    Hey guys,

    In a desperate attempt to ramp up both my sex life and my body confidence me and the OH have recently started investing in lingerie. This would be all well and good if it wasn't forthe fact that so far, the few things we've bought make me look rather ridiculous.

    Okay, so maybe a "few" things is an exaggeration, but the main item of lingerie I own (Adore Me Lace plus chemise) literally looks like i've just pulled a tank top too far down and gives me lumps and bumps in places that i've never seen them before!

    So, with the christmas money from family burning a hole in my pocket, i've decided to go lingerie shopping and was hoping for some advice as to what to get to make me look and feel great.

    I'm 5'10 / 11 and a UK Size 16-18 with most of my weight on my stomach - so I tend to buy LoveHoneys 1X stuff.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nex

    Right. Now a lot of this comes down to personal preference so in the end it's really up to you for your personal style. If you don't like chemise looks, would you be interested in something more flirty/girly or a bit more kinky?

    Admitedly, I'm only 5'5'' so I'm quite a bit shorter but I'm also a 16-18 and I absolutely LOVE body suits. They seem to fit most and are genuinely sexy. Something like this really works for me:

    Have you tried a basque? I've just reviewed this one and loved it:

    Not as clingy on the hips and very form fitting. Good luck!x

    Your OH might see things differently . He might like your lumps and bumps.

    Hi and welcome! Remember that Lovehoney have an excellent returns policy, so you can return it easily and quickly if you want.

    Now, lingerie recommendations - it really depends on what sort of style you're looking for and what body type you have. I too am a size sixteen but a few inches shorter than you, and I LOVE this bodystocking - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=32649
    They have a regular size one too if the plus size comes up a little big, and it's in the 2 for £20 offer too!

    I suggest having a look at Lovehoney's lingerie buyer's guides, they're really helpful!

    Good luck!!

    Hi I would recomend this http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=31893 it looks beautiful, and I think it would ecsentuate your bust while the stomach is flattened and smoothed.

    If your not happy with your other item return it and exchange it for something you might feel better in.
