I want to bid on some children's clothes from Monsoon on ebay, but I have this idea that monsoon sizes tend to come up small. I have a very tall DD, and I just want to make sure that she isn't going to get lost in the dresses. She wears a 7-8 or an 8-9 (for John Lewis, where I also find the sizes tiny). Any one have any ideas? Thanks!!
I find them small on length but not around the waist. I got DD a skirt in the sale in Saturday and the 3-4 falls down on her (she is tall and nearer 5 than 4). The skirt doesn't have those handy maternity wear style buttons either.
I tried a bridesmaids dress on her in there today and I've gone for the age 5 for length but think I'm going to have to try and get it altered around the chest/waist.
