Model is 5'9 and wears size XS.
The BOND LITE dress is a mixture of two of your favorite silhouettes. The front features a curved waistline with a shirred effect. The same shirring lends an elegant touch to the poet sleeve finished with a fitted cuff. When it comes to fit, this style is slightly a-line from the chest down and gets slightly wider at the hips due to the shirred fabric dropping from the waist. The high-low hemline mimicks the curved shape at the waist.
The back of this linear look is straight and sleek from the shoulders down. The bottom is cut to be shorter than the front of the dress for a unique asymmetrical hemline from the side.
-Stay true to the size chart for the overall slightly relaxed fit of this style.
SIZE GUIDE: If you fall between two sizes and are wider on the bottom, opt for the larger of the two sizes if you prefer extra wiggle room. Keep in mind that this fabric has plenty of stretch.
LENGTHS AND WIDTHS: Approximate measurements are take when dress is on a flat surface. Lengths are measured from middle of shoulder to the shortest part of the high-low hemline in the front. The back hemline is also measured from the shoulder down (it is approximately
1 1/2-2 inches shorter than the front length for style purposes). For width, double the number for complete circumference around the body.

bond lite MERLOT
It 'SEAMS' that everything always comes together at Linear. Introducing the #linearBONDLITE-our newest frock that you'll instantly fall in love with. It's a reimagined version of our bestselling linear look (#linearBOND), now in a fabric so luxuriously soft and stretchy, it's way beyond basic. An amalgamation of some of your favorite linear looks, think of the BOND LITE as a 2-in-1 creation meant for all occasions.
So here's the long and the short of it...
PARTY FROCK FROM THE FRONT-
-It's playful and pretty with a bit of a punch ( à la features you love from our previous styles).
-Surely you'll fall for the shirring (also found in our BELLE and BOHEME beauties) with a bit of a twist in the form of a..curve (meant to enhance your natural curve)!
-Well, High-Low there! Our signature hemline makes a comeback by copycatting the curve at the waist. But. Wait. There's. More.
STAY SLEEK, MY FRIENDS-
-See the staight cut silhouette in the back of this frock? It's saying 'I mean business, but I'm ok with playtime on the side.' Notice my convoluted way of trying to explain how the the streamlined style on the back of the dress matches up with the fun-filled finesse from the front of this frock. They essentially... BOND together. Insert air quotes where necessary. Wink wink ;)
- Let's talk about all the right angles. Because asymmetry rocks, we cut the back of this dress so it would be one level up from the front (Everyone will see you walk the (asymmetrical) line when you make your grand exit). This concept is most visible at the side seam where the shorter side meets up with the curved edge from the front. Got my point?
Have you fallen in love with this dual concept creation? If so, it's time to get connected with the #linearBONDLITE :)
