It reminds me of the vile outfit my mum used to wear on holiday. Looks like fat lady clothes to me.

ok, as swedishmum has not sat on the fence so to speak, I admit, my granny wouldn't be seen dead in that

god their stuff looks so drab, and so expensive.Surprised they're not selling gas masks and ration coupons fgs!

well i am in the minority but i think if you are tallish it could look fab and less 'trying to hide something' than a sarong
i love it
