Rüya, meaning 'dream' in Turkish, this debut silhouette definitely lives up to its name. A truly chic, innovative, and comfortable House Dress that was created with versatility in mind, this specially woven opaque, cotton-linen blend (Ivory) 2-ply cotton gauze piece (Terracotta and Lavanta) and sustainable viscose (Black), famous for its drape and texture, features pin-striping and is as robust as it is dreamy, checking every Oddbird box.
A nice dress for by the water
I absolutely love this dress! I love the multi-way you can wear it. The length is perfect I’m 5’8” and I always feel like things are cropped a little too much but this length is great. I’m 155lbs and I ordered a medium and definitely could have sized down. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive or I’d buy more.
Overall this is a lovely garment - well made with beautiful fabric. Unfortunately their extended sizes miss the mark. I don't think they've been fit tested across a range of plus folks, and especially not those with b bellies. I made sure I was within the measurement range and it was still very tight across my stomach (and the whole point is a loose flowing look). I'm going to try and have it tailored in some way so I don't lose out on $175 entirely, but it's unfortunate that it doesn't work OOTB for plus folks. My b bellied plus friends - definitely think twice before buying!
Fabric is lively, color is great, pockets are useless (high shallow, and tilted strangely)…so no real need to even have them. If the belt were longer there could be other ways to wear it. Also if the front design fester were also in the back, options won’t be greater (back tuck, side tuck along with current front tuck). This is a miss, sadly.
