Sizing

General Size Guide

These measurements are garment averages, to be used as a general guide. Please check the individual size chart for each style (found at the bottom of each product page, and also linked below on this page) for actual garment measurements to confirm fit. Measurements are taken from pre-shrunk garments, new garments will be slightly larger before washing.

Little Deer clothing is designed to fit true-to-size for age, with an easy, roomy fit (we like things comfy). We take care to make sure sizing is consistent between styles and collections, so your child should generally wear the same size in all of our pieces.

Your child may fit into two or more sizes, depending on the preferred fit. For example: my 7-year-old wears the 7/8 but she can also wear the 5/6 in most styles (the dresses and pants are a bit shorter). My 2-year-old wears the 1/2 but can also wear the 3/4 in most styles. My 5-year-old can wear both 3/4 and 5/6. My 11-year-old wears both 9/10 and 11/12 tops, but prefers the looser fit of the 11/12 bottoms.
