The Philomena dress from Punk Rave is simply stunning. Featuring adjustable elasticated shoulder straps, sweetheart neckline, princess and under bust seams, hidden side zip and a delicate lace skirt with mesh overlay and irregular hemline. Complete with an elasticated panel on the back for that perfect fit. Please Note; Punk Rave clothing is on the smaller size so if in doubt size up.

Beautiful but firm waistband
This is such a pretty dress! I selected the correct size based on measurements given for fit, however, the dress has a non-stretchy waistband which seems kind of crazy given that there is shirring just above the waistband to allow for a comfortable and flexible fit. So sadly this doesn't fit me right now. It's only a little off, so I'd say if you're on the top end of a size on the chart, or know you have a larger ribcage than average person of your size you may want to try the size up. What I will say though is that the materials used are beautiful, the lace is gorgeous in the lower half of the dress and the straps are stretchy and soft. Punk Rave quality is miles ahead of Killstar and Dark In Love. I'll be wearing this dress happily before the summer is out :)
Easy Wear for Goth Glam!
Comfy and elegant, this is a perfect easy-pick summer dress to feel glam and goth but without having to do much in the way of styling or effort. It just automatically looks great!
