Review by Sharon Smith 4 April 2022
My delivery of Ye-Mak cardis arrived! I’ve recently become a big fan for their colours & retro style texture. But here is some info for you …..
Firstly, I’m a sz S/ in Kitten D’Amour, Hell Bunny & Collectif cardis. I wear sz8 in Review cardis. I like a firm fit with the length hitting my belt waist length.
Ye-Mak are affordable & 3/4 ballet length sleeves, soft cotton and cute textured knit with matching buttons. But!! A few important things to know:
- The darker colours are black labelled and are made in Cambodia. They fit tighter and I prefer them. The paler colours are white label and made in China & about a 1/2 size or slightly more in size so great for people who like a relaxed fit or have wider waistline. (see Ed note below)
- While it isn’t the care label instructions- I have washed the paler, bigger fitting cardis in 30 deg water & line drying till almost dry then popping in a lingerie bag to dry in order to shrink. The smallest size is S so I can’t size down but I would recommend usual fit for dark & down size for lighter colours.
- Final point- the MAK stock photos are not a good representation of the actual colours. If this is super important to you, ask Kitty Deluxe for a photo in natural light otherwise wait & see what arrives, for example the green is not the bright Kelly Green I expected. Overall they are a fun addition to a colourful wardrobe for a great price, they are cotton, they don’t pill like Review cardis and they suit retro styling xx
