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 black 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.

I am 5'5, 41/34/43 and 36DDD. I purchased an XL and it was the most sumptuous dress I've ever put on. It hugs your curves and is SO soft. The train took a bit to get used to, but I found I just hoisted it up with one hand at my hip when I walked anywhere, as I didn't want to damage the fabric. The cleavage in this gown is super impressive, too. I love the internal shaper.

The only gripe I might have about it is that the direction of the velvet seems strange to me. If you pet the dress upwards(and you'll want to pet it, it feels so divine), it's fine- but if you pet it downwards, the velvet is the wrong way. It might just be me- it seems intuitive to want to pet downwards and feel the smooth velvet. But it is a very minor thing compared to how amazing this gown is!

Overall, pretty dress. However, the lining only goes 3/4 the way down the inside of the dress and rides up inside the gown creating wrinkles. Also, around the bustline, the lining is rolling over and is visible. I will have to have a seamstress tack the lining to the inside of the dress as well as around the bustline. I am 5'4", and tiny, except for my bust. The photo doesn't show you that there is a seam directly below the upper portion of the skirting where the top meets the skirt. For gals, like me with big busts, when you pull this down to ride below your bustline, there isn't enough fabric on the top to cover you. Making this gown go from classy to trashy. Also, the bows on the top of the strapping are not as full. The zipper in the back bunches up around the waistline. I truly think this gown is made for someone who is bone thin with a small bust. Hopefully, some tailoring will help me with this dress. Keep away curvy gals.

I purchased this gown for a formal wedding. I am only 5'5" but with 4 inch heels this just barely pools on the floor and looks really cool, so I'll suck it up and carry the skirt up a little when I'm walking. I was going to hem it but my husband said that he loves the look and since we're not big dancers, it will be perfect for standing around and looking great in. I also didn't want to ruin the gorgeous train effect this has in the back.
Even though this dress is stretchy I found it true to size.
I only have one note, this dress may need some sort of dress tape to keep the lining from turning out in the extreme plunge. It may just be my body type, but if I look at other photos of the Gilda, I can see lining on the the blue one sneaking up on the back. It's not very noticeable on my black gown but it's something that would be good to keep on hand with this dress.

I'm going to be a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding in October and I purchased this dress for the occasion! It's absolutely perfect! It definitely has the "va-va voom" factor and I feel like a total bombshell in it! It hugs the curves just perfectly and the built in shapewear is incredible.
I first purchased this in a Medium but it was too tight on my caboose. I exchanged it for a Large and it was a perfect fit. The quality of the dress is amazing. This is my first PUG purchase, but certainly not my last!

I have the Gilda in every color, and so should you! My boyfriend loves pointing out all the heads I turn all night long whenever I wear the Gilda. It generally fits true to size, but there is some room for stretch in the bust; my measurements are 38"-25.5"-36", and the Small fits me like a glove. <3

This is a beautiful and very flattering gown! My most favorite ball gown so far.
Only reason I detracted one star, is because the zipper is very difficult to open and close, while dress fits fine, and because there was an error in the stitching in the cleavage area (no big deal, my tailor will fix that, but still).
As far as sizing: I am 5'3'', around 125lbs, usually a size 6, and needed a Medium size. (Ordered the wrong size first, but that was because I had not paid attention to the sizing chart, which is spot on).
I love, love, love this dress, and will be ordering it in a different color as well.

I have been waiting ages for the black gilda gown to come back in stock and it was worth the wait! The first thing I said when I put it on was 'hot damn!' It is the holy grail of floor length dresses! I ordered a large as i am a 32g and curvy size 8/10 (UK 12/14) and I found there was no need to wear a bra OR spankx!! Completely unheard of in a dress that fits my specifications. Amazing for the price and super fast international delivery... THANK YOU PUG!!
