How I Started to Feel Pretty Again #LiveLoveLingerie #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Figleaves ~ I love the Lingerie I received and I will be getting my 'feminine' on in the future with more of their lovely products

Figleaves Lingerie Attention to Detail #LiveLoveLingerie #adFeeling pretty ~ that was always something that was important to me until recently.  I seem to have been in a funk/rut lately.  I have been feeling dumpy to say the least.  Life became complicated...way more complicated than I ever could imagine a few years ago and letting 'me and me-time' out of the equation became the first thing I sacrificed.  It seemed selfish to put myself anywhere on my to-do list when there were so many other things needing attention.  I gained weight and my lingerie of choice was a package of cotton spandex underwear from a local discount store and bras...well, since I seemed to always have someone with me bra shopping was guessing a size, pulling a practical bra off the hook at the same chain store where I got my underwear and throwing it in the cart...hiding it from the kids until I got to the check out and then tossing it on the conveyor belt while I distracted their attention with candy (they're boys...candy or beef jerky is always a good distraction).

When I was presented with this opportunity (insert squeals of girlie delight) to choose some lingerie from Figleaves I was ecstatic.  Their selection is BEAUTIFUL with so much attention to detail that the minute I placed my order I felt prettier.  I wasn't sure what size bra to choose but they have an online fitting room with a bra size calculator that made it easy to pick just the right size.

When my order arrived and I tried the bra on it fit perfectly ~ woot!  No more gapping on the sides or hanging out (if you've ever had that happen you know how annoying it is ~ you're afraid to move too much out in public for fear something's going to spill out and then you have to figure out how to push everything back into place...please tell me it's not just me this happens to!).  They offer bra sizes ranging from A to K cups (not the coffee but actual bra size) so it's easy to find just the right fit.  


Figleaves isn't limited to lingerie ~ they also have swimwear, sleepwear and more and they carry over 200 different brands and have something to fit EVERY budget.  I found that the cost of my new bra was comparable to what I paid at the discount store for my ill-fitting unattractive bras (I think I may make some slingshots with them now that I know I don't have to sacrifice pretty anymore!).

So how are you feeling....are you a fellow frumpster who needs a boost with some pretty lingerie or are you a lingerie lover who just wants to order some new frillies to feel pretty for the spring and summer? I would love to hear what your thoughts are ~ I bared my soul so now you know all about my PAST lingerie shopping and where I'll be shopping in the future.

  1. Isn't it amazing when you find out you've been wearing the wrong size all of these years?? And you thought that it was just YOU that spilled out of everything and there was nothing to be done about it?

    Finding the right size and right bra has made an incredible difference in my life too - I don't feel any more that I look like a hootchie mama with too much cleavage anymore. I actually feel like a grown up!

    Pretty lingerie MB!

      Aunt Bee you always make me smile and you've never looked like a hootchie mama to are a hottie, though! 😉 hugs hugs hugs

    Those are so pretty. It sounds like they are comfortable too. I've had a problem with pretty underwear being uncomfortable/itchy. But it sounds like theirs aren't. Girl I was wearing white granny panties for years, then my young adult daughters decided I needed a change so they bought me new underwear. You should have seen the look on my husbands face when I came to bed with neon green glow in the dark panties on. LOL! Needless to say, they are not pretty and romantic. I will definitely have to check out their website! Thanks so much for always inspiring me!

      Oh, Julia!!!! You are so funny. Girls do try to help their mom's ~ boys...the last thing they want to think about is me being a girl at all so I don't think I'll be sporting any neon green panties any time soon! You'll love Figleaves ~ they have so many pretty items available. Thanks for making me laugh.

    Beautifully written, MB! I love the color and design of the pieces you showcased. As a very busty gal, I was really excited to see that Figleaves carries the full range of sizes. Usually the cute stuff is limited to A-D sizes. Off to take a look....

      Thanks so much, Jenn! I'm like you ~ busty ~ and it is so hard to find pretty bras once you get past a certain size but the one I ordered fits perfectly and is gorgeous to look at.

  4. Steph @ The Silly Pearl says:

    SO pretty, Mary Beth! The complete opposite of frump-a-dump, more like bow chicka wowow (but on the tasteful side!). Thanks for sharing!

      Your comment made me giggle, Steph, that's exactly what I said when I opened the package. 😉
