As vintage sizing varies so much (some of these vintage pieces were originally homemade or custom made too) sizing can be a little harder to grasp. Therefore rather than sticking to a traditional size chart all product measurements have been written out individually in each product description along with an approximate size of XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL. You are able to search your approximate size in the sidebar.
Never forget the power of a good tailor and do remember if you have something altered to fit you, then it should fit perfectly. Tailoring needn’t be expensive either, as often this can be done through your local dry cleaner. If you have question about a piece’s sizing, or are wondering whether it would be easily altered, then do get in touch. We are also happy to offer the contacts of the tailors we have used and loved in London, Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne.
As you may or may not know it is incredibly hard to source lager sizes when dealing with predominantly mid-century vintage clothing. As we're currently restricted to sourcing within Australia we are finding it even harder to find larger sized items here from the periods we are most interested in. However it is our intention to be able to offer a variety of sizes and to cater to all body shapes. In the near future there is potential for Chez Charlotte to stock more modern brands with vintage elements, and we are working on producing our own capsule collection of classic clothing. As we do this we will strive to cater to as many sizes as possible.
