Almost brilliant

I really liked the look of this swimsuit but was really disappointed with it. It’s cut very nicely and the white contrast is flattering. I also like the feel of the straps crossed over, eased the shoulders for a change. The down side and the part that ruined it are the front cups. It isn’t underwired so the support is minimal but it’s also very narrow around the bust. You hang out the side and then there’s a cut out slit that shows too much cleavage. Such a shame. It’s designed for C cup and less.

Doesn't stand the test of time

This swimsuit looks great, it's a really flattering shape and initially I was delighted with it, but after a month of regular use it has completely disintegrated. Completely. The elasticity has gone and it's now see through in unfortunate places (which, by the way, was extremely embarrassing at the pool this afternoon). If you just want to look good on the beach for a week once a year, this will do the job. If you plan to swim and use it throughout the year, I would steer well clear.

I’m a curvy size 12-14, cup size 34E and quite tall. I tried several styles (disasterously I might add!) before this one and I have to say it makes me feel confident and stylish; whether it’s going to my lil boys (1 yr old) swim lessons, on holiday, or used in public pools. After 2 children and stretch marks that prevent the wear of bikinis nowadays it really ticked all the boxes for me! If this style isnt right for you, don’t give up and try another one on- strong believer in Bravissimo!

Could be stunning......but

I purchased this in store after falling in love with it when looking through the catalogue. Thought it looked very stylish. But the top shape is all wrong and doesn't give any support. The padding feels far too big and bulky. The strap stitching is too obvious at the front.Overall it is very disappointing. I was told the padding would mould to my shape, which it hasn't. Length is ok, swimsuits are usually a little short on me. Wish I had taken more notice of the fit when purchasing. It has the potential to be a stunning swimsuit.

I tried this in my nearest shop having loved it online. Like the other model I tried, I found the fabric really too thick and suspect that it would be uncomfortable to sunbathe in, and would take ages to dry. The straps were very clumpy and clumsy, and the padding uncomfortable. PLEASE Bravissimo give us a much bigger range of swimwear in lighter material and with underwires INSTEAD of padding (or at least soft and thinner padding) on the bust in the smaller bust sizes. Also the fit was very strange: I always thought I was quite long in the body but this suit was too long even for me, and to avoid bagging round the legs I had to hitch it up until it was in folds round the waist! VERY DISAPPOINTED!
