4.1 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 13 reviewsRead all reviews


Leila has become a Bravissimo girl favourite, with lots of you telling us how special you feel when you’re wearing it! It’s ultra-flattering because there’s extra room for your boobs and the straps are thick enough to cover your bra straps. This wrap style is fully lined, and the ruching is super-flattering over your tummy.

Anniversary Dinner Dress - Love it!

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This was my first purchase from Bravissimo and I LOVE it. I always have the hardest time finding a body-con dress that fits my chest (I wear a 32FF). The dress is thick enough that it hides all lines from underwear and the top provides support and coverage without sacrificing sexiness. I wore it to an anniversary dinner and I'm already looking forward to wearing it to a friend's wedding. Love the length, coverage, fit and style!

I feel sensational

Having struggled with dresses to fit and body image all my life, this dress is a game changer. From the second I put it on, I felt amazing. The ruching to the sides helps you forget about worrying about a completely smooth silhouette. It’s a beautiful thick stretchy fabric which is very forgiving. The fit at the bust is amazing and I feel like Jessica rabbit in it!! I wore it to a event with my other half and he just kept complimenting me all night. Thank you for making me feel like $1million!

Not for me

Thought I would give this style a try based on the good reviews but I don't find the ruching at all flattering. Also the darts are in a really strange place and look very odd when the dress is worn. Good fit otherwise and nice material but I would not be happy wearing this dress so it will have to be returned sadly.

So disappointed!

I was so looking forward to trying on this dress in red for an upcoming party. What a let down!! I tried a size 10 really/super curvy which fitted so well - except for the extra nipples I had slightly facing outwards. The darts really didn’t go far enough onto the bust. I tried the next size down and had exactly the same problem. If the bodice has been single fabric I might even have taken the dress and resewn the darts myself but as it’s a double layer that would have been really complicated. Obviously I didn’t buy it although I absolutely loved it. Looking back at the reviews I see that others had the same problem. Perhaps the seamstresses wanted to leave early that day!!!

a date night dress that fits!

I am a new mom, with a chest that has gone from a D to an E. It has been difficult to find clothes that are forgiving of my new figure and can fit my new chest. This dress has slimming style with plenty of chest space, and straps wide enough to hide your bra straps. I only didn't rate as a 5 star because it is a little long on me (5' 4"). I would prefer just above knee length, this is just below.

I love this dress

I saw this in blue and red in a store. Looks nothing on the hanger, and neither colour is really one of my favourites. Then I saw, online, that it comes in black. I ordered immediately and it arrived today. I had high hopes for how this dress would look and I was in no way disappointed. It is simply stunning. It’s lines are flattering and it is a very sexy dress without being revealing. It fits beautifully and I cannot wait to wear my LBD as soon as possible. Now....somebody mentioned a long sleeved version ..... ?

Oh so amazing!

I really struggle with clothes to fit. Even with this line, the larger Really/Super Curvy the shoulders are too big or the overall fit not good and thus not flattering. I was really apprehensive about this dress but leaving for a trip so ordered it. It's so flattering, so amazing, the best dress ever in my book - especially if you have a curvy/hourglass body and very large boobs in proportion to your size it will make you feel confident and sexy! Only regret I ordered in blue (black) always my go-to and now black is sold out in size 8. Hoping they get more inventory in black.
