Dresses, pants, tops, career clothes, some underclothes,
sportswear. Carefully tailored, natural fibers, dyed to order
(so sometimes you have to wait a while), high quality. Good
source of basics. Some pants, dresses, and shirts are available
in petite and/or tall sizes. Some folks feel they aren't
sufficiently responsive to supersize needs; other folks think
they do a good job. They use large models. Pretty colors. They
have their own size chart. Their clothes seem to be long enough
for tall women. "Their leggings are the most comfortable
garments I've ever worn, in a very soft cotton-lycra mix which
does not seem to be available anywhere else. They are receptive
to customer comments." One person said that the environmentally
friendly dyes are not color-fast, but another had no problem
with clothing fading quickly.
