Mini Size Charts (Children)

In order to work out the correct size for your child: measure your child and check these measurements against the body measurements in the sizing charts shown.

Childrens sizing

How to measure

  • Height: Measure from the top of head to the ground (without shoes).
  • Head: Measure around the fullest part of the head.
  • Chest: Measure around the fullest part of the chest.
  • Waist: Measure the natural waistline, just above the hip bone.
  • Hips: Measure around the fullest part of the seat.
  • Overarm: Measure from centre back neck down the arm to wrist.

Please note that all our clothes are generously cut and will fit up to the greater size of the dual sizing e.g. 6 years of the 5-6 years so there is no need to buy a larger size.

N.B. Do not pull the tape measure too tight.

Care Instructions

Unless indicated all garments (excluding shoes) are machine washable.

We do not normally like to recommend that our products be tumble-dried. This is because the heat can cause shrinkage and fading, and may shorten the lifespan of the garment, but most of our products can be tumble-dried with care. There are, however, a few products that must not be tumble-dried and these are clearly marked in the catalogue.

Indigo, denim and pigment dyed garments

Please note that all Indigo, Denim and Pigment dyed styles should be washed SEPARATELY i.e. on their own, before wearing. In addition, the dyeing process might cause garments to shed colour whilst being worn, until they have been washed several times. White or light coloured garments or upholstery are especially vulnerable. Boden cannot accept any liability if you do not comply with these instructions.
