Your 5 star reviews are really important and a big help for future buyers to feel confident in buying from us. If you feel like you have not received 5 star service PLEASE let me know, I'm here to help.

Make sure to review the pictures and measurements prior to purchase. For sizing, it's best to compare the measurements we provide in the measurements section to the measurements of a similar item that you already own that fits you well.

Some questions we get are subjective in nature as everyone is different and ones I cannot answer confidently. For example, how an item may "look when worn with another item", "feel", "smell", "shade of color", "how heavy if feels", "sheerness", "what grade is it on a 1-10 scale", etc. Feel confident in knowing we provide great items and have a very long and successful history on the site. We do not sell anything we wouldn't be happy to have in our own closet.

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage sizing is much different than modern sizing. We provide a "size estimate" but that is not universal and is a very rough guideline. Please compare the actual garments measurements to something you already own to be sure of most accurate fit/size. Please ask any question prior to making your purchase, we're happy to help!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Since vintage sizing is so much different than modern sizing, the measurements given in the listing will be the most accurate way to determine fit/sizing. The best thing I tell all of my buyers to do is to compare the measurements we provide for the item to the measurements of a similar item you already own that fits you well to see how they match up.

Do you offer deals for multiple items purchased

Yes! Please send me a link to the items you are wanting to purchase and I will let you know how much more I can lower the price for you. The more items purchased will allow me to discount the order more.

Custom and personalized orders

Due to problems we've had in the past we are no longer able to offer partial payments, reserves or lay away on our items. I can sometimes make exceptions if the hold is for 24 hours or less.
