Pinup Couture Lorelei Dress in Black

Availability: In stock

$130.00
With its roots firmly planted in Old Hollywood glamour, the Lorelei is an incredibly flattering and sophisticated wiggle dress made in soft bengaline fabric that loves your curves and is unbelievably comfortable, too. With beautiful seaming, cuffed three-quarter sleeves, and a collar that can be worn up or down, this dress can be accessorized for business or leisure with ease. The bodice is lined completely in stretch charmeuse for superior comfort and fit, the matching belt will cinch in your waistline, and the look is finished off with smart back pleats. This is not your basic black dress!

I love this dress! I am so happy that I got it. I was able to use a coupon and was able to get it for a little less. It arrived at my house super fast. It is fitted without being uncomfortably tight, my only complaint is that due to the location of the zipper, it pretty much requires a second person present to zip it up. (Posted on 5/27/2016)

I bought this dress for work, but unfortunately it's a bit too provocative for that. However, I still completely adore it and it's become a staple in my wardrobe for dinners and cocktail functions. It makes me feel like Marilyn Munroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I always wanted the dress from the scene in the Parisian cafe. Now I have it. Fits in all the right places on my build (athletic hourglass with 32F-G bust). Genuinely the sexiest dress I have ever owned. Love it to pieces and would but more if they came in more colours.

THIS DRESS! THIS DRESS THIS DRESS!
I just received this beautiful black number and I have no problem admitting that I am already head over heels in love. When I put it on I can't help but channel Marilyn M in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. (Hint: Her character's name is Lorelei Lee) This pattern is a beautiful rendition (in black instead of the Navy blue) of the dress her character wore towards the end of the movie when she (SPOILER ALERT!) puts her lover's father in his place for calling her a gold digger.

The fit:

I am bordering on 5'11 with super long legs. My measurements are 38", 26", 38" and my bra size is a 32E/ 34DD.
I ordered a Medium and it fit me perfectly. It didn't feel uncomfortably snug around my rounder parts; It truly just set perfectly on my figure. It is so difficult to find a dress that can do that (especially around my bust and my butt) so you can imagine how elated I was by this fit.

The quality:

As with the other dresses I have purchased from PUG, the quality was immaculate. No loose stitching, a beautifully formed pattern, hidden support around the butt and thighs, and a beautiful textured fabric that mysteriously knows exactly when to give and when to tighten. (Seriously, is this dress alive?) It feels like a sultry second skin. I cannot wait to take it out of the closet for a test drive!

One last thing:

The online customer service team is on the ball! Keep up the good work!!! (Posted on 5/3/2016)

My order just arrived yesterday and I am already totally in love! I ordered a 2x (bust is 46 waist is 37) and it fits perfectly, would probably want it to be a tad tighter, but I knew the XL would be too small. I can't wait to wear this dress. Very high quality fabric so it flatters your curves while hugging them. I ordered the Lauren Dress (Black and white) and Lauren Shirt (Teal) and can't wait for them to arrive!! So glad I found this website! (Posted on 3/21/2015)

Slimming and sexy.
I would say it's a perfect shopping outfit and perfect for the office. Too bad I don't wear it to work.... Don't want to cause so many heart aches in that environment (Posted on 2/20/2015)

Love the style , high quality, and construction of this dress!!! Only issue I personally had is I ordered a 2XL and belt is still large on last notch. I am afraid that going down a size would be too tight in hip/bust area. I wish more belts were offered separately to match dresses when this issue arises. I will either not wear a belt once waist is taken in or modify current belt with grommet tool to make more notches. (Posted on 2/1/2015)

I really love the style of this dress, and I thought it would be perfect for me... buuut, the sizing is incredibly strange. The sizing of the bust is so varying compared to the waist that it left so much space in the shoulder/bust area, while the rest of the dress fit perfectly. And I even ordered a small (which I usually get a medium), and even that was too big. Very confusing. I'm sad i couldn't keep this dress :/ (Posted on 1/22/2015)

I love this dress. I wore it to a Holiday Party with my husband in tow... The evening was a success, and my husband's eyes were on me all night! I had looks of envy, jealousy, and lust all night! I loved it!

Now... about the dress. The fit is true to size, be sure you select the fit by your measurements. It is form fitting and also holds you in where you need it. Be sure to wear no show undergarments as they will be seen. The dress has enough give that you won't be uncomfortable throughout the evening. I let the dress be the highlight, it needs few accessories, a simple necklace, simple earrings. This dress elongates you so be sure to wear the proper shoes to enhance that feature, I suggest d'Orsay or a peep toe pump without a strap. This dress is absolutely dreamy and will help you conquer the evening with elegance and style! (Posted on 12/30/2014)
Love the Dress - size could be a bit more accurateReview by Kat

I love the dress. BUT, the sizing is not accuate. I originally ordered a Small - which is the size I normally wear. I have an athletic build w/ a 34DD bust & had to exchange the Small for a Medium just so I could zip the top of the dress. I did find this a bit surprising considering this is a "Pin-Up" style clothing website and generally the Pin-Up Style pays homage to the busty woman - which is exactly why I like the style. I am a fairly small woman (my boyfriend says "Funsize"), I'm only 5'1" so moving up to a Medium presented length issues as well.

The dress still looked great but was not a perfect fit as the bottom half of the dress was not as fitted as a Small would have been. I don't want anyone to think I was unhappy with the dress.... that is NOT the case - I just dont want someone to get in a situation where they need the dress quickly & run into the same issue with the fit that I did. The customer service rep who helped me with the exchange was great ensuring that I would get my dress in time for my party. (Posted on 12/23/2014)

Lovely dress that has a goth-y vibe to it. I'd suggest sizing down, as it made out of a very stretchy, and rather thick, bengaline. A staple dress you need in your closet. (Posted on 12/19/2014)
