Fabric

Main fabric: 63% viscose, 32% nylon, 5% elastane | Secondary fabric: 55% nylon, 45% viscose

Did you know?

Elastane: a synthetic, elastane is added in small quantities to fabrics to provide stretch and shape retention. It allows freedom of movement and delivers long lasting fit. Lycra is a premium branded version of elastane.

Viscose: used to be known as 'artificial silk' because like silk it has superb drape, is soft to the skin and can be dyed in rich colours. A man-made fabric, it's made from wood pulp and blends easily. You will often find it blended with other fabrics to add softness, lustre or absorbency (it's highly absorbent and so cool to wear in the summer).

Nylon: Nylon tights took the world by storm beginning in the 1950s and changed the textile branch – it is hard now to imagine women only wearing silk tights. Nylon is the trademark name for a chemical fibre that is composed of polyamide and is known for its exceptional elasticity.

Exceptional 5.0

Need the dress in June to a wedding. It is "thinner", sits very well, exactly as described. The drapery to belly and hips well concealed the problem areas. It flatters.

Original customer review

Brauche das Kleid im Juni zu einer Hochzeit. Es ist "dünner", sitzt sehr gut, genau wie beschrieben. Der Faltenwurf um Bauch und Hüften kaschiert gut die Problemzonen. Es schmeichelt.

The quality... is high The product runs… true to size

very good cut dress for special occasions. Size 48 would fit but also, because of my broad shoulders, I had to take 50.

Original customer review

sehr gut geschnittenes Kleid für besondere Anlässe. Größe 48 hätte zwar auch gepasst, wegen meiner breiten Schultern musste ich 50 nehmen.

Great 4.0

Color was not more pink than orange so as expected, the top thread. There was also more in more confection than normally worn. Who likes dark pink, it falls right, I would have taken it. So it went back.

Original customer review

Farbe war nicht so wie erwartet, der Spitzenfaden mehr rosa als orange. Gab es auch nur mehr in größerer Konfektion als normal getragen. Wer altrosa mag, es fällt schön, Ich hätte es genommen. So ging es retour.
