Two more beautiful beaded dresses

Kayamiya Women’s 1920S Sequined Beaded, Floral Embellished, Fringe, Gatsby, Flapper Dress

Product Details

This is a really gorgeous dress, beautifully finished, and well constructed throughout, beaded hems and edges, neat stitching, clever hidden side zip BUT the sizing!
Knowing how many clothes on amazon are Asian sized I ordered 20-22.but its too small for me, a size 16-18.  I’d say its a 12, a 14 max, so do check that. Oddly the label on the dress says XXL….maybe sellers have tried to put sizing into a more workable context. The hip measures 38-40 inches and the bust area the same, and looking online that’s about right for a 12-14. The fabric does stretch generously, though doesn’t look so good when its pulled out of course.

Its got a very vintage feel which appeals to me, and yet the styling is so classic its suits any formal occasion.
The dress is a V-neck style which is very flattering to all bust types, and is sleeveless,. The hem is a deep, soft black fringing, though the length will depend on how tall you are. Its a loose waist style, very popular in 1920s – great for Xmas dinner parties!!
Its in black only, with sizes ranging from 6-8 to 20-22, but check measurements. If in doubt ask the sellers – I’ve found most are really helpful. Saves disappointment and returning items.
Its decorated with  thousands of tiny bugle beads and sequins in silver, black and a gorgeous sort of holographic effect blues and purples!
My passions for all things sparkly has found another dress I adore…if only it fitted 😦 Probably good most of these don’t. I’d spend the winter wearing beaded dresses every day – still, why not?
The decorated top layer covers a soft plain black under layer, which comes from neck right down to the start of the fringing. As the top layer is a mesh holding the decorations that’s needed, unless you’re looking for the Cher effect, in which case you could cut it out!!
Its polyester, which is fine to machine wash, but all those beads won’t like the battering so do as it says and carefully hand wash. Don’t wring it out but blot carefully in a towel before drying flat somewhere.

Its a perfect dress for summer balls and winter parties.

Stars: Five, just gorgeous, check sizing though

This is a really gorgeous dress, beautifully finished, and well constructed throughout, embroidery, sewn on sequins, fringed hem and well finished all round, BUT once more the sizing!
Knowing how many clothes on amazon are Asian sized I ordered a 14  but I’d say its a 10, maybe a 12 max, so do check that. It comes in sizes 8 to 14 so there isn’t a larger option. The hips and bust both  measure 36 inches, looking online that’s about right for a 10-12. The fabric does stretch generously, though doesn’t look so good when its pulled out of course.

Its got a very vintage feel which appeals to me, I love that era, yet the styling is so classic its suits any formal occasion. The dress is almost a sweetheart style neck line which is very flattering to all bust types, and its sleeveless. The hem is a deep soft black fringing, though the length will depend on how tall you are. Its a loose waist style, very popular in 1920s – great for Xmas dinner parties!!
The embroidery and sequins here mean its very flattering, drawing the eye away from tummy area, a perceived problem for many of us. I can recall even at a size 10-12 being convinced I had a huge tummy…..
Its in black only, with sizes ranging from 8 to 14, but check measurements. If in doubt ask the sellers – I’ve found most are really helpful. Saves disappointment and returning items.
Its decorated in a mix of embroidery and sequins in silver and  black, and is a little more subtle than many of the current beaded dresses available.
Its a gorgeous dress but once more sizing issues may be a problem 😦 When my granddaughter is here next I’ll get her to try it on, she’s an 8 so that should give an idea of sizing, and I’ll update.
The decorated lace top layer covers a soft plain black under layer, which comes from neck right down to the start of the fringing. As the top layer is a mesh holding the decorations that’s needed, unless you’re looking for the Cher effect in which case you could cut it out!!

Its  Polyamide outer with a Polyester lining, which is fine to machine wash, but all those beads won’t like the battering so do as it says and carefully hand wash. Don’t wring it out but blot carefully in a towel before drying flat somewhere.

Its a perfect dress for summer balls and winter parties, especially if you’re looking for something a bit more subtle and yet still suiting the occasion.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
