I'm always in search for a lounge/sleep bra works well enough for me to work from home and sleep in, so I figured I'd try out the Nova lounge bra from Bravissimo. I've slept in it a few nights in a row, and it's VERY comfortable. The material feels a bit like swimsuit or leotard material, but is very soft. Fitwise...I do either leak out of the sides a bit or overflow in the middle if I swoop and scoop. I've been noticed that a number of my bras are a bit small on me lately, so maybe I need to go up a size. If only half cup sizes went up to a J...

Nova Lounge bra is a new wireless bra from Bravissimo. The bra band is rather stretchy and feels a bit big- but it stays in place with wear - if I only wear the bra for sleeping. The cups are made of a stretchy fabric that is lined with a very soft - cotton - like lining. There is no padding. What I like about the construction is that the cut of the cups in a triangle way helps to seperate the boobs as opposed to other sleep / lounge bras (like 32JJ-K - Bravissimo » Padded Sleep Bra (NW265) who fit like a crop top ... that just gives giant mono boob.
Now on to the issues: I mentioned the band being quite stretchy. It does not feel very supportive. I also find the cups lacking side support. maybe they could have added a thicker fabric there to support in larger sizes? Also since there are no wires in the cups, the band should do lots of work to carry my boobs but it doesn't. All weight is on the straps.
The shoulder straps have one major design flaw which is that the strap adjustor is on top of the shoulders instead of in the back --- which means the plastic piece is digging into my shoulders. It's not very comfortable for me to wear the bra for anything other than sleeping. It is not build to really support a heavy bust like mine- there is too much breast weight on the straps and not enough support from band and cups. In my size range I only recommend it for sleeping as there won't be as much weight on straps. I still get red marks in the morning from them but it isn't unbearable. I also like how the bra contains and seperates my boobs at night.
It looks on my pics like I get cleavage in this bra - which eventually happens when worn for a while my boobs naturally will go to the center and touch. But they can be arranged in the bra cups so they don't touch at the center which is a huge plus compared to other sleep bras.
