Wow!!! This bra gives me a wonderful upfront display should I so desire. As someone who has only recently gained noticeable breasts, this is taking a little time to get used to, but I'm looking forward to my first outing with a low cut top on, once my confidence levels have risen.
I had originally tried 28FF and 28G, the latter was OK, but Bravissimo suggested I should try 28GG. I love the fit, the cups are wide enough for my boobs, unlike the 28G, and I also feel much more secure with the wider band and triple hooks of the 28GG compared with the double hooks of the 28G.
I think the cobalt blue 30F Bravissimo Demi Diva Bra runs bigger in the cups than many of their other half cup bras, including Tanzania Stripe in the same size. I tried their Mademoiselle in the green/purple color combo, and it fit well, like the Tanzania Stripe, in 30F.
The cobalt blue Demi Diva, however, has straps that are just too wide for me, a rare problem for me despite my height. I have broad, square shoulders. The Diva's straps, however, dig into my armpits, and my arms push back, wrinkling the top of the cups a bit.
The Diva's cups also seem to come up higher than the other Bravissimo half cups I've tried. I still get the cakes on a plate profile, and I love the color, but this bra is just not comfortable for me. I also no longer tolerate the high gores of half cups well, unless they are super cushioned, as they are in some extremely high end bras.
Bought this bra from another Bratabase as new or worn very, very little.
I could tell already from the pictures that this is the perfect style for me, and indeed it is! I love the round shape, and the bra is just all-over pretty <3
The band is barely okay on the tightest hooks as new, but it will be too big in no time. That was no surprise, though, as the measurements clearly indicated that – a 30H would be the correct size for me, but there were no bras listed in that size Anyway, the band isn’t THAT big, so it most probably won’t be a problem to narrow it down once it’s stretched out.
Three hooks = yay. The straps adjust all the way = yay (and still they’re almost too long). The straps are completely flat and soft, and don’t stretch horribly much, which indicates that they’re probably quite comfortable to wear.
Oh and the side support construction on the cups is just genius!
It's a unpadded half-cup. It's too small in cups for me and I don't think the shape is ok for my soft, heavy on the bottom breast. This bra would be better for somebody with fuller boobs. It's a pretty bra, black and sexy
This is an unusual bra. The straight-across cut off the cups is not like any other bra I own, and may be a little daring for some. It's not the most supportive shape, but it could be worse. I had to tighten the straps almost all the way to get good uplift, so some may find the straps too short. They are fully-adjustable. I got a good rounded shape from this bra, which I think would be even better if you are full on top (I'm really not). The colour is a bright pillar-box red with leopard print bows. It's a great colour, but is let down for me ...by the embroidery on the cups, which feels very old-fashioned. The main problems I have with this bra are the wires. The centre gore is very high and digs in for me, as I have little space between my breasts. The cups are wide too, which doesn't work for my shape. The wires were not comfortable for me, but might have been better if I'd bent the bra to my shape. Ultimately, I returned it so I did not have an opportunity to do this. Read more 84 more words
Simply insanely wide wires - literally touched my shoulder-blades! Can't imagine who that is designed for :/ The strap was attached to the back of the band only 1" away from the wire - who is this shaped for!? I did that test too where you close the bra, and see if it can lay flat (if it can, then at least half the circumsphere is band, rather than cup) it could absolutely not lay flat! Which means way more than half the bra was cup. I don't get it. I think this may be a flaw only with specific sizes, because I've seen other have succes with it ...- maybe they only 're-design' the cups for some size, and for others they just shorten the bands. Hmm..
Other than that, quite lovely - Very good shape! I am a fan of padded bras, but this shape and comfort (besides wires) would live up to my requirements It also looks great - there is side support on the cup, which takes up about 1/3 which isn't as cute, but good for shape, I guess. The straps start at this part too, so about 1/3 into the cup. Read more 92 more words
Initially tried 2 sizes on this bra, 28FF and 28G, as Bradar suggesting I am between these 2 sizes, probably closer to 28FF than 28G. The 28G is a much better fit, however I still have one or two issues, I feel the cups are still not quite wide enough.
It would be wearable for short periods if there wasn't an alternative - however Bravissimo suggested I tried the 28GG, which is a much better fit on me.
Initially tried 2 sizes on this bra, 28FF and 28G, as Bradar suggesting I am between these 2 sizes, probably closer to 28FF than 28G, however quite simply the cups in the 28FF are too small for my boobs, I can't really get them into the cups. Not a good look for me....
I initially thought the band fit better than the 28FF, but it's actually a bit loose and fits best on the second hook. I think next time I'll stick with the 28 and wear it with an extender.
In terms of comfort, it's ok when I put it on but the centre gore is pokes pretty badly by the end of the day. I think it will require a bit of breaking in before it will feel comfortable. The shape it gives is good, round but not too round.
