Plus size briefs

Sans Complexe makes your life easier with several styles of briefs to flatter your curves, whatever your body shape or mood. Am I wearing the right design for the right occasion? Medium brief, highwaist brief, thong, tanga brief or shorties?! Here are some tips to help you choose your lingerie so you look fabulous whatever the occasion.

Medium briefs

Medium briefs have a higher waist and provide more coverage than classic briefs. They extend up to the base of the navel and sculpt your figure. They can be worn under floaty dresses and skirts. Undoubtedly one of the most comfortable pieces of lingerie.


The classic briefs are designed for comfort and well-being! Neither too high nor too low, they covers the buttocks and shapes the thighs to provide you with the ultimate in comfort. Ideal for everyday wear.


In vogue and really trendy, shorties and slightly wider than briefs at the hips. They cover the buttocks whilst showing off their rounded shape for a naturally sensual effect. The bandeau effect showcases your curves and flatters fuller figures. They are available in printed knit fabric and lace. They can easily be worn with low waist trousers.

Tanga briefs

Striking the perfect balance between briefs and a thong, tanga briefs show off the rounded curve of your bottom and suit all body shapes. They can be worn under jeans and show zero VPL under your clothes. Ideal for women who don't feel comfortable in a thong.

Control briefs

The full-fitting shape of control briefs gently hugs your curves. Perfect for smoothing out any little imperfections, they flatter curvier figures and create a very trendy retro style.

Panty modeling

Falling into the bodysculpting lingerie category, the panty modeling is a firm favourite as it provides excellent support at the waist, back, hips and thighs. It hugs and smooths your curves for a fabulous figure whilst allowing the skin to breathe.


An unbeatable way to showcase your femininity with its sexy, glamorous look, the thong is ideal for wearing under jeans. It is invisible under even the most figure-hugging clothes, and shows off your curvy shape to its best advantage.
