And how tall are they? Do they still wear children's range clothes?

DS wears age 15 or small adult sizes, he is almost 5ft 5 and has size 11 adult feet.

The tallest child in his year is a girl who has been 5ft 8 since last year of primary school.

DD wore size 6 women's jeans as age 12 were too short and too wide, and size 5 shoes. She was 5'1" and on the 50th centile for weight and height.

DD is 5'1" and is smaller than most of her friends. This is a little surprising as both OH and I are fairly tall (5'7" and 6'2"). I would like her to be at least 5'6" before she stops growing.

Dd is 5ft 4 with size 5 feet and wears a ladies 8/10, 30b bra

Occasionally she will find something in the children's section in a age 13 but tends to prefer adult clothes

I think her adult height will be around 5 10 as I'm 6ft and her dad is the same size

My dd has been in adult clothes for a couple of years. She wears I think size 6 now (we are going shopping tomorrow so I'll be more accurate then) and has started filling out a bit over the last few months. She is 5'9" and still growing at the rate of knots. Her feet stopped growing a couple of years back at size 7. She's always worn clothes a couple of years older than her age, and dh is 6'5" so it's no surprise.

I send way more money on her clothes than mine, but she does look pretty fantastic (she has a lovely figure and great posture).

DD is just 13 and slim with long legs. Age 13 jeans are a little too big on the waist and a little too short on the leg. Size 6 is a good fit.

DD is nearly 12 & has size 1.5-2 feet. Wearing size 10-11 clothes.

DD is 12.5 years old. She's got size 6 feet. She is wearing a size 8 in trousers, thanks to curvy hips, and a size 8 in tops because she likes 'em roomy. She has boobs, 32 aa to be precise, and is lean rather than skinny. She is taller than her grandma already but that's no surprise as DH and I are both 6 footers. She wears S in Jack Wills, Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch shirts. She will wear medium though. She wears their trousers in a 26 with a regular leg length, which she then rolls up.

She has some clothes that are children's age 11 - 16 but she rarely buys kids clothes now.

DD is 12. She is around 150cm tall and weighs about 30kg. I don't know the imperial, she is a metric child!
Her feet are size 1 -1/1/2 and she wears age 9 school skirts and tops.
In H+M she wears 10-12 size clothes. She has teeny tiny bosoms which she covers with crop top style bras.

My DD3 is 13 and wears age 9-10 stuff, which is often a bit big round the waist. She's tiny in both directions. She has some adult size 4 stuff but its mostly big on her.

DD1 and DD2 are both a size 6 and still fit into age 10 clothes (DD2 has a few age 8 skirts). We're built small in this family - the only one of my DDs who doesn't fit age 10 clothes is DD4, who is 10! She's still in age 7-8 for the most part!

160cm tall, size 10, 30c bra.

DD is 12 and wears an adult size 10.

MadeOfStarDust Wed 17-Jul-13 18:32:09

DD2 is 12 - 5'5" size 6 feet - size 6-8 Adult or age 13/14 child - because she has developed hips and small boobs this year...

NoComet Wed 17-Jul-13 14:13:44

DD2 does 11-12
DD1 didn't she was around a 10-12 adult or a next age 16, a real pain because she was 5'2" ish and didn't have adult boobs, so stuff was too long and tops didn't fit.

She is now 5'6"+ and a perfect size 12, at 15 she's still wearing some of those tops and they now fit perfectly.

DS doesn't have genetics on his side, I'm 5'0", DH is 5'7. I am smaller than most of the 11YOs on this thread (I wear size 6-8 or age 13 clothes), and there's not even hope of a growth spurt in my mid thirtiesgrin.

Peachyjustpeachy Wed 17-Jul-13 14:05:06

My dd is 9 10 in Nov. She wears 8_9 tops and 4_5 bottoms. Her cousin is 10 months older she wears size 18 adult stuff but isnt even 11 yet

All kids are different

We might need to make a date to come back in four years time to see what height they are then....

DS has never been tall for age (and definitely still isn't) but I have no doubt that by the time he's 16 he will be at least 6 feet tall - DW and I were both late developers and are confident that he's following the same growth pattern.

DD (who is very tall for her age) is another matter entirely!

FWIW InMySpareTime, DS only wears size 2 1/2 shoes at 12 going on 13 - but big feet don't run down the male lines on either side so fully anticipate he'll never go beyond a 7 1/2 shoe size!

steppemum Wed 17-Jul-13 13:57:14

ds is 10

yes TEN and he is in size 8 shoes and size 13-14 clothes except trousers which has has to have 2 sizes smaller as he wears them so low down on his skinny bum

Grrrrrr (went shopping with him yesterday for trousers -sigh-)

dd1 is 8 and in size 9-10 all ready so she is going the same way

I should have married a midget.

MiniTheMinx Wed 17-Jul-13 13:51:14

DS aged 12 wearing size 5 shoes and age 12-13 in clothing. He has always been bang on with size to age ratio, just assumed he was normal height. Looking at other posts here.......he's obv a pygmy.

Oh, size 1 shoes. He seems so small compared to others on this thread, I hope he catches up eventually.

DS will be 12 in September, he's 131cm tall, wears age 9-10 clothes mostly.

mimbleandlittlemy Wed 17-Jul-13 13:42:20

DS is aged 11, 5' 7", size 10 feet, wearing men's medium/32 or 34 waist depending on cut/where they come from.

It's an expensive nightmare especially shoe-wise.

gazzalw Wed 17-Jul-13 11:30:58

DS still in a boys age 12 clothes. He is convinced he's little for his age - he does seem quite small compared with a lot of children. However, he is and has always been 'bang on' with wearing the right clothes for his age, so assuming he is within the height parameters he should be!

bigTillyMint Wed 17-Jul-13 11:23:42

DD wore age 11-12yrs (or even 10-11yrs for waist on skirts) at that age. Even adults size 6 was too long on the arms. She started her periods at 12 and was a B-cup. She is about 5'3" and a size 6-8 now aged 14, and a 28D.

DS (12) is 5'6 or 7" and is wearing adult men size S or 28" waist trousers. Age 15 in boys uniform.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 17-Jul-13 11:21:53

DD1 wears 10-11 or sometimes 11-12 trousers. Shes 12yo.

Tops she wears age 13 though has started buying adult size stuff, normally size 8 as she likes baggy tops.

She's quite short, maybe a bit over 140cm????
