A true bombshell pinup dress that hugs the figure and has an added surprise with a full back drape that has loads of movement when worn. The dress is in pretty good condition for its age with the following very minor issues: spaghetti straps have small amount of fraying (hanger stress I would think) and zipper base has unravelled a little - both easy fixes that won't affect the appearance or wearability once fixed. The only other issue is that I noticed a couple of tiny holes in back panel near hem....can be left as is as they are not noticeable when worn or patched to prevent widening. All in all, a beautiful, wearable and eye-catching dress. The dress has been discounted to reflect these small issues.
