  • 4T, some of the costumes are kind of small though, so you may even want to go a size higher, just try it on him while youre at the store.

  • Go with the larger size. It's easier to take in than it is to let out...

  • You can try them on. Make sure it fits before you buy it!

    Good Luck!

  • my son is the exact same way. i never thought of that...crap now i have to figure it out too. maybe just get a 4T pant and use a belt? or make him squeeze into a 3T for one night.

  • The costumes they sell are for 3T-4T. They don't have 3T, 4T...... My daughter is 3 and I had to buy the 3T-4T size

  • size 4 or even 5. I like to get things big!

  • I always buy costumes bigger so that they can wear clothes underneath, it is cold in Ohio in October!

  • I'd get the bigger size. I learned the hardway that with my son if I buy him the costume size he wears in normal clothes, it's too small on him. Mine wears 4T, but I bought him 4-6x, which is bigger, but not too big and better than too small. I would have gotten 5T, but I didn't see that size.

    To give an example, my son was Yoda last year. He was wearing 3T/4T clothes, so I bought him 4T. From the picture, the robe should have come to his ankles. It came to his knees, LOL. I had to buy brown pants for him to wear with it. He was still an adorably cute little Yoda though! :)

  • 4 or 5...costumes tend to be made small and depending on the temperature where you are you may want him to be able to wear clothes under it.

  • I'd go with a 5T give him space for a sweater underneath and maybe it will hold up for next year too.
