Designer Lingerie in Plus Sizes - AKA Pleasingly Plump Sizes!


I had the pleasure of attending the Interfiliere NYC fabric show recently - held this time at the very accessible Altman Building on West 18th Street (where we used to have the Lingerie Show and I wish they would go back to having it there instead of the dreaded Javits Center - do you hear me, Curvexpo?).

And there a fabulous cocktail/networking hour at the end of the show, where I had chat with my friend, the ubiquitous Ted from Body Magazine, who has the inside beat on the lingerie world because he literally talks to EVERYONE in the business!

So when Ted says, the lingerie market needs PLUS SIZES, you have to believe that the lingerie market needs LUXURY LINGERIE IN PLUS SIZES.

Believe it or not, we already do plus sizing.- which I prefer to think of as Pleasingly Plump Sizing.

If you immediately see visions of silken tents, yards and yards of billowing fabric and lace, you couldn't be more wrong.

My collection has always focused on unstructured styling that accommodates a wide range of shapes, not trying to contain the female form in corsets and underwires, but enhance and flatter with color, laces and delightful details...


Every piece in the Frances Smily collection is hand made with the strictest attention to detail to maximize your beauty...SO whether you are a Skinny Minny or Pleasingly Plump...WE GOT YOU COVERED!
