Cool, covetable plus size lingerie you’ll actually want to wear is no longer as hard to find as it used to be. There are so many pretty, delicate and downright sexy options out there that are way better than the functional (and not very fun) plus size intimates of years’ past. Ready to dip your toe in, but unsure where to start? Follow these lingerie lovers for some instant inspo.
The Lingerie Addict
Cora Harrington, the brain behind @thelingerieaddict and its accompanying blog is the definitive expert on all things bra and panty (and garter and thigh high…). She covers topics like the history of lingerie, styling ideas for how to wear hot little underthings out and she gives the scoop on extended and hard-to-find plus size bra sizes. She even wrote a book on lingerie, In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Love and Wear Lingerie, that explores lingerie for every budget, size and occasion.
We love influencer and plus size model Ruby Nelson’s effortlessly cool street style (check out her wedding style for serious boho vibes), but especially love her lingerie posts. From boudoir photo shoots to introducing us to lingerie brands we didn’t know we needed (like @heymavensxo), we think Ruby is a gem.
You might remember model, influencer and activist Nyome Nicholas-Williams from the hashtag #Iwanttoseenyome which trended in 2020. After a stunningly beautiful (and totally tasteful) photo of the model was taken down, the hashtag rallied support for Nyome and challenged Instagram’s censorship policies. She regularly posts inspiring lingerie looks that we can’t get enough of and the page @bewhoyoudeserve, which she co-founded, is dedicated to mental health and self-love. We love you, Nyome.
