Bombycidae Silk Dress
Delivery within 3 weeks
The "Bombycidae" constitute a family of Lepidoptera, the most famous of which is certainly "Bombyx Mori" the Bombyx of the mulberry tree, whose caterpillar is commonly called "silkworm". Made from silk satin, it has an elegant plunging neckline and a bareback for a bold and sensual look. Its slit allows freedom of movement: you can dance with confidence all night. This piece sensually reveals the curves of the body for a modern and feminine look. It is suitable for all body types because it is easily adjustable at the waist and neck.
