If you look in the photo you can see red straps under the chest that make a cross. I didn't notice this before ordering and those are actually an elastic material which surprised me. They don't bother me at all I just wouldn't have guessed from the photo that they would be elastic. Also the two areas on the top where the material meets is similar to a button closure, so they can be opened that way
They do feel somewhat delicate so I would suggest hand washing, even though I don't hand wash most of my linergie even when it suggests doing so. This set is adorable though I definitely think it's worth the extra effort.
