Shell Woman Dress - Short
***Please check size chart before placing your order. Our sizing is very different from mainstream stores. Yes, truly!***
Shell Woman Dress - Short: This gorgeous hand-dyed dress is wonderful for getting dressed in just one piece. The straps can be open or crossed at the front - see photos. The bust area is double lined giving you support without having to wear a bra, if that's your preference. Don't leave the house without wearing a bra? A lot of women ask how to do that with this piece. I like to find a bra with attractive complimenting or contrasting straps. Let your straps show and add to your outfit. Strapless bras are also wonderful if you are not a strappy type.
What is the difference between the Beltane and the Shell Woman? The Beltane is akin to an A-line fit with a full skirt. It is cut in two pieces with a seam at the upper waist. The Shell Woman Dress is just one piece, more narrow in fit. They do have the same fit around the bust. Click here to see Beltane Dress Short
Fit: You want this dress to be fitted on top in order to get smooth lines and so that the fabric will lay with your skin. It is a more narrow fitting dress however it is not super tight. Some people get this confused with the Beltane Dress. Please see below.
Fabric: Bamboo/Organic Cotton/Spandex
Wash: Wash Cold. I would not suggest hanging it to dry by the straps. Instead, hang it upside down, clip hanger to the top of the dress or lay flat to preserve elastics.
Please know there will be variations in colour and pattern as these pieces are hand dyed - always one of kind!
