This was one of my try with Bravissimo bras. It is nok for me. Actually I'm 34Jj or K in Panache Tango. When I lost some weight the shape was nok as well. I only tried on for some houers. I got shoulder pain after it. Pros: Quite good under my arms Center gore is not too high Wide straps
Cons: East-west look Very poninty shape Not ideal for narrow shoulders.
This bra is great. Probably the best fit i have ever had. It is quite firm in the body and the cups fit perfect like it was made for me. It is also very pretty. The shape can be a bit funny under some tops though so i don't wear it with everything.
As I have had this a while I wanted to update my review. I stopped wearing this bra as quite quickly it seemed to stretch and wasn't supportive enough. In particular the straps seem really stretchy so don't seem tight enough. It is actually quite frustrating, as it is one of the few bras that really fits, and yet I never wear it.
Just adding some feedback. I no longer wear this bra, as it stretched really quickly, especially the straps. This was disappointing as it is one of the few bras that I was really happy with the fit.
From the second I put it on- it was horrible. Nothing fit the way it should. The gore kept painfully poking me, so I bent it back a bit. That didn't help. Even after scooping and swooping, wires were sitting on breast tissue, the lace wrinkled, the band was almost uncomfortably tight. It was literally the worst bra experience of my life. It's a shame, because it would've been kinda pretty, if it fit.
This is my first try with Bravissimo , as they are a little hard to come by in this area. As I had expected, this bra runs about a cup size small, so the 32JJ fits well on my right side and is a little large on the left. The band is a little tight at the moment, but I expect it to stretch. The wires go relatively far back under my arms, but enclose the tissue on the sides without feeling like they want to wrap around my back.
Unlike a lot of the bras I've tried, this one seems to be appropriately deep ...for my breasts and has only a little bit of the "east-west" problem. My breasts do not feel like they're being pressed into my armpit, though the center wire does dig a bit. However, if you do not like the pointy look, this is not the bra for you. The shape is "uptilted torpedo", though not quite as pointy as a retro bra. Since I've been wearing Ewa Michalak and Cleo , this will take a little getting used to.
The actual bra is nicely made and very sturdy-feeling, with a more breathable texture than I'm used to and plenty of attractive embellishment. The salmon is not my best color, but it would be very nice on someone with darker skin. Read more 126 more words
Simple balconette style. Fits well in the cup & the weaved ribbon at the top of the cup is extremely pretty. Only minor gripe is that there is some very, very minor wrinkling on one cup that shows through thinner clothes - so as a standard, smallish 28dd (often have trouble fully filling out the very top/bottom of cups) I only just fill this one. The support is very good, band feels like it will stay snug, centre gore firm but comfortable from first wear.
I have the bra in cornflower blue, which is such a lovely colour - hard to find a delicate yet non-pastelly hue (I normally ...go for blacks, neutrals, or bold colours/prints). Having said that, although the embroidery & ribbon are very lovely, this bra is certainly more everyday than special - perhaps it's the softness of the cup but for some reason it reminds me of the non-wired training bras I wore as a teenager. It is however wired and certainly very supportive - Bravissimo do mention the comfort factor on their website description, so I would mainly go for it if that's what you're looking for.

At first I thought this bra seemed a bit big in the cups. There was a little more wrinkling at the top and the outer edge of the cups than I would like- I think partly because the cups were a little too roomy and partly because the underwires were a little too wide. But now that I've been wearing it for about half an hour, my boobs seem to have settled in nicely. My boobs are a little deflated up top, so the lace is puckering out a little, and I definitely am not totally filling the cup all the way to the underwire under my arm, ...but there's barely any wrinkling. I really like the shape and lift it gives.
I'm wearing the band on the tightest hook right now, and have the straps tightened as much as possible, and it's comfortable and supportive now. I hope it doesn't stretch out too quickly Tailoring it would be a pain.
The fabric seems really sturdy- a lot more substantial than most bras I've tried. You can definitely tell the difference between this bra, which is 26% cotton, and other bras that are entirely synthetic.
The ribbons laced through the embroidery on the cups and straps don't seem to be very sturdily sewn in, though. The ribbon on one of the straps came off, and the ribbon on one of the cups seems like it's not hanging on very tightly. It's not a big deal though. (I kind of prefer it without the ribbons.)
