I don’t know why I didn’t get around to it sooner. I’m always being asked by customers how to measure for the best fit so they don’t have to exchange items. I put all the measurements in my listings, but it’s hard to figure out what to do with them. So, what I did was make up a chart and set it up in the last image spot in my listings! This is the way I always used to check fit and size when I was buying vintage clothing online.
Here’s what you do:
1) Take the measurements provided to you in the listing, they are usually of the garment lying flat. Measurements can be doubled if you want the full around measurements.
2) Grab a similar garment at home you like the fit of. Lay it on the ground and measure. If the measurements in the listing are the same or similar/close enough then you know it will fit!
