Didn't fit

A nice, supportive bra that gives a great shape and makes me look smaller it’s comfortable and I like the fabric. Being only 1.63m that doesn't give me much space under my arms and between my huge breast. So I like the wires size.
I'm usually a 34-36 and bought 38. And the L cup is almost like KK cup from Panache. It’s my first Bravissimo and I must say it does run smaller than other brands, but it's a pretty good shape and the wires are comfortable.
Unfortunately like very often the cup size is too small for me. (Tight but wearable)
A very good bra but now to be really satisfied I wait larger cup size from Bravissimo Brand.

  • Annie- I'm curious since the 38L is still too small in the cup for you, have you considered trying the Alana in a 40L or the Harmony or Melody in 40KK and altering the band? Bravissimo send me a 40K by accident and it made me think of this.

  • Hello Manchan,

    In fact I do that very often with Panache, Fantasie, Freya, Goddess and Elila bras. But I can’t speak about that on Bradatabase because it’s not the aim of the site.
    Thank you for your advice! I think all of us have the same idea when we have too big breast for standard brands.

  • Aha, I see! I was just so depressed for you looking at your reviews, haha! Seems like nothing was fitting you besides unflattering bras. Us larger-busted ladies are quite the seamstresses by force of habit, are we not?

  • Unfortunately Yes!
    And more for clothes than bras in fact! lol!

  • I tried this brain the 38L and it is a nice quality item BUT it does not quite fit my boobs, and was completely unwearable as the back size is to large for me, 34 inches. Bravissimo please bring out some larger cup sizes.
