feeling like a hot mama again {Figleaves}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Figleaves.

At some point I went from caring about matching bra and panties to… just grab whatever is clean.  I’m pretty sure it happened sometime after my second child was born, when exhaustion ruled and I was a complete zombie.  But, look, he’s 14 months now.  No excuses.  There are several reasons to wear pretty lingerie, many revolving around a healthy marriage, but most importantly, moms deserve to feel pretty and it starts with our lingerie.

It took me a really long time to find the right bra fit… like 15 years.  To make matters worse, your boobs change over the years when you are having children.  I think after my first they were smaller, then after my second they were bigger… I mean how can a gal keep up?  Recently, I figured out my current true size and that was kinda groundbreaking. Now I have the right fit, just need the right bras.

Figleaves offers more than 200 different brands, in all kinds of styles to fit all kinds of needs in all kinds of budgets. Not every line carries my size, which is a smallish band with a largish cup size.  When browsing through Figleaves I was super impressed with the variety of bras: limited edition, exclusive designer, basic essentials and flirty French lingerie.  I came across a brand called Curvy Kate and a ding, ding, ding went off in my head.  Oh Kate, where have you been all my life!?

I chose the Portia Balconette Bra in lime/rose because I just couldn’t resist the sheer sexiness of it (a bit of a pun there).  Also, my husband’s favorite color is green and he’ll be the only other person enjoying my selection.  I felt fairly confident that Curvy Kate, who specializes in cup sizes D-K, could handle my boobs, and I was right!

When the bra and panties set arrived, I ran to the bedroom with much anticipation.  And you know what?  They fit PERFECTLY.  In fact, I have already ordered more bras (and swimwear) from Curvy Kate at  What is it about finding that perfect fit that makes us so happy?  Everything we wear looks better with a well-fitting bra, it’s true, but also, don’t you just feel better in your skin?  So supported, so sexy.  I love the hot pink details that really set off the green, a gorgeous bra and feels so wonderful against my skin.

The Portia Shorts are sheer, sexy but very comfortable.  Matching up perfectly with the bra, this dynamic duo is great under clothes or without!

    I have the hardest time finding a bra that fits that’s pretty. I’m big on top and typically things are plain and boring, if I can find something in my size at all.

    I love that set! I agree – sometimes you gotta just grab what is clean but it is always nice to have a matching set to wear every once in a while. Thanks for the coupon code, I will be checking it out.

    These are nice. Truly, not all brands have all the sizes a woman could have in her life, there are people who have small band sizes and big cups, like you and me, and others have the opposite. It’s kinda troublesome when you’re gonna find matching bras and panties when your sizes are hard to find. You just have to improvise at times.
