* Vintage = 20+ years in age, and in most cases previously loved. Light general wear and minor imperfections consistent with age are normal.
* Tag sizes vary from brand to brand + era to era. We list estimated modern sizes to help compensate, but tag size variation is true to this day.
* To determine if item will fit, we recommend measuring a similar garment of your own. We also recommend knowing your measurements prior to purchase.
* All measurements are listed in inches. 1 inch = 2.54cm.
* To display ideal fit, items larger than dress form or model are often clipped in back for photos.
