Description

Alexa is one of our best-selling bras due to its style, support, and comfort – who says Bravissimo girls can’t have it all? The cleverly-constructed cups are lightly padded to give a great rounded and smooth shape and the delicate on-trend lace panelled back looks super cute peeking out under tops. Many of you have told us how comfortable you feel when you wear it…the fabric is oh-so-soft to touch!

Good for contortionism!

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

Alexa is the perfect soft, high-quality fabric, molded bra... for a contortionist—because I’m not sure how people are meant to put on this contraption. The snap for the racerback has a tiny closure, way worse than any bikini top I’ve ever worn. I eventually had to snap that first, lift the half-done bra over my head, and then painstakingly do four hook and eyes. I bought it because from the shape of the lines it resembled Niya, which I love. It has a much lovelier more supple fabric than Niya but the fit just isn’t there. Great underwire support, nice longline feel, high quality lace, but it just doesn’t feel like a bra I could wear all day long. Extreme plunge and massive cleavage though, for those of y’all who are into that! Size up a cup; band will be snug, but fit.

Poor weight distribution from panel strap

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

This bra looks fantastic, has straps that pull in just a bit to hide under halter or sleeveless cuts, gives good cleavage with a low cut for plunge necklines, the fabric is soft, and it has an adorable matching thong with a good cut. That said, it's the least-comfortable bra I own because of the lace panel strap. The top of the straps are pulled together enough to redistribute some pressure from the chest band at my rib cage to my shoulders--and that causes muscle fatigue and shoulder / neck pain pretty quickly. I start noticing fatigue within 15 mins and by the end of the day there's serious pain. I've caught myself hunching over to redistribute weight lower down my shoulders away from my neck muscles, which isn't a great look or posture. In addition, the bit that sticks out between your underarm and the bra strap has never been a problem for me before, but is now because the straps pull toward the neck at a steeper angle. I bought another bra in this style, the Atlanta, at the same time, and do not have the same issues with it. I think the difference is that the panel strap on the Atlanta is stretchier / has significantly more give, so it doesn't redistribute pressure from the ribs to the shoulders. (Worth noting, the Atlanta also had a slightly better cut on the thong, or possibly it was the fabric, but Alexa feels like they focused on soft / not-binding fabric enough that the same size is nearly falling off.) I wish they'd made the panel feature on the Alexa more for show and less for supporting weight, because it supports that weight in a less healthy place, and I prefer Alexa's aesthetic dramatically over Atlanta's. Would not buy again because of the back panel. You may not have the same problem if you can wear racerbacks and halter tops regularly; I may just be too used to weight resting on the bones of the shoulder rather than the muscles of the neck and upper spine.

True fit, so comfy, really good support and not too expensive! Everything you could want in a bra. Highly recommend.

My favorite bra!

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

It fits so perfectly and is very comfortable. The straps lay in a different location across the shoulders from other bras, which is a nice break. Despite the plunge style, my boobs stay securely in place (not like another similarly-styled bra, not from Bravissimo). I also love the side silhouette of my chest in this bra, it is able to hold my boobs up where they belong! The back of the neck closure was a bit complicated, but I usually keep that closed and slip it over my head to make it easier.

OK bra, poorly scaled for small band sizes

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I'll start my review by stating that I had to compromise on size with this bra. I purchased a 28J, but have to wear it on the tightest hooks so ideally I would have needed a 26JJ. The cup does come up a little on the bigger size for a Bravissimo bra, which is good for me as I normally spill out of a 28J. The material of this bra is lovely and soft and the idea behind the design is lovely. Fit wise I encountered a few problems. The underwires are absurdly wide, I find that they finish closer to my back than my front, and the underwire arcs awkwardly away from under my breasts. Bravissimo, you really need to actually look at some women with small band sizes with a large cup size, this is a common issue with your bras because you fail to account for the fact that people with narrow backs are often narrow in front as well. The cups are incredibly shallow at the bottom, which does make me look incredibly booby, but also makes the bra slide down as my breast simply can't fit into the bottom of the cup. Finally, less of a fit issue and more of a scaling issue. The lace panels on the 28 band are much narrower than shown in the product pictures. You may think, "it's a 28 band, that makes sense" but proportionately there is less lace, instead of starting at near the hooks in the middle it starts further away, and the lace doesn't extend as far around, so instead of the look being thin at the top but wider at the bottom the lace just goes straight down which doesn't look anywhere near as lovely. Bravissimo, please work with some women in my size range when you're developing bras to help you figure out what actually works. I volunteer as tribute.

Wow!

This is by far the best bra I have ever owned. After getting stabbed in the side by my underwire on a previous bra, I went to try this on. I was not expecting how comfortable it feels. It’s so soft and I can barely feel I’m wearing a bra except for the fabulous cleavage it gives! For a 38GG, it’s impressive. Well done Bravissimo!

Gorgeous and supportive

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I love this bra, I loved it in the magazine and I loved it on in the shop. It looks great on brown skin. The clasp at the top of your neck is a good idea and took me a bit of getting used to, it's true to size and looks great on. It is smooth under clothes and close fitting shirts. I don't know about all day comfort as I haven't worn it all day yet. I personally think it's one I would want to take off when I want to lounge an feel comfy at home on a night as it fits very snug around your middle.

Sexy yet supportive

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this bra as it makes me feel sexy and supported. Gives good cleavage and goes well under racer back style tops. Please can you bring it out in a nude, as I have the pink and black, but have some white tops that the pink is a bit too dark for.
