Need help on little girl sizing?

Help, moms! My daughter turned 4 in June. She is clearly growing out of size 4 clothing. I've been out this past weekend to go shopping for a few things and am VERY confused. She's currently in 4T. When does the T stop? When does she finally leave the little baby girl section and go to the big girl section? So many questions really...I guess any advice in general? Thanks!

  • I've started buying my 2 1/2 yo DD XS (4/5) t-shirts in the girls' section. She's still in 2t pants though, her legs are short.

  • She could probably go for either 5t or the smallest sizes in the little girls sections like 4,5,6 etc. My little girl is almost four and that's how I shop for her.

  • The t's stop at 5T I believe and go to 6 or 6X (Xtra slim). I think I shopped both sections at age 5.

  • it stops at 5T. but i would go ahead and start looking in the little girls depart size 4/5 or xs i think. you can also get a measuring tape and measure her and compair it to the stores sizing chart.usually found online.

  • The "T" size stops at 5T. The little girls' section starts at XS which is 4/5, but I think it's a little bit bigger than the "T" sizes. At least that was my experience with my daughter. Also, just so there's no confusion, the X in 6X is actually like a "plus size" where they are a little fuller through the butt and thigh. They have 6X and then 6 slim -- I hope that helped. I was confused too when my daughter got to be abou a 4T and 5T also!

  • It depends on the store!! The childrens place they stop at 5t for there jeans, but the size 4 in the big girls sections fit bigger than the little girls 5t ones. very confusing! lol And their shirts fit SMALL!! the size 4/5 is more like a 3x size. Just check out the stores size charts and do the measurments! Good luck!
