I have a confession to make. You know those packs of cotton panties that you can buy at the store? Well, those are pretty much the only panties I own. I know, I know! I am way too young to have a drawer full of boring old panties, but I loathe shopping for lingerie in stores! I am not really shy, but there's just something humiliating about standing in the middle of a store in front of a bunch of total strangers with panties and bras in your hands...especially when you have to hold them up to yourself to try and determine if they will fit you! Now that I have found out about figleaves.com, I am putting my 6-pack-of-bikini-briefs days behind me!
"What's so wrong with boring, comfortable cotton panties?" you say? "But they're so comfortable!" you say?
No, folks. Just no.
Chris and I have been married for almost 13 years now, and after you've spent that much time with the same person, things can get a little dull. It takes work to keep that fire alive, and how am I supposed to look sexy when I come trotting out in underwear so boring that even I yawn when I put them on?
It's time I empty out my underwear drawer and start replacing my boring stuff with pretty new lingerie from figleaves.com! They offer everything from bras and panties to more sexy lingerie, as well as swimwear and sleepwear too!
Now, my biggest shopping dilemna when it comes to lingerie is that I hate trying to pick things out in public - and forget trying stuff on, that's just gross. figleaves.com makes it so easy to shop online for lingerie, because you are able to sort through items by color, style and size. Instead of having to hold bras and panties up to your body while people stare at you in a store, you can use an online fitting room and bra size calculators on the figleaves website to help you figure out the proper size for you!
One of the best things about figleaves.com is that they have a huge selection! With bra sizes ranging from A-K, they have something for everyone. No more rummaging through the racks for an hour, only to find that they don't carry your size. Hurray!
One of my biggest issues with my current selection of lingerie is that nothing really matches. Since figleaves has over 200 different brands, it's easy to find matching sets for all different styles. That big selection also means that there's something for every style and budget – including limited edition lingerie by exclusive designers, fancy French lingerie, as well as your basics.
I received the Chantelle Rive Gauche bra and thong from figleaves as part of this blogging campaign, and I was thrilled when it arrived! It's so pretty and dainty...and really sexy while still being sophisticated and classy. I was happy to find that both the bra and panties fit perfectly, too - I was a bit nervous about that but their sizing chart was spot on. My Chantelle Rive Gauche set was lacy and sheer, yet still provided perfect coverage under a thin tank top.
I would show you what it looks like on...but that would be a little weird! Instead, I will show you how cute the little straps look when they peek out from my tank top!

I only buy my bras and panties in matching sets, so I always match. Although every single undergarment that I own is black, so I suppose matching would never really be an issue.
I only wear the granny pannies during that time of the month lol I try to keep it spicy with my underwear now only if I can get my bras to match then I would be good to go
yea, i have a hard time with matching sets. i have an over abundance of boobs and end up with plain boring restraining bras LOL!
I will never be a granny panty type girl! I like buying matching sets but I also buy solids that can be mixed and matched with patterned panties or bras. Figleaves looks like they have really beautiful bras, panties, and lingerie. I am going to have to check them out!
Ahh, I am all for pretty lingerie. The five packs of knickers have their place (time of the month and doctor's appointments) but I have no embarrassment buying underwear in a store. There is no greater thrill for me than walking into a store and grabbing everything I like in full view of everyone. My granny used to say "if your knickers are clean, they're fit to be seen." I do love Figleaves! Excellent post.
I must admit, I'm a grannie panty wearer. I like to be comfortable. The only sexy thing I buy are my bras. But I know I really need to start spicing it up.
I'm not sure I could go granny-free ALL the time, but I could certainly stand to go granny-free more. However, during the one week of the month...bring on granny and a big comfy bed.
bring on the granny panties and a big comfy bed is what I meant to type. I sure don't want that misinterpreted. lol
I love to splurge on a cute matching set every now and then. I have one from Figleaves and love their selection!
Ok your comment really made me laugh...
That was an awesome giggle for the morning!
I have a combination of the boring pre-packaged panties and the "cuter" ones in my drawer. It seems like the boring ones get the most use though!
those straps look amazing! lol I use granny panties too.
These are really cute. I used to match but now I just go for whatever's clean. I never really buy bras online but this seems like a great selection.
I'm a granny panties all the way girl. A nice bra, yes, but a thong? I just.can't.do.it.

Haha!!! I only own granny panties when I am pregs, otherwise heck no! But, I too HATE going out and buying panties , HATE it. I feel like everyone is starring at me seeing which ones I will choose, ugh. So, I always order online. I will have to check out this site!
Haha! But it's so comfy! Seriously after I had my twins I had to wear granny panties for a loooong time! They have some pretty stuff on this site!
NO thongs for me - but not really granny panties either...I am the middle of the road girl! Comfortable and sexy! I love the mint green !!
That was the funniest comment I have read in forever! lol
This sounds like the perfect solution for me, I hate shopping for personal items in stores too. Don't even get me started on the day I went in to get fitted for a bra after having the surrogate baby.

I'm always looking for sexy but comfy under garments. I think I would like the Figleaves line; I'll to have check them out!
Thanks for introducing me to figleaves.com. They have some really pretty options to wear vs the granny panties! Thanks for sharing!
OK now that made me snort!
Sign me up for the list of people that is also guilty of granny pantyitis. I only spiced things up once and that was by accident. Wound up with what sure did feel like dental floss to me. And don't be silly, nothing matches.
I still love my grannie panties. They are comfortable and I will still wear them. lol!!
I agree. Granny panties have got to go! I just don't even feel pretty in them.
Oh Jennifer you are so cute!! Love this post. Mine might not be lacy, but their aren't granny panties.. LOL
This post made me laugh! But I do agree, its so weird to buy lingerie in a store! What a handy website to know about!
I never heard of the company before but will have to check it out. Your bra (or the straps at least) looks so cute. I usually buy from Victoria's Secret but it's always good to learn something new.
No granny panties here! Haha Great post and I love the bright blue color! I will check out their selection for sure.
I have never heard of figleaves but I can say that I have never owned a pair of granny panties. My panties are made with very little material 😉
I agree! I believe in cute pj's and underwear. Even if no one will see them - just knowing that I have them makes me feel very feminine!
Looks like they have some pretty cute stuff! I also hate shopping for underware in public! #1 everyone's touched it and #2 they don't always have a great selection!
I think it's fun to shop for lingerie. It's nice to have a drawer full of pretties to choose when you want. 🙂
I am totally guilty of owning granny panties. They're just so comfy, but these look great too.
They have some super cute stuff. I love the color of the bra you picked.
I'm trying to convince myself that there is such a thing as cute granny panties. I look for comfort first.
I liked the pictures so I took a quick peek at the website and LOVE. They have some really cute thing.
I'd never heard of fig leaves, but it looks neat. My great grandmother (yes, my then 86-year old great grandmother), always told me to wear gorgeous, traffic stopping underwear, because you never know when you might be in an accident and have a handsome doctor. No kidding. So, fast forward 20 years to my emergency C-section 18 months ago, and we had an, ummmm, shall we say, interesting moment over my bra.
I've always been too big to enjoy regular lingerie. Now that I'm losing weight I can't wait to see what lingerie has in store for me. I love that figleaves has a section devoted to DD+ women.
I've never heard of figleaves.com, but I'll be checking them out. I'm just wearing nursing bras right now, but I could definitely use some new underwear. And matching sets would be awesome once I'm out of nursing bras.
I have worn a pair or two of granny panties. They are quite comfy! Wearing a more comfortable brief makes more sense for me now.
I agree completely - packaged undies might as well be granny panties! They are boring and rough and not something we should be comfortable wearing.
Now if only I could buy that body to go with them! Baahahaha!
I reserve granny panties for that time of the month, all other times I have to wear a thong or g-string. Just saying. I am not sure why, just been my habit since the teen years. I love this store though, it looks like it would open me up to other under garment ideas!
I am guilty of sporting cotton granny panties far too often but also have my sexier pairs for an intimate time. I definitely need to look into this site for some cute sleepwear.
Right choice baby
