Yes it costs £70, however

its sexy
it uplifts my 36G to a level I have actually never seen, EVER
Its way way better than my shitty bravissimo that hurt me

ladies, well worth the investment

when I have to take it off to wash it far too rarely, i feel wrong

What style is it? I just spent £55 on a Lejaby bra that seemed fine in the changing room but after wearing for an hour cuts into me like cheese wire. Total waste of money. So I would pay anything for a bra that is comfortable but effective!

its a simple black underwire

I had EXACTLY same experience with Braviss as you had with Lajaby

try them Freshasa, I have been looking for a decent bra for 2 YEARS

Hi, was it a Rigby and Peller own brand? Did you order off the Rigby and Peller website?

shop, instore. sorry! But online ordering too risky

Perhaps I'll have to wait until I go down 'that' London!

shit they are only London, or Cambridge

in the meantime get a comfortable bustenhalter boulder holder !

Totally second that. Last summer having the worst time ever at work I marched in to their City branch and (a) was treated like an actual human being who deserved a decent bra, (b) found a t-shirt bra (Marie-Jo) that doesn't have its own silhouette/postcode and makes me feel comfy instead of like a Valkyrie, (c) got a lovely R&P "everyday" underwired lace. I really need to do some spreadsheety budgeting stuff to work out if I can nip in again soon.

Incidentally have they got better since 5-10 years ago? I know the ownership changed and the new bras seem a bit more cleverly engineered and a bit less "hoick them up, front and centre" than the ones I got in a dept store the first time I learned my actual right size.

Thirding it grin
R+P rock.
Got mine (simple black 34G) from ebay for 39pounds - they don't come up often, but are worth looking out for.

I risked it and bought sight unseen and untried-on.

I have to concede though that it was Bravissime that got me over my DD+ denial grin

Black 34H and black 34G on ebay just now...

These sound wonderful but way too many £££ for my budget. Wouldn't buying a used one from eBay mean that it has stretched, etc?

Another R and P fan here - they are excellent. Always go there.
