Children's clothing size chart

The table of children's sizes is created to help parents. It helps to correctly determine the size of the child and to choose the right clothes. The table takes into account the main criteria, such as age, weight, height, gender. Tables are made taking into account the type of clothing: top, shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, shorts, underwear, hats, shoes.

Tables are easy to understand and learn. Their significant drawback is that the data entered into them may differ due to the individual characteristics of the growth and structure of the baby's body.

The ratio of age, weight and height

The table of children's sizes of clothes for boys and girls takes into account the most important parameters of the child: age and height in centimeters. You can find out about the approximate size of the baby from the table, just choosing his age. The table is focused on the growth of the child. It is easy to pick up clothes and tights on it. International sizes are indicated not by numbers, but by letters: S, M, SM.

If you want to know more about clothing, carefully read the data on the label. For 24 clothing sizes, a child grows from 74 to 80 centimeters. Such things are aimed at children from six to nine months; 86 size fits babies from 82 to 86 centimeters tall; sizes 74-110 are suitable for children with growth from 69 to 110 centimeters. For height 146 should choose clothing size 146; for a height of 152 cm, things are selected taking into account individual characteristics.

Monthly chart designed for newborns, convenient and versatile. It is ideal for children under four years old. Chinese size tables are different from European. In them, manufacturers add a letter to the number: 2t, 3t, 4t, 8t, 10t, 4a, 24m. Deciphering these designations is simple: the number in front of the letter indicates the age of the child. In foreign online stores, you can often find tables that use height and age as a measure.

If you pick up clothes for babies up to a year, knowing his height is not enough.

Manufacturers often indicate weight in tables. Using this data, it’s much easier to find perfectly fitting sliders. If the size specified in the table is non-standard, then here you can not do without tips.

Size 110 means that the item is designed for a child 110 cm tall. With such parameters, difficulties arise, because a child of this height can be of different complexions, thin or full. If clothes are purchased on the site, difficulties may arise due to the lack of automatic sizing. In this case, indicate the wishes in the comments during the order, otherwise the seller will send random goods.

Chinese and European manufacturers, starting from the age of 7 years, indicate sizes only in letters: S (small), M (medium), L (large). Try not to confuse these sizes with adults, choose them according to a separate table. There are tables for shoes and other items of clothing. Each manufacturer (not counting major brands), tries to compile tables taking into account the individual characteristics of production and accepted standards.

Experts advise taking measurements from the baby before buying.

If the child has passed the milestone of five years, you can choose clothes with him in the store with a fitting. During the fitting, do not scold the child, otherwise the purchase of clothing will injure him. If parents buy things without trying on, it is recommended to study the structural features of the baby, focus on weight and age. Remember that modern children are larger than their parents, grandparents and children were once.

Size range for babies from 0 to 1 year

Toddlers aged 0 to 1 year gain weight quickly and grow. Buying clothes for such crumbs can cause difficulties due to the fact that each manufacturer has the right to sew clothes according to their own standards. Large Russian brands create clothes for children in accordance with GOST. Newborns need comfortable clothes.

The most popular things are overalls, vests, bodysuits, hats, bonnets, romper suits, socks, tights, mittens, mittens.

Overalls for newborns are selected by height. They have a loose fit. When choosing a jumpsuit, keep in mind that the baby is growing rapidly, so buy a thing for growth. When buying sliders, panties and T-shirts, pay attention to the size system. On children's things of Russian manufacture, the numbers 18, 20, 22 are indicated. Buy sliders taking into account the baby's growth and chest circumference. Do not be afraid to take things for kids one more size.

The length of the foot will help determine the size of the socks. Correctly it is measured from the heel to the tip of the thumb. For sizes of socks there is a separate table from 0 to 2 years. Tights for children are selected taking into account the growth in centimeters. If the child has a large leg, it is better to take tights that stretch. For a well-fed baby, tights one size larger than their real age are suitable. Remember that different manufacturers may have their own grid of sizes.

The size of hats and caps is determined by the length of the circumference of the head. Correct measurement: on the eyebrows, above the ears and to the back of the head. The sizes of the caps are different. They can be denoted by a number and a letter, be single, double. More often double sizes: 36-38, 42-44. In the case of hats for a month-old baby, you should choose hats by size, and not by height. The size of mittens and mittens is determined by the length and girth of the palm, excluding the thumb.

Given that the physical development of each child takes place at an individual pace, it is difficult to choose clothes strictly according to the table.

After 13 years, it is easier to find a correspondence between the given tables and the parameters. Remember that the division into women's and men's clothing begins at the age of six. Teenage tables have a gender division: for girls and boys, as well as by type of clothing.

Take measurements

Buying clothes for a child is a complex and responsible process. Parents know how hard it is to choose things for rapidly growing children. Do you want to correctly determine the size of clothes? Make the correct measurements. Children under two years old should be measured while lying down, and after two years of age - standing.

All measurements are carried out using a soft centimeter tape. The sizes of the hips and chest are determined by the most prominent points. When measuring the waist, the child should not strain and retract the abdomen. The body should be as relaxed as possible. Sleeve length is measured from the shoulder joint to the tip of the thumb.

A properly selected shirt, sweater, jacket sits on the figure, and when raising hands it does not bulge and does not expose the body. The step seam of jeans or trousers is measured from the inguinal zone to the ankle. To determine the size of the headgear, the head circumference is measured from the protruding point of the nape and the superciliary arch. The measuring tape should not be tightened during measurements.

In many tables, the head circumference is indicated in centimeters with a slight error. Baby socks fit shoe sizes. Tape the foot from the heel to the tip of the big toe (the largest protrusion). Children's tights are selected in accordance with the size of the foot, leg length and age.

When analyzing size charts, remember that each country has its own system. In America, clothes are chosen taking into account age with averaged parameters. In Europe, breast, hips, waist and height are taken as a basis.

Clothing from Russia

Russian sizes are clear to the buyer of children's clothing. Domestic manufacturers sew things in accordance with GOST, which allows you not to make a mistake during the purchase. If the manufacturer is conscientious and sews things according to the established standard, then winter, summer, outerwear, dresses, and also the bottom will be easy to pick up for the child according to the table. Russian sizes are based on metric data, which helps to make the right choice.

The Russian dimensional grid is different in that it is universal and includes height, age, weight, volume, length of the step seam, sleeves. The table is designed for children aged 1 month to 14 years.

Dimensional grid of European sizes

European sizes, including English, differ from domestic ones. It’s easier for kids under four to buy clothes than older kids. With active growth, the difference between boys and girls becomes pronounced, so you should use gender tables.

If you buy clothes made in Europe, take things one size larger. Children grow quickly, so buying clothes for growth is economically beneficial for parents.

The European size range exists separately for boys and girls aged three to seventeen. A separate table is also available for children from 0 to 3 years. The tables include information on Russian size, age, height, chest circumference and data on European, English and American sizes. Domestic and European dimensional grids are almost identical. The only difference is that in Russia, clothes are created according to GOST and designed for skinny children, and European things sit on the figure freely and tend to oversize.

Chinese size line

The most important difference between the Russian dimensional grid and the Chinese one is that domestic manufacturers are guided by the growth of the child when creating clothes, and the Chinese by age. Given the fact that there are a lot of Chinese products in stores and on the shelves, it is necessary to understand the line of foreign sizes. The Chinese size range is smaller than the Russian: only four sizes for babies up to a year.

On things made in China, you can sometimes find the letter "t." This means that the clothing is intended for children over two years old.

The number in front of the letter indicates the age of the child, for example, "3t."

The dimensional grid of Chinese clothes goes for three categories: children of two years of age, boys from three to seventeen years old, girls from three to fifteen years old. The tables indicate Russian size, Chinese, age, height, chest circumference.

Dimensional grid of Turkish things

Turkish-made clothes and shoes are of high quality tailoring and materials. In Russia, things from Turkey are highly valued.

If you buy clothes for a child in the country of production, then you can buy a high-quality and durable thing for little money. If you are afraid to make a mistake with the Turkish sizes, choose clothes taking into account the weight and height for a 4-5-year-old child.

Typically, Turkish manufacturers indicate on the label what growth this or that item is intended for.

Older children need to take measurements, but this is quite tiring, so most parents take their children to the mall and measure their clothes before buying.

Specially designed tables for these purposes. Turkish manufacturers are sharing sizes for children from 0 to 2 years old, boys from 3 to 17 years old and girls from 3 to 15 years old. Turkish tables include the sizes of different countries, the age of the child, height and chest circumference.

Rules for choosing clothes of a foreign manufacturer

When choosing clothes of foreign manufacture, adhere to some rules:

  • Things from France are small, so take clothes a size larger.
  • Clothing from Italy and Germany is larger.
  • If the Chinese clothing is factory-made, the size chart can be trusted. Fakes often do not adhere to the dimensional grid.
  • When measuring height, girth of the hips and chest, the child should be dressed in underwear.
  • Be sure to wash your clothes after purchase. Remember that clothing made from natural fabrics sits when washed in hot water.
