Ahoy there! Alicia here <(")
A couple of weeks ago we made an announcement that we were changing the cut of the Printer Skater Dresses so that they were more comfortable :) We tried them on some of our girls at BMHQ and they were really happy. But since every lady is different we decided to invite a bunch of different Sharkies in to BMHQ last Friday to feel the differences for themselves!
The changes we made to the Printed Skater Dress cut were:
- Lowered the scoop neckline a few centimetres
- Lowered the racer neckline slightly
- Slightly shortened the straps
- Added some more room in the bust
- Lowered the arm-holes slightly
- Added 1cm of length to the L skirt and 2cm to the XL skirt
But what does this mean Alicia?!?!
Well it means that you've got less booby squish, less arm jubblies, a little more chest and if you're in the L or XL a little more length. And for those of you fretting that because we shortened the straps the dress will be shorter, never fear! The straps decided that once we lowered the scoop neck they would get a bit stretchier so it should sit in about the same place as before.
It also means you can be just as happy as these ladies!
AND these ladies!!!
AND then these ladies were just so raven!!! ;)
Many selfies were taken!
Then we thought...hmm...how are we going to thank these wonderful Sharkies for coming in and giving us their feedback? Well we threw open the doors to the sample room and had a mini sample sale! We also hid a few sneak peeks around the place and on some people ;)
But overall the new Skater Dress cut was a hit with the Sharkies that came to visit us!!! We got lots of positive feedback that it was much more comfortable under their arms and they felt more confident wearing the racer at the front!
We did get some Sharkies request a Long Torso skater dress and jL assured them it was in the works! AND GUESS WHAT!?!?! IT IS!!!
We'll be going live with Made To Order Long Torso Skater Dress options for the Lost Puppies release!!! There will be an extra inch of fabric in the Skater Dress top which will in turn make the skirt longer! LT ladies rejoice!!!
Thank you to everyone involved with the Skater Dress fitting! We had an awesome time and hope that we get to do more events like this in the future!
Lots of love from your friendly BM fitting event team: jL, Alicia, Charli and Lana! Oh and we're wearing sneak peeks ;) (except jL)
