Does your child wear the size they are "suppose" to wear, or bigger or smaller?

My dd is 3.5 but I buy a lot of 5T shirts for her. I hate it when they are too short waisted. She is in 4 T pants and shorts right now.

My son is 5 and I buy mostly 6-7 for him.

Does you child wear the "correct" size or do you have to go up or down to fit them right?

  • I don't think they ever have, lol.
    My 8 1/2 yo wears 7/8 tops but only a 6 slim pants (with adjustable waists or they are too big on her).
    My 7 1/2yo son wears 8/10 tops and 8 pants but they are getting short on him so he'll be moving to 10s in the fall.
    My 6yo daughter wears 7/8 tops and 6 pants but can also fit into 6X and 7 pants (although they are way too long on her).
    My 2yo (3 in a couple weeks) daughter wears 4/5 shirts (from the girls dept) and 3T pants right now but is right at the lower height range for 4T which is probably what I'll buy her for the fall.
    They do have other sizes in their drawers (bigger and smaller). My 2yo has a bunch of 2-3 shirts and 2T pants. The shirts fit okay but the pants are way too short on her. My 6yo tries to wear her 5T pants still but they are way too short. My 8yo has a bunch of 7 pants that are huge on her and can still fit into 4T shorts in the summer.

  • I think my son does but my daughter is NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! She's 2 1/2 and in my view should be a 2T possibly a 3T. She's just started wearing 24months and a size 4 1/2 to 5 shoe. She's so little but very healthy!!!

  • My oldest is three and very tiny she can wear a 24 months still sometimes and my almost 2 year old can wear 2T to 24 months!
