The Full Story+

Put on our Malay Shift Dress and you'll know summer's on its way.

Fun, stylish and practical, this lightweight, sleeveless linen number will look just as good at an English garden party as it would on the Italian Riviera.

It’s made from our Performance Linen™ fabric which is cool and comfortable just like traditional 100% linen, but has all the practical benefits of being blended with modern technical fibres to make it more durable, quicker drying and easier to care for.

If you've spent the morning on the beach and you want to restore its neat crisp appearance for the afternoon, just give it a quick once-over with a travel iron and you'll be ready for anything.

Fabric: Performance Linen™ 54% polyester 46% linen.

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

PERFORMANCE LINEN™

Performance Linen™ is an advanced blend of natural linen and technical synthetics which offers all the benefits of linen – with none of the downsides. Just like natural linen, it’s cool and comfortable in the heat. But it’s also easy to wash, highly resistant to unsightly creasing and far more durable. In fact, it’s perfect for travel.

Nice Style but orange stripe see-through - shows pockets and underwear

★★☆☆☆

First time I have tried a Rohan dress. Unfortunately the fabric means that the side seam pockets are very visible from the front as are pants and bra (even with non VPL and flesh colour). Would have exchanged for the navy version but it was not in stock at the time in my size. Very sad as nice style and easy to wear.

Malay shift dress.

★★★★★

Please make this Malay shift dress with a small cap sleeve (like the maxi dress one). I’d love to buy it but for those of us older customers the sleeveless version does not flatter the upper arms.

Hi Margaret, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our Malay Shift Dress. I shall pass your feedback onto the relevant department.

I have only ever brought walking gear from you & have always been extremely pleased with my purchases . So when l saw this dress at the beginning of lockdown l decided to buy it, in fact l brought two as l couldn’t make up my mind & you were offering free delivery & returns . I brought the Navy one & the Pink one & love them both , The quality is superb they feel & look like linen , they wash & iron like a dream . Well done Rohan.

Hi Sue, glad to hear that you are happy with your purchase.

A Lockdown Success

★★★★★

I prefer to try before buy so ordering this dress was my first attempt at internet clothes shopping. It's perfect. It has an extremely flattering cut and fits beautifully. I am sometimes size 12 and sometimes 14 and decided to go for the larger size (after 8 weeks of isolation and not much exercise!). It's smart enough for evenings and comfortable for hot days. All I need now is the opportunity to go out and where it!!
