This bra is amazing! It looks lovely - my husband seems to like it too! ;) and the fitting is amazing! The reason I gave it 4 stars for this however, is more because as the day goes on I feel it slipping gradually on one shoulder (this is because of my shape, not the bra though) and I think I just need to try adjusting it until I get it right. But the size is perfect! I have gotten so much bigger since being pregnant and it was starting to get depressing, but now I feel a lot more confident with a fitting bra that also feels comfortable!
I would highly recommend talking to Bravissimo's fitting team over the phone if ordering online before exchanging or returning items! They are very helpful and friendly! I usually go to the Cambridge branch, they have such a wonderful team there and no doubt will be going once baby is born (or maybe before to get more advice on this current bra!?)! But the fitting team over the phone were able to alleviate any concerns I had and explained how I could tell if it was a good fit or not! Which is why I opted to purchase this one in the end - I made the right choice!!!
So, before I got to this bra I only tried one other. It was none wire and a 32GG (my size before I got pregnant!) Did not work for me at all! Gave me the dreaded monoboob effect, which I cannot deal with being so big and all. But everyone has different shapes and sizes so I wouldn't discount those straight away if you are just starting out! I know people say that under wire is no good if you're planning on breast feeding, but I think at the end of the day you have to be comfortable and this bra certainly gave me that!
When I have the funds, I will be buying another - and probably a bigger one as I seem to still be growing in that area!!! Fingers crossed I don't get into the J's as my clothes will be the next concern!
Love from a much appreciative, pregnant customer!! xxx
