Size Guide

Our sizes are based on the age of the child ie. if they are 3 years old and of average build and height size 3 will most likely be the best fit for your child. If the child is tall or of a bigger build a size 4 may suit best.

The measurements below are garment measurements NOT the childs measurements
Body Length:
shoulder seam to the back bottom hem

Chest: right around the chest.
Shoulder to Shoulder: full width of the shoulders from seam to seam.
Sleeve Length: top of the arm right to the seam at the wrist
Waist: this is elasticed so stretches to fit the waist

If you are unsure about sizing, please get in touch with us by calling us on 0800 MERINO or emailing us at info@minimerino.co.nz and we will help advise you on the right size to choose for your child.
