Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!
But that's the short and sweet version...learn more here:

Ever since I had to start wearing a bra, it seems like finding the perfect size and fit has been such a struggle. While bra shopping, I've always encountered these common problems: the cup size was too big, the band size was too small, and comfort was no where to be found. Keep in mind that I usually shopped for bras at stores like Khols or Target. However, when I officially crossed over into the plus size world, it was then that I noticed a few shops that actually make bras for curvaceous women, like me. So here are a few of the places that I know I count on finding practical, well-fitting, and sexy bras!

1. Knix
Get ready for extreme comfort with these underwire-free Knix bras. These bras are suitable for plus size women, as they mold and shape to your body, allowing you to breathe, stretch, and go about your daily activities comfortably. Because the bras are wire-free, they don't rub or cause irritation, which is something that I experience with any other underwire bra. Aside from providing comfort, these bras also mitigate boob sweat, and they are versatile and compatible with any kind of blouse or top you wear. Wearing these bras essentially just feels like you are wearing a tank top or camisole—they are that comfortable! The brand carries cup sizes A through E.

2. Curvy Couture Intimates 
This is my go-to place for sexy bras. I love a simple bra that provides support, a little extra push up, and an enticing design. My favorite bra from this store is the Tulip Allover Lace Bra (As seen here: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL). The brand carries cup sizes B through H.

3. Torrid
Torrid was the first place where I found a bra that actually fit me comfortably. These bras are made exclusively for plus size women, so they provide just the right amount of support, push up, and comfort. Torrid also carries a variety of styles so that you can pick out the perfect undergarments for the blouse or occasion you're going for. The brand carries cup sizes B through G.

4. Parfait Lingerie 
Parfait Lingerie (As seen here: FALLING IN LOVE WITH ME) is another brand I love to shop for sexy intimates and cute lingerie. While some of these other brands run pretty true to size, Parfait runs a little small, which is fine because they do carry a wide range of sizes. I always suggest sizing up one cup size and one or two band sizes when purchasing lingerie from Parfait. The brand carries cup sizes A through G.
