Women of all kinds are beautiful – the quirky, the clumsy, the shy and outgoing and all that are in between. Beauty isn’t considered easy because we place it inside a box and try to fit into it – well we want you to think outside of the box, look into the mirror and say wow!
At Bravissimo and Pepperberry we think that whatever size or shape body you have, it’s important to embrace it and get down! The female body is something beautiful; we wish women would be proud of their bodies because we should all be thinking about building up our characters and having fun. That’s all – one big celebration of curves and boobs!
To support this, back in August, women’s magazine, InStyle held a reader event in association with Bravissimo. The event held at InStyle’s London’s HQ, was a ‘Body Confidence Style Clinic’ with fashion director Arabella Greenhill and our very own MD Jo Lee. During the evening, there was body confidence talk, a trend report for the season and expert styling advice was on hand – you could even have a hairdo and a mini manicure. Talk about pampering!
The very lovely Miquita Oliver was the guest speaker, and had a really uplifting and confidence boosting experience when she went into one of our stores the day before to be fitted. She discovered to her amazement, that she was wearing the wrong bra size – you will hear her talking about her experience in the video about the difference that it made. Miquita can finally run for a cab now if she’s running late!
At Bravissimo whether we are offering advice or working on a bra fitting we won’t tell you what you should do or which bra you should buy, but rather we’ll advise and recommend so that you can make your own decision about what makes you feel great – because at the end of the day, we want you to walk away feeling fabulous. We sure felt fabulous after our wonderful evening full of bubbly, boobs and buns (well cupcakes actually) and behind the event we want to shout out that the message is clear for us ladies to be proud of our bodies and boobs!
Watch our video from the event here… and see what Miquita has to say about her fitting experience. And if you think you are wearing the wrong bra size pop into one of our stores where our fitting staff can offer you individual fittings and advice. You can always call into your nearest store and book a 20 minute appointment. For any other information, ring our customer service team on 01926 459 859 – they are happy to help.
To all of the beautiful women out there with boobs, butts, hips and a waist, put on your gorgeous lingerie, put on your bikini – put it on and stay strong. Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the #amazingyou.

It will give you a sexy shape, but still offer you great support and comfort. It is available up to a K cup and comes with matching briefs or the Garbo Thong. This Basque will provide plenty of thrills for Halloween or any other special occasion.
Tips for Putting on a Basque
Basques can be a little tricky to get on, if you do not have help to hand, but if not we find that some ladies benefit from doing a few hooks up at the front first (or all if easier) and then gently and slowly twisting this around to ensure that the wiring is not pulled out of shape. You may need to alter your size slightly and adjust the cup size to get the best fit for both your boobs and your body, if this is too firm in the body section.
We hope you have enjoyed our spooky selection. Please leave your comments as we love to hear from you.
