About 50s Dresses

The 1950s dresses focused primarily on the narrowness of the waist. The dresses such as full skirt and pencil slim tubular skirt mainly revolved around this theme. The knitted woolen sweater dress design became quiet popular in the late fifties. They had a shirt tab front or cowl neck, beneath the dress, a long line bra, and girdle were normally worn. The fabrics used in the 1950s were synthetic made from petrochemicals. These made the clothes easy to wash and dry with minimal or no ironing required. Nylon (Polyamide), Crimplene (Polyester) and Orlon (Acrylic/ Polyacrylonitrile) were the different synthetic materials used. Polyester had the added advantage over nylon clothes as it did not turn yellow over the years as nylon did. These materials slide over the body smoothly accentuating the shape and making tailoring easier. The quality of the zip was also enhanced during this time, which made sewing simpler. The H, A, Y lines and Sack, Trapeze and Empire dresses were widely used in the 1950s. The H-line boosted a slender tunic suit and a slim skirt with a dropped waist and a climbing hemline. The Sack style employed straighter waist less shift dresses. Initially it was popular as a darted sheath dress and towards the end of the 50s it transformed into a loose straight short shift dress. The trapeze was triangular in shape; designed as a swinging dress to be worn with low shoes and bouffant hairstyles.
