GET IT RIGHT THIS CHRISTMAS

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.

Delphi Basque by Masquerade

Delphi Basque by Masquerade


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!

red hot and dazzling

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!

Demi Diva Bra by Bravissimo

Demi Diva Bra by Bravissimo


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.

Bettie Mae Bra by Bravissimo

Bettie Mae Bra by 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.

Superstar Bras

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.

The Alana Bra in Denim

The Alana Bra in Denim


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”“.
Deco Bra by Freya in Graphite

Deco Bra by Freya in Graphite


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”.

Spot On

The Crystal Bra by Freya

The Crystal Bra by Freya

This summer the polka dot trend has been big and it looks like it will roll into the autumn too. It was all started with THAT stunning polka dot dress by Stella McCartney, that Kate Winslet wore to the Mildred Pierce premiere back in March. A sexy black little fitted number with a sheer panel of spots flowing down one side. Liv Tyler went on to wear the same dress a couple of months later and it was a close call as to who wore it better. Other celebrities currently sporting spots and going dotty for dots are Helena Bonham-Carter, Anne Hathaway and our very own lovely Holly Willoughby (or Hollywiloubooby as she is affectionately known).

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.
