It can be very difficult to buy clothes for your child on the internet. In this article, you will find a little help with this. You are going to be amazed by the amount of variation that there may be between sizes of different brands.
Different brands of clothes would have different reactions when washed. When dealing with t-shirts, the best thing to do is to measure across the chest from one armpit to the other. After this measure from should to hem. This should be enough to get a proper size for children.
With pants, you should measure the waist and the length from the top to the bottom. You don't need to measure the inside of the legs with children's clothing. One thing you should be careful of though when buying trousers is whether they are or are not cropped.
So, you should carefully check the description to see whether they are cropped as you may not be wanting cropped clothes. Most companies usually have guides to sizes of children's wear posted on their websites but these are not very easy to find for some reason.
If you face such trouble finding size guides on a site then you should check the site map or the bottom of the homepage. You should find a link to the size guide somewhere around there. One final thing for you to remember before you start shopping online, never take a chance, always confirm the size before you buy anything.
