    Good old Alana. A bra that has been around for years. It is just very reliabale and supportive.

    I had a few of these bras over the years. The fit has always been tricky as the Alana is a bra that is not made for full on top boobs. It's top section is very tight and the cups are not very tall. I used to size up 2 cup sizes to get a decent fit.

    My shape: projected, narrow roots, center heavy, full on top, tall roots

    Since I last had one of These (34L) I lost some weight I decided to try it again.
    I really love this ... lilac color with the light yellow, such a lovely color combination and very unique. I knew I had to have it. It makes me happy just looking at it.

    When I received this bra 2 months ago, it fitted quite well. At that time I was around 32HH in other bras so I decided to give Alana a try in 32J. It did cut in just a little bit but it was barely visible so I do not count it as quadboob. I just thought that is the bra being not made for my shape. Everything else fits just fine. The bra is also really supportive despite not having any extra lining in the cups. You get what you see on the promo pictures in all sizes up to L-cup!

    I am a solid 32J now and since Alana runs small I need 32JJ. I'm so sad this does not fit me anymore, it is one of my favorites just from the look and color combination. I will keep it around for size fluctuations which happen to me all the time. Also I might loose some of my extra winter weight and then it will fit again.

    This bra is the new cut of Alana. It fits the same like the old cut, see here http://bra.pe/X1lC/ but the shoulder straps are a different material and it does not have this scalloped thread thing at the band anymore.

    • That is a really really pretty bra!! Maybe I should try it. I'm projected, center full, narrow roots, but I think my vertical roots are on the short side, so even though I'm even for FOT/FOB when I check, I often have trouble filling out higher cut bras....

    • confused Alana is a good one to start with Bravissimo. It's one of their staples and has been around for years. They do recommend sizing up even on the website. So it runs small and the cup is more closed on top / shorter. I think it could work for you.

      I've got a Gorsenia coming from Amazon that I think is gonna be just about perfect (fingers crossed!). But Alana may be my next try!

    • Oh my. I freaked out for nothing. My Pms boobs were extreme this time and now they gone back to normal the bra fits again (with minor cutting in). I labeled the "too small" pics now as pms boob pics.

    • Yeah the bra is just too small for me now :( Will try a 32JJ next.

    This is so pretty! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> I went up a cup size compared to my Freya bras. The underwire is slightly too narrow and pokes my sides a bit, but I really like that most of the volume is in the forward projection. It gives a nice rounded shape, and the embroidery along the top is very lovely. The band is wide, and nice and firm. Maybe a smidge too tight for me, but I may also just be used to my usual Freya bands. The straps are wide, sturdy, and nice and soft to the touch, and I have plenty of length to spare.

    Edited to add - the underwire has widened a bit, so it's now very comfortable, same as the band https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I hope Bravissimo releases this in more non-pink, non-neon colours https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />

    Check out my review of the Alana in the lilac/ yellow colorway: http://bra.pe/X1os/
    Both bras are the same size and fit. The only difference between this Alana in black is that this is the older cut. They did not change anything about the cup / shape but this older version does have the scalloped thread thing at the band which the newer version does not have.

    I found it dug in really badly at the centre wire.
