Fabric and Care
Melanie is made from a soft chiffon fabric which is comfortable to wear and similar in quality to silk, but much easier to clean and care for. The embroidered bodice is also surprisingly easy to care for, and requires no special cleaning. This dress can be dry cleaned, but can also be washed regularly at home on a delicate cycle. Best of all, the exceptional quality of the chiffon means Melanie will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.
Sizing a challenge
The quality of the dress is wonderful and the price of the instock dresses can’t be beat. I ordered an 8 to try on at home and the dress was too small, according to the size chart sent I needed a 6, 8, or 14 depending on which measurement you focused on. I’ve considered myself a very average 6 or 8 for most my adult life, and the fit of clothing of any type has never been too much of an issue. This large difference was unusual I thought. I ordered the 10 in the same dress and it’s loose and will need altering. Plus the dress is much too long. Again I am fairly average at 5’5”. I absolutely love the quality of the dress, the pockets, the slit, and the style are beautiful. I am very excited to wear the dress, just very disappointed the sizing was such a challenge.
