I am so sad to hear that this bra is being discontinued as it is the first strapless bra I have ever had that fits and supports! I bought a black and immediately ordered a nude too. I've a feeling I will wear them till they fall apart which will be a very sad day indeed. Yes there is a bit of a cone shape, but I can live with that and anyway it suits under a bardot style top or 50's dress. The band is a bit on the tight side, so while I'm wearing them in I have a bra extender, but I only need one extra hook and the next size back would have been too small. It's high gore and quite wide around under the arms but doesn't ride high into your armpits. Overall I'm over the moon, please keep stocking it Bravissimo!!!
I ordered this bra because it was on sale, and received it very quickly, which was nice. I found it extremely hard to get the bra clasped, but once I did it felt ok. However, the fit of this bra is just strange. It does hold up my boobs, but it makes them extremely pointy and cone-shaped, which looked pretty bad under a shirt. I know that there is only so much that a strapless bra can do for a HH cup, but this was not a shape that I think most women would want their breasts to have.
I never thought that a strapless bra would work for my 30H figure, but this bra amazed me! Good fit, shape, and nothing fell out or slipped down! An impressive piece of engineering, and comfortable too!
Unfortunately the bra doesn't come in my size so I bought the smaller size in hope of it fitting. My boobs are a bit squashed but it works. I was jumping on the trampoline while wearing this bra and was pleasantly surprised that the boobs stayed perfectly fine in place. The shape of the bra is perhaps a bit cone shaped but to be honest I'm just happy to be able to wear a strapless bra again!
I ordered 2 different strapless bras and hoped for the best as I haven't owned a strapless bra for a very long time. I found that this one gave me a very pointy boobs!. Maybe its a personal preference but as this bra is not padded, it does give an odd shape. I also found the cups to be a little 'baggy' in places. I'm sure it may suit some but for me, I returned for a refund.
I ordered my normal 32H but couldn't even do it up at the back; the sizing is really out. I exchanged for a 34H which fitted fine. The support is pretty good considering my cup size, but I feel more comfy and secure wearing it with the straps as a cross back multi-way bra than strapless, as I feel it pushes down a bit otherwise.
I have always struggled with strapless bras and was looking for a black one to go under my very unforgiving Wolford Fatal dress. This was just perfect. Excellent support thanks to the boning in the cups, and very little padding so it doesn't make me look bigger than I am. The cups do come up quite high but I shall fold them over and sew them down so they don't pop out. I have had to do this in the past with strapless bras and it worked just fine.
The bra itself is good quality and a good price. The problem is that it doesn't fit. The cups were too small for my normally J size. The boobs also give a very pointy shape and I had a good giggle in the mirror at my new found Madonna figure. Thanks for the strapless bra for bigger sizes Bravissimo but please can it be a little better thought through.
