5'4", 180lbs, 38DD. I ordered the 2XL.

I have coveted this dress in various fabrics for a while now. The blue and black was the favourite. I finally ordered it and waited for it to arrive.

The dress is amazing. The cut is stunning. Powerful even. Construction, as always is top notch.The length was perfect for me as I like skirts that cover my knees and a little flirty. Too many years as a tomboy were not kind to them. The skirt moved well and hugged everything properly. The blue is a clear blue and perfect. Yes the top is a bit large and a little too low cut but I could have made it work.

The arms were deal breaker for me. Far too tight for my pipes. I am a muscly curvy girl and my arms barely fit into the sleeves. Sadly this made the shoulders and bodice look less than it actually is. Exchanging for another size would either make the skirt far too small, or the bodice far too large. I am not happy to have returned it but I know there are other women out there who will look fantastic in this dress.

Also, I would like to give a Thank You! to the customer service team. Prompt reply and kind words for my melancholic return request. You folks rock! (Posted on 7/15/2015)

I love the dress, but I normally buy 12-14 US size clothing, and with my measurements I decided to go with a size 2. It is too big, so I washed it to shrink it a little. I think an XL would had been perfect... Could you add to your size guide a comparison to US sizing like 10-12-14-16? (Posted on 6/17/2015)

I got this dress in a large, and it fits LIKE A GLOVE. I wasn't sure I was going to keep it, as mobility is severely limited, but then I saw myself in the mirror and couldn't bear to part with it. It squeezes everything just right and makes me look amazing. (Posted on 4/24/2015)

I got a small, which usually fits great with Pinup clothing, but this was a bit to snug. I do believe a medium would have been to big. I am small, but athletic. The arms were very snug, but waist etc were perfect. Love the dress and get tons of compliments!

I ordered this for a play and costumer service was great to me!! (Posted on 3/30/2015)

Got this on a sale weekend, and I'm SOOO glad I got it! Wore it on a date last night and was inundated with compliments, the way I am every time I wear a PUG item. Men, women, strangers and friends - all sorts said I looked incredible. My date was a good sport when 4 [fairly drunk, good-natured] Scotsmen ignored him (AND my making it clear I was with somebody!) and hit on me en masse, bigtime. I was apparently irresistibly smokin' in this dress!

Note: I'm 15 lbs over my normal weight right now (aargh!) and was a bit apprehensive about keeping/wearing something that was tight on my rear. It didn't matter! My L fit beautifully, and I think it will look even better when I'm back to fighting weight.
Current measurements: 37-29-43, 5'8 1/2" tall.

I fell in love with this dress the first time I saw it! I went back and forth but had to come back and buy! I'm 5' and about 112bs, I went with a small vs xsmall thinking I should give a little extra room because it's a tight dress. It fits wonderfully from the bottom of my bust, great in my hips, my butt, etc. The top is a little on the larger side however, so be mindful of that. I do love the fit and feel aside from the top being a little large though! My first PUG purchase, but I'll definitely be back! :) (Posted on 3/8/2015)

I love this dress!!! It fits perfect just as I hoped it would. Very nice material, made well and lined. It is low cut and for work I wore a cami underneath. I added a picture of myself on Pinups facebook page last week in this dress. I own two of them-- blue and purple. (Posted on 3/6/2015)

I really wanted to keep this dress because it's beautiful and such high quality. But I cannot for the life of me figure out why the sleeves are so darn narrow! I ordered an XL and the bust fit just fine, as did the bottom half. (My measurements are 46-34-47 and I wear a 36G bra in UK sizing or 36 I in US sizing) The sleeves are just too tight at the cuffs and it felt like my circulation in my arms was being cut off. I might have expected that to happen at the top of the sleeve but I've never had it happen on the lower half. I guess my lower arms are bigger than average. I'd try a 2X but I'm afraid that the fit won't work, since I'm only 5'3" and often the 2X is too large in the shoulders and/or too long. (Posted on 3/2/2015)
Gorgeous Dress But...Review by Ariana

This is such a gorgeous dress, it took my breath away on the website and when I showed my guy friend the picture, he said "That dress is you! That dress has your name all over it, it's so SEXY" I ordered it and I tried it on last night. Here in comes the problem.

It was HARD work to put this dress on. The sleeves are very tight/constricting on my arms (they are not small) and it made it very difficult to zip and clip the dress after I stepped into it. The enclosures on the collar are no good. They were already becoming loose while trying it on. I had to remove the dress, close the enclosures, put it on over my head and was able to put it on and zip it up, but the sleeves were just too tight and uncomfortable.

The skirt part was a bit longer than I liked but it hugged my curves BEAUTIFULLY and my waist looked super tiny. If only the top was constructed differently. I am a bit on the fence whether I will keep it, or try to exchange it for a similar cut with short sleeves. (Posted on 2/25/2015)

I'm 5'4 32DD with little wider hips in an hourglass figure. I bought a M absolutely love this dress. My only issue is that the chest area wasn't as tight as I'd've liked it. I'm told I. Have a bigger chest for someone my size so, I was kind of surprised that it didn't fit just right. I'm sure I can make it work though. :) the size chart is definitely true to it's word. Haha.

I am 5'7, 140#, 37-26-38/39. I ordered a small. It's snug, which is fine (very curvy!) in the bottom, but the sleeves are really tight across my biceps and deltoids, and the back is very taut across my upper back (my trapezius). I'm gonna try a medium. I wish, for this price, that the return policy gave a little more time to try on multiple sizes, alas. I'm going to return the small and try the medium. (Posted on 2/17/2015)

This dress is perfect!! Very well made, and nice material too!! . Its low cut-- but I wore it to work and just put a cami underneath. I usually wear a size 10 in dresses-- but I ordered a 12 in this-- it fits me perfect and is very comfortable. I am not large in the bust area-- so its a little large up there-- but it looks so good. I just need a padded bra. The arms are not too tight for me as some have said. I will be buying more from this company- I am a 58 year old who is in good shape-- I am a runner and mtn biker and just a busy busy person-- but i love to dress up-- my waist is my what I would like to change ( don't we all) -- that is the main reason I went up in size. This is such a great dress-- no panty lines or any lines-- - I own 2 antique gift shops and like to dress for work -- I love to wow people and this dress does it-- I love this style!!! just can't say enough about this dress.

I bought this dress because I love the blue color, and I wasn't disappointed. The dress is even prettier in person, and I fits pretty well; my one complaint would be that the arm holes area little constricting and get tight as the day goes on, but nothing too bad. Were I to do it over again, I would probably size this one up a size, as the arm hole problem probably wouldn't be there had I bought it in 2X instead of XL. Overall, I am very pleased with this dress, and I wear it all the time, even to work (I just put a coordinating tank top underneath when I wear it to work, to preserve my modesty as this one's really low-cut). Definitely recommend! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

This dress was my first ever internet clothing buy, which kicked off a rather expensive (but totally worth-it) addiction. I'm 36/26/39, and I bought a small. I'd suggest that there's a little extra room in the chest, and, if you push it, in the hips - the bengaline is incredibly forgiving, and it doesn't look strained or wrinkled, even though I'm a bit over the measurements. The dress is wonderfully comfortable, and the shape of the cotton sateen top somehow gives an almost corset-like look that seems to narrow the waist. I don't have any problems with arm mobility - the only real issue is the hook-and-eyes on the collar, which came loose fairly quickly, and are impossible to do up without a hand. I can understand why the top doesn't have the same construction as something like the Lorelei, though, as it'd probably be too hard to get into if the collar fabric was joined at the top. The colour is gorgeous, the bodice is structured and beautiful, I adore the cuffs and collar (oh, the collar...), and I don't personally find the neckline indecently low (though I'm pretty tall and flat-chested, so nothing shows). I love this dress so much that I wear it around the house all the time, just because I can. :) It's impossible to find anything this nice in Australia, especially for such a good price. If anyone's sitting on the fence, I'd definitely suggest to buy it. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

Sorry to see some of you have had a hard time with this one, it really is great. Nice fabric, perfect fit, and sexy as hell. Not appropriate for the office, it's really low cut.

I also have the one in green as well. It's a staple for your closet.

I'm a 34D, 26-27, 35 and ordered a small, fits perfect. Hope this helps anyone who wants to buy this one. (Posted on 6/24/2014)

Bought this stunner in green and grey to attend a baby shower and, all I have to say that I felt like a classy sexy kitten. This dress is so well constructed that it wont move too high when walking showing your calves and curves with elegance. So far, I own three dresses and will continue to buy them, nobody can get them at the mall. That is the reason I love Pinup Couture, you are wearing unique pieces with the security that you won't see it in many other women.
Final note, I adore that my hourglass figure and full thighs are shown in gorgeous models who look like femmes. My favorite Clothing line Ever!!

I'm straddling those in-between sizes (41-32-43)/(38D) so I took a chance on a size smaller and got the Blue and Black in L and my goodness it fits better than I dreamed. If I have a quibble, it's that the upper arms are tight and bending the elbow feels like breaking in new leather shoes, but bending and flexing gives a little mobility over time, even if I do need someone to finish zipping me up and hooking the neck.

It's comfortable and hugs the curves but isn't constricting. I *will* be investing in Spanx, purely for vanity reasons.

Yes - there is cleavage but in this dress it feels like classy décolletage, instead of just your boobs hanging out.

I'm very happy with my purchase. (Posted on 5/3/2014)
