If you are a friend of Bravissimo on Facebook, you will have noticed that the Bravissimo Super Fans’ event took place in London the other night. Some of our past Super Fans got together and swapped their experiences of Bravissimo and what being a Super Fan meant for them personally. I know we may have mentioned it before (once or twice), but finding the right bra really can change your life and these girls a testament to that.
One fan had her fitting over the phone, at first she wasn’t too confident, however the fitter was knowledgable and helpful and talked her through signs that she should be looking for when trying on a bra. The Bravissimo parcel arrived and as soon as she tried on her new bra, she had her eureka moment.
Some Fans had been so unhappy with their boobs that they had even considered surgery, only to find that the right bra eliminates backache, corrects posture, which in turn improves the figure, knocking a few pounds off and creating a new feeling of self confidence as a consequence. All that from a bra, can’t be bad eh!
Another Super Fan was looking for some lingerie for her wedding but was not keen on the prospect of searching the high street for something supportive but dull, until she stepped into a Bravissimo store and was shown the Hestia Basque and couldn’t believe how sexy it was, whilst still offering great support and lift.
One of our other Super Fans was introduced to Bravissimo by a friend, after she had been complaining that there was nothing out there for bigger boobed ladies apart from granny bras, she literally could not believe her eyes when she actually saw how much choice Bravissimo offered and in so many gorgeous colours and fabulous styles.
We would like to thank our wonderful Super Fans and all our Bravissimo ladies for continuing to support us and being so passionate about our brand. We hope more and more of you will continue to spread the word, so women can get the very best advice in the future. And for anyone reading this that suspects they are wearing the wrong size, remember there is tons of information on our Perfect Fit Guide on the Bravissimo website, or you can pop into one of our stores or telephone us for advice on 01926 459 859.

It’s Wimbledon fortnight and everyone is getting a bit overexcited. The All-England Club is awash with the world’s finest tennis players, the seats, stands and hills are packed full of British women cheering on their heroes, eating strawberries & cream, drinking champagne and generally having a great time. It is also the time of year, when your local park’s tennis courts are packed with hopefuls desperately trying to emulate Andy Murray or Laura Robson.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a tennis pro, then Bravissimo can recommend the Freya Active Underwired bra, we have been told by some of our Bravissimo ladies, that this is a great sports bra for high impact sports like tennis. The Freya Active will keep your boobs securely in place, fully supported, but still gives great shape and uplift and is super comfortable too. It comes in a great range of colours, including graphite/lime, red, nude, black and white. We have plenty of the black and white available, and keep checking our website, as the other colours will be back in stock soon. Enjoy the rest of Wimbledon ladies, we know we will.

If you are one of our Bravissimo ladies that will be heading down the gym, it is essential that you invest in a good, supportive, sports bra. We know the problems associated with wearing an unsupportive bra in our day to day life, but did you know that during exercise, your bigger boobs can bounce up to 14cm in a unsupported bra? As well as this being highly embarrassing for you – in front of your fellow gym goers – it’s also bad for your health. Exercising in the wrong bra can also cause breast pain and can result in permanent sagging. In short, finding the right sports bra can transform your workout, and turn you from a gym hater to a gym bunny.
Bravissimo have some great options, for a bra best suited to high intensity sports, with fantastic support, shape and no wire, try the D+ Max Sports Bra by Shock Absorber. Or for an underwire bra, choose the Active Underwired bra by Freya, this is a full cup with flexible underwiring, it is really supportive, comfortable and separates the boobs nicely creating a great shape. Its available in lots of colous, black,white, red, nude and graphite and lime which will be back in stock very soon.
So now you are all set, you will have to come up with another excuse to why you can’t hit the gym!

A recent tabloid feature claims that Britain’s busts are bigger than ever. Even the Queen’s underwear supplier has just brought out an N cup. Some of the ladies quoted in the article were clearly happy with their boobs and said they were part of their personality and wouldn’t change them for the world and the others really struggled to find correct fitting bras and clothes.
One thing is for sure though, as one of the ladies surveyed pointed out “A good-fitting bra can change your life” well, we couldn’t agree more. Bravissimo have estimated that 60 percent of ladies in a C cup should actually be in a D cup. We can’t stress how important it is to be regularly measured for a bra, remember boobs can fluctuate in size during the month.
Bravissimo offer lots of help and advice to get it right. Check out our ‘Perfect Fit Guide’ on our website. There are two fitting videos, ‘the full experience’ and the ‘quick quide’ for those Bravissimo girls who are short on time.
Take a look at our ‘Before and After gallery‘ with the lovely Kate, it’s amazing how wearing the right size can transform the way she looks, making her appear slimmer, making her boobs look perter. She has dropped a dress size as her boobs are higher up.
And there is even a ‘Which Bra Style‘ guide that shows you the correct style of bra to wear with different styles of tops.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to speak to a real person, then Bravissimo have customer services consultants on hand who are trained to offer you bra fitting advice over the phone, so if in any doubt just call 01926 459 859 they are more than happy to help.

You only have to look at pictures of women’s lingerie over the decades to realise how much effort us ladies put into what is worn underneath; the corsetry and infinite layers of the Victorian era, the glamorous silk slips and loose fitting styles of the 30s and the screen scarlet lingerie of the 50s. It makes us wonder what happened to all that effort; today we’re often so busy we’re lucky if we manage to put our knickers on the right way round or even notice if we don’t!
Underwear choice is more frequently made according to comfort and practicality rather than style or effect. However, every once in a while to make ourselves feel feminine and fabulous again, we’ll wear one of our favourite sets and remind ourselves what it feels like to be a woman. Not a mum, not a business woman, not housewife or an accountant but a red blooded woman in sensational lingerie. And although it might not be practical to dress like this everyday, we advise you to start paying more attention to what you wear underneath your clothes as it can make such a difference to your day.
Did you know that a properly fitting bra can make you look slimmer? Well, a bra that fits correctly will position your boobs where they should be and not allow them to fall too low as some badly fitting bras can. The lift of a properly fitting bra can help to define your waist and draw attention to the narrowest part of your body, the waist. A good bra can also make your boobs look fuller and perkier as well as giving plenty of support. Not quite a corset, but thanks to modern design and technology you can get a fabulous boob boosting effect without being tied up tighter than a boat in a storm. If you’d like to try a bra fitting by Bravissimo then click here to find your nearest store. Alternatively you can call our customer helpline where flocks of our gorgeous Bravissimo girls are waiting to help you and your boobs get the bra you deserve. Why not take a leaf out of the books of the glamorous women that have gone before us and make just as much effort in your underwear as you do in your outerwear?

As well as our ‘Sensational sets’ in pretty prints and gorgeous colours, we also have a range of great basic underwear because sometimes a girl just needs a simple bra that will go with everything! We also have a number of multi-way bras and strapless bras up to H cup so whatever you wear on top, you know you will be fully supported underneath.
The Evie bra has soft foam cups for comfort and can be worn as a full bra, alterneck, cross-back or strapless. This style is available in Ivory, black or nude you can match the right colour to your wardrobe. Top tip: choose a nude bra over a white bra when wearing a white top or dress, the nude bra will be invisible, whereas a white bra will show through.
The Porcelain bra is a multi-way bra too but has moulded cups for a seem free look and plunge shape making it ideal for low cut tops. This bra also comes in a balconette version which is a little less versatile but just as comfortable and works great under tee-shirts.
Another great bra for wearing underneath tee-shirts is the Deco bra, it also works well under low cut tops as it creates a smooth line and has a low centre front.
All of our basic bras have matching underwear too, most in brief or short and thong versions, which are great for everyday wear and when you just want to feel comfortable.
If you like a basic style bra but also like a little bit of luxury then try the Zara bra, it has a great push up plunge effect for added oomph, but comes in a simple design and luxurious satin fabric, oh and it’s multi-way too! What more could a girl need? You just have to decide which colour now, black, white or latte?
