There is something sexy about a woman who is confident enough to wear lingerie no matter what they look like. It shows a willingness to embrace every part of themselves, even the supposed flaws.
Just because you might have a big butt or a small chest, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be proud of what you have. Whether you are plus sized or more petite, we as women should be more accepting of our bodies, and while there is nothing wrong with wanting to be healthier, it is also important to embrace the way we are.
And one supermodel is hoping to help make this happen, by also making it more common for real women, women of all shapes and sizes, to wear lingerie in real life (outside of the pages of a magazine or a TV show).
Joan Smalls, who is not only a supermodel, but also an actress and now a designer, wants lingerie to be more inclusive of women of all shapes and sizes. Which is actually what drew her to Smart & Sexy, a lingerie line offered at Walmart, which she helped worked on.
Speaking to E! News, Smalls shared her thoughts on the all-inclusive nature of the Smart & Sexy lingerie line, pointing out that everyone has a different shape or size to their bodies. She explained that her mother has a different body type than her own, and there were plenty of times when she would see her frustration when it came to shopping for something as simple as a bra.
As part of her mission to make wearing lingerie in real life more natural and commonplace, Joan Smalls helped to design a line of both swimwear and lingerie that she believes embraces all body shapes and sizes. At the same time, these products are also beautiful and offer a little something for all tastes.
While we here at Food & Dating have previously discussed why you should be buying yourself lingerie even when you are single, the fact is that lingerie is something that all women should want to rock, even if it is just for themselves. And having a line of lingerie that is all-encompassing and all-inclusive makes it easier for every woman to do this.
Lingerie can help to reshape the way you look at yourself and your body. In fact, it can even help to build up your confidence because it can help you feel sexy even on your worst day.
As Joan Smalls said, "You always have to believe you’re beautiful, no matter where you go." And the right piece of lingerie can really help to make that happen.
The supermodel even offered up some tips and tricks for women looking to make lingerie an every day part of their wardrobe. This included tips for making the lingerie the star of your outfit (of course if you are heading to work this might not work, but even wearing lingerie under a power suit can make all the difference in your confidence levels).
One suggestion that Smalls had for women looking to highlight a beautiful piece of lingerie (in particular a bra), was to wear a sheer top with a sexy bra underneath. Even a sexy body suit, camisole, or corset can pop under a sheer top.
She even shared that she has been known to wear a sexy bra as a crop top, which she called an "edgy" thing to do. For her, the look is daring and sexy, while also making her look good.

Although you may not want to run around just wearing a bra as a crop top, there is nothing wrong with showing a little skin and a little lace at times. Especially during the summer, sheer tops not only look good, but can also help keep you at least a bit cooler. And if you turn it into a true fashion statement by showing off something sexy underneath, then that makes it even better.
Whether you choose to add vibrant colors to your lingerie or even something simple and black, your lingerie is all about embracing your body and size.
