Just wondering if anyone's child actually wears the right clothing size for their age. My DD's (aged 9) are in age 11-12 clothes and are by no means the biggest in their class. Having looked at age 9 clothes, I don't think I know a 9 year old they would fit. Does anyone else find this?
my dd is 4 today she has gone to pre school in a pair of age 4 trs, and 18-24month top (which is a bit big) and an age 7 coat. when i go shopping for clothes for her i measure them rather than looking at the size, if i buy her size i almost always have to take them back.
My dd will be 7 in december, and quite tall(129cm last time I checked). Not particularly skinny. Her last lot of clothes are mainly aged 9-10 and 3 tops are 11-12 For skirts, I have to buy long (supposedly mid calf) aged 4-5, and they fit her waist perfectly and come to her knees.
I have to take in all her trousers, but loving that leggings are in cause they fit just fine
dd is just 2 and all her trous are 2-3s with the cuffs rolled up. Her favourite cardigan is 12-18m and has a lot of room left, but when her great-aunt knitted her a cardigan for her birthday it needed 2yo lentgh arms but 4yo size chest. Yesterday's tshirt was age 4.
Liek Nancy I use a tape measure to see if things will fit rtaher than the size, but once I have cracked it I buy multiples (eg all thsoe Next 2-3 roll-up trous)
My 7 year old wears clothes for a 6 year old and my 4 year old wears clothes for a 3 year old... but I'm never told that they're small for their ages. I think they're slightly above average. ONly slightly. But my kids have always been wearing clothes for year below.
UNLESS boden, and then I have to send it back for being too small!!
