How to measure vintage garments?

As you may know, sizing labels on vintage garments and standardized clothing measurements have changed over the decades and vary between countries and brands, so we have outlined our measuring and size estimating process.

The best way to know if a vintage item will fit you is to take a similar garment that fits you well and measure it the way we measure ours 🫶

All product measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.


For example, CHEST (BUST) - under arm to under arm across the front and then double that measurement (ex. 48 cm * 2 = 94 cm max bust).

Note: our size description of an item is advisory. Please refer to measurements for a more accurate idea of size and fit.
Also, remember to allow yourself some extra room for movement 😊
