Absolutely stoked. Dress feels and looks amazing. Might get the sleeves cropped as they’re a little ‘boho’ for me, but other than that I’m in love.
Given the whole selling point of these clothes is their suitability for travel, I was disappointed to find that the Wilder Wrap dress in the Native pattern crushes badly. It definitely needs ironing and that’s not something I want to do whilst travelling. I also find the information about their fabrics is not entirely transparent. All the communication focuses on the benefits of Tencel ( including that it is wrinkle free!) but this version of the Wilder wrap dress is made from Modal. In fact the only Wilder dress made from Tencel appears to be the Black. Yes, it does say under the Details section that the Native is made from modal but if you don’t actually click on Details, all you see is a tab immediately below labeled Tencel. I have looked up information about Modal and its environmental credentials seem to depend on the manufacturer. So I looked under the Our Fabrics section on this website but Modal isn’t mentioned. It might well be fine but it is impossible to be sure. Finally, I didn’t read the returns policy before purchasing and now find my concerns wouldn’t fit with their criteria. Being a strong supporter of Timor-Leste, I really wanted to support this company but this experience has certainly discouraged me.
The dress is even better than I imagined! Lovely, smooth fabric and flowy design. Love the longer sleeves. So happy :)
Versatile and flattering
I love my wilder wrap dress is black, it’s so flattering and is very versatile. I wear it to the beach, out to dinner and everywhere else I go whilst travelling. It dries really quickly too, a great investment!
Wilder Wrap Dress in Native
Such a beautiful, well made dress, loved the colour, I can see myself wearing this for many years to come. Pieces like this are worth the investment because you know you can keep them forever, you're supporting local businesses and slow fashion, and they're versatile. I've worn it to a nice dinner out with my boyfriend, a work conference, and next month it will be a wedding. Jess was very responsive with a question that I had, and the shipping was quick and efficient. Thanks Jess!
