Did you know that vintage kids clothing typically fits very differently from modern kids clothing? So here are a few tips to make sure that perfect vintage outfit actually fits your little one!

1. Know that vintage and modern sizes fit differently

Most often, vintage kids clothing fits much smaller when compared to modern sizing. It’s not uncommon for a pair of vintage kids’ overalls that are tagged size 2T or 3T to fit more like a size 12M in today’s sizing. 

2. Look at the measurements

Most vintage clothing shops provide product measurements. At kids + corduroy, we always provide a few measurements on the product description page and we suggest comparing those measurements to another piece of clothing that currently fits your kiddo!

3. When in doubt, size up!

If you’re still not sure if something will fit your little one, always size up! That way, at least your little one will grow into it!

We hope these tips help! And let us know if you have any other tips or tricks s to share!
