Didn't fit

My first Bravissimo bra! I’m not sure about how it fit and I’m on the fence about keeping it or sending it back and trying another size or not bothering with it at all.

I know this colorway is pretty polarizing. I actually really like pansies, so I’m pretty fond of the print. I’m not really a white bra gal, but it’s cute! The pansies definitely make up for the white for me.

The bra itself is constructed very well. It has really nice firm fabric which reminds me of Ewa Michalak SF bras. The wires are firm but not uncomfortable. The straps are very stretchy and the band is pretty comfortable.

My main issue is the depth and the location of where the most depth is…it kind of reminds me of my Nessa bras because it doesn’t have as much immediate projection at the wire. It slopes up pretty dramatically and leaves me gaping at the bottom. I can fit one or two fingers between the wire and my IMF because of how the cups are constructed. My issue with my Nessa bras is that the slope was so dramatic like with Penny that my boobs settle at the apex and gap like how I just described. So that’s why I’m unsure if I’ll keep this one or not. This is another one I need to mull over before sending back. I’m curious if a 34JJ would fit better or worse, so I may send it back and try that size instead if it’s even available.

This bra is not owned any more

    Hey congrats on your first Bravissimo bra!
    The pattern has grown on me and it's prettier in person that on their product photos! I think the bra looks very good on you! I don't find the bottom wrinkling very bad, I also get a little of that in my bra but it's supportive nonetheless. I have seen much worse in other bras.

    Thank you! I really love everything about the bra except the fit. I really do need more space at the bottom. I’m sure it’s super supportive but the issues with this bra were the same as both the Nessa bras I’m departing with (although the Nessa wires are much less firm, so that’s a win for the Penny bra).

    Unfortunately they don’t have another size up for me to try, and I think a 34K would be too big, so I’m sad but it’s just not meant to be I think.

    This looks amazing on you! Sorry the fit isn’t what you wanted.

    pretty_promise You could ask Bravissimo to put you on a wait list for the 34JJ. In case someone is going to return one, they can let you know.
