The Laura Byrnes Gilda Gown in Ivory 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 ivory 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 an in 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've had my eye on this gown for some time and finally decided to treat myself. The dress is well worth the wait! I absolutely love it & cannot wait to wear it at the 'Bajan Independence Ball' (Posted on 10/22/2015)

I bought this to get married in but was very disappointed in the dress and am returning. The material is the main problem, it is thin and the elasticated bodice below shows through in several places- the colour of the fabric also has a rather yellowish tinge which adds to this dress looking cheap rather than vintage. Also the velvet seemed to be running in the wrong direction. I have four other wonderful PUG dresses, I shall take solace in those. (Posted on 10/19/2015)

I bought this dress for my wedding, I got it and I wish I would of paid attention to the other reviews, the bodice and the slip is sooooo noticeable and it's just so disappointing!!!!! I have tons of dresses that I have purchased from pin up clothing and I love them all . This one is going back such a sad day I was so excited to see that she made it in ivory, I'll try for the red I guess I'll be walking down the aisle in red (Posted on 10/14/2015)
Beautiful Dress but didn't live up to photoReview by Melissa

I ordered this dress as second dress for my wedding. I was really excited because it looks so beautiful on the website. I forgot to read the reviews and saw that my experience was the same as most other reviewers. The shaper and lining had prominent break you can see through the velvet. Which draws your eyes to the difference in lining from top and bottom. The seams of the shaper and dress bulged and created unsightly profile. The silhouette and fabric are beautiful and very flattering but the structure did not meet my expectations. I am returning this dress. (Posted on 9/30/2015)

I LOVED this dress!! I wore it to my prom and it was such a success!! The fit was perfect, it felt fantastic. I only had two small complaints. The first I knew before I bought the dress but just a warning, it is very long. I'm 5'4" and by the end of the night, the train was a wreck (hehe ;) pun intended). The second complaint was that there's a line where you can see the slip bit end. It's a bit annoying and it's the only real problem I have with the dress. Other than that, I was so happy with it and would totally buy it again! (Posted on 9/28/2015)

I have to agree with other reviews....beautiful dress but with the light color you can see straight through the dress. You can see the top bodice portion and where it stops, sending it back. I'm sure the other colors are perfect with the way the dress is made but the ivory color is a complete flop. (Posted on 8/10/2015)

This dress is AMAZING. The built in shaper hides my flaws but is still comfy. The color is delicious and the velvet feels amazing. When I seen myself for the first time in this dress I almost cried. I plan on wearing it this month when I get married. I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much PUG! (Posted on 7/6/2015)
More velour than velvet...Review by Shellie

I'm a huge PUG fan, and love every single dress I have bought! I always get excited when purchasing a new dress from them. I'm attending a Summer Ball, and needed a Ball Gown, so when I saw this one I new it would be perfect. When I finally tried it on I was so disappointed! The outer of the dress was see-through so you could see the lining through the dress. What made it worse was that the seams of the lining didn't match those of the outer. Very shabbily sewn together. I'm 5ft7", 38-30-38 so bought a medium. The fabric bunched slightly around my waste, and the dress was far too long even when wearing heels. The dress felt extremely cheap, and there was a massive white seam running around the middle of the dress which was incredibly unsightly! I'm so disappointed as I live in the UK, so not only paid for shipping, I paid tax for it coming into the country and return postage. And additional £70 for a dress I'm not even keeping. Not sure I will be buying from PUG anymore as I doubt I can afford £70 each time I need to send something back ): I would not recommend this dress at all!

I was going to use this as my wedding dress because the silhouette is EVERYTHING however I had to send it back due to a weird construction issue. Because of the color of the fabric, the thick bottom seam of the bodice shaper creates an incredibly visible and distracting line allllll the way around the booty/hips of the dress. It's pretty visible in artificial light and looks crazy in natural light. I don't think this would be an issue in a darker fabric so I think it was a bad oversight to not alter the dress construction to accommodate the lighter fabric that shows bumps. That said I might get the black version because meow, such a great shape. For reference I am 39 bust 27 waist 39 hips and ordered a Medium. I also agree that the fabric itself has a bit of a cheap feeling, but for the price I don't think I would have cared if it looked amazing. But, alas, it did not, and back it went.
