VINTAGE CLOTHING - HOW WE MEASURE - HOW WE SIZE

Vintage clothing is not like modern clothing, unlike modern fabrics most Vintage fabrics are not stretchy.

To avoid disappointment and receive an item that does not fit, take a few minutes to check your measurements, once you have measured your body and checked the measurements in the chart below, you will have your vintage clothing size for items we sell, do not worry if you find it is a different size from the size you buy from modern retailers.

Regardless of the size shown in the Vintage Garment (if any) we measure it in inches and then size the garment as listed in the table below. So to avoid disappointment compare your personal body measurements with our garment measurements to make sure the item fits properly. We will always try and give you some idea of the fabric composition and advice you if it does have some stretch.

MEASURE YOUR BODY, FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES BELOW

Take a tape measure or use a piece of string and measure against a ruler, make a note of the following measurements.

Ladies
Bust – Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your bust
