Because to the different times, manufacturers and origin of each vintage piece, the size indicated on its label may be different to the sizes of today. So in the features of each vintage clothing, we show an approximate size to current standards. As it is an approximate information, we always recommend to check measurements of each garment.
The Bichovintage´s estimated sizes are based on the following equivalences:
|USA ||EU ||UK |
|XS ||32-34 ||4-6 |
|S ||36 ||8 |
|M ||38-40 ||10-12 |
|L ||42-44 ||14-16 |
|XL ||46 ||18 |
To take the measures that we show, we put the garment stretched over a smooth horizontal surface.
It is important to note that the measure is always greater than the body to permit movement, except in the case of knitwear or elastic clothing, that for their adaptability, they can coincide with the body measures.
It is advisable to compare these measures with a yours garment that you like your feeling well, considering the type and style of the clothing that you want to buy.
