We're not sure what's more amazing: These Herbert Sondheim-for-Hermes dresses, or the last model's 22" waist.

1952 Retail price ~ $29 (or, $232 today).

the white with the "tie" is certainly my favorite, looks comfy to boot.

Wonderful dresses. Wonderful. And the price, even by today's standards, not bad at all.
