Size Guide

SIZING INFORMATION 

I’ve found my dream dress but how do I know if it will fit me ? 

Never, trust the sizing label in a vintage garment. Sizing has changed so much over the years that these are very rarely right which is why we measure all clothing. 
All products are given a modern day approximate UK size as a guide but we would urge you to check the measurements before purchasing to ensure a good fit.

All measurement provided on product pages are of the garment laid flat are are in both inches and centimetres.
Depending on the garment we measure across the bust/ chest, waist, hips ( generally 30 cm below the waist ), pit to pit and pit to the end of the cuff/ sleeve. For length we either measure from nape to hem or shoulder to hem whichever is most appropriate.

If you know your own measurements then you can double the laid flat measurements( with the exception of length ) to check if the garment will fit you but don’t  forget to allow for breathing space !


If you are unsure then it is a good idea to lay an item like the garment you wish to purchase which fits you well flat and compare the measurements with the product listing. 

If you have any questions regarding sizing or require any additional measurements please get in touch with us at info@bristolbettyvintage.com and we’ll be happy to help.
