Top of the tops

Add some colour to your wardrobe with a brightly coloured top

Add some colour to your wardrobe with a brightly coloured top

 We know that great fitting tops can be the hardest thing for a Bravissimo girl to find, so we’ve rounded up our favourite styles from the new collection that offer a fabulous fit and fashion forward edge. A couple of new tops can also be just enough to refresh your wardrobe create different looks to wear with your favourite jeans, trousers and skirts.

 Stripey Long Sleeve Tee – horizontal stripes can be tricky to pull off especially when big boobs are involved in the equation. However, our stripey tee has been cut to flatter your boobs and fit comfortably every where else too! We love the button detailing and subtle tie-dye effect of this top and think it’ll look great with jeans or casual trousers and will make a handy top for layering whilst the weather remains persistently cool.

 Lace shoulder topthis top is perfect for the casual smart look with its lace shoulder detailing and jersey material body. The dusky pink colour will suit just about everyone and works with this season’s natural/neutral colour palette. Thanks to the gorgeous lace detailing on this top, you can easily dress it up with a pair of smart trousers or a skirt or keep it casual with a denim skirt or jeans.

 Spotty tee – there’s nothing like a little polka dot to put a smile on your face. This fabulous red polka dot top is cut with a gathered ruching detail around the bust for a great fit and is finished off with button detailing. Plus, the slight puffball sleeves add an extra dollop of cuteness!

 Jersey Scoop Neck Tee – this fabulously red jersey top is perfect for in between season dressing when the weather is too cool for exposed skin but you still need a little room to breathe. This top has bell sleeves, an empire line, ruching around the neck and tie detailing all to create a flattering and comfortable fit.

Sumptuous satin

Satin PJ Bottoms & Cami Top

Satin PJ Bottoms & Cami Top

Satin is soft, silky and sexy, whether it’s an evening dress or a PJ set, satin adds that extra bit of sass! Take our satin pyjamas for example, the cami top provides the same integral support that all our nightwear does. It’s also comfortable to wear and will keep your boobs in place all night long. What makes this particular set stand apart from the rest however is its luxurious satin fabric. This season’s gorgeous new satin range comes in a choice of cami top, PJ bottoms and night dress in stunning petrol blue. The night dress also has integral support to ensure a sound night’s sleep plus it comes in an extra exciting colourway; raspberry. Why not add some satin nightwear to your Christmas wish list? Or simply treat yourself! As well as adding glamour to your nightwear, satin can up the glam ante when it comes to evening wear too and nothing beats a sexy satin dress for the party season. Our Teal Tulip Dress with its deep v-neck and tie waist detailing will flatter your figure in all the right places. Plus the rich colour will set you apart from the sea of little black dresses this season. Check out the Satin Bow Dress, Beautiful Bandeau Dress and the Satin Ballerina Dress too if you like what you see in the Teal style! If dresses aren’t your thing or you’d like an outfit with a difference over the party season then why not try our Tuxedo Trousers. There’s no doubt that trousers are a huge trend this season so instead of the standard cocktail dress, give trousers a go for a change. They can look just as sexy and feminine as a skirt or a dress and channel the tailored look perfectly. Our Tuxedo trousers are a classic straight cut with satin trim on the pockets to add that important evening touch. Wear with a tailored top such as the Asymmetric Evening Top in bold red to make a statement or a simple cami and Sensational Sequin Shrug for added glamour clout! If you like your lingerie to have a soft satin feel we have a selection of satin bras that will make you feel extra sexy and super supported. Our favourite of the moment is the new Thrill Me bra by Curvy Kate the padded balconette style gives great shape plus, choose between frilled shorts with the option to attach suspenders or thong with frill sides perfect for the thrill seeker in you! Also look out for the Polka Dot bra by Masquerade, the Belle bra by Fantasie and the Zara bra by Panache if you like the satin touch.

Big bras without the big price tag

Harmony Bra, available up to 40KK

Harmony Bra, available up to 40KK

If you have been blessed with big boobs, it seems unfair that in some places you can be charged more for a bra that fits. We understand that there is inevitably more fabric in a bigger bra, but clothes prices aren’t based on size so why should bra prices be?

At Bravissimo you get great service as well as value for your money, whether you’re a size 28D or a 40KK everyone gets the same expert bra fitting and same great lingerie at an affordable price. We also have an ever increasing range of clothing cut to fit and flatter bigger boobs, supporting nightwear, swimwear and sports bras with a shock absorber system so that you will be fully supported whatever activity you do! Our everyday bras have given our customers the comfort and support they need to make their day more enjoyable. We also have a range of soft cup and nursing bras to take care of your boobs when they’re under the most stress and strain. Having boobs is part of being a woman, having big boobs is part of being a Bravissimo woman. But whatever your size you should look after your boobs, give them the support they need and treat them every now and again to a beautiful new bra!
