SIZE GUIDE - Cult of Aphrodite Vintage

SIZE GUIDE

Vintage clothing sizes can vary from standard sizing today. Therefore we provide detailed  measurements to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly. Within our  description we will mentioned the garment tag, if any, and a recommended modern UK size.  However this is just an estimate so please refer to the measurements to best determine fit.

We do not accept returns for items that do not fit. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about sizing.

All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and provided in inches. Please double these measurements if you require the circumference of chest and waist: 

  • Shoulder: shoulder seam to shoulder seam, taken from  back      
  • Sleeve: top of shoulder down outer sleeve to cuff
  • Bust: armpit to armpit taken from front, then doubled
  • Waist: seam to seam at narrowest point of garment
  • Hip: seam to seam at widest point of garment
  • Total Length: from top of shoulder to hem

To determine the approximate size of an item, please refer to the measurements provided in this chart. Please keep in mind that approximate sizes are just estimates. Every vintage dresser knows the importance of knowing your measurements. We think this is a very good idea and saves you the heartache of stumbling upon what would be the perfect dress but either too small or big.
