Viva Voluptuous Lingerie Collection
Viva Voluptuous is a brand new lingerie and swimwear line dedicated to outfitting plus-sized women, offering pretty corsets, lingerie sets, swimwear and hosiery to flatter your curves. This UK-based brand offers bras in band sizes 36-48 and cup sizes D-GG, making this a wonderful option for busty women who need both a fuller cup and a larger band. The brand offers affordable pieces and on-trend designs that are both feminine and sexy! This brand offers plus-sized women fun strappy options, lovely lace embroidered designs, lovely corsets and hosiery all with the curves of a plus-sized woman in mind. The brand designs and manufacturers their own collection using soft satins, pretty laces and supple chiffons to create lingerie sets that are both beautiful and sexy.
Liz Willis, the owner and founder of the company, was inspired to create her brand due to frustration when shopping for herself. She had a hard time finding the same fun and flirty lingerie and swimwear styles for plus-sized women that she was used to seeing in core-sizes only. She decided to design her own! Each piece is designed in the UK and manufactured in the EU using trusted seamstresses.
The brand sells through ASOS or you can shop directly through their online site. Viva Voluptuous hones in one what is lacking most in the plus-sized market, and that is affordable lingerie that is sexy and flattering to a curvy woman. You won’t find many beige and cream color-ways that often make up the majority of mass-produced plus-sized lingerie. Viva Voluptuous uses gorgeous, sheer deep sky blue material on their Skye Blue Lace Bra, which features an unlined 3-panel cup design with bright blue straps and a beautiful floral leaf motif at the top of the bra cups.The blue lace embroidery almost gives the illusion of a shimmering design, and it’s really quite beautiful! Pair the bra with the matching bottoms to complete the look.
The brand’s Ecstasy Harness Bra utilizes the scrappy trend, creating supportive lightly padded satin cups with black harness straps over the neckline of the bust. The matching bottoms offer a cheeky little strapping detail over the stomach, and when paired with the matching garter, it’s a perfect boudoir set! If you’re looking for something a little more colorful and sexy, the Ecstasy set also comes in a scarlet red colorway!
The unlined Pure bra, features sheer white lace cups, wide shoulder straps for added comfort, with a lovely torque style motif that adds just the right amount of beauty to this dream bra. The matching panties means that this set could easily make for a wonderful piece of bridal lingerie! The Lara Black Lace Kimono is comfortable and pretty, made of smooth sleek stretch black lace and soft draped kimono style sleeves, making this robe an absolutely beautiful piece to wear alone or to be paired with one of the brand’s other lingerie sets.
One of the other stand out pieces from this collection is the Esmeralda bra which offers a flirty and fun print! Esmeralda features an unlined bra with sheer white cups and contrasting neon green heart shaped embroidery along the cups. The little lime bow at the center gore of the bra really brings the whole design together, creating a truly fun and playful design we don’t often find in plus-sized lingerie. The matching brief makes this such a fun set for day or night, and instantly infuses your lingerie wardrobe with a seriously fun pop of color!
The brand also offers plus-sized hold-ups, which match nicely with their lingerie sets and are Italian made and offers a generous size to ensure a good fit for curvy ladies. They offer a line of corsets that can be worn in the boudoir or styled as outwear, and fit up to a UK size 30.
Viva Voluptuous also has a really trendy swimwear line that includes both one-piece swimsuits and bikinis. Their Arielle collection features a sleek basic black color way, and the design is available as a bikini, tankini or one piece. A great basic, that works for any wardrobe! All of the bikinis and bust areas of the swimwear offers support through light padding, so you can feel cool and confident wearing their swimwear at the beach or pool! Their Mermaid collection takes a foray under the sea, with the shimmering mermaid scale bikini style or tankini. Perhaps my favorite of the collection is the Leopard One Piece which features a beautiful leopard print with light padded underwire cups and black harness strapping, giving this swimsuit a cute retro-look while maintaining a on-trend modern look.
