Size Guide to Vintage Clothing

Vintage clothing sizes can vary from standardising 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 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 don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about sizing at mail@nordicpoetry.com

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.
