Vintage swing dresses are generally associated with the 1950s, when full circle skirts and dresses were worn over petticoats that swung as women walked or danced at the sock hop. With their full bust, nipped-in waist, and curve enhancing skirt, plus size vintage swing dresses belong in every retro cat’s wardrobe. Vintage 50s swing dresses morphed into the trapeze dress in the 60s during the age of the Mods.
