In really excellent vintage condition, the taffeta retains all of its lustre. If we're being exceptionally picky there is a small area of strained seam near the waistband and the two neck darts at the back have been slightly strained also. The dress could be further enhanced with a petticoat though it is very nearly a full circle on its own. Best fit for around a UK 6-8 or US 2.
