Want some good cleavage bra's

(26 Posts)

Atm I'm a 38/40 E cup a lot of bra's available in less common sizes are shit though most of the time.

I need to think of the pricetag too, I really like that gravity defying cleavage look I'm in my early 20's so shouldn't be too hard I have breastfed before but I can't noticed it ruined/changed them too much.

But they naturally aren't stuck on looking boobs , if you get me , my family are genetically slightly pointed down blush so non-underwired, non-moulded don't give me the desired look :'(.

Any help please.

Try Bravissimo although they will prob re-size you.

I have the Deco bra although I have to use with discretion as frankly I am going to knock someone out with 'em if I'm not careful and am approx twice your age. I wear a 30G - I used to wear 38D before they got their hands on me.

It's very comfortable - no nasty scratchy lace - and the cups are smooth under clothes.

Thirty quid but worth every penny IMO.

Ann Summers have some nice bras and you can search for them by size.

I've been to Bravissimo today, I walked in a 30dd and walked out a 28ff!

KillerRack Thu 04-Oct-12 22:16:23

Oh right, I got resized in BHS last year but god knows I wonder if people are different everywhere.

Some of the asda ones are great.

Do places like m&s sell bravissimo?

Go to a small independent bra shop - I live in the middle of nowhere, but we have an old fashioned lingerie shop in my nearest small town - sells Freya bras, get measured by someone who really knows what they are doing, or you could end up being measured by someone who has no experience and doesn't really care.

KillerRack Thu 04-Oct-12 22:55:45

Ok I'll try that thanks,

I don't think I've ever seen a small inde, bra shop though I'll have to get searching.

Bravissimo satine - it's a wonder grin

brighthair Thu 04-Oct-12 23:03:03

In fact because I've just done a load of photos of good/bad fitting bras, here's a pic. It's a moulded slightly padded plunge, I'm wearing a 34J. Looks fab under clothes

SorrelForbes Thu 04-Oct-12 23:54:51

Killer have a look online on the Bravissimo website as they have some great information about how a good fitting bra should look and feel.

Also, have a read through of the recent thread called 'How do you wear your bra'. Can't link sorry as on phone!

SorrelForbes Thu 04-Oct-12 23:55:39

Oh and stay away from M&S and BHS. They are not good at fitting.

Knakard Thu 04-Oct-12 23:56:13

Another vote for the bravissimo deco, 34 ff and it's all I will wear now smile

SorrelForbes Fri 05-Oct-12 00:00:26

I have a deco but whilst its certainly a good, wardrobe staple, the plunge shape isn't ideal for my bottom heavy boobs. sad

KillerRack Fri 05-Oct-12 08:42:16

bottom heavy boobs?

I've noticed boobs that have that natural point downwards tendency need a little more 'push' I currently wear just underwired atm, and I apparently do have cleavage my DP/mam is always like 'you're popping out' 'adjust a bit'/

But I feel really mumsy and flat chested :'(

KillerRack Fri 05-Oct-12 08:42:58

I think I will stay away in future their range didn't inspire me either.

SorrelForbes Fri 05-Oct-12 08:49:55

Sorry, I should have said boobs with more fullness at the bottom than at the top grin.

I find that balcony shapes are much better for me and give a nice cleavage whereas I spill out of plunge shapes no matter how big I go in the cup.

SorrelForbes Fri 05-Oct-12 08:50:34

If you're popping out then you probably need to go up a (or more) cup.

KillerRack Fri 05-Oct-12 08:55:59

Possibly god know what size I am really.

yeah mine are like that a bit Sorrel, But I have issues with boobs I can't look at me without a bra its like *aaadlddsdksldks saggy mess!! to my brain, possibly why I like them hiked.

HazleNutt Fri 05-Oct-12 10:19:20

It's Freya Deco actually, Bravissimo is just one of the shops that sell it and it is indeed a very nice bra.
You can find it cheaper on ebay if you know your size - I usually go up a cup size with Deco.

If possible, you should drop by Bravissimo for a fitting anyway, BHS is not known for their fitting skills. Or you can post our under- and overbust measurements here and we tell you if they were far off or not.

HazleNutt Fri 05-Oct-12 10:20:55

oh just saw that your DP comments that you are popping up and need to adjust - common problem, you need a bigger cup.

StatisticallyChallenged Fri 05-Oct-12 10:35:23

If you are popping so visibly that others comment I'd hazard a guess it may be more than one cup too small. But, if you are very full at the bottom then it might be that a plunge just isn't the right shape and that you need something which is a bit higher in the centre.

SorrelForbes Fri 05-Oct-12 11:15:57

I like a lot of hoikage too! Go on, post those measurements wink

Wearsuncream Fri 05-Oct-12 13:39:55

Another vote for balconette /balcony bra.

KillerRack Fri 05-Oct-12 14:13:39

I need an afternoon to go out and get myself measured leave dc's with DP.

I'm intrigued if I vary in different shops.

StatisticallyChallenged Fri 05-Oct-12 14:25:25

Sizes vary between different brands a little, but it's more that the standard of fitting varies hugely, so m and s for example like to tell me I am about a 36f, when I am a 30h/hh!
