In Bali hati is the word for heart. Yet hati-hati means "watch out" and is often seen on hazard alert road signs.
This dress was named as I walked into the room in my first finished sample to my man and friend shouting out "hati-hati!!!" as if I may cause an accident to an innocent witness by enshrining my body in this dress. Without wanting to cause any beauty inflicted harm… let's just say IT IS a head turner, 100% guaranteed.
Here are a few tips >>>
If you are busty, get the sizing that is accurate for the bust measurement. If you are smaller chested with a big booty or hourglass shaped, the booty area of this dress is designed stretch more whereas the top cannot stretch as much - so base your sizing decision more upon your bust size.
Just to give you an idea of how stretchy this dress is in the midriff... I have seen mamas rock this dress through pregnancy.
If you are someone who doesn't feel like you have an hourglass figure, and prefer to wear something looser on the top - the hati skirt with a looser top might be good choice... as you can get the booty hugging action, while keeping some drape and flowing going on the top. Yet you still may be surprised by how much you love yourself in the dress versus the skirt.

95% high grade non-pilling eco rayon / 5% spandex
Unlike most man-made fibers, rayon is not synthetic. It is made from wood pulp, a naturally-occurring, cellulose-based raw material. It was also made in a closed-loop process, meaning the by-product that some rayon productions release into the waterways is here re-used and therefore qualifies as an eco fabric.
To keep your dress in the best possible condition for many years to come, best to wash it in cold/warm water and air dry it. It won’t get destroyed in the dryer, yet it is good to understand that the lycra and elastic content that makes this dress so amazing will break down faster under high heat. That goes for all fabrics that are stretchy. I also recommend looping the tail of the dress up and over the hanger to take the weight off the neckline, as you want the wear and tear to be from wearing it, not from hanging on its own weight in your closet.

I happen to LOVE rayon but it is a toxic fabric to manufacture unfortunately. If this company could use recycled fabric somehow otherwise no go for me. A NOTE FROM THE DESIGNER: Hi Cha Cha! I appreciate your concern. I wish I could reach out to you in person but there's no email to do so... ;) I am not sure if you have read the fabric description for the hati dress. It is made from high grade, non-pilling, long-lasting eco rayon (derived from plant pulp) Not all rayon is made with poor practices. This particular rayon is made in a closed loop facility that recycles the by-product and reuses it. It is also noteworthy that even when I wash and dry an entire load of this material there is virtually zero lint/ shedding into the waterways. Which is due to the quality of this material and how it was spun to begin with. I honor your choices to have the most care for the earth. And while it can be hard to entirely win the battle all the way down the line without having any negative impact on our environment I do feel grateful for this particular rayon supplier as it is made with superior practices.
I got this in white but I already have it in black. its just great. fits a range of sizes bc of the design. I am 4'9 and have the xs.
I love this dress sooo much! I found one at a consignment shop and fell in love and had to look them up to buy another. Definitely my favorite dress I own!
I have four of this same dress , different colors. This is my favorite.
So lovely. Great material and fits my body like a glove. I feel super sexy wearing it and can't wait for warmer weather!
I am under 5 feet and was worried it would be too long. I got the xs and it worked out. I probably don't have it stretching as much as someone else does and it fits kind of longer on me, but not bad bc of the front being shorter. I have it on for work, boots and a blazer over it. its great.
I am trying to order it now! I will definitely order more because the quality is amazing!
This dress has been a favorite for years! I just ordered my 4th one in burgandy and its stunning!!!
