We know how tough it can be to find the perfect size clothing for your kiddos, especially when you're shopping online or in store without your kids. Every brand does it a little different, and with a large amount of our kids clothing imported from Europe, the sizes might have you in a pickle.
That's why we're here to help you understand the differences between European and American kids' clothing sizes, so you can make the right decision when shopping for your little ones.
Height Matters: Get the Perfect Fit with European Kids' Clothing Sizes!
In Europe, children's clothing sizes are typically based on the child's height in centimeters. For example, a label might read "92 cm (2 years)." This sizing system makes it easier to find the right size for your child based on their height, which can vary greatly among children of the same age.
The Villervalla Size Chart is a great example of this.
|All measurements below are in cm. Age indications in the charts are guidelines based on medium-sized children|
It's important to pay attention to the height range when choosing a size. This might be really easy if you've recently measured your child at the health clinic!
It's also worth noting that not all brands follow the same sizing standards, so it's always a good idea to check the specific brand's size chart before purchasing clothing for a child. We've noticed that Piccalilly runs a bit bigger, especially in their kids clothing lines. My daughter sized down in a few things.
Size Up Your Little Ones: Finding the Right Fit with American Kids' Clothing Sizes!
Now, let's talk about American sizing. In the USA, kids' clothing sizes are usually based on their age or weight. For instance, you might see a label that says "3-6 months" or "4T" (which stands for "4 toddler"). These sizes are based on average measurements for children of a given age or weight range.
However, it's important to note that not all babies grow at the same rate, and some may outgrow a size faster or slower than others. This makes American sizing fairly random and more just a number than a reflection of what size a child should be wearing in kids clothing.
Each brand does their sizing a little different, so when shopping, it's important to consider this and refer back to the size chart. Take a look at these two from brands we carry.
Measure Up for the Perfect Fit: Shop with Confidence for Your Little One's Clothing Needs!
When in doubt, compare the size charts of the brand your shopping with your Childs measurement whether your shopping American or European kids clothing sizing.
To find the perfect fit, we recommend taking accurate measurements of your child's height, chest, waist, and hips. This will help you compare your child's measurements to the size chart and choose the right size.
In conclusion, understanding the differences between European and American kids' clothing sizes is key to finding the right clothes for your child. Use our size charts and take accurate measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Happy shopping!
