This is by far the best bra I have ever worn and it looks like Bravissimo have discontinued it! I have three red ones and one pink-but think it would be fab in other shades-mint and black, purple and black, silver and black, teal and black-there are so many possibilities! Please bring this bra back!
I fell in love with this bra when I saw it online. It looked like it had a similar fit to my Freya Deco and my Parfait by Affinitas bras. Unfortunately, I could've gone a half size up. I think that the shape may not have been the best for heavy on the bottom breasts. It kind of pushed my breast tissue up and to the center so they don't stay in the cups the best. You have to position them just so and not move much if you have the heavy on the bottom, narrow breast roots. Being very busty and small can make these types of bras not always fit perfectly. This isn't something I bought for work wear and is more or less a bedroom item, so I'm not too worried about the fit. The thong and the suspenders are lovely as well though I wish the band on the suspenders was a bit thicker for some of my insecurities about my hips.
I was bought the whole set of this as a birthday present and although I wanted the briefs I was told none were available for order so had no choice to opt for the thong. That was not the main problem I have had this bra for over a month now and the wire was very stiff and digs into my chest bone and ribs after a few hours or wearing I was fitted properly in store as I always do for my bras as my body changes and thought maybe it just needs time to give a little but now a month on and it still digs into my ribs and breast bone causing pain. I am past the date to be able To take this back and considering the amount that was spent on this set I'm not best pleased with it. I buy all my bras from bravissimo and they are normally a brilliant comfortable fit however this is the worse one I have ever bought.
Ordered the Sienna Bra with high expectations, having read the reviews for the Nude colour. However, I am a tad disappointed. Firstly, as another reviewer pointed out, the colour is more of a bright red, as opposed to a wine red as in the pictures. This being said, I am quite particular towards my shades of red, perhaps this won't be a problem for others. Secondly, and perhaps more important, the material is poor: the seams of the bra are quite visible, and looked creased, even under a fairly loose knitted top, so needless to say I won't be able to wear this under more fitted shirts without having a 'creased' look to my boobs. I have other padded plunge bras from Bravissimo so this seems to be a problem unique to the Sienna bra in red. The good of the bra is that it is true to size. Unfortunately, whilst I really want to like the bra, the Sienna would be going back, I can't justify shelling out for its price considering the somewhat poor construction.
The bra looks really cheap, straps plain and flimsy. The cups weren't smooth and didn't have a very nice shape once on. Certainly not what you'd expect for the price.
I find this bra one of the most comfortable I have, the only improvement it could have is by making the straps nicer rather than being so plain
I love the Satine bras and was expecting this to be similar, but I wasn't happy with the quality. The lining seemed cheap and very creased - so much so that I wasn't sure it would ever flatten out. The seaming on the outside wasn't smooth, and the colour was more of a scarlet than burgundy, which I didn't like. Altogether, felt like a much cheaper version of the Satine, so it had to go back.
I love the Satine bras, but find that they just don't quite have enough coverage on the cleavage, and the the next size up was too large by far. This, however, is just perfect. The fabric has slightly less bulk than the Satine, and seems to just have the tiniest but more coverage. I love it. Please consider having this design in other colours.
