Swing your way across the dance floor at your prom or other formal event with this 1950s Brenda swing dress from Unique Vintage. This ladylike black cotton dress features a classic 1950s-style swing shape with a slim, cinched waist, boat neckline and dramatically flared swing skirt with layers of lace peeking out from underneath. Its perfectly tailored construction creates an hourglass shape that will flatter any figure and turn you into a true vintage bombshell. Slight scalloped edges across the neck give the otherwise simple dress a bit of eye-catching detail, and it although the neckline is fairly modest in the front, it dips slightly into a V-shape in the back to show just a slight peek of skin. Because it’s made of 97% cotton, the Brenda scallop dress is comfortable enough to wear all year round.
Crinoline added for volume, sold separately.

This is my "little black dress." Hands down, this is probably my favorite item in my closet! I also have the red version of this dress, and I love them both!! I've worn the black dress to church picnics with UV's red chiffon crinoline, and I got SO many compliments from everyone. I also wore it for my family's Christmas photos, and to square dances. I bought the medium since it was the closest to my measurements, and it fits as if it were tailor-made for me! The skirt is spacious and great to twirl, and the material feels thick, but the dress doesn't feel heavy at all! LOVE this dress!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS DRESS!!!! I wore this dress to my Prom and I received soooo many compliments:) People kept telling me how classy and beautiful I looked. I had such a blast on the dance floor; so much fun to spin in! This dress is very comfortable and easy to move in. Very impressed! Thank you Unique Vintage for making my Prom truly special!

I got this to wear to my sister's wedding (she requested black). Fits absolutely perfectly, and with a petticoat the skirt is so much fun to twirl. I have worn it several times since. The one thing I would note is that the straps sit really wide on the shoulder, so you'll want to wear it with a strapless bra

Size: Medium I just recieved this dress and I'm overall very happy with it. The length and fit is very beautiful and flattering. However there were a few minor surprises: the description shows that it's an off-the-shoulder neckline, which in part is why I bought it, but it naturally sits at my shoulder, not off-the-shoulder. In fact, when I try to give it the off-the-shoulder look, it pushes the fabric at the bust down which is not flattering, nor does it stay in place. Anyhow, even worn at the shoulder it is still very beautiful. Another small surprise is the fabric is a lot lighter than expected. It is a light weight cotton sateen. I thought the fabric weight would be a little heavier than it really is, but this is not a complaint just something to note when buying. In fact it is a great weight if wearing it in warmer weather because it's light. What's really great about this dress is that because it's cotton, it can be worn casual with flats and casual accessories without the petticoat, or it can be dressed up with the petticoat, heels and jewelry and it will look very formal. It's very versatile. I purchased the knee length crinoline petticoat which gives the skirt a flattering full bodied look, especially pretty with the fitted top. Overall this is a great buy!

I really really like this dress. I have my bridesmaids wearing it for my wedding. Looks good on different body types. My only problems were that it was a little long so we had to hem them about five inches. The zippers are not high in quality so I had to get a new one placed. Some of the stitching was bad so I had to return it for another one. But over all it's a great dress if you mind getting a little work done.
