Our Commitment To Clothes Sizing
We love vintage fashion. We hate sizing clothes. There. We said it, and we’ll say it again!
Do you know what would help? Universal standards that everyone adheres to. Do you know what doesn’t exist? Universal standards that everyone adheres to. And you know who suffers most? You! The lovely people who want to look fly wearing their clothes. Vintage or otherwise.
Since we are a tiny boutique, there’s only so much we can do, but there is no reason for being lazy when it comes to body measurement & clothes sizing. We ignore the size on the label of every garment we sell and measure them as outlined below. And we show all these measurements on our product pages. And if that wasn’t enough, we also include the body measurements, as well as the heights of our models. So, you KNOW what you’re getting!
But you’re not exactly sure how to measure yourself? We’ve got that covered too, because clothes sizing starts with body measurement.
Proper Body Measurement
Proper sizing begins with correct body measurement. So, this is why we provide all our models’ information with every garment that we sell.
If you don’t know your body measurements yet, though, that’s no big deal. All you need is our handy guide below and a tape measure. A second pair of hands may help, but it’s not necessary.
When measuring, make sure the tape measure has the lowest number facing up and not twisted or crooked. Do not apply a lot of pressure with the tape measure because this would compress your body and distort the actual measurement. Also, don’t have it too loose, so there is a lot of slack. Correct body measurement is all about accuracy.
There are no good or bad body measurements, just your measurements. The provided measurements are only there for your convenience.
1BustThe bust is the widest part of your chest. To correctly measure it, you put the tape measure around your chest, over your breasts. Your bust size is the place where both ends of your tape measure meet. Though be sure not to apply too much pressure with the tape measure, as this may distort your actual size. Importantly, you need to wear your bra for a correct measurement. If you wear one in your day-to-day life. However, make sure it’s not one that boosts your cup size.
2WaistThe waist is the narrowest part of your torso before your body transitions into the hips. Wrap the tape measure around your waist tightly enough where there is no slack, but not applying pressure onto your body.
3HipsThe hips are the widest part of your body below the waist. Wrap the tape measure around your hips and take the number of where both ends meet.
Clothes Measuring Guides
Similarly to our body measurement guide, all you need to measure your clothes is a simple tape measure.
