To be worn over this garment is the other of the two pieces, manufactured from sheer knitted fabric of 100% nylon, a long-sleeved, tiered robe that can fasten together at the neckline at the center of the full-front opening by means of a tie.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.
