Help me find a bra

(18 Posts)

I'm about a 32E/34DD (boob or bust).
I have found the absolute perfect most flattering bra - Lexi from Bravissimo (will post link) and I need more like it (only comes in one colour).

This style suits me because I need the wide cups but my actual boobs are quite flat/shallow if that makes sense.

So I need a plunge style, lightly padded, with a wide plunge. Women with big boobs would find this bra doesn't have enough fabric in the cups to cover /give enough support but this is perfect for me.

The fabric is stretchy which gives a nice lift and as the cups are shallow, I don't end up with a baggy bit at the top of the cup.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance!!

Is this too high?

I have this one, also low cut

These look worth a try - thank you!

As someone who does not “do”white, cream or beige there are some awful bra colours around at the moment. Ilike bold colours and a fee pretty pastels. But l digress; sorry.

Try the Passionata Brooklyn and Manhattan range. Or Wacoal La Femme. Available in the John Lewis sale. The John Lewis filtering is very goid to help you with style, size, colour, but l can’t get link to work. Don’t know if it’s me or them.

Thanls so much and yes I agree - I absolutely love the Lexi bra but the colour makes it look like it's for 12 year olds!

Totally forgot! Ann Summers can often be a surprising and oft overlooked source of quality low cut bras in larger cup sizes. I have 3. Take a look! Reasonable colour choice too. Sizing tends to come up a little small.

I’m a similar shape. I find balconette bras work pretty well. Better than plunges usually although not great for certain tops.
The non-wired Freya Deco is also a good shape.

Have ordered two passionistas and will have a look at Ann summers - thank uou!

Balconette look crap on me - they should be the best choice but for some reason they just cover my boobs so it looks like I don't have any! Maybe I've just picked a couple of duds - will take a look at the one you recommended, thanks!

Have you tried any half cup bras? Freya has a few.

StarlightLady Fri 19-Jun-20 12:20:57

@KatharinaRosalie - A lot of the Freya range are very deep in the middle for V neck tops. I don’t mind straps showing but l draw the line at the centre of the bra being on show. We may as well leave our tops off smile.

Have you tried the Bravissimo Satine?

Tonii1985 Fri 19-Jun-20 13:51:53

I had high hopes for Satine but it looked terrible on me. The top of the cup looked baggy - which I know suggests I should go down a cup size but then the underwire is too narrow. I've just got weird boobs.

Try eBay for over makes and left over stock....and maybe a bargain too!

JesmondDene Fri 19-Jun-20 16:21:10

Something like this....

Good tip, thanks!
