I want a knockout Joan Holloway worthy dress. Help!
Joan actually wears quite bodycon shapes, lots of sweetheart necks but not very 50s shapes (the typical 50s shape would be mid calf, tight on bodice and loose hooped skirt). I don't personally think the 50s shape flatters many because they tend to cover up great legs, which most people have even if more self conscious about stomach etc. could you go for a more slimline look?
I actually have that dress and it is stunning, really fab fit, good cleavage and i got loads of compliments when wearing it... I am a size 14 apple at present and it actually gives me a shape so would be fab on an hourglass figure
