It doesn’t have much hanger appeal, and it doesn’t stand out on the website, but every time one of us put the Lissa dress on, everyone else said, “You look amazing!”
The dress straps cut in where they attach to the bodice, so it may be necessary to use double-sided tape to hide bra straps in this dress. If you try this dress, let us know if it’s a win for you as well!
You all do look great in this dress! So relaxed and stylish.
But what is it with the huge darts in bravissimo at the moment?! A Jersey dress doesn’t need this chunky bust dart! I’ve noticed that their bust darts are similarly chunky in other items, like camisoles etc. It would really help if they let the dart end further outwards… Have you noticed this as well or is it just my obsession after learning how to sew?
What an interesting observation. I did sort of notice it–especially on Camille, perhaps because she should be in a size smaller. I’d be super curious to see any earlier Bravissimo samples of these styles with shorter darts. Like you, I don’t see knits as needing such long darts, but darts have a way of surprising me. I wonder if the longer darts accommodate women even larger busted than us, so that as the fabric is stretched out, the dart recedes?
The dart on the woven broderie summer top was surprising because it sort of bubbled at the end. Katie said it was likely because the darts weren’t shaped, and I’m inclined to agree.
I personally have much more love for the princess seams, I detest when the breast darts stick out. However bravissimo seems to be doing princess seams less and less these days
