1970s Front Gathered Pink Coral Nylon Lingerie Dress

This would have been originally intended to be worn as lingerie piece. However, the recent trend towards wearing items more sheer and layered over inner foundation garments makes piece like this far more suitable as outwear now. This one walks the edge, as far as how sheer it is. It def has a touch of sheerness in a strong light but you could use it as a cover up, be daring and wear nothing but a slip under it, or layer it over just about anything underneath to the point where you can walk outside. The nylon is of a good quality and weight. The fabric is a pinky coral color that is a touch brighter in hue then how it photoed color-wise. It is better in person in my opinion. It slips over the head with pretty pouf sleeves that give a nod to the thirties in feel. The bust and back dip very, very low and the front is gathered .with a tie and it is with this tie that you can adjust it to keep it from literally sitting below the bust line. The edges are all finished with a softly gathered edging of lace in a matching color.  Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on. Tagged M. The fabric does have some stretch. I think this is a John Kloss piece but it is not labelled. It came in the same lot as the other Kloss pieces I have
