I am really, really impressed with this dress. I'm a high-end dressmaker (with no time to sew for myself!) so I rarely want to risk buying ready-made. In this case, $118 well spent! The construction is very good, and the fabric is substantial. Most vintagey remakes are made in cheap cotton, but this dress isn't one of those.

The seam over the bust is period appropriate and cute, but it buckles badly because of fabric being stretch. Maybe I'm being picky and my dressmaker's-eyes are focussing on it more than anyone else would. I plan to stretch the bust over pre-molded cups, which I hope will eliminate the buckling.

I don't want that one small thing to dissuade anyone from getting this dress, because really, it's great. Really, really flattering! (Posted on 8/28/2015)

I was worried about the dress bleeding onto the trim so I figured if wash it first. I used a color catcher sheet and it didn't ruin the trim so that was good. The Main problem I have is the bust. Although it fits around my chest, the bust design itself is much smaller and makes me look flatter than I really am and gives it a funky look. Only suggestion I would make is maybe have an actual cup choice for dresses with this bust design. I know that Might make it more expensive but it would be worth it. Otherwise I enjoy the dress.

This was one of my very first purchases from PUG and it is to die for!

Some words of wisdom for those short gals: (I'm 5'1 or 5'2 on a good day) This dress is a bit long on me if i do not wear heels. It falls around 4 inches from my knee.
The material is very stretchy since I believe it is rayon. I accidentally ironed it wrong so mine had a meek iron print on the frontal portion of the skirt, however that still does not prevent or discourage me from wearing it!

Ps. I just turned 19 so Im not very familiar with heat settings on irons so don't judge me! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I bought this dress for a friend's wedding and I have worn it countless times since, it is so comfortable and so adorable when teamed with a petticoat. I have never had trouble with the color running, I bring it to the dry cleaners when it needs to be washed (all of my other PUG dresses go straight in the washing machine) as I don't want to run the risk of the dye running. The bust is small, I ordered the XL I'm 5'7" 42-33-42 however I can still wear it without being too booby. It's great that the dress can be worn without a bra. Fabulous! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

The fit of the dress is a dream for me. I'm 5'2 and definately on the higher side of chubby =0) and this dress not only looks fantastic but feels that way too! I was surprised by the weight of the dress, it's a bit heavy, but it's due to the quality of this fabric, it has some stretch, yet holds you in. The color is a true red, just beautiful. I usually wear a corset under my dresses to define my waist, but it's completely unnessary in this dress. I usually have to take in the tops of my dresses on the side and this is one of the few I haven't had to alter, I believe it's due to the fabric, it just lays perfectly. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

One of the only bengaline swing dresses I've seen, this dress is just so comfortable. I bought my usual medium (34d-28-37) as as with most bengaline styles, I probably could size down if not for the bust. My only complaint about this dress is the bust. It is cut very small which puts the darts at an awkward place. I hand wash this dress and have not had any issues with the red color leaking. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

It looks cute when other girls wear it but it might just not be my style. The fabric is thin and I don't like the shape I feel like it makes me look bigger than I am (2X). (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I had been eyeing PUG dresses for a long time and finally made the leap to purchase this dress for a pin up contest I was in.

The dress come quickly and was just as gorgeous as it shows on the website. It fit wonderfully and stayed pristine even though the hot summer weather.

I can't wait to purchase more! (Posted on 6/29/2014)

I am very particular about fit and comfort as I purchase swing dresses to perform in. This was perfect. It has enough stretch to fit snugly yet comfortable. It has a great swing to it even if the fabric is heavier that I thought it would be. It is extremely well made. I find it a little low cut but as I am not overtly busty it is acceptable.
