Vintage means pre-loved and in most cases pre-worn. The antique and vintage clothing that we sell here at Adored Vintage has a story and has had another life before it reaches you. It is important to note that most vintage clothing will show small signs of wear and some pieces will display noticeable wear which will be noted in the listing.


We recommend hand washing or dry cleaning vintage clothing

How To Measure Yourself

BUST: Pass tape measure around body over fullest part of bust. Do not pull tape too tightly and be sure it doesn't slip in the back.

WAIST: Pass tape measure around smaller part of your waist.

HIPS: Take measurement approximate 7" below your natural waistline (smallest part of your waist)
