Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top by Bravissimo

Was: £32.00   Now: £25.00
Shoestring straps used to be a real challenge for Bravissimo girls, especially when trying to find the right compromise between bra support and having those pesky bra straps on show! Not any more! We’ve worked hard to design a solution that is not only comfortable and supportive, but also provides customers with an array of colours and styles to choose from.

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Real women should buy strappy tops
I feel quite evangelical about strappy tops. Every time I see a curvy woman wearing a top with shoestring straps, with bra straps showing, I want to say to her ''buy a Bravissimo strappy top''. Apart from looking so much better, people think that you have either got a really firm figure or that you have a false chest (!), because you don't have to wear a bra underneath a skimpy top. The strappy top is also very supportive and comfortable - you can run with it on without getting a black eye! Please never stop selling them.

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3/5 Be ready to sew!
I have 5 of these tops, I've wanted them for years but thought them quite expensive, then I decided to splash out last summer. They do look fantastic - not more showing bra straps and very flattering. The only warning is make sure you have plenty of ribbon to try and sew back in the wires! 2 of my tops have lost wires and I've been sewing ribbon over the seams to try and keep them in but have to keep doing it as they pop through again. They are also hand wash only, so a bit inconvenient and even that doesn't stop the wire problem! I want to buy more strappy tops but will first shop around and try and find another supplier - if I do buy these again I will reinforce with ribbon before wearing (one of the tops only lasted one wear!) - unless Bravissimo you want to enhance the design with better seaming around the wire ends?

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Perfect for summer
I love these strappy tops. I bought a couple last year and am back to buy more colors. I am a pretty consistent 34F (Freya, Panache, but 32FF in Freya Deco), but ordered a 36E because I have a bit of a tummy that I wanted to hide. They fit beautifully and I found them to be very supportive. I'm so excited for the new colors!

Overall Review: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3/5 not great
I bought this in the sale although I was dubious about the lightly padded bit but decided to try it. And I was right I am big enough on top 32H without adding to my top half and being short doesn't help either 4ft 11 and a half I'd like something that supports and doesn't make me look as big!!

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1/5 Disappointed
I bought this strappy top in May last year and have been so disappointed. I really, really tried to like it! However, I found it to be the most uncomfortable, unflattering garment I have ever worn! I found the padding to be anything but light (as per the description), and the seams of the padding were far too thick, which gave me the most peculiar shape! Far too uncomfortable for a garment meant to be worn on hot, sunny days. I think your bras are wonderful, but your strappy tops are definitely not for me.

this top has been a great accessory this summer , but I'm now unable to wear this top as the wire of the bra keep's popping through making it unwearable.
