I was very excited to find this bra at the sale price in my size. This colorway is gone now but they restocked the bra in a black/beige color. It looks a bit like a sports bra but the lace makes it also look like a bralette. It is supportive since it has a regular bra built in. The bra underneath is in a beige color and it looks like a basic Alana-Balconette-cut. The material is nice and sturdy and has no stretch to it. Then there is the purple lace overlay that is also lined with a thin beige mesh fabric. The lace fabric is stretchy.

The fit: The band (wide with 3x3 hooks !) is tts and it's a bit tight on me, it also does not have so much stretch to it, so keep that in mind. The band part at the front does roll up with wear. The cups are likely to fit similar to regular Balconette cups in Bravissimo. I could use a bit more room on top but I always do since I'm very full on top.

The shoulder straps are full adjustable. I get a round centered shape in this bra. It almost feels a bit like the Panache Sports bra but thankfully it isn't as constricting. After a full day of wear I experienced some pain at the underwire at the underbust area. I think that the bra is a bit tight for me If I had the chance I would try a 34J to compare.

But for now it is okay, I don't always get the pain. I think that it is nice to have this bra in your rotation but maybe not to wear every single day.
I like to have something different in my collection. It also kinda downplays my boobs and I really love this look. I would like a bikini bra in this style!

  • Wow, I really like the looks of this. It gives you a really nice shape and it is cute.

    Would be great to wear under low cut shirts and dresses as a faux cami!

    Oh I haven't thought of this. Great idea. very handy in summertime so you don't have to wear an extra cami. I see now the appeal of the new black one they brought out, it will go with more colors to match.

    I have a dress that this would be perfect under, kind of wistful.

    I hate layering, I don’t like the bulky feeling, so something like this would be great for me!

    I agree would be great for layering! I've never tried Bravissimo

  • I also don't like layering in summer. But as a busty girl I have often to wear a cami top for modesty. So this Maya bra really ticks a box.

    confused Bravissimo bras are awesome, really recommend them. Quality and support is usually good.

    Oooh this is a cute style and definitely an option instead of wearing a cami under certain styles. I realised that I'm not a big fan of layering (mostly because of the heat).. So this is definitely an option to watch

    This bra is the same cut as the Maya bra. I think it's even better to wear a as cami-bra since black goes with everything: https://www.bravissimo.com/products/arla-bra-black-ln680blk/
    It's on my wish list.

    oooh, that's great! Thanks for the link...although I'm just realising that they only go up to a J, so I'll just have to leave it on my watch list for now :(

    Frazzleberry yes they do them only up to J-cup but I find it supportive enough it could easily work up higher. Maybe they expand the size range in the future? The band is tight but the cups do not run big... 30J maybe fits only close to 28JJ.

    alisa I find that when it comes to bravissimo I actually don't mind wearing their 30 backs, so I'm not too worried about the band size.

    You're correct about the cups, as I don't feel it would be big enough. I'm almost tempted to try it in the 32J. But I think I'll wait to see if they expand their size range.

    Hey this one is 3 hooks all the way down to 30dd for some reason...

  • Frazzleberry I like that Bravissimo band sizes are very much true to size, 32 band never stretch more than 32 inch. I have Panache bras in 30 band that are bigger than some 32 on Bravissimo :) It's very good for us at the upper end of cup sizes.

    cupandahalf I think for this style it fits the look of the bra so they went with it for all sizes. I wish they would do that on more also "regular" bras. Have 3 hook bra and other model with 2 hooks so everyone can choose what they like :)

  • Frazzleberry The Arla bra which is the same cut as Maya now comes up to K -cup! https://www.bravissimo.com/products/arla-bra-ln680/#navy-white-ln680nvw
