  • Hmmm... I know that Carter's has some 7, maybe 8T (as in toddlers).. which just means they are shorter in size... but that might mean Tall too....

  • Is there another child on the sheet? Could be the parent just went on autopilot if they had toddler sizes for a younger sibling.

  • I'd think that at a size 8,it would stand for tall
    For pants,I'd go a size larger

  • I was thinking tall as well.

  • I would go 7-8 and ignore the T. Toddler sizes generally stop around size 5. Though I suppose it could mean tall.

  • In my experience, toddler sizes stop at about 6T, tops, and even those were few and far between. I would assume tall. Is there someone you can contact who can maybe contact the family to be sure? Otherwise, I would either assume tall, or just get 7-8 period.

  • It usually means toddler sizes but 5T is usually the largest. Could it mean Tall?? if not just go with size 7/8

  • T usually stands for tall
