I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Figleaves.com. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.I hate shopping for swimsuits with a passion. Sometimes it feels like there is absolutely nothing in between skimpy bikinis and swimsuits with layers and layers of fabric. I’ve worn both in the past, and while they both have their pluses they are just not right for me right now.
With small kids that I’m bending over to help, lifting, and swimming with, I need something I don’t have to mess with, tug at, or worry is showing too much. And, if it could also be stylish, that would be awesome, too.
Introducing Figleaves, a company that doesn’t sell one-size-fits-all swimwear but instead understands that swimwear should fit just as well as undergarments. Because of this, Figleaves.com doesn’t simply offer S-M-L sizing, but also offers bra-sized swim separates to ensure a perfect fit for all body types. Cup sizes range from AA-GG, and styles vary from classic or slimming one-piece swimsuits, to fashion-forward or enhancing bikinis and tankinis. This means that Figleaves.com truly has something for every body, and they even have an awesome fit guide to help you find the perfect suit to flatter.
Figleaves.com doesn’t just have swimwear, they also offer lingerie, apparel, sleepwear and more that includes over 200 designers such as Vix and Aguaclara, to private labels and exclusive items from brands like Midnight Grace, Just Peachy, and the eponymous Figleaves label.
Immediately upon looking through their catalog, I knew which swimsuit I needed to be mine. With its vintage cut and retro dots, it couldn’t have been more “me”. The Sophina by Figleaves.com Icon Lattice Back Shaping Swimsuit is a classic black suit, but it also has some really awesome details to make it stand out this summer.
With sheer spot mesh along the top of the suit and lattice detailing at the back, it still offers good coverage and support without looking like a “mom suit”. It may just be me, but I’m sick of the extra layers and shirring that many companies add to their suits in hopes of camouflaging problem areas as those tend to highlight them rather than conceal. I love that the Sophina suit has a very minimalist design without yards of fabric, so it won’t weigh me down poolside or add extra inches.
I couldn’t wait to wear my Figleaves suit so I was thrilled when we ended up going on an impromptu beach vacation this week and I was able to try it out at the pool and lake during the weekend. It was really comfortable to wear swimming and under dresses all day long and, thanks to their sizing guide that helped me find the right fit for me, it really couldn’t have fit me better.
Normally I wear a dress up until the point I actually jump in the water, but this trip I didn’t mind walking around in just a swimsuit. Even though I was wrangling four kids at the pool and being tagged by water rockets left and right, at least I could be comfortable and stylish while I did so.
If you’re struggling to find the perfect swimsuit this year, I would highly recommend checking out Figleaves.com. Their sizing and fit guide can help you find the perfect suit for your body and help you order the correct size just like you do with bras and undergarments so you won’t be tugging, rearranging, and adjusting all day long. Be sure to check out their entire selection of swimsuits available this season!
