Women’s clothing sizes have altered dramatically over the past few decades. A vintage size 16 will not be the equivalent of a current-day size 16. In addition, many vintage items from the first half of the 20th century were tagged with an alphabetic system, such as: XXSSW (extra, extra slim small woman); XSSW (extra slim small woman); SSW (slim small woman); SW (small woman); W (woman) etc.
As such, it’s always best to refer to the measurements rather than actual ‘sizes’ – because an inch or a centimetre measurement has not changed over time! On each description, I will provide the tag’s sizing and relevant measurements (where included) and if there are no measurements on the label, I will provide the ‘laid flat’ measurements and a size estimate. To be sure the item will fit you, please pay close attention to the measurements provided and cross-reference them with your own body measurements to ensure a comfortable fit.
Throughout my shop, all pricing is listed in AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS (AUD$)
Items are lovingly packaged in recyclable materials and shipped in 100% compostable and zero-waste mailer bags made from Australian-owned HERO Packaging, or cardboard boxes, before setting off on their next adventure to your front door.
Condition of clothing
Vintage and pre-loved clothing has a life and character of its own. I like to think that the beauty of vintage pieces lies not only in the literal threads and fabric of a garment but in the unseen story and adventures that each piece has been on before it finds its way to you.
The vintage pieces here in my shop were made 30, 40, 50, 60 or even 70 years ago – so it’s worth remembering that vintage pieces (even those in pristine and mint condition) will naturally show some signs of wear. I have had repairs professionally made to any pieces that have required mending.
Any markings, stains or flaws that have not come out with professional cleaning but do not detract from the overall aesthetic of the piece will always be disclosed and described and depicted to the best of my ability – allowing you to make an informed decision before purchase.
Clothing items have been either professionally dry-cleaned, machine washed on gentle or lovingly hand-washed.
Due to the nature of vintage items, unfortunately we cannot accept returns. Please carefully check the item’s description and measurements. If you have any questions about a particular item, please shout out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via a direct message on my socials and I’ll be more than happy to help answer your queries.
