As the temperatures begin to dip, our minds turn to the festive season – and everything feels funner and fancier! What better time to treat yourself to some new lingerie to glam up your festive camming?
Whether you’re treating yourself or looking for additions to your wishlist, lingerie companies really step up their game over the winter gift-giving season. For plus size cammers though, this can present a problem.
Often, even plus size lingerie doesn’t appear to be made with the plus size body in mind. Truth: wispy lace is gorgeous, but it’s never going to support 40 FF boobs! Thongs are fabulous, but they’re not always the most comfortable option if you’re plus sized.
Selecting plus size lingerie successfully is all about knowing your figure and looking critically at the outfit before you buy. How thick are the straps? Will they cut in? Are the cups moulded and wired? Is there boning? Are the knickers full brief or thong?
Some people find wearing lingerie intimidating, but it’s actually a great way to get into cam character or boost your confidence. It has a similar impact on our self-esteem as wearing a fabulous dress does. The key is getting it right. Let’s have a look at some retailers who can help nail this.
A babydoll is a fun, flirty way to wear lingerie. A particular favorite for those starting out to dressing up, it offers a sexy look that’s uncomplicated and safe.
This Dragonfly Babydoll from Curvy Kate is a great option for camming cuties with a bootie. The longline flared skirt is figure flattering and can camouflage if you’re self-conscious about your tummy or bum, whilst the see-through material hints at what’s beneath. A nipped in waist accentuates hourglass curves. The underwired cups are supportive, which is so important to creating a flattering silhouette and killer cleavage.
The trend for straps on lingerie often seems to have bypassed the plus size section – but not so at Scantilly, a noteworthy subsidiary of Curvy Kate.
In Voodoo, they have managed to mix bewitching straps with a super supportive bra and figure framing knickers. This is a high impact look on cam! Despite being available in plus sizing, there is still plenty of flesh on show.
If this feels too exposing for you, maybe Captivate is more your cup of tea.
Gorgeous high-waisted knickers give a retro feel, whilst strapping adds a modern twist. Wide straps and a supportive bra will maximize your curves and make you feel comfortable and look amazing.
Lovehoney have just launched a new plus size lingerie campaign, and we are living for it!
Under the hashtag #sexyisnotasize, Lovehoney Lingerie offers two new ranges, Rendezvous and Belle Amour. Both run to a size 28. Offering multiple options with boning, wiring, panelling and wide straps, it’s clear that thought has gone into these new pieces.
Lovehoney is one of the few retailers who offer ranges in both base and plus size, and for this I love them. Rendezvous has a bondage style dominatrix-esque feel to it, with a striking black and gold color scheme. Belle Amour leans more towards the romantic, with black lace overlaid on a red base. Framing and panelling make the most of every curve.

Seven ’til Midnight
Seven ’til Midnight have a fabulous range of colors in their plus size lingerie, refusing to conform to the traditional reds, pinks and black options. Expect emerald green, rich purple and stunning jewel tone blues. Colored lingerie looks fab on cam, and having a rainbow cam wardrobe enables you to tailor your outfit to your mood or change it up according to season etc.
Also, plus size doesn’t always mean big boobs, and Seven ’til Midnight have a fabulous range catering to the smaller busted plus sized sisters. If you don’t need the scaffolding up top, make the most of lace cups teasing at their content.
Playful Promises are another great brand promoting body confidence and positivity. With a focus very much on “dangerous curves ahead,” Playful Promises are unapologetically sexy.
Their lingerie sets are often accompanied by high waisted knickers, which really enhance an hourglass shape. Pease, can we see more of this?!
Sets like the very gothic Gabi Fresh x Playful Promises “Holly” set or the more-understated-but-still-stunning “Hedy” set from their general range are an investment for a memorable look in your clips. Wide shoulder and back straps make them super comfortable and supportive, whilst those bigger bottoms are perfect for those of us with… well… bigger bottoms. I don’t always feel comfortable in a thong, and it’s still the most common default bottom for lingerie.
