Loving Mad Men and women's curvey 60s style

(picture courtesy of LA times - click here for more pics)
I didn't watch the first series so I'm a bit behind on some of the storylines but I love Mad Men! (BBC4). Set in the early sixties in an ad office it's full of men with pre-historic attitudes, chain smoking and women who, whilst all battling with the men in their lives exude corsetted but curvey style.

The women - particularly Joan (pictured in pink) must make skinnies tut in envy in the retro style which absolutely suits anyone with curves. Indeed it seems to be part of a back-lash against the rail-thin models of late, as discussed in This Sunday Times Style article.

As it says in the article - women with curves look best in clothing that skims their shape, rather than baggy modern styles so sadly smocks and dresses such as our Asturius dress (£69) are not ideal.

Fitted dresses are in fact a curvey girls' best friend as they elongate the body as well as accentuating all your best bits. Our Fever dresses are cut with curves in mind and all have a suitable Mad Men retro style such as the Fever Atlantis dress (pictured £69)

For more Mad Men info - this BBC article tells you about the lengths the program makers' have gone into to recreate the look, not only of the characters but their office and home surroundings.

Anyway, until next time
