The Maanguko dress, also known as the 'magic dress' (when you own one, you'll know why) is a classic summer maxi, flattering on all shapes and is supportive on larger bust sizes. The front features an oversized frill over the bust, the back a low plunging V shape with a tail train cascading to the back hem. The over shoulder ties with handmade cotton tassels on the ends feed through loops at the back and tie in the middle or it can be worn as a halter neck leaving a totally open back.
100% Rayon (rayon is made from renewable cellulosic plants and is biodegradable)
