Whether you love a vintage lingerie look, or just want to spice up your underwear drawer, plus size corsets are a great option for adding a little sexy style to your intimates wardrobe. From lavish custom corsetry to inexpensive fashion corsets, there are many different styles and price points for individuals curious to try out a new look. But first, it helps to know what you're looking for in a corset design.
If you're simply searching for a pretty piece of lingerie to spice up your routine, or you're on a budget (and really, who isn't?), there are a host of "fashion corsets" available from traditional lingerie retailers that offer options for a fun, sexy look with a little light support. If you're looking for something more serious for tight-lacing or waist training, then you want to stick to sturdy fabrics, steel boning, and, if possible, custom sizing. While these features can be pricy, the structural demands placed on silhouette-altering corsets require a higher level quality and a more precise fit.
So, if you're looking to expand the horizons of your intimates collection, you want to try out an "underwear as outerwear" look, or you need the perfect accessory for a period costume, these 13 plus size designs should add a fashionable and feminine edge to your style. From sequins to satin, lace to leather, these sexy corsets offer a lot to love.
