Sustained Release delights in bringing you the buried treasures of vintage fashion.

All garments are measured on a flat surface, and waist and bust sizes are measured from hip to hip and pit to pit etc, then doubled. If you are concerned about sizing, then try measuring a favorite garment (with the perfect fit!) to find your measurements.

All shoes are measured as follows:
Insole: measured from the tip of the toe to the heel on the inside of the foot.
Ball: Measured on the widest portion of the shoe below the toes.
Heel: Measured from the tallest part of the heel.
Height: The total height of the shoe at its tallest point.
Calf: The circumference of the widest part of the shaft of the shoe or boot.
