But I am so upset because it stops at a 40J and I am a 40K. Please bring it out in a 40K!
I adore this bra! I bought petal pink to change my usual black or bright underwear. I’m a convert! My normal sight fitted perfectly and this really feels like it moves with me. The stretch lace is soft yet strong. All round wonderful.
I like to wear an bra for a while before making a review. The colour is lovely, looks pretty and cup size fitted and gave me nice support and shape. Knickers matching were lovely. However, as the day wore on and with moving around the bra started pinching and by the end of the day I had red sore marks under arms. Even wearing the bra on the first hooks didn't make any difference, it just made the bra ride up and had to keep pulling down through the day. It's been washed several times hoping that it would give slightly however it hasn't at the moment so now put to the back of drawer and not a favourite.
With apologies to redheads - who look fabulous in the colour and really bring it to life - I hate beige and look ghastly in it. This pretty petal pink is a great “nude” t-shirt bra for someone of my ethnicity and colouring. The lace is lovely but doesn’t show under my t shirts and the pink feels feminine. Add to this the uplifted, rounded shape, and I’m all set for the warm weather. Bring it on!
First of all I want to praise Bravissimo. Gosh, you couldn’t ask for more: They stock my size (32HH), which is a feat by itself. The service was exceptional. The telephone staff, the website advice, the free returns, the detailed descriptions of the bras written by informed people, were all so helpful. Through their help I came to realise that I was wearing too large a back size. The very fast delivery and no quibble returns make life so easy. Now for the bra itself. I love the pink colour: it makes a wonderful nude and is feminine in a way the boring beige never is. The lace makes it pretty too. I love the support (which I need) and forward facing, rounded shape. It is really comfortable and it is a very good price for such a well-made bra. The only downside for me is that Bravissimo don’t stock Prima Donna bras. If they did I’d never buy from anyone else again.
What's not to love? Great fit, great support and absolutely beautiful.
I have previously purchased this bra is 3 different sizes. Initially I had the taupe in 32GG but the gore gave me rub marks as I was in the wrong size. Rebought in Heather 30H. Then when I changed size I bought the light blue 30G. Only issue is I'm making do when I need a 28, especially with the Clara's stretchy back (particularly with the drop to 2 hook below a GG). Again, gore too wide. Only to discover, my god, Bravissimo is carrying the Clara in a 28 back. They're the only ones offering it and they seem to have done so just to part me from my money. 28GG is rounding out my Clara collection now. May need to size up to a 28H, we'll see. This pink will serve as a nude for now. I'm wary of the jiggle.
Best fit of all bras since my boobs have changed shape as I reach 50. My bra fitter (in John Lewis) said that in menopause (and after weight loss) the breast tends to lose tissue from the inside top quarter, and so this bra, which has an elastic lace fabric exactly there, accommodates the changing size. Other bras can get gappy if they don't have this stretch lace fabric. I now have several! It can feel a bit "upholstered" as there is just such a lot to this bra - including a good internal sling - and though the new Bravissimo version is lighter, nothing matches the Panache Clara for me.
