All garments are measured laying flat.
Bust is measured armpit to armpit.
Waist is measured from the smallest part of waist or the midsection for tshirts.
Length is measured from the back neck hem down to the longest bottom point.
No returns. Most items are previously worn as they are vintage pieces. We make sure to carefully describe the condition and exact measurements of each piece to assure you of what you're buying ahead of time.
If you would like to exchange a pre-ordered item for a different size, please send us an email and we will help as best as we can to ensure that you're happy. With pre-order exchanges, we often require re-shipping postal charges to be covered by customer.
All US orders are shipped Priority Mail or First Class. Orders are generally shipped within 3-5 business days, but we are a small company with only the 3 of us gals doing (quite literally) everything, so occasionally things will be shipped out a day or two after that.
If you got a shipping confirmation email with you tracking number, this does not mean your package has been shipped right then. It means we have created your shipping label, and are working on getting your package ready to hand off to the post office.
We ship internationally as well, with the default being first class shipping. Please message us before you place an order if you will require any expedited shipping and live outside of the USA.
If your order contains more than one item, you may get more than one package for that order (lucky!). Individually, the 3 of us keep our vintage pieces safely stored in 3 separate locations, which means orders of 2 or more things may be held at in different areas, and can cause shipping to take slightly longer, and as stated above, items will often be sent in multiple shipments.
We each carry our own collection of vintage and/or handmade items on Backbite, so if you want to know who you're ordering from or have questions on specific items, visit our "About" link at the top of our site. There, you can find the specially selected pieces each store owner has in their individual collection by simply clicking on her photo.
