Of Note

  • What a silhouette! This is a very flattering style for those with an hourglass figure.
  • There is one minor flaw less, than 1/2" in size, on the back of the right sleeve near the elbow area. Please see the image below for a closure look. Although this is technically a blemish, I have still listed the dress in Excellent condition, as it is otherwise in fantastic shape.
  • Depending on the exact shape of the wearer, some stitches may appear more exposed than others along the bodice, but the dress is structurally sound.
  • I'm not a big bra wearer myself (the blessing of a small bust, I suppose), but I highly recommend wearing one with this dress and using the included bra snaps. Otherwise, it will likely fall down the shoulders.

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears. 

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your next new-favorite vintage item. 

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.).
