Description

Last year, this dress was a winner for many Bravissimo girls and you fed back that you loved the way that the flattering material hugs all the right places. We hope this smoky blue number will make a great winter party dress with its ¾ sleeves and sophisticated scoop back.

Lovely dress but...

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

This dress is sophisticated and very comfortable to wear. I love the scoop back and the higher neck looked good even though I don't normally go for a neck this high. It isn't normally very flattering for big boobs! Its a good length too as so many dresses are too short for me being 5'8". However the real downside for me was after an evening of wearing it in a moderate indoor temperature I took it off to find I was covered in the residue from the black dye of the dress that had rubbed off onto my skin. It took some scrubbing off too. Not impressed Bravissimo especially as I have suffered from a textile allergy in the past. Fortunately I didn't react but it is not expected when buying from a reputable company hence the 3 stars. Please get this looked into. Nevertheless a lovely dress.

Love this dress

Bought this in the grey/blue colour and am really pleased with it. It fits well and is super comfortable. Not sure what I will team it with to make an outfit but I guess I'll find something somewhere.

This dress is everything!! I’ve looked everywhere for something fitted that didn’t cause asphyxiation by boobs, but still gave me my waist. I feel like the real me in this, I don’t have to hide under a hideous shapeless bin bag of a party dress this season!

Sophisticated and sexy

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This dress is stunning and versatile and also comfortable! It's difficult to find all requirements in one dress. The fit is true to size, no problems with darts other reviewers have mentioned. The fabric is just heavy and supportive enough while still having stretch and movement. I had to step into it rather than put over my head. I'm 5 foot 3 and slim and this fits just below the knee. It is a tight fit around the knee but the in and out shape is very flattering. The neck is a high scoop, with the figure hugging design it is a good balance to have the slightly higher neck line and longer length. It's also great to have three quarter sleeves so that in Winter you don't have to hide the beautiful cut of the dress with a cover up. I have the blue which is between a petrol blue and a dark turquoise-really pretty and flattering. It is a lovely change to not have to buy black or red particularly on the run up to Christmas. I can imagine wearing this classic dress to many different occasions and will be giving it it's inaugural outing tomorrow on a weekend away to a romantic hotel with my husband-I'm sure he'll love it!

Love, love, love! Slimming & Flattering

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

Gorgeous!! I utterly love this dress. I’m just under 5’9” and it’s a lovely chic length that covers my knees. It’s my total “go to” dress for all sorts of occasions, looks amazing, is so comfortable, fits like a glove, and suits all kinds of parties: drinks, dinners, dances. It’s understated, but perfect. I was worried about the cheap material not being cotton stretch velvet, but it’s just good enough and it washes well. The machined hem is a pity, but, luckily, isn’t too obvious when wearing. Wonderful not to have to wear a cardi or jacket, and to feel so great. I’m a little larger than I’d like at the moment, but this dress is beautifully slimming and flattering. Thank you Bravissimo for a chic length dress for us taller ladies, smaller girls can take the dress up, but we can’t add a bit on! I’d happily pay 4 times as much for better quality fabric and a hand sewn hem. I might even buy a 2nd one to keep in the cupboard for when I’ve worn this one out - it’s so rare to find a dress that fits.

Nice material

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I liked the material, a heavier fabric is generally much more flattering. Too long for me, but as others have said, it can probably be shortened. In the end the model didn't suit me. I wish Bravissimo would do more straight skirts, all of the dresses seem to be super slim or A-lined. Neither are suitable for professional settings, nor are very slim dresses flattering on most people.

Fabulous

I love this dress - stretchy, fitted but not too clingy, feels lovely and fitted me perfectly. I didn't have the problem with the darts. I'm 5'4 and this hits me just below the knee (not the calf like the other reviewer) Perfect LBD for me.

Favorite dress I own!!

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This dress is hands down the most elegant and yet sexy dress I currently own in my wardrobe. It's so lovely to have something that clings in all the right places (it's nice and stretchy too!) with plenty of room on the bust. I've always worn floaty clothes and have just bought my first two tight and fitted dresses from Bravissimo and this was one of them. Great for work, or a dinner date or a night out with the right accessories. Love the velvet (feels so luxiourious!), love the open back too. I've had SO many complements when I've worn it. Go Bravissimo! More colours please!
