Spots are a very wearable trend and do a good job of injecting some fun into everyday fashion. They are easy to accessorise too, if you opt for a shirt or blouse with a printed spot, then plain trousers, jeans or a pencil skirt will look great. If you choose a spotty dress, then you have lots of options, you could choose a fitted cardigan, in a vibrant colour and match with tan boots and tan bag. Or you could wear with a blazer in denim, a suit jacket, or a belted Mac. A spotty dress is easy to dress up or down, so can be worn day or night.
If you like spots but are not too sure about throwing yourself into the trend wholeheartedly, then you could try wearing it as an accent, in the form or a scarf – try the Spotty Scarf by Pepperberry.
Or if you are still not convinced, Bravissimo have some fabulous new dotty lingerie that is utterly desirable. Check out the gorgeous Crystal Bra by Freya, if you are a fan of the deco bra, you are going to love this one, it creates amazing uplift and cleavage and will give you an enviable shape. It is available in teal, with white spot. The matching shorts are really lovely, a must if you are going to buy this bra.
Also new and exclusive from Bravissimo, is the Dotty Spotty Bra by Bravissimo, this bra is so gorgeous, it must be shown off. It has a real 50’s starlet look and is finished with the cute bow detail in the centre. It is available in two colourways, aqua/red and black/café (which is our new colour for autumn). This bra is slightly fuller than a normal balconette, but it is still a very supportive fit. This bra is available to buy with briefs or shorts, for that added cute factor, the shorts have a cheeky little pocket on the back.

Not many people could complete a challenge like that, not many of us wouldn’t want to. But it does show you, David Walliams is just a very strong swimmer, not an Olympic swimmer. Swimming is a great all round exercise and no, it’s not a good idea to take a dip in a fast flowing river, but taking up swimming in your local pool is a great idea if you want to get in shape. It’s kinder to your body, your boobs are supported by the water, so the bounce that you get when you take part in aerobic exercise is eliminated before you even start. Swimming will boost your metabolism, it firms all of your muscle groups and burns calories. And the best bit? It doesn’t put any stress on your joints as it creates weightlessness, so you can swim happily everyday without injury. Swimming can also help keep you young, research shows regular swimmers are biologically up to 20 years younger than their actual age.
So if you need any more reasons to take it up, how about Bravissimo’s brand new styles of swimwear that are in our stores now. They are so gorgeous, you will be happy parading up and down at your local poolside. The Paradise Swimsuit by Faubourg in red palm is a stunning swimsuit, the tropical print is based on the Kashmir Swimsuit from last autumn. It is underwired and very flattering with a sexy plunging neckline, it has adjustable ties at the neck, this swimsuit is exclusive to Bravissimo.
The Monroe Halter Swimsuit by Panache will look fabulous in the pool or at the beach, it has a fifties look and is on trend with its lovely polka dot print and is available in chocolate/cream. This swimsuit is super flattering and is underwired and will flatter your shape also giving great support. It has a cream panel, which sits under the bust creating a nipped in waist.
The Premier Ultimate Swimsuit by Speedo is a great sports swimsuit if you are a serious swimmer, it has a supportive built-in bra and is a very flattering fit. The fabric used is chlorine resistant and is very comfortable. We have received wonderful reviews on this swimsuit, it is available to buy in, aqua/black, black/pink and ink/pop pink.
Come on in girls, the water’s lovely.

The fashion industry had a very hard task this week. They had to carry on with the catwalk shows of New York Fashion Week and the business of fashion – which can seem frivolous at the best of times – whilst the city is remembering 9/11 and marking the 10 year anniversary of those lost. A very sad day, but the shows went on.
Victoria Beckham’s was one of the shows that took place, she has had an extra busy time of late, only just having had baby Harper, who accompanied her (of course) but she still managed to produce an accomplished collection for spring/summer 2012. Short shift dresses featured and body con fitted dresses that finish mid calf with cut away vest tops, racer backs and exposed zips. She showed parkers and voluminous kimono jackets in heavy silk satins. The collection is simple, chic with more than a look of sportswear about it.
Alexander Wang’s spring/summer collection also was inspired by sportswear, although he took his inspiration from tougher sports like Motorcross. Wang used high shine, waterproof fabrics, and leather. He also showcased the exposed zip and used chevron and monochrome prints. Peter Som’s catwalk show featured 1960s inspired tiny shorts, mini dresses and short shirt dresses. All in neons and acids brights, like citrus yellow, turquoise and bright corals. We also saw him use clashing sixties prints.
So what does all this mean in terms of lingerie for next spring/summer? Well, we can expect to be a bit more adventurous with colour, we will be seeing more neon brights and electric colours like our Melody Full Cup Bra by Panache in electric blue. We may see more large, sixties inspired floral prints, moving away from the small ditsy print of this year. There will definitely be a move towards a sportier look for bras. We are not talking about sports bras here, there will be a different sportier shape, but using gorgeous vibrant colours and prints in silky fabrics to keep that feminine look.

They are all available online, or if you prefer personal service in the form of a free bra fitting, then visit a store near you and speak to one of our experts. What better way to chase away those dark clouds, than browsing our new collection?
The Boudoir Beau Bra by Bravissimo is a very popular style with our Bravissimo ladies, as it is very comfortable, gives incredible shape and is very sexy. The combination of the opaque cup and see through lace is what gives this bra oodles of sex appeal and it is finished of with a frilly lace bow. It is an underwired balconette and available in G-K cup sizes, and there is additional lining for further support. This set now comes in the new rich shade of red/graphite, which is perfect for those cosy autumn nights. The matching thong and shorts are equally stunning, you won’t be able to choose between them.
The Nieve Bra by Freya is an absolutely gorgeous set, and totally on trend. It is available in this lovely ditsy floral print, in sapphire, with black lace trim. It has a 1940s inspired look, which translates through to the fuller cup. This bra has been designed using the same shape as the Lucy Bra from earlier in the year. Again, it is available with a matching thong or super cute shorts.
We have mentioned the wonderful Bubbles Bra by Bravissimo previously, as it is an old Bravissimo favourite, this bra continues to receive great reviews as it is soft, really comfortable and creates a lovely rounded shape and offers great support. It now comes in this gorgeously rich and vibrant colourway of black/boysenberry. And don’t forget the lovely comfortable shorts and thong, that are available to buy with this bra. This is a really contemporary and stylish set and will be a must for your lingerie drawer this autumn.

The Platinum Shift Dress, is an absolutely sensational dress and is following the bodycon trend that originated from the designer Herve Leger, who has been designing these dresses since the eighties. Later the trend was reinvented by Victoria Beckham in her first collection. This dress by Pepperberry is very flattering and will hug your curves, it is structured, which is always a better option for bigger boobs. The dress is fully lined in contrasting purple and it is available in platinum satin. It has capped sleeves and an aubergine skinny belt that is detachable. For a dramatic look you could accessorise it with purple heels, clutch bag and wrap.
The Rose Print Prom Dress, is a cutie of a dress, it takes its inspiration from the 1950s. The bodice of the dress is in jewel-like purple and the skirt is a lovely rose print with a net underskirt for that great fifties look. The waist is defined by a large purple bow, which is reversible and there are hidden tabs under the straps to keep your bra in place too. You could accessorise with black satin heels, a short satin tuxedo bolero, and a teal clutch.
There are plenty more utterly gorgeous, sexy and chic dresses in our NEW IN section online or available in our stores. So whatever your posh event this bank holiday weekend, don’t miss out, and switch on the glamour with Pepperberry.

So when you go on your next shopping trip, make a visit to Bravissimo a top priority, it will cut out a lot of unnecessary leg work. For those of you that don’t know, Pepperberry is a range of clothes designed especially for us, taking into consideration all of the common problems that us ladies encounter when buying clothes. You will be able to say goodbye to stretched fabric, buttons straining and gaping, tops riding up and ending up too short in the body. Our clothes are designed in standard sizes, but the clever bit is, you can buy them in Curvy, Really Curvy and Super Curvy, so there is a size to fit everyone. As we know all too well, that even if you have the same bra size as your best friend, your boobs are different shapes, so a Really Curvy may fit you and your friend may be a Super Curvy.
For a preview of what we have to offer in our autumn range from Pepperberry, have a look at some gorgeous new tops we have selected for you.
The Floral Twist Front Blouse is a pretty, casual top, it has a deep V neckline that will divide your boobs beautifully, and a V- neck will also give the impression of lengthening your torso. This top has a twisted detail at the front, which is very flattering and the print is a cute ditsy floral.
The Jersey Chiffon Trim Top, is not too low-cut but still incredibly sexy, (think less is more with this top) It has a slight sheen which makes it a perfect going out top, it is made of jersey and has a gorgeous ruching detail and chiffon trim around the neckline, and it is available in black.
The Ruched Jersey Top is pretty similar to the top above, but a more daywear option, it is available in grey marl, which is great for this autumn/winter, it is perfect for you sporty girls, but is still on trend. It has long sleeves and a panel of ruching at the front and is very roomy and super comfortable for your boobs.
