VINTAGE AND REWORK SIZING
All of our items are vintage and may already contain clothing size labels. We source our stock from around the world, so although our store is UK based, the sizing on the labels may relate to the standard clothing sizes of other countries and could be outdated due to their vintage nature.
We provide the specific measurements of items in every listing and convert these into current dress sizes as accurately as possible. If the converted sizing differs to that stated on the physical label, we will do our best to advise the most suitable sizing in accordance with current size charts within the description.
Our Loot Label pieces often contain original labels and authentic brand tags, again these may not reflect the true size of the garments once they have been spruced up and re-designed by the skilful hands of our rework team. We will include the new measurements and updated sizes within all Loot Label listings.
See below for our sizing conversion charts.
HOW WE MEASURE
Outer-leg? Inner-leg? Shoulder, armpit or elbow? There's a whole load of body parts we could be sizing up, so if you're not sure where to place the ends of that measuring tape, here's a guide to how we measure our stock:
Chest - Measured at the fullest part of the chest, directly under the armpits.
Waist - Measured at the waistband if there is one, otherwise this measurement is take about 6-8 inches below the armpit.
Sleeve - Sleeve styles vary hugely throughout the eras, with puff sleeves, dropped shoulders and cut-out styles making this one a little tricky, we measure the underarm from the armpit to the cuff.
Length - The full length is taken from the nape of the neck, down to the hemline.
Length of Body - For items such as jumpsuits, playsuits and bodies or swimsuits, we measure from the nape of the neck to the crotch.
Rise - Measured from the crotch seam up to the top of the waist band at the front.
Inner Leg - This measurement is taken inside the leg, from the crotch seam down to the hem.
