Measuring Tips

Here are some tips to help you order the correct size. If you don't have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and hold it alongside a ruler.

Chest

Lift your arms slightly and measure around your body, crossing over the fullest part of your chest.

Sleeve

Place your hand on your hip with your arm bent at 90 degrees. Measure from the middle of the back of your neck, across the shoulder, and down your arm to the wrist.

With growing kids one size does not fit all

Finding the right fit for the changing bodies of kids is not always easy. That's why our size range goes beyond the average. But how do you know if your kid needs a better fit?

Pants

Question:Are pants too tight or too long?
Answer:Plus and husky pants are roomier at the waist, hip, thigh, and leg opening. They are also shorter than regular.

Question:Are pants too loose or baggy?
Answer:Slim pants offer a narrower waist, hip, thigh, and leg opening. (Same length as regular)

Tops

Question:In order for the shirt to fit through the chest and back, are they too long in the sleeves?
Answer:Plus and husky shirts offer fuller torsos and shorter sleeves.

How to measure without a ruler or tape measure?

If you don't have a ruler or tape measure handy, you can try to measure with a standard credit card, which has a width of 3 ⅜ inch or 8.56 cm and a height of 2 ⅛ inch or 5.4 cm.

If you do a lot of online apparel shopping, accurate body measurement using a tape measure is a must. The actual tape you choose doesn’t matter that much. This retractable one is very easy to use, and the fact it uses both CM and IN is extremely helpful.
