Wrap Dress Information:
* WHAT KIND OF FABRIC DO YOU USE??
I do tons of research seeking out the best fabrics for this type of dress! Nylon/Spandex and Poly/Spandex fabrics work best and are what I typically use.
I carry light, medium, and heavier weight stretch fabrics to please all! Some are matte, some with a sheen, and some are satin. See fabric descriptions on each listing and make sure to order a swatch if in question.

*HOW DO I CUT MY SKIRT/DRESS FROM HOME?
Mark and use either some good sharp scissors or a rotary cutter!
*HOW DO I WASH MY SKIRT/DRESS?
Your dress is super easy to care for. I do recommend hand washing the dress in cold water. The dress is also machine washable if placed in a mesh wash bag and wash on the delicate cycle in cold water. Hang to dry! If you need to press out wrinkles, use an iron on medium heat and put a press cloth between iron and dress. Take extra care with chiffon fabric.
*DOES THE INFINITY DRESS WORK FOR LARGER BUSTS?
Well endowed ladies also love this dress! You can wrap in flattering ways to hide (or reveal) more (shown in instructional videos). It's best to order the matching tube top that covers the strapless bra. Or choose the extra wide straps for additional $25.
See photos of all body types here:
*DO YOU DO CUSTOM FABRICS??
Sorry, I'm not able to custom order fabrics. Good functional wrap dress fabric is really hard to find, so I buy whatever I can get! Please feel free to let me know what you're looking for though. I go fabric shopping frequently and can keep an eye out for you!
