The Laura Byrnes Gilda Gown in Burgundy Velvet

Availability: In stock

$190.00
Beguilingly beautiful and evocative of vintage high glamour and film noir sirens, the Gilda Gown from Laura Byrnes will drape your body in allure and hug your curves the way they deserve. Made with a sumptuously soft and plush stretch burgundy velvet, this full-length gown features a curved, plunging v-neckline accented by flat, sewn bows on either shoulder, while the underbust-to-hem seaming is strategically placed to ensure a sinuous line throughout. Darting in the bust and a short fishtail train at the back elevate this look from elegant to extraordinary. Fully-lined with a lightweight knit fabric and constructed with a hidden internal bengaline shaper in the bust and waist to hold and shape your figure, the Gilda Gown is finished off with a back zip to provide a sleek and clean silhouette.

This floor-length gown is designed to accommodate women 5'9" and over. If you are less than 5'9", you may need to have this gown tailored.

My daughter selected this gown for prom. She is 5'4" with an hour glass figure so this it is a little long on her. Her measurements all fell in the size Large but some were closer to the top end of the size and others at the low end. Nonetheless the gown fit her beautifully! The fabric has some give so she could have tried a medium but with the large she has no wrinkles or bunching or bulges so I still feel that this was best size as such I would say that the gown fits true to size. If you're considering buying this gown just do it! It is simply stunning. (Posted on 5/27/2016)

Lovely dress but you need curvesReview by Nicola

I just received my Laura Byrnes Gilda gown today (woohoo!) and the material and colour is absolutely gorgeous. I'm tall and slim - 5'11 measurements 36, 29, 40 so I'm pretty straight up and down with a slight waist. Most garments usually look fab on my figure and this dress does look good too BUT its basically like a body con tube dress and just made me look very slim rather than curvy and luscious like the girls in the product photos. I think the dress would look way better on a curvier figure.

Also the straps weren't quite long enough and so the bust line doesn't come down quite low enough for my height and I'll need to get the straps lengthened to make it fit 100%. The neckline didn't look like the photos either. It was a different shape; more of a sweetheart neckline than a deep V which was disappointing. I think if you were a bustier girl this dress would again be better suited to you. I'm a C cup so I have a decent bust but the dress still didn't really look that sensational in that area. It looks more 'sophisticated and Katherine Hepburn' than Jessica Rabbit on my figure.

As for the length of the dress, its definitely long enough at the front but the extra length at the back isn't so my heels kept standing on the fabric. I think if you're 5'9-10 you'd be the right height for the dress.

Australian girls - I got a medium. US sizes tend to be larger so despite the other comments about it fitting small, just go with your exact size and you'll be right. If I had gone for the large it would have hung on me like a bag. The material is really stretchy but the zip is a biatch to get over the seam at the back. It also completely eliminated any 'thuttock' issues too :)

Overall - lovely dress, definitely keeping and wearing it and buying more stuff from PUG but it makes me feel more sophisticated and elegant than sexy and it didn't have the WOW factor for me. (Posted on 1/27/2016)

I absolutely love this dress. It's one of my favorite harp gig dresses. It's super comfortable, great quality, and overall a fabulous dress! There's only one problem: the zipper. This dress fit me almost perfectly, but I could not get the zipper up, even with the help of my mother and uncle. We took it to a seamstress who recommended we use baby oil on the zipper. That worked, however the zipper is still very hard to zip up. But otherwise the dress is fantastic and absolutely worth it! (Posted on 1/10/2016)
HOLY COW IT FITSReview by G

Confession: I'm very curvy, totally born in the wrong century, lush. I just ran around the house yelling "HOLY COW IT FITS" after trying the dress on. My god I'm going to feel so confident at the company Christmas party. This definitely fits like the Monica dress, so I'm really glad I ordered a size up. And at 5'10 barefooted, I can see how a shorter person will either need much taller shoes or a good tailor. So. Very. Happy. (Posted on 11/24/2015)

So I did walk my daughter down the aisle in this dress. I got so many compliments! It was comfortable to wear for an extended period of time & never lost it's shape or amazing appearance. Best of all I was able to take part in this wedding wearing a gown that made me feel like a sexy mother-of-the-bride. Thanks PUG! I can't tell you what it means to me to have such great memories & pictures to show for it. (Posted on 10/30/2015)

This is a MUST HAVE! It is perfection. The cut is so forgiving. The cheeky mermaid tail. There is almost built in shapewear in this dress which supports. I never knew I could look this good until I put on Gilda. I'm an ex opera singer and my gosh! If I had known about this dress then I would have the other colours too. Get your long gloves out and channel Rita H. Just stunning. (Posted on 8/20/2015)

This dress is beautiful! The velvet is nice quality, the cut is amazing, it showcases my curves very well. I ordered a 2x & will have it taken in at the waist. I'm walking my daughter down the aisle in this beauty. Thank you PUG! Another item I will keep & wear often. We'll worth the money. (Posted on 6/12/2015)

This dress is so beautiful in person. The color is even better than I had expected. I especially love the extra draping at the back hem. It's soft, comfortable and elegant. (Posted on 6/4/2015)
