This jet-black velvet cocktail dress is understated, with one major exception. There is a fabulous, triangular cut-out right between the breasts, just above the empire seam. What this means for you depends on how you are built. Don't worry about overexposure, as the well-constructed darts and seaming of the "cups" will hold you in place. From a certain angle, a hint of skin and curve of breast is revealed. No, you might not want to wear this one to the office party, but for a romantic night out, it's a winner. Back is completely covered. Nylon Scovill back zip with top hook&eye. Skirt has a slight tulip shape. High-quality velvet, fully lined. Feels great. From the 1960s.
