There is no "set" size to use as a reference when shopping for vintage. You're usually "six numbers bigger" than your modern size for vintage pieces purchased prior the 1980s. Sizing system changed in the 1980s to roughly 4 sizes bigger than modern size. I am a size 10, making me a size 14 in 80s vintage. The best rule of thumb is know your body's measurements. For example, knowing your waist and bust size helps determine whether a vintage item will fit, especially when shopping for them online. Please be sure to ask all questions before purchasing item. Thank you.
