1980s Victor Costa Fitted Lace Dress w Dotted Tulle Overskirt

This is a seriously sexy, dramatic strapless dress that was made to hug and create curves whether a girl has then or not. It is all fitted and shaped to give you that Barbie Doll body with the bust and hips exaggerated in just the right way. The actual dress is a strapless little number that is cut above the knee and has a black cotton lace set over a nude base. Between the lace and the inner nude fabric is a layer of the same dotted tulle that makes up that dramatic skirting. This gives the lace an very interesting texture and depth. The sweetheart neckline tops the fitted silhouette of the dress. Circling the hip is a curving overlay of dotted tulle over two other tulle layers. These curve around and down and give the dress the suggestion of a full fifties skirt. Totally '80s and fabulous. Excellent condition

The dress is fully lined in a nude silky rayon and closes with a back metal and nylon zipper.
