Bravissimo Ariana Plunge Bra (LN536)

Sale USD $15.00

This bra has more depth near the gore than I need. The main fit issue for me is the gore is about 1.6" high. That's a plunge on most people, but not on me.

The band runs small. I love how the straps are close together in the back Many bra straps, as in my Ewa Michalaks, splay outward on my back when the bra is fastened on the loosest hooks. In that way, Ariana is a great fit.

Owner's review

The most remarkable feature about this bra is how close set the straps are in the back. Many bras, when I have them on and look at the back view, have straps that splay outward as they reach the band. The Ariana's straps go straight down and are wonderfully close together, even on the loosest hooks. It feels comfortable and secure.

Bravissimo bra bands run small. My 32F Ariana's stretched band length is about 29.5" and feels quite firm.

The second aesthetic feature I appreciate is how narrow the straps are, 0.6" wide. It gives a delicate appearance. It underscores the prettiness of the black lace that overlays most of ... the navy satin cups.

There is slightly too much room in the cups at the center gore. The cups gap slightly right above the center gore. This wouldn't show under clothes and is barely discernible without a top on. Gapping doesn't usually occur in this area because my breasts are extremely close set.

The real fit problem for me is the height of the center gore. I need it to be less than 1" whereas this is over an 1" high. I haven't worn this bra as a result.
