I never thought I could find a denim jacket to fit. They would either not do up across the bust or would be too large on the waist and be unflattering. After seeing the denim jacket in the catalogue, I decided I'd give it a go. I wasn't hopeful. However, after trying on the 16RC in the shop, a quick look in the mirror assured me it was a great jacket. I can do it up and the shaping gives a great silhouette. I'm really pleased to have a casual jacket that's not too big just so I can do it up but is a flattering fit.
I have tried on many denim jackets in search of one that fits. This is one of the best I have tried on. I am very particular about finding a jacket that fits around my bust and fits properly on the back. The bust fit is very good. The back had some gaping. I took the jacket to my tailor and an easy seam in the center of the back took care of the problem. I love the result. The jacket hits me perfectly at the hip and is great with dresses and skirts. On my body type it is a little short to wear with pants. (I have learned that for my body type, I need to keep both styles of jackets on hand-one for skirts and one for pants.) The color is very nice -the denim is a classic blue color. The jacket will be a staple in my wardrobe. This was part of my first purchase from Bravissimo and it was great!
ordered this in 10 RC after reading other reviews. I am 32F bust and normally a size 12. I have a small waist so can end up looking much bigger than I am if something doesn't fit round the waist. It's a boxy sort of style so the waist was large on me. I am now ordering 8 SC. I am hoping this will be smaller on the waist but will fit my bust. The jacket ended at the top of my hips. I am 5 ft 3 inches.
I’m 30HH with 67cm waist and I ordered this jacket in 8SC black. The jacket was massive and looked really unflattering so I’ve had to return
My jacket arrived kind of ... puckery in the boobs, which was not super flattering and made it look weirdly too big. However, after a go with a steam iron, it is great. It's definitely roomy in a flattering and stylish way. The jacket has more buttons than is maybe my preference, and I prefer a thicker denim like the older Levi's jackets, but I like buttoning my jacket more, so four stars :)
This is a really nice summer jacket which is made from a soft denim and I am delighted with. I am usually a size 14 curvy which is what I purchased. What I also realised (once I started wearing it) was that the buttons weren't embossed with 'Bravissimo' which I was quietly relieved about, they just has a simple pattern on (I know many jackets with these buttons do state their make).
I consulted the fit person online before I purchased and after reading the reviews. I informed her of the clothes I've been successful in such as the zip front dresses and she suggested I go with my typical size of 18 SC. It gives me the look I was going for but snug in the shoulders and barely buttons. If you can size up, size up!
This is the first denim jacket I've ever owned and I really love it. I love the fitted look and the fact that it's not at all boxy like regular denim jackets. I like the fact that it's short, it comes down to the top of my hips and the arms aren't too long like every other jacket I try on! My measurements are on the cusp of curvy and really curvy and I bought really curvy, it buttons up comfortably and I can still move my arms without it pulling over the chest. Really looking forward to wearing this!
