We try to describe the condition of vintage clothing as accurate as possible. In the info table of each product we explain what we think is the condition. More info about the conditions:
⟹ perfect vintage condition, new with tags: a (usually deadstock) item has its original tags or packaging and no signs of wear, but might have some signs of aging.
⟹ very good vintage condition, slight/some signs of wear: the item is not new, but the signs of wear are very subtle.
⟹ good vintage condition, some signs of wear: the item is used and has some signs of wear that are also mentioned in the description, but we still think it’s a stunning piece anyway.
⟹ okay vintage condition, some signs of wear: signs of wear that are noticable but can sometimes be repaired. flaws are explained. we lower the price due to the condition.
Sizes of vintage clothing are mostly confusing and 99% of time totally random.
Just because a certain piece of clothing on here isn’t your size, you shouldn’t fall into despair. There’s hope!
As we said, random as hell. Means there is always still a chance that a piece that is 10 sizes smaller than your actual size fits you perfectly.
We think the easiest solution is to write down what we think is the actual size of the piece and just ignore what’s written on the tags.
If you’re still insecure, just write us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org including the link to the item of which you need more info.
We will try to respond to you within 24 hours with exact measurements.
Bra Sizing: Bras can be measured in their actual size as well as Sister sizes. Sister sizes are groups of sizes equivalent to the actual size of the bra. That means – for example – a 75B is the same as a 70C and a 80A. The secret is simple: if you go one cup sizes smaller, go one band size up. If you go one size up, go one band size down.
In the end, it’s simple: one size usually fits more than just one size.
Since vintage clothing is already more sustainable on its own, it’s part of our vision to make it last even longer. We recommend treating your pieces like the babies they are. That means to store them in a dry place with no direct sunlight (since it can make the colors fade!) and, if possible, put it on hangers.
∙ washing your vintage clothing is a risky thing: since the material is very old, you never know how it will react being washed in your washing machine.
∙ we highly recommend hand-washing your babies at less than 30°C or cold with a mild soap for best results.
∙ air-dry your clothing. tumble drying is not only bad for the environment, but might also destroy your clothing.
∙ if you spill coffee, paint or photos from your 7th grade emo phase over your clothing, only spot-wash them.
∙ items made out of a special material such as silk or embroidered materials need special care. consider not washing them at all or have it cleaned professionally.
∙ if you wish to iron it, always iron at the lowest heat. we would recommend to rather hang it wet on a hanger and let it dry though.
all of the pieces reach you nice and fresh and ready to wear!
