We share our results only after the reviewed bra has been fitted on at least 10 willing women and has been appraised by 6 of our fitters, because no bra suits all shapes. Our bra reviews are distinctive because the knowledge and experience of our professional fitters is incorporated with feedback from our customers. Why? Because we find it unfortunate if a particular bra receives a poor appraisal in a review because it didn't work for the person who writes the blog! Many of the blogs are fun, well written and trusted but that banished bra could be just perfect on you. We've also lost count of how often we have read raving reviews on bras that, once Brava tested, are rejected because they just don't do the job for which they are designed.

Hasn't happened yet, and it most probably won't as women's shapes are so variable.
The design of nursing bras for D cup & up women has come along in leaps and bounds in recent years. The current trend for nursing bras to be as similar as possible to an everyday bra, while adding features like plastic flexiwires to make them safe for pregnant and nursing women.
The popular Panache Tango Balconette Bra is a full coverage style with deep sides that encapsulate the bust extremely well.

Get ready for a smoother silhouette for larger cups. This bra has inner slings providing comfortable support, sheer mesh back wings and a satin bow. It fits like a glove, provided the sizing is correct, there are no folds in the material, allowing for a great t-shirt bra that goes up to a GG cup.
The Freya Deco Vibe is a take on the favourite Deco plunge bra. Coming in an assortment of colours, this moulded plunge takes its shape from the original Deco but with a slight twist. There’s subtle lace detailing on the edging of the bra and the centre gore sits slightly higher. Works as a great plunge t-shirt bra on those who are full in the cups.
