One of the advantages of being a small business is getting to know your customers. We love meeting you, seeing your photos on social media, and hearing your feedback. You told us that you want dresses with three-quarter sleeves, so here they are!
Many women tell us they feel more comfortable with covered arms, often because of perceived flaws. Those wonderful upper limbs that we use to carry and dance and hug get subjected to endless scrutiny. Of course, we love your arms (and all your other beautiful body parts!), but feeling confident is paramount. If you feel your best with coverage between your shoulders and elbows, we’re here to help.
Our Shelly dress has been one of our favourites in recent years. With a deliciously full skirt, Shelly has excellent twirl potential, and the buttoned cuffs finish the sleeves perfectly. The star of this design is the neck detail – three sweet buttons and a two angled straps draw the eye. This dress is currently available in three lovely prints.
Roxy joined our collection last year. This dress has a wonderfully vintage vibe, with an open portrait collar and a crinoline-ready skirt. The Roxy comes in five solid jewel tones, and blends beautifully with a multitude of accessories.
Our newest 3/4 sleeve dress is the Stacy. This cut was created to highlight your assets, with a ruched bodice and a chevron shaped underbust design that emphasizes your waistline. Right now, you can get Stacy in a spicy, fire-engine red, and a deep, regal purple – stay tuned for black and navy pinstripe versions coming soon!
Remember, we also sell shrugs, so sleeves can be added to any of the dresses you love. And please keep telling us what you want to wear, because we’re listening!
XOX Cherry Velvet
A question that we get asked a lot is what style of Cherry Velvet dress will fit me if I am smaller to medium-sized (B or C cup) in the bust. We've written this blog post to help you find your best fit and address this very question.
One of the best examples of this is our Chrissy dress (more Chrissy dresses will come in Spring 2019 too)
Paige is a style that's also more accommodating of a smaller bust line.
Or the Roxy
Other choices are Shelly, Lana, Veronica and new Elizabeth (coming very soon!)
We try our best to accommodate all sizes and shapes but it's not always possible to fit everybody. However, we're always happy to help you get a great fitting dress in an honest and friendly way. And the best way to do that is by taking your measurements with a proper tape measure and then emailing us:
Bust: Fullest part of your bust (this is NOT your bra size)
Underbust: Right where the bra goes around your chest under your bust.
Waist: Smallest part of your torso
Hips: Widest part of your lower body (this could be your stomach or the top of your thighs)
Height: Just in case you didn't know :)...the distance from the soles of your feet to the top of your head.
We've created this short instructional video to show you how easy it is to get your measurements.
That's it! If you have any questions about fit, we are always here help. Just so you know we are plus size ladies ourselves and there is no judgment here ever!
