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!).
This bra seemed perfect in every aspect, true to size, great shape.. But when I tried it on the underwires cut into my armpits and it got very painful. I am going to return this one.
Over 2 months in and I'm finally getting somewhere with this bra. The stitching around the fastener area is extremely irritating to my skin, it seems to be finally softening with washing. Not experienced this irritation on my back with any other bras it actually was leaving sore red marks at first. It's not my favourite bra, due to this discomfort, but I'm hoping it might be in a few more months! Other than that it's very supportive just a shame about the thread used on the stitching.
I love the fit of this bra, unfortunately after three months the strap started to disintegrate, hoping it's just a one off as it's the first t-shirt bra I've ever felt comfortable in.
I bought this bra in November 2015 and really have been very pleased with the fit, however the strap has frayed very badly. I really should have returned it to the shop as I think a bra at these prices really should be lasting longer. Incidentally I don't wear it every day or week so it's not been hammered with wear. I would recommend the bra and going to buy again but will make sure if this happens again I will return.
This has got to be my favourite bra from bravissimo , was fitted with this bra Instore and was really happy with fit and support . This bra gives a lovely shape and disappears under white . So comfy for everyday and smooth lines .
It took a while to get the sizing right- I am usually a 34H but had to go up in the band and down in the cup in this bra. I ended up with 36G. The bra gives fabulous support and a fantastically natural, rounded shape. Looks great under tee shirts too. After a while, the wires do dig in a bit but that's no different to any other underwired bra I've tried. I loved this bra so much i bought 2 for me and 2 for my daughter! However , as my daughter is only 12, I am now questioning the appropriateness of an underwired bra for her. The assistant who fitted us was lovely, polite, professional but why did she not say anything about wires possibly damaging growing breast tissue in teens? Very disappointed by this. Even more disappointed that I've had no response to my email questioning this! Come on Bravissimo- sort your act out. I have been a loyal customer for years and have never had any complaints apart from this.
T-shirt bras can be a problem because whilst they are smooth you can often get a visible 'ridge' at the top - which totally negates the purpose of a t-shirt bra. The idol bra completely disappears under clothes, gives a nice shape and is comfortable. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the boring range of colours! How about pastels & prints?
I went instore for a fitting, I asked for a black and white bra and the store assistant suggested I try this one! It's great so comfy and fits perfect! Although I did go down a size for the right fit! Still overall I would recommend!
