Bravissimo ClothingNotch Neck Ponte Dress


4 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 5 reviewsRead all reviews


Yay - a knock-out red dress designed with boobs in mind! This striking ponte dress can be worn to work or to party, and the lovely wide straps means no bra straps will be peeking out. The notch in the neck is lined with plastic to ensure that it holds its shape and won’t fall in on itself. We hope you love this bright red to bring the heat (if the weather fails to!)

Really stunning dress

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

What can I say? The dress is lovely and not even really expensive. I'm normally a 12SC but they only had the 14 Curvy. It fitted fine and TBH I probably benefit from it being slightly looser on my tummy. It's stunning. I'm not sure where I would wear it, but I'm tempted to keep it.

I ordered it in 8RS. The fit was really good around my 30HH chest, but I did feel that the cleavage was too high and conservative; I would’ve preferred a lower, round cut. The dress was too large for my 67cm waist and seemed to over exaggerate all the lumps and bumps and it just looked really unflattering. I’m 160cm tall and I found the length really good as it covered the knee. I did not keep the dress. Please start making clothes in size 6.

Great shape, great colour and wonderful material. Really comfortable to wear, definitely a dress to be noticed in, but tones down well when worn with the back denim jacket. The plastic bit at the neck works really well. Not sure that this is a work dress, but a great party dress, thank you Bravissimo.

Fantastic dress - but slight fabric/design flaw in the notch

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I bought this dress a few weeks ago. It is a fantastic fit, and a beautiful shape. I felt great in it. I have worn it to two events and have received so many compliments. It is very comfortable. The V at the bottom of the dress makes it very easy to walk in, but exposes the lower thigh when you sit - not a problem if you are wearing it for a meal and your legs are under a table, but for a drinks or theatre do it might not be great. One flaw that I would like to point out is the wiring in the notch. It gives it a fantastic shape. However, I put the dress through a gentle 15 minute wash and when it came out, the wire had poke through the material at the base and both points of the V. The wiring is white, so I had to sew the dress to conceal the white wiring. When I got in last night, I noticed the wire looks as though it is going to poke through another part of the material. It's really disappointing- it is a fabulous dress and I had hoped to get loads of wear out of it.

Fashion guru..

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

My 26 year old son is my fashion guru, I always ask him what he thinks of my new indulgences as I know he will be truthful. After losing 5st in weight I treated myself to a dress in my fav colour and I design I always wanted. I ordered an 18 RSC as I didn't think it would fit. When it arrived I was so excited, I slipped it on with ease, to my surprise, but it was too big in the hips. Right, ok, so I tentatively ordered a size 16 RSC, but kept hold of the 18. A few days later my parcel arrived. I picked it up, ran upstairs and pulled it on. I felt it was a little snug, but it fit. I could always throw on the spanx. I heard my son going down so I called to him to wait as I wanted his oppion of my new dress...deep breath and tentatively walked out on to the landing. My son looked up and said "bloody hell mum, you look stunning".
