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!
