FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Availability:

Are Sonnet James dresses for sale in any retail stores where I can try them on?

No, at this point Sonnet James dresses are only available through our website. We are committed to creating raving fans out of each customer and if the dress you purchased doesn’t work for you please let us know and we are happy to help. 

Will you be restocking sold-out dress styles?

Because restocking depends on our ability to source fabric, we are unable provide an availability date at this time. Follow us on Instagram @sonnetjames and watch the website for updates.

Sizing:

Why don’t you make dresses for curvier women?

Sonnet James dresses should be comfortable, playful, and flattering for all shapes! Each style is made in XS, S, M, L, and XL. Take a look at the sizing guide. Search #sonnetjames on Instagram for a sampling of moms of all shapes and sizes loving their Sonnet James dresses!

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding:

Can I wear my Sonnet James dress throughout my pregnancy?

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 to all 40 weeks).


What size should I order if I am pregnant? Should I get my regular size, or buy a size up?

We recommend buying your non-pregnant size. See the response above, but most of our dress styles should be able accommodate your growing belly throughout the entire pregnancy. If you’ve ordered your regular size you’ll still be able to enjoy it post-baby!

Which dresses are breastfeeding-friendly?

 

Unsure if a dress is breastfeeding-friendly? Each item description for our dresses will answer your questions. The fabric and stitching 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!

Fabric:

Are all Sonnet James dresses made of the same basic fabric?

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.
