How does sizing work?
Each of our product listings includes a marked size and further sizing advice. We also include product measurements on most of our listings, if these are missing and you require them please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. The marked size comes from the label on the garment and should only be used if you are familiar with other items from that brand, and from the same time period.
In the case that we list a range of sizes, we estimate that it will fit anyone within that range, but with a different look, e.g. if an item is marked UK 6-10 it will have an oversized look for smaller sizes and a form-fitting look for larger sizes. We find that some items we come across can be worn by a range of sizes and body types. If you have any queries about the sizing of a garment we are happy to give further information, simply email us at email@example.com
Measurements are the most accurate tool for understanding the size of an item. Details of how we take various measurements are listed below. We recommend you check these if you are unsure about how an item will fit.
Bust: Measured flat across the fullest part of the bust, right below the underarms and then doubled.
Waist: Measured flat across the slimmest part of the natural waistline, above the navel and below the ribcage, and then doubled.
Hip: Measured flat across the fullest area below the waist, and then doubled.
Length: Measured flat from high shoulder seam to the longest part of the hem.
