I guess we are all shaped differently. For me pug fits way better than bettie page.
so are the bettie page ones! I just hate tailoring.
I am getting ready to buy my first repro for a birthday luau in October (my bff's mom's bday, who is a major supporter of me being me, so I GOTTA be there in full PUG!). I went through the site last night (PUGC, CatsLikeUs, BettiePage) and I actually have an issue for all of them size-wise... I agree, I don't think I am way off in my body size/measurements (38c-d/34/42), but I don't know which to order - my hip size or bust size (I'm looking at the Polynesian dress in blues... sold out, but on the wait list ... so pretty & demure - perfect for a 60yr old's bday luau! hope it's in stock by October!). I finally decided that I'm going to have to go in and try-on (which I realize is a luxury a lot of girls don't have as they don't live in the area). I'm also pretty sure that I will have to do alterations - I'm short as well, so most of the time I have to get things hemmed. I can give you a heads up when I go in, if that will help. =) Not sure when I'll be going - I'm waiting for a weekend day when the train tickets are only $10 for unlimited use (I have to take 2 metrolink trains to get there), which may not be for a couple more weeks (and hopefully my dress will be in stock then!). I also will be trying on the DD & LBBL cig pants so I can get a gauge of the size (because I am looking at these for work since we are no longer allowed to wear leggings (but we can wear jeggings because they have a button... sorry, different rant).
Let me know if you'd like me to let you know how it goes... be happy to!!
xoox Jenn =)
Any feedback would be great. My measurements are really similar to yours! 42-33-42, maybe check out my pics to see if any of that stuff interests you because it may fit u similarly!
Will do, thanks!!
I usually worry about my hips, tummy and bottom so I shop more so for my hips than my bust (i am a 32 DDD) because in my mind a bit of boob is ok but a bit of tummy and love handle ...not so ok..
Have you looked at the Mai Tai shift dress? Its a cute little number that covers up but is gorgeous. The material will stretch to accommodate your waist :)
The Ginger is totally cute and the straps are halter which means you can adjust them
The Netti is another fav, because the straps can be adjusted to fit bust size :)
When you go onto the site you can search as per your body type as well.
I am lucky my measurements are 39, 28, 40 so pretty much everything fits me (except the Ginger for some reason)
For me I can't buy Bettie Page clothes online.
I have to try them on and 90% of the time they do NOT fit right.
Every P.U.G item I have bought thus far (knock on wood) has fit perfecto!
I also have amazing luck with collectif, such a good fun brand
