About Bravissimo

Bravissimo is a dynamic, entrepreneurial company which, since its launch in 1995, has grown consistently year on year. We provide products for women with bigger boobs, and a service to inspire them to celebrate their curves and feel good about themselves. As a multi-channel retailer, 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.

Bravissimo has won many awards, including being in the Sunday Times list of the Top 100 Best Companies to work for each year for the last five years. We have ambitious plans for the future, and need flexible, dynamic people to support and drive our growth.
