The Shimmer, she is a stunning late 70s early 80s party beauty by Ann Green. She is made from a man made fibre.
Shimmer is ready to party! She has an amazing ra-ra style silhouette with flounce bardot neckline, puff sleeves and a tiered skirt. Her gold and silver lurex stripes shine so bright!
This girl is quite flexible in size due to having an elasticated neckline and waist. She would work on UK sizes 10/12/14 best.
Bust - up to 42"
Waist -up to 36"
Length - 45"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Shimmer has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
