Below are some ideas.

Old Navy Introduces New Lingerie Collection For Plus Size

29 Mar

I have such a love hate relationship with Old Navy. I really like their clothes for curvy chicks. But I was disappointed with them when they discontinued their plus size from their stores. Old Navy is definitely on my good side right now by supplying lingerie for curvy women. The prices are reasonable, $29.50 for each and if you buy 2 or more $25.  The panties are $10.50 for each and if you buy 2 or more $8. For these women with a really big bust their bras go up to 46DDD!!! How great is that???  

I’m really excited about this. Everyone women wants to feel sexy underneath her clothes. Below are some samples of their lingerie.
