Very disappointed with this style. I ordered it in both black and white. The bra gives my breasts a horrible pointy shape. I can't return as I have worn them a couple times now as I needed new bras desperately and couldn't wait for a new return and new order. I will not be wearing them again though. I do recommend this bra at all.
I was first fitted for a Melrose bra when living in Edinburgh a couple of years ago, and have been hooked ever since - I'm now up to my fourth order and wouldn't buy bras anywhere else! I've had to go up sizes a couple of times, as they're yet to wear out on me but my breasts apparently keep on growing, as my larger breast keeps on overflowing out of one of the cups every 8-12 months unfortunately. Would love a store here in Australia though so I could get fitted again instead of just taking a guess when I buy online! Nice, simple design; super comfortable; and easy to care for. And even with postage cheaper than the bras I've bought here in Australia in the past. A staple of my wardrobe. Thank you Bravissimo!
I am pregnant and the fitter at the Milton Keynes store found this really nice and I find quite sexy comfortable bra as my breast size have increased! It is very comfortable and I love it! I would recommend that if you can, always go into the store, the ladies are excellent fitters and really make you feel at ease. Such a wonderful professional service.
Fits lovely, feel very supported, only just tried it on, haven't worn for a day yet. Only thing, the top half isn't see through like what the model wears so looking at myself in the mirror, I feel like I'm 27 years old but wearing my 92 year old nans bra :-(, it just looks like it's got a full black cup instead of the top half being see though lace :-/.
I've been wearing this bra since Bravissimo first launched it, so over the years I've bought it in black, white and nude repeatedly, and the quality has significantly dropped! For the last 5 or 6 I've owned, I've noticed that after a few washes the wire starts to poke out from the middle and it hurts, this didn't happen before, my first few Melrose bras lasted MUCH longer! Great shape (a little pointy but I find that slimming vs. side-boob), great support and straps that don't dig in because they are relatively wide...but Bravissimo, since you NEVER put these on sale, please improve the quality so I don't go through so many so quickly! It's not fair to your loyal customers!
This Bra is so soft and comfortable. i love this bra so much iv got it in black and the white and i would recommend this bra
I ordered this bra in black and in white because there was so many good reviews on it. Well I'm not particularly happy with them. The shape that the bra gives my breasts is almost pointy and flat on top. I have a very full 38 J/JJ depending on the bra, and this style makes me feel as though thier hanging lower than they should because they look so flat on top. So I can't wear these bras with a lot of the clothing that I have. They also aren't comfortable to wear for long periods. For me the scalloped lace that runs along the edges digs into my skin. Also I'm not sure if I got a defective bra but the black one fits tighter around the band than the white one and they are both the same size. I wouldn't recommend this style for comfort or look. The only positive is that it is supportive.
This bra is my favourite as it gives such a good upfront shape. Used to wear the alana bra but didnt like the way it split my boobs so much. So far washed very well, no wires protruding after a few washes either, and best of all, the straps do not continually fall off my small shoulders. Love it!! I
