Size Charts

Since most of our clothing items are personalized, it is very important to choose the right size. We cannot accept returns due to incorrect sizing. If you have any questions, please contact us so we can help you find the best fit.

We often hear: "My child weighs 20 pounds, what size should I get?" This is not a good way to determine size. The height/weight measurements are simply general guidelines and should not be solely used to determine sizing. The measurements listed below are the actual measurements of the clothing item, not of your child. So if your child has a 18" chest, you do not want to select a size with a 18" chest also. This would be too tight and uncomfortable. Please add 1.5-2" to you child's actual chest size and then match this measurement to our size chart. In this case, the child with the 18" chest would need our 12m size.

It is most important to know your child's chest, inseam and length measurements. To obtain a chest measurement, measure your child around the chest, under the arms (with arms up) and then add 1-2" for movement. To find the best length, measure (shoulder to hem) an item of clothing that you like where the hemline falls. We know how hard it can be to measure a wriggling toddler! For pants, measure from waist to ankle and add approx. 1-2" to this measurement to allow for movement. If your child's measurements fall between sizes, we recommend going up a size. Most boutique clothing runs smaller than average. We no longer accept custom measurements- please order one size bigger if your child is between sizes. Clothing that is a bit too big can always be altered- too small clothing cannot.
