The right pinup dress fits a woman of any shape or size, so don’t worry if you’ve got curves or not. These dresses are designed to enhance your assets and fierce, natural beauty!

Couture. Providing burlesque outfits at reasonable prices with a small but knowledgeable staff, they provide hassle-free, one-stopping shopping for all your glamour-puss needs.
Nina, who was originally an avid a member of the London gothic scene, began sewing her doll’s clothes from leftover fabric scraps at the age of eight. She continued to develop her skills and later successfully sold her own custom, handmade, original design bone-top and lace corsets to her high school chums for party money. After finishing her education, she spent time as a seamstress for Homberg’s Theatrical Costumiers in Leeds, England but was earning her bread and butter in IT. Fortunately, she was seduced by the burlesque world after watching a Miss Beeby performance in an Amsterdam supper club. Inspired, she returned to her beloved sewing machine, began designing her own burlesque costumes and set up the Love Burlesque boutique.
An enterprising spirit, she now not only hand sews her Bite Me! Couture items, she also shares her skills with others, offering classes from her home base in the Netherlands on basic sewing, sewing from commercial patterns and on the art of creating original and custom patterns.

Its base of business is in Boise, Idaho, although all of their clothes are designed, sewn and shipped from their Bali studio located in an orchid-filled tropical garden.
The brainchild of long-time Hollywood and celebrity seamstress and fashion designer Katherine Robinson, Whirling Turban’s fledgling roots began back in 2000 when Ms. Robinson found herself broke in Bali, with considerable experience and skills designing and fabricating custom clothing and the idea of selling vintage couture clothing online. She happened to own an original Alfred Shaheen, replicated it precisely and put it up for auction on Ebay.
Stunned by its rapid bidding war, she moved on to make and auction vintage reproductions of 1950s Hawaiian dresses. These proved so successful she expanded her business and moved to her own online shop specializing in 1940s and 1950s vintage pin up style dresses, skirts, and shrugs, and custom tea-length wedding dresses.Still living in Bali, Ms. Robinson and a few Balinese expert seamstresses handcraft everything they sell.
Whirling Turban offers each and every one of their customers a ” Movie Star Fit” by creating individual custom dress forms from their measurements to build each dress. A self-proclaimed perfectionist, each piece that Katherine Robinson sells is not only a painstakingly created work of art but a long-term fashion investment.
Whirling Turban has a huge selection of styles to choose from plus a wide variety of print, solid and brocade fabrics. Circle skirts, sarong skirts, waterfall skirts and Classic 1950s sheaths, plus pin up pants, shirts, shorts and combos, rockabilly peek-a-boo dresses and a classic interpretation of Frederick’s of Hollywood 1956 “Hawaiian Heaven” dress are just a sample of their items. They also offer “off the rack” wedding and bombshell dresses in standard sizes with minor alterations available.
Whirling Turban is a high-end shop yet their prices are very reasonable for unique couture clothing. Their ready-made boutique dresses range from to $150 to $1000, depending on the style, and their custom clothing starts at $255 and caps at $2000 per dress. Shipping runs from $25 to $30 in Asia and the Pacific, to $50 everywhere else.
