Wires help give a bra structure and keep the fabric that supports you in place so you may feel more secure, particularly if you used to wearing underwire bras every day. An underwire style will also give you a more defined and separated shape which you may prefer compared to soft-cup styles (which work much more on the basis of compression of your bust).
Who said Bravissimo girls can’t be active because we’ve got big boobs? Not us - we just need good support! Because the bounce factor is higher for us big-boobed girls, a good sports bra is essential for keeping everything in place.
We’re really pleased to offer lots of options for Bravissimo girls, so if you want to be active, we say go for it!
Sports bras work on the principal of holding your bust close to your ribcage for maximum hold and minimum movement. They need to have a wider back and give more coverage than a normal bra so they can give the right support, and they tend to be made from fabrics that draw perspiration away from your skin and are fast-drying.
As with all bras, what suits one person may not be so good for another, and it also depends on the activity that you’re doing, so how do you know which one to try? Take a look below to learn more about the different styles that are available – we hope this helps you to work out what might work best for you.
Soft-cup sports bras tend to be made from fabric with minimal stretch that feels firmer. You will be less separated in a soft-cup bra because these bras work on the basis of compression. Soft-cup styles can be good for activity like yoga or Pilates when you want to feel secure, but don’t need really firm support.
Racerback styles are popular as many Bravissimo girls find them more secure and comfortable. Some of the standard styles we offer also have a clip on the straps which enable you to make it into a racer back if preferred.
