Hi I'm Natasha, manager of the Nottingham store

Also Pepperberry

I've been the manager of the store since 2007. When I first joined the company I thought I was a 38E (I could not have been more wrong!) It was very surprising to find out that I am actually a 34HH. Working for Bravissimo is like working within a huge family unit, with us all striving towards the same goal to improve the choice for women with bigger boobs. The passion of my team and the company to give great service and products makes me very proud every day. Making a difference to someone's life really does give you a remarkable sense of achievement.

Who's who...

Hi my name is Leanne. I wear a 28E. I have worked for Bravissimo since May 2008. I am very passionate about my job and I find it very rewarding. Bravissimo strive on high expectations and I will always go the extra mile to see a happy customer.

Hi, my name's Dawn. I'm in my third year at Bravissimo now and more passionate about the brand than ever. As I'm a 28f I really struggled to find my bra size anywhere else, and that's where Bravissimo come in. Working as a Consultant at Bravissimo enables me to empower women to feel good about themselves, and so they should! The Nottingham team are fantastic and deliver exceptional service to our customers. I feel privileged to be a part of this team and to contribute to Bravissimo's success.
Dawn Jarvis
Hi, I'm Julia and I have been working for Bravissimo for 15 months. Prior to working here I had my own maternity wear business for 23 years. The transition to working for Bravissimo was made easy because they are so customer service focussed which is how I feel retail should be. I enjoy working as part of a dedicated and passionate team and being able to offer knowledgeable and friendly personal service to all our customers.

I adore the colours on this bra. The first word that springs to mind is "Summer"! I picture a lazy summer's evening sitting in the garden with a glass of something chilled and bubbly. I can practically smell the barbeque! It is a classic Freya shape that so many of our customers love too.

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 Nottingham you have helped us to recycle 521kg 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.
