You know how sometimes you come across an item of clothing that you want SO MUCH but you just don’t know where you would wear it? This is how I felt about the Downtown Dame Dress from Deadly Dames.
This dress is just incredible! A beautiful black wiggle with gold straps and bust detail, musical notes and sash belt. I decided I just HAD to have it, and I will have to create a party around it.
I got the dress in a 2XL, despite my hip and bust measurements slightly exceeding the size chart (I am around 48-34-51 right now).
It fits me like a second skin, and as my lack of shapewear showed, it was rather unforgiving on my stomach! But I just ADORE it! The adjustable straps are perfect (although I might need a different bra colour!), the lack of seam under the bust is a busty girls best friend, and that sash is a wonderful adornment.
The dress has the smallest amount of stretch in it, but you should really go with what the size chart says about the fit. It is a tiny bit big on my waist as I would expect, but it’s not visible. I get a lot of ladies asking me what the Pinup Girl Clothing sizes translate to in UK sizes, as they use the lettering system. I really would urge you to check the size chart and follow what that says as it’s never let me down.
Have you ever indulged in a fantasy item?
