Returns Policy


Please choose carefully as we do not offer returns or exchanges on items purchased. Ready to wear gowns are non refundable for change of mind purchases. We also have a ‘no refund’ policy on 50% holding deposits made.

We carefully detail product descriptions on each garment and are happy to provide specific measurements if needed.

We will specify any imperfections or repairs needed to vintage items in the product description, however please note that due to the aged nature of vintage clothing this should be factored into your purchase.

We will happily recommend and refer you to a bridal alteration specialist in the Sydney-wide area should you need any modifications to your purchase.

Please read the vintage sizing information below to ensure your item is a successful fit for you. If you are still uncertain about the sizing or fit of an item please contact us directly and we will happily provide you with additional photos or information.

We highly recommend measuring yourself with dressmaker’s measuring tape prior to purchasing.

Please note that vintage garments are a significantly different fit than clothing made today. Modern clothing is generally cut larger to cater to a wider range of women and sizing, while vintage clothing is cut much more tailored and closer to the figure. Therefore extra care is needed when wearing vintage clothing given the nature of the aged fabric and more tailored construction of the garment.
