Fabulous Figleaves for bigger boobs

When signing up for our Newsletter Ali M asked for help to find two new bras and a bikini for her holiday. ‘Any tips or good finds for those of us with bigger boobs would be great’ she said. We’ve tracked down three bras to choose from and a tankini and all Ali or any of our followers has to do is click onto www.figleaves.com to find fabulous lingerie and swimwear.

This Animal Print bra from Gossard goes up to a G cup and is underwired to give extra support. The straps are slender so perfect for summer dresses and the matching pants make a good holiday set. (Currently reduced in the sale at www.figleaves.com)

This daisy embroidered non padded balconette also goes up to a G cup. From the Just Peachy range by figleaves.com It’s absolutely fresh and lovely.
