Idol is our best-selling T-shirt bra. It’s moulded which means it’s seam free, so it gives a really smooth line under clothes and is lightly padded which gives a rounded look (and does the extra job of nipple coverage!).
It's certainly the best t-shirt bra I've ever bought because it gives a smooth shape, even under silk tops. However, I only wear it on occassions when I need something under thin tops or t-shirts, but certainly not for every day, as it is too uncomfortable. The bottom of the bra is very heavy. Hard, inflexible wires press into my ribs when I'm sitting down. It also has scratchy stitching under the arms. I judge bras on how relieved I am to take them off, and when I take this one off, it's utter bliss. Not a great sign, but I put up with the discomfort for the few hours I need really smooth coverage, as there is nothing better out there.
After years of searching around and scraping the net, I found the ultimate shallow boob rounding bra. It's the only bra I've ever had that makes me feel and look a million dollars, which is quite a feat because of the lack of projection and the height and width of my boobs (they are high rooted, distant and wide, this bra does me the favour of scooping up all the breast tissue from my armpit.) The band is nice and firm, true to size for me. I ordered a 28DD and a 28E, which I'll return: the fit was almost the same, but the 28E gaped a little on my smallest boob.
I love this bra and have now bought two more! It is a great shape under clothes, a smooth line, and is really comfy.
I have had three of these bras over the last few years and they are great. However, I have had to replace each one because the wire pops through the material. It is razor sharp on the end in between the breasts but has a cover on the other end which would prevent this happening if it was on each end of the wire. A simple problem to rectify, surely. Please Freya, sort this out.
I was fitted with this bra in store. It’s very supportive, gives me perfect coverage and it’s very comfortable. It also gives a lovely shape. I have to stop myself wearing it everyday. So happy that finally I have found a supportive bra! Thank you Bravissimo!
So glad I purchased this bra, it is so very comfortable and as a T shirt bra does exactly what it says on the tin - under thin material clothing with not the “dreaded nipple” look in sight. Has just enough padding. Ordered 2 more as so delighted.
So comfy from the second I put it on. Fitted me exactly right. Now buying in other colours.
I'm so glad that the customer service team recommended this bra for me. They advised that it came up a little larger in the cup than others, so I might wish to go down a cup size. So glad I did! I'm normally a 36G but went for a 36FF and I must say the comfort and coverage is good! I always hate buying new bras because you never know what shape they're going to give, and was especially nervous about getting it online. But the customer service was incredible and quick, and I will definitely be stocking up on this same bra in other colours.
