Hi I'm Kelly, manager of the Manchester store

Since 2012 when I joined the company, I have found Bravissimo to be a great brand to work for, looking after us "bigger boobed" women with plenty of styles and colours for us to choose from. I love to meet new people so working with Bravissimo whose values are to make a difference to the customer gives me satisfaction in my role and makes the customer feel good too. It's also great knowing that the company gives so much back to the local community and supports a national charity as well. It makes me proud that as part of our team in Manchester we can help change people's lives.

Who's who...

I'm Alyshea, I have worked for Bravissimo since 2nd August 2001, I love working at Bravissimo because everybody is warm, friendly and genuine, they are like my extended family. I'm currently a 30gg but it can change with different brands and styles. Bravissimo understands that and that's why I think it's the best!

Hiya, I'm Cat and I've worked for the company on and off since 2004. I've worked at the Covent Garden, Leeds, Liverpool, Chester, Aberdeen and Manchester shops. I love the difference a fitting with us can make to someone's confidence.

We've fallen head over heels for this gorgeous pansy print! We know a longline bra isn't every girl's cup of tea, but with pretty lace details and a great shape in the cup, we just couldn't resist!

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.

Charity

Bra recycling

For 2014, our national charity is Mind, who campaign to improve the lives of people who experience mental health problems, promoting better services and more accepting attitudes.

Bra recycling

As a store we do lots of fund-raising for local charities, and Bravissimo Pepperberry supports one national charity: Mind. We encourage our customers to recycle your old bras in our Charity Bin as the bras in good condition are passed on for distribution in the developing world, and for those well past their prime we receive a £1 for every kilo of material we recycle, so every bra counts!

Here at Manchester you have helped us to recycle 109kg of bras so far! Thanks for your continued support. If you have any questions or would like to do a local collection of old or ill-fitting bras, please contact us in store.
