An absolutely stunning original 1950’s party/prom dress in a gorgeous shade of romantic coral pink chiffon! The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering – narrow draped bodice, designed to enhance the bust and accentuate a tiny waist – with a twirling full skirt. There are three layers to the skirt – a matching coral satin underlayer, a middle single layer of coral tulle, topped with a floating overlayer of chiffon. No maker’s label but this dress appears professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is likely a nylon blend.
Note the special details on this lovely dress – bust enhancing ruched (boned) bodice, sexy cap sleeves sitting just off the shoulders, and especially the wonderfully full skirt. The dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.
The dress closes down the rear with a hidden metal zipper. The entire dress is lined in matching coral satin acetate.
No vintage size label, so please see measurements below for proper fit. This is a small size which would best fit a modern size 2 or 4.
Bust – 33-34”
Waist – 25-26”
Hips – full
Length – 40.5”
Torso length (top of neckline to waist) – 12.5”
Skirt length (natural waist to hem) – 28”
This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No stains or holes on the chiffon and underarms are clean. It is still crisp and fresh with wonderful drape. No significant defects to note. Of course there are a few of the small snags and picks typical of chiffon skirts of this vintage.
