    28J

    Didn't fit

    I ordered the Bravissimo Contour in my search for a H+ strapless bra. I am usually a 28HH (Panache)/28J (CK, Flirtelle), and since the only other Bravissimo bra I had ran small in the cup, I decided to order a 28J.

    Before it arrived, I lost a lot of weight and basically moved from a 28HH/J range to a 28H/HH (my current measuremements should reflect this).

    FIT:

    The band is very tight, and at first I put it on with an extender (buckled on the first row of hooks). The cups fit well then, even if they flattened the top of my full-on-top breasts. However, it worked only with the straps, ... when I wore the bra as a strapless around the house, it started sliding down (the cups were winkling, etc.)

    I fastened it without the extender, which strained the hooks a little. I recall some talk around the site about not straining the closing, but with a strapless bra, I think it's inevitable if you want it to stay in place. The bra stopped sliding down, however, I got major quadraboob on my bigger boob - a bit disconcerting, since the bra was supposed to be at least one cup size too big.

    I think that the construction is a little off here. The wires are very wide and they get pulled almost all the way to the back, which leaves very little depth at the front, resulting in quadboob. With a normal bra, it would be wise to go up a bandsize, but a strapless wouldn't then stay in place.

    The bra sits a little lower on one's back and has, for me, quite a wide bridge between the cups.

    CONSTRUCTION/APPEARANCE:

    The bra is not padded, it is made of some sort of thick fabric, and the lower part of the cup is strengthened by extra boning. It's sewn onto the cup only along the lower edge, so you can sort of flip it back and forth, but you can't remove it. The color is a lighter nude and the bra is invisible under light tops. There are four hooks, and the straps can be attached to three different places (two on the edge of each cup, one at each end of the band).

    APPEARANCE WHEN WORN:

    Up to this point, I was still considering keeping the bra. The quadboob was, after all, only on one boob, and a small price to pay (in my opinion) for a J-cup strapless. However, the bra looks quite terrible when put on - pointy, east-and-west-splayed and very wideset. See the pictures to get an idea. It doesn't make one's boobs look bigger (the way a padded Freya Deco Strapless does), but it just gives them a really, really weird shape.

    SUMMARY:

    If you want to order the bra, definitely go at least one cup size up, and perhaps even a band size up (I like tight bands, but a 30 would probably work as well).

    I am not keeping it, because I think the shape is horrid and because the cup is too small for my larger boob.

    • The pictures were most helpful, thank you. Almost bought it. I think I would have cried if it did that to my boobs :)

    Really really impressed with this! Expected it to not hold up at all, but it sure did! Why have people not thought of boned cups before? I want to put bones in all my unlifting bras (=all of them) now! It amazing :D And the firm, wide band was also excellent for holding up the weight. A nice detail is that for the straps, there are 2 places you can hook it on at the front - so both those that prefer wider or closer set straps can be comfy :) Annd, the non-slip rubber is at both the top ... and bottom of the band, and all along the bottom of the cups.

    Now, to the bads: I wish the wires were a lot higher, so it could keep in my tissue: Usually tightening straps can make the wire sit firmer in the side, holding in tissue, so when wearing this as a strapless, tissue escaped - especially because it was too small in the cup. The top section closes in, and gives the most 'elf-shoed' boob I've ever seen. Overall, very minimizing! My boobs looked tiny!

    If I needed it, I would proably reorder it in 36J to get a bigger cup, and then I could just wear it on the 2nd hook. But for now, it has satisfied my curiosity.

    Not my size so it is too big in the top of the cup. Would be interested to try a cup size or two smaller though.

  4. Everything was fine except but the top of the cup.
    I mean I knew it's strapless bra So I get it that you designed it be stable. but top of the cup was too much. not opened designed almost just closed deisgn. I don't understand whether it's designed to be hold my breast tissue or to eat up my upper breast tissue.
    the band was snug I can fasten anywhere I want It'feel so secure I love it.
    It's well structured bra. when I wear something tight I can see the bones at the bottom of cup slightly

    If I ever Had 28J I counldn't feel in the cup. the cup could have been small for me.

    Its OK, it was the best out of several I tried on. It doesn't look very flattering on though!
