You may know Oti Mabuse best from being a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, who was the only pro to win the competition two years in a row. In February, Oti confirmed the sad news that she wouldn’t be returning to Strictly and opened up to YOU about making the difficult decision to prioritise other work commitments, of which there have already been many. She’s since gone on to host other TV shows and now, she’s launched her very first lingerie and activewear collection.
Oti has teamed up with Bravissimo to release the collection, which was designed with confidence, comfort and style in mind.
‘Working with a brand whose focus is on women feeling strong, beautiful, and empowered is something I’m hugely proud of,’ Oti said. ‘The range brings together my love of feeling good and looking great in what I’m wearing and Bravissimo has long been a brand I go to for exactly that feeling. I’m incredibly excited to unveil the pieces and see women from all walks of life enjoying the fit and feel of the collection.’
The Oti Mabuse x Bravissimo collection consists of 16 pieces, including three lingerie sets and two sports bras with matching leggings. We know how much of a splurge good quality lingerie can be, especially pieces that actually offer good support, so we’re pleased to see prices start from a purse-friendly £16…

A non-padded, plunge bra which gives a triangle bralette look combined with support from fully lined and stretch lace.
Oti designed this style as an everyday option for darker skin tones, complete with luxurious gold lace details across the cups and gold trims. The super lightweight padded plunge cups give a rounded shape, so this bra works great under T-shirts.
The wired, non-padded cups in this sports bra give a super-firm fit with a rounded shape, while the cups are made from a double layer of fabric.
The non-wired option keeps you feeling supported even during high-impact sports, thanks to the compression fit which minimises movement. The print has been inspired by Oti’s South African heritage and the outer fabric of the bra and leggings are both made from recycled materials.
