How do I know if an item will fit?

Many vintage items come to us without labels or with outdated sizing information, that’s why we measure every garment specifically. These dimensions are provided in the description section for each item. Dimensions given are in inches and are taken flat across the garment (if you are measuring, make sure to double all bust, waist and hip measurements). The listed measurements do not include any stretch the fabric might have- a lot of vintage fabrics tend not to have any give. To best assess your fit, choose a garment that fits you well. Lay the item flat and measure across the front in specific areas (read measuring). Please note: measuring your body directly may provide misleading measurements.
