F.A.Q.

Are your blouses easy care?
All of our women's work blouses are designed to be as easy care as possible. They are all machine washable at 40 degrees or lower. If you then hang them on a hanger to dry, they'll dry quickly and require very minimal ironing. Any styles containing cotton - will need more of a press than others- check the [fabric care] tab under the images on each style for specific details.
 
What is the sizing of your blouses like?
Designed specifically for the uniform marketplace, our ladies blouses are generally sized to be on the generous side. Some styles are more fitted than others, so please check the [fit details] tab under the images on each style for specific details. There's also a size guide towards the top right hand-side, just under the description. Where are the size guides? The link to the size guide can be found towards the top of each product page on the right hand-side just under the description.
 
What is the fit of your blouses like?
All of the blouses are designed with working life in mind and so that they can be worn loose or tucked in. We are therefore always mindful of issues such as making sure necklines aren't too low, making sure the styles are long enough in the body to remain discreet when bending down, ensuring there's enough reach across the shoulders for lifting and stretching and ensuring short sleeves aren't too short.
 
Some of our styles are more fitted than others e.g Louise has panels & is a more contemporary, fitted look, while Freya doesn't have panels & is a more 'classic' fit. Please check the [fit details] tab under the images on each style for specific details.
 
Can I order sizes smaller & larger than 6 or 26?
Yes. Smaller or larger sizes can be made on a 'make to order' basis. For further details please contact sales@vortexdesigns.co.uk or call us and speak to an advisor on 01582 467 690.
 
I need a uniform that will appeal to all my staff, who vary in size and also in age from late teens to early 60s, what do you suggest?
Our colours co-ordinate across the styles so if you can't agree on one style, you can pick a couple. For example our Freya & Zoe are all in the same fabric & the same colours so you could have a combination of blouses to suit the individuals. You could also mix styles such as the Amelie Berry blouse and the Lillie Berry blouse so the individuals can chose between the contemporary, eye catching prints or a plain everyday essential blouse whilst still retaining a unified look.
 
I am buying for a group of receptionists at a medical centre, which of your blouses are easy care & distinctive so staff are easily identifiable?
Any of our print blouse would be good option here. Do you have any maternity tops or blouses? Yes we have a maternity tunic which can be made in our fabrics. For further details please contact sales@vortexdesigns.co.uk or call us and speak to an advisor on 01582 467 690.
