I have sensitive skin, and typically avoid anything with lace on. For years I wore the Serene bra which I found very comfortable, but recently I have gained weight due to hormonal issues, and the Serene bra sadly no longer suits me. I went for a fitting in the Guildford store and was initially put in Panache's Porcelain Elan bra. This was fine in the fitting room, but when I got home and tried to wear it, the wires dug in under my arm pits, it was quite painful actually, so I had to take in back to the store. I then went for another fitting, and the Melrose bra was one of many I tried, and the one I ended up taking home with me. Unlike Panache, the wires suit my body shape and do not dig in, the shape and fitting of the wires in this bra are very much like the Serene bra. I also like the fact that this bra has three hooks, I'm now a 34H and need three hooks to keep me in place. The straps are also nice and wide too, giving extra support, what is the point of having thin straps? Also, the lace is soft and doesn't irritate my skin. Well done Bravissimo, will be buying more in other colours.
