Sizing Guide

Here at Brag Vintage we understand the importance of providing you with the appropriate sizing information for every garment we sell. Vintage clothing is particularly difficult to size sometimes as there often aren't labels inside, which is why we take specific measurements of all our items. On this page you will find a guide as to how we estimate our sizes based on the measurements we take and where we take the measurements from. We always advise that you check the measurements provided against measurements taken of your body or of items that you own, this is more likely to ensure a perfect fit. All our measurements are shown in inches.
