Have any of you heard of the Brava Bra? apparently it is a thing that you wear for 10 hours a day for 10 weeks and its helps you grow 1-2 cup sizes? Its is being promoted by the harvey medical group and it is under private health care. I am thinking of giving it a go.

I'm not sure about the 1-2 cup sizes. I read an article on this recently and it says that Brava is not suitable for women who want a significant increase in their breast size, but might help someone who wanted to go from a small A to a bigger A (assuming they are willing to pay such a very high price for such a modest result).

The miracle that they call Brava
April 7 2005, 8:37 PM

I must say that to some extent I do agree with Lynn.
I have spent weeks on end in front of my pc, serching for the perfect solution to resolve what to me is a major issue.
To be honest I have never had HUGE breasts, but when I had my first child I went down 2 cup sizes, and that is hard to deal with.
Because it's not so much about being a Jordan type figure, but more about being happy with your body, felling that your partner is happy also.
I have now started taking some pills, which after doing my reserch seemed to be the best one's for me, as well as that I am taking various capsules of various herbs all which are actually found in the breast enhancement pill, I have only been doing it for a week, but I am hopefull.
Besides one must remember that if it was all so easy then surelly no one would actually opt for surgery, but I am believer and i trust that Brava has the potential to increase to some extent your breast size.
I have purchesed my system and will beging the tretmant on the 10th I will let you all know how I get on.

I don't mean to be negative, but a friend of mine used the brava bra and although she did get some results unfortunately the results didn't last very long and she was left with terrible stretchmarks.

Brava Dome Sizes
January 31 2006, 7:44 PM

Lizzy, What size domes are you currently using?? I have been using Brava for a week now and am getting tremedous swelling already. I am a AA cup and want to get to a large B cup. The medium dome size that I am using now are working fine but I am wondering if I need to get the large size for when I get to a B cup. Any info. will help. Thanks!

6 wks on brava!!!
February 18 2006, 5:21 AM

O.k. so now I'm totally used to this contraption, but I still can't wait to be over and done with. It's been 6wks of wearing Brava for 12hrs/day...so far I can measure about 1-inch growth after swelling subsides, and my breasts seem a little rounder too. But I still am expecting more because the difference is still quite slight to me. Just thought I'd get the word out...since I know how hard it is to find very recent boards on BRava. If anyone wants to share their recent experiences with Brava with me, please let me know. Hope this really works and is worth it in the longrun!!!

Desparation
February 21 2006, 7:54 AM

I've never tried Brava, but it's an interesting idea. From what I've read, the odds of it working are about 70/30, and for that price they can shove those odds! I wonder if I could engineer my own homemade Brava? A desperate idea! I do have an old breast pump from when I breastfed, I have a sports bra, and some aquarium tubing, surely the local hardware store has something that could be passed off as domes...!

You really do need the domes! The rest of it you could manage to makeshift on your own, but the domes are essential! Also, stay away from used domes too! I can't imagine selling mine to someone else after wearing them for 12hrs/day every day for 10-20 wks. Good luck!

Re: Brava Bra
February 22 2006, 11:24 PM

i can see that maybe brava works about 70/30. for me 10+hours a day for 10+ weeks isnt worth the average or typical results but IMO its probably the only product so far that has proved it can enlarge the breast with real picutures that are set up in a way that is comparable to plastic Surgery pics are. but they havnt proven that the results are lasting over several years. i read that the company admits that after a few months you loose some growth and then things stabalized but i dont know. i hope the results are long lasting. its hard to to really know how well or effective the brava is from looking at a forum and reading user's posts cause you cant judge the brava until you have spend some time and allowed swelling to go down and see what is left behind. also not too many women come back after 6 months or a year and give a post review on how long lasting the results were so ladies do keep us posed. and good luck.

brava results is a great place to look at 30 b/a pictures and on the brava site there is the Korean brava site with lots of pictures that seem reasonable. my favorite site ishttp://www.dfwibodysculpture.com/brava.htm for b/a pictures but the site admits that some of the women are still using the device so its hard to know how long they have been off the device or know if there is any swelling left in the after pics.

i would recommend the brava if you have the time, money and patience.

Brava & backache
May 12 2005 at 9:03 PM Pam (no login)
I find the brava totally impossible to wear during the day as there's no way I can stay in all day. So I have to wear it during the night and I find it's giving me a terrible backache. Is this a common experiece?




Trudy

Re: Brava & backache
May 13 2005, 9:47 AM

Yes it's common, don't worry about it. Most women experience backache when they first sleep with brava on as it forces the body into a very stiff position. Sometimes the body just gets used to this and the backache stops by itself. If not, you can help avoid any pain by not using a pillow under your head and putting one under your knees instead, as this presses the lower back into the bed. Some women find that putting a pillow under each arm as well is a big help, as raising your arms makes the back's position less rigid and less likely to ache. You can also keep a pain killing spray next to the bed, as if you have problems during the night a quick spray will make the pain bearable enough for you to try and fall back to sleep.

Re: Blisters

Yes blisters are a common experience as well. I got some between the breasts and I guess you're probably the same. The skin there is quite soft and unfortunately it suffers a lot of friction from those Brava domes.

Re: brava info

The most important info you need about brava is simply that it is rare that anyone gets any lasting results. Brava causes swelling of the breasts which is quickly lost after you stop using it.

Re: Blisters
June 10 2005, 9:01 PM

I was worried about scarring because some of the blisters were starting to look serious, so I stopped using the system to see if taking a break would get rid of them. I had thought Brava was working and had seen a definite increase after 4 weeks which was looking promising. However, when I stopped using it all the results disappeared within 2 days, so I'm totally back to square one. My main tip for using Brava is to be aware that once you get a blister it is virtually impossible to get rid of it if you continue to use the system because the domes are so hard on the skin.

Re: Blisters
June 11 2005, 2:52 PM

im sorry, luckily you no it works to some extent :o) apparantly you have to use it for double the time that you got the size you like so they dont dissapear. would moisturising prevent blisters? also do you no if streach marks are common? x

Re: Blisters
June 19 2005, 7:55 AM

I don't know if Brava works to some extent because I don't know if it can do anything to promote real breast growth. As the results I achieved disappeared so quickly it is obvious it was only swelling as other women have noted. Regarding blisters, I don't think moisturising would help. I'm not an expert on this, but I don't see that it would protect the skin at all. Regarding stretch marks, well Brava is pulling and stretching the breasts, so I expect that stretch marks are a common result. A lot of women have said they have had stretch marks from Brava as well as sagging.

What is the verdict on Brava? Do results last or not?



HonEB

Re: Brava & backache
February 5 2006, 4:22 PM

i dont see how anyone can anwer that question.
brava results are usually miniumal so you dont notice the growth unless you are eagerly looking for it. its more of a enhancement and shapeing device then an enlargement device. most women start mentally documenting their progress from the time they first get lasting swelling which is usually alot. once that swelling goes most women are dissappointed so they just dont see the actual results. all they notices if that they lost 80+% of their "growth" which is a big blow for someone and they will usually conclude that the brava doesnt work.

i have seen many b/a pictures from brava wearers. some are noticable and others are not so much. but ive never seen b/a pictures at least 6 months after the wearer stopped using the divice. and it supsiciouly seem that brava hasnt thought about documenting growth 6 months after the wearer stopped using the growth.

the best answer to your question is that no one knows. ive always said that someone that does NBE cannot accuratly judge their own growth because their own bias will come into play. but so far if you take a step back and look at common sense it dosent look too good for the brava system.

glands and skin will stretch and cause growth under tension. but does fat grow under tension? the breast is mostly made up of fat so if the anwer is no then brava probably isnt going to give too much size improvement.

and if brava makers (medical professionals invented and did clinical studies with the brava,) were not smart enough to say, hey maybe we should take pictures 1 year later which is what a surgeon who do with a patient who has had other surgical procedures done, then i really dont have enough faith in this system.a plastic surgeon would take after pictures up to 6 months later when doing a nose job when swelling is gone and you get the best results. so i would think that if the brava makers were doctores and plastic surgeons they would think that if they would take pictures of a nose job 6 months later that they would be smart enough to do the same with the brava system to make sure that the results were lasting.

you see. brava was eager to share b/a pictures at a time when they know for sure that results would easily be seen . no pill company has done that with real people(that i know of). but when it seems that growth may not be lasting, brava just convieniently left out after pictures that document growth at a later date. im really dissappointed right now with the company and their reps. i cant get a satisfactory answer to any of my questions.

the only thing you can do if you are a brava wearer is to be realistic about your growth and swelling. to try to take b/a pictures to document your own progress and hope that your results are lasting and dont worry too much about what others say about the brava. just worry about your own progress.

What a charming product this Brava is! All this talk about backache and blisters and keeping a pain killing spray handy and will the results last or not - it sounds to me as though you need to be pretty desperate to try it. The price seems a bit insulting to the intelligence too.

It does sound very painful and uncomfortable. I don't think i would have the time or patience for it.

I know they say that Brava is the only proven way of breast enhancement other than surgery but it is such a shame that the herbal method gets such a bad name. There is proof through some of the women on here that it is working for them. Unfortunately is seems that there isnt one certain method or pill that works for everyone and it takes effort to persist with the regime and also trial and error.

I am so glad that there are boards like this where we can all share our experiences and help each other keep motivated and growing!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know Brava is NOT proven. They claim to have studies which they conducted themselves and therefore are not independent and are not published anywhere, so this does NOT amount to proof. If they are calling that proof there must be herbal breast enhancement products which could say thay have the same proof.

Has anyone tried or heard of using Brava (natural enhancement) and found if it worked or not?

Brava
March 2 2006, 2:47 AM

Hi, I was a "Brava Woman". Or at least thought I was. I bought this Brava system a couple of years back. When I first bought it, I used it profusely, but it is very difficult to use. 10 hours a day min. for 10-12 weeks. I spent over $1000.00 on it, and am no larger than I was prior to it. (but I have to honestly say, that I was never able to keep up wearing it on a nightly basis for the whole term, came pretty close a few times).

You have to sleep on your back with it on. Also, I have to get up at 5:00 am to get ready for work, there for I had to put it on by 7:00pm in night before in order to get my full 10 hours in. Which is a little difficult seeing as how sometimes maybe a neighbor would drop by or something, this thing is "huge". I am tall and slender and end up looking like Dolly Pardon with it on. It also makes a humming sound when the motor kicks in. When I first starting seeing my current boyfriend I was still trying to use this Brava. One night talking to him on the phone after a while he asked what that buzzing sound was, I was like, "I don't hear anything, maybe it's your phone". After that I would sit with a pillow on my lap while talking to him so I could hurry up and slap it over my chest to muffle the sound.

Other drawback, my back was hurting so much from wearing this, since I don't get to sleep 10 hours a day, (wouldn't that be nice), have to make sure you don't really work too hard around the house because you really can't sweat with it on or you'll lose suction in it.

I was obsessed with the fact that I had spent so much money on it, that I HAD to make it work, in the end I was reading a bunch of reviews on this brava, had found one, which I'm sorry I can't remember what it was called, but one woman had worn it for a year straight, and all her swelling went down after she stopped using it. I ended up thinking that 1000.00 wasn't worth ruining more of my life. So, bought a 6 month supply of Breast Gain Plus, and some Zenmed Benefil cream, seems to be working so far.

Wish I had found this forum a couple of months ago, I had never heard of the Flat 2 Fab program until a couple of weeks ago either. I'll finish out my pills and then look into doing this herb thing, I've read a lot of good results from it.

I'm sorry I've drug this on forever, but I hate to see you go out and spend a lot of money like I did. If I can find those reviews I mentioned earlier I'll let you know the website. (it was not affiliated with Brava)

Re: Brava Questions?
March 2 2006, 4:24 AM

nice story Bekka. but im afraid its a typical brava story. i belive the brava can work for some people but the question is, is it worth the time, money and effort just to barely grow and keep a full cup? for me the answer would be no. i need my sleep and there is no way i would be caught dead wearing that thing during the day when im busy and have to be around so many people all day. plus i wouldnt want anyone to know what im doing. i come from a big family and there would be no way i can hide this gaget from my close family members. Most women who do use it dont come back with exciting news really and they only way to know if this thing really did work is to wait 6 months after finishing wearing it. thats the true test. how much growth you keep after 6 months. i would say pass on the brava unless you have tried everything else and still insist on doing a natual BE method.

one of the reason i feel brava gets such a bad rap from customers is cause its so expensive and time consuming just to get a tiny bit of growth. you start off with a high expectation for this device; you see all the swelling so your expectation gets even higher and then after all that time and money you dont see any growth that was worth the sacrifice. if money is a big issue it may even make more sence to get implants instead of using the brava. anyways hormones still play a big part if success with the brava. women seem to forget that. women forget that cells need to grow and strech tissue to increase breast size. so with tension you need to have IGF present or you would be wasting your time. estrogen may also be a factor. So if you didnt have success with herbs and you start using the brava it may be a good idea to keep that in mind. the herbs may not of worked cause you didnt have sufficient hormone levels and in which case the brava may not be a success either.

I haven't heard of nipples going blue exactly, but women using Brava complain about nipple discoloration so that might be what they are talking about. I've never known what the nipple discoloration exactly meant. but I've often heard it said about Brava. The other thing is loss of nipple sensitivity which Brava causes. I've heard that a lot too. These kind of problems seem common and also persistent soreness of the nipples, that's another thing.

Re: blue boobs and brava
June 19 2005, 7:59 AM

Yes I've heard of that. And the nipple insensitivity that was mentioned. Be careful if you think you are having problems with your nipples, because some women have reported that Brava caused a loss of sensitivity in their nipples which seemed to be permanent, not just temporarily while they were using it. A permanent loss of nipple sensitivity is something you definitely don't want.

No the swelling in the morning has nothing to say, they get much bigger in the morning then they do at the end. Its the size in the evening before you put them on that has something to say. After a couple of weeks (6-9) you will keep some of the swelling and when you have the size in the evening that you want you must dobble the wear time. For example happy about the size after 10 weeks, wear them 10 weeks more to get that size.

Dont think the swelling will be much bigger, the more hour you have them on the bigger the swelling is, try and use them for 16 or more hours and they will be enormous, had a d cup it was very nice. The longer you use them the longer time it takes for the swelling to go down.

Well its not easy to say it is so different from women to women. But i know that women that have breastfeed have best results and it is very important to stick to the program no matter what. I am 25, breastfeed my child for 18months and used to be a c cup and lost almost everything after breastfeeding (a cup) I used the brava system for 20weeks and gained about one cup size are now a 32b. really want to be a c cup again and are now trying herbs but nothing yet. So far only brava has had any effect. If you stick to the program you may expect about one cup size but i dont think it is easy to get more than that. I tried to use it for a seccond time but got an allergic reaction to the domes and had to stop using it after 3 weeks.
good luck growing bobbies. Hug

Re: BRAVA
July 5 2008, 2:24 PM

I couldn't get a refund but, to be honest, the money was the least of my worries I would pay double what i paid for the system to get rid of these marks.

I got them from the increase in size that the system creates when you wear it. You swell up, and this is what gave me the marks. The sad thing was I didn't realise how bad it was until I finished with it. I could see some faint marks appearing and so phoned the company who of course reassured me I couldn't get stretch marks, so I carried on. I also thought I could cope with a few faint marks if I was going to get some growth. Unfortunately when I stopped with the system I retained no growth at all and the marks were far more apparent when the swelling went down for good. It looks like the kind of marks you get from weight loss or something.

On reflection, no-one can really tell you that you won't get marks from something that stretches your skin over quite a long period of time and I wish I'd listened to my instinct. However, the company is totally unscrupulous and would tell me different things each time I phoned. They just tell you whatever they think you want to hear on that occassion.
They told me it takes at least six weeks to retain a bit of growth, and then when that didn't happen they told me it would be nine, and then when that didn't happen 12.

I would be really careful with it - I wish every day I hadn't used it and am now applying retin-A cream, having tried copious other expensive creams, to try and get rid of the marks.

I've got really small breasts and would love bigger ones! I'd feel much more confident and not as self-conscious when wearing summer tops. I wear padded bras a lot, but it's not the same as having your own. I've heard about a breast pump which is supposed to enlarge your breasts. Has anyone ever tried this pump thing and did it work? If anyone has advice about enlarging your breasts without surgery I would be really grateful.

You mean Brava?
January 4 2005, 6:25 PM

Some women have had a bad experience with Brava - abnormal areola, stretch marks, nipple/skin sensitivity.

Personally, I believe that there's no other way to find out than to try it. Unless two people have the same genetic makeup and uses the equipment in the same way (same intensity, length of time etc.), I don't think the outcome would be identical.

Only my thoughts.

Good luck in your search!

I considered using the brava system,until i found some testimonial's on the net from brava users who have experienced a range of problems like blisters,lesions and scarring.You should research this product some more,before you make a decision.

A friend of mine in America told me she's heard of Brava users suffering rashes, blisters, dermatitis, back pain, bad scarring, stretch marks, severe sagging, nipple discoloration, and nipple insensitivity, so I'd proceed with extreme caution if I were you. Also, it's apparently rare to find anyone who has used Brava and has gained a significant lasting size increase.

This all sounds very negative. Let's be balanced about this. There were some women on Richard & Judy who did it and apparently it does work, but you wear these plastic domes 10 hours a day for at least 10 weeks. A bit tedious to put it mildly, but surely better than having an operation because the breasts you get will be all yours with no risky implants.

Breast pump
May 11 2005, 8:53 AM

As a doctor I would urge using any "pump" with caution as incorrect use could damage the breast tissue. In particular I would strongly suggest not using any pump of any kind unless under the strict supervision of a doctor.

Hi.

Well, after having my two little boys, I went from having a perfect pair of 36c's (and I mean perfect), to an appaling nightmare.
My doc said the tissue was damaged beyond repair, other than to have implants...which I can i'll aford, let alone the concience I'd feel knowing I'd blown a couple of grand on myself!

I got a breast pump last week - not saying what brand coz I dont want to look like I'm advertising! (anyway, they all use the same idea I think)!

So far so good! I am using a skin tightner too, but I'm deffinately getting results!

1 problem - It DOES hurt!!! But, So what - I'm not going to look like a monster anymore, and I shall say to him:
"Honey, you may leave the light right on!"

I hope this helps, I just want you to know not to worry, there is (I think) an answer!

Good Luck Gal!

Breast pumps have had their day, expecially Brava. The number of women willing to use things like that is diminishing and will continue to do so. The best days for these kind of products is definitely in the past.

brava blisters and scarring
July 20 2005, 6:53 PM

this is going to sound so DISCUSTING i warn you but i mite no how to combat blisters from brava. for the first two nites i only wore the brava for 3 hours and i already had itchy dry skin and little bubbles of blisters :S then one night wen i got angry with my domes i through them on the floor during the night and they landed sticky side on the carpet. they were all fluffy and lost their stick slightly but still sticky enough to hold suction. I dont recomend destroying your expensive domes this way but i think its the stickness pulling at your skin that makes it rub and blister. or maybe your skin gets used to it. if you continue to wear it when you have blisters they get worse and scar but i let my skin get used to the suction and went for a few days with out it which has really helped. now its really comfy and not leaving my skin sore at all. also when i remembered to use the roll on prep the redness dissapeared much quicker in the morning than before. redness is normal but i think blisters can be avoided

breast pump
July 24 2006, 4:37 AM

Yes I have one of the breast pumps and it does increase ur breast size. The only thing is you have to use it at least 2 times a day and every day to see the results. If you do this it will increase, if you miss they start to shrink again. have to be careful because sometimes the suctioning can leave marks. great way if you have time to increase breast without surgery, just a little time and dedication!!!

I have tried brava
July 24 2006, 11:39 AM

i used it for 20 weeks and went from 32b to 32c
i was seposed to be a rapid responder but it took me 20weeks to gain one cup size and i used for 11-12hours in the week and 14-17hours in the weekend. It takes longer then 10hours a day for 10weeks. i had problems with itching blistering and backpain from sleping on the back. It worked and they are still 32c and i stopped using it for 5 months ago. But i dont recommend it because it was hell, am so glad it is over YES!!

I agree

Don't usually post here, but thought I'd jump in to say that Brava works if you can stand it. I did 15 weeks at about 11 hrs a day and grew an inch, definitely could have grown more if pain (in the ribs) hadn't stopped me. Could NEVER do it again. Back to herbs and still growing.

BRAVA help louise?
January 14 2008 at 12:56 PM nnifnnif (Login nnifnnif)
hey this is to louise mainly. i just wanted to ask you as you are a real woman using brava in england who is very helpful, would you reccomend it?

i would have a boob job if i didnt think it would look stupdily facke on me. im only in uni for two hours a day average so have plenty of time to put into it and also have shrunk in breast size so know i have the potential to be a bit bigger. im just worried about the actualy system and if it could possibly break easily, as it would take all my money at the moment to buy one.

So yeah, was just wondering how effective you feel it has been and how long you have been wearing it? any horrible marks it left, or any useful info.

Dont worry if you dont have the time or feel like answering it all!

Hi, I'm not Louise but I thought I'd answer your question if I can help at all! I've been using brava for about 6 weeks now, and am at uni also. Unfortunately I have to do quite alot a hours at uni and live in a shared house, so wear the system mainly at night. The first week was quite hellish as I found it extremely uncomfortable and quite painful to wear, but once I got past this point I did get alot more used to it. I think it just depends on how dedicated you are. I would never have breast implants as I think they look horrible, and I'm not deeply unhappy with my breasts. I started as a 32C and would like to atleast achieve a D but would be extremely happy with DD Big Grin. If you would be happy with one cup size of growth, then it may be worth trying, whereas if you're looking for massive implant like breasts you're more likely to be dissapointed. I'm planning to wear the system for longer than 11 weeks. Most people who wear it for that sort of length of time only increase by about 1/2 cup size, which is why I've decided to put in more time. It is expensive. I initially bought a used system from ebay, but it turned out to be too small so I had to sell it. I did find that with the used system I got spots and irritated skin on my chest from wearing it, this stopped when I replaced them with new domes- so I wouldn't recommend buying used particulary if you've got sensitive skin. I've had to sacrifice my social life somewhat due to lack of money, and needing to put in the time with brava. It hasn't bothered me too much as I've spent alot of time with my boyfriend instead! I think it helps if you have someones support while you're doing it, as my boyfriends shared all this with me. He can't wait till its over tho, as he hates the fact you cant cuddle easily while wearing it! Also it surprised me exactly how huge the domes are, you can't wear them without it being extremely noticeable to other people. Hope I've helped you a little, there all the main things I've experienced!

brava - marks
January 14 2008, 4:47 PM

Hi

I used Brava and I very much regret it.
This may not happen to everyone, but I was left with marks on the inner part of my breasts that look like white stretch marks. ( I wore it dilligently for ten weeks - and am no bigger)
It really made me appreciate my breasts before!
They were small but at least they were nice and tight and pert.
It also made my nipples sag just a little bit.
The marks really bother me and it has been a year now but I am still vainly applying stretch mark cream in the hope they will go away.
If you do decide to use it, I would take a zinc supplement as this is supposed to help keep skin supple and help collagen production.
Good luck

Katie

sorry....turned into my life story!

Hi,

I would say if you think you can put the time in go for it! If you can't put the time in (and a lot more time than they advertise) then it's not worth spending your money - you may want to look at Bosombeauty instead. If I keep the growth I see in the evenings it'll have been 95% a positive experience and cheap at twice the price. I hope to post on this in 2.5 weeks just after I finished and then again 2 weeks later just to confirm how much was permanent. I've had swelling up to F cup and got no sagging or stretch marks (just stretch marks on my thighs where I used to be fatter). I think it has made my nipples slightly larger but they're only puffed up for about 20 mins after not several days like some people have found and if anything they're more sensitive not less (but they were never very senstive at all to start with). I didn't retain much until week 16-17 even though I'd lost a cupsize due to weight loss only a couple of months earlier. Brava don't advise losing more than 7 lbs, but I've lost 15 (1.5 inches from waist and underbust, about 0.5 inches from hips and thighs) and gained about 1.5 cupsizes. I'm halfway through week 28, averaging 15 hours per night. It definitely gets easier with time, the first week I only slept 1-2 hours per night and then had to go to work - after a few days you're so tired you are suddenly able to sleep - have a mess around with pillows to get comfortable.

If you can wait a couple of weeks I can give you results, I've been very dedicated and bought the system new from Brava. I bought from Brava as you get a warranty if the domes are faulty. I've had one set (narrow large) 28 weeks but not used for about 3 weeks because they are really too small even to use for a couple of hours. I couldn't fill them even after 20 hours for 6 weeks now I can fill them in 20 minutes! I've had the narrow XL for 22 weeks. Both sets are in working order but the cushioning near the armpits is now a bit squashed so they press harder near the armpits. If I do another 6 month session next winter I'll probably invest in new domes but hoping I won't need to. I'm about to do a session with the Bosombeauty - if you're in no rush I intend to report on that at the end of May before having a total break over summer. If I do get good growth from both methods then you may want to consider BB as it's much cheaper and you wear for shorter hours. If you are worried about price it is much cheaper to buy domes only brand new with the seal on from ebay (£350) then make your own airlock from fish tank tubing. I have the smartbox and the airlock and definitely prefer the airlock, it's cheap, less bulky, less noisy, water proof if you want to wear it in the shower and doesn't nedd filters, you also get much stronger suction which keeps the domes on better so you can sleep in a more comfortable position or do stuff round the house rather than spending 15 hours at a time lying on your back! (I work out in mine with no probs). Only downside with the airlock is there's no alarm if the domes fall off overnight but I've never had this happen as they're on tightly and the Brava company actually told me my underbust was too small for Brava and I've since lost more weight. If you buy the system from Brava and grow out of your domes in I think it's 2 weeks they replace them free (call Brava to check), later on if you need new domes they're £200 which is cheaper than ebat but bearing in mind you'll spend £790 on the first kit I think ebay is probably cheaper overall, you'll need to choose how badly you want the warranty.

The most common complaint with Brava is no results or not enough, the more you put in the more you'll get out. Most people who've had good results have gone beyond 20 weeks. Most people have trouble sleeping to start, no social life and get a rash at some point especially if you overdo it. Other rare side effects include: sagging, stretchmarks, increased noticeability of ribs, scars if you scratched too much when you got itchy. If you do less than 8.5 hours one night that counts as a missed night and you have to add 5 days at the end to make up. If you do 8.5-11 hours once per week this is not considered a missed night but doing it twice means you have to add the 5 days.

Good luck with whatever you decide x

I have done Brava in the past and gotten I would say about a half cup of results.  The silicone started wearing so I threw the system away long ago, not realizing I'd want to do it again, or how hard it would be to find the 2nd time around.  I've called many doctor's offices and the doctor who invented it ... the only place I can find it is on Ebay but it is expensive, and the seller only has manual pumping, not the auto pumping.  I don't know if I trust the seller either.  Do you or anyone know where there is a reasonable and reliable place to get Brava?

I would even rent it from someone for a period of time, if they wanted to keep it in the long run.
