    Vintage Sizing and Measurements

    Vintage sizing and modern sizing can be very different. Because of this, we provide detailed measurements of all vintage clothing to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly. An assessment of the estimated modern size will be noted, as well as any sizes on the tag, but please refer to measurements to best determine fit.

    A good way to determine fit:

    * Find a similar item in your wardrobe.
    * Measure it according to our measurement guidelines.
    * Compare your measurements to those of the vintage item you are interested in.
    * You're done. If it's a good fit, make it yours!

    We do occasionally pin clothing to fit our models, so please read all measurements carefully. We do not accept returns for vintage merchandise that does not fit. If you have any questions about our sizing/measurements, please contact us at info@meroretro.com.

    Measurement Guidelines

    All bust, waist, and hip measurements are taken straight across while garment is laid flat. Please double bust, waist, and hip measurements.
