” for me, I’ve found a list of go-to staples that understand my hips and curves might be a little, um, curvier, with a range of styles from coy and coquettish to risqué.
Elle Macpherson Intimates
The day I discovered that Elle Macpherson makes bras up to a G-cup (and bottoms up to an XL), was a day my bank account was very sad. While not all the pieces in Macpherson’s line run the full range of sizes, the ones that do are a happy addition to any bedroom arsenal.

Dentelle Lace Underwired Bra in Black, $65, available at Net-a-Porter; Dentelle Lace Culotte in Black, $30, available at Net-a-Porter; Dentelle Lace Underwired Bra in Pink, $65, available a Net-a-Porter; Dentelle Lace Culotte, $30, available at Net-a-Porter.
Hips & Curves
As an all plus-size lingerie retailer, Hips & Curves has one of the most diverse offerings—from everyday underpinnings to leather bustiers and French maid costumes.

Black Silk Georgette Chemise, $54.95, available at Hips & Curves; Steel Boned Leather Corset, $159.95, available at Hips & Curves; Garter Belt with Front Ruffles, $42.95, available at Hips & Curves.
Evans
The UK’s top plus-size high street store has a formidable lingerie department, stocked with lacy, well-priced pieces (we’re talking about $40 for matching bras and knickers), with one of the widest size ranges I’ve come across.

Black Mesh Bra and Knickers Set, $48, available at Evans; Satin Playsuit, $35, available at Evans; Black Lace Bra and Short Set, $32, available at Evans.
Wacoal
Wacoal has been a long-time favorite of mine for making comfortable and supportive bras with pretty details. Their full-figured line runs from a 32-D to a 40-H, and bottoms run up to an XXL.

Retro Chic Full Figure Bra, $58, available at Bare Necessities; Retro Chic Hi-Cut Brief, $32, available at Bare Necessities; Delicate Notion Full Figure Underwire Bra, $43.50, available at Bare Necessities.
Hanky Panky
Hanky Panky is known the world-over for their super comfortable lace boy shorts and thongs, but how many people knew they also made plus size pieces? With sizes ranging from a 14 to 26 in addition to their standard sized pieces, there’s something for nearly everyone.

Original Rise Rolled Thong, $20, available at Hanky Panky; Signature Lace Boyshorts, $35, available at Hanky Panky; Signature Lace Long Sleeved Top, $62, available at Hanky Panky.
