Great fitting bra and brief. I now have this set in both pink and black. The black is nice and the contrasting pink/red is lovely and not as bright as the pictures online. I bought this in my usual size. Pants lovely and fit me in M and I am a 12-14 hourglass.

Overall Review: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3/5 stretches out in the band
I'm in the process of returning this bra (at my expense of course because I'm from Canada), but, felt I should also review it here for future buyers. In less than three weeks and only approximately 3 washes ( hand washed using soak and hung to dry only) I am already wearing this bra on the very tightest hooks and it's still sliding up my back through the day. With heavy breasts the band staying firm is very important for good support through the day(I should also mention I was a bra fitter, it was the right size, fitting snuggly on the loosest band when purchased). Having my breasts slowly sag down is unflattering and uncomfortable. So buyer beware, the band is not supportive and stretches out very fast! And I hope bravissimo is able to send me a different bra, this one is awful.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Cups slightly small, just slightly
I live in the US where it's very hard to find large cup sizes in small band sizes. I've noticed my 34J cup bras are starting to be uncomfortable. I ordered this in 34JJ to size up and see if a little more space would be more comfortable. This bra is a great fit for strong, firm support. I can understand the complaints about "downward trajectory," I think this happens when the cups are a little too small. You may need to go up a little to compensate for this. I love this bra and am going to order in pink. Might even order 34K.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Bright Comfort
I've had this bra a year now and I still can't get over just how bright the colour is; it definitely hasn't faded in the wash. The fit and support is ideal for me and I find it a very comfortable bra to wear. However I like my bras to have a tight band and so bought a 30HH instead of my usual size. This bra does lift and draw the boobs forward in a slightly 1950s kind of way which I find suits my style rather nicely. Would contemplate buying more if it was available in toned down colours.

This is one of the comfiest bras I have had for ages. The fit is great for me 34 FF. Love the colour but would like to see it in other colours. Navy or nude would be fab (and black without the cazy contrast) Probably not too robust but you don't always want industrial strength

Overall Review: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2/5 Not enough support
I am a 40L and this bra is simply not robust enough to support me. When I tried it on in the store it was fine but it has stretched out so quickly so I had to start using the end hooks a lot quicker than than I expected. It provides no stability in the cups, and as the underwiring is now pointing outwards. I can't wear this bra any longer as it simply isn't fit for purpose for L cups.

Overall Review: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4/5 One of my favorites
I enjoy this bra but my bust is 44L and it is disappointing that this bra only has 3 hooks. That is simply not enough to help support my 16kg weight and so the backing pulls into my lower back and applies more pull onto my shoulders. 5 hooks would be great! The build of the bra is strong and the straps are a good length. I would recommend this bra for most people but caution anyone L cup or above. I was only able to try this bra in 36 as the 38 and 40 were sold out already by the time I purchased this :( This bra in magenta is super pretty and I encourage anyone to try this out!
