Ruby wearing Elomi Matilda

This blog has been guest-written by Ruby; a Brava customer who starred in our ElomiXBrava along with her Mum - Katherine. I had so many bad bra shopping experiences before discovering Brava. I would always come out with the wrong size and feeling discouraged and broken. After a while I just started to think this is going to be it. This is what bras are going to feel like. When my sister first told me about Brava, I was 14 and I couldn’t believe it was true. I expected ...

This blog has been guest-written by Annabelle; a Brava customer who starred in our ElomiXBrava campaign.

This time was different. I came across the opportunity at a time when I ...

This Girl Can - VicHealth

A phrase we often hear when fitting a woman into a sports bra is ‘I know I don’t look like I work out’. What does fit and healthy look like? It’s saddening that many women do not participate in healthy activity because they are uncomfortable with their bodies and feel exposed with a bigger bust. In a recent survey, 55% of Brava customers surveyed said their breast size has prevented them from participating in sport*. This is a confronting response when you consider the adverse effects on your health and fitness. The ...

Do you remember your first time? Did your mum take you? Or did you go alone? Bra shopping can be a lovely ritual between mothers and daughters. Your daughter’s breasts are a part of her development and she needs support and understanding about how her body is changing. Changes to her body can almost happen overnight, and it is crucial to prepare her for it.

Have you been wearing the same bra size for years? If the answer is yes, then you have good company. Many of us have an idea of our bra size, but often we pick up the same bra size that we have always worn without taking into account body changes such as weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, menopause and various hormonal changes. In a recent survey of our customers, we discovered that 95% of women visiting Brava for the first time were wearing the wrong bra size. There is such a variation in sizes between ...

Our bodies are so varied, everyone is shaped uniquely. Bigger-busted women can face common challenges when bra shopping, but there are some beautiful bras designed especially to cater to D cup & up women.

Bra myth: DD cup is huge!

Using the term  'DD cup' excites the boys and frightens the girls. But mention you are a G cup in polite company and people will look at you in disbelief. Many women think they are D cup and always seek that size. But when they submit to a proper fitting, D cup isn't even close. At Brava, it's not unusual to fit a woman who says she is 14D into a 10G bra. It happens all the time! Afterwards, she looks and feels much better but is often shocked (and maybe ...
