Great pieces of lingerie really are the building blocks of a wardrobe. A well-designed bra and pair of underwear that fit flawlessly underneath the perfect dress or that brand-new top you've been eyeing for months make it all work. Curvy girls in search of the best plus-size lingerie, look no further. We've rounded up the brands designing the very best pieces here.

From designers who dream up special pieces in beautiful lace to brands that have the ultimate functional undergarments with seamless finishes, these are the ones you'll want to add to your cart and your top drawer. And if you're looking for the pieces you’ll love the most, take these words of wisdom from lingerie line Lonely's founder and designer, Helene Morris.

"One of the most important things is to find a piece you love that makes you feel confident and beautiful," she tells us. "We truly believe that women with larger bust sizes shouldn't have to compromise on great design. Technically, structural elements—including wider straps, higher coverage, fuller wires, and reinforced panels—are very helpful in creating a wonderful fit for larger cups. Fabric selection is also a key consideration. We focus on high-quality laces, which give great support and wear well over time."

Go on to see and shop some of the brands designing the best plus-size lingerie.


Who can say no to colorful, comfortable lingerie? Lonely has you covered. The brand has a "comfort first, lace second" approach, leading the two styles to go hand in hand for the most luxurious-feeling pieces of lingerie that are also size inclusive.

Savage X Fenty

Rihanna's lingerie brand might be the gold standard when it comes to out-there lingerie pieces that offer more sizes than just XS to XL. If her Savage X Fenty fashion shows are any indication, it's that this brand isn't for the person who's into understated and muted lingerie. 


No list on here would be complete without the Kardashian-backed brand coming in an array of different fabrics, materials, and sizes. I've tried it myself, and I'll be honest—it doesn't get better than Skims. The brand may not have the most daring color palette all the time or lace-trimmed accents, but it doesn't skimp on comfort, a major plus in my book.


Wacoal is known for its ultra-comfortable bras—so much so that a Nordstrom reviewer called its back- and side-smoothing T-shirt bra their "holy-grail" product.

Fleur du Mal

Fleur du Mal's iconic, lace-filled image is perfect for those seeking handcrafted, high-quality lingerie pieces that come in larger sizes. Most of the brand's best-selling offerings come in a Fuller Cup option, expanding the available size range significantly so everyone can feel comfortable and confident in what they're wearing.
