Measuring Guide

For all second hand clothing the following measurements are provided. These measurements are taken on the garment itself to provide a more accurate representation of how it will fit.

NOTE: All measurements are approximate as some garments will stretch more than others.

SHOULDER: This measurement is taken across the shoulders from one sleeve seam to other sleeve seam across the back of the garment

CHEST: This measurement is taken across the chest of the garment, from side seam to sides seam.  It goes across the garment directly under the armpits, where the side seam meets the sleeve. For sleeveless tops, the measurement is taken across the garment right under the arm holes. In all cases this measurement is taken with the garment closed (full circumference)
