Bravissimo Millie has been around for years and it came in a bazillion colours. I tried it a while back in HH - J cup range and found it shallow, wide and kinda flimsy and unsupportive.
So when I was recently talking to Bravissimo customer service they talked me into giving it a try again in my current 32K cup size. They said it's a really good bra in large cup sizes. What made me do it, was that the new "pink" colour way has the new more narrow wires which work generally better for me and that it was pink. I want a pink bra for years but cannot find any in my size range that works for me!
Speaking of, I would not call this colour pink, maybe coral pink but it's actually neon coral, the same colour as 32J - Bravissimo » Dina Bra (LN578) which was called coral back in the day.
My shape: narrow / medium root,center full projected, full on top.
So about the bra - it's just not for me even with the new wire. The bra is still rather wide and shallow and the cups come up very high and bother me under my arms.
I have trouble to adjust the bra and have it stay in place. The wire wants to slide down as there is not enough projection at the wire. there is some empty fabric on the side because the wire is too wide. Also the bra just doesn't feel supportive enough. I only judge it from like 30min trial wear. There is just too much stretch everywhere. I feel like I want to wear the band on tightest setting - despite it not being much bigger than my other bras. Straps are very stretchy and cut into my shoulder. The top section of the cups is also very stretchy which is apparently good for FOT but I feel I have to constantly adjust my boobs and the cups are being pushed down...
What is also weird is that the bra gives a slight east-west shape, which I dislike.
It's just weird but I guess these very stretchy bras are just not for me. My boobs are too heavy for that, they need non - stretch material for optimal support. So sadly the new improved Millie is still a no go for me.
