When thrift shopping, you absolutely must try everything on! Looking for your specific size doesn’t help because sizes and fits have drastically changed over the years. A size 4 from the 1950s might be closer to a modern size 2. To make trying on clothes easy, you’ll want to wear something that fits nice and loose so that you don’t have any trouble taking it on and off throughout the day. Try a loose-fitting maxi dress like this Stripe Long Scoop Back Dress ($50 from americanapparel.net) or this A-line Maxi Dress ($60 from americanapparel.net). These dresses will keep you comfortable all day. If you are vintage shopping at a flea market, you’ll find it more difficult to try clothes on, but in a loose dress you’ll be able to pull clothes on under your dress.
