Sizing and Measurements

Vintage sizing and modern sizing can be very different. Because of this, detailed measurement of all vintage clothing is provided to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly.

All bust, waist, and hip measurements are taken straight across while garment is laid flat and the measure is duplicated. Please compare measurements to a garment you already own that fits you well to have a better idea of fit.


Shoulders: Shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Bust: Armpit to armpit, and sometimes stretched for strapless or form-fitting pieces
Waist: Measured at the smallest part of the waist
Hip: Measured at the largest part of the hip, straight across
Sleeves: Shoulder seam to cuff.
Length: Top of garment, from shoulder seam to hem
Rise (for pants): Hold the tape at the center back of your waist. Run the tape between your legs, pulling comfortably at the crotch, and up to yournatural waist in front. The total measurement is your rise.
Inseam (for pants): Taken from crotch seam to ankle


Length: Sole of shoe, from toe to heel, measured along sole
Width: Measured at widest part of the sole of the shoe, typically at ball of foot
Height (for boots): From bottom of shoes (including heels) to top
Heel: Taken at the very back of shoe, from floor to top of heel

Please pay close attention to measurements given for each garment.
Estimated sizes are meant only as a guideline.
