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.

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.

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 ...

Elomi Matilda Plunge Bra Review

Fuller-busted plunge bras are hard to come by, so the release of the Elomi Matilda bra was widely rejoiced by our customers and fitting team! Matilda is one of few Elomi bras that start in a size 10 back; from a 10GG up to a 22G, the Elomi Matilda bra has become a firm favourite for many women. 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. Popping along to the local department store and being able to pick something off the rack is the stuff of dreams. These days fuller-busted swimwear brands are offering a lot more to cater for curvy D+ cup women, with on-trend designs and stunning patterns... but if you can't go past classic black swimwear, you need to meet the Anya range! The Panache Anya swimwear range is one of the bestsellers ...

Freya Fancies Longline Bra

For years, we've swooned over Freya Lingerie's brilliant longline bra creations. We've covered previously on the Bra Fitter why we think that longline bras are the bees knees, and that every D Cup & Up woman should own one. However, they were often difficult to find as Freya would only bring out these fantastic longlines in their seasonal fashion ranges. Finally, after years of waiting, they have added the Freya Fancies Longline Bra to their ongoing range, and we ...
