I’m Sarah-Louise, the store manager of Bravissimo Cambridge. I joined the company in 2015, but I’d already been a customer here for thirteen years! Bravissimo was the first lingerie shop in which I felt proud of my figure and now I am dedicated to passing that feeling on to others and celebrating how amazing everyone should feel about themselves. Even if you’ve never visited us before or even if you don’t think our sizes are for you, pop in and have a chat to us anyway – you might be pleasantly surprised. It’s such a special and truly unique company because we create a close, personal relationship with our customers by listening and relating to them, so they leave with exactly what they want.

Who's who...

Hi I’m Amy and I’m the supervisor at here at Bravissimo Cambridge. Right from my first shift when I was fitted for a bra, I knew I was in good hands! Being part of a company which makes such a huge difference to peoples’ lives is so energising and rewarding. We come into work every day wanting to make people feel amazing and celebrate every kind of body shape. We’d love to see you in store for a fitting.
Amy
My name is Jude and I’m the senior fitter here at Bravissimo Cambridge. I’ve been here since the shop opened in 2003 and I’m proud to have seen this company evolve and grow into what it is today. I enjoy my job so much because I am able to really help alter someone’s perception of themselves by giving them a bra that fits and make them feel great about their body. I love knowing that I have made someone’s day (or week!) and given them the confidence they deserve to have.
Jude

What's in store?

We'd love to see you for a free personalised bra fitting!

Our fully trained fitting staff are always on hand to offer individual fittings and advice, whenever you visit us. However, if you'd prefer to plan ahead we are also able to offer you a 20 minute appointment. Please call the store, or pop in to find out more or to book your fitting.

On a daily basis we see such a variety of women; young girls, older ladies, voluptuous ladies, breastfeeding women, women who’ve had mastectomies and women of all shapes and sizes everyday of the week. Many people can feel a bit daunted by having a bra fitted for the first time, but please let us put your fears aside.

fitting rooms

Private fitting rooms

All of our fitting rooms are completely private and you don’t have to change in front of anyone! Being fitted can be daunting for some people, but we really try to make the whole experience an enjoyable one by putting our customers at ease. If you’re uncomfortable about undressing in front of the fitter, don’t worry, we’ll leave you to it – you can lock the fitting room door and we’ll knock before we come in. The fitter need never see you without your bra on if that’s what you’d prefer. We have many different fitters in our shops, which reflect our customers – from younger women to older mums, and we all have lots of experience to ensure that you go away looking and feeling fabulous.

No tape measures

We don’t use tape measures as we don’t feel that they give an accurate portrayal of your size, instead we use the bra that you’re wearing as a guide and show you where it’s not fitting you and ascertain what size you should be from that and also, what styles are more likely to suit you. From there, we encourage you to try on a selection of styles – many different brands of bras fit in a very different way, you may be one size in one style and a different cup size in another. In our experience, 60 per cent of women currently wearing a C cup should be wearing anything from a D cup and above. The majority of women who we fit are wearing a bra that’s too big in the back and too small in the cup, so really, they’re a lot slimmer than they thought they were! Essentially we show you how a good fitting bra looks and feels and why. We then show you all the styles that will flatter you. It’s just like having a personal shopper on hand – we do all the running around fetching you lots of different styles until you’re completely happy!

waiting rooms

Don't worry about the kids

Note to mums with small children – we know that your time is precious and that sometimes you have to bring the children shopping with you. We don’t mind at all having children in the shop, in fact, we have books to keep the little ones entertained while you have your fitting. Note to breastfeeding mums – please don’t worry about breast-feeding in our shop! If you need anything at all, such as a glass of water, (we know that this is thirsty work), please just ask.
