SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS

It’s the beginning of August, and we are all looking forward to that much longed-for break. It maybe a wild week away with the girls in Ibiza, a family holiday on a Greek Island, a mini-break to Rome with your other half, or a camping holiday on the Cornish coast. Whatever your ideal holiday is, by the time it arrives, it doesn’t take us long to shake off the working week and forget our daily routine. Our daily routine can sometimes feel like Groundhog Day. When we do eventually get time off, wow, do we appreciate it. There is something about a holiday, we laugh more, we eat well and we sleep better. Sleep is essential for our well being, even if you haven’t been sleeping well or don’t get enough hours per night normally, you can catch up on those important ZZZs in a couple of nights. Then there are the lie-ins. You cannot beat a long, lazy, lie-in. Just knowing that you can drop off at night and won’t be rudely awakened by the shrill of your alarm is enough to make you sleep peacefully. That followed by the knowledge that you don’t have to be anywhere, well that’s just pure bliss!

So when you are thinking about that holiday or short break, don’t forget some lovely new nightwear to make you sleep even better. One very important aspect about Bravissimo nightwear is the integral bra support, as the integral bra will improve your quality of sleep, by providing great support and true comfort all night long.

SLEEP EASY

With Easter behind us and spring in the air, the nights not as chilly as they have been, now is a great time to overhaul your nightwear. Are you happy with your PJ drawer? Is it time to throw the old boyfriend’s T-shirt away, the nylon nightie that sticks to you when you are hot and those mismatched PJs that you have had since the year 2000?

Nightwear itself has had a bit of an overhaul it seems. Walk around any department store and you won’t see any traditional style pyjamas, retailers have realised that us women want more comfort for our money and definitely more style as sleep is too important to compromise on your nightwear. We all have different preferences when it comes to bedtime, some of us like to be covered up & cosy and for some of us less is more when we are tucked up. One thing us Bravissimo ladies all share, is the need for our boobs to be supported whilst we sleep, so you will find super comfortable integral support in every one of our tops or nightdresses. Here is a small selection of the gorgeous nightwear we have on offer.

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.

Geometric Print PJ Bottoms

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.

Dobby Spot Nightdress in white

Dobby Spot Nightdress in white

The end of a hectic week and the weekend to look forward to. However the weather’s miserable again! So why not take off for a night? How does a night in a country pub sound, or a city hotel? It doesn’t have to be far away, you could just head to your nearest village or city. Just hole yourself up with someone special, a good book and order room service. The next morning, what nicer feeling is there, then waking up in a huge bed with clean white sheets, followed by a hearty breakfast, then a walk in the countryside?

Often you can find a great deal if you are prepared to go last minute. Just search travel websites for late city break deals and see what comes up, you can sometimes grab a bit of luxury at a fraction of the price.

When packing your overnight case, don’t forget a nice nightie or pair or PJ’s. Often we neglect our nightwear until we have reached the hotel, we put on our partners’ pyjama bottoms and an old t-shirt and we find ourselves wishing we had bothered. Bravissimo have some gorgeous nightwear that you would be proud to be seen in, should the fire alarm goes off in the wee small hours.

The Dobby Spot Nightdress is new from Bravissimo. It’s a really pretty nightdress with the lovely bow detail and scalloped edge. It is made from pure cotton; to keep you cool in the summer months. It has fully adjustable shoulder straps and the integral bra is wire free, to keep you comfortable in bed.

If you prefer separates, you can buy the Dobby Spot PJ Cami by Bravissimo and matching Dobby Spot PJ Pants by Bravissimo, the pants are cropped, with side pockets and a tie waist. If you’ve been looking for some great, comfortable, stylish pyjamas, then the Sage Floral Trim Cami Top by Bravissimo and Sage Floral Trim PJ Bottoms by Bravissimo will fit the bill. The cami is wire free with integral wire and bra support. It comes in the soft sage colour, with a contrasting floral trim. The fabric is extra soft on the cami and matching bottoms, so ensures you have a great night’s sleep.

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!

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!
