Let me preface this post with this fact: Linen breaths, polyester doesn’t!
This lovely Cynthia Rowley dress looks like it would be perfect for a hot summer day at the Polo fields….
….but it proved to be a bit problematic. I know what, your thinking, “it’s linen! How could that be bad?” Well let me tell you, despite its linen shell, it is lined with polyester. I felt like I was in a sweat suit all afternoon. This terrible synthetic layer twisted and stuck to me with every move…. I couldn’t wait to get out of it and slip in to something a little more comfortable…..
Run away from Polyester linings!
I think it all ended up working out.
But the moral of the story is CHECK YOUR LININGS!!
Stick with natural fibers like Cotton or silk.
