Insight & Inspiration

Wow! This dress means business! (And is deserving of the name Obsession) We think it ticks all the boxes - it's well fitted, comfortable, flattering and utterly fabulous!

Detailed Description

This vintage inspired 1940s dress by Stop Staring Clothing is a classic, chic, and powerful combination of well structured tailoring and considered design.

The upper torso features details to perfectly flatter your shape. An elongated sweetheart neckline helps balance proportion (and suggest height if you are petite), and if you have an ample bosom this will create quite an impressive cleavage. If you prefer to downplay your blessings, a simple stitch where the folds meet will easily avoid any display. (We think you should just go for it though. Who needs eye contact?!)

The tailored midsection of the Obsession suggests a small waist, and the graceful peplum is a great figure fixer. This feature will hide a tummy with ease, and reduces the need for tactical underwear selection when wearing. It creates a balanced lower half of the dress, and makes the pencil skirt look slim. Finishing below the knee for a look that lengthens the legs, it's a classic pencil with a slit at the rear for ease of walking.

The dress is made of an excellent quality stretch material, offering comfort and support. It is far more comfortable to wear than you could imagine - and we invite you to stop obsessing (!) and come in and try it to see for yourself.

For those of you going to the Goodwood or Twinwood this dress is a great choice- it's of era but sexy, and the gorgeous aubergine colour will really stand out.

The Obsession looks fabulous on all figures - and we particularly think inverted pear shapes and apple shaped figures will be thrilled to see themselves in this. The peplum is a really clever piece of tailoring, and it will help create curves and balance out body proportions.

A deep sweetheart neck dress with gathers at sleeve seam connecting bust and cap sleeves. Fitted waist with faux belt. Peplum covers the stomach area and drapes across the hip. Pencil skirt. All in one dress with zip up back.
