The new, limited edition #linearARIA may be long and flowy, but I'll keep this description short and concise.
ARIA (n) ~ A long accompanied melody for a solo voice.
LINEAR ARIA (n) ~ A long color-blocked maxi frock made JUST FOR YOU!
FLIP AND ZIP..
Keep it fun and flirty, or consider it extremely nursing friendly when you wear this maxi with the zipper facing forward. Simply tuck in the upper corners for a 'V'ery airy vibe. Front or back, you'll get a-round (neckline..hehe).
What sets this tiered maxi apart from the others is its colorbock concept. This bohemian beauty gets pulled together (literally) with the contrasting belt. Make (or take) a bow front or back to add additional flair to this frock.
The unique prints and color combos (chosen just for you!) of the #linearARIA are in short SUPPLY on a maxi that DEMANDs to be seen. If you have to make a scene to get your hands on this limited stock style, I suggest you... BUY IT NOW!
Model is wearing a size XS in the splatter color and S in the berry color* She is 5'9.
The #linearARIA is a bohemian style maxi dress. It flairs from the waist down to the ground. The bottom two tiers, as well as the belt, are a contrasting color to the base of the dress.
This garment can be flipped front or back (the neckline will remain the same). If you prefer to wear this frock with the zipper in the front (it's a great nursing friendly option), please carefully snip out the label with a pair of nail scissors at your discretion.
For the 'V' shape at the front neckline, unzip about an inch or so (based on your personal modest preference) and tuck the corners inwards.
-Maternity friendly (we suggest sizing up in this non-stretchy style if you plan to wear later in pregnancy) and a great postpartum option too.
-Vintage matte gold buttons at cuff complete the look.
IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING SIZING
The fit on both color options is based on your upper body. Consider the size of your shoulders, upper arms and chest area when choosing a size from the chart below. As the dress is flowy from the waist down, there is plenty of wiggle room for the lower body area. If you are broader on top, we suggest sizing up.
While the fabric styles are woven (not stretchy), they vary just slightly in tension and 'give'. This means that the measurements on the berry color are slightly different than the black and white color combo. The Berry blend option is ever so slightly tighter on the upper arms/chest (* Our model, a size 4 and normally an XS in all linear, opted for the small in the berry color as it gave her more wiggle room in her broad shoulders for her 5'9 frame). For most, the fit remains consistent with the chart below. If the size number is prefaced by 'SMALL', then you are smaller at the top part of your body.
XS- 0/2/small 4
S- 4/6/small 8
M- 8/10/small 12
LENGTH/ WIDTH GUIDE: Approx lengths for the ARIA dress are taken from center of shoulder to the bottom hem. Double the width for complete circumference around the body. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder). The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps.

The fabric of both ARIA dresses is woven and airy, but vary slightly in finished feel.
The 'SPLATTER' fabric is soft and light and has a slightly crepe-like textrure to its satin finish.
The 'MELTED BERRY' option mimics the a tie-dye concept in its print, but has a satin based finish to the touch (We like to say 'velvety satin', and we love it!)
Both are 100% POLY SATIN BACK CREPE
DRY CLEAN IS STRONGLY SUGGESTED. (due to the buttons and zipper) or...
