For years, the Violet was one of our favorite and sexiest dresses, and it's back now in a new construction! With improved styling and fit, this bombshell of a wiggle is made of our favorite bengaline with velvet trim at the shoulders. The gathered bust is now lined in stretch charmeuse for comfort and support, and the bengaline continues under the velvet to give the shoulders more structure. The bust features a daring keyhole front and two black rhinestone faux buttons sparkle at the collar. Finished off with a back zip, puff sleeves, and a matching grommet velvet belt. Depending on your bust and shoulder size, you may want to size down for a tighter fit.

I never review anything, but I got this dress yesterday and I am in love (my husband almost fainted as well). I ordered the size according to measurements on the size chart and it fit like a glove. I am 5'4'' and 159 lb and ordered size L. It is very slimming, and highlighting all the right curves at the same time. I have a 22 month old, and still have some disproportionate fat in my belly and back, but you would not be able to tell it from seeing me in this dress. I am certain my chest/waist/hips ratio not like the model, but god damn if this dress doesn't make me like they are. AMAZING (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I ordered this dress because it's so different in style and very sexy. Well, let me say that my Husband's jaw dropped when I put it on! It's SO well made, and fully lined in the chest with built in support in the same area. The combination of stretch bengaline (which is one of the most FAB fabrics PUG uses) and the black velvet upper details, black velvet belt, as well as the rhinestone accents on the neck bring so much glamour and sex appeal to this dress. I love the peekaboo cleavage, which accents my 38D chest nicely. Gorgeous dress. I'm so happy I ordered mine! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
The Dress that made me fall in love with Pinup GirlReview by Michelle Nyree

What does one wear to meet Elvira? This dilemma is what brought me into the Pinup Girl boutique for the first time. The ladies in the store were incredibly helpful and when I tried on the Violet I fell instantly in love. The combination of bengaline and velvet feels luxurious, plus the neckline and details like the brooch-like buttons make this piece unique. And not only is it figure flattering, it is incredibly comfortable! I wore it all day for a shoot and never felt more comfortable "dressed up." I adore my Violet, and have since bought a number of other Pinup Girl dresses (including the red version of this one)! I highly recommend buying this dress, but warn you that once you do you might be infatuated forever! ;) (Posted on 12/4/2013)

After seeing the beautiful photo of Doris in the Violet I decided I needed it in my life. I was not dissapointed when it arrived, as advised I sized down to a medium and it fits like a glove. The lined bodice gives excellent structure and helps emphasise an hourglass silhouette. The kick pleat in the back of the skirt is a lovely feature and the tight pencil style really makes you wiggle.

The neckline is very daring and is definately not for everyday, but this truely is a showstopping piece. I am around 5'7" and am really happy with the length as it falls just below the knee on me.

I now have 5 dresses from PUG and this has to be my favourite, the details really make it a equisite piece. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

This dress is amazing. My husband surprised me with it today and I love it! However, I'm 5'6 and fit in a medium, for some reason this dress falls farther below the knee than what is pictured. I will have to have it hemmed up a bit. Other than that it is great! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
