It’s all about sex, love, and relationships here at Miss Millennia Magazine, which means feeling good about yourself in every way. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a lot of attention is given to presents between couples.
Lingerie is one of the most significant gifts given during this season, but for some, the struggle to find lingerie for either themselves or their loved ones can leave them feeling lost. While Victoria’s Secret is probably the best-known mainstream lingerie brand, they have a reasonably typical type they sell to, and it’s not for everyone.
The clothing industry is filled with a lot of uncertainty about the production of garments. Ethical clothes are essential to many people to ensure they support brands that pay their workers well. For people wanting to purchase from an independent and honest brand that isn’t too expensive, look no further than Naja.
Naja is a San Francisco-based company committed to educating and empowering single mothers in Columbia to work in their factories and produce their products. In addition, a percentage of each sale goes toward supporting these mothers who have helped to make this socially conscious brand a Kickstarter success story. Each piece also has some surprising details, such as printed inside cups or hidden inspirational sayings to add a little twist and brighten your day. You can’t go wrong buying these for yourself or a loved one!
Full Bust Lingerie
There’s a difference between plus-size and full-bust lingerie. “Full bust” refers to the letter cup size, starting around a DD/E cup. This is when bra engineering gets a bit more complicated than the standard A-D sizing. “Plus size” refers to the band size, starting at around 38-40.
For those with a full bust size but a smaller band size, try Curvy Kate. Curvy Kate launched in 2009 and is now huge in full-bust bras. They’ve got curvy girls covered with cup sizes from DD to K and band sizes from 28-44. Plus, their bras are beyond beautiful!
Plus Size Lingerie
Hips & Curves is a company that understands its target customers. This affordable brand isn’t afraid to showcase the sexiness that comes with being plus size. Their store has a full range of plus-size options.
They have lingerie, sleepwear, and even costume outfits. If the beautiful designs don’t draw you in, the prices will!
The consensus seems to be that maternity bras and panties must be bland and beige, but that’s not true. You can have beautiful and comfortable lingerie while pregnant. So many brands cater to pregnant women, but I would say some of the best are HotMilk Lingerie and Cake Lingerie.
Both brands range from cup sizes B–H and 32–42 for band sizes. If you look through these sites, you won’t see maternity wear; you’ll see gorgeous lingerie.
Despite how much attention breast cancer receives, there aren’t many options for mastectomy lingerie on the market. Royce lingerie from the UK does have beautiful options for post-surgery & mastectomy bras that are comfortable and affordable while also fitting with the needs of women (such as adding pockets for prostheses). This site also has a community for post-cancer or post-surgery women about the best options and advice possible for them.
While I love Victoria’s Secret and its beautiful sets, they aren’t the only options on the market, and they certainly don’t cover every body type. Women deserve the best options available to enjoy themselves and their bodies thoroughly. Even if you don’t have a Valentine’s Day date this year, you won’t regret treating yourself to these beautiful options!
