Prima Donna Bra DesignPrima Donna Design Descriptions

Who knew creating a bra that is comfortable and provides support for a full figured woman was so complex?

We've written in this space before about how important design and construction techniques are to creating a supportive, attractive and comfortable bra; that some designer bras have more than 50 individual pieces, each performing a specific function.

Hard to imagine isn't it?

This week thanks to the folks at Prima Donna, you don't have to imagine. We can show you what goes into creating a designer bra.

These photos are from the Prima Donna Bra Box. It shows all of the individual pieces that make up their Deauville bra, one of the bestselling designer bras on the market.

There's no doubt this is a luxurious bra.

The important question for you is whether or not this attention to design and detail really result in a better bra. According to BGB customer reviews it certainly does! Here's what our customers have to say.

This bra exceeded my expectations. The moment I put it on, I knew it was going to make my clothes look great, what I didn't expect was the level of comfort. Most underwire bras pinch and bind and poke and twist after a few hours of wear. I put this bra on at 6 AM and don't take it off until 7 or 8. It has ultra comfortable, supportive straps that don't dig into the shoulders. This bra is not inexpensive, but I've purchased three because this is a fantastic investment. I spent years hating my 44H breast size because they looked like a giant mass riding halfway between my chest and my gut. Now, I'm wearing my breasts proudly, high on my chest. I get so many compliments now, it's fantastic! DB from Los Angeles, CA

I've been wearing this bra for several years now, and keep buying them. For the full figured woman, I know no better one for support and the uplifted silhouette it gives me. They last and last, which is great, because of the investment. I'm very pleased altogether with this bra. Lynn the Artists from Washington, DC

I finally found a bra that makes me feel sexy! This bra is not cheap, but it is very well made and I will buy more. It is a worthwhile investment. My clothes fit so much better. Murmaid from Toronto, Ontario

This is a REALLY great bra! I was a little hesitant due to the price, however you do get what you pay for. I will now search out the Prima Donna line whenever I decide to purchase a new bra. Really nice fit. Not fabulous under t-shirts, but under anything else, it's great! KC from Nebraska

I have never owned a bra more supportive than this. I didn't think they existed. It's definitely worth the price. Vistal from Montreal, Quebec

After years of tugging, pulling and wires digging, I have finally found a manufacturer that understands the large "cup" body. If the price is keeping you away, please give it a try. You won't be sorry. Danelo from Richmond, VA
