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 Love these tops!
Last year I bought a black one and I had to get a 32F, I'm bra size 32E or F (depends on the bra) so I tried the 32E and it was too small. This year I ordered a couple of new colours in 32F thinking they would be the same and I've had to return them to the store today as they were too big. I've gone for the 32E this year. So I would say, yes they are a great top and so nice if the weather is hot and you don't like bra straps to show. Yes they are expensive but I've been buying them for years and I still wear ones I got about 4 years ago so they last well and wash well. So they are value for money in the end. Just one small point, I would love them to be slightly longer in the body. They come just over my jeans so sit above the hip bone (and I have a short body!) if you are long bodied you may struggle with these.

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4/5 Gorgeous... but seams show through on darker skin tones.
Firstly I need to say that this is a genius invention, and I *will* be recommending this product to all my busty friends. The material is lovely, it looks gorgeous, the material looks strong but feels really soft against the skin and the support - for me, anyway - was as good if not better than the majority of my bras! Unfortunately, despite absolutely loving this vest top I will be bringing it back today, as the seams show through quite vividly on dark skin tones - particularly at the back. It's possible to see the full outline of the "hidden" bra from a distance due to the contrast in skin colour and bra colour. I completely understand this, as of course Bravissimo's consumer base will mainly have lighter skin tones and so a dark coloured hidden bra would stand out like a fog light. But perhaps some day in the future, a top could be developed where you can pick between a light, medium and then dark-coloured under bra? So that darker girls can wear them? :) That would be ace!! x

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2/5 Disapppointed
I was hoping a lot from these "strappy tops". When I put this one on, I found it great on the bust (right size, good support, nice cleavage) and it felt comfortable, but... sadly the lower part of the top looked really bad on me. It was far too large on the waist, which made me look as if my belly was as big as my breast! I tried another of those, non-padded, and it fit the same... A pity, because I would buy several of those if they had a more flattering shape...

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2/5 Disappointed
I purchased the aqua top for my holiday but upon first wear, I was absolutely embarrased to find that the fabric changes colour when wet. We were in Mexico which is very hot and has high humitity which makes you sweat. I went into a mirrored lift whilst sight seeing and saw that my top was a darker colour under my bust and arms and all down my back. I was very upset but there was nothing I could do at the time. Please also don't assume that because you have been fitted at a store for one of these tops that any subsequent purchase will have the same fit. I purchased 2 additional tops (aqua and white/red stripe) following buying the red and white stripe which i loved only to finds that the cups were bigger and there are visible seam marks (possibly due to the ill fitting cups). Subsequently, I now have 1 top that fits nicely, 1 that the cups are ill fitting and one that is ill fitting and cant be worn on a hot day. Therefore 2 unwearable tops = £68 wasted.

Lightly Padded Underwired Strappy Top
Overall Review: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2 out of 5 2/5 Lovely - but still need a 28 band
I tried on this gorgeous striped version hoping against hope that it would be small enough in the band. But I had to fasten it on the smallest hook and it was still moving around. So, yet another summer of no strappy tops because the band sizing is off. I am always a 30 back but would need a 28 in these. The cup size was perfect. PLEASE make these in a 28! The ones I have from years ago (30DD and 30E) are so much smaller in the back and fit fine, but they are so worn now that I can only really wear them around the home. Very disappointed....

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.
