First up is the popular Satine in this sumptuous new Winterberry colour. This bra needs little introduction as it’s so well known for its fabulous fit and luxurious feel, but in case you need further persuasion, Anita (from Mount Pleasant, Australia) left us this review:
“5/5 Fabulous Bra! This bra is fabulous. It’s a great shape, good support, sexy and is comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this bra…I have 3 of them.”

September has arrived, and it’s looking promising. The nights are getting darker earlier, there is a crispness in the air early evening, however the days are much warmer with blue clear skies, so we are hopeful of a good couple of weeks. September signals a new season and a new start. We know that the autumn collections have been appearing in our shops for the last two months, but now we can consider what we are going to actually buy.
Now would be the perfect time to edit your lingerie drawer and wardrobe, as we know it’s tempting to just shove everything in, close it and ignore the mess. But it’s a great way to start the new season, organised and de-cluttered! When it comes to your lingerie drawer, take a look at the items that you actually wear and the bras or briefs that are ‘hanging around’, hoping that they will be worn again. You may have bras that are not the right size for you, bras that are faded and saggy, knickers that have grown in size over the years and have more holes than the usual three.
Bravissimo offer a recycling bra service, so you don’t need to add to landfill. Just pop into one of our stores and if you can’t see a bra bank, just ask, as they will have one in the store. Tommy’s, the charity that fund research into still birth and miscarriage, receive £1 for every 1 kg of bras recycled, and the bras are then re-used or recycled in developing countries.
For briefs, put them in a textiles bank provided by charities like Oxfam, The Salvation Army and Scope. You will find these at supermarkets or local council sites. Make sure your briefs are washed and dry before you put them in.
So now you have room in your drawer, you can start to think about some gorgeous new buys. Bravissimo’s brand new autumn collection is now online and in our stores (we are very excited about it, by the way).
We have some fabulous new florals in our new collection, like the Satine Floral Bra by Bravissimo. It is ultra luxurious with a slight fifties glamour look. It is available in mink floral, which is a perfect colourway for autumn, this is contrasted with black, satin ribbon trim on the cups and contrast black straps. We have designed this style around the ‘Satine’ so it offers the same fantastic fit and comfort and it is an underwired lightly padded plunge, which creates great cleavage and shape. It is available to buy with a thong or briefs.
For a bra that is cute, retro, with a bit of an edge, try the Ada Bra by Freya. This print is based on a tattoo with the classic rose image, but the print it also features, scrolls, hearts and dragonflies, so you wont lose this one in your drawer! It is an underwired balconette and the print is contrasted with gorgeous embroidery on the cup and finished off with black and white spotty bows and pink ribbon. The Ada will also give you great fit and comfort all day long and is available to buy with matching briefs or shorts.
If you are after pretty and ditsy, then the Piper Bra by Freya will tick all the boxes. This floral is small and perfectly formed, it is available in passionfruit, which is a lovely soft blush colour and is contrasted with black stretch lace on the cups and straps, it is also finished off with cute bows. This bra will offer great support and comfort. It is available to buy with briefs of shorts, which are designed with a stretch lace back, which give them a real cheeky feel.

We are so excited here at Bravissimo. Yes we do love the summer sale, but we cannot wait to feast our eyes on the new autumn collection and there are some utterly gorgeous, new lingerie sets for next season. It seems wrong when it has been so warm recently to concentrate on autumn, but our new sets are not a total departure from summer style. Who says that just because autumn is on its way that we have to ditch the colour and give up print? Our new collection features exciting prints, fresh and clean colours and bright and sexy mid-tones all highlighted by gorgeous styles.
The Princess Bra by Curvy Kate is very pretty, but also makes a bold statement as it comes in vibrant teal. It is an underwired balconette, this style has been a real favourite of our Bravissimo ladies, so we have brought it back! The combination of sheer dot and opaque dot gives this set a sexy edge and is finished off with pale pink bows. Even though it is a delicate looking bra, don’t be fooled, the Princess is still incredibly supportive. It is available to buy with matching thong or shorts.
The Darcy Bra by Cleo is fantastically stylish. It’s the cute heart print in navy, red and white and the contrast of the trims and details that make this set stand out. The cups are trimmed with red lace and the straps are made from textured navy ribbon. The cups are lightly padded, and come as a half-cup, this style is similar to the very popular ‘Juna’ and ‘Ellie’ bras and we are sure you will love it just as much. It is available to buy with deep briefs or a thong.
Wow…is a good description of the Hatty Bra by Freya. This bra creates amazing curves and cleavage. Our Bravissimo ladies may recognise this style, as it is based on the Deco shape. It is an underwired moulded plunge which gives this bra its incredible boob uplift. It is available in duck egg with a small pinstripe pattern. It is finished off with button detailing, which also appears on the matching shorts and briefs.
For more new styles of luscious lingerie like these, pop into your nearest store or check out bravissimo.com.

Nobody likes to see the back of summer, even if it hasn’t been the warmest on record. But one good thing about the coming of autumn is the new collections hitting the high street. If you are a Pepperberry fan, you will be jumping up and down with glee when you see the latest additions. We have a couple of great tops, a fabulous prom dress, a classic shirt (which we shall be raving about at a later date), but for now we will concentrate on four super, stylish, day dresses, all new for autumn.
The Ribbon Waist Dress is the ultimate statement dress. The colour is gorgeous raspberry that will look great on blondes, brunettes & redheads and will be flattering for pale or olive skin. This dress is sleeveless, with a tape trim waist panel and tapered pencil skirt. It has a split shoulder detail and exposed zip, which gives it a fashion edge. Team it with black patent heels and a black cardi, or grey suede knee high boots and grey tailored jacket. For an evening look, try brightly coloured accessories, like electric blue heels and tux jacket.
The Classic Shift Dress is a perfect LBD, it is such a classic shape that it will not date, so you will look great in this, year after year. This dress is a sleeveless shift, available in black, with a lovely waist detail and flattering pleats falling from the waist, creating a lovely tulip shape. The Classic Shift Dress, will be easy to accessorize and will look great with most items already in your wardrobe.
The Ponti Zip Back Dress available in black is a great work-wear dress. It is based on one of our best-selling dresses; it has a scoop neck, ¾ length sleeves and side pockets (that make a feature of the dropped waist). This dress is a very flattering shape and will become a wardrobe staple, if ever you are stuck with what to wear. Team it with a tailored jacket in any colour, black opaque tights & black heels and you have an instant, smart and stylish work look.
The Ponti Colour Block Dress is following the colour block trend that was so popular this spring/summer and is back for autumn/winter. It is available in grey/black, grey, with a black contrast scoop neckline, waist and wide border lining the hem. The Ponti Colour Block Dress is sleeveless and is a classic shift that gently hugs the curves; it is also the perfect length for knee-high boots. Wear with the Notch Neck Cardigan, for a great colour contrast.

The end of another weekend. Don’t you just hate that Sunday night feeling when you know that in a matter of hours, you will be getting up and it will still be dark. Braving the train or bus, ducking and diving, so you’re not standing under a fellow commuter’s armpit. Or maybe you will be stuck in long traffic jams on the M25, M6 or M4…Oh how we love the journey to work! But fear not, however stressful and busy your week ahead might be, here are some ideas to give you that lovely relaxing weekend feeling, every day of the week.
Plan your evening meals ahead, so you are not desperately searching the fridge for inspiration, you will also have more time in the evenings to relax. Keep it simple, a chunky soup, stir fry, or Spanish omelette are healthy, quick options. Try a TV free night. When we are sat in front of the box, before we know it is 11 pm and we wonder where the evening has gone, try listening to the radio or reading a book instead. Ring a friend you haven’t spoken to in ages, it’s usually cheaper in the evenings to chat from a landline. Have a soak, this is something we do at the weekend that we don’t do as much during the week. Light some candles, close your eyes, and relax. Have a night out, do something different to the norm, it will break up the week and make you feel re-energized. You could try a zumba dance class or support your local theatre and see a play. Have a couple of early nights, there is nothing like a full eight or nine hours to make you feel rested and it’s just as good as a weekend lie in. Check that you have good supportive pillows, some people swear by silk pillow covers too. Make sure the room is not too warm, and that it’s dark, just like babies we sleep better in a dark room.
To help you achieve that perfect night’s sleep, you will need something comfortable and soft to wear. Bravissimo know how important comfort is to our ladies, so our nightwear and loungewear features integral bras to support you while you sleep.
For ladies that are passionate about pyjamas we have the Geometric Print PJ Bottoms by Bravissimo. They are made from brush cotton so are really soft and cosy, they come in the very funky geometric print, with these jammys, you have the option of wearing with the PJ Cami Top by Bravissimo, which comes with wire-free integral bra support and is available in berry, or wear with the new Capped Sleeve Top by Bravissimo, available in black and also with built in wire-free integral bra support and bra back fastening. We are awaiting stock, but more sizes will be available during December and you can purchase now.
For you ladies that are nuts about nighties, the pretty Lace Nightdress by Bravissimo, has had great reviews. It also features a wire-free integral bra support with bra back fastening and is available in berry. You have said, “This one looks amazing on”, “Is the comfiest nightie you have worn” and “Fits perfectly and your boobs stay in place”.
Remember girls, we spend around one third of our lives asleep, so we may as well be comfy!

Q: What does a women love just as much as a killer pair of shoes?
A: A killer bag.
If you haven’t already laid your eyes on our fabulous bags by Pepperberry, then you must take a look! The party season is nearly here and that is closely followed by the holiday season and we have bags for every occasion.
If you are sneaking in a cheeky Christmas break, we have the ultimate in weekend style. The Oil Skin Weekend Bag is available in an on trend ethnic print, this is a weekend bag to show off. It is fully lined and it’s a good size, so will fit all your bits and pieces with extra room left over. There is a matching Oil Skin Satchel available, a great option for everyday use and a matching purse, the Oil Skin Purse, which is also fully lined.
For glitzy and glam Christmas nights out, a few sequins and a bit of satin are a must. Whether you are opting for a bodycon fitted cocktail dress, a fifties style prom dress, or full length ball gown, the essential partner to a knock out dress is a cute, sexy clutch bag. Pepperberry have a great choice for any colour and style of evening dress.
The Silver Diamante Clutch Bag, would look great with steel or a darker silver, or any jewel colour like ruby or jade, don’t forget to team it with silver heels too.
If you are wearing black heels with your evening dress, then black accessories are the way to go.
Pepperberry have two stylish clutches, the Black Clutch Bag in faux snakeskin is the simpler of the two, but would look great with a trouser suit or jumpsuit and a tux. Or you can go for the decorative clutch, the Sequin Envelope Clutch Bag is gorgeous clutch with a real vintage look, it is covered in black sequins, with gorgeous diamante clasp in the shape of a leaf. If you are looking for a statement clutch, then this would be perfect.
The coming party season means metallics are everywhere on the high street. We know there is lots of gold and silver out there, but pewter can also been seen in the shops and is harder to match up with accessories. However Pepperberry have the answer, the Pewter Clutch Bag, which is stylish and simple will be the perfect accompaniment to a pewter evening top or dress.

A recent survey in the UK has reported that a large proportion of women over the age of 55 feel ignored by the High Street when it comes to buying clothes. Almost three quarters of women can’t find age appropriate & fashionable clothes and they feel that the market is aimed at young people. Women are living longer and working later in life, so the High Street needs to sit up and take notice. A recent TV programme with retail guru Mary Portas highlighted this problem, it followed Mary on her journey from designing, to putting into production, a collection aimed at this forgotten generation.
If you are 55 or over just stick to a few basic rules and you won’t go wrong. Sleeves are preferable to sleeveless, gathers and clever ruching are great to hide lumps and bumps. Necklines should not be too low or should be worn with a cami or vest underneath and black is flattering, but break it up with colour.
We feel that our own clothing range, Pepperberry, as well as being ‘designed with your boobs in mind’, spans all ages and includes clothing that is both classic, stylish and fashionable, so don’t be surprised if you find your daughter ‘borrowing’ (which is code for stealing) your new Pepperberry purchases. Here are a few great pieces, that we feel can be worn by any age.
The Pleat Jersey Dress available in black, is a great easy to wear jersey dress, it has ¾ length sleeves, a mock cami which gives your boobs more room. It also has pleats at the front, coming from the waist, which is really flattering for the tummy area. Team it with a coloured scarf like the Pleat Scarf in pink, which breaks up the black and is softer near the face. Wear it with our Tartan Blazer (see below).
The Ruched Jersey Dress comes in black, it is a fabulous versatile dress that will flatter your shape and it has lots of details that are great figure fixers, like ruching running down the front, again, great for the tummy area, lovely pleating on the shoulder seams creating a lovely shape over the boobs. It has ¾ length sleeves, so even if you are petite, this dress will work for you.
The Tartan Blazer is a great buy whether your 20 or 60, it features one of the big trends this season, tartan, and this combined with the neat tailoring of the jacket, makes this jacket a must have. It is fully lined, single-breasted, with cute pockets, and lovely retro style buttons. The Tartan Blazer will definitely become a favourite this season.
The Lux Mac is timeless as well as ageless, it is a lovely classic long coat, that combines tailoring, glamour and style. It is available in black, in a satin fabric which makes it perfect to be worn unbelted with lux fabrics like satin or sequins for a night out, but equally can be worn during the day, belted for a stylish, sharp look.
We can’t not mention the Teal Drawcord Jersey Dress. The colour of this one is just gorgeous and would suit anyone, and it is very flattering for all sizes and so easy to wear. It features an adjustable drawcord under the bust and we have recently amended the neckline so it is not too low. A fabulous day-to-night dress.
