Spring refresh

19.02.2018

Pretty pastels, floral prints, playful spots and feminine lace; that sums up our most sought-after collection of new spring lingerie to give your underwear drawer a seasonal refresh.

Springtime brings new blooms, lighter evenings and therapeutic decluttering sessions around the house. It’s also the perfect time to go through your lingerie drawer and throw out any tired, worn-out items, and update it with bright, perfectly-fitting new pieces.

Ice-cream pastels of pinks, yellows, lilacs, blues and greens were at the fore on the spring/summer 2018 catwalks, seen on the likes of Celine, Preen and Dries Van Noten. And here at Figleaves we have some beautiful new sets in these on-trend shades, which you simply won’t be able to resist...

You are my sunshine

Yellow is a notoriously spring colour; think sunshine, daffodils and baby chicks. Plus, it’s a major hue for this spring/summer, seen on the runways of Calvin Klein.

So this playful spotty yellow Curvy Kate Princess balcony bra is the perfect addition to your collection this season. With cute floral lace trim on both the bra and briefs, along with a bow, it’s pretty, feminine and the underwired cups give support.

This happy hue is also the main feature on the Aubade Bahia underwired balconette bra. With pink and green also included in the print, broderie anglaise detailing and the addition of a criss-cross tie mid bust, this really will brighten up your lingerie collection and your mood.

Blooming beautiful

As soon as we see the green flower shoots, we breathe a sigh of relief that spring is just around the corner.

And now you can bring some spring blooms into your lingerie drawer with the floral Fantasie Charlotte underwire side support bra. Featuring soft pink and lilac petals, trimmed with beautiful lace on both the bra cups and sides of briefs, this set is overtly ladylike.

The new Figleaves Chelsea Flowers underwired bra also features pink flowers, but comes complete with tweeting birds perched on their branch. Could you actually get any sweeter? Again, trimmed with lace and adorned with pink bows, it’s an exquisitely feminine set.

And given vintage florals were seen on the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, you’ll be bang on trend too.

Lady in lace

Lace is used aplenty in lingerie due to its delicate appearance and multitude of patterns available. Plus, it makes for a timeless classic, as lace isn’t going anywhere on the trend front.

The Freya Fancies underwired plunge bra is one of our biggest sellers, so women everywhere have a spring in their step when they discover this delightful new pink shade, Orchid. The much-loved classic bra offers a light look, but still with the full support and comfort you’d expect.

Meanwhile the Gossard Superboost lace deep V bralette in Apricot is a striking set. Aside from this unique and unusual shade, the intricacy of the lace sets it apart. The vintage style is enhanced with padded cups, front hook and eye fastening and racer back.

Stitch in time

As with lace, embroidery on lingerie is always popular and here to stay. Plus it allows for feminine touches and beautiful detailing.

The duck egg blue Dita Von Teese Dahlia balconette bra is keeping on the pastel theme, not to mention the huge strap detailing trend. This sexy and modern underwired and padded bra with flesh-coloured underlay and cute velvet bows, allows your spring lingerie wardrobe to be fresh yet seductive.

The cream base of the Figleaves Adora underwired bra contrasts beautifully against the black floral embroidery to create an eye-catching lingerie set. With slim adjustable shoulder straps and elegant bow detailing, it’s a wonderful all-occasions set.
