Types of Underwear for Plus Size Women
Any underwear can be plus size underwear — it’s just up to the underwear brand to do things right. At Uwila Warrior, we don’t simply add inches to create our extended sizes. Instead, we use fit models of different sizes and adjust the cut and fit when designing all types of underwear for women. Whether you’re looking for plus-size thongs or briefs, here is our guide to different types of underwear that will work for you.
Seamless Underwear: Briefs vs. Thongs
You may want to avoid underwear lines when wearing form-fitting clothing, regardless of your size or shape. In this quest you have two good options: seamless briefs or a thong.
Seamless briefs have no visible stitching, and thus no visible panty lines. At Uwila Warrior, we achieve this with laser cut edges, as opposed to traditional elastic or sewn edge leg openings. Leveraging these details, our hipster cut Happy Seams Briefs magically disappear under clothes and feel invisible, too. They’re available up to size 3X.
Thongs are another great option, as they are lightweight and always stay in place. For thongs XL and up, we make the leg gap larger and higher and increase the rise and front coverage. Because of this, the underwear lightly smooths and molds around your form, while leaving the back body naturally exposed. We make our VIP Thongs up to size 3X.
When you’re looking for feel-good underwear, full coverage has you back. We avoid compression and constrictive fits to make sure our full-coverage panties are actually comfy for plus-sized women. The No Brainer brief is Uwila Warrior’s MVP for sizing flexibility, in large part thanks to material. “The fabric is super stretchy and the cut is a mid-rise classic brief, which works well across a variety of bodies,” says Samantha Benassai, Uwila Warrior’s Product Development manager.
For the brief, we also ensure that you have enough coverage on the back body, so the underwear fits with fuller coverage and doesn’t sneak in between your cheeks during the day. Phew.
If you want a natural fiber plus-size pantie, our best selling 100% silk briefs are also a great option. They have seams on the side to better fit around your curves and are available up to size 3X. Silk is the ultimate moisture-wicking fabric, making these ideal for any occasion that demands underwear that stays in place and dries fast. (So pretty much every occasion.) They’ll also spare you visible panty lines and pair perfectly with our silk camis, which go up to size 3X.

At Uwila Warrior, all of our panties offer optimal coverage in both the front and back body, where plus size customers may hold additional volume or weight.
