A lovely figure-skimming dress with a flattering scoop neck and A-line skirt. It's cut so that it nips in under your bust and accentuates your waist. We think it's ideal for work or play and looks great teamed with one of our Notch Neck Cardigans.

Pretty but small

I love the color of the dress. The fit not so much. Obviously not made with any consideration for those of us who are lacking a flat stomach. I could not zip it up over my tummy or my bust, a SC might have fixed the problem with zipping it over my bust but not for my stomach. It is more of a dress for fancy occasions than something to wear everyday.

Pockets Create Bunchiness

The pockets create bunchiness and it consequently didn't lay right on me. I also found that it made my bust look really wide. There is little to no stretch or give to this fabric. Going back :(

Love it but could be longer

I love this dress and it gives a great shape, especially at the waist. Unfortunately I can't wear it in summer without tights, it's just not long enough - something I struggle with in general with Bravissimo dresses (I'm 5'9). Please make your dresses a bit longer!!

Got this for work and it looks so clean and fresh. Feel very smart in it. Super comfortable, slightly more generous in size than some others I’ve tried but not enough to size down.

I love this dress in black and will probably buy it in every colour, but seeing as you’ve been obsessed with blue and black for the last couple of years, could we PLEASE have some more interesting colours/patterns?? I have enough blue and black!! More than enough!! Too much!!

Just bought this dress today. Tried it on in the shop. The fabric is lovely - so soft - and the shape and cut is perfect for me. Might have to get the other colour!! Big thumbs up thank you Pepperberry!

Pockets - wow, not enough women's dresses or skirts have pockets, major bonus! And they're decent sized pockets too. The fit is nice, though in usual bravissimo style I can't quite reach my arm over my 36J bust to do the zip up, so hubby has that pleasure. Great work & date dress, it flares out perfectly under the bust to cover my tummy.

The fit and shape of this dress is great. The tabs at the waist are fastened with poppers - when you put this on, you have to undo one set of poppers to slide the tab out of the belt loop as it sits over the side zip. The dress is very flattering on, and highlights my waist while skimming over my tummy. Bust fit is good (OK, a bit snug on the bust, but pretty much everything in a non-stretch fabric is). I've got the navy Jada dress, and this is similar, but maybe a little smaller. I'm not totally in love with the pattern; I like the black and white, and I like the red colour over this - but not a fan of spots. But, as there's not much choice pattern and colour wise at Bravissimo any more, I've kept this as it's suitable for work.
