Brisbane Big bust beauties can rejoice Brava has arrived. Before Brava, Lin and her daughter Maxine shared a dream of being able to walk into a lingerie store and not be treated like a problem because they didn’t cater to their cup size.
The mother–daughter duo—both blessed with a fuller bust and a basic desire to wear pretty, feminine well-fitted bras—sought to provide a solution where once there was none. “We carry the best of the best: lingerie and swimwear brands who design specifically (and not just as an afterthought) for fuller busts”, Lin Windram said.
Brava has opened its first Queensland Concept Store in the stunning James Street precinct, Fortitude Valley and it heralds a new era of expansion for the company founded in Prahran Victoria, in 2006. Co-Founders and Directors Lin and Maxine Windram said Brava is in an exciting stage, with five stores covering Victoria, New South Wales and now Queensland (as well as an online store: bravalingerie.com.au). With many luxury, fuller-bust brands including Ewa Bien and Ulla new to Australia and exclusive to Brava, women D Cup & Up are spoilt for choice.
The very experienced D Cup & Up bra fitters fit by eye, that’s right, no tape measures. Brava’s compassionate fitters have a superpower, they know your size by sight. Brava is the only exclusively D cup & up lingerie chain in Australia.
Brava Brisbane is not like any other store, they say. When a woman enters, she is taken on a wonderful journey and shown the walls of bras in categories including every day, special occasion, sport, maternity, and a fabulous range of bra-sized swimwear.
“We know how confusing bra sizing can be, so we don’t display racks and racks of bras to sift through, only to find out it doesn’t fit. The Brava fitters will ask a range of questions and bring bras suited to your needs, no wasting time. However, for those who want to browse, each bra is displayed with a plaque highlighting the brand, style, available colours and size range, as well as a QR code customers can scan for more information on our website about the style and how it works on various body types.”
