£5 off sportswear!

£5 off sportwear

We want to help you get active and beat those winter blues by offering

£5 off all full price sports bras and sports swimwear until 31st January*

Whether you’re a runner, a walker, a swimmer, a skier or love to shake it at Zumba, why not invest in new sportswear to ensure you are fully supported while you’re exercising.

The benefits of a well fittings sports bra…

As there are no muscles in the breasts, if you exercise without the correct support, the ligaments can stretch meaning your boobs could have less uplift in the long run. So if you like to hit the gym hard, or prefer something a little gentler, it’s always a good idea to wear a properly fitted sports bra as this will help to protect your boobs, holding them more firmly to prevent bouncing. We offer both underwired and wire-free styles all of which are designed to offer maximum support whilst you exercise.

Guide to a good fitting sports bra…

  • The underband should be firm, lie flat to the skin and not ride up at the back.
  • Straps should be comfortable, stay on your shoulders and not dig in.
  • Your boobs should be fully encased within the cups, not spilling over at the top or the sides.
  • Finally JUMP! Test the bounce factor!

If you need any more advice or you’re looking for a sports bra for something specific, we’d love to help so please call us on 01926 459 859.

MAKE A SPLASH this summer

Not long to the Oympics now. If you have tickets you may have finalised your travel and accommodation plans and are probably already getting quite excited about this once in a lifetime event. London will be a very different place to live and work, as everybody will be caught up in Olympic fever.

To try to get us all in the mood for a summer of sport, different companies are running incentives and British Gas is one of those companies. They are offering everyone free swimming, regardless of whether they’re a British Gas customer or not. Find the offer at www.britishgasswimming.co.uk then all you have to do is:

    Find a pool near you
    Choose your offer
    Enter your details
    Confirm your swim

You will be eligible for up to two or three free swims per voucher, depending on which pool you choose. You can also take the kids too, as the offer allows two children per voucher. There are also plenty of other offers to choose from like:

    Free Aqua Tots – one adult or carer and one child for two free sessions
    Free Aqua Aerobics – one adult for two free sessions
    Free Taster Lesson – one adult or one child one free session (which is good if you want to regain your confidence in the water)

This offer expires on the 30th August, so you have plenty of time to get your free swim in!

And if our Bravissimo ladies need an extra reason to go for a dip, the health benefits are enormous. Swimming is a great way to tone up your whole body, it’s low impact, kind to your joints, and it is a great calorie burner. Bravissimo have some fantastic sports swimwear, that will support your boobs, feel comfortable on, look great, and make you feel full of confidence (in and out of the pool).

The Brisbane Wire-Free Swimsuit by Zoggs is new and has already had some great reviews, it is wire-free and includes integral bra support, it is made from high performance PBT polyester, so will wash well swim after swim and still look great. It is available in black coral.

The Premiere Panelled Sports Swimsuit by Speedo is very flattering with contrasting racer panels down each side. It is an underwired swimsuit with clasp back fastening and chlorine resistant fabric. One of our reviewers comments that this swimsuit has improved her swimming: “I can now swim properly and quickly, whereas before my breasts used to sway from side to side! Would greatly recommend.”

IN THE SWIM

The start of another working week. if you are on your daily commute this Monday and you find yourself staring at billboards advertising hot destinations, you might find yourself drifting off and daydreaming of sunnier shores, it certainly makes the journey go faster! You may be one of the many UK residents whom have already booked their summer holiday, or you might be one of the lucky ones, going away soon, to search out some winter sun. Even at this time of year there are a few warm destinations not that far away, that are experiencing temperatures in the mid-twenties (sob sob).

Even if your holiday seems like its light years away, it is still difficult not to get a bit excited. Granted, we haven’t even opened our first Easter Egg yet and the Christmas Tree may still be visible behind the shed, but the shops are already full of cotton printed tops, strappy sandals and floaty dresses. There doesn’t seem to be much evidence of winter on our high streets and the same goes for our fashion magazines. It may be only the start of March, but we can still dream and plan our summer getaway and what’s the most important item when you head for the sun…swimwear.

Bravissimo have some fabulous brand new bikinis and swimsuits that have just hit our shops and online store, so take a look at some of our new styles available now. And if you just can’t wait till your holiday, you can always wear it at your local swimming pool, where you will definitely create a few waves.

Paris Bikini Top

Paris Bikini Top


The Paris Bikini Top by Pureda is absolutely adorable, it is a padded plunge bikini in a cute floral and polka dot print. It has a vintage fifties feel, but manages also to look contemporary, it is available in black with a white spot, combined with red flowers and red ties. This bikini top gives fantastic cleavage but also offers great support. It comes with a Swim Brief or Swim Fold Brief for more coverage.

The Boogie Bikini Top by Freya is another on trend bikini, it is available in a very vibrant sixties style retro print in Firefly. It is a halterneck top, which always creates amazing cleavage and it is available to buy with some sixties style bikini shorts or tie side briefs if you fancy something with less coverage.

If you want more coverage than a bikini can give you, you could opt for the Veronica Swimsuit by Panache, a really stylish and classic swimsuit, it is super flattering because of ruching detail and it also has a power mesh lining for more tummy control. It is underwired bra top with a keyhole detail at the back and comes in scarlet. This is a really gorgeous swimsuit that will look stylish year after year.
