* tagged 100% rayon but this feels like a smooth cotton
* Care instructions, you should either handwash in cold or dryclean. Dryclean is recommended
* Full circle skirt Shown with a light crinoline skirt for fullness (not included)
* Full panel ribcage elastic smocking on both sides and portion of under bust. Springy! No boning
* Slight ruched bust There's no size but I would say it is closer to a Large or maybe an XL if your proportions are not too out of whack and you want it snug! If you need help with sizing let me know so i can help Just for visual reference the mannequin with the dress unpinned is 35-25-36. Its loose in the bust and has more room in the waistline. The bust on my mannequin needs a bigger cup or a push up bra! The dress is not lined in the bodice so you need one to make it umm perky!
* Bust: 36" to 40" If you have a full cup this will suit you. There is ample elastic smocking all over the sides and even under the bustline so it will probably allow you to add a few inches more if you are borderline
* Waist: 30" stretches to 35" (measures laying flat 15" across)
* Waist to hem: 27"
* Hips: Full & open
* Total length shoulder to hemline: About 45" including the straps. Add more or less by adjusting the ties
* No flaws or damage or any wear. Vintage STYLE but in a newer made dress. This could be suitable for holiday gift giving by the condition I will ship within 1 day of purchase for United States. That is the fastest I can ship it.
