Nordstom is one of our favorite places to find plus size clothing, so it's no surprise that they have an excellent selection of plus size lingerie as well. They carry Ashley Graham's sexy lingerie line as well as Elumi and consistent favorite Hanky Panky.
This expansive website has everything under the sun in terms of lingerie. From smooth t-shirt bras to kinky leather accessories to comfy sleep shirts. Bottoms come in sizes large - 6X and bras in 36-50 band size in numerous cup sizes. They use many shipping methods and their return policy makes shopping the site a breeze, not to mention their price points are about $40 on average.
With locations all over the country, Torrid is an excellent option for those of us who are unsure of our sizes. They carry panties up to size 5 (equivalent of size 26/28) and bras in various sizes up to 48DDD, with a selection of F and G cups as well. Torrid is a great place for your lingerie staples as well as some novelty pieces (think Batman boy shorts, not something from 50 Shades of Grey.) Their price points are around $55 per bra.
Yes, you've seen this brand in department stores for years, but not necessarily in your sizes. They have up to 46I in some of their bras on their website! Wacoal has plenty of pretty picks, but their expertise, is more functionality. Look here for higher quality pieces that will be the staples of your lingerie drawer.
Another brand that you've seen in department and discount stores, JMS (Hanes, Bali, Playtex brands fall under this name) has a great selection of functional bras and shaping panties. Their selection goes up to 50G in many styles and 58I in some styles. It's a great shopping destination for us that are well endowed.
