She obviously exercises a lot as she was not always so trim but it just goes to show it pays off.

Sorry to strike a discordant note but I think the hat is ridiculous. What is it with the British Royals and their headwear - so many times the hat or fascinator ruins a lovely look. I'm not sure about the back of Sophie's dress either, but I love this colour on her and the hairstyle.

I like the outfit from the front (well minus the hat), but hate it from the back. The back of the skirt just looks way too tight.

I don't like the back view, either, nor the zipper running down full length. But the color is absolutely beautiful; that would have been a great color for Louise as well. She needs a brighter coat like her mom's.

personally i don't like all the zips, didn't see the zips on the sleeves or the skirt from the front but from the back it looks a bit, well, cheap.

The outfit certainly wasn't cheap, haha! The dress itself is £1550, so god knows how much the jacket cost. I love the colour and the design. I think the design is meant to be very figure hugging. Sophie just seems to be embracing the fact that she is pretty trim.

I wish Louise had a brighter colour on, like red or blue.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex brings colour to Easter Sunday service in fitted Royal blue outfit with racy exposed zip - Mail Online

Perhaps it was a bit "inappropriate" for Church as it was extremely figure hugging and had a "racy zip" but I LOVE the colour.

Haha i should have added that it was almost certainly massively expensive. Does anyone know where it was from?

Roland Mouret.

Sophie looks amazing and I've seen people wear worse to church.

She looks great the color is fantastic . I even like the hat she is covered up so I think it looks appropriate for church. She seems to be trying more designer pieces that show off her figure.

Love it- even the hat, and I don't usually like such interesting creations.The only thing I might change is the zipper up the rear.....

Sophie looks absolutely stunning in that blue outfit.
The hat - which, under normal circumstances, I would probably hate - completes the ensemble nicely.

Sophie's, Countess of Wessex, ensemble was a perfect choice. I liked strong colour. The hat added a whimsical touch to the look. However, I wish the jacket sleeves did not have zips.

I think the Countess is undoubtedly THE best dressed female member of the British Royal family...

Minus the hat, she looks fantastic! The color is gorgeous. One of her best looks.

I think that Sophie looks great in her Easter attire. The color definitely suits her, and even though I'm not a fan of a lot of zippers (especially ones that go that far down), I will say, they add a sort of pizzaz to the whole look.

She certainly has a figure that many 48 yr old mothers of 2 would envy.

That is so true. I hope I look half as good as Sophie does when I am nearing the big 5-0. The photo of her from the side just shows how slim she is, it's great. She obviously exercises as there is no way she would obtain that trim figure simply by eating a good diet.

I think the zips make it look quite sexy, though that is not really the look you'd really be going for at Church. It is such a beautiful ensemble though, Sophie really is a stunning woman and looks no where near her age. I want her secrets.
