Perfect Party Dress!

This is the second PUG dress I’ve ordered, and I love it! The first thing I noticed when it was delivered was how heavy the bag was. I had the feeling before I opened it that it would be good quality fabric based on the weight, and I was right. The fabric is all I hoped for and more – medium weight with a slight stretch, and shiny but not cheap looking. As with my other PUG dress (the Lauren) the quality and construction/workmanship are impressive – better than anything in the department stores for sure.

I tried it on (needed a little help with the last 3” of the zipper) and the fit was perfect. Very form fitting/snug, but not too tight or restrictive of movement. The gathers in the fully lined skirt provide plenty of swing. This dress does not require an under-layer for a nice line, but I think I’ll try it with a crinoline to add a little extra punch to the skirt. This is more for fun that out of necessity, it looks fantastic as it is. It was quite wrinkled when it came out of the bag, put most of the wrinkles came out on their own within a day of hanging it in my closet (bonus!).

This dress already has me planning a party – I feel so great in it and it wants to be seen. For reference I ordered a Large. I am 5’8” and weigh 145 pounds. I measure 39 bust, just under 32” waist, 39 hips and have a short torso and long legs. The proportions of the dress were right on and the hem hits just below my knees.

This is a long review, but as a new customer I have found the reviews with specific information on size and measurements to be really helpful, so I hope this helps you. I also highly recommend joining the Pinup Girls Clothing Customer Lounge on Facebook – lots of friendly people there discussing PUG styles, and many of them post pictures of themselves in the clothes, so there’s tons of good information on fit and sizing.

I received this dress a day after I placed my order, and I'm so happy I did! It is my first PUG dress and definitely not the last! I slipped it on and it fit like a glove! The material is stretchy and very comfortable! I love it, thank you PUG!

I am absolutely floored over the quality and cut of this dress. It is beautiful on the hanger, but an absolute show stopper on. The cut is very forgiving for those of us with lumps and bumps NOT in the right places. I HIGHLY recommend this dress to everyone!

This dress is just perfect for my husband's 50th birthday, with a 1940s theme! We are having a full swing band so the dress was a necessity! I was so excited when I found this dress online as it has the exact look I wanted. When it arrived, I was even more thrilled.
The dress is JUST as you see online! It is gorgeous (although I now need a push up bra to complete the look)! The material is so shiny and gorgeous...the fit is perfect, especially since the bodice has a little stretch.
You will be soooo happy with this purchase!

I bought this dress to wear to a wedding and I can't wait to wear it!!!! I tried the dress on for the bride to be and she cried.:)
It is just beautiful. The fabric has a nice sheen to it and just enough to stretch to make it comfortable for extended wear. The only thing that would make it better would be POCKETS!!!!

This dress has quite a lot of stretch to it, so if your measurements are on the borderline don't be scared! I got a 2xl instead of my usual 1x because I was scared of the armholes, but I didn't really need to size up. still fits, but i may need to alter it if i ever lose those 10 lbs ;D

The quality of this dress is really lovely, highly recommend.
