Description

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.

Jessica Rabbit wants her dress back!

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I ordered this dress in red and navy thinking if I like them (very doubtful I would) I’d return one. Well, I’m sorry but I’m having both. Wow, wonderful fit, feel utterly sensational. Teamed the navy with a blazer, it looks fantastic. Thank you Bravissimo. P.s. when will black be back in stock?

Dream dress turned nightmare

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I am so disappointed. Ever since I purchased this dress in Black I dreamed of the same in RED. You cannot imagine the fantastic feeling I had when I saw it this year available in RED. Well, I just received the dress in the mail all the way to NZ and the dream turned nightmare when I saw it’s actually ORANGE, not red. I am so disappointed! Also it looks like I have four nipples because the stitching is so prominent. Bravissimo you should be honest and say it’s ORANGE, I have dresses from you that are Red and they truly are Red. I am so upset you didn’t make this style in RED. I feel like crying!

What a stunner!

A stunning dress that makes me feel so sexy, even at my age. What more can I say, and I fitted a size 12 rather than my usual 16! The ruched material hides my lumps and bumps, and holds you securely. I feel stunning, beautiful and attractive wearing it.

A nice dress - but choose your sizing carefully if you're an hourglass

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

My measurements are: Hips: 45 inches (114.5cm) Waist: 29 inches (73.5cm) Bust: 42 inches (106cm) According to Bravissimo fit guides, this would make me a size 18 at the hips and a size 10 at the waist, which is... tricky. I asked for sizing advice through the online chat and they suggested I order based on my largest measurement. I ended up ignoring this advice and instead ordered the average of my two sizes, a 14 Really/Super Curvy. This is not a knock at the online customer service, it's difficult to make sizing suggestions for someone you can't see, but if you're on the fence about sizing and you're an hourglass, I don't recommend sizing to your largest measurement in this dress. I would have ordered the 18, and it would have been MASSIVE on me. The 14 is still too big. To give you a breakdown and hopefully help others who are unsure about sizing, here's how the 14 fits on my measurements (which I listed above): Hips: The 14 is a pretty good fit, but the material has enough stretch that I'm quite confident I could have gone down to a 12 and still been reasonably comfortable with my 45 inch hips (although it would be quite "bodycon" at this point, so if you're looking for a looser fit, ignore this). Waist: The size 14 is way too large for my 29 inch waist. TONS of extra fabric and bunching that I will need to have tailored. I can grab a solid handful of extra fabric at the back. Bust: The Really/Super Curvy provides just enough of a coverage/cleavage ratio for me in this size and covers my bra (32HH in UK sizes), but like a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, there's some strange gaping under the arms that I will need to have fixed by a tailor. I think this is less a size issue and more of a design flaw. There's also a strange stitch on each side of the bust that makes it lie weirdly that I need to tailor to fix. Length-wise, I'm 5'10 and this dress hits below my knee. With the ruching, you could probably hike it up a bit if you're short though.

Made me feel seeexxxxyyyyy!

It's been a while a dress has made me feel sexy, but Leila did it. A bit down from putting on weight and my breasts just seeming to have life of their own, I would wear clothes that did not bring much attention to myself so I just blended in. But the sensual woman inside me was screaming to get out so I thought I'd give Leila a try, after reading the reviews. The material is thick, which makes the dress hold you properly without feeling like a harness and covers any lumps and bumps we women worry about. It sits on my curves like water, accentuating the shape of my body the way it's meant to look. It really lifted my spirit looking at myself in it. I feel amazing, stunning, beautiful, special. Thank you. Please don't change it or stop making it. Add more colours, please!

It's ok

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I bought this dress in a 12RC/SC and a 14C/RC as I wasn't sure what size I needed. Tried the 12 on first as it was massive on my body, not just my bust. I then thought I'll try the 14 as you just never know and it was a snug fit like I wanted. It's way too long on me at 5'4" so I've had a tailor take up and take some fabric out under the armpits as it was gaping. I'm a 34FF so I honestly don't think it should be doing that. I would have taken it back, but all sizes were out of stock that I would have wanted to try and I do love the dress, just not how well it fitted me. Anyway what I have now is a dress tailored to my shape and I love it, just a shame it cost me an arm and a leg to get it.

Very sexy, supportive dress with thick fabric, nice thickish straps and lots of ruching at the sides. I took advice from previous reviewers by stepping into it, which works well. I’m a size 14 in jeans and 34DD in Fantasie, the 14 fitted like a glove, and it’s just so comfortable, no straps digging in or rough seams... this 57 year old will be strutting her stuff on holiday next week like a minx!
