Let’s talk bras, you may know they’re one of my favourite things to talk about here! So who’s with me in that the past few weeks all you’ve worn is either sports bras, bralettes or no bras at all? Well I’ve been doing the exact same. PJ day everyday? No shame here! Apart from a few day’s, where I’ve got dressed, washed my hair, got a bit glam, tried to feel a little more like a normal day, if that makes sense?
So when Wingfield PR got in touch and asked if I’d like to receive a couple of pieces from Figleaves, I couldn’t resist, you all know how much I love underwear right? And trying a new brand, I was excited to say the least. I’ve bought previously from Figleaves but I’ve never actually tried their own brand lingerie, and I’m so glad I did. So what did I think?
Today I’m going to be talking about the Figleaves Juliette lace, non-padded underwired bra and the matching Brazilian brief. Firstly it was the gorgeous navy colour that caught my eye, I’m a massive fan of navy, it just so happened to be part of the colour scheme for my wedding day, all the dresses, the suits, maybe that’s why I love it so much? Anyway this set does not only come in one or two colour ways, nope it’s available it nine different colour-ways! So what ever you’re after to add a pop of colour to your underwear drawer Juliette is for you. And if you’re like me and once you find a set you love the fit of, you can’t resist but have every colour!
This particular Juliette bra I opted for, is the lace, non-padded underwired bra. I love the plunge and the stretch lace is so comfy. I’m usually between a size 36GG and 36H so as this bra is non-padded I went for the size 36GG. This bra currently runs from a size 30D to a 38GG. Hopefully Figleaves in the future will expand this as it’s such a great bra and looks so lovely on any bust. So what did I think of the fit? It was actually perfect! After scooping and swooping there was no bulging, no falling out and no gaping. It was really comfortable and definitely a bra for everyday, as well as wearing underneath a plunge neckline dress (for when we can get back to date nights and girls nights!) But for now under your pyjamas, or working from home clothes or just lounging around in nothing else, it’s perfect!
Next up let’s talk pants! I love a Brazilian brief, for day to day I love to be comfortable, who doesn’t? But I also like to be a little bit ‘cheeky’ if you get me? And these Brazilian lace briefs are gorgeous. Again in the matching navy colour and also a great fit. I received mine in a size 18, and usually I like to size up to a 20 in briefs, but the fit of these is so good. Not too tight and just again, really comfortable. These briefs are available in a size 8-18, again this is something I hope Figleaves will look into expanding in the future. And if Brazilian isn’t quite your style these are also available in a thong option and a short option, so depending on how much coverage you’d like there’s an option for either! And they’re also available in every colour that the Juliette bra is, so you can have a matching set whichever colour is your favourite!
The overall fit and quality of Figleaves own brand lingerie I’ve found to be really great, and honestly I’m just surprised I haven’t tried them before! They are also a brand which I’d say are actually great value for money. Stunning sets that won’t break the bank! So if you’re looking to treat yourself during this different time in life, then I’d highly recommend checking Figleaves out. And I wouldn’t be doing my role here properly as a bargain hunter, if I didn’t tell you Figleaves also have an amazing up to 70% off sale on right now! I know 70% off?!? I’ve already got my eyes on some new pyjamas I’ve been lusting over!
