I have a little confession to make. Let’s keep it between you and me, ok? Sometimes I buy an extra dress from my amazing brands, just so I can purchase a dress for myself. I have purchased myself one of every Melissa that is going into the shop! Don’t judge me!
The Melissa dress by Dolly & Dotty, in Blue & White classic strapless dress with a full circle skirt, this dress makes me feel like a pinup in a tattoo, curvy, pretty and just a little bit naughty. It is equally as flattering with or without a crinoline underneath. A gorgeously flattering bodice and circle skirt with a blue anchor embroidered just above the hemline on the right hand side.
And for those of us who might feel a little uneasy about wearing strapless (or me – who has the shoulders of a footballer), this amazing dress is elasticated at top at the back, which allows for your perfect fit.
Washing instructions: Wash between 30-40 degrees. Do not tumble dry.
Some UK brands sizing require you to size up – ie, if you are a 14 AU, choose a 16 UK, BUT Dolly & Dotty dresses have incredible sizing – true to size. You can be confident that your usual Australian size will fit you beautifully.
Dolly & Dotty
We here at Cheribomb Retro have no words for the love we have for Dolly & Dotty. The quality is beautiful, but affordable, the sizes realistic. Every dress is made from high quality fabric and is the essence of the 1950s! They are honestly gorgeous dresses for real women.
Dolly & Dotty are obsessed with all things vintage, and their beautiful collection captures the spirit of 1950’s Rockabilly girls! Sizing is generous – generally with UK brands, we need to size up for Australian sizes, but you can wear your Australian size comfortably with Dolly & Dotty. View the size chart here
