The Retro Swing Dress
Get down with that big band sound wearing our fabulous Retro Swing Dress inspired by the 40s & 50s.
This is a knock 'em out dress emphasising the waist and making the most of curves. The swing skirt style makes it perfect for all night jukbox jiving!
The fit on this dress creates a classic vintage 40s/50s silhouette. Pleated above and below bust emphasises ones assets and waist panel creates a further 'nipped in' look. The 3 quarter full skirt gives a full sweep and petal cap sleeves mean this dress does not restrict arms.
More stock coming soon!

This dress didn't suit my small bust size unfortunately, it sat very oddly on me and the fabric fell in such a way that it sort of collapsed in on itself and left me with a weird horizontal line across my breast bone. If you are curvier up top then this will be a 5 star dress for you, because everything else about the dress is great - I love the fabric, the sleeves, the fit on the waist, the length, the colour! I am returning mine, and will try out the Hostess dress instead.
This is my first purchase from Pretty Retro dresses. I have to admit that on hearing that it was the "little sister" to House of Foxy i was worried that the standard would not be quite as good. I needn't have worried though as the quality is excellent and exceeds my expectaions. The fabric of this dress is much micer and better quality than i imagined it would be. Now i just need you to make it in some other colours and fabrics please.
