A statement piece gown fit for a burlesque queen! Ultra-sexy in ruby red velveteen, you'll feel like a pinup siren with the padded halter bust adding oomph to your girls while the dangling beaded loops dazzle the eye. Curve-hugging and cut to show off your bombshell silhouette, this mermaid dress flares out from the knee to a trumpet skirt, a short train trailing behind you. Backless, bold, and oh so ravishing!
