Storyline

A woman takes a revealing blue leather dress to a used-clothing shop; it reminds her of a man she now detests. During that day, three women wear it and two more recall wearing it: its effect on them and on men is powerfully erotic. Debby and Tammy recall how Nigel used the dress as an aphrodisiac with each of them. Claudia tries on the dress and snares the clerk's attention. Later that day, she loans it to Lorraine who wants to get her boyfriend's attention, but before it works its magic on him, Lorraine's secretary borrows it to lose some of her inhibitions with a job applicant. Even though the dress, whose one size fits all, never stays on long, the high heels do. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Light and airy Couples porn by the divine Candida
19 December 2016 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Julien Duvivier's "Tales of Manhattan" made during WW II is the epitome of vignette cinema in which an object passed from hand to hand (in its case, a formal tail coat) is used to knit together the pieces of the film. The late Candida Royalle adopted the same format for her delightful "One Size Fits All", a tale of a gown and the sexy women who wear it.

The feature begins with Candida's cameo, bringing the gown to a dress shop run by Tom Byron -she has no use for it. There follows a series of customers and borrowers who take the gown and wear it seductively over the course of five sex vignettes, the story inevitably coming full circle.

The sequences are titled: "Ignition", "Seduction", "Deception", Audition" and "Combustion", and the actresses all fulfill the viewer's dream-girl conception to provide satisfying eroticism. Candida is ever-tasteful, creating explicitly sexy scenes while avoiding all the clichés and excesses of mainstream porn, especially as compared to the gonzo/low- brow content that dominates Adult Cinema two decades later. As a writer- director she marched to the beat of her own drummer, and her work holds up very well to viewers committed to such antique niceties as: story, characters, tastefulness, and beauty.

Made back-to-back with overlapping cast from Royalle's lovely "The Bridal Party" feature, film benefits from the acting and sexiness of the unique redhead Melissa Hill, the pristine beauty of then-superstar Missy, the divine Shanna McCullough, timeless talent Nina Hartley and a very earthy, non-porno-like Italian import Gina Rome. Highly recommended for traditionalists, its virtues will go completely unnoticed by the current porno hoi polloi.
