Care & Undergarments
Lightweight and delicate, silk satin is a luxurious natural fabric that should be handled with care. We recommend professional dry cleaning, or a cool hand wash with natural detergent. Rinse with cold water and hang to dry.
For a smooth finish, we recommend ironing on a dedicated silk or low temperature setting, or using a steamer. Use of a good quality starch spray prior to ironing may also help to minimise creasing during wear. Please refer to the bottle to ensure that it is suitable for silk, and follow the directions for use.
Our silks are lightweight fabrics, adding to the luxury and comfort of our dresses. They can however become slightly sheer in certain lighting. We recommend wearing invisible undergarments to combat VPL (visible panty lining) and achieve a smooth silhouette. Here are some of our suggestions:
Silicone Bras - Recommended for all designs, if suitable, as they offer a smooth and invisible finish underneath our silk dresses. Brand suggestion: Most brands will be suitable.
Seamless G-strings & Shapewear - Seamless undergarments are the best way to combat VPL. A nude colour close to your skin tone is our best recommendation. Brand suggestion: Bras N Things, Secret Weapons.
Clear Strap G-strings - A seamless g-string with a clear waistband is perfect under our lighter colours, ensuring no VPL or underwear silhouette. Product suggestion: Bras N Things - Smooth Comfort Clear Waist Mini V Knicker in Nude.
Strapless G-strings - Strapless, adhesive g-strings are the ultimate invisible undergarment. Very minimal coverage, but great for a smooth silhouette and invisible finish under lighter colours. Brand suggestion: Secret Weapons, B Free Australia.
