Let’s take a minute to talk about a struggle. A struggle I’m sure a lot of women have when it comes to lingerie. I’d like to discuss plus size lingerie and why more companies don’t sell it. Some lingerie stores don’t carry lingerie past DD. Which is insane considering the average bra size in America is E. Even then what about the ladies who are above the average E? It's hard enough going into a store and not being able to find your size, but not finding anything close is just heartbreaking.
So why don't more lingerie companies cater to plus-size women?
To put it simply - its harder to find. Most companies that make petite lingerie don't make plus-size lingerie. Even though the size increase isn't recent, few companies are just now starting to adapt and learn how to cater to more women's bodies. However, a lot of this is still uncharted territory. The templates are completely different and there are more pieces involved. Underwires need to be designed to support bigger busts and straps need to be added to take weight off the back and shoulder. Finding companies who have gotten this down is a struggle.
Maybe it is a little harder to find, but every women needs a good bra! I’ve never understood why a lingerie store of all places wouldn’t take every woman’s body into consideration. Which is why I’m proud to be a part of one that does. At ANGIE DAVIS we try to make sure EVERY woman leaves our store happy. Rather she's an H bra or an A bra, rather she likes leather or lace, we have something for everyone! If you’ve been struggling to find lingerie due to sizing issues or limited selections, take a look at a few items from some of our favorite brands! Brands who have taken the time to consider curvier women and produce lingerie specifically for them. Then click over to the store because this list doesn’t even begin to cover what we have to offer.
Let's talk about our best selling plus-size bra first. Every lady needs a few good bras in her lingerie drawer and they don't get any cuter than our Curvy Couture Tulip Bra!!! This adorable bra comes in five different colors so you can find something that fits your skin tone, and it comes in sizes 36C-44H! This gorgeous bra is a classic balconette style, that gives your girls a life-changing lift. The lace lining offers a delicate, sexy touch. If it wasn't cute enough already this bra even has a little rhinestone jewel in the center for a little extra sparkle! Everyone needs a little extra sparkle in their life! To top it all off we have these matching Tulip Lace Boy-shorts to finish this sexy look. These shorts come in sizes M-3X!
Every woman needs a T-shirt bra. Our lacy, bejeweled bras are awesome but all of us have dresses or sheer shirts that require a smooth silhouette. These T-shirt bras offer just that! On the left is our Curvy Couture Black T-shirt Bra. This bra is super soft and offers coverage and support that will lay flat under your clothing. This lovely bra comes in sizes 36D-44G and also comes in nude. On the right we have our Curvy Couture Cotton T-shirt Bra. This bra is designed to be comfortable no matter what. This piece has moisture wicking that keeps you cool and dry in the summer heat, and it offers adjustable cushioned straps for shoulder comfort. This bra comes in sizes 32C-40H.
Have you been having trouble finding a strapless bra that actually stays up and supports your girls? This Curvy Couture Strapless Multi-way Bra is made for bigger busted women, so it's made to handle bust sizes 34DDD-44H. With soft cups and a stay-put strip around the band this bra won't be going anywhere. There's also the added bonus of multi-way straps so you can wear it seven different ways! Before we move on to our Teddies, and Babydolls take a look at this Curvy Couture Wire-Free Bra. This bra is amazing! Smooth sides eliminate under-arm bulge, wider cushioned straps offer shoulder support, and the molded cups give a supportive lift without pokey underwires. This amazing bra comes in sizes 36C-42H and two different colors, Black and Nude.

How cute is this?! Babydolls are perfect lingerie for everyone! Sometimes we need lingerie that is breathable and not form fitting. Babydolls are great because they show-case our breasts and usually tie right under the bust line. From there they flow out into this cute little dress that hides your tummy and gives you a cute feminine shape. This is our Coquette Merlot Diva Babydoll. This babydoll features adorable cap sleeves, soft underwire cups and beautiful lace detailing. This lovely piece comes in sizes S-4X!
Hello Babydoll! This is honestly one of my favorite outfits in the entire store. Mostly because its my favorite color - Purple!

This adorable piece comes in sizes S-4X!
Check out our Allison Babydoll! Isn't this adorable? Sheer but not form-fitting, so you can still show off those sexy curves! This cute babydoll is fitted at the bust line and tied with halter straps, so you don't have to worry about them falling down. The white floral lace gives this piece just the right amount of elegance! This piece comes in sizes S-3X.
I'm not even sure whether our Blooming Love Babydoll is more cute or sexy. The floral lace accents and elegant blue color scream classy, while the strappy lace cups scream sexy. Either way this adorable outfit needs to be in your lingerie drawer. It even comes with a G-string! Sizes S-3X!
Last but definitely not least, our Blooming Love Bra & Panty Set! iCollection is amazing!! This set features a non-padded bralette with beautiful scalloped floral lace accents and panties to match. This set comes in sizes S-3X.
