All garments are measured flat.
The sizing fit (xs-2, sm-4, m-6, l-8, xl-10, plus) is given as an estimate based on the measurements we take, to help buyers get an idea. These are estimates only please refer to the garment measurements for better details when selecting an item.
Our garments are shown on an adjustable vintage dress form, we try to never clip items, but sometimes it is necessary to give the proper feel of the item.
