Vintage 1950s Halter Dress w Shelf Bust Pink Gauze Chiffon Size XS


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage 1950s halter dress made of pink gauze chiffon over pink acetate.  This 1950s halter dress has a with a full cut skirt and shelf bust that is covered in rhinestone studded white lace.  I’ve posed this 1950s halter dress dress with a crinoline underneath it - no crinoline is supplied with the dress and although it is usable without a crinoline, it requires a crinoline to get a full skirt look. The bust has a built-in support with stays and the dress does up the side with a metal zipper. 

Label: no label 

Fabric:  Gauze Chiffon, most likely rayon with an acetate lining

Sizing: No size is indicated on this 1950s halter dress, but it should fit an extra small size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, noting the bodice length as I believe that this is meant for a shorter person:

Bust: 30”-32” around

Bodice:  10” from the top of the bust to the waist at the front / 17” from the top edge of the halter strap to the waist

Waist: 24”-25” around

Hips:  Full - 46”, meant to fall loosely

Overall length: 48“, measured flat from halter to hemline (skirt will extend out with a crinoline)

Condition: This 1950s halter dress is in very good condition with no pronouncedwear, tear or staining but the acetate base layer is hanging lower than the chiffon.  If this bothered you, you could hem the acetate lining. The dress definitely looks like it saw use, but is still very wearable.

This is a wonderful 1950s halter dress.....attractive style and colour, cute if it fits!
