Vintage Sizing

How We Measure and Define Item Conditions

How we measure

All items are measured in inches ("/inch) and/or centimetres (cm).

We measure Length (longest part), Height (tallest part) and Width (widest part), for Bags, Shoes and Boots (please look below for exactly how we measure).

We measure Length (tallest part), Bust (Chest), Waist, Hips, Neck and Shoulder Width for varying garments.

We also measure the inside (insole) of shoes and boots in millimetres (mm), so that you can measure your feet to ensure you are choosing the right size.


Garment Measurements

Actual measurements of the Garment measured by us, in inches. 

We approximately estimate the sizing of the garment, please look to your right to see our charts.

Please keep in mind that Vintage sizing can vary from today's sizing.

Even though we are trying very hard to give you the actual size, please always remember to compare your personal body measurements with our garment measurements provided to make sure the item fits properly.

Please do pay careful attention of chest/bust measurements as this is the part that can vary with vintage garments.
