fit guidelines kids's fashions

To ensure the best fit, we recommend you measure yourself with a soft tape measure and,
if possible, have someone help you. We have standardized sizing within our private label
brands, to help you shop with confidence.

Helpful Hints for Measuring

  • All measurements are body measurements, not garment measurements.
  • All measurements are in inches.
  • Hold the tape measure firmly, but not tightly.
  • For best results, take measurements over undergarments.
  • When measuring circumferences, tape measure should be parallel to the floor.
  • Stance should be natural with arms at your side.
  • Match your measurements to the appropriate size chart.
  • If your measurement fall between sizes, order the larger size.
