    The Luxe Heart is an older style that has been discontinued long ago and I got this bra in an exchange from another user here on Bratabase. It is based on the same balconette cut like Bravissimo Alana. In the Alana and it's related models I always had to size up at least 1-2 cup sizes compared to my UK size at a time. It also has not so much room in the upper cup. The upper part of the bra has additional lining in black so it looks nothing like the stock photo in large cups. (Meh It's always the same...)

    The bra is definetly one of ... the most wearable bras I got lately. The cups have no gaping on top and almost no wrinkling on bottom. I say that cup depth here is right for me. The wires are a bit too wide for me like on all UK brands. What is interesting is that the wires are lower on the sides in this bra than for example in the same size on my 34K - Bravissimo » Georgia Bra (LN563). Also the cup on the Georgia bra is much taller than on Luxe Heart. Georgia is listed as full cup and Luxe Heart / Alana etc. are balconnetes. Since the cups are less tall and the wings are lower I don't get the cutting into the arms effect as much on this bra. I still think the straps are a bit too separate on this but it's not such a big issue. The shape under a top is very nice rounded from the side and not too east-west from the front. (far better than Panache Tango!)

    I wore the bra for a full day and felt good in it. Then on the next day I wanted to wear it again (note that I have barely any bra that fits properly at the moment) and it felt less supportive and I felt that I need a tighter band. So I forced myself to wear Melrose and Tango in between since I know you should not wear your bra 2 days in a row. When I wore it again, I had to close it on the second set of hooks already to get enough support from the band. I felt pressure on the straps (red marks) and that it got less supportive over the day. It's not too bad by any means, but also not really good. I'm still glad I own this bra and it is wearable until I have some better bras.

      Glad you have something you can wear. Too bad about the band, but it looks great on you! And very pretty...

      oh this one really does look promising! Maybe in a 32 would be even better.

    • wendybien Yes it does :) At least it is wearable until I have something better. The style is discontinued so I cannot get another size in this but I have a huge order of Bravissimo bras in several styles and sizes on it's way to me. I also put some 32Ks in there and only ordered 34JJ if there were complaints about awfully tight bands in the reviews. :) I also now think I should go for 32 bands and break them in with an extender if necessary.

    • The band started to ride up and I had some gaping of the cups on the end of the day. Also neck pain… :( looks like I'd be better in 32K for sure...

    • Yep, I think so. Don't forget also that in a 32 AND better-dimensioned cup you will not need to tighten strap as much so the band will sit lower, where you are smaller, and even if it's a bit tight it will tend to creep down instead of up.

  2. This is the most comfortable and well-fitting bra I've found. I think I fit into Bravissimo bras quite well, as their underwires are fairly close together. As in the Alana, I have slight overspill at the top and slight wrinkling at the bottom due to fullness at the top, but this isn't a huge issue for me. This bra is sultry and gorgeous, with a lovely rounded shape. It has "additional lining" above an H cup (the black upper panel), which I personally prefer to the sheer. It has gorgeous detail of heart-shaped beads on the ends of the bow on the central gore, which I really love. ... It is valentines themed, so I hope they come out with more colours for this. Some people find the material scratchy but I don't find it a problem - it is made of a stiff material which I find very supportive. The straps are only partly adjustable due to the ruffle decoration, which is ok for me but won't work for everyone. The band seems to run slightly tighter than in the other Bravissimo bras I have, but not enough to size down in.

    It's a very nice bra. I like the colour and the patern as well.
    Construction: robust and the straps are wide.
    The bra itself smaller as the average Bravissimo bras in this size. It would work with narrow shoulder.
    Until now I haven't found a very good shape at @bravissimio. But it would be ok. It gave me a rounded shape and the boobs are not far away.
    Due to the measurements it is not a good size to me, I'm not happy because of it, I could only try it.
    Pros.:
    Rounded shape
    Wide straps
    Cons.:
    The material itself a little bit roud can hurt the skin
