I have had a hard time finding size comparisons between retro, rockabilly, and other indie brands. You likely already know that indie sizing may be far from the size you are used to buying. I ended up buying based on my measurements at a minimum with some larger options in the mix.
Below you will find my size comparison between the retro/indie clothing I own. My measurements are 46, 39, 47″. My usual sizing for comparison: 18UK top & bottom with Asos, XL-1X for Modcloth, 14-16 (XL) at Ricki’s, 1X-2X for Forever 21 Plus. Feel free to ask me anything specific in the comments.

Heart of Haute
Heart of Haute Gypsy Skirt in Roses are Red – 1XL – Way too small & I believe I would need a 3XL in this one.
Heart of Haute Marilyn Top in Black – 1XL – Good fit but there is a lot of room so I could easily stand to go one size smaller to the XL.

Hell Bunny Martie Skirt in Mint – 2XL – Same as above, about 1 inch too small.
