We’d like to introduce Jess our gorgeous new Bravissimo model! We’re really excited to have Jess as part of the team as we think she looks lovely in some of our new collection. What do you think?
To get to know Jess a little better, we asked her some quick fire questions. We hope you enjoy her answers below…
How old are you?
When did you first start modelling?
When I was 6 months old – my first job was for Pampers!
What’s been your favourite modelling assignment so far?
I did an editorial for a wedding magazine last year in Westminster, and I got to wear 8 different wedding dresses for a day. Not many people can say they’ve been able to do that!
What’s the best thing about being a model?
Travelling the world and seeing places that I would never have the courage to go to if it wasn’t for modelling, like Thailand and Hong Kong.
And the worst?
As modelling is so last minute with castings and bookings, it’s hard to let friends down when jobs and plans clash. Luckily I have amazing friends who understand what my job entails.
What do you most enjoy doing in your spare time?
I really enjoy music and going to gigs of new bands and artists.
Had you heard of Bravissimo before modelling?
What’s your life’s motto?
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”
What’s your favourite item of clothing?
My vintage ripped Levi shorts. I have about 3 pairs and I can dress them up or wear them casual, and they are sooo comfy.
What’s your most embarrassing moment?
I don’t really have an embarrassing moment, but I really don’t like when situations get awkward, so I will try as much as possible to make sure it won’t get awkward, even if that means making a fool out of myself.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Anything chocolate. I’m usually really healthy but chocolate is my weakness.
If you were on a deserted island and could only have one item with you, what would it be?
A digital radio, so I could listen to music all day and night.
Look out for Jess in more styles this Autumn and Winter!

We’re so excited to be able to bring you our full Autumn collection brimming with ruby reds, bold blues and every colour in between. This season not only features some of your firm favourites in new colours, but it’s crammed full of new styles for you to try.
Here’s a selection of some of the styles we really hope you’ll love.
First up is the popular Satine in this sumptuous new Winterberry colour. This bra needs little introduction as it’s so well known for its fabulous fit and luxurious feel, but in case you need further persuasion, Anita (from Mount Pleasant, Australia) left us this review:
“5/5 Fabulous Bra! This bra is fabulous. It’s a great shape, good support, sexy and is comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this bra…I have 3 of them.”
What’s more we’ve listened to our customers and are so excited to tell you that you can now buy the Satine in this really wearable nude colour – a little bit of luxury for everyday wear!!
We said we had bold blues, and they don’t come bolder than this! We’ve refreshed the Demi Diva for Autumn in this fabulous cobalt blue. This underwired half cup offers great shape and support and the soft shimmer fabric and glitter bows ensure you’ll shine this Autumn!
For a truly feminine look, why not try the, Clara Bra by Panache. Clara features a new innovative lace which has been made to look like fabric for a luxurious look with a smoother feel . The cornflower and graphite colour, teamed with satin and lace makes this full cup style simply irresistible.
Finally, here’s something to get you in a tailspin. Ruffle My Feathers has a lovely blue and burgundy feather print, with a delicate scalloped edge embroidery.
There’s lots more new lingerie, swimwear and nightwear styles for you to try so why not visit our website to see our full Autumn collection or visit your nearest store.

Here at Bravissimo HQ we were recently contacted by freelancer Jessie King who has been researching how ‘ideal’ body image and so lingerie trends, have evolved over time.
We just loved her history snapshot that she has put together from her findings and hope that you do to…

With Summer still well and truly in full swing it can sometimes be a challenge to find cami tops without showing off your bra straps.
Have you tried Bravissimo strappy tops?
Unlike other strappy tops, our strappy tops have a fully built in underwired bra with clasp back fastening. They are bra-sized so that the top fits your boobs perfectly, and the cups are lightly padded which helps to give a lovely naturally rounded shape. They are available in back sizes 30 – 38 and go up to an H cup.
These tops are not only perfect on hot and sunny days when you want to wear thinner straps and don’t want to have your bra straps on show, but also on cooler days, layered under other tops or dresses. There is a simple cami top or halterneck style, and are they are available in a whole host of different colours.
Here are a selection of some of the reviews our customers have left about the strappy tops:
Margaret from Ruislip – I am a huge fan of this top and have it in all 3 colours. Not only does it give great support, it gives a great shape too! It is wonderful to be able to wear strappy tops without having ugly bra straps showing. 5/5
Chrissy from Surrey – Absolutely love these strappy tops, I have nearly brought all the colours, they give good support, they are true to size. I am in my early fifties with a larger bust and for the first time can wear a little top with no bra/straps. 4/5
Raewyn from Australia – Love, love, love this top!! Super comfortable and cool for our long, hot Summer!! I love the fact that I don’t have to wear a conventional bra (no double straps), and that it’s still really supportive!! Fits like a glove. 5/5

We want to wish all of our wonderful Dad’s a very Happy Father’s day on Sunday. Here are some of our thoughts on what makes dads so great.
You can always rely on dad:
- To make you laugh
- To pick you up when you’re stranded
- To give you guidance
- To rescue you from a spider
- To embarrass you
- To say yes (when mum said no)
- To finish your dinner so that you’re still allowed pudding
- To fix it
- To be your hero
What makes your dad the best dad in the world?
