This dress is designed with our signature shaping so it'll zip over your boobs without the need to size up. It nips in at the waist to emphasise your figure, but still gives a relaxed fit. And yes, it has pockets!

Big enough to fly a kite

Well what can I say?! This dress is MASSIVE. I’m not a tiny girl, yet this dress just hung off me. I would have needed an extra small curvy as the top half was that big!!!!! I tried bending over in the changing rooms and absolutely everything was on show as the top half was so big it gaps. Bravissimo have got it so wrong with this dress, which is a massive shame as I quite liked the material

Go up a size

This dress looked nothing like what I saw in the photos. It was a bad idea to buy my regular size as this dress does not come with an elastic band. I struggled to fit into it and ruined the side zip(why does it have a side and front zip by the way?). I couldnt return it as I was outside the UK at the time I bought this dress. Now I'm stuck with a dress I can't fit into. I would recommend you go a size up if you have big arms and hips.

way to big

I was so disappointed when the dress arrived: I ordered a 8 curvy and it was waaaay too big. Besides of the size it felt great with good quality. I ordered two other dresses and two shirts and they were too big as well. I don't know why because I had ordered dresses before and never had this issue. So sad, as I have now to return a huge package from Germany which is quite expensive.

I don't normally bother leaving reviews, but I felt I had to, for this dress. I bought this in store. I am very curvy, so imagine 32GG, smaller waist and a 12 inch gap between the waist and hips. This dress looked SO GOOD on me! It isn't fitted or tight in my usual size (14 SC), but because the fabric is of decent weight, it falls well and sits in the right places, with the darts nipping the dress in very nicely where needed. I am 5ft 1 and this sits just below the knee. For the first time in years, I felt confident enough to walk around without a cardigan to cover my rear, because in this dress I was able to walk without my bum wobbling and the fabric sitting on the bum area. Some ladies with smaller hips may want to downsize a bit. For me though, it was great. EVERYONE complimented me, saying it looked slimming. The fabric is a really nice and soft denim. It is thick enough to keep you warm, but will also be great in the summer. There is a zip on the dress, at the neckline. Without a vest underneath, it sits on the right place, so no cleavage is exposed. However, I do prefer to have a higher neckline, so I wore it with a vest under. I just wish that the other dresses were of more summery colours. After a while, one gets a bit bored of seeing only black/khaki/blue. I look forward to seeing more dresses like this. I may even purchase the Khaki option. Thanks, Bravissimo!

I need to leave a positive review on this gorgeous dress because I almost didn’t buy it based on the reviews and I am SO glad I did!! It’s gorgeous, fits me in exactly the right places and the fabric is brilliant quality.

Really flattering

My mum got me this dress for Christmas (as it is a little pricey for my student budget). It's really flattering, fits perfectly, and I really like the colour. I will wear it as a summer dress thanks to the fairly thin material, but with tights and boots it works well to accommodate cooler weather as well. I am sometimes an 8 Really Curvy/Super Curvy and sometimes a 10 Curvy/Really Curvy so I would recommend trying on a few sizes. One I tried on also had a fairly lopsided hem so be aware if this is something you notice as I do (at only 5,3 I discard anything that makes my legs look shorter!)

Thanks Bravissimo this dress fits perfectly!! Your dresses don't usualy fit me but I just had to buy this one (regardless of a very high price) as it looks so great on me. It's casual and very comfy -good alternative if you don't look great in a shirt-dress. I'm quite short (1.6 m)and find it difficult to find a nice fit. I'm usually between 8 and 10 size and 8 was just right. Please please please make it in soft jeans or chambrey I will buy 2 then

I bought this dress as I loved the style and colour. I bought in store. I normally wear a 12SC but had to go up a size to a 14RC as it was a bit snug round my hips. I do love the colour and style of it... but no matter how much I iron it, it shows up creases as soon as I sit down.. overpriced for what you get which is a shame.
