All measurements can be found on the product page for each of our garments.

Due to the nature of secondhand garments , the size mentioned on the tag will not always reflect the actual size. This discrepency is in part due to wear over time, washing, shrinking and variations across different eras. For example, a tagged medium shirt from the 1970s will fit different from a medium shirt from the 1990s. These inconsistencies are to be expected with most vintage clothes. We at basivé strongly encourage you to measure your favourite fitting garments to compare them when you're making a purchase with us. We do our best to provide our customers with accurate measurements for every garment listen on our website. Please check each description before your purchase. All the sizing across the entire website is measured in cm.

The following graphics can help you to determine if a certain item is a perfect match for you.
