Sybil Dress in Navy Bamboo
A dress that will work hard day and night, layer up effortlessly, summer into cooler weather. This dress is what a 'pro-packer' will hunt down to pack in her suitcase time and time again. THAT dress takes so much of the 'what to wear' angst away. Who needs that on a holiday?!
We are confident THAT dress is THIS dress - The Sybil. This dress feels so lovely on. Made from superior quality bamboo, it feels so soft and silky. There is a weight to this dress that creates a beautiful fall and its cut is very, very thoughtful; caressing curves, not sucking to every lump and bump :)
The navy blue has this brilliance too it. An intensity of colour that is just beautiful. It will go with everything in your suitcase. A great foundation colour to mix n match with.
This dress is part of our Getaway Collection. A collection of hand-picked clothes to travel well with. Easy mix n match pieces to create different looks with less and oh so effortlessly. Layer under the Sybil dress with super soft and comfy Bamboo Leggings and throw over a Scarf to brighten up your outfit. Bit chilly? Layer over with a long line cardigan/vest with extra large armholes so that the batwing sleeves of Sybil sit properly. Add a luxurious wrap and you're set! The Getaway Collection can be found here in the Clothing / Travel Wear section of our online store.

Vintage Paisley Ruched Underwire One Piece Swimsuit
Are you over not being able to find swimmers with good bust support and coverage? Can't stand up in your onepiece because you're long in the body? This swimsuit style is very popular here at Sequins and Sand and girls with a larger bust love it. With its gathered cups that simply expand, you won't necessarily need to go up a size to accommodate your D-E cup bust. Extra wonderful news if you have a narrower back! These swimmers have a generous amount of ruching too so if you are longer in the torso and have a bust cup that's D-E, then this is the onepiece for you as there is more fabric for you to stretch out in.
AND what a stunning print! The colours are magnificent. Team this print with so many block-coloured cover-ups or go for a statement print clash! Plain sarongs will keep things simple. White will lift it beautifully. Deeper navy tones will keep things classically subdued. Plums and raspberry will add a warmth and energy. You can even wear a wide brim hat in natural tones too. This print is so versatile!
Here's why this style is so popular.
- Brilliant gathers and ruching along the bust line than expands with you without having to go up a size ( great for narrow backs but a fuller bust).
- Plenty of bust support with an underwire
- A higher back which means this swimsuit will sit higher under the arms and around the sides of the bust for added support and coverage
- Removable and adjustable straps for a comfortable custom fit - remember a cross-over back will give you 1/2 size more support girls. You can do that with these removable straps.
- A front panel with Powermesh lining to smooth and support a tummy.
- Mid rise leg for a bottom coverage that looks great.
Size and Fit:
Size - Available in sizes 10-22 (while stocks last); Need a hand to find your size? Then go to the Size and Fit Tab to the right and all will be revealed.
Fit - Great for most shapes and a fuller bust girl. Longer torso girls with a D-E bust size love it for the extra length it offers.
