Help me order the right size here.
My DD is quite big for her age. Her chest measurement is 33/34’
she wants her hoodie “oversize”
I think M, she thinks L
I need to get this ordered and don’t want to mess it up.

trying on her sisters S one wasn’t much help- it fitted nicely but can’t imagine what the M or L would be like .

Are all your year 6s going massive on the hoodies?

Do the school not have sample sizes to try on?

DelilahBucket · 01/06/2023 09:51

A medium going by that chart. She's probably only going to wear it once anyway.

HereLiesBetelgeuse · 01/06/2023 09:52

They all wear them big here. I ordered 2 sizes up from the right measurement and it looks good.

Hoppinggreen · 01/06/2023 09:53

Just get one as large as possible.
Oversized is fine, too small is not and the fashion seems to be for big hoodies. DD is a size 6/8 and steals my size 16 ones

I got my similar sized daughter an M

TrishTrix · 01/06/2023 10:18

I’d get the l. She is more likely to wear it big than small.

TeaandHobnobs · 01/06/2023 10:20

A size L would fit my 6ft plus not slender husband, by that chart. I’d go M - it will still be oversized on her, but not ridiculous

PhantomErik · 01/06/2023 10:21

Get the large, oversized is definitely in.

My DD14 is a size 6-8 & loves my size 18's!

GeorgeSpeaks · 01/06/2023 10:22

You're over thinking it. She wants it big, bigger will last longer. Get L!

mondaytosunday · 01/06/2023 10:22

Médium. If she's still growing though get her large (my daughter stopped growing at 12).
Trend is for oversize and my 34 inch daughter would get a large, though I think it's too large!

Looks like similar sizing to the ones our school ordered.

My very slender y6 has an age 12 - 13, and it seems to be roughly the same size as an adult S, only difference being that the S has a drawstring at the neck.

The age 12-13 on my dd is roomy width ways, but not particularly long. I wouldn't say its fashionably oversized/enormous. So ... go for M may be??

PuttingDownRoots · 01/06/2023 10:26

If its Unisex stuff... as a 16-18 woman I get XL for it to be slightly baggy

timefornewme2023 · 01/06/2023 10:26

My DDs practically went to her knees when she got it - oversized definitely in !
She wore it EVERYWHERE last summer and is still happy to wear it now 1 year on so it's worth getting it with growing room and getting what she wants.

Season0fTheWitch · 01/06/2023 10:35

Get the L, she'll grow into it when she's older and it's in now to wear too-big hoodies.

Coronationstation · 01/06/2023 10:36

I'm a similar chest size and wear an adult small to fit me normally. if she wants it properly oversized I'd probably go for a large.
