Sizing Information

We know that measuring children and picking the right size of product isn’t always easy.  So, we’ve created and compiled some tips and tools to help you measure your children accurately and pick the right size of product. 

Remember, we will exchange any unworn items that are returned to us in their original condition with proof of purchase if the size you order doesn’t fit as well as expected.  See our Returns Information for more details.

Here is a helpful video from one of our suppliers, showing you the best way to measure your child accurately.  Please watch it and make a note of your child’s measurements before making your online purchase or coming in to our store.
