Provides good support and the side panels have recently been improved (the previous side panels kept tearing because they were like very thin tulle), which made me stop buying this bra. With this improvement, I have been ordering it again. The underwire just digging at the sides but, I discovered this was down to wearing the wrong size. A couple of bras had the wire come out of the front and I had to push it back in (two years ago) but, the newest bras haven’t had this issue (ordered last year). Again this may be down to fit but, other people have commented on it and it does look as if bravissimo have paid attention to this feedback. I don’t like the pattern on the fabric, reminds me of rice grains and seems a bit dated but, because the bra is pretty comfortable and the one bra I have bought quite a few off and I rely on it, I’ve just put up with the design however, I do think Bravissimo need to offer more feminine/filigree/lacy look patterns for this style of bra and more pleasant colours Such as sexy red, burgundy, a nice baby pink, Ivory/cream and maybe even a chocolate colour bra! It lost a star because I found the straps fall down and dig in to my shoulders (I am a 38FF).
I found that a piece of fabric attached between the straps near the top to make it a racer-style back solved this problem. Bravissimo really need to supply something like this for slipping straps.
