April wish list

Check out five of our must-haves that will lift your spirits and ensure you stay stylish at home.

Lemon-hued lingerie, colourful summer nightwear, home workout wear and work-from-home-acceptable loungewear. We have lots of bright rays to keep you looking and feeling your best while staying at home during these uncertain times.

1. Anything but mellow

Right now we need to inject a bit of summer happiness into all of our lives, and just as the sun reminds us it does actually still exist, the refreshing yellow rays of lingerie are following suit.

Cast your shaded eyes over to the Figleaves Isobella full cup underwired bra, in the new sorbet colour and available up to G cup size. It features an on-trend high apex design with double shoulder straps that adds style to summer tops.

Gossard are soaking up the sunshine yellow with their new shade available in both the Gossard Superboost lace padded plunge bra and Gossard Superboost lace deep v bralette, both available up to a G cup.

Add this on-trend hue to your sports bras with the new zesty Anita Maximum Support air control sports bra. It features foam cup design, breathable mesh and padded, flexible straps to mould to your shape and movement.

2. #FriendsofFigleaves

“When I bought this I’m not sure I realised how good their value for money would be. I’m living for the loungewear.” Aren’t we all @honestgeorgiegirl.

And so is @deedee_louise who is isolating in our Supersoft hooded cardigan, saying “Hair tied, sweatpants, chilling with no makeup on – this will be my quarantine vibe for the foreseeable.” We hear you.

Loungewear is exactly what we all need in our lives right now. It’s not pyjamas so you can definitely claim you got dressed today, and yet so comfortable for chilling around the house while we must all do our bit and stay at home.

Browse all our stylish loungewear for when you want to get dressed, but not ‘dressed, dressed’. And check out our #FigFamily top tips for working from home and isolation days.

3. Home workout motivation

Panache Sports moulded underwired bra

The gyms might be shut, but all hail the home workout and the abundance of online training currently on offer. The nation’s children are gripped by Joe Wicks morning PE sessions at 9am, and we are also loving Kayla Itsines’ online programmes.

And to ensure you’re suitably motivated in your lounge or back garden, turn to the new pink colour of the award-winning Panache Sports moulded underwired bra.

The winner of our Workout Wonder category in the Customer Choice Awards, this encapsulation bra gives shape and comfort without compressing you in too much. It has flexi wire, seam free cups and cushioned straps to ensure comfort while working out, all while giving up to 83 per cent reduced bounce.

Plus, we currently have 30 per cent off our activewear to join the nation in their bid to keep fit from home.

4. Summer dreamin’

Cyberjammies Amber Pink floral top and pant set

Cyberjammies are rocking their hot new spring/summer looks just in time for us to be spending copious amounts of time at home. Their colourful hues and bold designs are a breath of fresh air in a nightwear drawer that needs a seasonal revamp.

Whether you prefer short sets such as the Olivia Blue floral combo with a cami style top, or the Alicia Paint Brush duo with a shirt top, there’s plenty of choice. Or for more coverage, set your sleeping style stakes high with the Amber Pink floral top and pant set.

Check out their full new collection also including wraps and chemises.

5. Bravado is back

Bravado Body Silk seamless nursing bra

This in-demand bra was worn by our very own nursing bra buyer Natalie Boothby while she was nursing. She says, “This was the only bra I wore during my pregnancy. It’s so comfortable and that’s what you need, especially when you get bigger. The fabric is so soft you hardly feel like it’s on. They supply clips so you can turn it into a maternity bra.”

Available up to XXL, it features a seamless design to remain invisible under clothing, while the four-way stretch fabric alters to fit your ever changing shape. The cups include removable moulded inserts for those who wish to add more shape.
