This jacket fits like a dream, is the perfect length and is made of gorgeously silky fabric. It isn’t particularly thick or waterproof, but it keeps me warm and keeps the wind out, and I don’t think any jackets of this style are waterproof. Unfortunately, within a few days of wearing it, fluff started to appear on the outside of the jacket, working it’s way through the fabric. Generally it brushes off easily, but a few times when I’ve tried to remove the fluff, larger pieces have been pulled through, making it look like thick, white, cottons are sticking out of the coat. I can cut these off and work the ends back through the fabric, but I can’t help thinking this shouldn’t be necessary on such an expensive jacket!! I won’t return it though, because I love the fit so much.
I tried this on in store and was disappointed that the zip broke straight away, thought maybe it was too small (although it did fit perfectly) so I tried a bigger size again the zip broke, I'm not sure if this is a problem with this jacket or was I just unlucky.
The colour is great. I bought it one size bigger, so it will fit over a bit more layers. In addition, the 14 had shorter sleeves, the 16 was better for me 5’11 and long arms. It fits perfectly and is not bulky in any way. It is easily stowed in a bag during travel.
I saw this jacket and liked the young, fun feel due to the bright colour. I love it. Great fit, long enough in the body and arms due to having enough space for my boobs without adding too much bulk - a jacket I can actually stand up straight in! Perfect for chilly mornings outdoors. Keep up the fun brights please Bravissimo.
I had eyed up this coat online since it was added to the website, but waited until going into London to potentially buy it. I loved that it was bright red and not just black or blue. However, when I tried it on the first thing I noticed is how thin it was and also that it wasn’t lined... an ongoing issue of mine with some Bravissimo coats or jackets. It’s also not waterproof, pretty annoying when living in England. I was really disappointed especially with the £80 price tag. I must admit it did fit like a dream like Bravissimo clothing always does, but I just couldn’t push myself to spend that much when it will probably only get used until November when the weather will inevitably get colder. Would potentially buy it if it goes in the sale in my size.
I was so excited to see this coat released, I've had a few blazers and denim jackets from bravissimo in the past but have never found the coats fit me that well. The jacket is a great fit, it feels really light to wear and doesn't add bulk. Perfect for the autumn. I might have to buy the grey one too!
Before buying this jacket, I was told that it was shower proof and perfect for rainy weather. Unfortunately it is not actually water proof. It is water resistant, but in real rainy weather, it does not hold up. I just rang a cup of water out of the shirt that I had been wearing beneath this jacket after waking in the rain for an hour. Other than that, it looks cute and the fit is pretty good. It is a little bit bigger in the hips than I’d like it to be, but if I sized down any more, I probably would not fit everywhere else. Overall, cute jacket, but I wish it was actually waterproof.
A coat I can wear which has room for my boobs but is fitted too. So I don't look like either a sack of spuds or like I've been shoplifting and shoving things down my front! Long enough at last, light, fitted and comfortable. If you could make this in down not polyester it wouldn't be so hot hence the four stars. Please make them in other colours too. And if you can see your way to making a Goretex walking jacket I'd buy that too.
