Plus Size 1950s Sweetheart Dress Costume
Do you ever hear an Elvis song and feel a deep twinge of longing for days gone by? Did you beg your parents to stop at those drive-in diners with the homemade root beer when you were a kid? Have you ever wondered where, when, and why dancing lost its swing? The '50's sure were a magical time. A time when the right attitude could make everything swell, a time when the mystic beehive rose on the heads of housewives everywhere, a time when you could put absolutely anything in Jell-O. Seriously, they put carrots and peas in their Jell-O.
Sure, we wouldn't want to go back in time, these smartphones are sure handy. It's just that our era has lost some of the cheery nature of the fabulous 50's. Now we live in an age where we eat drive through instead of drive-in, positive attitudes are seen as naïve, and Jell-O is only served in hospitals. Together, we can bring back some of that 50's charm.
Wearing this cherry red polka dot dress can remind everyone how charming the 50's could be. This plus size dress has a sweetheart neckline and a sweet little shrug to go with it. The flattering waistline is accentuated with an elastic belt that perfectly matches the white piping on the dress. To get that perfect flounce to your skirt, remember the ever essential 50's undergarment, the petticoat. You'll be ready to rock around the clock every time you put on your sweetheart dress.
