To the Bride,

I understand that it can be a bit nerve-wracking to purchase a wedding dress online, especially when it’s vintage. Your wedding gown will be one of the most important garments you’ll ever wear. I will walk you through any questions you may have and help put you at ease. My goal is to ensure that every bride who buys a gown from The Vintage Mistress is delighted with her purchase.

And here are some tips that may aid in your decision-making process. If there’s a particular dress you love in my shop, I encourage you to visit a bridal store to try on a modern dress that is similar in silhouette and style. That way, you’ll know which style looks best on you before purchasing the vintage gown. If alterations are needed, visit a seamstress beforehand so you have knowledge of the method, time length and costs involved to alter the gown. Lastly, ask a bridal expert to take your body measurements as this is essential to know when purchasing a vintage garment.

You are special, and you deserve a special gown. Each bride is important to me and I will help you look and feel beautiful and blissful on your wedding day!

Additional policies

Vintage sizes and shapes are not equivalent to contemporary sizes and shapes.
Vintage garments were often tailored and cut much different than today's clothing. To get the best fit from vintage clothing compare your body measurements to the listing's measurements and factor in enough "wiggle" room to move comfortably in the garment. It's always best to know your true measurements rather than assuming them. If you need help, have a professional take them for you.

• A COURTESY GUIDE TO MEASURING YOURSELF •
Use a flexible cloth tape measure and measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear and NOT over your clothing. Keep the tape measure straight and level. Example: If you plan to wear a special type of bra or perhaps a girdle under the vintage garment, measure yourself while wearing these.

BUST: Measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.

UNDERBUST / EMPIRE WAIST: Measure around the fullest part of your ribcage, about midway between your bust and waist.

WAIST: Measure around the smallest point of your waist where it naturally curves in on the side.

HIP: Measure around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks, keeping the tape measure straight and even. This is usually about 8"-9" below your waist.

SHOULDER TO WAIST: Measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front going over your bust to your waist.

SHOULDER WIDTH: Measure from the point where your shoulder begins
curving down into the arm, across your back, to the next shoulder point.

TOTAL LENGTH: Measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front going over your bust, to the point you want the garment to end.


• A GUIDE TO MEASURING A GARMENT •
Below is my measuring procedure for merchandise in this shop. All measurements are provided in inches. If you need a measurement taken in a different way than what my procedure describes, contact me before purchasing.

My measurements are taken on the outside of the garment, laid upon a smooth solid surface, with wrinkles/creases smoothed flat using a cloth tape measure. The garment must be buttoned or zipped up and not distorted.
BUST: Measured from outside edge of armpit seam to outside edge of next armpit seam x2.
WAIST: Smallest point of bodice where fabric curves inwards, measuring straight across from outside edge to outside edge x2.
HIP: Widest point below waist, measuring straight across from outside edge to outside edge x2.
TOTAL LENGTH: Middle point of shoulder seam to where the garment ends at bottom going straight down.
SHOULDER: Straight across the back, one shoulder seam to the next.
SLEEVE: Measured from the top of sleeve seam to the end of the sleeve.
SHOE INSOLES: Measured from the interior, heel to toe tip.
SHOE WIDTH: Measured at the ball's widest point, on the shoe's exterior sole.
