I got this as a gift, and it is a great dress! My recipient already had one Shenova dress she loves, and she's a big fan of Lovelace, so I knew this would be a popular dress. She wore it for the first time yesterday, and got several comments. Great dresses with awesome STEM themes!
Perfect fit! Nice material. It isn’t flimsy and will wear well. Well constructed and sewn. And I love the Fibonacci series pattern.
Looks good and fits well. The geomertic print is very reminiscent of Indian block printed clothes - which I love. The orange glow of the center of the M87 blackhole on the black background makes it look like it is glowing. It is a bit snugger than I usually like (the fabric is stretchy) but it looks good.
Loved the dress. Good fit. Im a climate scientist so I will wear it a lot!
I absolutely love the neuroscience retina dress! It is beautifully made and soooo comfortable. The initial size I ordered was too big but the exchange process was very easy and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Although I'm a molecular neurobiologist, I have worked on drug discovery projects that use x-ray crystallography. I am also a huge fan of Rosalind Franklin. So this dress with the iconic photo was selected above more "obvious" choices. I was thrilled with it. It travels very well, fits perfectly (thanks to helpful discussions with Renee), has a classic design that looks good in any situation - but also has the potential for identifying fellow geeks! People in the know immediately comment (earning themselves imaginary bonus points with me) and a few have gone on to also get this dress. LOVE it. I already have a 2nd and am now planning my 3rd dress...
After buying my much-loved Rosalind Franklin dress, I decided I needed another science-themed dress and chose this one. Partly for the statement it makes about climate change and partly because it looks a lot like a heat map with gene expression profiling data I have generated in the lab. This is a wonderful, easy-to-wear dress that is suitable for multiple occasions and situations. I love the fact that it travels well so I can put it in my tiny carry on and it still looks immaculate when I put it on. Renee was also incredibly helpful with shipping, timing it so that it arrived at my hotel the day before an academic meeting (DNA damage - nothing to do with climate change, but this dress can still pull it off!).
The dress was comfortable, brightly colored, and fit well (thanks to the fit guide information). I wore it to my Biomedical Sciences Master's program reunion and it was a hit!
When ordering something like this I always run into two problems. First the colors. Either they are too faded/dull and blended or they are bright to the point of gaudy and cheap. The colors on this dress were, however, perfect. The dress looks like it was designed as a dress and not just a science themed gimmick.
The second issue is usually fit. In order to fit a wide variety of sizes the cut of a lot of vendors is one that is designed for a mythical 'average' person. This often results in a garment that does not fit anyone at all. The way this dress has been designed, as well as due to the choice of the material, actually allows for a perfect fit and one is that is quite comfortable.
Overall, this is a brilliant looking dress that simultaneously makes a statement and is comfortable. Honestly, I kind of wished there was a process to ask the designer whether they could do a bespoke design based on one my wife's experiments. I would highly recommend anyone who is considering this purchase to go for it. You will not be disappointed.
Title says it all -- this is my new favorite dress! I've definitely violated a few societal norms though because I've worn it three times in a week...but this dress is worth it! The sizing is great, and the quality is awesome. It's super comfortable and definitely gets people talking about space whenever you're around! Thank you Shenova!
The gravitational wave print is awesome. The bag is well constructed. I can’t wait to use it for work.
Brilliant dress, such a brilliant idea. Have worn it a few times already for my work as an energy and carbon manager. It always starts a conversation. The fit is great, just as described by the measurements. I love all the clothes designs on the website and just wish it was cheaper to import them in to the UK!
I wanted this dress as soon as I saw it (of course, there were a number of designs I wanted once I went to the Shenova site and saw them all). It was a perfect fit and I wore it out the day I received it - just to run errands but It's the kind of dress that goes from grocery store to dinner at a restaurant. The mythical day-to-evening dress! While I was waiting in line at the grocery store, a woman complimented me on the beautiful pattern. I explained it was climate change data and gave a synopsis of the info provided by Shenova. Everyone in line was instantly engaged and we all discussed the facts on everything from the sad and instant visual shock these stats provided to the idea that Holly was able to create such an appealing pattern from them. I had not expected this reaction! If this dress can inspire such a conversation in a single, brief encounter, imagine what it can do over the course of it's life in my wardrobe! Exciting to think that some minds might be changed and/or inspired by seeing this data displayed in such a simple, accessible way.
As with all my Shenova dresses, this gets a five star rating. The new fabric is a bit thicker and a bit heavier, giving the dress a nicer shape (not that the previous dresses weren't nice before!). The colours are exactly as on the website, with the pinks being slightly redder in real life. The fit is perfect; Holly was super helpful in altering a Medium to fit my cycling legs. I'll be wearing it with pride to the SPIE Optics & Photonics conference in August :-D
Caught the attention of many folks who came out to celebrate the anniversary of the first humans landing on the moon. Great conversation starter. Great piece to show the beauty, science and perspective from the Moon. Comfortable and fun dress.
The dress was everything I expected and even more! I received a quick response on my question online. It is absolutely wonderful that Shenova makes these inspiring dresses! Thank you!
This dress is perfect for representing women in STEM. I can't wait to wear it to my next computer science event. The dress fits great and travels well; no wrinkles right out of the suitcase. The material is soft and comfortable. Thanks to Shenova for producing this unique and beautiful dress!
This dress is so wonderful! The pattern, fabric and cut is so flattering. Love the fact that I can wear gravitational waves all the time now!
I really love my ovarian histology dress. It is well made, comfortable, and fits well. I highly recommend the company!
First of all, it's worth noting that Holly went above and beyond, making sure this dress got to me on time before I traveled abroad for a wedding.
The dress was a huge hit on the day. It sat beautifully and was very comfortable to be in for a long day of celebrations. A large number of people came up to me to talk about the dress and how great it was. It's also unusual, so it's a good conversation-starter.
The wedding itself was outdoors in 100 degree weather, and while I will admit that I was sweating in the dress, you actually couldn't tell at all, looking at it. (Some of the cotton dresses other people wore looking at lot damper and had visible water stains)
A final note. While I think this was a pretty unique event, I will add the dress is remarkably durable. I was nudged into a swimming pool before the day was out. The dress held up perfectly. The air was hot so I was dry in about an hour. There was no damage to the dress at all.
Overall, I love this dress and wholeheartedly recommend buying it.
I am loving this dress. It arrived in time and the fit is perfect. I have two STEM gala dinners coming up so I look forward to showing the dress off. One thing to realise when you order in the US from Europe, if the value is over 22 euro you must also pay import duties!
Many of my friends have already added the website to their favourites to order their favourite!
I could not love this dress more! It’s the perfect fit, a beautiful design and made me feel like a rockstar on my recent visit to JPL! It’s rover-approved 😍
Fits really well, flattering cut! Also very light and easy to fold/travel with.
I've been wanting this dress forever and noticed recently the dress shapes are more of an A-line shape now! So happy I purchased this dress - great pattern and it was so comfortable! Worked out perfectly for my lecture.
The design is attractive and it fits well. Very happy with the dress. Delivery to Sweden took a bit longer than anticipated due to postal service issues.
