For the most accurate sizing, have someone else take your measurements making sure the measuring tape is snug but not tight against your body. Measure ove light/minimal clothing. Our sizing charts should be used as a general guide for determining your size. Variations in body shape as well as cut and style of the product should be considered when chosing a size.
CHEST/BUST: - Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.

Clothing size charts are used to determine the size of clothing one should buy for a person with particular measurements. Girls, like women, vary in builds and sizes, and age is not always an accurate indication of sizes. Some four year olds may be significantly taller than others, and some might be slimmer or more slightly built. Shopping with or for a child is seldom easy. A trip to the clothing store can be as big a nightmare for the child as it is for the parent or parents, with clashes over taste differences or budget restraints being all too common. Knowing which sizes to look for significantly reduces the amount of time spent shopping, and decreases the chances of a child getting tired and unhappy.
