    Wonderful. I love the cuban heels of the era, wish they would come back in style. They gave an impression of slightness, but bowed out near the floor to supply a stable heel that must have helped while dancing. Today, women wobble around in those stupid platforms; graceful social dancing is gone.

    This was great, thanks, I’ve been looking for "flapper dress costume canada" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Panadarson Flapper Falbala – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my co-worker got great success with it.
