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.

Is your Christmas shopping underway? You may be one of those highly organised women who shopped in October and whose presents are wrapped and ready. Or you maybe the type who leave it until Christmas Eve and actually quite enjoy the last minute dash from shop to shop, either side of a cheeky visit to the pub.
At this time of year it’s impossible to escape the marketing campaigns of our nation’s retailers. Two of our major department stores seem to have their Christmas TV adverts on a loop at the moment. We are constantly confronted by all of these ecstatic people opening pressies, which either makes you feel all smug that your Christmas shopping is done and dusted, or you start to slightly panic that you haven’t got anything for the really special person in your life. Whether it’s your wonderful mum, your partner (hello fellas! We know some of you read this), or your fantastic sister. There are certain people in your life that just deserve that extra special gift. Bravissimo have some brand new nightwear that would make great Christmas gifts.
Take a look at the gorgeous Satin Cami Top by Bravissimo in blue. This cami top has an integral bra and is wire free, so offers comfort and support whilst you sleep and if you really want to make that special person smile, why not buy the matching Satin Shorts by Bravissimo. These shorts are so soft and luxurious, they will ensure a great night’s sleep.
The Satin Nightdress by Bravissimo is the perfect present for any special lady, available in blue, this nightdress has black lace overlay over the boobs, a small lace bow and black lace trim on the hem, it features a wire-free integral bra and soft underband support.
We’ll be offering more present ideas over the next couple of weeks, so until the next time, happy shopping, and take a good look around Bravissimo.com for more exciting ideas and do take the time to look at our Christmas Gift Vouchers.

If you have a special someone in your life, then you might want to surreptitiously show them this latest blog. The Festive Season is approaching rapidly, and if your partner is looking to score major brownie points on Christmas morning, then some presents are clearly better than others. Here’s a list of no no’s: Pots and pans (unless it’s a posh Le Creuset), an iron (even worse, a new ironing board!), socks (especially festive socks), a kitchen bin and the old favourite – the bread maker.
However, these are some gorgeous gifts that us girls would be happy to receive; perfume (not cheap stuff), a leather handbag, a gorgeous silk nightdress, cashmere…anything, any luxurious bath soak or body lotion and lingerie (that’s where Bravissimo come in).
If you are shopping with your partner this weekend and you walk past a Bravissimo store, you might want to drop a few subtle hints…”OMG I love this place”, “If I had to show someone I really cared, I would buy them a gift from Bravissimo” or “It looks like rain, let’s just shelter in here for a few minutes…” Or, leave our page open on the computer, with a post it saying ‘Wondering what to get that wonderful woman this Christmas? My bra size is…’
The perfect Christmas gift would be the Delphi Basque by Masquerade, as it gives you the ultimate hourglass figure. It is available in black/graphite, with a wet look finish, diamante embellishment and lace. This basque is underwired and lightly padded and with clever boning and toning creates amazing shape. It is available to buy with matching briefs or a thong, which really finish off the look.
The Lola Luxe Basque by Bravissimo would be an amazing gift to receive. It is exclusive to Bravissimo and we have already had great reviews for this one. It’s our first ever basque available in a K cup. It comes in black/teal and is very pretty with the cute teal bow embroidery. It is extremely comfortable to wear and creates a gorgeous smooth silhouette. Choose either the matching briefs or thong, which are a must have with this stunning basque.
If you want to inject a bit of glamour into bedtime, then point your partner in the direction of the Ivory Silk Nightdress by Bravissimo. Available in antique ivory, it is a beautifully soft and elegant nightdress, exuding vintage glamour of old. It has an integral bra, which is wire free for comfort and a tie under the bust, which makes it very flattering too. Our Bravissimo ladies seem to really adore this nightdress.
So let’s get the word out to our poor confused husbands and partners. There’s no excuse this year lads, those Rudolph comedy socks just won’t do!

I hope all you Bravissimo girls are getting in the mood for bonfire night, it’s all about gorgeous jacket spuds, sausages, mulled wine and hearing that lovely cracking and snapping sound of the bonfire. The evening usually ends with a spectacular fireworks display, the thing about fireworks is, they only happen once a year, but they are always much more fun than we remember. It’s not only the kids that are screeching as the rockets shoot up in the air, you will probably spot some adults whooping too!
If you are going to an organised display or you are putting on a party yourself, then wrap up warm and stay safe. For our ladies that are choosing to opt out and watch Strictly or X-Factor instead, if you have a spare ten minutes, why not browse our new styles of lingerie. We have some really stunning new sets that will turn up the heat (even if you are nowhere near a bonfire) and we are taking our inspiration from November 5th and all things red hot and dazzling.
We have introduced a demi bra, which has certainly got our customers talking. The Demi Diva Bra by Bravissimo will definitely light some fires as it is a half cup with underwiring, it comes in gorgeous pillabox red and is finished off with leopard print bows in the centre and on the straps. This bra gives incredible uplift and creates amazing cleavage, but it’s still supportive. There are matching shorts or briefs available, which are very cute with ribbon tie sides. (top tip…best tied while lying down) The Demi Diva is exclusive to Bravissimo.
Another sizzling new bra, is the Bettie Mae Bra by Bravissimo. This set is available in lovely satin like fabric in coral/black, with a tiny mesh polka dot and the cups are trimmed with black lace. This bra is an underwired lightly padded plunge, which is perfect for wearing with low cut dresses or tops. The Bettie Mae bra comes with either briefs or a thong, we love the briefs, they are naughty but nice, the detail is all at the back, where the briefs are sheer with a large net bow.
Both sets are utterly gorgeous and wearing either of these will be sure to cause a few fireworks of your own. Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.
