Your Guide to Measuring


Why do we list sizing measurements?

Vintage sizing is not the same as modern measurements. Over time, sizing has shifted and numbers/size names have become less helpful on vintage pieces. Our measurements help you determine the perfect fit. We encourage you to learn your sizes so you know what you're looking for on our site or with any other business!

Let's get measuring!

Some abbreviations to know when shopping with Deserted Thrifts:

PTP: Pit to Pit-  measures across the chest of a top from the armpit to armpit.
W: Waist- the measurement across the waist of a pair of bottoms

To get to know your preferred sizing, take a measuring tape across your favorite fitting jeans or top. Refer to our graphic to know which measurement we are referencing.
