Behold the magical swing dress. This vintage design found its place in the ‘50s with a fit that is ideal for creating a covetable hourglass figure. Commonly referred to as the fit and flare dress, the swing dress aptly features a fitted bodice that defines small waists as well as a flared skirt that flows away from the hip, achieving a look that’s both classy and beautifully feminine.
The swing dress had a solid following in the 1940s, At the time, women would oftentimes pair elegant gloves, scarves, hats, and pumps with their dresses to pull everything together.
Swing dresses are still beloved by modern designers, celebrities, and stylists for their ability to consistently flatter a woman’s figure. The fullness of a circle skirt conceals larger hips and balances upper and lower proportions with ease.
Whether you prefer a basic dress for versatility or a bold option that lights up a room, our collection of swing dresses is filled with various colors and prints to accommodate your style preferences. Belted waists, sweetheart necklines, tie-front bodices, button accents, and bold collars all provide their own unique touches to this ladylike silhouette. You can rock this flattering style in the modern workplace as well as on a romantic date night with your sweetie.
Please Note: If you are in between sizes (example: Your waist measures 27 inches... and the garment does not stretch, go up to the next size (So a 27 inch waist would go up to a size medium).
How To measure Yourself
Using a tape measure, measure around the fullest part of your bust. The tape should run straight across your bust points, and around your back. Keep your arms at your side, and make sure that the tape is parallel to the floor. See diagram on left.
Standing straight up, measure around the thinnest part of your waistline. Ultimately your waistline is the thinnest measurement around your body: between your belly button, and under your bra cup. This varies on different body types, so you should measure a few times, and ultimately pick the thinnest measurement. See diagram on left.
Standing straight up and with heels together on the floor, measure around the fullest part of your hips. Your hip measurement is ultimately the widest part between your belly button and thighs. This varies on different body types, so you should measure a few times, and ultimately pick the widest measurement. See diagram on left.
