Australia’s Lingerie Blog for Women D Cup and Up

Bra Reviews

We share our results only after the reviewed bra has been fitted on at least 10 willing women and has been appraised by 6 of our fitters, because no bra suits all shapes. Our bra reviews are distinctive because the knowledge and experience of our professional fitters is incorporated with feedback from our customers. Why? Because we find it unfortunate if a particular bra receives a poor appraisal in a review because it didn’t work for the person who writes the blog! Many of the blogs are fun, well written and trusted but that banished bra could be just perfect on you. We’ve also lost count of how often we have read raving reviews on bras that, once Brava tested, are rejected because they just don’t do the job for which they are designed.

Total Score:

4 to 5.5 out of 10
Perfect for a particular shape, however these bras will not suit the majority of our customers.
6.5 to 8 out of 10
Most of our bras will fall into this area, these are great for the majority of women who try them.
8.5 to 9 out of 10
A great choice as these bras rarely fail us.
10 out of 10
Hasn’t happened yet, and it most probably won’t as women’s shapes are so variable.

Elomi Amelia Bandless Moulded Bra

The Elomi Amelia is a bandless bra, meaning there is no fabric band underneath the underwire so the bra band doesn’t roll and cut in. Seamless spacer fabric traps a layer of air within the cups for a beautifully rounded shape without adding volume. A perfect bra to wear everyday as a t-shirt bra. We find that it offers generous sizing in the cups, so if you are in-between sizes we recommend going a cup size down.

Corin Virgina Moulded Bra

Corin Virginia bra is one of our fitters’ favourites - it is perfect for everyday wear; it is form-fitting and ticks a lot of boxes! The Virginia Moulded Bra is ideal if you're looking for something to transition you from non-moulded to moulded bras. It creates a totally seamfree appearance under your clothes, thanks to the ultra-light 3D spacer foam which is a softer approach to moulded bras, allowing a softness that moulds itself to your bust.

Freya Hero Side Support Plunge Balcony Bra

Here’s a bra specifically made for side support - something a lot of fuller-busted women want. The side support in Freya Hero allows your bust to sit closer to your chest rather than under your arms. This essential is a bra drawer necessity as a popular everyday bra. Designed with a four-sectioned cup, adding extreme structure to the fit, you’ll find the side support panel to be very effective.

Ewa Michalak Bibi BM Bra

‘’I want something that lifts me up and pulls me in from the sides." Every bigger-busted woman’s dream is to get a lift and not have their breast tissue irritating their underarms. Many bras have side-slings which bring them facing forward but none have the extreme projection offered by an Ewa Michalak bra. The Ewa Michalak Bibi BM Bra is a non-moulded, fuller balconette style that still allows you to wear lower necklines, it lends itself well to scoop or square necklines. The delicate material is made sturdier by ...

Fuller-busted, but you want something that sits low without having a double-boob effect? The Elomi Matilda is made with gorgeous sheer fabric, yet it’s supportive and close to being a ...

Panache Anya Stripe Bandeau Tankini

Heading to the pool or the beach hasn't always been simple for those of us with a D cup & up bust.
