This popular non-wired bra has really full coverage, good support and gives a separated fit. It’s a comfortable option for those of us who prefer not to wear wires or could be an option pre-natal, post-natal or after surgery.
I bought this to wear on a long-haul flight - I just can't wear an underwire when sitting cramped for so long. I'd bought it so close to departure, that I didn't have the opportunity to wear it at all before the flight. It seemed very comfortable when I tried it on, and wasn't too worried. I found that it stayed pretty comfortable for the whole flight. It doesn't have the greatest up-lift or shape, but then, it's a soft-cup, and you compromise. I would recommend it if you're after a strap that is more centrally placed (for a more comfortable weight distribution).
The fit of this bra is good but I do find the positioning of the adjustable bit on the strap in the wrong place for me making it a bit uncomfortable . Can't fault the online chat staff - helpful and you never feel rushed - unlike some other companies that use this service.
I was a 32ff pre pregnancy and have so far gone up to a 36gg. I live in abu dhabi so I ordered to the UK and my sister brought them out. It is a lovely bra and the fit was great until I'd worn it all day and the bottom band started to roll up and hurt me! I think the band needs to be wider to stop the rolling. I would have tried a bigger back size but this seems to be a common problem so I probably won't order another. It's difficult to return them from abu dhabi.
Soft Charlotte not for big boobs! Compressed and hanging down...
It took lots of size trying before I found the correct one, as this was my first soft cup bra. I am usually 28H in underwired styles but this bra I had to upsize to a 30H. Around the chest measurements seem way off (much smaller), so get a selection of sizes if you're not sure. It does give the boobies a slightly different shape compared to my underwire bras but fine under my work clothes, its my new go to bra. It is very comfortable, soft material and machine washable (praise be!) I will be buying the rest of the colours in the same size now.
In trying one of every soft cup bra sold through Bravissimo, this one came-in sort of 'middle of the pack'. It's a well-constructed bra, and is pretty much true to size, for me (32G). However, my breasts are quite round, and my nipples point forward, which seems to be an issue with many bras...this one included. Like so many other bras, when I first put this one on, my nipples are about an inch higher and more medial than where the nipple is obviously meant to sit in the cup. Plus, there's some empty space at the point of the cup. Eventually, my breasts conform, but that means my perky, round breasts then look a bit pointy and saggy. ...And that's not very flattering. But it DOES have good support and is comfortable. I'm happy enough with it as a 'wear around the house' or 'to do errands' bra, but wouldn't buy it again.
I am wearing this for the first time today and it seems quite comfortable with good support. I usually wear wired bras with Panache, Clara, jasmine, Melody suiting me best. Following a lumpectomy/lymph node removal 3 days ago I needed a soft supportive bra for my babies. I'm not too keen on the shape it gives me and it's not very glamorous but the good support is helping to ease the pain. My usual size is 34H I had to go up in this to 36H. I luv Bravissimo the Leeds girls are wonderful, can't do enough to help you. Thank you xxxx
Although this bra isn't the most flattering shape for me it is a decent bra. The construction makes my boobs a bit cone-shaped, not round or flat. It probably looks better on smaller or firmer boobs than mine. It is very tight and firm, almost a bit small. I will use it for exercising since it really keeps my boobs in place.
