        Don't forget the petticoat!

        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.

        The dress is perfect in every way! I got the xs size and fit exactly as it should. The dress hits me about half way down the calf with the petticoat. The material is very soft and smooth and the dress is very well made.

        I'm going to have to take it to a seamstress. I bought a lovely red tea-length petticoat to go under this darling little number, but the dress is about a foot too long. I'm 5'5" and it hits me just above the ankles, not below the knee as the photos would have you believe. Aside from being vertically challenged this dress fits wonderfully. A petticoat is a must! The material feels wonderful. I can't wait until it's ready for a night on the town.

        As another reviewer wrote, it does not sit off the shoulder as shown in the photo but rather directly on it. This was fine with me as at least I can wear a normal bra with it. The bust was the right size, but there were side darts that needed to be brought in with alterations - since the dress is not lined it was a quick and cheap fix. The rest of the dress fits wonderfully and I look forward to spinning around the dance floor at my event! I got it with the crinoline and it adds the best sounding rustle and just a little bit of oomph, but the dress itself has its own body so you can do without if need be.

        I ordered this dress for a special occasion business dinner with my husband's company...I needed it FAST, and I needed it to FIT! Not only did they get it to me before I needed it...but it fits like a glove! It is true to size. I feel like I just walked off a movie set from the '50s. I was concerned that the bodice would be too roomy, as my "girls" are a bit on the skinny side, but the sizing is perfect. The petticoat is a MUST. This dress is perfect for any event.

        Love love love this dress! You have to wear it with the crinoline petty coat! Otherwise the dress looks to flat and the gathers make you look "thick" around the waist. I got so many compliments when I wore this dress to a wedding that I officiated.
