5 Mistakes Shoppers Make When Buying Vintage Levis Jeans

Posted on

Hey babes, we noticed some of you may be having a hard time when it comes to finding the right vintage jeans for yourselves. Well don’t fret because we’ve got you covered with some tips before making your next purchase.

1.Measure your waist before purchasing your jeans: All of Bridge and Bardot jeans are high-waisted so they sit differently than conventional pairs. In this case, you need to measure your TRUE waist. Make sure to use measuring tape and measure the circumference around your waist (the narrowest point between your ribs and hips). This is typically about an inch above your belly button.


2.Vintage jeans look different from present day styles: Another important thing to keep in mind is that vintage jeans are different than the usual jeans we see in stores today. From the fit to the detailing- the design of each vintage pair is unique. That is why it is important not to compare the two because they are both special in their own ways. Vintage jeans are much older so the style is guaranteed to be different.

3.Measure your hips: For all the beautiful curvy girls out there, this one’s for you! After measuring your waist, don’t forget to measure your hips. Your waist size will not be the same as your hips, this means you may need to size up. To ensure less hassle, measure your hips as well and we can find the perfect pair for you!

4.What is the purpose of your jeans: Once you have figured out your size the next step would be to identify for what purpose you are purchasing these jeans. For example, are they for everyday wear or for a night out? In the case of everyday jeans, we suggest going a little up in size so the jeans will sit looser and more comfortably throughout the day. In contrast, if these jeans are meant for a night out, we suggest a form fitting jean that hugs you in the right places- so opt for a jean that is exactly your size.

5.Ask questions: If you are unsure about anything, this includes sizing or style or even just general jean advice, shoot us an e-mail!
