Description

Alana is a long-standing favourite for lots of Bravissimo girls who love its firm and comfortable fit. The rigid embroidery in the top cup not only looks great but keeps you in place and minimises jiggle, too!

This style comes up small, so we’d suggest trying a cup size bigger than usual but keeping the back size the same.

Lovely blingy thing

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

Having read the reviews I went up a size from my normal 34G to 34GG and the bra fits like a glove. The gold bra straps are fun and festive and the little gold touches on the bra and briefs are so pretty. A+ from me!

Sizing is different

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I have bought this bra from the first time it came out years ago, the fit was always great. I have to say the one I have just received is on the smaller side from the others I have, not sure why this is, the back should be a 32 but it is smaller in the back than my other 32 Alana bras!

Beautiful, Supportive, but Gapes on Smaller Side

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I usually waffle between a 32E and a 32F (for the larger side), but the initial 32F I ordered was actually too small. Returned it and sized up to a 32FF which was much better... so I would absolutely SIZE UP IN THE CUP as the description suggests. With the proper size, the cups give a nicely rounded shape under shirts, although (as with all cut and sewn bras) the seams are prominent. The top edge of the cups isn't forgiving, and can cut into your tissue if you have high "roots" (and, I would imagine, full-on-top breasts too). It hugs my larger side pretty well, but it "bubbles" or "puffs" away from my chest on top, as that side is more of a slope shape. It's a little embarrassing as a reminder that my boobs are really uneven, but the overall support wins. Plus the lilac/lemon colorway is GORGEOUS, spring-y, and feminine: everything I love in a bra! Those stiff cups are for a limited range of shapes, though, so I would keep that in mind while ordering. Again, SIZE UP IN THE CUP!!!!

Same great fit, no more painful underboob loops!!

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

The Alana has been my favourite Bravissimo style for ages, it's always a great fit - I go up in the cup size as recommended. I was so excited when they updated this style to remove the tiny loops under the band (they served no purpose and dug painfully into the skin), but I was worried because other reviewers disliked the new style. I decided to give the updated style a try anyway and I LOVE IT. It fits just as well as previous Alana's, it's the same fabric and lace, only the straps are different but they're very comfortable (they look like grosgrain ribbon but the underside is even and soft against the skin) and I have been wearing it the entire day with no chafing - I used to have to 'break in' the old Alana style because of those loops. Please make it in more colours!

Great Bra, Fab Colour.

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

Myself and my partner always struggle to find anything we like that goes up to her top of the scale size of 40L. A visit to any store usually ends in frustration that we can't have x or y bra in her size. We used to love the Panache range when Sarah was a smaller cup but they don't extend beyond K cup and that's a great source of disappointment to us, and many others we suspect. (Please Bravissimo exert some pressure on Panache)! However, we love the Alana style, it offers great support to Sarah's boobs and gives a really nice shape, no 4-boob effect and the boys are safely wrapped within. Despite us being at the upper end of the big boob scale we have never experienced any failure of wires, straps, material or any other part of the wondrous garment that is the Alana bra. The new colour is fab and we have all shades and hues available now. Please keep up the good work Bravissimo. This is a fabulous piece of support, structure and engineering.

Slippery straps

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I never had an issue with Alana bra straps when I first began to purchase this bra two or so years ago. They were matte and had a slightly thicker 'felt' fabric like feel, which your fingers could not slide along. Over the last few purchases, I have noticed these becoming more and more shiny and smooth in feel. Needless to say since the change I cannot keep straps on my shoulders, I am returning the straps to their rightful place on my shoulders about 3 times an hour. Its getting me down and I am fed up with it. Why oh why did you change it? I might as well put oil on my shoulders. Note I am not putting any products on my shoulders that is contributing to this problem. Really is a pain in the rear to be pulling the straps up on average 3 times an hour, indeed walking my dogs this morning, it was many more times than 3. If it wasn't broke don't fix it. Please give us those straps back. There is sometimes the need to put comfort before look. Return to the previous straps please.

Great everyday bra

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I am extremely happy with this bra. I love the support and extra coverage it offers. I usually wear Freya 28FF, but the 28G in this style fit just right. This is the first Bravissimo brand style I have felt comfy in. Please continue to make in the 28 band! I plan to repurchase this style. It is so nice as a nude everyday bra.

Supportive, but so itchy!!!

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I ordered four bras in the same size, and this was the smallest of the four in both the band and the cup. I found it very supportive and it tacked well at the center gore, but it was so intensely itchy that I know I would never wear it. Such a shame!
