Figure-hugging, jet black chiffon party or cocktail dress from the 1980s. Stretchy lining hugs your curves, gently. Spaghetti straps, princess neckline, and ruching all down the bodice. Flowy, dance-ready skirt with asymmetrical hem that's longer in back than in front. Nylon Talon back zip. Made in the U.S.A. Calls to mind Princess Diana's famous "revenge" dress of the same era.
