Beautiful Lingerie & Nightwear for fuller figure women!

Hi, my name is Charlene and I am the founder of Risqué Department. At Risqué Department we believe that having a fuller figure should not limit you to a selection of basic, ill-fitting, and outdated lingerie. Our mission is to design and offer timeless, built-for-purpose, sexy lingerie, loungewear and nightwear for women with fuller figures.


Why do we exist? Because representation matters!  


The heart of what we do is to empower women with fuller figures and liberate them from the poor options they are presented with within the intimates industry. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a larger bust size than my peers and always felt the need to be modest in my selection of bras. I recall the feeling of being an invisible customer and would not dare to dream of finding beautiful lingerie in my size. I desperately longed to have more exciting options that catered to my size with style at the forefront.  I soon learned from speaking to many women alike old or young, that they shared the same concerns on a lack of choice in the market for fuller-figured women.


For many years we have had the likes of Victoria Secret or Agent Provocateur and many other bra havens for smaller cup ranges. My mission?  To carve out a space for fuller figured women who desire stylish intimate apparel that fits.

Our roots!

We have been on this journey of discovery, research and development over the last 2 years to bring this exciting product range to life.  We have now completed our initial capsule collection designs and have been working in partnership with I A Samples a reputable UK-based intimate apparel atelier that provides a unique service with meticulous attention to detail. We are proud of the British Heritage of our product and celebrate the opportunity to partner up with other SME's in the UK


Be a part of the change!

The next piece of the puzzle is to start production of our first collection and to create a website platform that is reflective of our brand to bring this exciting product to the market. 



What your investment will do

We have put design at the heart of what we do at RD. Our specialty is entirely on fuller figured women and bringing a range of design-led garments that are fit for function whilst also affording luxury, style and quality. Our team is dedicated to bringing this vision to life and with your investment, we will be able to start the production of the first collection. This will bring us that step closer to our dream of inspiring and liberating women of fuller figures and sizes all over the world with our lingerie and nightwear. 

We hope you will be a part of our mission to make the intimate apparel industry more inclusive!
