Former Plus Size Model Deborah Friedman has gone from feeling pretty in front of the camera to making other plus size women feel pretty in their unmentionables. "Our plus size lingerie is designed to celebrate your beautiful curves and accentuate all those assets." Deborah started Plus Size Plum in 2007 with the hopes of helping more plus size women celebrate their curves and potential through sexy lingerie. Her goal is to provide "fresh, updated styles, great quality and outstanding customer service". And in case you're wondering the adorable name refers to "the sweet, sexy plum in all of us".
Selection: Plus Size Plus has a growing selection of baby dolls, body stockings, chemises, corsets/bustiers, gowns, lingerie, panties, robes and bath accessories.
Sizing: Plus Size Plus has sizing information listed for 1x - 6x. Not every item covers this size range. The majority are sized in combinations like 1x/2x, 3x/4x etc. and "one-size-fits-most" (from 5' - 5' 11" up to 3X or 220 lbs). I only found two items that came sized to 6x. Corsets and bustiers were sized 38 - 44.
Styling: Moderately sexy to revealing with a few sleazy thrown in for good measure.
Pricing: Lingerie items range from $32 - $80. A few familiar items I found a couple dollars cheaper at Hips and Curves.
Availability: Ships to U.S. and internationally. Orders over $100 are shipped free via USPS Priority Mail within the U.S unless you want it shipped quicker. They have an excellent shipping price range to Canada from $8 - $28.50 depending on how much of a hurry you're in. International orders are $30.
Overall Impression: The website is very pretty, free of clutter and professional looking, and not sleezy. The ordering process is easy to follow. You won't be overrun with product selection which isn't necessarily a bad thing; it means less time spent weeding through a lot of sour grapes to get to the fresh fruit (sorry couldn't resist). Plus Size Plum has the added convenience of gift wrapping and the opinion of a Personal Shopper to assist shoppers with gift planning for bachelorette, bridal, women's and pajama parties. The site has a blog that provides a personal touch by providing a commentary on lingerie, enticing a man, self esteem and more. It is updated a couple times a month and has an RSS feed to keep track.
