Hi I'm Jenny, manager of the Norwich store

Also Pepperberry
manager photo
I wear a 32HH/34H depending on the style! I'm a 12SC/SD depending on the cut/fabric and I have been the manager of Norwich Bravissimo/Pepperberry store since 2010. As I was a Bravissimo customer before I worked here, I know exactly how it feels to have a fitting and what a life changing experience it can be. I know there is nothing we love more than to see a customer 'float' out of store feeling confident, comfortable, liberated and 100% gorgeous after a fitting experience with us.

Who's who...

My name is Fiona and I've been with Bravissimo since we opened in Norwich four and half years ago! I can honestly say that I LOVE MY JOB here and even miss it when I'm on holiday! I'm a very bubbly person and I try to make all my fittings as enjoyable as possible for all the ladies who come in and see me. There is nothing I like more that see a great big smile on your face when you leave looking AMAZING!!

I'm Julie and I've worked at Bravissimo Norwich for two and half years. I wear a 32H, as women we tend to view ourselves very negatively and my aim is to change that. My fantastic job gives me the chance to help you lovely ladies look and feel fabulous, so hopefully in the future we might start to be as kind to ourselves as we are to our friends.

I'm Kaitlin; I've worked for Bravissimo for just over a year. I'm Bra size 30F, I really enjoy my job, is when I get the chance to give someone a complete makeover and a confidence boost- all with the power of a well fitting bra! As a team we genuinely care about each other and I think this translates to our customers, as we always try to be helpful, caring and most of all honest.

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 Norwich you have helped us to recycle 118kg 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.
