    28E

    Didn't fit

    It could be a fine bra, but simply not for my shape despite bratabase research. The wires are way too U-shaped for my splayed roots and the cups lack depth at the wire and general projection, despite also weirdly wrinkling right above the apex. Also, if you're in between 26 and 28 bands like I am (26,5 snug underbust) it might be too big in the band.

    • Really useful review, thanks! It's a pretty bra, too bad not the best fitting. We're quite similar, I realised in shape, size and measurements. I'm around a 26.25/26.5 UB and I wear 26 bands. With 28s, the wires move around. I wouldn't dare to wear a 28 😂

    32K

    Didn't fit

    Bravissimo Millie has been around for years and it came in a bazillion colours. I tried it a while back in HH - J cup range and found it shallow, wide and kinda flimsy and unsupportive.
    So when I was recently talking to Bravissimo customer service they talked me into giving it a try again in my current 32K cup size. They said it's a really good bra in large cup sizes. What made me do it, was that the new "pink" colour way has the new more narrow wires which work generally better for me and that it was pink. I want a pink bra for years but ... cannot find any in my size range that works for me!
    Speaking of, I would not call this colour pink, maybe coral pink but it's actually neon coral, the same colour as 32J - Bravissimo » Dina Bra (LN578) which was called coral back in the day.

    My shape: narrow / medium root,center full projected, full on top.

    So about the bra - it's just not for me even with the new wire. The bra is still rather wide and shallow and the cups come up very high and bother me under my arms.
    I have trouble to adjust the bra and have it stay in place. The wire wants to slide down as there is not enough projection at the wire. there is some empty fabric on the side because the wire is too wide. Also the bra just doesn't feel supportive enough. I only judge it from like 30min trial wear. There is just too much stretch everywhere. I feel like I want to wear the band on tightest setting - despite it not being much bigger than my other bras. Straps are very stretchy and cut into my shoulder. The top section of the cups is also very stretchy which is apparently good for FOT but I feel I have to constantly adjust my boobs and the cups are being pushed down...
    What is also weird is that the bra gives a slight east-west shape, which I dislike.
    It's just weird but I guess these very stretchy bras are just not for me. My boobs are too heavy for that, they need non - stretch material for optimal support. So sadly the new improved Millie is still a no go for me.

      Bummed for you it didn’t work. That color is amazeballs!

    • Happy2BraShop finally a pretty colour in large sizes! there has been a trend for neutrals lately and I really missed colourful bras! That's why I gave it another chance.

    Didn't fit

    I had really high hopes for this bra. It reminded me of the Ewa Michalak BM Crazy Bra as far as the color goes. Which is very pretty in person, but sadly I was left very disappointed with the fit. It was definitely a shape mismatch.

    The cup is a 4 part cup consisting of two lower section and two upper sections. The lower part of the cup is lined with a matching non stretch mesh. The upper cup has an outer piece made using the same lace and matching mesh, but the upper lace is a single layer of stretch lace. The back band is full lace ... with a matching mesh lining. The center gore is wide and not too high. The straps are a very hot pink and made of a nice elastic. The hardware is black/gunmetal gray. There is a 2x3 closure.

    The center gore is very wide! And the cups also fit on the wider side. Because of this the bra tilted a bit and the bottom of the wire could be felt digging in ever so slightly. The cup is very shallow on the lower portion of the cup and squished my boobs into an East-West spread. This would work great for those with a shallower wider breast. Unfortunately it didn’t work well with my close set, very projected boobs.

      I totally thought this WAS the EM Crazy bra! Sorry this one doesn't work on you. I do love deep green bras though.

      Wilderness1 Oh how I wish this was the EM Crazy bra! That’s one I’ve been drooling over for years. The color of this bra was the main reason I gave it a try.

    Just adding in the measurement data for this bra.

    So maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee. This was recorded at 14 inches, and this is what I had entered in the measurement table. The minimum cup depth was measured by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure. This was recorded at 12 inches. It does have the typical wide wires of UK brands, but I find it doesn't poke my back like my Panache Jasmine.

    A side note: The measurements probably explain why the cup didn't fit as I think I'd probably need a depth at around 15 ... inches (or greater). I used to think that, maybe it was because of the elastic under the lace portion that caused the quadding (although this could have also contributed) but looking at these measurements, I guess I know why.. That being said, this is a lovely looking bra (just not my fit). It's also pretty firm for a 30 (it stretches to 29 inches - bad for a 30 back, good for 28's that need to sister size)

      Yay for data!! It's a beautiful bra, sorry it didn't fit.

      Yeah, I've been meaning to add the measurements for the bra for a while now, just couldn't get around to it...But data is great and it helps a lot when deciding what bra to try.

      It is definitely a beautiful bra, thanks. I still wear it around the house, so I'm making use of it, lol..it's too pretty not to wear XD

      Indeed!!

      Thank you for adding this data, it is very helpful.

    • No problem :) I know how much measurements are needed when trying to make a decision.

    Didn't fit

    The Millie bra is a balconette with stretchy lace on top. It's a quite delicate bra made of lace and lined with mesh. It looks nice, I give it that.

    My shape: full on top, medium wide tall roots, center full, projected

    If you look at my side pics - you see that on one side there is wrinkling and on the other is not. That's because one of my boobs is wider than the other. So I mostly only have wire width problems on my narrower side (unless a bra has super wide wires). The wires on Millie are average for that size.
    Another problem is the wrinkling at ... the bottom. I cannot fill out the bottom because there isn't enough projection at the wire. The cups are kinda shallow.
    I feel like my boobs push the bra down. I also get slight overspill at the top.

    The band is true to size for a 34 and a bit too large for me. It has a 3x3 closure. I could consider trying a 32K but I won't. I mainly dislike how weak the bra feels overall. There is no uplift and it's lacking in support. It doesn't do much for my boobs. The way it is ill-fitting at the wire makes it only worse. I also feel like I have to constantly adjust the wire up to my IMF.

    So I really don't recommend it for heavy breasts that need projection at the wire and lots of support. I recommend it though for fot shape if you have rather shallow breasts that don't need as much support.

    Currently wearing with a bra extender as although passes the band test, feels slightly too tight for comfort. This may just need wearing in before removing the bra extender. Gives great shape in clothing. Generally comfortable, however, centre gore wire rubs against sternum after wearing for more than a couple of hours. Looks lovely

    30F

    Didn't fit

    This bra is so pretty. I desperately wanted it to fit. I ordered this bra blind (no data was available in this size) hoping for the best - but I think this model, in this size, might work better for someone with slightly wider and shallower breasts, who needs a firm band.

    The appearance of this bra is outstanding. It is straight up gorgeous. The white lace overlay is dreamy and gives the bra a really romantic look and feel, and gives the bra an almost longline look without the extra fabric. The stretch lace at the top of the cup has lots of give - it ... is really accommodating. The bottom of the cups are lined with what appears to be power mesh and are much less forgiving - the hold / support of the cups is firm. While the stretch lace at the top was really accommodating for my FOT boobs (and looked great!), but the bottom of the cup was not quite deep enough and I felt very squished. The wires of this bra are also wider than I typically prefer.

    The band of this bra was surprisingly firm. I typically wear a 28 band and found the band of this bra to be ideal on the middle hook. If you are a true 30 or need a little more stretch, you may want to size up.

    • I hear you on the Millie. The first time I ordered from Bravissimo, I sent it back, very sad because it is utterly stunning & I don't fully understand why. I ultimately got fitted into Millie at an actual U.K. Bravissimo, and my mind changed. I bought the dark blue one - still stunning - and figured out that I needed to go all the way to a 32H to fit properly. It is a very firm band, indeed.

    32HH

    Didn't fit

    I had high expectations for this bra. Similarly constructed bras Panache Jasmine and Envy did not work for me.

    So to start on a positive note:
    The bra looks really pretty and well made. The fabric with overlaying lace is soft and good quality. The lace upper cup is very stretchy. Also there is no elastic ribbon at the cup edge, so no cutting in. I also really liked the round shape I got in this bra.

    The bad:
    The bra just felt very unsupportive! It only features a 2 hook closure in this size. The band feels thin and flimsy and not supportive enough for a heavy bust. ... (32HH is still a large size!) I found that a lot of weight was on the straps. Also they are very narrow would cut in easily. The wire width was okay but I found the wings to be too low. It's not that breast tissue would escpae (as the option I had to choose here said) but I think a taller wing would give more support. There was also quite a bit of jiggling when I moved (as expected with a soft stretchy lace) but I found it was too much. Weirdly I even had some slight gaping going on where the strap meet the cups... I really don't understand. I usually wear even a 32J in Bravissimo Alana so this bra here is NOT too big.
    Anyway overall it just felt too weak and I wouldn't not recommend it, if you looking for supportive everyday bra in that size range.

    I'd love to try 30J or 30JJ and see if they fit me better since those sizes have 3x3 closure and extra lining for support.

      This whole move to 2 hooks sucks. Have you tried Elomi in 32H or HH? They have three hooks.

    • 1

      Also it looks like the wires are a similar width to these bravissimos.

    • cupandahalf I tried a few Elomi bras in 32J. Most wires were too wide, cups a bit too tall but not roomy enough at the centre. I liked the plunge Matilda or Charley but I cannot stand the low gores, they hurt me and I need the support of the taller gore at the wire. I don't know which style I should try.

    • I really liked Morgan/Meredith. In my size the wires are really narrow. They are also taller than the plunges so maybe no stabby stabby?

    • cupandahalf I tried both of them in 32J. I found the wires very flexible on me, support was not the best. Maybe I should try them again in 32HH.

    • 1

      Well if you already tried them it’s probably not worth it. Panache bras also have three hooks in these sizes and have similar wire widths so that’s another avenue to try.

    • cupandahalf do you remember the Tatiana bra from a few years back? it was a balconette / full cup but no stretchy lace. All over that satin-y like fabric? Is there a model on current Elomi collections that is similar? I think they all are either plunges or have stretch lace tops.

    • Supposedly that’s the same cut as Elomi Cate. I never tried Tatiana so I can’t be sure but what you describe sounds very similar to Cate.

    • cupandahalf Thanks. Cate is similar to former Caitlyn. It was decent in large sizes like Tatiana but very wide wires. They start at 34 band so maybe they are not so good in my current size range.

    • 1

      That’s too bad. The smaller band equivalent is Fantasie full cups which you’ve tried I think.

    • I gave up on Elomi for now. There are many Bravissimo styles left that I can try. Many of them still have 3 hooks in larger sizes.

    34E

    Fits

    The Pink/Red color's a new color released for Valentine's Day, with 10% of sales going to CoppaFeel, a charity fighting breast cancer. Absolutely beautiful color, I really love how the deep red straps contrast with the pink of the bra. As someone with short roots and no upper fullness, it's very difficult to find bras that are short enough in the cups/closed off on top- I wear almost exclusively half cups, and the Millie's the only exception, and this 34E fits perfectly.

    32H

    Fits

    It was my first bra that I fitted myself through online shopping and thanks to which I really got to know my size. Lace is very kind to the bust, especially asymmetrical and less firm. Perfectly adheres to the body and emphasizes the neckline. The quality is brilliant. The lace is of the highest quality. The tube material is flexible but stable. I was captivated by details such as, for example, the gold finish of the hooks instead of the standard metal painted in the color of the material.
    The band seems flexible enough to me, but still stable, that I have it both in size 32H and 34GG in a different color and both fit well and I feel comfortable in both. In total, I have 3 Millie bras: black and white, size 32H and forest green, size 34GG. This is my favorite bra so far. Generally, most bras bite and hurt me, but this one is reasonably comfortable. My bust is heavy, low set and a bit hanging, full on top.
