ABOUT VINTAGE CLOTHING SIZES
Vintage clothing sizes run smaller than modern clothing sizes and there is no industry standard sizing chart for modern women's clothing. When purchasing vintage clothes, it is important to know your own true body measurements and compare those to the garment measurements provided. Please take a moment to review this chart on how to take your own body measurements, so you can correctly determine if this item will fit you. Be sure to always leave several inches between your measurements and the garment measurement for proper fit and ease of movement. Returns due to improper fit will not be approved.
