SIZING/FIT: Vintage is Smaller Than New

Vintage clothing sizing differs significantly from modern day sizing. Please refer to the measurements given in the listing. In general, the garment should be at least 2" greater than your own measurements to allow for ease of movement and depending on how you like an item to fit. To insure best fit possible, compare the given measurements to the measurements of an item in your personal wardrobe.

Below is an approximate guide for sizing purposes.

Frequently asked questions

Will this fit me?

Vintage clothing sizing differs significantly from modern day sizing. That's why it is best to go by the measurements given in the listing and compare these measurements to the measurements of a similar item in your personal wardrobe.

The measurements given in the listing are those of the garment shown, not measurements for body type that the garment will fit. As a rule, you will need to allow for extra room for ease of movement based on your own particular measurements so that the garment fits you comfortably.

Reserving Items

I'd be happy to reserve a listing for you for up to 3 days. Layaway is an option too. Just convo me!

Do you accept offers or give discounts?

I offer discounts for purchases of 4 or more items and offer layaway on items over $100.
