Fabric

80% cotton, 20% polyester

Did you know?

Cotton: is a natural fibre favoured for its breathability - which means it's cool to wear in the summer while warm in the winter. It's hypo-allergenic and so is especially suitable for people with skin sensitivity. It's also long lasting and easy care - it's machine washable.

Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.

Lovely dress simple but nice on. My only complaint is that the stripes are more light blue than the description of dark blue. Yet still a nice simple dress

The dress was love at first sight! Sooo nice! Romantic without being too rüschig. It sits well with some belly and has a super nice quality. It is however very small. Necessarily bigger order!

Original customer review

Das Kleid war Liebe auf den ersten Blick!! Sooo schön! Romantisch ohne zu rüschig zu sein. Es sitzt auch mit etwas Bauch gut und hat eine super schöne Qualität. Es fällt allerdings sehr klein aus. Unbedingt größer bestellen!

Unfortunately, the arms are somewhat closely cut, just thing of the past with the upper arms in. Otherwise, I'm very excited by the dress!

Original customer review

Leider sind die Arme etwas eng geschnitten, passe gerade noch so mit den Oberarmen rein. Ansonsten bin ich sehr begeistert von dem Kleid!

Great 4.0

I give 4 stars because the dress chic and one touch is noble, with lines character... But unfortunately completely unsuitable for busty ladies like me... The gerüschte waist seam - not elastic! -is for me so ill that I, seen from the side was twice as wide and from the front it was not... What a pity

Original customer review

Ich gebe 4 Sterne da das Kleid schick und einen touch edel ist, mit Leinencharakter ... Für vollbusige Damen wie mich aber leider gänzlich ungeeignet .. Die gerüschte Taillennaht - nicht elastisch! - liegt für mich so ungünstig, dass ich, seitlich betrachtet doppelt so breit wirkte und auch von vorne ging es gar nicht .. schade

Very good 3.0

The dress is very well liked and in size 52-54, it has super fit me. But unfortunately I had to send it back for two reasons: firstly, I am 180 cm long and had the gathering of the waist under the bosom and secondly it was very transparent. I would have to pull so a dress including and then it will be back too hot for the summer. Schaaaade.

Original customer review

Mir hat das Kleid an sich sehr gut gefallen und in Größe 52/54 hat es mir super gepaßt. Aber leider musste ich es aus zwei Gründen wieder zurückschicken: Erstens bin ich 180 cm lang und hatte die Raffung der Taille unter dem Busen und zweitens war es doch sehr durchsichtig. Ich hätte also noch ein Unterkleid darunter ziehen müssen und dann wird`s doch für den Sommer wieder zu warm. Schaaaade.

Very good 3.0

Three factors have contributed to the return: - for me too long dark blue is rather a faded blue structure of the substance is too coarse to me. Still a good dress.

Original customer review

Drei Faktoren haben zur Rücksendung beigetragen: -für mich zu lang -das Dunkelblau ist eher ein verwaschenes Blau -die Struktur des Stoffes ist mir zu grob. Dennoch ein gutes Kleid.

Ok 2.0

The dress looked like maternity clothes on me. The elastic on the waist was too high and thus stressed not the waist, but the belly.

Original customer review

Das Kleid sah an mir aus wie Umstandsmode. Der Gummizug an der Taille saß zu hoch und betonte somit nicht die Taille, sondern den Bauch.

The quality... is what I expected The product runs… quite small

A big shame! The dress is beautiful, cut, color and length are perfect. UNFORTUNATELY, it is not opaque. Every dent and every capillaries :-(on the buttocks and legs is visible here. This is unfortunately not and that's why it goes back. Really bad.

Original customer review

Ein ganz großes Schade !!! Das Kleid ist wunderschön, Schnitt , Farbe und Länge sind perfekt. LEIDER ist es nicht blickdicht. Jede Delle und jedes Äderchen :-( am Po und an den Beinen wird hier sichtbar. Das geht leider gar nicht und deshalb geht es zurück. Wirklich schade .

Ok 1.0

The dress is very nice by the cut and everything. Unfortunately, this stuff is but completely transparent. The dress can not be worn without petticoat, except on the beach or to the swimming. From the cut, it was a city / working clothes for me but rather. That's why back.

Original customer review

Das Kleid ist vom Schnitt und allem sehr schön. Leider ist der Stoff aber komplett durchsichtig. Das Kleid kann ohne Unterkleid nicht getragen werden, außer am Strand oder zum baden. Vom Schnitt wäre es für mich aber eher ein Stadt/ Arbeitskleidung. Darum zurück.
