DD is 19 months old and needs t-shirts etc for now and to last a few months - should I go for 18-24 or 2-3 yrs? She's a slim jim but normal height.

Personally I've always found them to be big.

I'd go for 2-3, they are well made so will last a long time and look ok if a little bit big

Big. DS is 25 months and 18-24 both short sleeve and long sleeve tops are perfect (and will continue to be for quite a while yet).

Age 2-3 are massive and he's average size for his age.

I recently ordered a t-shirt and skirt in my daughter's age - the t-shirt fits fine but won't have much growing room (quite narrow) but the skirt is massive and I reckon wouldn't fit her for another 2 years!

Small. dd is 9 months, wearing 12-18 months

Poo. Only replies saying that they're big please as I placed an order last night grin.

My ds is nearly 2 and stills wears a fleece top age 12-18months.

It depends on whether you want it to last for next summer or if its for this summer.

If you want it for this year I would get the 18-24 month as I think the 2-3 will bury her.

Fwiw I've just ordered my ds some stuff in 18-24 and it's on the big size and he's wearing it now and I'm sure it will fit him next year too.

So what size did you order then.

I ordered 18-24 months as she needs tops to fit her now and last a few months.

Generally big, compared to Next anyway.

That should be fine.

I find them generally small, with the exception of 1 coat and the length on a couple of pairs of trousers. I would prob buy tops a size up and trousers in actual size.

They are big but the skirts/trousers etc usually have adjustable waists that are fantastic, so they fit really well even if your DD (like mine) is on the small/skinny side.

I would get the larger size however as they do wash well and last ages.

The adult sizes are enormous BTW
