How we Measure Clothing

   We carry merchandise from many different manufacturers. Sizing can vary significantly from item to item. Please note the measurements listed on each product page to get a better idea of how an item fits. 

   The best way to determine how an item will fit is to compare the measurements listed to an article of your clothing. 

  • Due to the secondhand nature of items, fit can vary after wear and washing.

  Our garment measurements are taken in inches with the item laid flat. As it is essential that you know your measurements, please refer to our tips below for getting your fit right. 

Chest / Bust: Wrap the tape around the widest part of your chest / bust. This is usually just under the armpit. Measure all the way around your body in inches. 
The garment will probably measure more than your chest measurement.  For example, if the garment measures 2 inches more than your body size, it will fit you quite tightly. Or if the garment measures 8 inches more than your body size it will be quite a loose fit.
Alternatively, find a similar garment you own already which has a fit you like. Lay it flat and measure straight across just under the armpit. Double this amount to get the full measurement. If the garment you want to buy has the same measurement, it should fit you in a similar way.

Waist: Wrap the tape around your body at the point at which you normally wear your jeans or trousers. The garment you want to buy should have the same waist measurement.
Alternatively, find a similar garment you already own which fits you well. Lay it flat and measure straight across the top. Double this amount to get the full waist measurement. The garment you want to buy should have the same waist measurement.
