To establish the correct sizes:

Measure the actual body measurements as this is far more accurate than measuring over your clothes. If you intend on shopping without the child then it is advisable you have a note of these on you.

COLLAR: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits, inserting two fingers between the neck and tape to allow growth

HEAD: Measure around the top of the head where a cap would sit, just above the eyebrow.

WAIST: Measure around the natural waistline.

TROUSER LENGTH: Measure the inside leg from crotch to floor without shoes on.

HIPS: Measure around your hips, 20cm (8″) below your natural waistline.

SKIRT LENGTH: Measure from the waist down to where you would want the hem

DRESS & PINAFORE/TUNIC LENGTH: Measure from nape of neck to length required.

HEIGHT: No shoes, feet together flat on the floor, measure from the top of the head to the ground. Remember, height is a better guide than age in choosing the correct size for your child.
