Part of Bravissimo‘s own label range, Satine is a simple satin (surprise!) plunge push up bra that retails for £29. White and silky, it’s more ‘bridal’ than I ever envisaged my wedding lingerie to be (heck my dress isn’t white and silky…), but due to neckline restrictions and it’s super-plunging plunge I had to give it a try.
For some reason I expected Satine to be bulkier than she was – possibly in the model of a Deco. But actually she’s much more lightweight than that, making her a comfortable push-up option for sticky summer nights.
Size wise, the back is firm and the cup ran true to size – and the low, soft plunge was extremely comfortable. This is definitely a bra you’d feel secure in all day, whether that day was your wedding or not.
But not my wedding. Not because there’s anything wrong with her – I think she’s a cracking bra – but HOLY WOW does she give an epic cleavage. It actually reminded me of being 15 and first trying on a Wonderbra – after 14.9 years of being a ‘late bloomer’ I was stuck in the changing room utterly transfixed by these new, enormous FHM worthy C-cups (Yeah. Loool.) Satine has the same effect.
And there’s nothing wrong with that, of course. But the wedding brief is very specific – low plunge yet modest cleavage – so because I don’t want to spend 7th September killing off older relatives, I’ll keep looking…
