    The 8 Best Bras in the Bravissimo Winter Sale

    The big Bravissimo Winter sale is on, so today I thought I’d make a quick post about my favorite bras that are left! It’s been way too long since I bought from Bravissimo, so all of the great sale stuff has me tempted to put in an order for myself.

    While we don’t think of them as a staple here in the US, Bravissimo has been the backbone of the full bust bra industry in the UK for years now. I’ve always been impressed with their quality and their designs. Bravissimo also features lots of unique products, like basques that go up to a K cup and lots of French-inspired half cup bras that are truly elegant. Sizes are limited since this is a sale but there are still lots of great things left to choose from, even in K cup sizes.

    Bravissimo’s designers have always been masters of classic lingerie designs that aren’t boring, so it’s no surprise that I’m in love with this French inspired Rococo Charm set. They’re currently offering it in a orange/red colorway that is also gorgeous, which is sadly sold out in my size. Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with this lovely lace and classic half cup bra design.

    Another half cup bra, the Demi Diva has been a staple for Bravissimo for years now. Half cups don’t work for everyone, but these make great sexy special occasion bras even if the style isn’t a perfect fit.

    Retro Bloom Bra by Bravissimo

    This print reminds me of a 1960’s art film. It’s cute without being childish and the red lace dresses it up a notch.

    Cherry Fling Bra by Bravissimo

    Bras that have that denim look tend to be hit or miss for people, but I happen to believe that this Cherry Fling set is purely adorable. It’s retro and kitschy but still well suited for everyday wear.

    Betsy Bow Bra in Mint by Bravissimo

    Speaking of desserts, this set reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

    Darling Heart Bra by Bravissimo

    This set is actually old enough that I own it and have nothing but rave reviews of it. It’s held up beautifully (and I’ve worn it a lot) and is full of pure girly fun.

    Satine Floral Bra by Bravissimo

    I adore the Satine cut from Bravissimo, although it does run a cup size or two small. The sale is a great time to try out the sizing to see if it works for you. If it does, it’s the perfect plunge bra.

    Mademoiselle Bra in Emerald by Bravissimo

    This is another take on classic lingerie with elegant lace that really works for me. I also love green lingerie and feel that there isn’t enough of it in this world, so I’d love to see more companies try it out.
