Fabric

Outer fabric: 100% viscose | Lining: 100% viscose

Did you know?

Chiffon: is an extremely feminine fabric that is adored for its elegant, sheer appearance. The light, plain weave of the fabric gives it a soft and fluid drape. Chiffon can be made of either polyester or silk.

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).

Great 4.0

Unfortunately, the dress is really big and it was already sold out next smaller size. Otherwise it is very beautiful, both the cut and the fabric. For the normal price but significantly overpriced.

Original customer review

Leider fällt das Kleid wirklich groß aus und die nächst kleinere Größe war bereits vergriffen. Sonst ist es sehr schön, sowohl vom Schnitt als auch vom Stoff. Für den Normalpreis allerdings deutlich überteuert.

The photographs do not do justice to this beautiful dress. I put off buying this after reading some of the comments but am so glad I finally ordered it. The colours are fabulous and the fit is so clever. Thank you Ava and Orla for making something so lovely for the larger woman!

Beautiful dress. Perfect for the wedding I'm attending. Fits beautifully as I'm 2 sizes smaller on top so it being a bit bigger on the bottom is great for me.

The dress has a beautiful cut. It turns out rather large, therefore less than a size dares you to bestellen...sonst it hangs like a sack. Unfortunately, it is also very difficult. The material is nice and soft. The snippet is deep!

Original customer review

Das Kleid hat einen sehr schönen Schnitt. Es fällt eher groß aus, daher traut euch eine Größe kleiner zu bestellen....sonst hängt es wie ein Sack. Leider ist es auch sehr schwer. Das Material ist angenehm und weich. Der Ausschnitt ist tief!

Very good 3.0

Loved the colour combination, and the feel of the fabric, but the skirt of the dress far too full to be flatter my strawberry shape figure, especially as the fullness started directly under my big bust.
