Top Student Picks at Figleaves
Figleaves was the first ever lingerie-focused online retailer and today thrives as a specialist lingerie website with an ever-growing base of fans.
Rather than a standard ‘browse-buy’ retailer, Figleaves believes in the power of well-fitting lingerie to help improve posture and health and better streamline a body or outfit’s silhouette – and so rather than the standard 32-38 A-D cup, offers over 200 size options! There’s truly something for every shape and size of woman.
We’ve been doing our research to find the best student picks and remember if you want to know about student discounts then head over to our student discount guide.
Top Student Buy: Vintage Palm Underwired Twist Bandeau Swimsuit – £35.00
The perfect swimsuit for a curvy lady, the Vintage Palm Bandeau Swimsuit is available in cup sizes D-FF and flattering against all silhouettes.
Padded and underwired to give curves in all the right places, the design of this swimsuit echoes 1950s British seaside vibes.
The bandeau neckline and ruched front flattens the stomach and accentuates the bust for a really feminine look. This swimsuit is the perfect one-piece for swimming or just lazing around the pool… or if you go to university somewhere really exotic, dancing at a pool party!
Top Student Buy: Panache Sports Moulded Underwired Bra – £26.50
An award-winning piece, this Panache Sports Moulded Bra is about as scientific as you’ll get for a piece of gym-wear!
Constructed specifically to protect your assets from high-impact activity, separate cup encapsulation helps reduce any ‘bounce’ – in tests, by up to 83%!
The cups are underwired, but softly so, seamless for added comfort, and the wide straps add extra cushioning. Despite all the extra protection, the outer layer is breathable to keep you cool and dry, so you won’t be overheating even with the most intense of workouts.
The Sports Moulded Bra is available in a classic or racer back style and fits cup sizes B through to H. It does need to be hand washed, but that can be easily managed: just take it into the shower with you post-gym, and the job’s done!
Top Student Buy: Camelia Soft Touch Long Robe – £45.00
A Figleaves own-brand robe, the Camelia long robe is a touch of elegance and luxury despite not being at a premium price point.
Made from premium viscose, the robe is super soft to touch and its length covers up most of your sins nicely.
The elegant silky waist tie hides your blushes and accentuates your waist to give a flattering shape even when you’re just in your ‘jamas. Wear around the house over your trackies, after a bath or shower to dry off or in the changing rooms after the gym or a work-out. There’s something luxurious about wearing a robe around, but they make for a nice cover-up and comfy garm, so this sub-£50 spend is well worth it!
