Hips & Curves Plus Size Lingerie Review & Giveaway! Ends 3/15

I'm a plus size woman and finding clothing that fits let alone is stylish is extremely hard to find these days. Even worse is trying to find sexy lingerie. Valentine's Day is over for the year but who says lingerie and feeling sexy should only occur one day a year or only on special occasions? I think lingerie can sometimes get a bad reputation that it is only worn by certain types of women. That is not the case. Sure, there is more daring and wild types of lingerie out there but for the most part, I just see lingerie as a way to feel sexy and feminine for yourself or for that special someone in your life. What's wrong with feeling sexy? Every woman deserves to feel sexy in my opinion, no matter what size they are.

So I recently found a great plus size lingerie website called Hips & Curves and they have it all! They have the hottest, newest and sexiest styles around for plus size women. They only cater to plus sizes and they believe you should flaunt those curves! I asked them if they would be interested in doing a review and giveaway with me and they agreed.

From the Hips & Curves Website:
Looking for a fabulous fishnet plus size bodystocking for that lucky guy on your third date? Or a bridal corset that fits just right under your wedding dress? We strive to stock the best selection of plus size lingerie and intimate apparel on the Internet and we've got everything you need to spice up a relationship, entice a new beau or just make yourself feel extra special.


REVIEW

I was sent 4 items from Hips & Curves.

Short Kimono Sleeve Robe
Garter Tank With Lace Up Back
Charmeuse And Net Long Gown
Sheer Stay-Up Stockings (2 Pairs)


All of the items I received are fabulous! The kimono robe is sleek and feels like satin when you wear it. It comes with a sash in order to keep it closed if you so desired. It is such a versatile piece that could be combined with other lingerie underneath, worn alone or just worn over a bra and panties. 

The garter tank is something that I have never seen before. It's like a regular tank top, only it's also a garter belt and has a pretty lace up back. I didn't post the picture of the back of this from the Hips & Curves website because it's a bit too revealing. It has 4 garters attached (2 on the front and 2 in the back) This fun tank could be worn with even the simplest of things like a pair of jeans or skirt or for the full effect, wear with thigh high stockings.

The charmeuse net long gown is simply put: Elegant. It's elegant from head to toe. It feels like satin when you wear it and provides a bit more coverage than the other pieces I received or that you may think is typical of lingerie stores. It has net cups on the front with an appliqued trim at the bust. The hem at the bottom is a ruffled style and in the back, it's a bit more open and has adjustable criss-cross straps.

The stay-up stockings are another item that I have never seen before. I have only seen stockings that either don't stay up properly or only stay up when combined with a garter belt. This was a refreshing idea to see. They have a lace trim at the top along with a silicone grip backing so they can stay up with or without garters.

I totally love all the pieces I received as they fit perfectly and make me feel sexy when I wear them. Hips & Curves sells much more than just what I reviewed. They have bras, panties, shapewear, apparel and much more. If you are a plus size woman, you NEED to check this place out.
