Our children’s clothes are designed to allow room for growth. Use our top tips for measuring before deciding on size. Remember, measurements such as height are a better guide than age in choosing the correct size. All the measurements are in cm.
If your child’s measurements are bigger than our 16 year old sizing, please note the garments move to our adult sizing of chest and waist size. Please refer to waist sizes for joggers, shorts and track pants and chest sizing for all tops.
TOP TIPS FOR MEASURING
How to find the right size?
Take actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over clothes!
- Height: no shoes, feet together flat on the floor, measure from the top of the head to the ground.
- Neck: measure the child’s collar where the shirt would naturally sit. Always allow a little room in the collar for growth.
- Chest: measure the chest under the child’s arms at the fullest part of the chest. The measurement is given on the circumference.
- Waist: measure around the child’s natural waistline. The measurement is given on the circumference.
- Hips: measure at the fullest part around the bottom.
- Inside leg: unlike the other measurements which are body measurement, the inside leg measurement corresponds to the length on the trouser you are buying. Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.
- Back measurement: like the trouser measurement, the back measurement refer to the length of the blazer you are buying. To measure your child for the correct blazer length, measure down the center of the back from the base of the neck (2) to the fullest part of the hip (5).
