SIZE GUIDE




Vintage clothing sizes can vary from standardising sizing today. Therefore we provide detailed measurements to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly.
Within our description we will mention the original garment tag (if the item has one) and recommend the modern UK size. However this is just an estimate so please refer to the measurements listed to best determine the fit.
HOW WE MEASURE
Length - top of neckline to hem of item (top of strap on dresses)
Chest - pit to pit - armpit to armpit - laid flat
Bust - pit to pit - armpit to armpit - laid flat
Sleeve Length - shoulder seam to cuff edge
Waist - smallest part of the waist - laid flat
Leg Length Inseam - crotch seam to ankle
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about sizing at info@searchanddestroy.uk.com - we would prefer you to double check than return.

 

All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and provided in inches, if you are un-sure of your size why not compare it to an item you love the fit of already that you have at home.

Please double the flat measurements if you require the circumference of chest-bust and waist.
