This was my first try on bravissimo bras. It was on sale for 15 Pounds so I just added it to reach the 100 Pound threshold required for free shipping when I ordered 3 more Cleo Marcies (now I just need 5 more colorways for my collection, yay).
The cobalt blue is really intense. Too bad it's a bit darker around the band making the front part look slightly washed out. I also love the bright flowers but the 5 bows on this thing are a bit too much.
The fit is quite bad but for some reason insanely comfortable so I “forgot” to return it and still wear it ... at home or to sleep. The wires are super flexible: I can easily pinch both ends together without any lasting deformation and they go from wide to very wide when I stretch the band a few centimeters. Interestingly they don't fit too wide when wearing it. There is about 1 cm between the tip of the wires and my breast tissue. Maybe my boobs pull them back to the center because the cups are a little small? However the front part feels a little unsupportive and the gore doesn’t tack. It effectively looks and feels like a wireless bra.
The cups feel deep and projected with little space on top. They are complete rigid with a firm ribbon on top that cuts in when I lean forward but it doesn't feel to tight. Overall they give me a projected cone like look. I guess this could work better on someone with a more full on bottom shape.
The straps feel wide set even on my very wide shoulders but they don't slip. The band feels true to size but with a lot of stretch which is super nice when slouching on the couch. Quality also looks great. The fabric in front feels very smooth and soft, there are no loose threads and the clasps are properly sewn in, not threatening to come out like on some of my Cleos.
