I visited Bravo bras this afternoon to get fitted for a bra for my wedding dress. I used Bravo Bras 4 years ago and was very satisfied, so, I was a little nervous reading some negative reviews, and wondered if things had changed....
I arrived at my appointment and was seen promptly by Judy. We tried on several bras and when we found the right fit, we tried it on with my dress to make sure it worked. I was in an out within 45 minutes, and best of all, I was able to buy the bra and take it home with me. Once again, I am a very satisfied customer!
If you are like me, and can't shop at Victoria's Secret because none of the bras fit you, then this is the place to visit!
MOST HUMILIATING AND DISAPPOINTING APPOINTMENT.
I drove two hours to this store and felt unwelcomed from the moment I arrived. The whole appointment felt rushed and I felt like I was being pushed to buy a bra I didn't like and wasn't comfortable. I never even got to try on a custom-fit bra, even though I specifically asked. I was finally told by an unhappy fitter "We'll we tried" as she handed me the bra I wore in and basically left the room. I have never been so humiliated in my life. To make matter worse; they charge a $25 fee just for making you feel bad during your bra fitting and then kicking you out the door. I strongly suggest looking for other alternatives before making plans to go to this store.
P.S. I would give this store no stars but CitySearch won't allow it.
Best, most comfy bras I have EVER owned!. I have been buying bras from Bravo for 5+ years. I have been through 2 pregnancies and have purchased all my bras at Bravo. I am a 34DD or DDD in dept. store sizing and have have much trouble throughout the years finding a bra that was actually comfortable. After purchasing my first bra at Bravo I will NEVER be going back to underwire bras again. No more deep red lines on my shoulders at night, no back pain, no digging in from the wire under my breasts! I have even fallen asleep in these bras and still not had discomfort in the morning! I have bought from the in-stock selection and had custom orders placed and have had good luck with both. Also, these bras last a lot longer than any Dayton's or Norstrom's brand I have ever had. Not the sexiest things I ever owned, but by far the most comfy! Worth every penny!
Probably look elsewhere. This is "not your normal bra store." It is just plain weird. You need an appointment. There is no merchandise to browse. You go in and they pressure you to buy one of their "specialty" bras. The one they chose for me didn't fit, and was uncomfortable and unattractive. Judy was friendly and excited about her business, but the environment was pretty creepy. The fitting cost $25 (but you don't really get a size since the specialty bras are in some other sizing format). Overall, not a great experience--a little traumatizing, a lot expensive and I HATED the bra they pressured me into.
The Only bra store in the Twin Cities that can fit you PERFECTLY!. I have always had success with Bravo Bras since 1994. Bravo Bras is a specialty bra store that carries more sizes in bras than any department store in the Twin Cities, including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Macy's, and Victorias Secret. Their knowledge, experience and consultation of bra fitting extends into educating women on why it's HEALTHY to have a bra that fits! Judy, the primary bra fitter, has a health care and nursing background that makes her the most qualified and experienced bra consultant in all of the Twin Cities. That's right ladies, if you don't want your breasts sagging prematurely, or if you are pregnant, or have had any type of breast surgury, or need a specialty bra for that special dress, then this is the place for you! They will take extensive measurements and find the right style of bra for ANY breast size. I SAVE TIME & MONEY going to Bravo Bras, because they fit you into a HIGH QUALITY bra that will last WAY, WAY LONGER than those low quality, expensive, poorly made, and poorly fitting bras from the department stores that need to be replaced over and over again! Bravo Bras usually has my size and I have ordered as well, without any problems. And let's face it ladies, there's nothing more important when it comes to looking great, than having the RIGHT BRA!!!!! So go to Bravo Bras and let them help you LOOK & FEEL GREAT!
Be wary. The women at Bravo Bras were friendly and accomodating at the first fitting for a bra for my wedding dress. They assured me that I could get exactly what I wanted and that it would be ordered once I paid. When I went in for the second fitting, I felt rushed and not welcomed at all. They had special ordered the wrong color, said they couldn't get the correct color, and were unapologetic about the mishap. I was really disappointed in their customer service and felt like they just wanted the money. My advice: Only pay for the fitting on your first appointment, and pay in full once you have EXACTLY what you ordered and are 100% happy with it!!!!!
Do not buy if you have to special order!. I needed a bra to wear with my custom wedding gown. Ordered several bras in mid-February and had to pay for one. Was told I could get a refund if I ended up not wanting it. (Note, however: Small print on the receipt says "No cash refunds" -- clearly different information!) By late April, I hadn't heard anything and called to check. Was told it wasn't in, but they would let me know. By the end of May, still no word, and it was now five days before my final fitting! I called again. Turns out the bras actually arrived in early March, but nobody had EVER called me and they couldn't find the bras and would have to reorder. I requested a refund, but 10 days later, that hasn't happened.
Be wary if they don't have your bra in stock!. I went here at the recommendation of a bridal shop. I needed the bra ASAP so my dress could be made for my wedding in 3 months. Bravo told me they would have the bra rushed and that it would be there in a week (normal time is 3-4 weeks). However, 2 weeks and several phone calls later, it still hadnt arrived. They were very unwilling to find out where it was even though they were aware of the situation. I asked to cancel my order and the person hung up on me! I called back and spoke to someone else who said they would cancel the order this was today so I dont know if it will happen. If they have your size in stock, I imagine you wouldnt have problems. However, be wary if they need to order something and you need it by a certain time.
