It seems like last night's show was heavy with the "scuba" items. There are lot of items now with Neoprene.

Opinions?

The only neoprene I know is used in shoe inserts, if it is similar I will say no thank you

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I don't think I would wear that. I imagine it would be like a Ponte knit, but shinier maybe?

I'd have to feel it. LOL

I bought the skirt, I so rarely wear a print, I decided to try it. I liked the length.

The skirt is pretty

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Awful ... must have been designed by men after watching/reading Fifty Shades of Grey.

I kinda love neoprene/scuba. You're seeing it pretty much everywhere these days from big name designers--Balenciaga, givenchy, alexander wang, etc. It's an interesting mix of sporty and chic. Plus, because of the nature of the fabric, it holds shape really well, and it's easy to care for.

What does it feel like... plastic? Does it make you sweat?
