Lots of Bravissimo girls love our vest tops as the full non-padded underwired bra that’s built in to them is super-supportive. They really come in to their own in the summer when you want to wear less and still feel really secure!

WHITE was just right. Completely different fit from the "Poppy Red" version!
It's ORANGE. Not even *vaguely* red. I don't wear orange. :-( I was expecting a deep berry red like a Remembrance Day poppy. My bra size ranges between 32H when I'm 10 stone and 34I when I'm 12 stone (now). I got 32 HH. The breasts are floating in the cups, I could easily add another half a breast!, but the vest itself is super tight. Weird. Sadly- since I am in Canada, I can't really return this. The cost of shipping is not worth it. Really disappointed in this one. I have several of these Bravissimo built in bras/strappy tops and they've all been great. This one is a real dud, I'm afraid! Perhaps I can find someone to pass it along to. :-(
First of all it's much more of a bright orange than a poppy red, and it's such a gorgeous colour! I am a 36FF in bras and bought the 38FF top. The cups are a little roomy, but the band fits well and the top is supportive and comfy. The fabric is quite thick, but does sit really nicely.
I bought several of these tops in different colours for my holiday I tried the white one and it fitted great but as it is a bit of a hassle getting it on I didn't bother trying the rest as I assumed same size same fit. WRONG! I had to buy bra extenders for the other ones as they were far too tight on the back and I had them too long to take back. I love the tops all of them just wish they all fitted as good as the white one. I felt confident walking around in just the vest top on my holiday and when I got home to the continued heat wave. I was well supported. However I feel they could benefit with a bit more under the arm pit as I seemed to over flow a bit there. This wasn't seen but I could feel it and would have felt better if it had covered more. I will definitely buy more of these, but will wait till they are in the sale as I would prefer to pay £20 which I feel is about the right price.
I found this to fit my body very well, and it was long enough for my height (I'm 1.64m). My usual size fitted well, and the support from the bra was fine. My only negative comment is that the bra is a little on the thin side, so doesn't give as much coverage as perhaps the coverage one would get from the padded versions of these vest tops. The coral cover is very pretty, and slightly more orangey than the colour in the photograph on my computer screen.
Considering the heatwave, I wanted to get some new vest tops. Being big busted, Bravissimo was of course my first choice. The top was very difficult to get on, and I felt like I would find the process annoying. It would be easier to wear a bra and normal vest top. The bra fitted me fine, the fitter adjusted my straps to a fit similar to a bra. However, the fabric was a little clingy on my tummy, which I didn't like. My weight is fluctuating at the moment so I wanted something I would feel comfortable in. Ultimately I decided it was not for me, but could suit someone else well.
I really loved the idea of this top, but I just could not get it over my boobs! Maybe it is ok for the smaller boobs, but other reviews do not suggest that. Stunning colour though!
On a positive note the top is a good length, the straps are comfy and secure, it has a more minimising effect than the padded variety and it is relatively easy to put on, though more difficult to take off! However the shelf layer is too short and does not cover the bra. Also the elastic is very loose causing the shelf to ride up. The back is a bit on the large side but going down a back size might make the actual t shirt a bit tight. Not as supportive as the padded variety especially if sunbathing with the straps down. I kept it as I was desperate for a white top but on balance prefer the old type.
