One of our most well-loved dresses, Jessica is a wrap style that shows off just enough (but not too much) of your fabulous décolletage! The straight skirt gives it an elegant and sophisticated look.

I bought this based on the color, and it really is a perfect red, so bravo on that, Bravissimo. That said, either it was far too small or it was a really bad design, because it clung well, but the darts at the front looked painted on me. The fabric was really heavy and so the darting felt bulky and awkward even though the cut was flattering overall. I think it was just too thick of a fabric overall. Not for me and so I will be returning it.
I wanted to dress to fit me like it does the model, but sadly, it doesnt. The top part fits nicely, although it feels like a tweak here and there would have made it perfect. The bottom part however, is just a little bit off. The lining is quite tight over widest part of the hips, and I have narrow hips, while the red fabric has excess fabric at this exact point. This results in these two odd 'bumps' over the hips. They can be taken in, but still... The dress seems a bit shorter than in the pic as well, and it doesnt give me the lengthening effect I had hoped for. It's quite heavy, which is the reason I wont be returning it as the postage from South Africa will be too expensive.
This dress is so beautiful to wear. So comfortable and pretty. I feel so confident and supportive in it!
I tried this dress on in the frosted berry and the full skirt version in the blue. The frosted berry is gorgeous and very true to size. However the full skirt version was awful and far too small! This frosted berry version clings in all the right places and really shows my figure off. I can’t wait to wear it out and about
I have the blue spotty Jessica and I LOVE IT!!!!! So I was thrilled to see it in red. But I am so sad now I’ve tried it on and it’s all wrong. The lining is too much. The blue one doesn’t have lining. It’s so much more delicate. This red one feels heavy, the seams are too bulky, the dress is a pain to get on and off and the lower back doesn’t hug as flatteringly. What a damn shame! Bravissimo! Stop messing with a perfect design!!! I’m properly gutted!
I'm a big fan of the Jessica dress, it's very flattering on an hourglass figure. It's nice to have to have it in such a vibrant red colour - it makes a great evening dress.
Agree with earlier reviews - the Jessica (navy w/tan spots) was a wardrobe staple - the material was of good quality and despite regular washing, always came up well. This one is the same fit and cut but the material is flimsy and the mark effect is a bit dated. It will suffice for work but it’s not the best version of the Jessica!
I have a few of the Bravissimo dresses. I got this one in the 14 and it looked nice but was a bit loose on the waist so I re-ordered the 12 and it was just awful. The bust was super tight and it just bagged off me all over. There is a difference between having big boobs and having plus size measurements all over
