Bought this piece on a whim and I’m so glad I did. It’s beautiful and flattering - which is sometimes tough with a large chest. Holds things in and up in all the right places.

Best Corset

Bare Necessities


Bare Necessities’ Dominique Juliette Strapless Corset is highly rated for its smooth, satiny feel and seamless look under clothes. We love the large range of sizes available. Oh, and P.S., a lot of women say they wore the white or ivory corset under their wedding dresses.

Sizes 30A - 52G
Black, ivory or white
Foam-lined cups
Removable, adjustable garter straps

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I tried every strapless bra made and was desperate to find something offering ample support for a one-shoulder gown for an important event. A wise friend (and former bra consultant) suggested that I try a corset and gave the Dominique brand high marks. When it didn't feel secure, she advised me to step down one size in the back (from 34 to 32) and Read more about review stating Lifesaver!up one size in the cup (from DD to F). That did the trick. I felt secure, supported and comfortable enough to dance all night.

The verdict is in: ThirdLove is top-rated by women for their comfortable, yet pretty bras. Consider features like padded, memory foam cups and, rejoice, no tags!

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I've had this bra for about two weeks and it is my absolute favorite. I used the fit finder and after one exchange I found the bra size that fits me better than any bra ever has. For a lace bra, it is incredibly soft and comfortable and doesn't show under my clothing, no matter what shirt I wear. It feels like I'm wearing nothing.

Best Thong

Hanky Panky


How pretty and feminine are these floral lace thongs by the aptly-named brand Hanky Panky? We are big fans of the scalloped edges and flattering high-rise cut, as well as Valentine’s Day-appropriate colors like lavender and hot pink.

Cotton lined

What Reviewers Are Saying:
These are the only panties that last wash after wash, and hold their shape and stretch. I bought these over a year ago, and they are in perfect condition. I am a 5'2" 135 lbs. and they fit perfectly. I dropped 20 lbs. and they still fit! Worth the money.

Best Stockings



Wolford is synonymous with quality stockings. This Satin Touch Stay-Up style comes in equally-sexy white, black and nude. The scalloped lace bands mean no slipping, all day. And reviewers swear the stockings will last long past Valentine's Day if cared for properly, making them totally worth the price.

Sizes XS - L
Matte finish
Hand wash

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I love these stockings. They really grip the skin and never slip down. They're expensive, but with normal wear and washing, my last pair lasted over A YEAR before I got a run, maybe even two years. I wore them often and I'm not that careful.

Best Plus-Size Brand



Over 1,900 five-star reviewers can’t be wrong about the Retro Chic Full-Figure Underwire Bra. Wearers rave about its comfort, ample support, and how the bra makes them feel slimmer and hella sexy.

Sizes 32D - 46H
Leotard back
Unlined cups
Hand wash

What Reviewers Are Saying:
As said so many times on here "worth every penny." Makes me feel sexy. It lifts and separates in a way that makes you look perky and slimmer. Wearing a 36G, have always been busty and gravity has taken its toll but this look is phenomenal. Very comfortable. I have six of them and have gotten rid of most all other bras. People also keep asking me if I lost weight which I have not. Clothes fit beautifully.

Machine wash

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I can't say enough about this beautiful piece of lingerie. The material is so soft and the lace is delicate. Truly stunning! I like how the 2 adjustable hooks in the back have 3 settings. It helped me fit into a medium perfectly (5'4 150 lbs 34D/36C) I was between 2 sizes but I actually went with the smaller & it worked. Hope that helps. This is really a unique piece for your collection!

Love, love, love. Perfect fit (true to size). Fabric is soft and luxurious. I am 5’5 and the length is proportionate. I could not stop myself so I bought two different colors.
