I've wanted to give Bravissimo another whirl, and with all these cute new fabrics, now seems the perfect time. I LOVE this bra! The support and shape are stellar -- comfortable underwires, and perfectly (but not overly) round shape. I had some slight wrinkling, particularly on my smaller breast when I first tried it on, but it's gone after wash and wear. My only gripe was that the wires at the gore dug in my sternum the first time I wore this, but I've found that to be true with all of the Bravissimo bras I've tried. After bending them out a bit, the issue is gone. Once ... this was resolved, this bra is astoundingly comfortable. The cups are made of a thick and sturdy material, so there's no headlights coming through, and support is great. This bra feels like a nice big boob hug of support, which I generally only get in my EM padded bras. The print is a good compromise of cutesy -- definitely not what I'd call sexy, but also not knocking on To Catch a Predator levels of cutesy. I really like the touch of bright lace to bring in the, 'yes, I am an adult' factor to this print.
Size wise, this is perfect for where I am now in both band and cup. I seem to be somewhere between 32GG/H and 34G/GG. In my order, I tried two of their padded plunges, both in 34H, and one was much too big and the other was mostly 'meh', so I exchanged them for 2 more of the non-padded plunges. I've read Starburst in particular runs large, but the customer service rep I spoke to about sizing claimed all of their non-padded plunges were cut from the same pattern, so they should all, in theory, be sized the same. I love the wide band and 3 hook fastening, and that this doesn't cut into my FoT tissue at all. The wires are a bit wide, but that somehow magically doesn't impact shape much, if at all. Overall, can't recommend this enough for those who love plunges!
