Plus-size lingerie for the curvy vixen
In order to be intimate and enjoy yourself, you have to feel good about yourself.
As a plus-size woman, I know how time-consuming and nerve-wracking it can be to find the perfect outfit. When it comes to finding sexy lingerie the struggle can be even more intense! So often we're worried about cellulite here or "fluff" there, but realistically, have you ever undressed for someone and then been asked to leave? No? That's what I thought. Regardless of who you're in bed with, and how many times they've seen you in your skivvies you want to look and feel phenomenal. In order to be intimate and enjoy yourself, you have to feel good about yourself.
I know what areas I want to accentuate and which I'd rather not expose. That can be tough in the bedroom, but I have found some fabulous frocks that will have you feeling fabulous whether the lights are on or off.
I've taken some of the guesswork out of the search for the perfect treat to add to your trousseau. Here are some of my favorite pieces that will make your Valentine's Day look perfect.

If this is your first Valentine’s Day with someone, I would recommend going for something simple instead of overly sexual. If you've been together a while, spice it up and be bold; opt for the feisty French maid or a strappy bondage-inspired choice. Find some heels and consider wearing them to engage your legs — and keep them on even after your lingerie is off. Above all, the most important part of this process is loving your body no matter what size it is. Confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear in or out of the bedroom, so hold your head high and embrace your inner goddess.
