Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Made by Roxanne.

Tag size is a vintage "16 or 38 B" but this definitely measures smaller than a 38 inch bust. Please refer to measurements taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate. The romper is shown on a vintage dress form that is similar to a modern size 4 and it would not zip up all the way in the back but still had a little room in the cups.
Bust across center of boning at front and along top edge of back: 32 inches with darts (81.28 cm) - Note this is not stretched. There is perhaps 1 to 1.5 inches more if stretched. The elastic is still very sturdy and not stretched out at all.
Waist at seam: 30 inches (76.2 cm)
Hips: 40 inches (101.6 cm)
Length from top of bust point to waist seam (not including straps): 11 inches (27.94 cm)
