Luana is a fully lined dress with an accentuated waist. It has a corset-style, close-fitting bodice with front and back princess seams reinforced with boning. The semi-fitted skirt is flared from the waist down thanks to triangular panels in the princess seams. The dress has a deep square neckline and closes with an invisible zipper in the center back seam. All the princess and panel seams feature decorative topstitching. Luana is above-knee length.
