  1. I just got Bravissimo's Tanzania Stripe in a 30F, though I've worn the same bra in 28FF for some months. It's an unpadded, unlined half cup bra with that wonderful cakes-on-a-plate cleavage and rounded profile vertical seam construction is known for. Though my tight underbust measurement is 28," I decided I could probably get the same shape, with greater comfort, in a 30 band. This seems to be the case. I'm going to keep this bra. I have the matching shorts in XS. Their design is particularly beautiful and cleverly designed. The back of the shorts has an inverted triangle of the zebra stripe material. I've included photos ... of the front and back. I'm considering getting another couple pairs. I wish the purple background color were slightly more vivid, but the slightly iridescent green stripes make up for it.

    One thing that annoys me about this bra, and it's something I find in a lot of bras of all brands, is the underwire does not completely fill the underwire channel. There is .625" (5/8") of space that is not filled. I prefer my underwires as high as possible on the sides, under my arms, since I have a wide root. I slide the underwires away from the center gore a couple times a day when I wear the 28FF Tanzania Stripe. I expect to have to do the same with this 30F.

    28G

    Didn't fit

    I ordered Bravissimo's Tanzania Stripe in 28FF and 28G because the 28Fs I bought last year started to look, from the side, like those quarter cup bras that apparently are for boudoir use only. I didn't mind the extreme mounding above the cups in my 28Fs. That kind of cleavage is what I enjoy about half cups. I did think more of the volume should be in the cups, though.

    It took a while to decide between the 28FF and 28G. The tops and bottoms of the cups were smoothly filled. As you would expect, the mounding above the 28FF was more pronounced than in the 28G, but in ... the latter, there was still an attractive fullness. Where the straps attach to the 28G cups at first seemed too wide, poking me, but after a few minutes the feeling eased.

    What decided me was the slight wrinkling of the cups on the sides in the 28G. I couldn't figure out what this was. Finally I realized the wires were wider than I needed. This never happens. Whenever I've encountered other bras whose cups were the wrong size or shape, I've gotten wrinkling and gaping everywhere but the sides. So many brands and models have underwires too narrow for me.

    A note about measuring: I took the wire width and other measurements from the inside edges of the underwire. This is a change from other bras I've measured. Something I read recently makes me think I had been doing it wrong. If I find out otherwise from Jj, I'll go back and remeasure.

    This is my second Bravissimo bra purchase and sadly I am disappointed by the fit. I wanted so much for this bra to work because it is so beautiful the pictures don’t do it justice.

    The straps are purple and fully adjust, with soft elastic. There is a cute teal and tiger stripe bow where the cup meets the strap. The wires on this bra wrapped around to my back and were a little irritating because of this. There was also an inch of extra fabric tubing that the wire sits in under the arm. I could see this causing a problem with the wire pocking out of ... the fabric because of how the fabric pulls on this spot. The center gore is high typical of this shape of bra with another teal and tiger stripe bow in the center. Because the wires didn’t sit where they should be my breast got an East-West spread with flattening and it didn’t lift my breast up the way they should be. The band was nice and firm and I could actually wear it on the loosest set of hooks. There are three rows and three columns of hooks. Overall it is a very beautiful bra and I just love the colors, but because of the poor fit I will have to return this bra.

    Good support. Wires are extremely wide. High gore pokes me, but overall it's a good bra.

    A perfect halfcup bra, unfortunately it doesn't fit me :( The wires are too wide and the cup is too small.

    I really liked this bra when it was new. Band nice and snug, cups about the right size, loved the color combination. Upon arrival, it surprised me because in the modeled shots on Bravissimo's site it looked like it could be a padded bra. I've never had a bra like this (similar to the Tango?) Unpadded, kind of see-thru. I never wore it as a daily bra (prefer t-shirt bras as most of my tops are thin and snug fitting)

    After losing 15lbs and a cup size, this bra is far too big in the cups. )=

    First off, though the picture on Bravissimo makes this bra look blueish it is purple and green.

    I'd say the band is a regular to slightly stretchy 28 versus the Bravissimo Paradiso Plume Bra (LN141) which is tight/firm. The cups on this bra are too big for me but I do tend to wear a 28FF - Bravissimo was just out of that size. The apex of the bra was a smidge too high for me and there was loose fabric at the top of the cup that couldn't be helped by tightening the straps.

    This ran a full size too small in the cup for me, but the band seemed true to size. I had major top spillage and didn't keep it.

    The open cup shape works well for me (full on top) and I really like the colors, but I've come to realize I just can't deal with a tall gore on a bra.
