Not gonna lie…my shopping weakness lies in the intimates section. In an effort to put my money where my mouth is, I’ve been shopping around for more size inclusive lingerie brands who share my passion for representation of more bodies in fashion.
Bralettes, Bandeaus, bodysuits….I can’t get enough. Pretty matching undies, and unique colors/patterns/fabrics? SOLD.
Thankfully, over the years there’s been a lot more accessibility in this department. Not only is there more diversity in sizing, but you don’t have to spend a pretty penny for pretty panties anymore.
Back in 2018, I responded to Victoria’s Secret’s CEO size shaming society, with 10 Lingerie Brands You Can Support Instead of Victoria’s Secret, but it’s high time that list got updated and revised!
For me, there’s a lot of power in pretty underthings. Although I usually wear yoga pants and hoodies to my night shift, I always feel more “put together” with my matching chonies underneath….and the fact is, I just genuinely enjoy buying/wearing the stuff…there’s really no need to justify, but I just love it that much!
Whether you’re into the plain Jane briefs or love a lacy little racy number, I’ve rounded up some of the best places to get just what you’re looking for to elevate your underwear drawer!

I learned about this brand when I was approached about an opportunity to collab with them, and I am SO GLAD I did!
Tomboy X literally has the slogan “Underwear for Any Body” as their tag line. With sizes XS-4X, and gender neutral options, they’re truly killing the game. They’ve managed to not just be a size inclusive brand, but one that looks out for representation for the LGBTQ+ community, as well.
This is gonna sound kinda weird, but I have a ton of their sets with bands on the waist and bust and they are the softest, silkiest bands…and all the items I’ve gotten so far have been so well made. I’m a briefs/cheeky underwear type of girl, but I think it’s awesome that they offer boy shorts, and different boxer lengths as well. When you go to learn about their sizing, they offer a visual representation of a Size L and a Size 3X, in addition to handy sizing guides. I’ve done campaigns with them for Black History Month, Self Love during Valentines Day, and most recently trying out their new swim selection. Love this company so much!
They very clearly are on a mission to make an impact in the industry and make cute undies for all…and I really, really respect the execution. Fun prints, diversity in sizing/models, and they give back! They give a portion of their proceeds to several different amazing organizations, and they disclose all the info on their site. They’ve donated over $100K in the past two years, alone.

I didn’t wanna love Kim K’s new line. I made myself a promise last year that I was no longer going to ‘shrink to fit’ with all kinds of industrial shape wear and smoothing panties, blah blah. So when Skims dropped (and they had extended sizes AND they didn’t cost extra AND other plus sized babes said they live up to the hype), I eventually took interest but hesitated on purchasing. Then she dropped the fuzzy loungewear sets, and I was like “Ok, girl, let’s see what you’re working with.”
Size range is XXS(00/0)-5X(24/26), and there’s a cool option to see the items on a model in your size, which I really appreciated. The pricing isn’t astronomical, and there’s a lot of options, although they tend to sell out most sizes/styles when new or back-stocked items drop! You gotta be quick! I really like the loungewear vibes of the bralettes and undies, and I’m still waiting for the chance to try the body tape! As far as the shape wear goes, I’m really impressed at the variety of styles…like shorts with one leg for dresses with high slits, and EVERY ITEM comes in EVERY SIZE. That’s what I like to see! Also, there’s 7-8 shades of shapewear for “nudes,” which is pretty phenomenal. I’m excited to see the line expand, I hope she keeps bringing it with the representation and diversity!

I love True & Co. so much! It all started with the iconic , designed to fit like a second skin (my words, not theirs) while giving you a wire-free inch of lift. This bra has made a morph into tank tops (which I wear a LOT), and they also make really pretty pieces that are still super comfy, even if we threw some wire back in.
I recently gave the Soft Lace Unlined Balconette Bra a try in Striking Red (thanks, True and Co. for gifting it to me!) with the matching thong panty and it was SO comfy! Even though it’s the conventional underwire bra, the lace really is so soft and buttery, and the band wasn’t too thin! I got this in the 42 DD and it was a perfect fit! Initially, when I found this company a few years ago, I may not have called them a size inclusive lingerie brand…but they’re consistently rolling out more styles in more sizes and I love the expansion!
I wear an XL in the line, but they recently expanded some styles to a 3X, and I applaud them for taking the time to do it WELL. They are constantly offering deals (like two of these iconic bras for $100 with code 2FER100) and 5/$50 panties (the seamless undies DO. NOT. ROLL. Hallelujah)!
Also, I recently spotted a small selection of True and Co. at Target stores! I only saw up to size XL (which I wear in their wire free styles), which is a great way to try them on, if your local store has them!
I love this company. RiRi really roped me in with this brand concept, and there’s been no going back for me since 2018. Consider me a Savage hype girl, but I have a gripe or two, as well. While I consider them to be a size inclusive lingerie brand because they started offering plus sizes from the very beginning, there’s still a few things to consider.
It’s so interesting to me when brands make plus sizes but immediately make the silhouettes bigger. A lot of the VIP-exclusive sets from Savage replace a hipster or cheeky with a high waist panty for the plus size range. Not loving that. Sometimes I want a skimpy ass bralette, too, Rihanna. Also, the sizing runs pretty small. Granted, Savage is a subsidiary of brands JustFab, Fabletics, and FabKids…so if you have any experience with those brands, you know the sizing woes therein. So, Im a 42E and XL panty generally, but in Savage I wear a 3X bralette (the line only goes to 3X), a 2X panty…but my band size usually works out in my favor without a problem. Weird.
Nevertheless, save for a little trial and error in sizing, the quality is definitely there! Also, the customer service is great! It’s easy to return/exchange items, and when they say it’s exclusive…it’s for real. If you love it, get it…because once it’s gone (especially the monthly curated VIP boxes) it probably isn’t coming back.
New VIP members currently get 2 for $29 bras/bralettes and 50% off sitewide (even the super cute matching sets they drop constantly!
There is a VIP membership recurring payment to take advantage of these deals ($49.95/month, which you can skip before the 5th of the month to avoid being charged), but this also means you get exclusive sets and promos that others don’t get access to. It’s also really easy to cancel if you decide you don’t want to get charged/remember to skip each month.
My first nice bra came from the Cacique line at Lane Bryant, and I’m still loyal. Over the years, I feel like the quality has suffered a smidge, but they consistently deliver with super cute, comfy and trendy barrettes with matching undies! And this post isn’t about swimwear, but my fave sparkly string bikini? It’s from Cacique, too!

The whole vibe of this line is my jam. Bright colors, beautiful design…you can tell that Annika, the founder, is the kinda girl you wanna go to brunch with. The details on these pieces are impeccable, and the size range goes from XXS-6X.
They even offer a “Cheekie Mail” subscription, where you get get $75 worth of lingerie starting at $49/month, delivered to your door! The best part? For a small premium you can even have your items custom made to YOUR measurements….and I’m always here for that!
With the tag line, “More Sizes for More Bodies” and everything under $22, this is a favorite of mine since they dropped awhile back! They have a lot of the extended size options in my local stores, but of course, you’ll find more of what you’re looking for shopping online (with free shipping or ship-to-store, why not?!?!)!
Pretty silhouettes, nice colors, and super inclusive ads are all big hits with me and I have really liked the quality of the pieces I’ve purchased so far! My only beef? The cute bodysuits and babydolls don’t come in anything bigger than an XL, and that’s not ok. They’re really cute, and I don’t see why that hasn’t been remedied by now? Otherwise, Auden has several wire-free options for the current quarantine situation, as well as pretty lace numbers to jazz up your wardrobe, too!
So, don’t despair! There’s something sexy OR sweet out there for you, if you do a little digging! Where do you currently find your favorite lingerie? Tell me in the comments! I’ll keep updating this list, and I’m always on the lookout for more good stuff to add to my own lingerie drawer(s)!
