I do like the colour on Sofia but the style of the dress, the weird length and the cape type thing on her back did the outfit no favours. Also the "button" hat does not go well with the look.

The dress is too tight. It bunched up in the middle while she was standing and the design was meant for the dress to fall straight down. And it looks like she was wearing nursing pads:

If they are, a darker (and better fitting) dress with a jacket would have fixed that.

Nice dress and very nice color - but it was a wee bit too tight.
I really liked the red dress she wore yesterday, she looked lovely & classy.
It is only been five weeks since she gave birth so it is okay to wear loose fitting dresses.

I actually think yesterday's dress in a lighter (red not for a christening, at least that shade) color would have been great today. With some jewelry and a hat. A long dress wasn't needed for a day event, and she would have fit in well with Mary two people down.

The skirt and color are beautiful. I agree with others about the pancake hat, cape-top, and tightness. The draping at the shoulders veered into costume territory.
To be clear, I do not have any issue with Princess Sofia's body and certainly do not advocate women rush to return to their pre-baby figure. I simply found Sofia's other post-baby appearances better.

I adored this dress and the cape was my favorite part. I thought it was dramatic and pretty, and flattering as well.

I think the dress for the Christening was very regal and a lovely colour. The material meant it had to be quite fitted, so I wonder if a lighter material such as chiffon would have "softened" the fit a little.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Sofia in a larger hat!

The dress is great but the head thing is just ugly! I don't think I'll ever learn to like fascinators, they look so ridiculous. A nice piece of jewellery or a proper hat for me, please.

I love the colour of Sofia's dress, but that's about it. The cape doesn't go to well with the dress, and I don't think the fitting of the dress itself is too flatering either. I love how she has colour coordinated her shoes and her clutch, though.

The colour looked good on her but not keen on the cut

Agree, and agree.

I will be curious to see how she dresses for her son's christening.

I didn't like her outfit or the colour for oscars christening, but she's gotten back to amazing shape after Alexander's birth, and that's commendable

It is a pretty dress which is now unfortunately too tight for her.

Sofia looked good in it at the state visit of the president of India on 31st May last year:

Lovely dress on her, but right now far too tight. It is pulling in the chest and other places, and looks wrinkled. Would be happy to see her recycle this again as lovely choice on her, but she needs to be closer to pre-pregnancy weight. But nice to see her out, and smiling.

Agree with others, pretty dress but not to be worn during her post-pregnancy body phase.

I think its difficult to find good clothing at the moment but tightly fit dresses are not a solution.

It is snug on her. But that said, I think pregnancy has agreed with Sofia very much. She has looked stunning in this last year.
