Vintage 1970s Disco Dress Black Polyester w Sequin Bodice Richard Shops UK Size 10
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful disco era dress made of black polyester with sequinned tube top type stretch bodice in colours of silver, grey, black and red. The dress is made, as mentioned, with a tube top type bodice and a long wrap skirt that falls in drapes, with a flounce at its left side. It is unlined with no closures as it simply fits over the head.
Label: Richard Shops. Richard Shops was a popular British retailer of women’s fashion, ubiquitous during the 1960s until the 1990s, with a particular marketing focus on young women
Sizing: UK size 10 is indicated, which should be equivalent to a US 8, and although the dress should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping in mind that the fabric has some stretch and the dress should be form fitting:
Bust: 22” around, unstretched, but stretches out to 34”
Waist: 24”, unstretched, stretches out to 30”
Hips: 36” +
Overall length: 49", measured flat, from the top of the bodice to the hemline
Condition: It is in very good condition with the exception of a light mark to the skirt in the middle front (see last two close-up photos). It is not noticeable as the skirt falls in drapes and I have not been able to remove it, but I’ve been limited in my effort as the dress is supposed to be dry cleaned.
Despite the mark, this is a perfect disco era dress! It should be perfect if it fits right....great for a disco party!
