First of all, let’s look at the plus size lingerie dropship niche to get a feel for exactly how lucrative it is.
Here are some interesting tidbits from PRWeb:
“The Lingerie Stores industry has benefited from the slow decline in the unemployment rate, which has boosted per capita disposable income, allowing consumers to increasingly purchase higher-end lingerie items. Moreover, plus-size intimate apparel has been another growth segment for the industry.
Over the next five years, conditions are set to improve for the Lingerie Stores industry. From 2012 to 2017, industry revenue is forecast to rise, Moldvay says. During this period, the unemployment rate is expected to slowly trend down, reaching 6.1% by 2017. With more favorable employment trends, per capita disposable income is expected to rise at an average annual rate of 2.3%, allowing consumers to increasingly splurge on higher-end lingerie items. The industry will, however, face increasing external competition from discount retailers, mass merchandisers and e-commerce retailers that are expected to continue expanding their lingerie lines.”

Here are some tips to help you dropship plus size lingerie successfully:
- First, determine what types of plus size lingerie products you want to dropship. There are scads of items available---everything from garter belts to bras to nightgowns and robes---so you may want to drill down within this broad niche to focus on a narrower sub-niche. On the other hand, you may not. If you happen to be one of those people who can’t stand the idea of leaving money on the table by not having a little something for everybody, then by all means go ahead and sell an assortment of plus size lingerie products.
- Be sure to find a wholesale product source with high quality plus size lingerie. Your online reputation will hinge on the quality of the products you dropship, so it is imperative to make sure they are good. You should actually order a sample of each piece you plan to sell, just to see for yourself whether it is well made or not.
- While you are shopping around for a dropship product source, be extra careful to deal with a reputable business with a proven track record, preferably a member in good standing of the Better Business Bureau. Inquire about their business practices. For instance, does they company send out Low Inventory notices so that you don’t oversell? Do they ship promptly with the packaging discreet and secure? These things are vitally important to the success or failure of your home dropship business selling plus size lingerie.
- Last bit certainly not least, be sure to get wholesale pricing from your dropship product supplier. If you don’t, there is no way you can possibly resell your plus size lingerie for enough money to garner a goodly profit for yourself. If you pay retail prices to your supplier, only one party in this arrangement will be making any money and it won’t be you.
