Style Me Curvy Meets: Figleaves

This post is in collabouration with 

Some of you might have seen a sneak peek on my Insta stories about this collabouration! I have wanted to create a lingerie post for so long with something that covered everyday essentials to the more fun and feminine styles. When it comes to lingerie I find that for a specific size or cup range it can be wonderful but if you are past a size 16 or perhaps your bra size extends past a size 36D both in cup or back size, then you are left with often "underwear basics". When Figleaves approached me about this post it was something I instantly knew would be helpful for so many women who email me with hundreds of underwear related questions.  

The company is an online retailer that hosts a broad selection of lingerie brands from Panache to Freya to Wonderbra and many more. They have a specific DD-K cup section but most specifically they have their own Figleaves range as well as Figleaves Curve which you will see later on in this post includes sizes 36C-48D and in briefs sizes 12-26. Their most recent addition to their brand which launches this week includes their new Smoothing bra which is revamping the everyday bra to really be all about comfort. I had the pleasure to test it out for the blog ( as seen in this post both black and beige). It gives a seamless effect under clothing and because it's so soft and breathable you don't have that constant awareness that your are in fact wearing a bra throughout the day.  It comes in three different styles, a plunge option which I'm wearing today, a multiway balconette style and a fuller coverage sweetheart option - all in three shades. They all have beautiful soft brushed microfibre, so everything sits flat on the skin  ( it won't pinch or dig in/ bulge etc) and the wide back wings also help to keep everything seamless from all angles. The straps have a soft elastine meaning they wont irritate the shoulder area ( if you are fuller busted especially you'll be happy to here that!) and at the back you'll find cushioned hook and eyes ( a big factor for me!). The price range is £26 and sizing for this line runs from 32A-38G cup. 

I could go on about everything for days but I've put a broad selection of Spring Summer inspired pieces below. I've picked various styles along with the smoothing bras which I thought would suit a wide variety of tastebuds. There is everything from subtle shades to colourful brights and tummy control wear to work for every kind of clothing. 

The Figleaves Juliette T-Shirt Bra 

The Juliette range has a selection of seven different colours. For today I opted for a sorbet mint shade for summer. You can find it in sizes 30B-38GG  here at £26 and the shorts or thong in sizes 8-18 here

The Lepel padded push up bra is available in a nine different colours and ranges in sizes 30B -38G. The lace mixed with plunged effect. Priced at £26 here and shorts here
