Original Vintage 50s Balck Beaded Evening Gown

This is an absolutely stunning evening gown. The cut is a classic with a fitted bodice and full length A line skirt. This dress is made from a heavy black synthetic material that has a subtle sheen that makes the dress come alive.

At the top of the bodice there is flat horizontal pleating detail which adds some volume to the bust and enhance curves. There is a low back with the two thick straps meeting in the centre for sex appeal without revealing too much flesh. Around the front of the bodice there are two strips which come up in a sort of draping detail. One strip is sewn in place but the other does up with poppers over the zip. These strips have beautiful beading detail like a vine made tiny black beads that reflect the light gorgeously.

The heavy skirt will move wonderfully with you as you dance the night away at the next ball.

Very good condition.

Terms of Sale

We are committed to the highest standards in authenticity and preparation of the vintage clothes we sell, and do our best to ensure that you won't find any unexpected problems with them.

But these are always one-off items, with non-standard sizing and around 40 to 80 years old, so only rarely will they be in mint condition.

Bearing all that in mind, we want you to be thrilled with anything you buy from us, so if you have any reason to think that it is not right, please drop us a line. We will always accept returns (14 days, and you will need to pay the return postage cost) and can either exchange for an alternative (in which case, we'll cover the cost of shipping the exchange item to you) or give a refund on the cost of the item (the shipping charge will then normally be deducted from the refund you receive).


The actual dress measurements are specified in my listing above.

A good way to check sizing is to use the measurements provided to compare against a similar dress of your own which you know fits you well.

I do give dress sizes for guidance, and just so you know, this is how I work it out:

UK size Bust in cm Waist in cm Hips in cm Euro size
8 80 - 84 62 - 66 87 - 91 36
10 84 - 88 66 - 70 91 - 96 38
12 88 - 92 70 - 75 96 - 101 40
14 92 - 97 75 - 80 101 - 106 42
16 97 - 102 80 - 85 106 - 111 44
18 102 - 107 85 - 91 111 - 116 46
