Insight & Inspiration

Revival Retro has gained a fantastic reputation for it's figure flattering jackets that accommodate a larger bust whilst nipping in at the waist and flaring at the hip. The Richmond, Westminster and Finchley styles are all classic examples of feminine tailoring and the new Lambeth Jacket is no exception.

Always retrospective rather than fashion forward in our designs Rowena draws upon the female silhouettes of the 1940s and 1950s in creating high quality jackets with a touch of vintage inspiration.

Detailed Description

This 1950s vintage inspired jacket has a stylised oversized collar, nipped in waist and slightly flared peplum that overall gives rise to an appearance of that highly desired hourglass figure.

There is still plenty of room to move (this jacket is practical as well as pretty!): an active back across the shoulder blades and a considered design for the best fit means you get the best of both worlds.

Our clothing for bigger boobs policy means there is plenty of room in the bust and our sizing is currently up to size 18 which as big as we can manage in current circumstances. As a wearer of 32FF bras one of my constant disappointments is not being able to fit original vintage so I decided to do what I can to fix that for us bigger girls. 

Currently we make this jacket in UK sizes 6-18 but we are always working on expanding our size range and appreciate any and all feedback to

Revival also offers a choice of bottoms to pair your jacket with to make a women's suit. In fact there is a whole mix and match capsule wardrobe that you could shop here.

We use a good quality, medium weight, wool mix with a depth and texture that adds interest and allure. We chose a mix rather than pure wool because it gives the fabric the advantage of being machine washable. This might not be so important for the jackets but it definitely helps when you are wearing the matching skirts/trousers culottes on a regular basis.

The cloth is woven in Italy and this colour we describe as charcoal because it's not a solid black, there's a small herringbone pattern featuring different shades. The contrast lining is synthetic.

Composition: Outer 50% wool, 30% polyester, 20% cotton Lining 100% Polyester.

Hand wash or Gentle Cycle Machine Wash on cool temperature. Lay flat to reshape.
