Take your holiday wardrobe to the max(i) with minimum fuss – this dress is super-flattering thanks to the sweetheart neckline, crossover waist and extra boob room so you can show off your fab cleavage! The material will skim rather than cling to your curves, and the slim straps are designed to cover your bra straps.

So flattering

I love this dress and have worn it so many times this summer already. The body is really flattering and supportive and the material is soft too. It was a little too big but I had it altered and taken up slightly and now it's perfect.

This is such a lovely dress! It fits very well and is very flattering on. I’m a 36DD and ordered the Curvy/Really Curvy in a size 10 (UK) which is a size 6 in the US. I’ve worn this with and without a bra and it still covers and holds me in well. I like that you can wear this with dressy or casual sandals and it works both ways! I ordered the Navy as it’s a good alternative to black. It’s quite thick and extremely well made. I just washed it in the gentle cycle and it’s holding up well. Thanks Bravissimo!

This is the 3rd maxi dress I have from Bravissimo. I often have the issue with the the dresses and tops being too short-waisted. Not this time! The waist sits perfectly and the dress falls in such a way to cover any lumps/bumps. At 5'4" I need to have the hem taken up 1-2 inches. The straps/arm holes are comfortable and completely cover my bras (mostly balconette style). I can't wait for more colours (not more navy blue please - I have so much navy blue from here). As mentioned by a previous reviewer, this is not a dress for >30oC, but will be good for cooler days of summer or spring here is Australia.

Not for the hottest of days!

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I got lots of compliments wearing it but I am 5'4 and this is about 2 inches too long. The fabric is a heavy jersey and is rather hot (ok for UK summer but not +35C heat!). I first wore a plunge bra with it and the dress straps didn't naturally sit with my bra straps, so it was constant readjustment and did occasionally show the top of my bra cups. Having said that, with a more modest bra it will be a versatile summer dress which I will enjoy wearing on cooler summer days.

This new collection is amazing, I am a 10 super curvy, 5ft 8in and this fits perfectly. I like the colour and comfort of this dress. It also washes up great and requires no ironing, fantastic.
