When did you first discover Bravissimo?
I first discovered Bravissimo 15 years ago. Having struggled to find bras that were comfortable, I was amazed to discover that not only could I find bras that fit, I could get them sent to Cornwall to try on and choose the ones I liked! Three years later, when I moved to London, my first port of call was a Bravissimo shop, so I could have a fitting. It was so nice to meet all the lovely people in the store and be fitted - it felt like a real treat!
I gave birth to my son William eight months ago and while I was pregnant lots changed about my body. As I got further into the pregnancy I felt very aware that my boobs were getting bigger and I knew that they were going to get even bigger still! My ribcage expanded too, and bras stopped fitting me. I made a mad dash to Bravissimo and said “please help! I’m pregnant and I don’t know what to do!” The advice was incredible – I had lots of options to try and the fitters were really honest about what worked.
Just before William was born I bought a nursing bra as I was planning to breastfeed. I spoke to the fitters at Bravissimo and they helped me to choose a bra that would fit me for the rest of my pregnancy as well as giving me room for when my milk came in. As a new parent, I found shopping online so valuable as I didn’t leave the house much! I could order bras from the website, get them delivered to my home and try them on to see which was the most comfortable for me which was so important as a new mum. It was great to have a selection of bras that were comfortable and looked good with my clothes. As a breastfeeding mum, your bra is out in public a lot so that fact the it looked good was a bonus!
