Elegant and versatile, the bestselling Kimono Maxi is designed with room for your boobs and is ideal for summery days and nights. The V neckline and relaxed cut of the dress are super flattering for Bravissimo girls and the light, breathable fabric is floaty and won’t cling (and yay, there are pockets!).

Nice fitting

Got this dress for holidays. When I got it out of the bag like others it looked terrible, but after a wash and iron it’s much better, love the colour, fits really well and good length.

Took this on holiday, what a mistake! Looked like a rag when I unpacked even tho it had been carefully ironed, packed in tissue paper and last item in case. Won’t buy anything else in this material- pity as the colour and style very pleasing for holiday cruise. Hence low rating.

Poor quality

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

Paid full price for this dress as it fitted perfectly before I washed it (on delicate). It has shrunk on the length and waist making it impossible to wear again. Very disappointed. This is the second dress I have purchased from Bravissimo that has shrunk once washed. As the other reviews have stated it has also faded colour.

Disappointing purchase

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

The dress is lovely, very nice print that accentuates the correct curves. I received many compliments when I wore it... once before washing it. After I washed, following the instructions, the dress shrank a size on the length and waist, meaning I cant wear it any longer. Taking into consideration the price, I expected better quality.

Really Pretty

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I purchased the navy/ white pattern. Was so crumpled when it arrived I found it difficult to tell if I liked it as the sleeves were not sitting nicely at all. I decided to keep it and although it ironed easily I’ve found that it’s not worth ironing it after washing unless I’m wearing it straight away - if it’s to hang in my wardrobe it would need re-ironed so although it goes against the grain I hang it crumpled and only iron just before wearing. Strangely I don’t think it creases too badly while being worn, which is a plus. I also feel that the navy has faded very slightly, even after the first wash which disappoints me as I feel a £70 dress should keep its colour. BUT having said all that I do still love it. I will buy another in an alternative pattern (hopefully in the sale!). I’m on my 5’4” so I had to shorten it - which was very easy using “wonder-web”. All in all I would recommend.

I was a bit wary of trying the kimono dress as I thought that the sleeves would make my shoulders look even broader, but I loved the print on this one and I had a voucher, so it would be rude not to... It was a bit creased when I took it out of the parcel, but it's been packed, so it's going to be a little creased. The kimono sleeves work on me as this is a maxi, and the length balances out the broadness on the shoulders - I'm not sure that a shorter kimono dress would work as well on me. The dress is gorgeous to look at and feels really lovely on - I can waft around in this all summer! I've given 4 stars out of 5 because of a couple of fit issues. I'm only 5ft 3 and the distance between the top of my boobs and my shoulders is shorter, so the dress does feel a bit loose and big around my shoulders and back as it's cut for someone who is taller and longer-bodied than me; that means that it's also VERY low cut, and my bra is on show when I sit down, and it's very cleavage-y when I walk around. The bust space is fine - it pulls a teeny bit but I get that with almost everything, being a 32K. I wore it yesterday and I did have to adjust it a few times so that I didn't show too much. It does crease a bit when worn, but it's not that bad. It also feels a little bit loose around the waistband, but in the summer it's nice to have looseness. Overall, it's a beautiful dress, it feels so light and lovely on, and I love the print. The fit isn't 100% perfect, but it's fine for me. The other colourways aren't for me, but if this dress is released in another colourway that I like, I'll definitely try it!

I love this dress! It is so comfortable to wear. I wore it on what was the hottest day in June - and it was perfect. I was a tad concerned that it might shrink a bit once washed, but it didn't. YAY. I shall be wafting around in this dress all summer. I would like the charcoal and coral too - hmmm... Whaddya think? Should I?

Screwed up and too big in waist

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I had been looking at this style for ages and when I saw the orange (it's not red) was reduced thought I would try it. As previous reviewers have said it arrived looking like a screwed up rag, not a great start. My usual size was massive but I love the colour so tried a size down. Unfortunately it was still huge in the waist and was very unflattering.
