According to Merriam Webster the word sexy can mean "sexually suggestive or stimulating : erotic; or generally attractive or interesting : appealing". Despite this definition, the term sexy is subjective. If you asked three people to picture a sexy woman chances are no one would have the same image. What is sexy for one person may not be sexy for another.
Sexy isn't just about the clothing on the body, it involves personality, poise and a no fear attitude. The sexiest clothes on the dullest person won't make them sexy. Some people believe fat isn't sexy; again this is subjective. Look at Tony Soprano, Jack Nicholson, Kirstie Alley, Kathy Bates - perfectly sexy plus size people. Again, it is not one thing that makes them sexy. It is their looks, how they carry themselves and what they wear.
Sexy does not have to be sleazy. Sexy does not have to be about the amount of skin visible. Ask yourself why you want to be sexy and start from there. Finding sexy clothing for the plus size body is sometimes harder than finding regular clothing for the plus size body.
