I’m going to admit straight out that I was quite surprised by your response to last weeks 1880s blue & brown bustle dress. I though that you would universally denounce it for well, everything. I thought it had potential in the materials, and potential in the design, but neither quite worked. But many of you liked it…a lot! Not all of you, by any means, but enough of you to bring the rating in at a quite impressive 8 out of 10 – a whole two points higher than I was expecting!
Shows how good I am at predicting your reactions!
I know that I usually stay pre-1960 with Rate the Dress, but sometimes I see something a bit more recent that I just think needs to be featured.
What a fascinating take on a swimsuit.
On the one hand, you could look at it and see an elaborate set of diaper-bloomers, with all that gathered fabric. On the other, you could see an interesting take on the way water flows and moved: the fabric will move about the body like water, and create its own dance of movement in the water, like loose hair.
What do you think of what you see?
