When is a size 12 not a size 12? When it‘s vintage.

Today’s sizes have very little correlation to clothing size labels from past decades.   Over the past 20+ years designers and manufacturers have fed our egos by making standard size numbers smaller and smaller. Back in the 1960s there was no size 0.  The smallest size was a 6. Plus today’s men and women are fitter, taller and have much more muscle tone of than people of earlier eras. Even today‘s undergarments make a difference. Today’s woman isn’t corseted, girdled or wearing a stiff bra. So even the thinnest of people sometimes have trouble with vintage sizing.

 

When shopping for vintage clothing at MadgesHatbox look at the “measured flat” sizing in each vintage clothing listing.  This means the garment was lying on a table and measurements were taken from side-to-side. To compare, pull a like piece from your own closet. Place it flat on a table and measure across the front at the shoulders, bust, waist and hips. The bust measurement is taken directly under the armpit. It’s also a good idea to measure your sleeve length from the end of the shoulder to the wrist.

 

Keep these measurements handy and to be safe sure you are buying from a reputable shop like MadgesHatbox that accepts returns. If you have specific questions send us an email or give us a call at 404 850-1757 and we are happy to help.  You can read our complete return policy here.
