Inspired by the modern asymmetry of the Sideswept Dhoti, and the straight leg cut of the Lounge Lunghi, the Side Lunghi is a tailored combination of your favourites. It lounges just the same, and folds flatteringly when wrapped. Featuring the Avani motif, both jacquard and ikat techniques were incorporated to create this timeless look.
Nadia fits a US Size 4, she is 165cm tall and wears Matter Size 1.
The flattering sideswept feature folds over to the front for an asymmetric detail, and is secured with a fabric belt. Finished with a buttoned welt pocket on the back for functionality.
100% medium weight cotton. Selectively bundled and dyed by hand with azo-free dyes, the threads are then handloomed. Colour and weaving variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Wash separately the first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside-out. Cool iron inside-out.
I’ve been supporting Matter for a while and love the mission behind it. However, sizing is a bit of a gamble sometimes. After reading reviews and measuring several times I went for a size 2 (5’5” 135lbs). They are so big on me that alterations won’t help given the fold on the pants :( Returning or exchanging is not an option...Sad since I really love the fabric and style. The same happened with sideswept dhotis but in size 1 which pull my thighs every time I try to sit. I have never been able to wear them :(
