Ladies Mess Dress - Crepe or Taffeta

#1
Hi. Quick question for any female seniors. Is it best to buy a crepe or taffeta mess dress? i've heard that one is easier to clean than the other and was after some experienced opinions.

Crepe is easier to clean and also doesn't end up with permanent creases all over it like taffeta does.

If RAF, Crimplene.

Some form of wipe-clean PVC mess kit sounds...optimum? With peephole bodice and split crotch lycra shorts. For those special dinner-nights of course.

There was a choice between the two when I bought mine in 199mumble. I just had a look at one mess dress supplier online that says that the RAMC is crepe (that would sound sooo much better spoken aloud!!).

I see the NAAFI mentality has invaded another serious thread :)

Oh, and not only does taffetta crease really easily, it's a right bugger to get puke out of. Apparently.

Who really gives a flying F***. Ask your RSM what he thinks. I think you will get the general idea.
