Help! what size is next? Need to buy clothes for a kid I can not take out to try things on.
So my almost 11 year old daughter has been in a childrens behavioral/mental health hospital for almost 3 months now. She told me last night her clothes were getting too tight. I spoke with the nurse today and they confirmed shes gained 11 lbs in the last 2-3 months.
She had just started wearing 14 in girls jeans when we had to have her admitted. What size is next? Ive found conflicting sizing comments off of online.. some say she should perhaps be in a 5-7 juniors but Ive seen some things that suggest it might be more like a 2-4 in juniors.. or even a 1-2 in womens.. The problem is, is that I cant take her out to shop and try the stuff on. shes not allowed to leave the facility .So I want to try and guess as well as possible when I take some clothes to her this weekend. She was also wearing Large girl sized shirts or 14/16 depending on what the manufacturors went with. Would it be small junior shirts or medium juniors? or even small womens.. She is now 96 lbs if thats any help in deciding what size.. And shes somewhere in the neighbor hood of 4'10- 5ft.. shes grown taller too lately..
My older daughter is almost 13 but very tiny.. shes in a 8-10 girls clothing.. doesnt even weigh 70 lbs.. Her little sister is a good bit bigger lol ( and boy did we hear about how unfair that is lol) so Ive not had to transition to juniors or bigger before even though I have an older kiddo.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
