Daggers & Dames on Etsy!

Daggers & Dames sells vintage lingerie and lounge wear from the 1920's through the 1980’s. I’m passionate about the details and quality that can only be found in vintage underthings, and love sharing these beauties and their features with you.

Foundation pieces are a must for many vintage lovers as it forms to the particular clothing shape of the era, giving your outerwear an authentic fit. The craftsmanship and stability of elder styles cannot be beat and the amount of effort gone into making each piece ‘pop’ in its own special way is worth admiration. Vintage underthings offer a bit of glamour to your wardrobe making you feel just as special as the pieces you are wearing, as intended in the previous decades where dressing was an art, not just a routine.

Enjoy the relics and thank you for visiting,

Daggers & Dames

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All measurements are diligently listed. My measurements are taken relaxed without stressing the fabrics. I suggest that you invest in a soft measuring tape so that you take your own measurements and compare listed measurements to yours or items that fit you nicely. I always recommend to allow at least 1 inch for mobility, as these fabrics can be quite delicate.
If more sizing information is needed please ask!

How does shopping for vintage differ from shopping for brand new, modern clothing?

There is no better feeling than finding and receiving vintage items that are in completely flawless, mint condition to offer fellow lovers of vintage lingerie. I will always inspect the items thoroughly and disclose any and all flaws found as well as price these items accordingly. Because the items offered are 30+ years old, minor flaws and discolorations can generally be expected as most vintage shoppers may already know. Similarly, there may be times where very faint and tiny flaws went unnoticed by me (even after studying every inch).
Please also know that items that have never been worn, even with original tags (dead stock) may still contain minor flaws due to age or storage. Again, any flaws identified by myself will be listed!

Do you clean and sanitize these initmate items before shipping?

I absolutely do if I am confident that I have the capacity to do so without causing damage. I will treat stains and hand wash or dry clean all items post 1930, and select items from earlier decades (such as sturdy items made of cotton or rayon).

Items that are very old or delicate will not be laundered prior to shipment. These would include some silk, crepe, or velvet items. These items may require specialized cleaning, and I do not want to risk damaging them by cleaning them myself.

Deadstock items will also be shipped without laundering so that I do not damage the original tags.

How are orders processed & when can I expect you to ship my items?

All vintage items are inspected one last time prior to packaging.
I ship within 3-5 business days (Monday-Friday) after purchase. Please let me know if you need your order shipped immediately and I will do my very best to accommodate.

Can I request a different method of shipping? What about insurance?

All U.S. orders are shipped either First Class or Priority (if over one pound). If additional insurance is desired, please request it as it is relatively inexpensive.

*Any expedited shipping upgrades may be requested at the buyer's expense.

I will add tracking information for all orders, but please advise that Daggers & Dames is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Unauthorized Returns

Please advise that unauthorized returns will not be accepted. Daggers & Dames will notify you of return and will offer the option of reshipping the item back to you. It will be at your own expense to have an unauthorized return shipped back to you. If no arrangements for reshipment have been made within 14 calendar days of item received, the buyer forfeits all monies paid for the unauthorized return and the item will be relisted.


Layaway is available for items over $100. Please see the terms below:

The first payment must equal at least 25% of the listed price. The 25% will be a deposit and is non-refundable. Invoices will be sent via Paypal, so the buyer must provide an email address and zip code, which will ONLY be used for this purpose. Buyer has 30 calendar days from initial payment to pay for the item in full.

If the item is not paid in full within the above stated time frame the buyer will refunded all amounts paid less the 25% deposit, and the item will be relisted. Please keep open communication if something comes up.

*Sale items, free shipping, and promotions are not applicable to layaway.

Return Exceptions

The buyer must notify me, with photos, within 7 days of delivery for a return request.

Gross misrepresentation includes:
• Inaccurate measurements provided in excess of 1/2 of an inch.
• Excess & visible flaws not mentioned in the conditions of item.

I do not allow returns due to color. Color may vary due to lighting or screens.

I am legally required to accept returns for international orders if requested within 14 days of delivery. The terms & conditions below also apply to returns due to unpaid customs fees:

• Refund will exclude a 15% restocking fee and shipping costs.
• Item MUST be in original, unworn condition.

International Shipping

All international orders over $150 are shipped standard mail at my expense.

*Any expedited shipping upgrades or insurance may be requested at the buyer's expense at checkout.

Buyers are responsible for any and all customs fees. I will never lower the actual value, nor will I ever mark an order as a gift. This is illegal, so please do not ask.

I will add tracking information for all orders.
