            8+ ways to wear (and counting...)

            Sustainable, ultra-soft opaque fabric.

          • The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

            Modal 
            is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
            Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.

          • Fit Advice: Perfect for women of any height from sizes (S-XL). The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks.

    Multiple mediocre options

    I love the idea of this piece in theory, but in reality all you get is a bunch of different options that look mediocre. No one way of wearing it looks particularly good. Each different way of wearing it looks fine at best. Wearing it as a cardigan in particular clearly looks like it's not meant to be a cardigan--it's a different piece of clothing that's trying to be a cardigan.

    Great garment, but confusing!

    Please, please, please do different tutorials for this dress! The ones with just music are impossible to follow, and the text ones don’t match what the wordless videos are doing. Also, for the luvagod, never use a black garment to show these steps! It’s impossible to tell what side is up or what part of the garment she’s grabbing. I was really hoping the dress would be packed with some instructions, and I’m getting really frustrated.

    Get Insured Shipping- No Help Otherwise

    I’ve never odered from Encircled and was excited about trying a sustainable company. I ordered this beautiful dress for an upcoming international trip. I received notification it was delivered, but I never received it. I selected uninsured shipping because I never had an issue with packages going missing. I contacted Encircled through email and received a link to submit a claim with the USPS. After a few emails with Encircled, I was told because I selected uninsured shipping they could not reship my order. I’m so disappointed and writing this so others learn from my error in not choosing insures shipping.

    Broke in one use

    I wanted to love this but a snap broke after one wear. It's hard to travel light when your clothes break after one wear. Customer service didn't seem to understand how major of an issue this was. Maybe if they change their return policy...

    Love this!

    I am in love with this concept. I received my first Chrysalis cardi two weeks ago and love it. Like others my only negative comment is that two of the snaps already came loose and I have only worn the cardi three times! Yikes! Still I am ordering my second cardi today in a different color.
