How Children’s Clothing Size Conversion Works

Shopping for clothes overseas is fun, but converting sizes from one country to another makes it a nightmare. Different countries after all follow different sizing standards which could sometimes be confusing.

The US, UK and Australian children’s sizes for example are traditionally based on the child’s age. American children’s sizes however include toddler sizes, bigger sizes for big kids and size differences between girls and boys. In other parts of Europe meanwhile, sizing is based on the height of the child and the unit used is centimeters.

Europe has the most accurate sizing metrics as its sizes is based on the centimeter measurement of a child’s bust, waist, and length. This is unlike the US, UK and Australia that uses a generalized age gauge for the size, approximating that the age of the child will also most likely fit their body type at that period.

But kids with the same age can still have different sizes. A 10-year old kid from the US for example will have a different size compared to an Asian kid in the same age category.

To make sizing conversion for kids clothing more confusing, the US, UK and Australia, despite using the age to determine the size, have different measurement correspondent to age. A size 10 in US for example will tend to be slightly different than the size 10 in Australia.

So when it comes to finding the right size for your child, it’s still advisable to measure your child’s height and weight to get a more accurate sizing rather than just relying purely on age to determine their size. Despite this, some clothing companies still refer to their own sizing charts, so it is still best to always check first as sizes tend to be different everywhere.

What should I pay attention to when buying children’s clothing?

  • It is always good to look into your clothes and see how they have been processed: Are there seams, signs, etc. that scratch or press buttons?
  • Does the material feel pleasant and soft? Is it of good quality? Then the child will also like it!
  • With jeans and other tight pants made of firm material, think about the freedom of movement and also about the fact that a diaper bottom might have to fit in. So in case of doubt don’t buy any skinny jeans (or put on enough stretch).
  • In general: Check the garments for robustness and comfort.
