The Brioche Dress is a maxi-length dress with a shirred bodice. It is made out of 100% Cotton Poplin.

The dress has a shirred bodice with a drop waist. We have designed the shirring to be loose for maximum gathering/a more flattering fit across the body and chest. The shirring has a minimising effect across those areas. The dress has a scooped neckline with lettuce hem finish.

The Brioche Dress has full length, puffed sleeves finished with elastic. The elastic is intended to sit slightly loose off of your wrist. 

The skirt has some gathering and is full in shape, making it an easy fit across your hips. 

Most importantly, it has pockets!

Designed in Australia and made ethically in China.

Fit Notes

Fitting true to size, take your regular VH dress size.

Intended for a regular fit through the bodice and body. We have designed it to be semi-loose/shirring to be gathered.

You can go down a size if you want the body to be more body-con/more stretch in shirring.
