Fabric: Viscose/poly mix with a touch of stretch for easy fit

Washing instructions: cold hand wash or machine wash on hand wash settings
Length from natural waist: 26 inches

Fabric has some comfort stretch.  The only 'very' fitted area is the waist. So we recommend you choose via waist measurements below. Can accomodate most bust sizes well due to gathers in bust.

Shape advice: Style is perfect for pear shapes but will flatter all shapes and will create curves for pillars and apples.

Please refer to the table below as a size guide. Measurements are in inches.

Beautiful dress, perfect for bringing a bit of vintage style elegance to every day wear. I am a size 8-10 and I went for a size 10, I am glad I did as there is absolutley no give in this fabric and it really does hug the waist. If you are unsure between two sizes I would recommemd you go for the larger of the two!

Nice! The pleats on one side of the bust area didn't look right at first, but after pressing and a minor alteration, the dress looks fine.
