This glamorous black beaded and sequined fine net evening dress is truly sexy. Lined with a deep burgundy stretch jersey 'under dress' for sublime comfort, it is ideal for the Tango (or any other dance for that matter). The beaded netting is stunning.
With a plunging décolletage and 1/2" straps (wide enough to conceal bra straps and support the weight of the beads and sequins) it is a full length stunner.
It is a great size for a gal with curves, especially in the bust area, not often found in dresses from this era, in this style or condition.
Measurements are laid flat (so double them up) Waist 19", Bust (arm-pit to arm-pit) 20", Under bust 19" and Hips (un-stretched) 23".
The dress is 58" long and does not hug the hips or waist tightly, but falls gently away from under the bust into a wide circle at the bottom measuring 140".
It is a good US 12 -14, Aust 16 - 18, UK 14-16, Eu 44. With some easy alteration it could easily be made smaller. I am an Australian size 16 of average height and it fits me well and comes to my ankles. I bought it for a special theatrical production and it was worn only 3 times and is in super Vintage condition with no loss of sequins or beads and no damage to the net.
It would look stunning teamed with the Marilyn Monroe style Pastel Mink Stole (complete with Mink tails) listed NN773.
The gown has not been dry cleaned.
