Superstar Bras

Since Bravissimo hit the high streets, there have been plenty of our bras that consistently receive fantastic reviews from fans and we feel they are worth shouting about, as they seem to have made such a difference to our ladies’ lives.

These bras stand out not only because they give amazing shape and make clothes look fantastic, but also because they are still comfortable and supportive which we all know is THE winning combination.

The Alana Bra in Denim

The Alana Bra in Denim


One of our superstar bras is the best selling Alana Bra by Bravissimo. This bra has been used by the one and only Gok Wan at one of his recent roadshows and we know how he feels about finding the right bra, before you even move on to the outfit! Our in-store Bravissimo fitters love this bra and probably use it the most during fittings because of the gorgeous shape it creates, plus the super fit and support. For an everyday bra it is pretty and is available in so many colours you will be spoilt for choice. The Alana, is an underwired balconette and in sizes DD-G cups it has a 2 hook fastening and in GG-L, 3 hooks. A selection of the positive comments about The Alana, have included, “The fit is true to size”, “It creates the best shape”, “Highly recommended for everyday wear”, and “Is very, very comfortable”“.
Deco Bra by Freya in Graphite

Deco Bra by Freya in Graphite


Another one of our amazing performers is the Deco Bra by Freya, because we know how much our Bravissimo ladies rave about this bra. This gorgeous bra is now newly available in graphite, with a pretty mother of pearl button detail, this is a perfect buy for autumn. It is a moulded plunge, which is perfect for close fitting tops. It also creates fantastic cleavage, so when you want to go for a sexier look with a lower cut top, maybe for an evening out, the Deco would be a great choice. This is some of the great feedback we have received about the Deco bra, “The Deco is absolutely the best moulded bra there is”, “I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find it”, “It’s true to size, supportive and so comfortable!”, and “Fabulous fit-great cleavage”.

What more can we say, check out more of our bestsellers online or in-store.

The end of summer sale

Summer is coming to an end and we have been dismayed how dark it’s getting much earlier in the evening! We are still seeing some warm days, however as soon as the sun goes behind a cloud, you can feel autumn in the air. The end of the summer also means the end of Bravissimo’s summer sale. The good news is that now the best bargains are up for grabs, there is some fabulous lingerie, nightwear and swimwear on offer. So if you are savvy, you could have your swimwear sorted for next summer, new nightwear bought in preparation for the colder nights and stunning lingerie purchased as a treat for yourself or as a Christmas gift for a friend (I know, I know, we mentioned the C word).

Paige Bra by Miss Mandalay

Paige Bra by Miss Mandalay


The Paige Bra by Miss Mandalay is a gorgeous bra in fantastic hot pink. It is sexy, fun and flirty and would be suitable to spice up any evening. It is half sheer on the cup, so that gives it lots of sex appeal and it is contrasted with a bright yellow lace trim. This bra is an underwired balconette, with a slightly fuller cup, which offers a bit more support. It is available to buy with matching briefs or the utterly cute frilly thong.

The Magic Triangle Bikini Top by Freya is a stunning triangle bikini, it is black, with a metallic printed stripe in silver and white. It is based on the popular ‘Vodkatini’ design and is wire free, lightly padded and creates wonderful cleavage and great shape. This is such a classic bikini, it will never date and you will feel confident that it will always look great.

Lounge Hoodie by Bravissimo

So the nights are drawing in and it is getting chillier, it is really important that we feel comfortable and warm when relaxing in the evening and in bed. The Check PJ Bottoms by Bravissimo and Lounge Hoodie by Bravissimo, are just the thing to see you through autumn and winter. The pyjama bottoms are made from cotton, so will keep you warm, without making you too hot in bed and they can also be rolled and buttoned up. The hoodie is wonderfully soft, it has a deep-V and front pockets and is available in French navy. A perfect top for cosying up in front of the TV.

So get these great items before they go and don’t miss out on much more fantastic lingerie, swimwear and nightwear in the end of season sale.

A Slice Of Retail Therapy

Elodie Bra by Fantasie

Elodie Bra by Fantasie

Well hurrah! The weekend is here, we hope you have had a well deserved lie in this morning. There is nowhere you have to be, there is no alarm tring-a-linging in your ear, no traffic noise, no chattering kids, just peace and quiet (hopefully!). So while you contemplate your day ahead, whilst reading this blog and enjoying your morning cuppa, here are some ideas of how to spend the rest of your day.

We suggest a bit of retail therapy with a good friend. Why not go and check out the new autumn collections on the high street? A new frock could be on the cards or a couple of going out tops or maybe a fantastic new pair of boots. If you ladies haven’t made too much of a dent in your purse by lunchtime, head to a restaurant and treat yourselves to a delicious lunch, then after a cheeky glass of something sparkly, and you will be ready to face the shops again. Don’t forget to visit Bravissimo and take a look at our new lingerie styles for autumn.

More highlights from the autumn range, firstly the new Elodie Bra by Fantasie. This is a really pretty, feminine, but still sexy bra, it has side seams that pull you in and push you forward, creating a gorgeous rounded shape. The front has a higher centre and it has a fuller cup, so still offers fantastic support for your boobs, and in sexy black, this is a perfect bra for the weekend.

The Poppy Bra by Cleo in charcoal is just gorgeous. It is really on trend with the lovely poppy print and in the new rich & warm colourway of charcoal, coral and orange, and it’s certain to be a real favourite this autumn. It is a half cup, so can be worn with lower necklines and is lightly padded giving wonderful shape. It comes with matching briefs, or if you prefer, a thong.

Laden with your bags, including your brand new buys from Bravissimo. Why not take the weight off your feet and enjoy large cappuccinos and a slice of something sweet, (to share of course). A perfect way to end the day. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Wedding belles

Evie Bridal Basque by Panache in ivory

Evie Bridal Basque by Panache in ivory

The summer wedding season is in full swing. Marquees are being erected, cheesy DJs, jazz bands and string quartets are being booked, vibrant blooms are being tied and summer puddings are being prepared. Wedding dresses are strapless, full-skirted with acres of taffeta or straight and sleek in vintage lace. Finding the perfect wedding dress should be a fantastic experience for every bride, the journey to find THE ONE is as important as the end result. It doesn’t matter if your dress cost half of your total budget, or was handed down from your granny, or is from a high street collection, because when you try on your dream dress for the first time, nothing feels quite as special as that moment (apart from the second time you get to wear it on your big day!).

When choosing a wedding dress style, the same rules apply as you would adopt when choosing your normal everyday outfits. Sweetheart, deep-Vs and scoop necklines are best, full-skirted dresses or fluted bottoms are great to balance out the figure of a curvy girl. If you are a curvy bride approaching your wedding day or you are close to the curvy bride, you are also going to need advice on underwear. The right lingerie can make a big difference to your day, it is important for the look of the dress, that you have the right bra too. You will need to be comfortable all day long, and it is a very long day indeed. Our advice would be to come into one of our Bravissimo stores and ask for some free fitting advice, nothing can compare to one to one advice with our trained experts. Meanwhile, why not browse some of our elegant bridal styles below.

The Tiffany Basque by Masquerade, is a stunning basque, it is really silky to touch, it has lightly padded cups and a boned bodice, offering great structure, fit and shape. It can be worn with or without straps and is available in ivory, for under your wedding dress, but also black, which you could take on your honeymoon.

The Evie Bridal Basque by Panache, is so pretty and sophisticated, it comes in ivory with delicate lace detailing. It is structured and creates the perfect, flattering silhouette and will enhance any wedding dress you happen to choose. It has multi-way straps for a low backed dress and can be worn strapless. It also has matching suspenders to add that extra special something.

Remember, your wedding day is the biggest day in your life – but you have to prepare and plan to ensure it is also the best!

Last of the summer sun?

Bali Bikini Top by Free

Bali Bikini Top by Free

It’s the last day of the bank holiday weekend, hopefully we are all waking up to blue skies and bright sunshine. It would be good if nobody is reading this, meaning everyone is out and about too busy enjoying themselves! In the hope that the sun will be shining for all of our Bravissimo ladies and keeping everything crossed that there might be an indian summer, we must just mention our new swimwear that is currently online and hitting our Bravissimo stores. Our new bikinis will look great next summer too, as both are in classic prints, which will be fashionable year after year, so either one will turn out to be a great investment for next year’s summer wardrobe.
The new Bali Bikini Top by Free is a gorgeous two piece, which manages to combine a sporty style with a bohemian print, and a little bit of sparkle. The print is a striking paisley with a mixture of white, aqua, purple and violet with some added silver embellishment. This bikini is an underwired halterneck balconette with ruching at the sides, which can be adjusted depending on how much coverage you require. To match the top you have a choice of bikini brief or bikini short, both equally fabulous.

Another great new bikini, is the Eden Bikini Top by Freya. This is a fantastically vibrant bikini, again it is in the balconette style with underwiring, creating those enviable curves and clevage combined with great fit and support, that makes Freya a long time favourite with Bravissimo customers. This bikini contrasts right on trend – florals with a cute polka dot print. The colour is paradise, which is a mixture of fuchsia, purple, emerald green, soft pink and white. It is available to buy with matching fold briefs or bikini shorts. Equally you could contrast it with some plain bikini pants, picking any of the vibrant colours from the top.This two-piece would look just as good on a white sandy paradise island, as it would grabbing those last summer rays in your back garden.

Enjoy those last few days of August whether you are hitting the beaches or not.

Daisy Chain bra by Bravissimo

So how is your week so far, anything exciting happened? A promotion at work?
A marriage proposal? It is of course Wednesday, so is anyone hoping to get lucky on the lottery?

However your week has started off, good or not so good, I hope you have made an effort with your lingerie. As us girls know, that no matter what is going on in our lives, looking good comes part and parcel with feeling good, and sometimes wearing fantastic matching lingerie can be that little lift that our confidence needs.

If you are a Bravissimo fan and keep your eyes glued to the website, you will have seen all our lovely new styles. So far this week we have selected a brand new sensational set for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so let us guide you through the rest of the week with some other gorgeous styles.

Thursday’s set is the Fern Bra by Panache, a great Thursday bra! This bra fits like a dream, it creates amazing shape, but you are still fully supported, it is an underwired balconette and it comes in plum with a red, purple and emerald print. It is available to buy with the gorgeous matching briefs and thong.

Friday’s set is the Daisy Chain Bra by Bravissimo in black. This bra is really sexy and cute too, with the contrast of spot mesh and black embroidered daisies, it is perfect for a romantic evening. Similar to the Alana bra in style, it gives the same shape but is lower at the front. This bra is also available in white and comes with super sexy briefs and shorts.

Part Three and the weekend to follow…

GARDEN PARTY

The floral trend has taken centre stage on the catwalk this spring/summer, closely followed by colour blocking and the polka dot. ‘Floral’ is reinvented year on year, and this summer we have seen the ditsy flower , the abstract splashy flower, and the classic vintage floral as inspired by Dolce and Gabbana’s collection. There has been a sea of flowers everywhere you look on the high street and they will be with us for some time yet. Autumn/Winter will see new big, bold and brave blooms paraded.

Lyla bra by Freya

Lyla bra by Freya

If you are not quite ready to say hello to the hollyhocks and welcome the wildflowers to your wardrobe, how about introducing something flamboyant and flowery to your lingerie drawer? New to Bravissimo is the Lyla bra by Freya in amethyst, and really is a beautiful bra. With the cups being mostly sheer, it creates a very sexy look, and the amethyst colour is contrasted well with the aqua embroidery. The style is an underwired balconette, the balconette is lower at the front, so this is a perfect choice for a lower neckline. There are matching briefs and shorts available to buy with this bra, they come in amethyst with a cute contrasting sheer and embroidery frill.

Poppy bra by Cleo

Poppy bra by Cleo

Also new to Bravissimo is the gorgeous Poppy bra by Cleo. This is an abstract print in cream and orange, it’s a half cup shape that is lightly padded and has a pretty orange lace trim. This bra is available as a set, with a matching thong or briefs. If you like keeping up with the latest trends, this is a very stylish set. It also provides great support and wonderful shape.

Bring the garden into your bedroom this autumn and invest in some beautiful floral printed lingerie by Bravissimo.
