Since Bravissimo hit the high streets, there have been plenty of our bras that consistently receive fantastic reviews from fans and we feel they are worth shouting about, as they seem to have made such a difference to our ladies’ lives.
These bras stand out not only because they give amazing shape and make clothes look fantastic, but also because they are still comfortable and supportive which we all know is THE winning combination.
One of our superstar bras is the best selling Alana Bra by Bravissimo. This bra has been used by the one and only Gok Wan at one of his recent roadshows and we know how he feels about finding the right bra, before you even move on to the outfit! Our in-store Bravissimo fitters love this bra and probably use it the most during fittings because of the gorgeous shape it creates, plus the super fit and support. For an everyday bra it is pretty and is available in so many colours you will be spoilt for choice. The Alana, is an underwired balconette and in sizes DD-G cups it has a 2 hook fastening and in GG-L, 3 hooks. A selection of the positive comments about The Alana, have included, “The fit is true to size”, “It creates the best shape”, “Highly recommended for everyday wear”, and “Is very, very comfortable”“.
Another one of our amazing performers is the Deco Bra by Freya, because we know how much our Bravissimo ladies rave about this bra. This gorgeous bra is now newly available in graphite, with a pretty mother of pearl button detail, this is a perfect buy for autumn. It is a moulded plunge, which is perfect for close fitting tops. It also creates fantastic cleavage, so when you want to go for a sexier look with a lower cut top, maybe for an evening out, the Deco would be a great choice. This is some of the great feedback we have received about the Deco bra, “The Deco is absolutely the best moulded bra there is”, “I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find it”, “It’s true to size, supportive and so comfortable!”, and “Fabulous fit-great cleavage”.

Spots are a very wearable trend and do a good job of injecting some fun into everyday fashion. They are easy to accessorise too, if you opt for a shirt or blouse with a printed spot, then plain trousers, jeans or a pencil skirt will look great. If you choose a spotty dress, then you have lots of options, you could choose a fitted cardigan, in a vibrant colour and match with tan boots and tan bag. Or you could wear with a blazer in denim, a suit jacket, or a belted Mac. A spotty dress is easy to dress up or down, so can be worn day or night.
If you like spots but are not too sure about throwing yourself into the trend wholeheartedly, then you could try wearing it as an accent, in the form or a scarf – try the Spotty Scarf by Pepperberry.
Or if you are still not convinced, Bravissimo have some fabulous new dotty lingerie that is utterly desirable. Check out the gorgeous Crystal Bra by Freya, if you are a fan of the deco bra, you are going to love this one, it creates amazing uplift and cleavage and will give you an enviable shape. It is available in teal, with white spot. The matching shorts are really lovely, a must if you are going to buy this bra.
Also new and exclusive from Bravissimo, is the Dotty Spotty Bra by Bravissimo, this bra is so gorgeous, it must be shown off. It has a real 50’s starlet look and is finished with the cute bow detail in the centre. It is available in two colourways, aqua/red and black/café (which is our new colour for autumn). This bra is slightly fuller than a normal balconette, but it is still a very supportive fit. This bra is available to buy with briefs or shorts, for that added cute factor, the shorts have a cheeky little pocket on the back.

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).
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.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.

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.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. 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.

We all know how important it is to feel good in our everyday lives and we all know that in order to feel good, we have to look as good as we can. Every woman is different, for some ‘looking good’ means being perfectly groomed, for others it means just a slick of eyeliner, for others it might mean keeping up with the latest trends. And when we don’t look good, we often don’t feel too clever either. We have all watched the style makeover shows like ‘How To Look Good Naked’, when you see the dramatic and emotional effect that a transformation has on the women who take part.
Determining your correct bra size and buying a bra that both supports and looks amazing can have the same wonderful life changing effect. The discovery of a bra that is as sexy, as it is supportive, should never be underestimated. You look better naked, you look better with your clothes on, posture improves, back, neck and shoulder problems can be eliminated and to put the cherry firmly on the top of the cake, it also improves your confidence. We know here at Bravissimo, from all of our feedback from our gorgeous ladies, that your first correctly fitting Bravissimo bra, whether it was the Alana, Melody or Tango was a moment that you will always remember and you probably haven’t looked back since.
If you are one of our many ladies that has found the perfect fit with Bravissimo and you know women out there that are still walking around in ill-fitting bras, with straps that dig in, cups that are overflowing, or bras that could fit a football team in the space between you and the bra, then please do something about it, talk to your fellow ladies and spread the word. Why not recommend someone at http://www.bravissimo.com/recommendafriend/ if you fill in yours and a friend’s details you will receive a Bravissimo catalogue and we will enter you both in to a prize draw to win £300 of Bravissimo vouchers and a year’s supply of Hotel Chocolat chocolates each. Beautiful Bravissimo bras and heavenly Hotel Chocolat goodies, what could be better?
