The most flattering dress!!

I love this dress so much. It's super flattering, the fit is adjustable and it's so comfortable, especially for a hot climate. And it has pockets - big tick! Thinking about ordering it in another colour, it's that good.

All Round Lovely

Great print and easy to wear, albeit expensive for a kaftan. I would have liked the kaftan to be a few centimeters longer.

Riley

I ordered the Black Kaftan dress, as I already have 2 others. I love the way they feel on and the need to not iron is great. Able to dress them up and down.

I have 2 bikini sets, one wrap suit , 3 kaftan dresses and the black multiway dress. I love all the pieces and get many compliments when wearing them.

The Fabric feel like plastic

While the design of this resort wear item is great and intended for use over swimwear, my experience with the fabric has been less than satisfactory. The material feels synthetic, overly familiar, and uncomfortably sticky when worn. It's important to note that the fabric is made from recycled plastic, which unfortunately impacts its breathability. Despite its eco-friendly intention, the overall feel and performance do not align with the cost, making it a less justified purchase. Additionally, the customer service from this company is very by-the-book, lacking any human contact, which diminishes the appeal and personal touch associated with the brand

We're genuinely sorry to hear about your experience and the disappointment faced when communicating with our customer service team.

As always, we really value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. If we can help with anything further, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at lovemail@baiia.com.au
