Sizing & Condition
When shopping for vintage pieces online, it’s best to consider the garment's actual measurements rather than the listed tag size. Just as styles have changed over time, sizing has too.
To better assist you, we carefully measure each piece and provide a suggested modern fit equivalent. Please keep in mind that clothing shown on models may be pinned to show proper fit. For accurate sizing, you can either measure yourself or measure a similar garment that you already own.
MEASURING THE GARMENT
All our measurements are taken in inches with the garment lying flat. Bust, waist, and hip measurements are then doubled. If an item has ample stretch, we provide the measurement range (from flat to comfortably stretched). When the modern fit is listed as “one size fits most,” it means that the garment is roomy and will fit a range of sizes, depending on the desired fit and overall look.
Shoulder: From shoulder seam to shoulder seam.
Sleeve Length: From shoulder seam to sleeve cuff.
Bust: From one armpit to the other, then doubled.
Waist: Across the smallest point of the waist, then doubled.
Hips: Across the fullest part of the hips, then doubled.
Length: From the top of the garment to the hem.
Inseam: The entire length of the inner leg, from crotch seam to hem.
Rise: The waist to the crotch seam.
We suggest measuring yourself using a soft garment measuring tape and then adding an inch or two to ensure proper fit.
Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your bust.
Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist, directly above the belly button and below the ribcage.
Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips, standing with your feet close together.
It can be assumed that most vintage pieces have been previously loved and may have some minor signs wear. We do our best to thoroughly inspect every piece and note any flaws or imperfections in the item description.
