Over 20 years ago, Marilyn Cobban started Blue Sky Clothing out of the back of a VW van in small-town Balfour BC. Her vision was to help women of all sizes and body types find beautiful styles in natural, breathable fabrics. Since then, Blue Sky has established nine locations in BC and a growing wholesale business. The company’s values are to be kind to the people who make the clothes, kind to the environment, and kind to all body types. As such this fair-trade company specializes in natural fibers, including bamboo, cotton, wool, cashmere, and modal in a range of sizes to fit and flatter most bodies.
Cut in a long, slightly A-line shape, the Lanai dress falls gently, skimming the body: not too tight, but enough to allow you to celebrate your curves. A simple V-neck with ruching is the only interruption to the fall of fabric, so the eye is drawn up to the wearer's neck and face. This deliberate focus makes the dress extraordinarily easy to wear, and provides a beautiful base for accessories.
