Granted ,many women were smaller back in the day – sometimes incredibly tiny compared to modern averages. Especially if you are hunting for bargains, it might seem like everything you see is impossibly small (They really meant it when they coined the term “wasp-waist”?)
However, don’t believe it. If you are fortunate enough to wear a small or x-small size, you will have lots of success. Still, I regularly find items of all types which are medium to large, too. If you need a special item right away and haven’t been able to discover one in your size, you can visit a specialty vintage dealer and pay the market price. There are lots of reputable people whom I have found whose prices are reasonable and their service is expert and trustworthy.
If you have more time, a clear idea of what you want and some skills will find it for you eventually (maybe sooner than later!) Accessories, too, usually work for any size figure and many clothing items can be altered or adapted to fit.
So, don’t let size discourage you because magic always happens when you believe in it.
