The goddess of bra fitting has finally smiled upon me! I've never found a strapless bra to fit my small (5'1") frame before, and this is wonderful. I didn't have to go down a back size as some other reviews have suggested, and it's surprisingly comfortable. It doesn't dig into the armpits (a common problem I've found with strapless bras and small people) and although it's fairly compressive doesn't give a strange shape. All thumbs up from me.
I used my previous Deco strapless until it wore out. I wore it with and with out straps, the strap hook bits are fine and hold well, and the support with out straps is great. For me, I know Deco makes the big boobs look bigger issue, but its that or gravity takes its toll for a strapless night out, and I know what id prefer. Mind you with all my years of using Bravissimo, gravity hasn't got to me too badly, thanks all big boob bra makers for giving us nice bras!!! Padding might be thicker but no one can spot you on a cold night either!
This bra is going nowhere it has a vice like grip but is super comfortable, the fitting ladies suggested I get a size smaller back than I normally order which was perfect advice and probably where I've been going wrong in the past with strapless bras, however I did need to go up a cup size, it fits perfectly and I feel very secure.
I sized down to a 36E and this fit pretty much perfectly, however not enough support or coverage for me. I was looking for a strapless bra to wear with a bridesmaid dress and really don't want to be worried about falling out or to be adjusting it in the wedding photos so am going to send it back and try a different style. A shame because it is otherwise lovely, am sure it would be perfect for smaller sizes.
This bra is the most supportive strapless bra that I've tried, but as a result it feels a bit uncomfortable after a few hours of wear. In addition, I'm not a fan of the shape it gives, as the padding is quite heavy and therefore gives a pretty unnatural shape. But overall it is a good bra, though not for everyday wear.
I have had this bra for nearly 5 years and it still serves me well. I always use it for special occasions, its my must have, I am only now starting to need a replacement due to everyday wear and tear. but after 5 years who's surprised. It is by far my favourite bra in my closet. Definitely need a new one and I think I'll be getting it in nude as well to go with all the light and floral dresses I'll be wearing this summer. It doesnt give the support that strapped bras do without the straps but it does give enough so it can support comfortably all day especially because of the 4 hooks it has help to keep it the same place, which is definitely needed for us larger busted girls. LOVE
Looking to replace my old strapless bra, which I thought was also deco, but may have changed design. When I tried this on, oh my goodness, made me look like Boobzilla! Not for bigger ladies, if they don't want to look even bigger. Old one still much more flattering under clothes, so my search continues. Wish bravissimo could have a ratings system for thickness of padding. Light padding gives flattering shape. Boobzilla padding though... I also found the straps very thin and the attachment loops were folded twice before stitching. Whoever had inserted the hooks previously may have put them through the wrong layer and it took me ages to unhook the straps. Almost gave up for fear of damaging the bra. Backsize came up tight, compared with same make in conventional bra.
I purchased this bra for my wedding, it was incredible. The fit is great, without any side boob overspill, and the support was incredible. I was pert, and felt comfortable all night long.
