Refunds and Exchanges
Although all sales are considered final, refunds are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but will only be given if the item received significantly differs from the item description. Improper fit and color issues due to monitor differences are not grounds for a return. Shipping fees are non-refundable.

To ensure a proper fit, we suggest you compare the measurements provided with something similar you already own. Also, you may refer to our MODERN SIZE GUIDE below for more information on how we determine an item's size. Please read the item description carefully and contact us with any questions prior to purchase, we are happy to provide more measurements or photos. We want you to be happy with your purchase!
Additional policies and FAQs

Most of the items available in our shop are vintage - they have had past lives and been loved by others. So here is a little more information on our system...

EXCELLENT- LIKE NEW: item appears to have never been worn
EXCELLENT: item has very little/mild signs of wear and may have very small/insignificant flaws and repairs
VERY GOOD: item has normal signs of wear for its age and may have small flaws and/or repairs noted
GOOD: item has been loved - more obvious flaws, repairs, signs of wear noted - but is still serviceable
FAIR: useful as pattern/inspiration or repurposing


Sizing through the eras has changed dramatically, and even today can vary from designer to designer. While we do provide the label size of the garment if available, we still strongly recommend a careful comparison of the provided measurements with something similar you already own.

For your convenience we provide an approximate MODERN SIZE GUIDE of XXS - XXL:

XXS: 22"-23" waist / modern size 0
XS: 24" waist / modern size 2
S: 25"-27" waist / modern size 4-6
M: 28"-30" waist / modern size 8-10
L: 31"-32" waist / modern size 12
XL: 33"-34" waist / modern size 14
XXL: 35"-37" waist / modern size 16

Currently the items in our shop are being photographed on a mannequin with the following measurements:

BUST: 33"
WAIST: 24"
HIPS: 34"
HEIGHT: 5'-5" in 3" high heels

Garments may be pinned to show proper fit.


We are not big proponents of dry cleaning. That said, we understand there are some garments that really can't be cleaned/pressed properly any other way. We would rather see that environmentally questionable process happen once (on the receiving end) than clean the garment here and then need for it to be cleaned again to restore shape after being shipped - better deal on the price for you, and better deal for the earth! We do however steam most garments (with the exception of silk as the steamer is an obstinate "spitter") prior to shipping, and occasionally hand wash a piece, but one should still be prepared to clean garment upon receipt.

Thank you for shopping at NEST DESIGN STUDIO!
