Often, vintage items come to us without labels or with outdated sizing details. To help you best determine fit, we specifically measure the bust, waist, and hip for every One-of-a-Kind and vintage garment sold on ModCloth. Look under the 'Measurements' tab to find this info!

How to Measure a Garment

Choose a garment that you already own and that fits you well. Then, lay it flat and measure across the front. Compare your findings with your desired vintage item's measurements.

Inseam
Measure the entire length of the inner leg, from top to ankle.

Bust
Measure flat across the garment's front, just under the arms.

Waist
Measure the narrowest part of the garment. For pants and skirts: Measure the top of the garment.

Hips
Measure the widest part
of a garment (below the waistline).

Length
For dresses & tops: Measure from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the garment. For pants & skirts: Measure from the waist to the bottom of the garment.

  • Bust

    Wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your breasts, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This measurement determines your bust size.

  • Waist

    Wrap a measuring tape around your natural waistline, making sure to keep the tape parellel to the ground. This determines your waist measurement.

  • Hips

    Wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your hip measurement.

  • It's all in the 'Details.' If we find that an item requires additional sizing info, we'll provide it in that item's 'Details' tab. You can find other descriptive data - like composition, stretch, and washing instructions - there, too!

  • Peruse the reviews! See what others have to say about the items you love. You can peep pics and read reviews left by fellow shoppers with similar measurements to find out how it might work for you!
