Pinup Couture Jenny Dress in Lavender

Availability: In stock

$142.00
Inspired by an early 1960s sundress design, the Jenny Dress in Lavender is a flirty full skirted dream with a bodice that is boned and fused throughout. This gives your bust amazing structure while beautifully cinching your waist in. The straps are adjustable to accommodate a large range of bust sizes, no matter if you're smaller or fuller in that area. The Jenny Dress is now considered a Pinup Girl classic, giving you the option of wearing it to work with a cardigan to be office-friendly and transitioning to a night out to the movies or for a drink at your favorite spot. Made in our beautiful cotton sateen which loosens and breathes as you wear it, but will not lose its shape giving you wear for years to come. This dress has a full gathered skirt with deep set pockets and is finished off with a long back zip.

Lavender is exclusive to Pinupgirlclothing.com and Pinup Girl Boutique!

Proudly made in the USA of imported goods.

I LOVE THIS DRESS! I've been debating a Jenny dress for a few months now as I started to loose weight back in January. To say I was apprehensive about ordering a 2X was an understatement! I am particularly large around the waist compared to other places (current measurements: bust: 46 waist: 40) and reading the reviews online I was sure it would be another 'inspirational dieting dress'.

THE DRESS FITS! A little tightly in the waist but it's just the most lovely dress I could have ever imagined! (and I'm not saying I own a lot of dresses but people think it's strange if I wear pants haha). The quality is amazing and the colour is just sublime!

I am from England and so the shipping did make my eyes water a little but it was so worth it and I will definitely buy another Jenny dress and more clothes from PUG in the future. They really are masters at their craft and I can't wait to wear this dress at my graduation, along with everyday leading up to and after it! ;)

I have had very good luck with PUG, I am a stickler with knowing my measurements and reading descriptions. With that being said, this dress was way too small, no give what so ever and I was pretty heartbroken about it. I even do waist training and after cinching myself in, I was still unable to pull it up past a certain seam. It's a lovely dress, just be prepared to order up.

I adore the Jenny dress, but this one just doesn't fit me right. I already own the Neverland print Jenny, which fits me and looks great in Large.

I bought this dress in a Large, however it is so much smaller, particularly the waist. I couldn't even begin to zip it up. I then ordered it in an XL, which I received last night. Although it fits at the waist, the bodice (particularly the chest) is terrible and gapes. The boning sticks out and the bodice is cut much longer, and doesn't sit on my waits. The material too seems a little different than the Large.

Much as I love the colour of this dress, I have to give up at this point. It might work for someone with a very small waist and larger chest.

Hips: N/A
Size Ordered: Medium

This is a gorgeous dress but unfortunately it has 0 stretch.
I love the adjustable straps, the lining, and the boning. I stand at 5'1 and the length is perfect.

Like Kay stated, the bodice bends outward near the bust. Don't know why.

If you are between sizes definitely order up for a more comfortable fit.

Every time i wear this dress I feel like a million bucks!
I can dress it up or down for a multitude of occasions.
The skirt is nice and fuller than most full skirt dresses on the marked and adds to a sultry hour glass shape whilst not making the wearer look larger than they are.
The boning is another feature i love about this dress, i often slouch and the boning reminds me to sit up straight
I would love to see the Jenny dress in some more colours

This dress is more beautiful on then in the pictures. The length, colour, and fabric is wonderful and I am very short!
However, the waist is barely 28" in the M, and zero stretch! The bust is enormous! Due to the lining, and boning its much to complicated to take this in on top. The boning digs in to the waist, and the dress rides up.
Sadly this dress is a no for me.
I'm 32C, 28, 36 and I'm 5". I tried the medium.

No stretch in the waist area at all....

Ladies this dress has no stretch in the waist area at all. My measurements are bust 39 (bra size 36D), waist 32 and hips 40. I purchased a large and once my husband helped me zip the dress up the waist was so tight it cut into my belly leaving belly fat on top and bottom of the waist. Now the top of the dress in my bust area fit perfect. My bust was not constricted and gave good coverage, just like the model in the picture. I thought of returning the large for a x-large but I came to the conclusion that the x-large would most likely fix my waist but would be way to big for my bust area. Unfortunately, this dress is not for me due to my measurements. That being said...the dress is of good quality and the material is lovely. On a personal note....please ladies when giving a review write down your measurements .......it helps out other ladies that are your same measurements when picking out which size to purchase. Thank so much and I hope this review was helpful.

Beautiful dress but the boning needs getting used to

Like most of the PUG community, I immediately fell in love with the Jenny dress when I first caught a glimpse of it from PUG's Instagram/Facebook page. As soon as it hit the website, I immediately bought the lavender and the Harlequin print and was mostly pleased with them both when they arrive.

Firstly, I love the adjustable straps, slight elasticized neckline at the back and hook and eye at the top of the back zipper. The boning gives the bodice a nice shape but I feel like my bust should be bigger to fill this out - I tried it with my Freya deco plunge bra which is padded and that seem to work ok.

The bad news is that the waist is fitted. Like, super fitted that I cannot afford to gain half an inch (or have a big lunch) as there is not even a slight give in this area at all. I know that with the Evelyn/Dee Dee, it is slightly elasticized at the waist so I feel like the Jenny is quite unforgiving in this area. Also the bodice is lined so the usual relaxing of the cotton sateen is not that apparent with the Jenny and therefore has a closer fit compared to the other PUG dresses that don't have a lining. Size-wise, I fit right in the medium based on the chart so that was what I ordered.

Having worn the lavender Jenny for the entire day, I was able to wear a regular bra with it although I think I can also get away with not wearing one because of the lined, boned bodice. However, the boning just under the bust seem to buckle outwards when sitting down for long periods of time. The ends of the boning also sat right on my natural waist so this tends to dig in after a while. There is a bit of room on the bodice just under the bust for me so I don't know whether this is the reason why it's doing this. I would've thought it would bend inwards (sitting down creates a crease if that makes sense) but it's weird it's bending out and I'm quite mindful of my posture most of the time. So I'm not quite sure what to do and whether this is inherent with plastic boning (contrary to spiral steel, which is what I'm used to since I regularly wear vintage torsolettes/long line bustiers), and I'm a little worried that the plastic boning may warp over time with wear.

That said, it is a beautiful dress and the colour is the same as the purple Vamp top. The skirt has a lot of volume and looks pretty exceptional when worn with a petticoat underneath. Apart from the boning issue, I can happily buy more in other colours; the yet-to-be-released Jayne dress comes in solid yellow and pink, and I would love to see the Jenny in those shades.
