Are you making plans for a summer vacation? If so, you’re probably thinking about what you’ll need to pack. And let’s face it, it’s always fun to buy a few new things to wear on holiday. It ups the anticipation factor, even if it’s just a cute pair of sunglasses or colorful flip-flops.

Maybe you haven’t shopped for new lingerie or swimwear in over a year. If that’s the case, what you currently own is likely tired, out-of-date, or too worn anyway. Your upcoming summer vacation may be the ideal time to shop for bras and swimwear you’ll need and love wearing. That makes it a win-win, both for your trip and your everyday life.

Today’s post highlights a variety of styles in a range of sizes. The even better news is that you can find all the products listed at Figleaves, which is having a 40% off sale on both their US and UK websites, starting today. Happy shopping!

Bra Sets

Even if you’re not heading to warmer weather, it’s always good to stock up on casual and comfy bralettes, neutrals, or t-shirt bras. Make sure you look for some flexibility, which is why a strapless or convertible style is always a good choice. And don’t forget to take along a great sports bras. You may want to go for a hike, run, or take a yoga class. Finally, don’t forget to store your bras correctly, which means knowing the best way to pack them in your suitcase. You’ll way to bring some easy to use no-rinse travel wash so that your intimates stay fresh while you’re away from home.

Nightwear

Here’s where you can go either sexy or sporty, depending on who you’re rooming with on your trip. Those of us with fuller busts (or post-pregnancy boobs) will appreciate brands that provide a bit more support. But, never fear, there are loads of options in this category. You’ll find short and long PJs, plain or frilly chemises, or more sexy numbers.

Swimwear & Coverups

Last, but not least, is swimwear. A new suit can be the hardest to shop for when it comes to finding what looks great for your body and breast shape. But it’s also the one item that we want to have right before heading to our resort or beach vacation destination. Who wants to take along an old worn and dated swimsuit? Plus, the newest styles often sell out quickly, especially for those of us needing larger cup sizes. You can pick from bikinis, tankinis, and also one-piece suits with tummy control. Make sure you’re happy with the cut of the bottoms, as today’s swim fashions offer skimpy bottoms and higher-cut briefs. If you don’t already have one, a cute cover-up, romper or jumpsuit makes it easier to head straight to lunch or cocktails after a swim or lounge at the pool.
