1970s vintage plunge front Bernshaw backless maxi dress
Bernshaw historically produced jolly good lookalikes of red carpet dresses, and I have had a few good ones from them. I’ve had this for years but only worn it a few times, and have to accept my waist probably won’t be that small again any time soon!
A fabulous backless halter, with adjustable width on the cups at the neckline - you can reveal more ‘plunge’ if you wish. Outer layer is a semi sheer geometric printed cotton or blend, fully lined a purple acetate. Fastens centre back of the skirt with a nylon zip, to the high waist/ underbust height.
The print is really good!
each cup coverage approx 10” at widest
waist to neck front 13.5”
waist to hem 40”
High waist 25”
Generally good with no damage, cleans and immediately wearable. Colour of print still good.
I’ve washed then noticed a tiny spot to bust (pointing) which I didn’t spot clean and may come out. The label is a little ruffled. Still very wearable as it comes!
