Oh! I love the glamour of a 1940s topper. This luxurious vintage hat is made of decadent millinery flowers and wonderful dotted veiling, all atop a soft woven perch base. I love the comfortable fit of the more flexible material - a rarity in hats of the era. The roses and posies in such a big bouquet will be a striking spring statement with your favorite frock. It can be pinned back on the head, as shown, or worn dramatically forward, held on by the elastic back band.

This hat can be worn by all head sizes.

Condition: Very Good
The netting has some breaks, but the impact is very minimal, as the veil simply gathers around the flowers and ribbon. The flowers are fresh and the grosgrain ribbon is still clean. I find no other issues to note!

Yes, you are exactly right! All items larger than the model are pinned too represent their accurate fit and shape. We are careful to accurately represent the actual cut of the garment. Don't rely on the size of the model in any way.
I allow returns or exchanges in only rare occasions - only when I have made an egregious error.

You must contact us with 48 hours of receiving your order if you have an issue, and if an exchange is approved, it must be sent within 48 hours after our communication. Items purchased and worn for special events may not be returned - we are not a rental facility. No refunds are issued based on issues with the fit of a garment, please measure carefully and feel free to make inquiries if you need help with sizing.

Vintage lingerie cannot be returned or exchanged, due to its intimate nature. Clearance items, items noted "as-is" and items sold on layaway may not be returned or exchanged.
