Bravissimo Rococo Charm Bra

I recently tried the Rococo Charm bra, which is one of Bravissimo's own brand bras.  I had heard great things about this bra - and read many rave reviews on the Bravissimo website - so was excited to try it for myself.

This unpadded bra is available in sizes 28-38 DD-HH so I decided to give the 34HH a whirl.





It's utterly beautiful!  But sadly for me not one that suits my breasts...more about that shortly.


The bra has lovely thick straps which are super comfortable and adjust fully.  The band is reasonably stretchy and fastens with three rows of three hooks and eyes.


The cups are made from a delicately coloured pistachio fabric which is overlaid with black lace.  There are pretty bows adorning the central gore and the section where the straps meet the cups.


Unfortunately, the shape of this half cup bra was completely wrong for my breasts.  The cups were not deep enough and therefore I had frightful quadraboob.  I also found that my breasts did not quite fill out the bottom of the cups - although if I had persevered I might have been able to adjust myself to fit into them better.  

It's clear from the photos that the wires on this bra are far too wide for me so even if it came in a large enough cup I don't think this would have been a goer.

The band was far too big for me and in fact I think I would have needed a 30 rather than a 34 and therefore the cups would have been even smaller on me as a 30HH (largest cup available) is the equivalent to a 34GG!


I absolutely adore the way this bra looks on the model on the website and I know lots of people rave about it.  If you are tempted, why not give it a try, particularly as there are some very beautiful matching suspenders.  You never know - it could be the perfect style for you.

If you like Bravissimo's own brand bras then you might be interested to know that I have reviewed the Parisian Plume, Moulin Rose, Boudoir Beau and Dotty Spot bras on here too.
