Size Chart | How Do Baby Sizes Work?

The Truth About Size Charts

I had no idea why a size from one brand fit differently than another until I understood that there is no standard. Sizes are essentially meaningless. Each designer bases their sizes on their ideal customer. Because I fit a lot of mom's I make my hips a little larger.

Baby sizes tend not to deviate quite as much as women's clothing from the average. Baby sizes are usually listed by by age in the USA. If your baby is average you can be fairly safe picking clothing by based on their age. To be safe, always look at the measurements. Weight for babies is a good indicator. The NB or newborn size is typically listed as NB instead of 0 months.

Another fit issue to be aware of is that some designers prefer a tighter or looser fit and therefore even if you fit within their measurements, the fit may be different than what you want. Make sure to check out their styling and if you like baggy clothing and their fit appears to be tight you might want to jump up a size.

Remember that sizes are meaningless. Focus on the measurements. The reason everyone in Hollywood looks so fab in their clothing is because most stars don't even look at sizes but pull garments off a rack that they love and that fit the widest part of them. They then take it to a seamstress to customize it to their bods. They wear custom tailored clothing!
