Due to the nature of the merchandise, we ensure that our cataloguing is as accurate and honest as possible. Each garment for sale will have a detailed condition report noting and faults or visible wear. 

Due to the nature of our business we only lightly steam our garments, all are in clean condition, with some having been previously dry-cleaned however we do recommend that you consult a specialist dry-cleaners upon purchase. 

Each garment is sold as seen on screen, we provide a number of pictures and a detailed description for each item but should you want any additional imagery/further information we are always happy to help. 

We catalogue as follows:

PRE-LOVED - Vintage and pre-owned, may have some signs of wear and/or damage

NEW W/WO TAGS - Store fresh, unworn condition

PERFECTLY IMPERFECT W/WO TAGS - Unworn, may have some signs of wear and/or damage

SAMPLE - Designer sample, may have some signs of wear and or damage



Our mannequin is a UK size 4 - 6 for reference, and approximately 5ft 11" in height.

Please note that due to the nature of vintage clothing and the changes of commercial sizing over the years, vintage sizes are often not true to modern day designers and brands's sizing. Therefore we take our own full measurements, and equate these to present day commercial sizing. For this reason, our listed size will most likely differ from the original size shown on the label of a garment. Please note all measurements are approximations.

We carefully inspect each garment for flaws, faults and imperfections and stains, then fully measure hips, bust (pit to pit) and length (top of shoulders to end of garment or leg length if it is a trouser suit or jumpsuit).

We then photograph the garment stylised on mannequin, provide and measure each item against a modern day sizing label to try and get a more accurate idea of size. 

Another note about bridal gown sizing is that due to the unique construction, it may be different than your 'street' size. It is entirely normal to size up one or two sizes then your street size.
