While shopping at the NYC Bravissimo shop with the Hourglassy team, I tried on the Mesh Insert Top in Black/Gold, size US 8 Super Curvy. This is such a fun top for the holidays, with gold metallic polka dots on a mesh top. It could be paired with some festive colored pants or skirt or even black bottoms.
The top fit nicely across the chest and the sleeves were not too long for my petite arms.
The length was perfect and ended right below my waistline – the way I like to wear my tops. The v-neck was rather low for my liking but the sheer material over the top gave it a hint of cleavage.
I generally wear a US 8 Super Curvy and this top was a perfect fit. I am 5’3” and on the day that we went to NYC, I was fitted as a 32J (UK) in a Bravissimo Millie bra. This top is a great find to add a hint of gold into your holiday party wardrobe.
Animal/leopard print always seems to be “in style” but it is a trend that I am loving right now. I am happy to see that Bravissimo is on trend with the Brooke Top. The black on black velvet mesh top is very slimming and feels so soft.
The size 8 Really/Super Curvy top fit snug across my 32J (UK) chest with no pulling like most non-Bravissimo tops do. The sleeves were comfortably fitted. While it is hard to see in the picture but is evident on the model online, there was some odd gathering at the hips. I don’t have well defined hips, and sometimes Bravissimo tops do have excessive material in the hip area, which sometimes creates a minor fit issue. This top was no exception. This is unfortunate because the top fit snugly everywhere else.
While Bravissimo includes this top in their party collection, the velvet is not too shiny. It could be dressed down to be worn on casual weekend outings.
