SIZING

We want to make sure you have the best experience with your Vintage Recovery purchases! Our clothing is all vintage pre-loved or reworked, which means it might not match today's standard sizing. But don't worry, we've got you covered. We take the time to measure by hand each garment and provide those measurements in both inches and centimetres, with the item laid flat. You can find these measurements listed on each product page.

To make sure your retro goodies fit you like a charm when they arrive, we've included some helpful tips below on how to take your own measurements accurately. And remember, vintage sizing labels can be quite different from today's standards, so don't let that throw you off – your perfect fit might just be waiting for you!
