    they say if your buying a basque you go the next size up to what you are, they are some nice things in the plus size which says fits all with no size on so your wife will not know good luck

    Thanks so if the item says it will fit 16 to 18 are you saying I should get 18 to 20 it is really confusing.

    what is it you are looking at buying, some of the lingerie does have a bit of stretch to it ,and you can adjust the straps,i bought this http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=22023 in a 16-18 i have a size 40D chest and it fitted nice, it does have some stretch to it ,but i would have felt more comfy in the 18-20 in the boob area also the tummy area :) i guess it depends how big your oh is some 16 women are small some bigger :)

    shall just put a pic of me up in that so you can see my shape and size if that helps you,as i maybe bigger than your oh so would give a rough idea its very confusing i hope you manage to get the right size :) im sure she will love whatever it is in whatever size it is

    I would love to buy her a chemise or a nurse outfit or maybe a basque although that might be pushing it a bit I would also love to buy her stockings but she is a large 16 with 38c boobs. and has big thighs but I love every inch of her,I don't want to ruin the thought by getting something too small I know you can send it back but it would spoil it.

    Have you looked for any "one size fits most" lingerie?

    Just a thought...

    now that is a great idea Sum Sub the one size fits must seems like a perfect solution to these problems,but i find the one size fits most, for me it doesnt really fit above a 14,as the range starts from a size 8 upward its difficult for me to find a perfect one size fits most,being a 16 for us bigger ladies if you are a 16 upwards you maybe be pusing it buying a one size fits most :(

    could be worth a try though you never know it may well be a solution

    I see

    I bought my OH this: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=24779

    Firstly it is VVVVVVVVVVVV sexy, but secondly the entire back is lace-up, and could conceivably fit any size, all that would change is how much back is visible. I seriously cannot tell you how sexy it is!! Plus it is much shorter than it looks on the model, so bum cheeks a-plenty :)

    with LH's excellent returns policy you could always exchange the lingerie or clothing for a larger/smaller size if it doesn't fit

    I'd say avoid anything 'one size' I find most of the 'regular' sized items are supposedly suitable for sizes 8-16 which is clearly not true. I find most wouldn't fit anyone bigger than a 10-12. If you go for 'plus size one size fits all' she might be offended? That all depends on how she feels about her body though. The sizes here tend to vary from brand to brand so I'd suggest buying the right size as well as a size above and then return the one that doesn't fit.

    She is very body conscious but that is a good idea about getting two sizes and sending one back,certainly food for thought just had a look so much to choose from.
