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.

Could we have a smaller size?

Unfortunately this was way too big for me and I was swamped by the amount of material around my waist. You stock bras in 28 and 30 bands, so can you start making clothes in a size 4/6 as well? Us slim women with larger chests have the hardest time finding clothes!

I'm so glad I went into the store to try this on. I am a curvy size 10-12 but this dress looked too tight in a 12. I wanted it to drape over my figure rather than cling to it and ended up with a size 14 which I would never have normally tried on.

What a beautiful and flattering dress! I loved the color and hoped the silhouette, especially the neckline and front bodice, would look flattering on my body. I'm thrilled. Super flattering. I felt comfortable and beautiful all night - a new experience for me since Bravissimo! No more tugging and pulling to keep the dress where it belongs. Love!

The fit was all wrong

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I tried on a dress in store which I was told fit the same and then ordered this smoky blue dress in the same size. The darts near the bust stuck out funny and the shoulders were way too big on me. I have a long body and there was about an inch extra fabric at the top of my shoulders. For the price I needed it to be something I loved but unfortunately this one got returned.

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.

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

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!
