For example, these tops below:
The one on the left is first size, and the one on the right is 6-9 months! I know the jumper is knitted so it’s a bit stretchier, but that is a huge difference in size. N was still fitting in this jumper at 4 months old whereas he was practically growing out of the other one already.
Even if I take two cotton t-shirts:
They are both 9-12 months. There is a huge difference between these two – the one on the right looks likes 3-6 months against the other. Can you guess which one N is outgrowing already?…
And of course it goes for adult clothing too – I often have to buy different sizes from different places. Though it does make me feel better when I have to buy a smaller size!
Of course the ideal option would be to have standard sizing across all brands & shops so we don’t have to buy different sizes from different places at the same clothes size, but that would be practically impossible to fulfill. So unfortunately we just have to plod on with the sizing issue. I know it’s a niggle of a thing to get frustrated with, but it is annoying, right?
Do you have the same problem?
