Bravissimo is a UK lingerie company which specialises in selling lingerie for ladies with large breasts. Bras are stocked in cup sizes D to KK. Founded in 1995, initially lingerie was sold by mail order, the company has since opened it's own website, and has also now opened 20 shops within the UK. In January 2011 the company introduced an L cup bra for ladies able to fill between sizes 32L to 38L.

The first Bravissimo catalogues used stock pictures from bra manufacturers. In 1997 the company started using their own models. The first model caused a major stir in the lingerie modelling world; this was an age when bra models were always a standard size 34B, by contrast Bravissimo's model had huge breasts, a then-massive 32E - she was 17 year old Kelly Brook. She would go on to become a major star. Bravissimo have since increased their use of large busted models, and the models themselves have become ever larger; currently their models display FF or G cup breasts, whereas in the early 2000s the models were D, DD or E cups. The last E cup model was 'retired' in 2006, and since 2008 all Bravissimo models are a minimum bra size of 30FF. In 2010, Bravissmo's models were Heather Crook, Lucy Bayet, Olivia Garson,Maria Opuni and Sarah Jackson. Other more recent models have included Laura Catterall and Saffi Karina, and in 2012 Heather and Maria are joined by 2 other models, one who currently remains unknown, the other is Chloe Lewin, who, at 30GG, is Bravissimo's first GG cup catalogue model.

Bravissimo also ran an annual 'real girls' campaign in which normal ladies advertise Bravissimo's wares. In 2009 and 2010 these campaigns starred, amongst others, Jess Edwards who fills a size 30HH bra.

In early 2016 Bravissimo's main model is the 30GG Jessica Greaves, with smaller bras being modelled by Heather Crook, Katja Zwara and Emma Cargill.
