Using the term 'DD cup' excites the boys and frightens the girls. But mention you are a G cup in polite company and people will look at you in disbelief. At Brava, it's not unusual to fit a woman who says she is 14D into a 10G bra. It happens all the time!
Let's get this straight - your bra should be like your best friend. If your best friend doesn't support you, pokes you constantly, and is just a general pain to be around, then you probably need a new best friend, and the same goes for your bra. Your friendly, everyday underwired bra should not be hurting you - at all!
Heading to the pool or the beach hasn't always been simple for those of us with a D cup & up bust. Popping along to the local department store and being able to pick something off the rack is the stuff of dreams. These days fuller-busted swimwear brands are offering a lot more to cater for curvy D+ cup women, with on-trend designs and stunning patterns... but if you can't go...
I love you. How many times do we say this to others? It rolls off the tongue easily, meaningfully and truthfully. How often do you say it to yourself?

Imagine walking along the beach or across town on a hot summer’s day with an open back dress, letting the breeze cool your skin. Until you lose your sense of calm as that same breeze reminds you that you’re wearing the industrial 'nude' bra that isn’t as inconspicuous as its colour represents
Do you love the latest plunge style fashions but struggle to find the support you need without ruining the sexy neckline?

We’ve put together a list of our favourite plunge bras to create a staggering shape, uplift AND support in those plunging dresses and tops.
The Elomi Amelia is a bandless bra, meaning there is no fabric band underneath the underwire so the bra band doesn’t roll and cut in. Seamless spacer fabric traps a layer of air within the cups for a beautifully rounded shape without adding volume.
Have you been wearing the same bra size for years? If the answer is yes, then you have good company.

Gone are the days of dread when only ‘granny’ bras were on offer. If you wear D cup and up and love fashion-forward styles, Freya have you covered. Smaller back bands to bigger cup fashion lingerie, it would be an absolute sin for us not to share these styles with you and your besties.

This essential is a bra drawer necessity as a popular everyday bra. Designed with a four-sectioned cup, adding extreme structure to the fit, you’ll find the side support panel...
If you find underwired bras uncomfortable, you’re not alone. At Brava, we know the reason behind an uncomfortable wire is usually the wrong bra size or style for your shape, so we will ask you to try a few we recommend as its most often a fit issue that can be corrected. After this, if you’re still uncomfortable we’ll happily bring you a wire-free. If you’ve been avoiding...
