Fabric

68% viscose, 27% polyamide, 5% elastane

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).

Polyamide: is a synthetically manufactured fibre that has been significantly optimised over the past few years to improve its breathability and comfort when worn. The fibres are extremely durable and can be used in a variety of ways. Polyamide is a popular material for making activewear.

A really great dress with a super cut. The material is very strong, so that you feel drawn to. The dress after my memory for the H or the X-type was designated in the item description. I found it so great that I wanted to have it be sure despite my A figure. Unfortunately, I'm a too pronounced A-type. Therefore, I had to return it. Very bad.

Original customer review

Ein wirklich tolles Kleid mit einem super Schnitt. Der Stoff ist sehr kräftig, so dass man sich angezogen fühlt. In der Artikelbeschreibung war das Kleid nach meiner Erinnerung für den H und/oder den X-Typ ausgewiesen. Ich fand es aber so toll, dass ich es trotz meiner A-Figur unbedingt haben wollte. Leider bin ich ein zu ausgeprägter A-Typ. Daher musste ich es zurück senden. Sehr schade.

Pretty fabric. The cut is somewhat strange because the bags that don't stand out on the screen as in real.

Original customer review

Schöner Stoff. Der Schnitt ist etwas seltsam wegen der Taschen, die auf dem Bild nicht so abstehen wie in echt.

Too bad the material is cut with the issued bags for plus size really excellent, but utterly unsuitable.

Original customer review

Schade, das Material ist wirklich hervorragend, aber der Schnitt mit den ausgestellten Taschen für große Größen schlichtweg ungeeignet.

Ok 2.0

The material is great, slightly thicker, definitely more a winter dress. Unfortunately, previous speakers were right as regards the bags – they are really very significantly and cause a very, very hüftlastige silhouette. And although the size and fit on the abdomen and chest was ok, a large fabric fold back on the back. So kinda weird. go back unfortunately.

Original customer review

Das Material ist toll, etwas dicker, definitiv eher ein Winterkleid. Leider hatten meine Vorredner recht, was die Taschen angeht - sie stehen wirklich sehr deutlich ab und verursachen eine sehr, sehr hüftlastige Silhouette. Und obwohl die Größe und Passform an Bauch und Oberweite ok war, stand hinten am Rücken eine große Stofffalte ab. Also irgendwie merkwürdig. geht leider zurück.
