Sexy Has No Size: Best Lingerie for Women with Curves

When I look at lingerie catalogs, my first thought is that I probably would never wear something so revealing.  Not because I’m a prude, but because my body carries a little more padding, to put it delicately, than those sexy models.  If there is a lingerie plus size that would fit my shape, I should allow myself to wear it and feel like a temptress for a night, right?  I’ve seen plenty of plus-sized women who look great in the more revealing outfits, so why do I deny myself an opportunity to feel voluptuous and seductive?  Part of it is because I’ve been conditioned by society to think I have to conform to the latest stereotype of beauty.

Society, Stigma, and Stereotypes: What Defines Beauty?

If we look back through the decades, the idea of a beautiful woman has changed dramatically.  Let’s begin with the “Roaring 20s” and see how “sexy” has changed through the decades! 

In the Roaring 20’s, the ideal woman was one who was flat-chested, downplayed her waist, and had a trim, boyish figure. Curves were squeezed into tight girdles and bras that flattened everything out. I’m glad that’s over!

Moving on to the golden age of Hollywood in the 1930s through the 1950s, the concept of beauty did an about-face.  Now, the ideal woman was more feminine.  An hourglass figure that was curvy and large-breasted was sure to generate more than a few whistles and bug-eyed stares.  Every girl wanted to be like Marilyn Monroe and be desired by millions of men. I’m not sure much has changed; I think we all still want to be Marilyn Monroe!

In the 60s, and into the 70s, another transition from what was considered to be a beautiful woman.  People in this era preferred the thin, willowy, long-legged body type.  Thin was in.  Bras were out. 

By the 1980s, workout videos were the rage, and women were considered beautiful if they were athletic, toned, tall, but slightly curvy. 

The 90s brought a whole new idea of beauty for women to struggle to achieve.  The “look” that was popular in this decade included being thin, pale skinned, waifish, and androgynous. 

From the 2000s to today another shift occurred in society’s perception of beauty.  The current beauty standards include large breasts and butt, flat tummy, and looking thin but healthy.  Plastic surgery and botox have become the norm for millions of women.

So, it seems that about every ten years or so, women have to do a complete makeover if they want to keep up with the latest beauty trend.  Seems exhausting and expensive.  Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it seems like the beholders keep changing their minds about what they like!
