This is too small for me, so it's headed back to VintageVixen, and I have to say, if you have your eye on it, buy it! It's in absolutely pristine condition and it's truly a great suit. I'm consistently a 12 in modern sizes; I think it this fits more like a modern 8. (But I had to try, because... look at how great it is!)

Exactly as described, shipped quickly and was well packaged for the journey. It has obviously never been worn as it's in mint condition! Can't wait to wear it.

About

In 1997, VintageVixen.com pioneered the online vintage clothing industry. Almost two decades later, we're in good company - yours!

As a teenager, I worked in one of the oldest vintage clothing shops in the country. That store started back in the 60s, and as their seamstress in the mid-1990s I reveled in my work. Repairing long-forgotten dresses and perfecting the imperfect was my joy. Soon after, I realized that this futuristic anomaly known as the World Wide Web was going to be a real place with real commerce. I started VintageVixen.com in March 1997 with 40 items and a few hundred dollars. Seventeen years and over 40,000 items later, we are still a mainstay for vintage clothing online. And I still love discovering beautiful clothes for all you Vixens.

We also sell seasonally at reprized.etsy.com.

Sizing Details

Items are in US sizes. We list modern sizes in titles and in the Size heading. We list vintage sizes in the Label heading.

To get a modern size from a vintage garment, we take actual bust, waist, and hip measurements and translate that to a modern size equivalent. Inches are standard, even though sizes between different companies and eras aren't.

All measurements listed for bust, waist, and hip are the maximum body measurements that will fit the item. These measurements already have ease subtracted and they are not actual fabric widths. To get actual fabric widths add 2 inches at the bust, 1 inch at the waist, and 2 inches at the hip.

Care & Storage Info

All our Etsy.com items are carefully stored in our climate-controlled warehouse, and all are quickly accessible when you have questions about a particular piece. While we maintain a scrupulously clean workplace, we do have a shop cat, and we want you to know that vintage items may have come in contact with dander, mold, dust and other environmental elements.

We prepare your garments as meticulously as we would for ourselves, but please know that vintage clothing has a past, and we may be unaware of allergic traces that sensitive individuals could find problematic.

Items are sold as collectibles. We cannot make claims, warranties or guarantees about fitness for a particular use, durability, etc. Children's items are display only.
