Thanks Naazer sir this is interesting. Quite surprised to see them check it out on live people at point blank range... but it would sure convince me to buy if I was a customer!

Nonesense.

Designer wear could only be of soft body armour, which clould provide maximum protection level of NIJ Level III only. the dress could weight somewhere from 6~9 kg depending on the body area coverd. You can wear them in exteme cold temperature but wearing them in tropical/ humid/ warm climates like ours is not a pleasent thing.

The model is wearing an armour plate underneath the soft body armour garment. Armour plates are solid, tough silica or composite plastic / carbon fiber plates weighing 2~ 4 kg, depending on the size and thickness. Armour plates or ballistic shields can provide protection levels of IIIA and higher.

Putting it in simple words she is wearing an aromur shield to provide protection against 7.62X51 rifle cartridge yielding speeds higher than 3200FPS and the weapon being used to test is probably a 38 bore 3 inch revolver yielding 800~1000 FPS only.

Bullet proof vests / dresses are not magical, the dress may stop the bullet from penetrating the body but the trauma caused by the bullet hitting the body (Like a hammer hitting the chest/ head etc.) may be enough to kill the person. Even if the person is lucky he still may have some bones broken and sever bruising from the hit.
