If you’ve ever wanted to try out the cold shoulder look but you’re worried that your bra straps might peek out, worry no longer, we’ve got you covered! This gorgeous dress has our signature shaping so there’s extra boob room and it nips in at the waist. The skirt is slightly tapered and has a split at the back.

Far better than I expected

Wasn’t sure what to expect with this dress, if it was going to be me or not. Actually surprised how nice this dress is, how lovely the material is & looks great on. Can’t wait to wear it.

Tight around thighs

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I found this too tight around the hips/thighs, like another reviewer said it would have been difficult to sit down! However, I first tried this in a 14RC (latest try 14SC) and don't remember that one being tight on the thighs! Being 5'4" I would have to alter the straps to make it fit, as I did with the feather print one, which is OK. But, for me, my somewhat 'rounded' tummy doesn't look good from the side view in this striped version, so sadly returning it.

Way too revealing

I loved this dress so much and really wanted to buy it. However, despite trying on a 10RC, 10SC and 12SC it was impossible to find a size which didn't show way too much cleavage. It's such a shame. For the right person this is a beautiful dress but sadly not right for me.

So pretty BUT...

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I loved this dress so much, however, it’s the first item I’ve had from Bravissimo that I had to return because it wasn’t a great fit! I’m usually a 12SC, but it was so tight across the bum I couldn’t sit down in it! I returned and tried the 14RC, but still the same issue, and then too much room up top. Absolutely gutted as it’s a stunning dress and completely perfect in every other way. If you’ve got curves all over, ladies this may not be for you!
