About Bravissimo

Bravissimo is a dynamic multi-channel retailer which provides lingerie, swimwear and clothing for women with bigger boobs, and offers a service to inspire customers to celebrate their curves and feel good about themselves.

We sell our products via mail order, the web, and our 23 shops. We stock a wide range of lingerie and bra-sized swimwear in D-L cup (28 to 40 back sizes) and have our own range of strappy tops with built-in bra and nightwear with integral soft-cup bra. We also have a clothing range, Pepperberry, which offers clothes cut for women who need a bigger size on the top than on the bottom.

The company has won many awards for its products, service, entrepreneurial approach and originality, and for the last 7 years we have been one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for. We have ambitious plans for the future and need flexible, dynamic people to support and drive our growth.
