We hope that at last Summer might be on the way, with the clocks going forward last week it’s got us all thinking about updating our wardrobes ready for the summer season.
Today we give you a peek of some of our summer styles that are launching today – with more to launch at the end of April.

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.

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.

Monday’s set is the cherry red Belle Bra by Fantasie, start the week off with this delicious silky and embroidered bra. It is a classic shape, with a full cup so offers more coverage and is underwired.

HEAD FOR THE SUN

Morocco Mix Triangle Bikini Top by Free

Morocco Mix Triangle Bikini Top by Free

Where are the long warm summer days and the balmy summer evenings we dreamed of? Damn you British weather! It is enough to make a girl scour the web for last minute holiday deals in search of the sun.

If you haven’t yet been away or if you have a weekend away planned, (somewhere you can eat alfresco without getting drenched!) we can help you find some last minute swimwear bargains in our fantastic Bravissimo sale and also give you some top tips on getting your body buffed and beautiful, so you are happy and confident when you hit the beach.

A couple of days before you go away, book yourself in for a leg and bikini wax, this will give your skin time to heal before you have to start using sun protection or a tanning product. If you feel your skin is too pale and you want a hint of colour before your strip off, then try one of the moisturising tanning body lotions. These products build up colour gradually, they work differently to self tan, and the effect won’t be so dramatic. Because they are more subtle, you won’t be left with orange hands or ankles. Remember to buy one that is suited to your skin tone, they usually come in ‘fair to medium’ and ‘medium to dark’. You can also use this product whilst you’re away, post-shower as a moisturiser, and it will continue to enhance a natural tan.

Body oil is a holiday essential and it will keep your arms and legs wonderfully moisturised, nourished and smooth after a day on the beach (again, use it after a shower). Don’t forget a professional pedicure or manicure, or just get a friend to do it for you. When choosing a nail color, go for something vibrant and summery that will look great against a light tan; tangerine, coral, bright red or fuchsia are good choices, or you could choose something really on trend like turquoise.

Lastly don’t forget your hair, summer hair is actually very easy to look after, just run some conditioner through your hair before you head for the beach and choose an easy style like a ponytail or braid.

So now you are looking beach beautiful, take a look at our pick of the best sale bikinis on offer. The Morocco Mix Triangle Bikini Top by Free is a gorgeous ethnic inspired bikini, which comes in lilac and cream. The tie briefs are available in a polka dot lilac print with a lovely bead feature on the side ties. The bikini top is a wire-free triangle bikini. The Havanna Bikini Top by Free is a very stylish bikini, it is an underwired bandeau style top in a check print, available in blue. The top can be worn as a halterneck, or strapless if you want to tan without strap marks. And finally the Circus Bikini Top by Freya is a really fun bikini, with its pop art multi-coloured print. It is a soft triangle top with light padding and has two options for bikini bottoms, bikini briefs in blue with a white spot print or a fold brief which are a contrast of white spot print and multi-coloured print.

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.
