Throwback to the 50's with Lil' Miss Vintage


The Rubenesque Effect ladies had the pleasure of having our last shoot's outfits sponsored by 
We thought we would give you a little review of the gorgeous dresses we were given...

Price: £40 
Available Sizes: UK 8 to UK 24
This dress truly is delightful! I wore a size 20 in this style. I am between sizes 18/20 so the 20 was roomy on me, but I would say this runs true to size. The colours were gloriously eye-catching and the cut was flattering to my curves.  The bow on the waist is for feature only, but the cut of the dress does cinch in at the waist to create an hourglass figure.  The material has a stretch to it, it's a cotton and elastane mix.  It can be worn with or without a petticoat but the skirt has a beautiful flare to it.  There is a small triangle keyhole cut out at the neck to add a little reveal.  This dress makes me instantly feel girly and adorable and I cannot wait to wear it again!

Dani said; "I had the pleasure of wearing the Amelia Pink Floral Swing Dress with the white petticoat. As soon as I slipped it on I felt like I had transformed into the perfect 1950s housewife. The fit was perfect and sat well on all my curves. I loved the extra detail on the bust area and with the array of different colours on the floral pattern it was easy to accessorise with different coloured jewellery or heels. The dress wasn't restricted for me to move in and flowed how a swing dress should do. Definitely a thumbs up from me." Dani was wearing a size 18.

Claire said; "I absolutely loved my dress, the fit was perfect, it pulled me in at the waist and really flared out so it gave me a really nice shape.  I love the colour; cornflour blue, my favourite and it made my eyes pop!  It's such a classic dress, polka dots are always a winner, I'm so happy with the dress and so happy I got to keep it! :)" Claire was wearing the Size 20.

Kirsty said; "I was very lucky and really happy to wear a Lil Miss Vintage dress. My dress was not only beautiful, but such lovely quality fabric too! Usually getting the correct size is so hard to get right when ordering online, however I was so pleased and impressed that as a size 16 lady the '16' dress I ordered was a perfect fit!  It has a back zip as well as an elasticated panel, which along with the halter neck tie meant that even a larger busted girl, such as myself, could wear this dress comfortably.  The full skirt really gives that wow factor and the overall shape & length is so flattering! 10 out 10 from me!" Obviously Kirsty was wearing as size 16.

Sian said; "I love a dress with a great pattern on, and I was over the moon to receive the Cupcake dress. It's bright, fun and beautiful.  It's a halter neck with a sweetheart neck line which is super flattering on a fuller busted female.  It has a think black band around the middle to emphasise a small waist, which if you wanted to nip in the waist a little more with a waist cinching belt to boot, you definitely could!  The skirt is a full circle one and looks just as amazing on it's own as it does with a petticoat underneath for more volume! I felt super girly and pretty in this gorgeous dress and oh so vintage!" Sian was wearing a size 22.

I think you would agree that all these dresses look fabulous on the ladies and we cannot recommend Lil Miss Vintage enough.
