Insight & Inspiration

A stunning 1940s dress inspired by the classic style of Lauren Bacall. Perfect for that special day, even a wedding day!?! We adore this forties inspired dress featuring fantastic embroidered detail. Perfect in ivory crepe.

Detailed Description

Sizzle like the screen sirens of old in the Lauren Bacall dress. This A line dress provides that iconic 1940s silhouette that is so instantly recognisable and fabulous. 

The faux wrap detail has a curved feminine shape that flatters and is accentuated with vibrantly coloured floral embroidery in red, pink, green and turquoise. The ivory is a very warm tone and would pair particularly well with gold shoes and jewellery.

The half peplum helps cover the tummy area, and hides problem area (particularly good if wearing to an occasion where you will likely be photographed a lot).

This 1940s dress features a deep V neck and this helps the dress to suit different bust sizes. Trying to accommodate as many shapes as possible does mean that once purchased you may choose to stitch the bottom of the V to permanently fix the appropriate amount of cleavage coverage you desire.

Size & Fit Expertise

The inverse pear/upside down triangle and athletic body shapes will do particularly well in this as the drape of the fabric maintains the structure of the dress and will help balance out the silhouette.

No stretch in this fabric so pear shapes will need to order their hips size and have the top half tailored for the optimum fit.
