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 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.

Well, summer is here and our fabulous beaches beckon! How comfortable do you feel in your swimwear? At Brava we can’t help noticing that most women focus on the parts of their bodies they don’t like, which are usually invisible to everybody else. Your body image is a reflection of how you perceive, think and feel about your body. This often has no bearing at all on your actual appearance. It is common for women to believe they are larger than they really are. It’s no secret that all women feel more ...READ MORE >>
Do you fear that wearing a moulded bra will make your bust look larger? This is a common misconception about moulded bras, which in our experience we've found to be untrue. To clear up any confusion, we define a moulded bra as having a seamless cup which holds its shape even after you have taken it off. 'Moulded' describes how the bra has been made, by heating the bra material over a mold to give the cup its shape. Many moulded bras have a very thin even layer of foam, ...READ MORE >>

Our boobs came in quick, which made puberty hell for us and for our poor dad who went bald worrying about all the boys he’d have to fight off his little girls. Being twelve with giant boobs wasn’t easy. I’ll never forget the day I came home crying because Michael Donnelly decided to point ...READ MORE >>
