What Does Gently Used Clothing Mean on Fashmates?

Fashmates was created for fashionistas like you who want to update their closet with new and exciting clothes, and make money selling their unwanted pre-loved fashion items and clothing at the same time.

Here and on other sites we often hear the term “gently used” so today I thought I would explain exactly what that meant.

Gently Used Clothing

If a garment or a pair of shoes is “gently used” then it has been born two or three times.

It has no wear marks, pilling, scuffs or stains anywhere on it.

Other terms used instead of “gently used” are “pre-loved” and “near new”.

Keep these terms in mind when choosing what you want to sell on Fashmates.

List Any Defects or Flaws

Make sure you include anything that might be wrong with the item.

This includes any mends the garment has undergone, as well as, tears or rips or stains it might have.

Make a note in the description of any other aspects of the item which might cause a customer to return it. Perhaps it is labeled a size 8 and it is a small fit, better suited to someone who is a size 6, for example.

Make sure you take a picture of the flaw and point it out, no matter how small.

At Fashmates we believe that honesty is the best policy, and by following this principal your rating and sales will remain high.

If you have clothes which are badly worn throw them away, it is not worth the hassle.
