Getting sizing right with vintage clothing is tricky. What was a size 14 in 1960 can now be considered a size 10 or depending on the manufacturer.
I have done my very best to sort my vintage clothing into modern clothing size categories. To help with this, where possible I’ve measured items in standard places such as hips, waist, bust/chest, under arms, arm and leg lengths and added these measurements to the item’s description.
I’ve also tried to sort vintage clothing into categories where I feel that the cut and sizing of an item means it can be worn by a person of any gender. Because don’t we all deserve to wear whatever we want if we can fit into it?
Please look at the sizing information available for each item and check your measurements before purchasing or renting. Where I have been able to find original sizing charts, I have added them into the product description.
Using Vintage Sporting Equipment
Our vintage sports equipment is sold as decorative items only and should not be used for any other purpose. I Dream of Snow accepts no liability or responsibility for the use of decorative items that the purchaser chooses to use for any sporting or recreational purposes.
All the vintage items I Dream of Snow stock have been checked and cleaned before offering them to the purchaser for sale. Any damage has been noted and is identified in the product details before making available for sale.
Wearing Vintage Clothing
All the vintage clothing items I stock have been checked and cleaned before offering them to you for purchase or rent. Any damage has been noted and is identified in the product details before making available for purchase/rent.
Please be aware that the waterproofing and warmth of many vintage garments is vastly inferior to what is available now to modern consumers. Please keep in mind that if you wear, for example, a 1970’s snow suit in your average Australian snow conditions, it may not keep you as warm and dry as a modern brand-new snowsuit.
Why offer repaired Vintage items for sale or hire?
In line with my 'reuse, repair, recycle and reinvent’ philosophy I sometimes stock items that have been damaged and repaired, or reinvented because sometimes the item is a unique piece, reflective of the time and place of its creation…and I’ve fallen in love with it!
Consequently, I’ve weight up the advantages and disadvantages of cleaning and repairing an item and then offering the item for purchase or rent and concluded that you the consumer can decide if the item is right for you.
I get it. Sometimes you buy an item, and it just isn’t right, especially when shopping online. Getting sizing right with vintage clothing is tricky, so please look at the sizing guide and check your measurements before purchasing or renting.
