For women who prefer the traditional styling of a brief, manufacturers offer a wide variety of plus-size briefs. Womens briefs have a waistband that sits at the naval, or just below it. While some briefs have high cut leg openings, most will be at the top of the thighs. Briefs have the advantage of full rear and side coverage.
Many plus-size briefs will be made of a smooth microfiber with covered elastic at leg openings and waist for superior comfort and fit. Traditional plus-size briefs can also be constructed of silky soft nylon, often with feminine lace trim. Some styles have a back center seam to help keep panties in place and flatter your natural curves. Plus-size briefs may also function as shapers, with control panels to smooth tummy, hips and rear. Sizing is perfect for larger women, with some brands ranging to a 5X to fit hips that measure 50-51"" and waists up to 37"".
