    Purchased in Oct 2015, this white Alana is still comfortable and supportive despite at least 100+ wears. I purchased this Alana along with a nude and Teal on the same order and the white seems to now be just a little bit less supportive, especially in the cup where I have a bit of sagginess, especially when compared to the teal. The teal was worn far less than either the white or nude so that could explain why it is still holding up.
    At the time of this purchase, Bravissimo was enduring a controversy relating to wires popping out of their channels prematurely. I was so thrilled with the ... fit and comfort of my initial purchases that I decided to double up on my Alana orders with the expectation that I too would have to deal with the wire issue. I have never had to. I hand wash all my bras regardless of brand so that may have contributed to my success with the Alana.
    One inconsistency I have noticed between different colorways is the softness of the hook and eye materials. Some, like the Papaya's I purchased in 2017 are very soft and luxurious while others, like all 3 on this order are rather plain. Curious.
    If you don't mind a tendency to a cakes on a plate look, the Alana may become a staple for you as it is for me. Through the course of time, I have noticed that my Alana's tend to initially have the cakes on a plate look but will soften and become a rounder shape with frequent use. This white Alana does not do a very good job of masking my nipples though so I tend to wear a camisole or add additional layers of clothing or if I have to, nipple covers, to compensate.
    I recently purchased the lilac/lemon version which has different straps that tend to roll up and dig in. That feels like a step backwards for Bravissimo.

    Purchased in Oct 2015, this Alana in teal is still comfortable and supportive although perhaps a little less so now in 2020. I purchased a white Alana on the same order and the white seems to be just a little bit less supportive, especially in the cup where I have a bit of sagginess compared to the teal. To be fair to the white, I wore this teal maybe 6 times a year and the white maybe 6 times a month.
    If you don't mind a tendency to a cakes on a plate look, the Alana may become a staple for you as it is for me. Through the ... course of time, I have noticed that my Alana's tend to initially have the cakes on a plate look but will soften and become a rounder shape with frequent use. This teal Alana seems to mask my nipples a little better than other colors but I still try to wear layers of clothing.
    Before I became aware of Bravissimo and the Alana, I was stuck with matronly fullcup bras with very tall wings that quite often didn't breathe well, especially in the summer. With the Alana, my excessive summer boob sweat seems like a distant memory.
    Bravissimo appears to have altered the design and materials of their newer Alana colorways. My most recent Alana purchase has newer straps that tend to roll up and dig in so I prefer older versions such as this teal.
