On November 13th in New York City Victoria’s Secret taped their annual fashion show.
I tune in every year because I enjoy watching the glamorous models strut their confidence on the long elaborate runway and watch the great performances but I know that my 40-35-47 Latin curvy frame will never fit in any of their selections. So today I want to share Christina’s Secret.
Here are some of my favorite places to shop for sexy lingerie for the “real size” women.
Hips and Curves
Located in Southern California, Hips and Curves.com opened for business in 2000 and has been going strong ever since! They offer a secure, private and entertaining shopping experience while bringing you the latest and greatest in plus size lingerie styles. They carry a wide assortment of lingerie from sweet and demure to smokin’ hot styles for plus-sized women everywhere.
The dream began in 2007 when full-size CEO was in the market for a sexy and luxurious piece of lingerie for a special occasion. She searched high and low at all of the well know lingerie retailers. She even searched well known plus-size boutiques; nothing piqued her interest. Everything was either not cut for her ample size 18 body, not sexy enough, or was just simply not made from quality materials. She thought that she couldn’t be the only real-size woman having this issue, thus, Intimates Plus was born.
This fall Super Plus size model Ashley Graham introduced her lingerie collection for Addition Elle. “The pieces were inspired by bras in my personal wardrobe that I found to be both beautiful and supportive….”
Originally launched in 2000 under the brand name Full Figure Design, the new lingerie division is a complete revamp and rebrand of the collection for the Ann Nahari woman. “We have upgraded the whole collection with better fit and fabrication,” says Ms. Rasheed. “The new collection reflects both sexiness and comfort with styles that are on trend.”
