    TL;DR at the bottom.

    Style and material: The Bravissimo Millie is a non-padded balconette bra with floral-style lacing on both the cups and the band. The inside of the bra and lining on the cups and extra material on the band presumably for reinforcement and extra bust support. This bra looks delicate but feels rather sturdy, comparing it to my Bravissimo Stella, there is less give in the material which is excellent if you're looking for a bra that doesn't wear out easily. On initial wear, the Millie almost feel a bit suffocating but not overly-tight as I wasn't used to wearing bras of the correct band size and ... such feeling disappeared after a couple wears. This was also the first bra I wore with underwires in years, and I wouldn't recommend this as a starter bra as the underwire, an therefore the gore is super stiff and can be a bit painful if you're not used to them or have sensitive skin. After a few days of wear and breaking into the bra, a lot of the initial discomfort disappeared. Unfortunately I still have issues with the material of the bra straps as the material feels a bit scratchy on my skin after 6+ hours of moving about at work but overall its not unbearable.

    Shape - bra vs me: Oh boy, the Millie makes my breasts look AMAZING! It provides great lift and centres the tissue which I recommend if you have wide set breasts like mine. This bra also seems to create the illusion of 'top-fullness' which is another bonus. Unfortunately, the shape just isn't built for me. I feel some emptiness at the bottom of the cup which doesn't cause any discomfort but is a clear sign that I still haven't found my IT bra. As well as this, I have that same wrinkling in the material on the right cup (smaller breast) with every other non-padded bra I've owned.

    The size (28E): The size seems ideal, the cup size down cause my breasts to spill over the top and made them appear flattened. The band is honestly perfect, it sits in place all day and I'm still wearing it on the loosest set of hooks as it hasn't stretched out much at all since it's purchase.

    TL;DR: The Bravissimo Millie is a balconette style bra which provides great lift and support. If you want a bra to make your breasts seem perky, full-looking, and close set then this is the one for you. However, it's tough wiring and slightly scratchy straps means it can be quite an uncomfortable bra for those who are new to underwires or have sensitive skin. It unfortunately didn't meet my expectations of a well fitting bra due to the gap between my breast tissue and the bottom of the bra.

      Scratchy might be because it is new and will take a few washes to relax. But if it’s not the right shape, you got other more important issues to deal with.

      Also, the gore looks too wide for you. But it’s really lovely looking on you.

      Calluna Thank you for that feedback, and I agree with you there.

    The band has a similar firmness to my Cleo bras, fits snug but not uncomfortable. The gore is high which I thought would be a problem as I am quite center full and have had a lot of issues with higher gores digging in. However, the gore tacks, does not sit on breast tissue, and I actually don't even feel it at all. The wires are surprisingly comfortable but are on the wider side. I am slightly FoT/closer to even fullness with average projection and firm/self-supporting tissue. There is not enough projection at the bottom of the cup for my shape so the material folds there. The wire ... moves below my IMF over the course of the day. The construction of the cup is stretch lace and gives a nice smooth and rounded shape, no cone boob! The straps are wider set and the material does cut in slightly in my armpit and shoulder blade. After several hours of wear this chafes and becomes uncomfortable. If you have wide shoulders and do not have much bottom projection, this may be a good one for you.
