Fabric

88% polyester , 12% 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.

Velvet: this elegant fabric is made by adding additional threads during the weaving process which are then cut to create a pile with an extremely soft surface. All pile depths up to 3 mm are referred to as velvet.

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.

So beautiful! The images in our online shop speak for themselves. This is a dream of a dress. Went to the masses and dimensions and there even a number greater than ordered, as I usually wear. Turns out this very widely and loosely. Have a very large bust which has loosely in place. Wear the dress with unsupported bra. Nothing there is emerging. The length is perfect for me. Reaches to the knee - and I'm 1.85 tall. The fabric has a super nice sheen and feel pleasant on the skin. Does not slip on the shoulders. Get of my seamstress may still fit exactly to me it me. Fine by the Viennese seams very much. Could use a - 30% action. As a result of the price here just bearable for me. I am verliebt...kann wait, execute the part for the 1st time.

Original customer review

Wunderschön! Die Bilder im Onlineshop sprechen schon für sich. das ist ein Traum von einem Kleid. Bin nach den Maßen und Größenangaben gegangen und hab es sogar eine Nummer größer bestellt, als ich normalerweise trage. Fällt dadurch sehr weit und locker aus. Habe einen sehr großen Busen, der locker drin Platz hat. Trage das Kleid mit trägerlosem BH. Zeichnet nichts drunter ab. Die Länge ist für mich optimal. Reicht bis ans Knie - und ich bin 1,85 groß.Der Stoff hat einen superschönen Schimmer und fühlt sich angenehm auf der Haut an. Rutscht nicht an den Schultern. Werde es mir von meiner Schneiderin eventuell noch genau an mich anpassen lassen. Geht durch die Wiener Nähte sicher sehr gut.Konnte eine -30% Aktion nutzen. Dadurch vom Preis her für mich gerade noch so verschmerzbar. Ich bin verliebt....kann es kaum erwarten, das Teil zum 1. Mal auszuführen.

I ordered this dress as a top for a pair of trousers to shorten it any, because you rarely get shoulder evening bodice in my size. It has good cheap Vienna seams and falls quite well at this length. It is a lightweight velvet fabric and the color was just as pictured. For me, it was too long for a top and too short for a dress. Because I found it too for the price-performance ratio as a whole then too expensive I sent it back. Me would but happy if there were more shoulder tops solution mini with a more sophisticated.

Original customer review

Ich habe mir dieses Kleid als Oberteil für eine Hose bestellt um es eventuell zu kürzen, da man selten in meiner Größe schulterfreie Abendoberteile bekommt. Es hat gute Figur günstige Wiener Nähte und fällt in dieser Länge recht gut. Es ist ein leichterer Samtstoff und die Farbe war so wie abgebildet. Für mich war es zu lang für ein Oberteil und zu kurz für ein Kleid. Da ich es auch für das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis insgesamt dann zu teuer fand habe ich es zurück geschickt. Mich würde aber freuen wenn es mehr schulterfreie Oberteile geben würde auch mal mit einer raffinierteren schulterfreien Lösung.

The dress is top in workmanship and material quality. I would like to keep it, but: the Carmen snippet has its pitfalls. in this area the gown doesn't fit at all. I need the Gr. 52, but this place is too far. with every move the sleeves slide down further so that the views of the armpit is free. The fabric is not and throws folds back as front alike. I can not tell whether it is material or has been cut too far or simply the arms a light elastic or a silicone band would be required to stop there is. ... Therefore, this otherwise beautiful dress went back unfortunately...

Original customer review

Das Kleid ist in Verarbeitung und Stoffqualität top. Ich hätte es zu gerne behalten, aber: der Carmenausschnitt hat seine Tücken. in diesem Bereich sitzt das Kleid überhaupt nicht. Ich brauche die Gr. 52 aber hier ist alles zu weit. mit jeder Bewegung rutschen die Ärmel weiter herunter so dass der Blick auf die Achselhöhle frei wird. Der Stoff liegt nicht an und wirft Falten, hinten wie vorne gleichermaßen. Ich kann nicht sagen, ob es am Material liegt oder ob zu weit geschnitten wurde oder schlicht an den Armen ein leichter Gummizug oder ein Silikonband nötig wäre, damit Halt da ist. ...Daher ging dieses ansonsten wunderschöne Kleid leider zurück.......

The quality... is very poor The product runs… very small

Very nice, soft flowing fabric that is also not too thin and has a good grip. Unfortunately, the dress is up around rather generously cut, so that I don't fill it out...

Original customer review

Sehr schöner, weich fließender Stoff, der auch nicht zu dünn ist und einen guten Halt hat. Leider ist das Kleid oben herum recht großzügig geschnitten, so dass ich es nicht ausfülle...

Couldn't resist... I have this dress in red and have written a detailed review to do so. Now I did it me in dark blue, because I was looking for a dress for a wedding. Looks fantastic and super elegant in this color, and have it resurrected to a great sale price. In addition, the cut of this part just outrageously suits me.

Original customer review

Konnte nicht wiederstehen... ich besitze dieses Kleid schon in rot und habe eine ausführliche Rezension dazu verfaßt. Jetzt hab ich es mir in dunkelblau geleistet, weil ich auf der Suche nach einem Kleid für eine Hochzeit war. Sieht todschick und super elegant in dieser Farbe aus, und habe es zu einem tollen Sale Preis erstanden. Außerdem steht mir der Schnitt von diesem Teil einfach unverschämt gut.

Das Kleid ist ein Traum! Schnitt und Qualität super! Ich musste es leider!!! Zurückgeben, da mir der Ausschnitt runterrutschte. Dat mir wirklich sehr leid. Hoffe das das selbe Kleid mit dem anderen Ausschnitt wieder lieferbar ist.

This is a beautiful dress. Luxurious velvet. Colour as shown on site. I ordered 2 for size and I'm either 18 or 20 but the 18 fitted perfectly so would say it's slightly large to size. I'm 5feet 6 and the dress sits on my knee as per the picture on the page. Made to order item took 10 days to come. Got an email to say it had been despatched. Return of the larger size easy to do via Royal Mail. I'm really really pleased with this dress and think I will get lots of wear out if it as its a classic style. Perfect for Christmas season.
