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.

The Oliva has been a top seller since my 1st collection and I'm excited to offer it in a new fabric. I designed this maxi dress to fall comfortably over the body in a gracious column that is not body conscious. If you have the original Oliva, this design is slightly fuller at the hemline.
This beautiful mid weight rib has a bit of a firm hand and holds it's shape well. Oliva is a sophisticated maxi dress that combines chic, plus comfort in today's leisure way of dressing. I love the slightly extended shoulder that offers a fuller coverage than most maxi dresses on the market.
I AM EXCITED TO OFFER THE LATEST IN RESPONSIBLE VISCOSE PRODUCTION FROM LENZING™.
