ADALEI is excited to offer our new size range, including PLUS in L (14/16) and XL (18/20). We understand fit can be difficult and hope to find solutions by offering overlapping and expanded sizes for our straight and plus ranges.
SHOP COLLECTION = Straight Sizing
SHOP PLUS = Plus Sizing
Designing a plus-sized line isn't as simple as taking the model sample and making it bigger. There are specific changes in the plus body that create a fit issue when grading up through a straight size range.
The best fit comes from developing patterns that START on a plus form, which is how I design in the studio. Using the Alvanon 1/2 scale size 18 and the Alvanon Body Platform virtual avatars as my fit standard, I'm offering these overlapping and expanded sizes to fit more body types.
Noticeable differences will be in the armhole, crotch depth, ease across the bust and the waist/hip measurement.
Year round comfort and breathability.
95% Silk Charmeuse, 5% Elastin. Imported fabric.

PRODUCTION AND RETURNS:
Made to order, on demand sustainable manufacturing.
The Aimée is one of my favorite pieces this year and almost didn't make the cut. The collection was finished, but I felt the group needed one last piece that was feminine and flirty to offset the structural lines of the other designs. I grabbed a rectangle of silk charmeuse, sat down at the machine, and the Aimée came together. She wasn't pre-planned or sketched, but developed organically at the sewing machine. Which is one of many ways new designs happen in the studio.
The detail of the flutter speaks for itself and the waist has a hidden tie that allows you to create a beautiful oval shape on the body.
This top is gorgeous on it's own, but would look fantastic under a great jacket or a soft wrap. I also love it as a luxury lounge piece for around the house. I'm wearing it with a sweater knit lounge pant and Zac Posen faux fur slide.
