SIZE GUIDE

Need some help figuring out if something will fit? Feel free to contact us. We're always happy to assist.

VINTAGE SIZING

Since sizing has changed over time, the original size tag of a vintage garment is often an unreliable way to determine fit. That's why we we assign a modern size to each item instead. To determine your size, use your body measurements to find your size range on the chart below:

SIZE  BUST  WAIST HIPS
 XS (0-2)   28-32"   23-26"  32-34"
 S (4-6)   32-34"   26-27"  34-37"
 M (8-10)   35-38"   27-29"  38-40"
 L (10-12)   38-40"   30-33"  40-43"
 XL (14-16)    41"+   34"+  44"+
If you don't know your exact measurements it's easy to take them: just measure around the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra (if you normally wear one), measure around the narrowest part of your waist (usually right around your belly button), and measure around the fullest part of your hips (the largest measurement around your seat or the top of your thighs). Do this with only undergarments on and pull the tape measure snug. 

 

GARMENT MEASUREMENTS

Garment measurements are provided in the description for each individual item. Use these measurements (as well as your own measurements) to get the best idea of how something would fit. Remember that garment measurements refer to the item itself, so they should be slightly larger than your body measurements to allow for comfort, flexibility and movement. We recommend comparing the garment measurements with a similar item you already own for reference. Garment measurements are listed in full. They are taken with the item lying flat, from seam to seam, and then doubled for circumference where appropriate. We measure clothing as follows:

BUST: across chest just below the armpit
WAIST: across smallest part of midsection (tops, dresses) or across back waistband (pants, skirts)
HIPS: across fullest part of hips (about 8-10" below waist)
SHOULDERS: one shoulder seam to the other
SLEEVE: top shoulder seam to cuff
LENGTH: top of garment to hem at longest point
RISE: center crotch seam to top of front waistband
INSEAM: center crotch seam to hem along inner leg

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

We recommend following the instructions on the original sewn-in care tag of your vintage garment. Sometimes a care tag isn't present, so please contact us if you're uncertain- we're happy to provide specific care recommendations for any item upon request.

VINTAGE CONDITION

We're highly selective when it comes to the quality and condition of our vintage garments. That said, all items are vintage (at least 20 years old) and may show signs of age and wear. Any notable flaws will be disclosed in the item description. If no specific condition notes are listed you can assume the item is free of any stains, holes or other damage. Minor imperfections from normal wear add to the unique character of vintage clothing and may not always be noted. All items have been washed with unscented natural detergent or steam cleaned, depending on fabric specifications.
