 As vintage sizing usually varies from item to item, actual measurements can be the most accurate way to determine sizing & fit. We hand measure all our garments. Measurements are taken in inches, with the garment laying flat and then doubled where appropriate for correct sizing (i.e. for waist & bust).

For best fit, we recommend checking measurements of your best fitting garment or your own body. Please get in touch if you have any enquiries regarding measurements or fit.
