The Ruffled Two Layer Petticoat from Hips & Curves is one of my favorite, and most versatile lingerie pieces. It is two layers of soft, sheer nylon with a ruffled edge and an elastic waistband. It is 16″ long and is advertised to fit sizes 1x through 4x, and it actually does. Comfortably.
You can wear the petticoat lower on your hips and it will come closer to your knees, or you can pull it up under a top or corset and let a little cheek show. What I love, is that even though it is sheer, it isn’t really all that see through. I wore mine to a fetish party one evening with lace boyshort panties underneath and I didn’t feel naked. This coming from a girl who doesn’t even wear shorts. If you want, you can even layer them for a more full look (see photos here for sexiness). They pair perfectly with stocking, panties and even bloomers.
I love that this petticoat is perfect for home, fetish events or costumes. It comes in pink, white, black and red and is cheap enough that I can afford to own more than one. It is beyond comfortable and I generally just love it. If you’re looking for a better fitting, higher quality alternative to the petticoats you find at Hot Topic, then this is the one for you.

The Stretch Lace Crotchless Boyshort from Hips and Curves is one of my favorite flirty lingerie pieces. I find that it is difficult to locate quality lingerie in plus sizes that is risqué and sexy. But as I already mentioned in my post about H&C, they are here to help.
The Crotchless Boyshort comes in 1x/2x and 3x/4x and runs pretty true to size. They are generous enough that you needn’t worry about ordering up “to be safe” or any of the things you might do with more traditional lines. They come in three colors, all with contrasting ribbons White with Light Pink, Black with Hot Pink, and Red with Black. The panties are stretchy lace and have an adorable corset style lacing up the back. They sit fairly high on the hip, and leave quite a bit of your bum exposed. I’d almost call them a thong/boyshort hybrid of sorts with the way they fit (see photo).
However, I find them super cute and comfy. They are easily kept on during sex or worn under a skirt for easy access at say… the movie theater. I liked them enough that when the pet’s dog ate my first pair (there’s a theme with dog’s eating my stuff…) I ordered myself a new pair. You can pick them up directly from Hips and Curves, and I’d suggest signing up for their mailing list, as they have great sales!
