See the article written by Alice Dogruyol entitled “Big girl in a skinny world” in the Daily Mail.

“I have also discovered a must-have for a bigger woman on the beach. The Saress ( £29.99, is an elegant square of creaseless, breathable fabric that effortlessly ties into a crossover dress.

The end result skims and covers everything from wobbly thighs to puffy knees while remaining effortlessly sexy. As soon as I tried it, the familiar feeling of pre-beach panic left me and now I can”t wait to strut my stuff on the sand.

The Saress is available in two lengths, there are loads of prints to choose from and it could easily double up as an evening dress, too.”

Saress Proves a Hot Hit!

It’s this summer’s must-have item for the beach and it’s set to put the West Midlands on the fashion map.

The Saress, created by Wolverhampton designer Julia Fish, has been snapped up by thousands of women across the world.

Last night hundreds of fashion lovers descended on a hotel in the city to get their hands on one while raising thousands of pounds for a good cause.

The charity fashion show was held at The Mount Hotel in Tettenhall, pulling in more than £3,000 for the NSPCC. Organiser Julia, of Exclusive Collections in Tettenhall, was showing off colourful designs of her marvellous creation.

The design – a cross between a sarong and a dress – is billed as the perfect item for a beach holiday.

Professional models and women from the area took to the catwalk to show off the Saress and Wolverhampton department store Beatties was also on hand to show off summer swimwear.

Among the designs were a pale pink Saress, tiger print bikinis and sexy swimsuits. The show took an even more exotic turn when four belly dancers treated on-lookers a lively display.

Julia revealed her designs had been snapped up by women as far afield as France and Japan.

She said: “People have just gone mad for it. So many people around Wolverhampton just love it.”

She said the night had been a real success.

She said: “Everyone put a great deal of hard work into last night’s event so I want to thank everyone.”

The Saress comes in over 19 print fabrics and three solid colours

The Saress is an ingenious yet simple invention, a sure-fire hit for this summer. It”s the flattering yet sexy cross between a dress and a sarong and you cannot get better than this. It”s already been featured on Lorraine Kelly and GMTV, and all gave positive views. We love how versatile it is.

There is a long and short version, it can be used as a dress, a sarong, a t-shirt, anything when you put your mind to it! Team with a floppy sunhat, flip flops and a long necklace and you”ve got the whole look sorted. We love Safari, Pink Bloom, Shell Pink and Blue Lagoon. They even all come with a free beach bag perfect for stuffing a pair of shades, a good book, suntan lotion and flip flops into. They”re oh-so popular with customers going as far as Japan, France and USA. You should definately go out and buy them now before it”s too late.
