Bamboo Body

Lovelies, I’m at it again.

I’m about to go on about fabric – stay with me though…

Yes fabric.

The difference between me feeling utterly fantastic or a steaming dripping wreck!

Honestly, add a serious hot flush to polyester and weather dependant, it can be disasterville for me.

In these moments, not only do I facially resemble a beetroot (move over red tomatoes, purple is my hot-sweat colour of choice), anxiety then quickly washes over me, as I hyperventilate at the mere thought of adding sweat patches to that equation – this scenario truly fills me with utter dread.

Think gorgeous cobalt blue or light grey with a dark damp patch on the front – Na, not a good look on anyone!

You see. As a whole, my affliction is made all the worse because I very rarely perspire (except for when I’m exercising of course – this I can cope with).

Lucky duck I know.

So when I do, it shocks the life out of me – making me sweat even more.

Of course, I still get loads of those hot and bothered 50 year old moments, but that’s where it ends.

The only exception to this rule is if I’m completely crapping myself apprehensive or petrified.

Yep. It’s that simple.

You see beauties, I’m a firm believer you should avoid anything or anyone that makes you break out in a sweat of any kind – hot or cold 😉

So, say Hello to my latest wardrobe friend from Bamboo Body.

Cute, stylish and cool to boot.

Bamboo Body

Bamboo Maxi Dress $129.95 Navy and White Bamboo Bodies (wearing M) | Rhythm Heel $249.00 Mimco |

When I received the email from sisters Amanda and Elouise (the creators of Bamboo Body) I knew who they were.

Oh yes I did.

They were already on my radar  – my quest to finding wearable stylish clothes that ticked all the boxes in the fabric department, has growning for a while.

Bamboo Facts:

Did you know that bamboo is softer and more breathable than cotton?

Did you also know that it has natural moisture wicking, its anti-bacterial and full of anti-odour properties?

And to top that off…

The bamboo plant is such a ferocious grower that releases more oxygen than trees!

Who would have thought.

The Dress:

What I love most about this gorgeous frock is the feel. It’s so light, yet super soft against your skin.

From the moment I slipped it on, I was comfortable.

It’s also the perfect dress to take you almost anywhere.

Wear as is, with your favourite wedges or flats on a hot and sticky day for comfort and stylishness. Add a scarf around your shoulder when the temp drops.

Add a linen jacket, a pair of your favourite sneakers and your coolest sunnies for a crisp statement look.

Or simply tie a denim shirt around the waist and throw on your flip-flops to do the groceries.

It just works

Yep. I think it’s about time I added more bamboo to my wardrobe…poor Jonny 😉


Don’t you agree there is something oh so sweet about pulling on your clothes, knowing they are working just that bit harder for you?

Any bamboo in your wardrobe…or your knicker drawer?


  • Please note: No polyester was harmed whilst writing this blog post 😉 You will still find plenty of it in my wardrobe.
