Did you know?

Jersey: is a knitted fabric that most often has an extremely fine surface which is distinguished by its high degree of elasticity. The resulting comfort is what makes jersey so popular.

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).

Material of the dress is very nice. Fabric is difficult and thus the cut is very nice. Volant on the bust size falls thus also very nice to wear very well even with large bust size.

Original customer review

Material des Kleides ist sehr schön. Stoff ist schwer und dadurch fällt der Schnitt sehr schön. Volant an der Oberweite fällt dadurch auch sehr schön, sogar mit großer Oberweite sehr gut zu tragen.

Great dress, super cut. Since the fabric is quite heavy, it is super and I think it's slim.

Super dress, it is simply wonderful, despite large bust, the bodice of the dress is not, since it is just heavy and great. Absolutely recommendable.

Original customer review

Super Kleid, es fällt einfach Traumhaft, trotz großer Oberweite, trägt das Oberteil des Kleides nicht auf, da es einfach schwer und toll fällt. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Very good 3.0

Whilst I was not taken by the neck-line or the 'ruffle top' I am keeping this dress because it is such a wonderful length and so comfortable. I tend to buy black, sleeveless, loose-fitting, flowing maxi-dresses and wear a layering tunic top and/or jacket over anyway ..... so the ruffle and low neckline are not a problem for me (at the sale price). Fabric, whilst not my usual preference (I usually prefer 100% cotton or 100% linen or a mix of cotton with linen) but had experience of high viscose with a small amount of elastane in another dress which I tried ... and found it surprisingly cool and comfortable .... also easy care (wash at low temperature ... and hang dry: Whilst takes a little longer to dry than cotton or linen ..... there is absolutely no need whatsoever to iron. En balance I am comfortable wearing this dress and would happily buy another to wear in my usual way with tunic/jacket layer to hide the ruffle. (size 26 purchased in black)
