Have a great night’s sleep

Soft and supportive nightwear We don’t just sell bras you know, at Bravissimo we understand that it’s the little things that count, especially when big boobs are concerned. A simple solution such as a soft integral bra in your nightwear top can turn an awkward night into an amazing one. Some women like to feel that their boobs are being just as well supported at night as they are during the day, but wearing at bra at night can be uncomfortable and disturb your beauty sleep with wires, straps and clasp fastenings that dig in and prevent you from sleeping.

 Our nightwear avoids these sleep depriving annoyances by having an integral bra, soft underband and shaped foam cups designed to keep your boobs in place but with a soft touch to allow for movement whilst you sleep. This support is built into all of our nightwear tops and night dresses for a sound night’s sleep. There are some great styles to choose from; strappy tops or long sleeved tops; dressing gowns, nighties and more luxurious satin co-ordinates. So whatever your style you can find great fitting nightwear that dreams were made of!

 We know how much you love the Racer Back PJ Top so we’ve introduced a new colour for spring; powder blue. We also have a new PJ set in softest sage with a floral trim that is bang on trend for the new season. There is a matching nightie to go with this set in a delicate jersey fabric to ensure a comfortable, yet stylish, night’s sleep. If florals aren’t your thing, you might like our new Check PJ Bottoms, wear them long or roll them up and wear them cropped by securing with the button fastening. Take a look at the fab new Denim Blue PJ Cami Top same great fit, gorgeous new colour for spring.

Sweet dreams!

Fashion Week Highlights Part 4: Paris

Build layers of black starting with your favourite dress, top or jeans

 The final fashion week was held in Paris and boy did they pack a lot in! The fashion capital had stunning collections which featured soft tailoring, maxi skirts and dresses, print-a-plenty, lace, colour blocking and tartan to name but a few trends on the catwalk of a city that is famous for its style.

 In Paris, as in the other cities, all over black was a strong trend. However, Paris being Paris there had to be twist and that came in the form of top-to-toe white outfits to contradict the black seen throughout the A/W 2011 catwalks elsewhere. White is the norm for summer collections but practically unheard of for winter ones as we don’t know anyone who can wear white in winter without it quickly turning grey. The Bravissimo office included; we’re much more likely to try the all over black trend, it will probably also involve less washing! The key to getting this trend right is to contrast textures; woolly cardigans, fury jumpers, silk tops, denim and leather can all be combined to create a dark and interesting look with a bit of a rock chick edge. Try layering your favourite black dress with a black textured cardigan and black leather jacket or coat.

 From Paris Fashion Week we have learned that we will be getting more wear out of our maxi skirts and maxi dresses than we first thought, which is a bonus, whatever we wear it should be black, harsh edges are out, soft feminine tailoring is in and that we will be able to get at least one more season out of our tartan pieces. We will still however always wonder how on earth Parisienne ladies look so chic. How do they do it?!

Fashion Week Highlights Part 3: Milan

Polka dots; a fashion staple since the 50's

 Milan had a ladylike feel with country looks made up with tweeds, furs and silk heads scarves which created a demure and sophisticated look. We think we’d potentially adopt some stylish tweed and maybe even a silk scarf but we’ll wear it around our necks as opposed to around our heads to keep the look modern. Our Herringbone Tweed dress is just what the fashion doctor ordered and will benefit your wallet as well as your wardrobe as it’s now in the sale at £17.50!!!

 It’s great to see more wearable clothes on the catwalk and outfits that we can actually picture ourselves wearing. The 1950’s has influenced our way of dressing for many years so it’s good to see flattering 50’s A-line skirts and feminine styles still going strong. Our 1950’s wrap dress hits two trends in one and will keep you ahead of the game in the fashion stakes with its fabulous bell shape and layered black chiffon material.

 From the classy to the fun, Milan had it all, as a stark contrast to rural ladylike chic there was the fun young urban fur wearer. We’re talking bright blue fur adorned sleeves, all over fur dresses and trim detailing. On the catwalk the look was a little too Cookie Monster for our liking but in more neutral colours and less obvious places, we think we could wrapping up in fur of the faux variety more than ever next season.  

  Polka dots were also present on the run way with a vintage feel to them. Think a 1950’s A-line skirt worn with a cute polka dot top to get this look right. Our fabulous polka dot top will look great worn with an A-line or pencil skirt and also looks fab with jeans and more casual outfits. Team this top with navy for a cool spring look and get bit of red, white and blue into your wardrobe.

Fashion Week Highlights part 1: New York

One of the most versatile pieces for your spring wardorbe, a blazer

To make things simple, we’ve put together a review of the fashion weeks of London, Paris, New York and Milan. Not that we’re being lazy but to focus on the key trends that might actually make it into your wardrobe.

Contradiction was key at the latest New York Fashion Week from slick tailored suits and ladylike dresses and skirts with super neat lines and figure hugging silhouettes to the relaxed sports wear looks at the opposite end of the spectrum. Both were however ultra glamorous which tells us that whether you’re wearing jogging bottoms or a two piece suit, it had better be glammed up with heels accessories and a full face of make-up. Tailored pieces don’t have to be limited to the office however; simply through a blazer over your favourite top and jeans for a casual smart look or mix it up and wear a grey jacket over black trousers or vice versa for a quirkier look. Colour blocking is a key trend for this season so why not update your working wardrobe and add a statement coloured top to your contrasting suit pieces for extra style points. Our grey blazer has been designed especially with Bravissimo girls in mind and will tie in perfectly with black trousers or a skirt thanks to its black trim detailing. Alternatively you could give a casual look a modern twist by combining a denim blazer over casual chino trousers. We think our stone coloured chinos will look great with a blue denim blazer for a quirky spin on the tailored look.
