Sizing | La Petite Mort


How we measure (Vintage Clothing):

BUST: Armpit to armpit with the garment laying flat and then doubled.

WAIST: The smallest point at the waistline with the garment laying flat and then doubled. 

HIPS: The fullest part of the hips with the garment laying flat and then doubled.

SLEEVE LENGTH: The seam at the shoulder to the bottom of the sleeve.

SHOULDERS: The seam at one shoulder to the seam on the other shoulder.

INSEAM: On the inside of the leg, length of the crotch seam to the ankle hem.

RISE: The crotch seam to the natural waist.

TOTAL LENGTH: The highest point on the shoulder to the very longest point on the garment.

SHOES: The shoes are all medium width unless otherwise specified. All run true to size unless otherwise specified in the item description. 

Measurements that require a circumference, i.e. bust, waist, and hip measurements should be multiplied by two; all measurements are in inches. 

The most accurate method of calculating how something will fit on your body is by taking a garment of the same category (already in your closet with your desired fit) and comparing its measurements to that in which you're interested in from our shop with a tape measure. 

**Please note Modern clothing lines will follow modern sizing guidelines, but sizing may vary per brand.
