    Melbourne based OnceWas is committed to designing quality, timeless pieces made from sustainable fabrications. Cupro and Viscose are two of our main fabrics that we use across the majority of our designs. They are lightweight, breathable fabrics that drape beautifully against the body and are a more durable alternative to silk.

    Designing clothing that makes women feel confident and comfortable is what underpins our designs. Creating investment pieces that can be cherished parts of our customers wardrobes and worn season after season embodies our commitment to sustainability.

    Want to know more? We understand how tricky online shopping can be...... and what looks great on a size 4, 10 foot amazon lady model doesn’t always convert to real bodies. So what we can offer are some real bodies.  We are a small team of mums and a token hot grandma and range from size 6 - 22.

    If you're second guessing a fit, one of us will be in your size range and can try it on and send you photos. Let us know what you are looking for in a garment and we can give you direction with cuts and styling to best suit your needs.

    Not sure? We don’t want you to be left with anything you don’t 100% love, live in and rave to your friends about. So if it’s not quite right send it back. We will look after you and offer quick exchanges or full refunds for all online purchases. Happy customers mean the world to us. 

    The struggle: We understand that everybody’s different and we get the battles that go along with finding longer length sleeves and pants for tall ladies. On the shorter side we understand how it is trying to find tops that aren’t too long. We know these struggles well; let us do the ground work for you by providing some curated options for your needs. This is our thing and we love doing it! Please reach out and get in touch, we would love to provide you with real and customised service to save you time and meet your needs.
