For feeling extra sexy any time, plus size see-through lingerie is an absolute must. Whether you only have a bra or a full collection of possibilities, you should have at least one transparent item in your collection, especially since there are so many styles available.
Plus Size See-Through Lingerie Choices
Sexy transparent lingerie doesn't have to be just fantasy wear, nor does it have to be impractical. You can get matching bra and panty sets, baby dolls, chemises and robes. You can get sets just for a wedding, Christmas or Valentine's Day. See-through also doesn't mean there is no mystery. You can find items that are semi-transparent and made of patterned lace or mesh that give a good hint of what's to be seen, but still invite further investigation.
Improvements in lingerie design are such that you also don't have to compromise on support when you opt for something sexy and revealing. A transparent bra can still give you full support and comfort for a day at the office and a night on the town.
You can find great selections of plus size see-through lingerie at any quality intimates shop. At About Curves, which specializes in plus size lingerie, you can choose from babydolls, chemises, peignoir sets, teddies and costumes that will all offer see-through possibilities.
Of the babydolls alone, there are:
- Be My Valentine. A red sheer babydoll with an empire waist and full skirt. The cups have velvet-flocked hearts, as does the matching G-string. There is a bow at the cleavage and both the dress and thong are edged with lace for the ultimate in femininity.
- Black Magic. A body-skimming black lace babydoll with a matching sheer jacket and full-seat bikini. The cups have underwire and the straps are adjustable so that you can achieve your best fit. Additionally, there is a double row of elastic across the top of the back, making for an even better fit. The jacket features flattering Victorian sleeves and the lace is soft, making for a comfortable, sensual outfit.
- Perfect in Ivory. A bridal set in elegant ivory. The underwire lace cups, adjustable shoulder straps and two rows of elastic at the back make for an elegant fit, while the sheer skirt and tiny thong garner a lot of attention. The matching jacket features lace cuffs that match the lace on the cups.
- Sleepless Nightie Set. A spaghetti-strap nightie in black rosette lace with a matching sheer coat and full-seat bikini. The seamed cups have scalloped edges and the elastic across the nylon back offers comfort and support.
- Forever Lace Bridal Set. At once elegant and sensual, this is a more subtle choice in plus size see-through lingerie. It has a scoop neckline and stretchy lace with flattering princess seaming. It comes with a matching short-sleeved robe that features scalloped lace at the edges.
Bras and Panties
The popular online shop Her Room has a large selection of see-through bras, many of which have matching panties. Again, you can opt for a full reveal or a hint of skin - whatever suits your fancy. For a flattering, sexy fit, try the Chantelle Cachemire 3-part cup bra. Available in sizes up to a 44F, the cups have sheer, embroidered tulle tops sitting on a base of elastic, designed to create the look of evenness in the bust. There is plush-backed elastic on the top and at the back to help create a perfect fit. Leotard styling minimizes any back fat and helps prevent straps from slipping.
For a more daring look, the Lunaire Sevilla embroidered demi bra features a sheer front with delicate embroidery, while the center panel and underwiring provide support and comfort.
Caring for Sheer Lingerie
The more delicate nature of sheer lingerie requires mindful care. Make sure your nails aren't scratchy when you wash the items to reduce risks of snagging and avoid heavy scrubbing or wringing. If you choose to use your washing machine's delicate cycle, slip your laundry into a lingerie bag to reduce the chances of damage. Be sure to use the cold setting, as well. A sheer bra or nightie should last as long as anything else you own if you take these extra steps to maintain it.
