Bravissimo recently released their own brand padded plunge bra that starts at a 28 back and goes up to a…wait for it…J CUP!!!!!! Exciting stuff for the larger cupped ladies out there who need that perfect cleavage underneath their Christmas party frock.
I of course had to try it! I ordered it online in my standard size of 36H and went for an 18 in the thong. It arrived only a couple of days later, gorgeously presented in the usual Bravissimo box. I LOVED the stunning briefs with the cute little bow on the bottom but I am a thong girl and favour tight dresses, making the briefs a delicious but impractical addition to my wardrobe. I love the tiny bows on the back of the thong and on the central gore and straps, enough to keep them girly and cute and just for me to know about!
The bra itself has fully adjustable straps and three hooks and eyes – perfect for comfort and support! It is a satiny material with a gorgeous black overlay, meaning that yes it is a little shiny (especially with a camera flash) but it is more subtle and very elegant. The colour is not everyone’s cup of tea as it is a bronzey peachy orange, but I am a fan of every colour and so it appealed to me! The polka dots were an added bonus and super cute – show me a girl that doesn’t love a good polka dotting! And so the fit…
The 36 back band was firm, perfect for me. The H cups erred slightly on the small size and I felt like I was escaping out the sides slightly, an HH cup would probably be more right for me. However, I had no overspill at the front of the cup and so the fit was pretty much perfect. The cute trimming did not irritate me and yes, it does show slightly under some tops but that is what my deco is for! This bra was perfect under some of my other tops and dresses that had a plunging neckline and were patterned and not as tight around the bust. I did not have to adjust the bra at all whilst on and felt secure and sexy. The cleavage and uplift do not quite compare to the fabulousness that is the Deco but Bravissimo have done a marvellous job at giving bigger breasted women the option of a gorgeous supportive padded plunge!
