Have you got the feeling that evening dresses are uncomfortable? This problem is officially solved here, as the gown is sewn with a metallic jersey that is exceptionally comfortable to wear. Thanks to the extra draping accessory, it also shapes a dream decolleté.

A sexy length, a beguiling twist at the neckline and a shimmery Lurex jersey work together for a hot mini dress style that is best worn with simplicity. No extra flash of jewellery is necessary. Those not completely comfortable in this length can wear this style with leather leggings or opaque tights.

A super-feminine cut and an extravagant fabric combine with this sheath dress – featuring a heart neckline and shaping bands at the waistline – for the perfect middle ground between classic and sexy. The wide straps easily keep the built-in bra out of sight.

Headed straight from the office to dinner? The sharply cut blazer is sewn in a sequin fabric that adds a touch of chic and glamour points to any outfit. Flap pockets, as well as slits at the sleeve and back make it a masterpiece.

    Thank you for the Instant Glamour collection. One of the designs in particular caught my attention. The draped piece will be perfect for a smallish piece of knit with gold sequins, and that will be worn over a black knit with metallic threads for the dress. Both have been in my stash, waiting for the perfect pattern, and this looks like it. So again, thank you!

    As for the spelling mix-up: The English spelling of the undergarment is ‘brassiere’, taken from the French word that is spelled almost the same (accent grave on the first ‘e’. The Spanish spelling is brasier for the same article of clothing.

    There is no English word spelled that way, at least not in my dictionary. In English, the metal container used for cooking with live coals is spelled with a ‘z’. It’s ‘brazier’.

    Wow I see I am not the only one who caught the misspelling, mispronunciation, and vastly different meaning. Hubby laughed when I read it to him, said, “gives whole new meaning to hot mamma”, hehehe!

    Just a note for your editing team: the sheath dress has wide straps to keep a brassiere hidden. A brasier is a metal container holding live coals. Very similar sounding words, but slightly different spelling and hugely different meaning! ;)
