A girl needs a good uplifting experience when she's buying a bra.
Now, if you are a wonderful member of the male species you might like to turn away....after all the trussing of the mammaries is not a major for you. (I hope you stay with it as the rating will be a bit of a bonus for me!!!)
Big bosomed ladies, the well endowed, can have a bit of a bother when it comes to finding the right brassiere. Certainly I am one of those and a visit to a local bra shop, last week, nearly tipped me over the edge.
I've had a lot of upper back pain, around the shoulders, so found a really excellent massage lady and she recommended I go and have a proper bra fitting as that may well have been the source of my daily agony.
She recommended one in our town so off I go, asked for a fitting and told her it was to be more medical than 'pretty'. She awaited outside the booth, curtain firmly pulled across, and handed me in a 34 F. Well, that was not going to do the trick. She handed in a FF. Nowhere near the target. Then she floored me - ''We don't do anything bigger than FF. You will have to try elsewhere.'' I felt my mammaries drop an inch or two in sheer disappointment... what, have to get dressed and go to another store and go all through this again!!
Well, I decided I was not going to put them through this again and off home I went and put into my internet, Bravissimo - seen the lovely girls on the TV with larger-than-life 'boozzies' .... all lacy and the like.
Wonder upon wonder.... not only was there lots of delightfully feminine numbers (bras etc) but there's a lot of information on how to size yourself. A really pleasant experience going through the site and I took the plunge and ordered a 34GG. (Horrors! Never been that size before!)
Bravissimo aims to please the larger boobed woman with lingerie, swimwear,nightwear and clothing and the postal delivery site is really really well presented with its internet site and my delivery was extremely efficient. The underwear comes in bright colours, florals and patterns or plain pastel colours.
Should add here my sister is in New Zealand and works in a bra shop so she and I spent that day emailing on the subject of bras..... she had bought the one I chose, in New Zealand ,for heaps more than I was going to pay... she loved hers and it was exactly the same as my purchase.
So, five minutes ago it arrived. Beautifully packaged in red-patterned paper and a little feminine seal on it - with information what to do if I have to return it and a competition which may see me win Bravissimo goodies for a year and chocolates too!
I tried it on and it is a miracle - it fits and it looks stunning..... I am a convert. Won't buy another bra off anyone in any store. I Love it and so do my boobs.
Now my new booby buddy has lots and lots of bras for fuller bosoms. Some may say they seem a little expensive but when you are big boobed and you can go on line and order your ''over-shoulder-boulder-holders'' and they arrive through the letter box a couple of days later- fitting and supporting your mammaries so superbly - it is worth it.
So mine is Belle of the Fantasie Full Cup range and the little label says -
Excellent support, full coverage, maximum comfort and ideal for everyday use - that's just what I was looking for and after five minutes I'm delighted. There is still the test of time to come but I head off into this experience with full confidence that my bra fits fantastically and looks great. Not sure how many are going to see it!!!! One can live in hopes. Whatever, the look and feel of my new bra, it makes me feel fantastic and that's what really matters.
It cost GBP31 and postage GBP3-50
There is an excellent return/exchange letter on the back of the invoice - gladly I won't have to use it.
Bravissimo is based in Leamington Spa, England and has the excellent website which introduced me to using it: www.bravissimo.com
I am so excited to have a new bosom buddy - let's hope we have a long and happy relationship.
Several hours have past since I so enthusiastically wrote this review.... I left it to see how I feel about my new bra ---- it's going well and I am confident we will be great bosom buddies for a good long time ahead.
Fellas, if you are still with it...... hope you learned something and this has been an ''uplifting'' experience for you!!
It's been brought to my attention that I don't mention the size range: Back -28 to 40, Cup D to L... as it mentions on their site when you place an order.
Summary: Easy, efficient bra buying
