Lingerie Inspiration for those Special Occasions

Looking for some special lingerie for yourself or your significant other? Unsure of how to navigate the lingerie minefield out there? Blessed with a fuller figure? If the answer is yes, then this handy guide may be just what you’re searching for.

As many may already have experienced, shopping for quality lingerie products can be quite difficult, especially for those who boast a fuller figure. While style is important, we also need to find highly affordable items that can be purchased in a matter of minutes. To take the guesswork out of these variables, let's take a look at some great gift ideas for you or someone you love.

Briefs and Shorts

Full-figured body types require briefs and trunks which accentuate natural curves in a sensual manner. These dark purple Triumph Amorette maxi briefs and Freya Oh La La shorts are two prime examples of such an approach. Whether you require lace for a tempting look or a solid fabric, these and other styles are certain to please.

On the other hand, you might be hoping to show off a bit more skin with a sizzling thong. Sheer black varieties and indigo see-through models are the ideal choices here. Of course, this selection is as varied as the sizes which are offered. While sex appeal cannot be denied, comfort is still key. With numerous colours, designs and materials to choose, you can rest assured that there will be something available for most shapes and preferences.


Bra shopping can be somewhat frustrating for fuller-figured body types. It can sometimes be difficult to combine that much needed support with a delicate design. However, it’s not impossible. Sites such as Lingerie by Victoria hold a wide array of style options. These include:

  • Bras with side supports.
  • Half-cup or full-cup models.
  • Minimisers
  • Seam-free varieties.

Side supports are excellent for those with larger busts and full cups provide extra comfort while never sacrificing their sex appeal. Molded cup bras and curve controllers are other ideal options which can be considered.

While the design and shape is indeed important, let's never forget that the visual style is also critical. Whether you choose a see-through lace version, a satin finish or a non-wired bra with intricate designs, you can be assured that you will be accentuating this   area with class and sophistication. What better way to give your partner a great Valentine's Day, or other special occasion treat than with a selection of these bras? Finally, we should always remember that these garments can be matched with pants, thongs, briefs and other lingerie accessories to create that enviable whole-body appeal.


If you or your partner are both feeling a bit playful, a simple bra-and-panty combination may still leave a little something to be desired. Full lingerie costumes are ideal choices in this case. As you may have already expected, there are a number of different themes which you can select. A handful of the most popular include (but are absolutely not limited to):

  • Wonder Woman
  • Nurse
  • Clown
  • Witch
  • Devil (a great choice for Valentine's Day)

The excellent aspect about these and other outfits for plus-sized women is that the only limits to their variety is your own sense of style and imagination. Whether you want to be a flapper from the 1920s or show off those killer curves in police uniform, you will have literally hundreds of options at your disposal.

Garter Belts

This is actually a very important accessory that is often overlooked. The great aspect in regards to a well-placed garter is that it is able to add that bit extra to a well-designed outfit. They’re available in a nearly endless variety of styles, colours and designs. While traditionally used for a wedding, who is to say that they are not just as appropriate for other days?

Sleep Shirts

Why reveal everything at once? The previously mentioned products are mouth-watering ideas, but there is indeed something to said about the slower, more subtle approach. These are quite comfortable, yet sensual at the same time and like other clothing items, they are offered in a wide array of styles and colours. From lace and see-through styles to solid fabrics, the end result is absolutely worth the wait!

Inspirational Ideas

Now that we have seen the wealth of items to choose from, how are you to know which is the best for you? Part of this decision will be based around the tastes of your partner. Do they prefer naughty or nice? Have they ever mentioned a specific fantasy before? This can be a bit intuitive, so take your time before making the ultimate decision. And, of course, the main idea is to embrace what you love!
