How to care for your vintage dresses

Owning vintage dresses is a great option. You are able to own pieces which are unique, flattering and most of all fashionable. But the advantages don’t stop there! Most of the time, due to their “used” label, vintage dresses are often less expensive than newer apparel and can be a thrifty way to achieve a lot of bang for your buck.  

However, there can be some challenges when it comes to caring for vintage clothing, dresses included. Often times, the fabric is more fragile and can stain, rip or wear easily. There is also the concern of being able to wear your favourite vintage pieces without having to worry about decreasing their value or condition. With this being said, there are some easy, effortless things you can do to ensure the longevity and durability of your most-loved vintage dresses.

For example, when it is time to clean and wash your most worn vintage dresses, consider only using professional dry cleaner services. Dry cleaning in general is a more gentle way to wash clothing and it is the preferred option when it comes to vintage duds. Ask around town for a referral; even though dry cleaning is generally a safe option you will still want to have an idea of the quality of services provided.  

Another great way to ensure that your vintage dresses are able to last another life time is to use garment bags regularly. It is quite common for some damage to be done while the clothes are simply hanging in your closet. Fabrics can get snagged on the zippers or tags of other clothing, vintage pieces can be dropped from their hanger and stained while bundled in with other clothes and vintage dresses can be shuffled into losing their shape. By investing in some plastic or cloth garment bags you can keep your vintage pieces separate from your every day clothing and can avoid any potential damage. 

And finally, one of the easiest yet most important points to remember when caring for vintage dresses; avoid contact with harmful alcohols, sprays and cleaners. This means, while getting ready for your big night on the town, spray your hair and perfume before getting dressed into your vintage stunner! The chemicals and alcohols in products such as perfume and hairspray can stain and weaken fabric easily and the damage done is very often irreversible.  

If you enjoy vintage dresses remember the points mentioned above. By taking some time, investing a small amount of money and avoiding certain behaviours, you can easily lengthen the life of all of your vintage pieces.
