I got this bra cheaply with the intention of altering it. The cups fit, the band is too big and rides up. I will review the bra after I altered the band because now as it is, it is unwearable.
I finally altered this bra. I decided to not just shorten the band but also make it a 4 hook - closure bra! I bought some cheap 4-hook bra extenders on Ebay. For my alternation I needed 2. I removed hooks on the inner side on one so they match then I sewed one on every side of the band. Before I had removed the old fastener. It ... worked very well and it's really super easy to do. I only needed like 15 mins to do this.
Now I have a very well fitting, 34KK Bravissimo bra with a 4-hook closure! Yay https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I had to test it immediately and it works quite well. I even think it's a bit more supportive than the usual bra with the 3-hook closure...
I really do like this bra now! I wish bravissimo would do more of their best-selling Balconette bras up to a L-cup.
Update September 2015:
I don't wear the bra anymore. Since I did not cut off any material of the band, it did not get much shorter from my alternation I described above. So the band still was too big for me. I thought about shortening the band, but it would have left almost no stretch it did it which made the bra uncomfortable so I have undone a band alternation.
The bra is like a Bravissimo 36 band or a small 38, which is too big for me. (Band of Bravissimo bras run small anyway)
