When you think of Valentine’s Day what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Love. Candy. Roses. Everything red and pink…the list can really go on forever. One thing that came to Chasity Garner Valentine and Cece Olisa, the founders of The Curvy Con, they thought about being sexy. How do you define sexy for yourself?
As I scrolled through plenty of the pictures that women from all over posted, I realized that Hotline Week is perfect for SOACG. I’m all for encouraging women to take the risk to step out their comfort zones and reach the next level of confidence, but this was a test for me. I have never owned any lingerie till one day I said F it and ordered a set from Forever21. I put it on and really didn’t feel comfortable because this is new territory for me. I continued to look in the mirror and literally started to feel good the more I stood there and admired my body. I was feeling myself so much I took pictures and posted one on IG (srry mom lol).

🚨SWIPE WITH CAUTION 🚨 YOU’VE BEEN WARNED 🚨 I wasn’t going to join in but why shouldn’t I?!? I’m always ready to show off in a bomb ass swimsuit or anything that shows a little skin, but why was I so worried to post this? . . . Owning your sexy is the first step to anybody else embracing it. No, I did not buy this lingerie for somebody’s son, I did it for me. I’ve never owned any because why would I? I have nobody to show off for, but in all honesty I do. Im doing this for me! If I feel like taking a few pics for myself, I will. If I want to look sexy for once and not cute, I will. . . . So when @thecurvycon @ceceolisa & @garnerstyle said it’s #hotlineweek I decided to show out for myself and hopefully show you that there’s no reason not to feel sexy!! Buy that dress with the back out. Show a lil thigh in that dress/skirt with a high slit. Buy that two piece swimsuit that you’ve been eyeing for months. Buy that lingerie for you sis (you’ll be more than prepared when you can show it to somebody else 🌚) . . . No matter what makes you feel sexy do it for yourself before you do it for somebody else! Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk ✨ #SOACurvyGirl x #Hotlineweek #effyourbeautystandards #psblogger #servingchocolate #hermovement #selflove #honormycurves #thecurvycon
That’s what Hotline week was all about; owning your sexy however you express it.
I then realized that many ladies like myself don’t own any lingerie because they don’t know where to turn. Yes, you can get pieces and sets from Forever 21, Savage X Fenty, and a few well-known stores that everybody knows about. What about the brands that cater directly to plus size women and ones that cater to all sizes. The list highlights 6 brands that have the perfect set of lingerie for you (and for somebody else to admire).
I came across Hips and Curves while doing my research for this post. They are a plus size lingerie brand that offers beautiful pieces from corsets, bodysuits, and even the perfect robes to go with the lingerie sets. They definitely are budget-friendly, and with the Valentine’s Day sale going on I don’t think you would want to miss out!
I’ve known about Playful Promises since Gabi Fresh partnered with them and created her own collection. Even though they are based out of London you can still order from them no matter where you live. They want to be able to provide women of all sizes with playful, flirty, and a little dirty lingerie that will have anybody drooling. If you can’t tell from the picture below, go and do some investigation for yourself. You’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. The prices for each set vary, but you won’t break the bank. Who wants to do that anyway when it won’t be on for long? 😅😏

5. Monif C
If you don’t know about Monif C, let me guide you from under the rock you’ve been living under lol. She has been dominating the plus size industry for 10 years with beyond beautiful pieces; swimwear and apparel. She’s a legend that leveled up even more when she released Lucky 13, the lingerie collection back in Oct. Today she continues to bring the heat with these affordable pieces. If you think her clothing is amazing just wait till you see more of L13!
The sexual happiness people. And let me tell you something, that is not a lie at all! They had me shook when I was scrolling on their website. Some might compare them to Adam and Eve, but I believe that their selection of lingerie for plus size women is AMAZING! Priced right where I know I would like to pay for lingerie. Its fun, sexy, and ready to be worn by you. Check them out because trust me… I already have!
You know when you’re in doubt when it comes to anything, the next best place to get exactly what you want for the low low is Amazon!!!
Hopefully, you find something on this list that catches your eyes so that all attention can be on you. May the many Valentine’s Day sales be in your favor!
Happy Early V-Day
See you in the next one
