Sultry and Sexy does not have to mean Immodest!

You see it everywhere. Young ladies flaunting everything they've got in gowns that perhaps take a yard to a yard and a half of material with necklines to the bottom of their cleavage or hemlines an inch below the good china (thank you Peach Carr!). So take it from Love Train Vintage there is nothing more sexy or sultry than leaving something to the imagination. With that in mind we have some fabulous vintage gowns that do just that. So for a change of pace this New Years Eve give sultry, sexy and modest a try. Leave a little to his imagination. Fitted and clingy can do much more than putting it all out there on a platter!
