Bravissimo Moulin Rose Bra

Whilst looking through the many bras available on Bravissimo recently, the Moulin Rose caught my eye instantly.

It’s a padded halfcup bra (although some of the reviews say it’s more like a balconette or full cup) and is available in sizes 28-38 DD-HH.  I tried it in a 34HH:

What a heavenly-looking bra!  The foam cups are a delicate powder pink on the inside and are printed with a gorgeous lace design on the outside.  The tops of the cups are edged with deep pink velvet on top of soft black lace.  The central gore and section where the straps meet the cups are adorned with pretty bows in the same velvet material, and the velvet continues along the front of the straps.

The band has reasonable stretch to it and fastens with three rows of three hooks and eyes. The straps are nice and thick for comfort and are fully adjustable but half of the straps are covered in the pink velvet so it would be necessary to force the clip over it if wishing to tighten beyond halfway.

Sadly, the cups were too small and shallow for me and as you can see from the pictures I got really bad quadraboob.  Also, the band was too big for me so ideally I would have needed to go down at least one band size and up two or three cups.  Unfortunately this is not possible as the largest cup available in this style is HH.

I definitely found this bra more supportive than the Parisian Plume and Rococo Charm I tried but it just is no good for me overall.  So far the Dotty Spot has been the best Bravissimo own brand bra for me, but the Boudoir Beau comes a close second.

This bra is stunning and feels like a really luxurious item of lingerie.  I highly recommend giving it a try as it could suit your breasts better than mine.  And if it fits you, I will be extremely envious!

    Your boobs are just too epic for this bra! It is a lovely bra though, I was also really sad that it didn't fit me at all. On me it seemed to run a little smaller than the other half-cups which I guess is due to the fabric stiffness/padding shape. I wish they would use this print in another bra so I could have it 🙁

      Agree with everything you said! Especially the part about Bravissimo making a bra in a different style using the same fabric as the Moulin Rose. The velvet edging was a particular favourite of mine. We can but hope…

    That is a beautiful bra. It's not available in any stores here would love to try it. The shot from above is funny though.

      It really is a lovely bra – just way too small for me :-(Bravissimo deliver worldwide so if you can work out your size it'd definitely be worth a try x

      I brought this bra and love it, but could maybe do with a J, rather than a HH too. It's livable with though, with the odd reajustment though.

      Lucky you Nicola – I would definitely have kept this bra if it had fitted 🙂
