Bravissimo Boob School!

I wonder how many words I can use for boobs during this post…

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to visit Knockers HQ at Bravissimo’s flagship store in Oxford Circus with the lovely Betty from Tales From Betty Bee Towers. As well as being an enormously fun day full of adorable cakes adorned with bra faux pas, giant school pencils and a lot of boob orientated gesturing, it was extremely educational too.

Bra afficiandos, Bravissimo have launched the world’s first Boob School to educate women on all things boob! They believe every woman should feel brilliant about their lady lumps and want to teach women how to look for a perfect fitting bra, because not only does it feel comfortable but it has the power to change the way you look and feel about yourself. The launch of Boob School rather nicely coincides with the 100th anniversary of the invention of the first bra! My boobies thank you, creator of the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder!

Bravissimo’s research found that there are seven common faux pas that the women of Britain are making. 

All these faux pas were placed around the beautifully laid out room and it was such fun wandering around to see which ones applied to us! Apparently 4 out of 5 of us are wearing the wrong bra size and us with bigger tatas are the worst for it. We have no problem changing our dress size when we lose or gain weight but very few of us think to get re-fitted for our bras. Whhhy? Look after your jubblies!

It was a wonderfully put together day; so much care and attention was put in from the giant hopscotch to the incredible, enormous bra development timeline. You can tell these women truly love what they do, their enthusiasm and passion is infectious.

There are a two ways in which you can become a Boob School Graduate. You can find your nearest Bravissimo store and have a fitting by a bra expert or you can use their magical Facebook app. Your boobs are important, take care of them!

Betty and the boob cakes!

    I've been purchasing my bras from Bravissimo for some years now – after Dickins and Jones closed down on Regent Street where my sister used to work in lingerie, the only other place I knew that would cater for a 36HH was Bravisssimo. The only gripe I've got is that their Alana bra which fits nicely but doesn't last very long – and at £26 a go it can get rather pricey, especially if you have a limited budget. However Bravissimo does have a good range of sizes and styles to suit a range all tastes.

    All the above fitting issues, I've known about for some time now (via my sister) and it is great to hear that Bravissimo is passing on that knowledge to women who are not aware of this. Having said that, there has been many occasions where I've seen all of the above fitting issues on women at some point or another and have had to bite my tongue quite a few times, as I've wanted to tell them get a proper fitting bra!!

    I invested in a Bravissimo Bra around 5 years ago & it's lasted so well. I was wearing a 34/36D & it turned out I should be a 32E. I loved that! It's so flattering & comfortable to wear. Great post, I enjoyed the diagrams ! x

    I obviously need some boob schooling because I always end up with the quadraboob. To my defense, I have different brands of the same size that don't create the extra boobage. Eventually I'll get it figured out or maybe just join a circus as a 4 boobed sideshow act.
