Whether you’re a runner, a walker, a swimmer, a skier or love to shake it at Zumba, why not invest in new sportswear to ensure you are fully supported while you’re exercising.

The benefits of a well fittings sports bra…

As there are no muscles in the breasts, if you exercise without the correct support, the ligaments can stretch meaning your boobs could have less uplift in the long run. So if you like to hit the gym hard, or prefer something a little gentler, it’s always a good idea to wear a properly fitted sports bra as this will help to protect your boobs, holding them more firmly to prevent bouncing. We offer both underwired and wire-free styles all of which are designed to offer maximum support whilst you exercise.

Guide to a good fitting sports bra…

  • The underband should be firm, lie flat to the skin and not ride up at the back.
  • Straps should be comfortable, stay on your shoulders and not dig in.
  • Your boobs should be fully encased within the cups, not spilling over at the top or the sides.
  • Finally JUMP! Test the bounce factor!

If you need any more advice or you’re looking for a sports bra for something specific, we’d love to help so please call us on 01926 459 859.

Meet the Fitter – Maire from Solihull!

Bravissimo fitter Maire from Solihull

Hi everyone and welcome to my first Bravissimo Blog post!!

I’m going to be appearing as a guest blogger every now and again so thought it might be nice to introduce myself.

Where I started….

Well firstly my name is Maire and I started working for Bravissimo about eight years ago  serving customers on the shop floor.  After working for a short time I realised how unique Bravissimo was, because it cared about its customers and wanted to go that extra mile for each and every one of them.  It was the company’s passion for service and making a difference which made me want to become a fitter.

Being a fitter…

It isn’t always an easy job.  You get customers who cry with joy because you’ve found them the perfect item, but then you get customers who cry because they are so self-conscious.  You face the challenges of finding the bra that will look great under one lady’s evening dress or fitting another lady in to a practical nursing bra that will look great under her clothes.  Each customer has a personal requirement and my job, as a fitter, is about making each and every customer happy and relaxed while tailoring my service to provide what they need.  I find being a fitter an extremely rewarding job and I love making a difference to how people feel about themselves.

What happens in a fitting…

Many women seem nervous about having a fitting and although it might seem daunting, you’ll walk out feeling great and uplifted (no pun intended).   Most women who come to us for the first time are wearing the wrong bra size and its great seeing the transformation from when a customer arrive to when they leave.  Check out the ‘fit guide’ on our website to give you a little insight to how a good bra fits and to show you that it isn’t scary.

We as fitters are there to make you feel comfortable so for example if you want us to leave the room while you try each bra on that’s what we will do – just let us know what you need to make you feel at ease. We’ll tell you what we recommend but at the end of the day you’ll decide what style, shape and size you feel most comfortable in

So…

Come and visit one of our stores and get a fitting from one of our fantastic fitting team.  I can’t recommend the experience enough; you’ll go out a new confident and uplifted woman!
