1980s Liza Bruce Printed Spandex Stretch Fitted Body Con Dress

Liza Bruce started designing high end swimwear in 1982 and she was known for her use of Lycra which made her suits cling to the body. She soon added dresses into the mix and it is one of hers that Kate Moss famously wore in 1993 that was virtually see-through. She used as little seaming as possible in her suits and dresses and like her swimwear, the clothing she designed was meant to emphasize a girls curves. This dress is perfectly representative of that and is made from that stretch nylon and spandex fabric that will fit like a second skin. The print combines color and pattern beautifully. The neckline is scooped and the back scooped even deeper. This is a fabulous piece of eighties fashion in mint condition and that still feels modern now. Excellent condition 

Unlined and slips on to wear. Tagged a S and the fabric has stretch so should fit an XS-MED. Measurements show the comfortable stretch lying flat but it should stretch even a bit more if needed once on an actual body. Note the base color is more a purple tone then the blue it photoed as.
