First the things you can't see: it's soft; it's lightweight (7.8 ounces); it's stretchy; it wicks sweat; it has Polygiene permanent odor control; and it has an interior shelf bra for support. Now for the things you can see: it has a high neckline to protect your chest from the sun; it has crisscrossing triple elastic straps for style and support; it has a single-layer cowl at the lower back for a draped effect; it has a drop tail hem with a slight scoop that hits right above your knees; and it has 2" side slits for extra movement. 5.2oz., 85% recycled polyester/15% spandex. Fabric is certified as bluesign approved and Fair Trade Certified sewn. ImportedPolygiene Odor ControlPolygiene permanently protects your dress from smelling on the sweaty side of fresh. Although sweat itself is odorless, it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of the odor-causing bacteria on the fabric, so you can wear your dress more and wash it less. Polygiene-treated products can be washed at lower temperatures and washed less often, because they can be worn several times between launderings. This is significant because energy and water used to wash and dry garments at home is a major contributor to water use, energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions over the lifetime of a garment. The useful lifetime of your dress is diminished with bacteria and repeated laundering. The Polygiene treatment adds life to your dress so you don't need to buy a new one as often.bluesign Approved Fabricbluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers and safe for the end customers.
