Size Guide (Vintage clothing) 
 
It is important to understand that vintage items are usually smaller than modern clothing. The label is not always true to current UK and International sizes, this is because manufacturers’ sizes vary. 
 
Will it fit? 
Bohemian Finds will endeavour to give you as accurate detail as possible for its Vintage Clothing. The measurements for each item are listed under the size and fit tab on each individual product page. We measure garments carefully across the chest, waist, hip, inseam and length so that we can do our best to ensure you have all the information about the fit of an item before you buy. 
There is a measuring guide below so that you find your own measurements.

Measuring guide 
 
Bohemian Finds measures all items laid flat. For comparison we recommend you find an item that fits you well from your wardrobe. Measure it laid out on a flat surface. Do not measure your body directly as it may give you misleading results. 
 
Bust or Chest: Ensure the garment is flat and lay your tape measure across the front from underarm to underarm and double the result. 
Waist: Each garments size and fit chart lists the items natural waist, this is the slimmest part of your midriff. To find the waist measurement lay your garment flat and measure the smallest part of the waist across the front and double the result. 
Hips: To find the hip measurement lay your garment flat and measure the widest part across the front and double the result. For A-line or full skirts and dresses measure the hip approximately 8 inches below the waist. 
Inseam: This is the vital information required to find the right length of trousers for your legs. Measure the inside of the leg from the crotch to the bottom of the trousers at the ankle. This is also referred to as the inside leg measurement. 
Length: Knowing the length of a garment is useful in understanding how short a dress, coat or top it will be when worn. Always measure from the top of the shoulder to the hem.
