1950s Pin Up Sequin Lilli Diamond Dress

Absolutely exquisite strapless bombshell pin up dress from Lilli Diamond! Its the perfect little black dress with just the right combination of glitz, sex and class. I have to confess I have actually worn this dress and gotten rave reviews! Made of that delicious silk taffeta that has that whispering rustle sound to it when ever you move, it instantly makes you feel old Hollywood glamorous. The skirt has a slight flare to it and is cut longer as was the fashion. The waist is created by vertical seaming so the line is not broken and you look impossibly tall and long. The bodice is a masterpiece with just over 2 inches of tightly sewn, glossy black sequins edging the peaked strapless bust line. Its lightly boned and shaped so if you fit it well you can probably skip the undergarments. The back is perfectly simple - just a fitted sheath of taffeta. Wonderful piece and in excellent condition.

Bust: 18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam, with a built in bust that will need at least a B to fill (or padding)
Waist: 14" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: 39" from top of peak of bodice to the bottom of the hem

The dress is unlined and closes with a back metal zipper. The bodice is lightly boned.
