I have measured my child's chest but the sizing information is telling me I need to order a size which is younger/older than they are?

Most garments on our website are sized according to chest and waist measurement (in inches) rather than age. The sizing guidance provided on our website indicates the approximate ages for the different garment sizes, as provided by the supplier. However, these are only estimates as children of various ages will require a range of sizes based on their height and build. For example, if your child is measuring as 30” inch chest then I would advise selecting and purchasing garments in this size as this size will likely be the most appropriate for them.  


I am awaiting email correspondence from you but have not received anything?

If you are waiting to hear from us but have not received any emails, please kindly check your spam/junk email folders as our emails are often directed into these folders. If you have still not received anything, please feel free to contact us on 01527 545 555 for an update.

You will receive email confirmation to notify you when your return and refund have been completed.
