Bravissimo Parisian Plume Bra

Bravissimo have several halfcup bras available at the moment and after hearing lots of good things about the Parisian Plume I wanted to try it for myself.

It’s available in Aqua (sale colour – yay!) and Blackberry in sizes 28-38 DD-HH.  I ordered the 34HH Aqua:

Such a pretty colour!  It’s far more aqua in colour in real life than the Bravissimo pics show, which personally I prefer as it’s a vibrant and flattering hue.

The padded halfcups are partially covered with the most gorgeous lavender, green and blue embroidery which incorporates peacock feathers and swirls.  The cups are edged with delicate lavender lace and there are pretty green and blue bows on the central gore and the section where the straps meet the cups.

The straps are half adjustable and are very thick and comfortable.  The band is pretty stretchy and fastens with three rows of three hooks and eyes.

As you can see from the photos above, this is not a style that suits me.  The cups were far too shallow and small and I had terrible quadraboob.  The band was so loose that I felt my breasts were escaping below – considering the fact they were already escaping over the tops of the cups this was quite some feat!  I think I would need two band sizes smaller in order for this style to work for me and perhaps another two cups larger.  Sadly this is not possible as HH is the largest cup available in the Parisian Plume.

I cannot fault Bravissimo on the quality of fabrics used in their lingerie.  It is beautiful – so soft and feminine, but also it feels well-made and as if it would last a long time.  However I must resign myself to the fact that their halfcup designs do not work for me.  Such a pity, but fortunately for me I have the option of Ewa Michalak CH bras instead!

I have reviewed the Bravissimo Moulin Rose, Dotty Spot, Boudoir Beau and Rococo Charm bras on my blog.

    It's pretty color but I don't think you can wear it out side of the bedroom.

      You're quite right – fortunately I returned this one for a refund as on me it was no good at all, even in the bedroom.
