When shopping for vintage goods there are a few things to keep in mind. More often than not a size 10 back in the day is more like a size 6 these days. The average woman in Britain is more like a curvy size 14 now. So when you’re looking at the finest vintage piece, YOU MUST TRY ON. Vintage shops don’t have favourable returns policies so you may find yourself stuck with something you won’t ever wear.
