Sonnet James uses three different fabric weights for different dress designs:
Mid-weight: rayon and spandex or micro modal and spandex
Heavy-weight: nylon, rayon and lycra
Woven: 100% rayon
The mid-weight fabric is a bit more casual, cooler and perfect for an everyday relaxed fit. The heavy-weight fabric offers more complete coverage of undergarment lines so the dresses can be more form-fitted and sophisticated, while remaining utterly comfortable.
Sonnet James dresses are comfortable, playful, and flattering for all shapes & sizes! Each style is made in XXS,,XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL and for select styles we offer Tall sizing. Take a look at the sizing guideto find the size that will best suit you. You can also search #sonnetjames on Instagram for a sampling of moms of all shapes and sizes loving their Sonnet James dresses!
Yes! Most of our dress styles accommodate a growing baby bump beautifully. Please keep in mind that our heavy-weight fabrics (nylon, rayon and lycra) offer superb shaping and coverage, so they may not stretch up to 40 weeks.
Congratulations! We recommend buying your non-pregnant size. Most of our dress styles should be able accommodate your growing belly throughout the entire pregnancy. If you order your regular size, you will also be able to enjoy it post-baby!
A lot of our dresses are breastfeeding-friendly. Review the item description for a dress to see if it reccomended for breastfeeding. The fabric and stitching of our reccomended dresses are super stretchy and have amazing "memory," so the neckline bounces right back. If the neckline seems looser after wearing the dress for several days, just wash it in cold water, hang it to dry, and the neckline will be just like new!
