In the years that I've been wearing vintage I've noticed something very strange. Whenever I try on a vintage dress from the 50's through early 60's, the dress will fit like a glove every where, except there will be this really bizzare buldge of extra fabric in the stomach area. At first I just thought a few dresses were made kind of strangely, but time and time again I find these dresses with the weird stomach buldge! And it's not like I have a extremly weird body shape, I have wide hips with normal sized stomach, very normal!
So my question for you lovely ladies is, what am I missing?! Has anyone else come across this? What is with this weird buldge? I'm just so confused.
