At first, I was unsure, I'd recently been wearing a MAE bra, which I loved, but, it's no longer available. The Melrose is even better. The MAE was very supportive but could feel a little uncomfortable by the end of the day. The MELROSE supports, looks great and is comfortable from morning till night. Have lost a little weight, so not sure if that's why I had to get a cup smaller than usual.
This is my second Melrose and I was wanting a nude one for summer clothing. Having lost a bit of weight recently I worried what size to get but, bingo, I lucked out and bought the right one! I've had this for about a month and it's been tested in extreme heat and still looks and feels fine. Thanks!
This is my fourth Melrose bra and I have had to purchase another one as I have lost weight. I find it difficult to get bras which don't dig into my breast tissue and most do, no matter what size I get, so to find a bra where the wires sit behind the breasts is fantastic. It's supportive and very comfortable to wear and is my go to bra now. I agree the down side is that it's a little pointy in the shape and it's not the sexiest bra but a small price to pay for such comfortable fit and support. I have not had the wires poking through they have all been fine.
Simply the most comfortable bra ever. Not aware I am wearing it. Lifts boobs up, shape more rounded that I prefer but definitely a winner!
I'm about to order my, I think, 6th bra in this style. I was shocked by the size numbering at my first fitting but hey, who else is going to look at the labelling. Fortunately I have not needed to return for further fittings - yet. As with a few other reviews, I too have had the wiring poke through the fabric. I fixed this by sewing a piece of bias tape over the hole, but I do not recall how old the bras were when this happened. I'll keep a closer eye on the new one!
I've had a lot of Melrose bras over the years and I've always been really pleased with them - they have washed and worn really well. However, I bought two just 6 months ago and both have had problems with the wire on the right hand side of the bra, poking through. The wire then digs into my arm and makes the bra really uncomfortable to wear. Something must have changed for this to happen as I can see I'm not the only one who's had this problem.
Absolutely purrfect. This was a free bra and I absolutely love it. Fits very well, pretty and feminine but strong enough to do its job. Very comfortable and gives a good shape. Thank you very very much.
I've been wearing the Melrose bras in all 3 colours almost exclusively ever since it was released by Bravissimo, and in recent years, despite careful handwashing the wires have started to poke through the material after a few weeks or months. I've raised the issue in-store before I bought my most recent set of 3 but the staff claimed they haven't changed the manufacturing at all over the years. Somehow, the quality of the material has dropped because the first few Melrose bras I owned lasted me for years, yet all the new ones have wires poking through. I'll be looking for a different style during my next shop which is a shame because this gives a great shape and support for a large bust with a small back.
