M Missoni Bandage Dress Size 40 Made in Italy


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful bandage dress made in Italy by Missoni.  The dress is a form hugging piece, made with spandex, some metallic fibre and a base fabric, probably viscose or polyester, hard to know as there is no content label.  The dress is made with a sequence of horizontal rows in tones of ochre, mint green, silver, black, white and a bit of light blue.  There is a gold metallic fleck throughout the silver and black rows.  The green rows have a vertical grosgrain texture while the ochre rows have a zig-zag pattern woven into them.


Label: M Missoni Made in Italy.  The M Missoni line was introduced in 1998 as a more economical line to the very expensive Missoni line.  I’m unsure of the age of this dress, but it is an older model, probably close to being vintage.  

Sizing: Size 40 is indicated on a label, which I assume is an Italian size, equivalent to a US size 6.  Please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account:

Bust: 24” around unstretched and 35” fully stretched

Waist:  22” around unstretched and 34” fully stretched

Hips:  28” around unstretched and 38” fully stretched

Length:  24 3/4”, measured flat

Condition:  This dress is pre-owned, but in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining or odor.  It appears to have seen very little use and was well stored over the years.  

This is a very sexy dress - great piece to show off your curves!
