I’ve renewed my bra wardrobe recently and one of my new pick was Bravissimo Pretty as a Pin up bra. Full cup bras can be very supportive. Sadly this often comes at the expense of style. Bravissimo is doing a great job producing non-matronly full cup bras. I just wish they came up to an L cup, like the Alana. Anyway, me being a sucker for polka dot, I couldn’t pass on this little number.
It is supposed to be modeled after Bravissimo Melrose bra. I wouldn’t know about that, as this is the first full cup Bravissimo bra I’ve tried. What stroke me the most about this bra is how narrow the wires are, compared to other styles from the brand. So if you struggle with too wide wires, you might want to give this bra a try. They’re a bit narrower than I’d like but not painfully so. If fact, the whole bra is very comfortable even for a long day.
Secondly, the white lace panel pushes down the upper part of my boobs a little, so they don’t look their perkiest and I get in quadboob situations on my bigger days, but the shape is fine on my smaller days. For this reason, I wouldn’t advise this bra if you’re very full on top. Still, I love the firm secure feeling I get from this bra… And the narrow center gore that actually touches my sternum, quite a feat for a full cup! It would tack perfectly if it came in a larger cup.
In short, I love the look, support and comfort, like the fit and am ok about the shape. Also, the matching panties are adorable. Not bad!
