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

It’s vintage inspired swimwear today ladies, with our final ‘Vintage Britain’ Blog.
Swimwear is probably the most important purchase before any holiday as it’s something that you wear all day long, so you need to be comfortable, supported and still look stylish. All the selected styles have a gorgeous British vintage vibe that conjure up images of the British seaside in days gone by…think brightly coloured beach huts, grand architecture, donkey rides and Punch & Judy. However you don’t have to be holidaying in dear old Blighty to fit in with our vintage theme, our Bravissimo swimwear will look stunning on any beach where the sun is shining, from the Isle of Wight to Ibiza.
The Tropical Paradise Bikini Top by Bravissimo (new from Bravissimo) is a gorgeous floral bikini and very similar to a bikini that Brigitte Bardot wore on the beach in Cannes in 1953. This bikini is an underwired halterneck, it’s very flattering for bigger boobs and gets top marks for its shape, support and uplift. It is available in tropical floral, which will look good on any skin tone. It is available to buy with matching swim tie side or swim briefs and if you require more coverage than the bikini top will provide, there is a Tropical Paradise Tankini Top by Bravissimo too.
The Antigua Bikini Top by Pour Moi in aqua dot is also new, and proving very popular already. It’s another super flattering halterneck which has lightly padded cups. It ties at the neck and the cups are edged with a cute frill. It also features a gorgeous central bow, so along with the polka dots it adds to the vintage look. This bikini top will create great curves while offering good support. It comes with matching swim shorts or swim tie side.
The Beach Belle Tankini by Faubourg has a pretty seaside vintage feel. Available in floral/stripe, this tankini combines fabulous, retro style florals with candy stripes. It is an underwired tankini top, with a concealed bra back fastening. It is available with matching swim briefs or swim shorts. One reviewer comments, “I love it, the design is stunning and the material is very good quality. Can’t wait to go on holiday…”

Not many people could complete a challenge like that, not many of us wouldn’t want to. But it does show you, David Walliams is just a very strong swimmer, not an Olympic swimmer. Swimming is a great all round exercise and no, it’s not a good idea to take a dip in a fast flowing river, but taking up swimming in your local pool is a great idea if you want to get in shape. It’s kinder to your body, your boobs are supported by the water, so the bounce that you get when you take part in aerobic exercise is eliminated before you even start. Swimming will boost your metabolism, it firms all of your muscle groups and burns calories. And the best bit? It doesn’t put any stress on your joints as it creates weightlessness, so you can swim happily everyday without injury. Swimming can also help keep you young, research shows regular swimmers are biologically up to 20 years younger than their actual age.
So if you need any more reasons to take it up, how about Bravissimo’s brand new styles of swimwear that are in our stores now. They are so gorgeous, you will be happy parading up and down at your local poolside. The Paradise Swimsuit by Faubourg in red palm is a stunning swimsuit, the tropical print is based on the Kashmir Swimsuit from last autumn. It is underwired and very flattering with a sexy plunging neckline, it has adjustable ties at the neck, this swimsuit is exclusive to Bravissimo.
The Monroe Halter Swimsuit by Panache will look fabulous in the pool or at the beach, it has a fifties look and is on trend with its lovely polka dot print and is available in chocolate/cream. This swimsuit is super flattering and is underwired and will flatter your shape also giving great support. It has a cream panel, which sits under the bust creating a nipped in waist.
The Premier Ultimate Swimsuit by Speedo is a great sports swimsuit if you are a serious swimmer, it has a supportive built-in bra and is a very flattering fit. The fabric used is chlorine resistant and is very comfortable. We have received wonderful reviews on this swimsuit, it is available to buy in, aqua/black, black/pink and ink/pop pink.
Come on in girls, the water’s lovely.
