Siren Clothing Review

June 23, 2017

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Siren Clothing shop and of course, I had to try EVERYTHING on! 

 

Siren Clothing is a Sunshine Coast based vintage inspired clothing label with a shop front in Eumundi Square (at the Eumundi Markets) and a HUGE online store. The designer Rebecca Brimblecombe, has a true passion and appreciation for vintage silhouettes. She designs her clothing with practically and ease of wear in mind. What I loved most about her designs were the hem lengths, fit and bodices that covered bra straps (one of her pet peeves with modern fashion). 

 

With 38 designs just in the dresses, I could not possibly try everything on (but I tried), Rebecca sells her most popular designs from the shop front with her website bursting at the seems with all of her stock (currently with an impressive sale section). 

The standout dress for me was the Paris. Which is a very flattering (and surprisingly modest) 50s style cross over design that is available in many variations such as swing and wiggle skirt, cap sleeve and 3/4 sleeve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You know I love my wiggles! The new Gina sarong dress is a show stopper with the beautiful scooped neckline and faux sarong detail. And the best part is all of the wiggle designs are made in a comfortable crease free fabric so you don't have to worry about the skirt getting creases during wear (one of my pet peeves with wiggles). 

 

 

 

The Carmen is a style of dress I own in many varieties from other clothing brands. It features a sweet heart neckline with an elastic raglan sleeve that can be worn on or off the shoulder. I found the fit of the armbands to be very comfortable. Something I take note of now, as the elastic of some of my other dresses and tops I have in this style tend to leave red marks on my arms at the end of the day.  It also comes in tops too! Perfect to match with the cute floral pencil skirts on offer. 

 

 

 

Then comes the Gina, Ballerina and Grace swing dresses, where the necklines get respectively higher. With the Grace being a high Grace Kelly inspired neck and back. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And of course, you can't talk vintage silhouettes without a classic halter like the Marylin which features the same cross over bust like the Paris.

 

I told you there are ALOT of dress designs didn't I? Then comes Julie with her scooped neckline and underbust gathers, the Bacall shirt dress and Portrait with the classic wide collar detail. 

 

Most of the dresses include a matching belt, and side seam pockets are being added to all new stock (yew!). I love how classic these designs are and they all easily accommodate my E cup bust. My measurements are bust: 91cm, waist: 73cm and hips: 96cm. I am right down the middle of size chart between Small and Medium. I tried on the Small as I like my clothing to be firm and fitted, but the stretch cotton allowed for movement and stretch with nothing felting like it would not fit after eating a buffet for dinner or on bloated days. The sizing is amazingly consistent between all styles, which was a relief that I can purchase a Small online and know it will fit properly no matter what style I choose. 

 

 

Siren Clothing stocks sizes XS (AU8) to XL (AU16/18). I highly recommend popping into the shop at the Eumundi Square or check out their website. Now to try and narrow down my choices - way too many beautiful dresses to choose from!
