How To Measure Yourself For Vintage Clothing

Wondering how to measure yourself for vintage clothing purchases? Follow the guide below to learn how.

Vintage sizing varies from present and modern day sizing. It is important to first figure out your true clothing size according to today's standards. This can be done by measuring yourself in the key areas posted above. Keep these measurements to use as a guide for future vintage shopping.

Most vintage items are much smaller in size than what may be stated on the label...if there is one at all. For such reasons, at Fly Girl Vintage we take the measurements while the garment is laying flat. You just double your measurements and compare to your actual body measurements to ensure a proper fit.
