Sizing

 

Sizing chart

1/OFF pieces are vintage items and can vary from the standardized clothing sizes of today. Our garment measurements are taken in cm with the item laid flat. As it is essential that you know your measurements, please see below our top tips for getting your particulars right.

For topwear, the garment measurement is likely to be bigger than your actual body measurement as many garments are not designed to fit tightly to your body.  

For bottomwear we measure the waistband all the way around. This should match your actual waist measurement.

Measurement

We suggest you measure yourself to find out your size:

Top wear:

Shoulders:  Pull the tape from one extremity of your shoulders to the other to have a measurement. You can also do it on a garment you already own and that fits you. 

Chest: Wrap the tape around the widest part of your chest/bust. This is usually just under the armpit. Measure all the way around in cm. 

Fit: The garment will probably measure more than your chest measurement.  

  • 2 centimeters more than your body size: it will fit quite tightly.
  • 8 centimeters more than your body size: it will fit loose

Alternatively, find a topwear garment you own which has a fit you like. Lay it flat and measure straight across just under the armpit. Double this amount to get the full measurement. If the garment you want to buy has the same measurement, it will fit you in a similar way.

Waist: Wrap the tape around your body, above the hipbone where you would tight your top. 

Fit: The garment will probably measure the same as your waist measurement. 

  • Up to 2 centimeters more than your body size: it will fit true to size, maybe a bit tight depending on the design. 
  • Up to more than 2 centimeters: it will a little loose, depending on the design.

Alternatively, find a topwear garment you own which has a fit you like. Lay it flat and measure halfway on the length. Double this amount to get the full measurement. If the garment you want to buy has the same measurement, it will fit you in a similar way.

Length: According to our measurements, pull the tape from your neck base to where it falls so you can get an idea of the length.

Bottomwear:

Waist: Wrap the tape around your body at the point at which you normally wear your jeans or trousers. The garment you want to buy should have the same waist measurement.

Alternatively, find a bottomwear garment you own which fits you well. Lay it flat and measure straight across the top. Double this amount to get the full waist measurement. The garment you want to buy should have the same waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the tape around your hipbone without tightening it. If the garment you want to buy has the same measurement then it will fit true to size. 

Alternatively, if you want a similar fit than one of your own garment, measure the hip circumference to know your size.

Length: Pull the tape from the top of the inseam to the bottom of the leg. 

Alternatively, mesure the inseam of one of your existing garment to get a similar length.
