13 types of fabric suitable for baby clothes & children’s clothes
Which Fabric is best for making clothes for kids (for babies as well as for older children)? This is a question that gets asked all the time.
Whenever a mom starts to make clothes it will not be for herself – it will always be first for her child. Finding the perfect fabric is one major hurdle she has to pass, especially as it is something that stays so close to her precious gem.
There are so many clothes you can make for kids – Little Girl Dresses, onesies and rompers, Smocked or embroidered Gowns, Bonnets, Blouses, pants, little skirts, shorts – there are so many things to make and you need the best of all fabrics for all these. Check out this post on sewing for children for some tips you can apply when sewing all these.
The first and foremost consideration when selecting fabric for sewing for your kid is that – it is soft and non-irritating. For a newborn, an extra consideration is that it should be comfortable against the cut umbilical cord. For older babies and kids, comfort and safety rank as the prime consideration. You also do not want the fabric to be clingy or slippery or thick – the fabric has to be breathable. The fabric also has to withstand many rounds of washing and also wear and tear from play and tumble, unless it is occasion wear.
Usually, the first choice for making kids’ clothes is Cotton. It ticks all the criteria I wrote earlier – like absorbency, breathability and comfort level. Organically made cotton tops even this, as it is made in a very eco-friendly environment without any of the chemicals used otherwise. Read more about organic cotton fabric here.
But simply going to the fabric store and asking for ‘Cotton’ is not going to do you any favour. There are so many types of cotton (about 90 types). An uninitiated person may be tricked into buying some seemingly smooth soft looking fabric which may be terribly unsuitable for kids’ clothing – it may pill heavily after the first wash or turn rough and irritate the kid’s skin or it may be made of synthetic fibers which can make the kid very uncomfortable
Same is the case if you buy synthetic fabrics. They stain easily and pill after even the first wash. Though they look soft at first, this is lost sooner than later.
Note: Whatever be the fabric you choose, never make clothes for kids without prewashing the fabric. Prewashing is done as a ritual by most sewists as a preparation before sewing but when sewing for kids it takes on another meaning. You get to remove most of the chemicals which are most probably sprayed on factory made fabric, this way, at least get an illusion of it.
The following cotton and other fabrics are popularly used to make baby clothes and older children’s clothes (depending on the rules of the land, ofcourse. For eg. in some countries like USA cotton is banned for making commercial kids sleepwear. More reading on this here)
1. Lawn Cotton
This lightweight soft 100% cotton fabric with a high thread count, is very much suitable for making kids’ clothes, especially baby clothes. ; it is somewhat transparent and has a slightly crisp feel but at the same time, it is very very soft to touch, as it is made of very fine thread. It is a popularly used fabric for making christening gowns.
Do you know that for small babies you need fabric that can dry fast (of course you do, silly question) – At the rate at which babies change clothes the dresses have to dry fast or you need an infinite wardrobe -which is one of the reasons mothers choose lightweight cotton/cotton blends for making baby clothes. Cotton Lawn fabric is lightweight if nothing else.
Voile is a semi-sheer fabric which is almost gauze-like. This is very similar to cotton lawn, but thinner and more see-through and somewhat crisp. But it is also free-flowing. It is a very suitable fabric to make little dresses. A swiss voile with dots has the dots woven into the sheer background. You can use this fabric for smocking as the dots aid in pleating and smocking.
This fabric, which is lightweight and smooth can be a cotton or cotton blend. Choose the cotton for making clothes for babies. The cotton broadcloth has a lustrous surface texture with a fine rib effect. You can make gowns and dresses with this fabric. Small kid tops and dresses in this fabric embellished with fine embroidery can be seen in retail showrooms
4. Handkerchief linen
This is a lovely very soft lightweight semi-sheer linen. The fabric has a slight texture to its surface (slubs) This is an heirloom project staple. As it is linen, expect the elegance of linen but with a soft feel (a cotton/ linen blend will come without all that wrinkling natural to linen). This fabric is perfect for making christening gowns. As it is lightweight you can sew dresses with gathers, peats, as well as smocking without the unwanted bulk.
This is a cotton fabric available in many different weights – from very thin to somewhat dense, even coarse. The thin muslin is great for making baby clothes as you do not get more breathable fabric than this, it being 100% cotton. Muslin is usually used for making cloth diaper covers, swaddle clothes, burp cloths etc rather than clothes as it is not very glamourous looking. This fabric is very suitable for lining and for making petticoats to wear under dresses.
Gauze is a cotton muslin fabric with a slightly wrinkled look. It is open weave, airy and very breathable. Single gauze and double gauze fabrics are available. Depending on its make, gauze can be very soft.
This is a cotton open weave fabric which is very soft. It is not transparent like voile, or lawn fabric. This fabric is very durable compared to other cotton fabric and at the same time very comfortable to wear as it is super soft. The lightweight of the fabric also makes it a winner. Swiss batiste fabric is a favourite fabric for making baby dresses and nightgowns.
7. Eyelet cotton or Broderie anglaise fabric
There is nothing more beautiful than embroidery on fabric . Isn’t it great that with eyelet and Broderie Anglaise fabric you get fabric with embroidery already done on it. They are great for kids dresses, nightgowns. They can be used to make the garment themselves or as trims or accents like yokes, pockets etc.
8. Jersey knit fabric
Cotton jersey knit fabric is a favourite for baby and children’s clothes They are soft and breathable. Another advantage over woven clothes is that jersey knits are stretchy. Knit is very accommodative of constant body movements and growth spurts; you know how kids grow. Other favourite knit fabrics for making children’s clothing include interlock, double knit, cotton spandex. Know more about the 12 different types of knit fabrics here.
Light fleece fabric is a good choice for kids’ winter clothes. Fleece is used as an alternative to wool. It is moisture-wicking and keeps the body warm. Unlike wool, fleece is easy to maintain as it is machine washable and dries fast. Make swaddle blankets or kid jackets. Learn more about fleece fabric here.
10. Microfiber fabrics
This is a new type of fabric which is very soft and non-allergenic. For kids who have very sensitive skin, this is a great choice.
11. Fabric with pile/nap
Terrycloth is such a pile fabric; you can use this highly absorbent fabric to make robes, cloth diapers etc. Others like corduroy, brushed denim, flannel, velveteen, velour are all favourites.
12. Bamboo rayon
Bamboo material is an ultra soft yet durable rayon fiber made from cellulose derived from bamboo plants. It is organically made and is supposed to have non-allergenic properties which make the eco-conscious parents choose this fabric over others. It’s great for sensitive skin and is thermal-regulating, meaning that it will adjust to a child’s body temperature and consequently the body is, less likely to become too hot.
13. Waterproof fabrics
If you are looking for fabric for making cloth diapers, diaper covers, blankets, washable bed pads, training pants, wet bags, nursing pads, bibs you may need a fabric that will be waterproof. For this, you can buy Polyurethane Laminated Polyester (used on the outside of cloth diapers and diaper covers), Vinyl-backed Terry cloth etc. Ensure that the cloth you buy is breathable or the kid will be uncomfortable.

It may be tempting to buy pretty printed fabrics in polyester and nylon or sequins knits as well as add trims like synthetic lace and crinoline petticoats.But before you take out the purse, think about your kid, first.
Remember that a child’s skin is very delicate and she / he does not care that the pretty dress she is wearing is dazzling to others- the kid just wants a comfortable dress in which she can run around, free as a bird. The fabric you select go a long way in making her feel that way. So choose wisely rather than be tempted by the synthetic brigade, pretty nevertheless.

The Best Labels for Kids Lunch Boxes and Clothing in 2021
Name Bubbles School Labels Pack
These versatile labels have a powerful adhesive and are the only ones we looked at that include an option for marking tagless clothing.
*At the time of publishing, the price was $36.
Like the other preprinted labels we tested, the labels in the Name Bubbles school pack take just seconds to apply. Unlike some of the others we looked at, they have a powerful adhesive that stays put on the items that kids use most, but they’re still simple to remove when needed. The company is the only custom-printed option we found with stick-on labels specifically designed to go directly onto tagless clothes.
Label Daddy Starter School Pack
Label Daddy makes ordering easier than any other company we looked at, and the company’s starter pack is well-designed, with shapes and sizes that are just right for kids’ stuff. The labels for clothing are made to go on tags only, however.
In its Starter School Pack, Label Daddy uses the same strong adhesive film as Name Bubbles and includes a great variety of sizes and shapes as well as a fun series of personalization options (from electric blue llamas to frenchie puppies) without having so many designs to choose from that it makes you dizzy. The website’s ordering process is the most straightforward of all those we tested, but unlike the clothing labels offered by Name Bubbles, Label Daddy’s are designed to go on tags only.
Avery No-Iron Fabric Labels
These write-on labels adhered well to everything we stuck them on, and they can go directly on fabric, but they’ll leave a sticky mess if you try to take them off.
If your own handwriting is up to snuff and you don’t mind the extra work, the most affordable option we tested—blank Avery No-Iron Kids Clothing Labels—has the firmest seal directly on fabric and also sticks extremely well to nylon, plastic, and metal. These labels are the hardest to remove cleanly, however.
12 Ways to Save Money on Cheap Kids’ Clothes for Boys & Girls
As any parent will tell you, young children grow like weeds. They’re continually outgrowing their clothes, making new clothes a significant expense for parents. A 2021 survey by the National Retail Federation found that the average family that year expected to spend $253 on back-to-school clothes shopping alone.
If that number sounds unreasonably high to you, perhaps you haven’t looked at prices for kids’ clothing lately. In the children’s wear sections at department stores like Macy’s, you can pay $30 to $60 for sweaters, $25 to $50 for jeans, and $50 to $200 for special-occasion dresses. It would be easy to rack up a tab of hundreds of dollars in a single shopping trip at those prices.
If you’re fed up with spending that much on clothes your kids are going to outgrow in months, there are two primary ways to avoid it. First, use smart shopping strategies to spend less on your child’s wardrobe each year. And second, make your kids’ clothes last longer to avoid running back to the store in the middle of the year to replace them.
Buying Kids’ Clothes for Less
For adults, buying clothes as cheaply as possible isn’t always a good deal. It often costs less in the long run to pay more upfront for quality clothing that will last for years. But for growing children, that isn’t usually a good plan. Young kids will outgrow those new, high-quality clothes long before they wear them out, and the extra money you spent on them will just go to waste.
When shopping for kids’ clothes, the wisest approach is usually to pay as little as possible for each garment. To do that, you need to think outside the box about where, when, and how to shop.
1. Buy Pieces, Not Outfits
When you walk into a children’s clothing store or department, the first thing you see is usually a group of child-size mannequins in adorable matching outfits. For instance, you might see one mannequin dressed in crisp pants, a polo shirt, striped sweater, and matching hat next to another in a colorful blouse, plaid jumper, cardigan, and cute hair clips.
Stores set up their displays that way on purpose to trick you into buying more. They hope that once you see how cute all those pieces look together, you’ll feel like you have to buy the complete set.
The problem is these neatly coordinated garments don’t always go with the clothes already in your child’s wardrobe. If that cute little hat only looks good with that specific polo shirt and striped sweater, it will spend most of its time sitting unused in the closet. A single cute outfit isn’t nearly as practical as mix-and-match pieces your kid can wear with many outfits.
Instead of springing for the set, look at each piece individually and think about how much use your child could get out of it. If that plaid jumper would coordinate well with half a dozen shirts your child already owns, great — you can buy it and get six new outfits instead of just one. But if the colorful blouse displayed with it really wouldn’t go with anything but the jumper, ignore it.
2. Check Out Clearance
To save even more money, skip over those collections in the front of the store altogether. Instead, head straight to the back of the store, where the clearance racks are. Stores regularly move merchandise that hasn’t sold to this section to make room for new collections. To get it off their shelves, they mark it down to temptingly low prices.
Even during a store-wide sale, the prices in the clearance section are typically even lower. Blogger Brandi Michel of Imperfectly Perfect Mama reports that the teaser prices in the front of the store are generally no more than 20% to 30% off the original retail price, while the clearance section typically boasts markdowns of 50% to 70%.
Better still, discounts at store-wide sales sometimes apply to the goods in the clearance section as well. If a $20 set of pajamas has already been marked down by 70% and the sale takes off another 30%, you can pick it up for only $4.20 — just 21% of the original price.
3. Shop Out of Season
Clothes often end up on the clearance rack because they’re out of season. Stores receive new shipments for the upcoming season, such as lightweight spring clothing in February, several times per year. To make room for them, they mark down the clothes for the season that’s ending — in this case, winter coats and other cold-weather gear — to get them off their shelves.
Since these end-of-season sales usually take place a month or two before the season ends, you can pick up discounted winter clothes your kids can wear as long as the cold weather lasts in February. And if you buy the apparel in slightly larger sizes than your kids currently need, there’s a good chance they’ll still be able to wear it when next winter rolls around.
Alternatively, you can take advantage of these end-of-season sales to get a head start on your shopping for next year. Instead of buying clothes in your kids’ current sizes, look for pieces that are one or two sizes too big.
Michel recommends choosing clothes at least one size larger than the size you think your kids will need next year since they usually always grow faster than you expect. For kids who are in the middle of a growth spurt, go even larger. This strategy doesn’t work well with baby clothes, as babies grow so fast you simply can’t predict what their size will be next year.
4. Visit Discount Retailers
When it comes to getting discounts, where you shop matters just as much as when you shop. Several types of retail stores offer much better prices on kids’ clothing than name-brand boutiques and department stores. These include:
- Discount Superstores. Big-box discount stores like Target and Walmart sell clothes for children at more reasonable prices than other department stores. For instance, in Walmart’s children’s section, you can find jeans for $7 to $45, short-sleeved and long-sleeved T-shirts for $3 to $16, and sweaters for $7 to $26.
- Off-Price Retailers. Off-price retailers such as T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, and Burlington buy up manufacturers’ overstock — excess clothing and other goods they couldn’t sell to other retailers — at prices below their regular wholesale price. Then they pass the discount on to shoppers. TJX, the parent company of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, says prices in its stores are typically 20% to 60% below regular retail.
- Liquidation Stores. Liquidation stores, such as Big Lots, buy merchandise other stores can’t sell. Some of it comes from stores that are moving or going out of business, some is slightly damaged or irregular, and some just didn’t sell. Liquidators sell these goods to consumers at rock-bottom prices. You need to check clothes to ensure they’re in wearable condition, but many pieces are completely undamaged and ridiculously cheap.
Pro tip: When shopping in-store, make sure you use the Ibotta app. With Ibotta, you’ll earn cash back at more than 300 different retailers. Another way to earn cash back on purchases is with the Drop app.
5. Hit the Thrift Shop
One of the best ways to find kids clothes cheap is to buy them secondhand. Because kids grow so fast, they often outgrow their clothes long before they wear them out, so you can find previously worn garments at thrift stores that are still in excellent condition. Sometimes, consignment shops even have brand-new clothing that kids have rejected for some reason.
Some parents find the idea of dressing their kids in another child’s used clothes somewhat off-putting. However, germs shouldn’t be an issue as long as you wash everything before putting it into your child’s wardrobe.
If the idea still makes you uncomfortable, start small. One particularly good category to shop secondhand is special-occasion clothing, such as holiday dress clothing, which your child will only wear once or twice. Once you discover what excellent deals you can find, you’re likely to feel more comfortable branching out into everyday wear like shirts, pants, and shoes.
When shopping secondhand for kids, check garments carefully to make sure they’re in good condition. Minor problems like a torn seam or a missing button don’t have to be deal-breakers if you can fix them yourself. However, put back any attire that’s noticeably stained or threadbare.
To find thrift shops, search the Internet for “thrift stores near me” or consult the websites of some large resale chains. Big chains that sell both kids and adult clothing include Goodwill, Salvation Army, Savers, and Value Village. Sellers specializing in previously loved kids clothing include Children’s Orchard, Kid to Kid, Kid’s Closet Connection, and Once Upon a Child.
6. Try Garage Sales
When it comes to prices, thrift shops are a mixed bag. However, there’s one source of secondhand children’s clothing that offers consistent bargains: garage sales.
It’s not always easy to find the exact garments your kids need at a yard sale. Sellers don’t always display their wares effectively, so you may have to rummage through an unsorted pile of clothes. However, anything you manage to find is likely to be dirt cheap. According to a price guide from Angi (formerly Angie’s List), most apparel sells for no more than $1 per piece.
Like end-of-season sales, garage sales are a fantastic place to stock up on clothes ahead of time. As long as you have enough storage space at home, you can pick up bargain-priced garments for your kids in sizes you don’t expect them to grow into for years.
Amy Dacyczyn, author of “The Complete Tightwad Gazette,” kept an entire “filing system” in her attic for kids clothes, with separate boxes for boys and girls of every age, from toddler to teen. She stocked these boxes with yard sale finds and hand-me-downs and always had clothes available for her six children to grow into.
7. Find Online Sellers
If there are no good thrift stores in your area, consider shopping online for secondhand clothing. On sites like Kidizen, eBay, Swap.com, and ThredUp, parents sell their kids’ outgrown and unwanted clothes for extra cash or store credit. While prices vary by size and garment type, you can find many items for under $10.
One downside of shopping online is that you can’t examine clothing hands-on the way you can in a store. To avoid unpleasant surprises, read all product descriptions carefully. When possible, look at the exact garment dimensions and the size on the label to make sure it will fit your child. Check out the materials and washing instructions as well.
You can also use the Internet to find sellers in your area who want to pass along their kids’ used clothes. Just search for what you need on your local Craigslist group or Facebook Marketplace. You can even find cast-off children’s clothing free on Freecycle.
It’s wise to take some precautions when buying from local sellers. Arrange to meet in a public place rather than walking into a stranger’s home. On Freecycle, you can often arrange a “porch pickup,” collecting items from the donor’s front stoop rather than going inside.
8. Hand Clothes Down
The only thing better than getting your kids’ clothes cheap is getting them completely free. The easiest way to do that is by handing down clothes from older children to younger ones — both within your own family and in cooperation with friends or neighbors.
If you have two children of the same gender, it’s easy to save the older one’s outgrown clothes to hand down to the younger one. Doing this with children of opposite genders can be trickier, but it’s possible in some cases.
Many simple garments, such as jeans and T-shirts, look and fit much the same on all preteen children. Winter coats and accessories also tend to be gender-neutral. However, as children get older and their body shapes begin to change (or one child gets significantly taller than the other), fewer garments can change hands as effectively.
If you can’t hand down clothes within your own family, consider having clothing swaps with other families in your area. At these events, you bring in your children’s outgrown clothing and trade it in for new-to-you clothes in the sizes your kids need.
Schools and churches sometimes organize large-scale clothing swaps to help local parents save on clothing. You can find events like this through Craigslist and Facebook. If there aren’t any sales in your area, consider getting together with other parents you know to start your own. You can take turns hosting and chat with the other parents while “shopping” for your children.
When your youngest child has outgrown a garment, it can still help you out one last time. You can either trade it to another family or sell it to raise some extra money for this year’s clothes. If you don’t have a resale shop in your area that takes kids clothes, you can sell them at a garage sale, on eBay, or at an online consignment shop such as ThredUp.
Making Kids Clothes Last Longer
When you’re trying to spend as little as possible on kids clothes, buying them for less is only part of the equation. You also want to get as much use as possible out of every piece before you need to replace it. Several strategies can help you do just that.
9. Choose Versatile Clothes
Every year when the holiday season rolls around, clothing stores try to tempt parents with an array of seasonal outfits for their kids. Unfortunately, your child can only wear that little red velvet dress with the white cuffs or plaid vest and matching bow tie once or twice during the holiday season. And by next year, they won’t fit anymore.
A better bet is to buy just one special-occasion outfit for your child that can work for any event throughout the year. A dress in a non-season-specific style or a nice pair of pants and a dress shirt can work just as well for other holidays, parties, weddings, and picture day at your kids’ school.
If you have (or plan to have) more than one child, it’s also a good idea to choose gender-neutral clothing for your oldest child whenever possible. That way, you can hand clothes down to girls and boys alike.
For instance, if you’re buying jeans for your daughter, choose plain denim instead of a pair decorated with pink and purple sequins on the pockets. If she wants her outfit to look more feminine, you can jazz it up with accessories like headbands or jewelry.
This tip is particularly useful for winter coats, which can be quite expensive to buy new. Buy them in gender-neutral colors like brown, navy, or tan, and avoid excessively feminine or masculine styles unless you already know both children prefer them.
10. Have Separate Clothes for School & Play
The kids’ play clothes don’t have to be as nice as their school uniforms or other school clothes. In fact, it’s probably a good thing if they aren’t. Play clothes take a lot more abuse from vigorous activities like climbing trees, rolling down hills, or falling off scooters.
If your kids subject their school clothes to that kind of treatment, they’re likely to get torn, stained, or worn out, and then you’ll have to shell out money for expensive replacements. To avoid this problem, make sure your children have separate clothes for school and play.
Inexpensive pieces like T-shirts, sweatpants, leggings, and shorts all make suitable playwear. When your kids get home from school, make them change into these less expensive clothes before going out to play. That way, it won’t matter so much if they come home covered in grass stains or with holes in the knees of their pants.
11. Wash Clothes Carefully
Another way to prolong the life of your kids’ clothes is to handle them with care when doing your laundry. For example:
Read the Label
Pay attention to the washing instructions on your children’s clothes (and your own, for that matter). As a rule, the water temperature listed on the label is the hottest the clothes can tolerate. If it says, “Machine wash warm,” cold water is OK, but hot water is not. Also, use the delicate cycle if the washing label calls for it.
Separate Whites and Colors
The dyes in colored clothes aren’t always colorfast. Some of them can run during laundering, especially if you use hot water. Wash bright-colored and dark-colored apparel in cold water, and avoid washing them with white clothes or you could end up with a bunch of pink socks.
Certain clothing, such as cotton shirts, are prone to shrinkage and other damage if you leave them in the dryer too long, according to Good Housekeeping. Overdrying is an even more significant risk with children’s clothes since they’re small and tend to dry quickly.
To avoid damaging them, don’t run the full dry cycle. Pull the clothes out when they’re mostly dry but not hot, and let the air evaporate any remaining moisture.
Prevent Static Safely
According to the University of Georgia (UGA) College of Family and Consumer Sciences, a buildup of static electricity in the dryer can damage clothes, especially acrylic sweaters. You can prevent it by using fabric softener or dryer sheets, but CNET warns that the chemicals in these products can be irritating and possibly damaging to your clothes or your dryer.
Instead, soften clothes by adding either vinegar or baking soda to the rinse cycle. To disperse static, put balls of aluminum foil in the dryer.
Air-Dry When Possible
According to UGA, some types of fabric, such as wool and rubber (found in the soles of shoes), should not go in the dryer at all. Always dry these garments flat or hang them on a line.
In fact, Good Housekeeping advises that line-drying can extend the life of all your clothes since the heat and tumbling motion of the dryer tend to wear them out faster. Air-drying also eliminates static cling, saves energy, and gives clothes a clean, fresh smell.
12. Learn Basic Sewing Skills
No matter how careful you are, you can’t entirely avoid damage to your children’s clothes. Even the best-kept clothes can suffer a torn seam here or a lost button there. However, that doesn’t have to make the garment unwearable. If you have basic sewing skills, you can easily stitch up that seam or replace that button and make the piece look as good as new.
Having basic sewing skills doesn’t mean being able to make whole outfits for your kids from scratch. It doesn’t even mean knowing how to use a sewing machine. All you need is such elementary skills as threading a needle, sewing a straight stitch, and adding a button. You can ask any experienced sewer to show you these techniques or pick them up from online tutorials.
As your sewing skills improve, you can branch out into slightly more complicated tasks like patching and minor alterations. These can help you save money on clothing in several ways, such as:
- Extending the life of a pair of pants by reinforcing the knees
- Letting out the hem to lengthen a dress or pant legs that have become too short
- Taking in the waistband on a hand-me-down pair of pants or skirt that’s too big
- Repurposing worn-out clothes by turning pants into shorts or long-sleeved shirts into short-sleeved ones
As your kids get older, you can involve them more in the process of shopping for themselves. Not only will they be happier with the clothes when they help pick them out, but they’ll also get a chance to observe all the strategies you use for saving money on them. These tips and tricks will be invaluable when they’re living on their own.
By the time they reach their teens, your kids may even be ready to do all their own shopping. Take all the money you’ve budgeted for their clothes for the year, divide it up into monthly portions, and give it to them as a clothing allowance.
Once your teenage children understand that this money has to cover all their clothing purchases and that no amount of begging will get Mom or Dad to buy them anything extra, you may be amazed to see how good they become at stretching their clothing dollars.
Size Charts for Kids: Clothing, Shirt, Pants, etc.
Shopping for kids clothes can be a real nightmare. Kids grow up fast, and it gets really hard trying to monitor their current kids clothes size because they keep on changing. It also doesn’t help that there is no required universal children’s clothing size guide that all clothing manufacturers and retailers must follow. To have a fighting chance against this huge predicament, this site provides a helpful guide to finding the right fit for the most common types of kids’ clothes.
Kids Sizes at a Glance
- When it comes to finding the right fit, it’s far better to take your child’s height and weight into consideration than just simply relying on age. However, the best way is to take accurate measurements of your kid’s body using a cloth measuring tape. You may then refer to a size chart to know the corresponding clothing size to your child’s measurements.
- American sizes, along with British and Australian clothing sizes, are traditionally based on age. The rest of Europe, on the other hand, have sizing guides based on height.
- International size conversions are merely approximations as apparel companies tend to make clothes based on their own version of standard sizing.
- In the United States, clothes for toddlers and small children use age to name different size classifications. The sizes are typically based on the weight and height of the child but specific measurements for the chest, waist, and hip are also provided.
- For older kids, the size guide for males is different from the one used for females.
- Check out our Mexican Kids Sizes, Asian Kids Sizes and European Kids Sizes guides.
- Shoe Sizes for Kids can be found here.
U.S. Children’s Clothing Sizes
In the United States, clothes for toddlers and small children use the age to name different size classifications. The clothing sizes are typically determined by the height and weight of the child but specific measurements for the chest, waist, and hips are also provided. For older kids, the size guide for males is different from the one used for females.
Toddlers & Small Kids Sizing Chart
The chart below provides an overview to US sizes for young children, boys and girls. The clothing sizes are determined by weight in pounds and height in inches. The “T” found next to size numbers stands for “Toddler.” For this age group, the size guide for boys and girls is the same because children have yet to develop masculine or feminine body shapes at this point in their lives.6 Sizes only start to separate by gender after size 6X.
|Preemie||Up to 17||Up to 5|
|Newborn||17-1/2 – 21||5-1/2 – 7-1/2|
|0 – 3M||20-1/2 – 23||6-1/2 – 12|
|3 – 6M||23-1/2 – 26||12-1/2 – 16|
|6 – 9M||26-1/2 – 27-1/2||16-1/2 – 19|
|12 Month||28 – 29-1/2||19-1/2 – 22|
|18 Month||30 – 31-1/2||22-1/2 – 26|
|24 Month||32 – 33-1/2||26-1/2 – 30|
|2T||32 – 33-1/2||26-1/2 – 30|

|4T||38 – 41-1/2||34-1/2 – 38|
|5T||42 – 44-1/2||38-1/2 – 42|
Clothing Size Charts for Girls
Measurements aside from weight are more useful in figuring out the clothing size of older children. In fact, the body proportions of children in this age group are so varied that some brands have even made further distinctions between tall-, regular-, and plus-sized children. Determining clothing sizes for girls are even more difficult since their body parts like the chests and hips develop at different paces.
|4||4/5 (XS)||39 – 41-1/2||23||21||23|
|5||4/5 (XS)||42 – 44-1/2||24||21-1/2||24|

Children’s Jeans & Pants Size Charts
To find well-fitting pants or jeans for your child, measure the fullest part of his hips, his natural waist (near the bellybutton), his inseam (situated along the inside leg; measured from the center of the crotch to the floor), and his height. Match your child’s measurements to the specific size charts of the clothing brand you patronize. Options are not limited to regular sizes. Some retailers offer slim sizes as well as plus (“husky” for boys) sizes. The ideal pants should not pucker around the crotch area and must have extra breathing room around the waist.

Kids Clothing Size Conversion Chart
International clothing sizes have different measurements from each other. American, UK, and Australian clothing sizes are traditionally the same because they are all based on age. European clothing sizes for kids, on the other hand, are different because they are based on height. Conversion charts are helpful when it comes determining your child’s clothing size in other countries.
|US Size||Child Age||Height (Inch)||Height (CM)||EU Size||UK Size|
However, keep in mind that these size conversions are merely approximations as apparel companies tend to make clothes based on their own version of standard sizing.
What is large in one brand may be converted as XL in another. A US size 2T may be theoretically the same as the European size 92-98 cm but in reality, it may be a bit bigger than the latter.
To get the most accurate conversion of clothing sizes, rely on sizing charts that contain specific body measurements. All you would need to do is to convert from one unit of measure (inches) to another (centimeters).
How to measure Kids Sizes
Clothing sizes vary and for children’s apparel, they are usually labeled according to the child’s age. However, when it comes to finding the right fit, it’s far better to take your child’s height and weight into consideration than just simply relying on age. The best way, of course, is to take accurate measurements of your kid’s body using a cloth measuring tape.
Children’s measurements should only be taken over their bare skin or while they are wearing skin-tight clothes. For tops and dresses, record your child’s chest, waist, and sometimes hip measurements. For dress shirts, including neck and sleeve measurements.
For bottoms like trousers and jeans, measure the waist, hips, and inseam. You may then refer to a size chart to know the corresponding clothing size to your child’s measurements. Clothing sizes found in generic charts can be a good reference but it’s best to rely on the size chart of specific brands or retailers that you patronize.
Is there such a thing as standard children clothing sizes?
Various countries have established their own standards when it comes to classifying clothing sizes. However, in the case of the United States, there is no hard-and-fast rule when it comes to standardizing and classifying clothing sizes in the ready-to-wear clothing industry. The U.S. government once tried to establish a system in 1958 and even made it a commercial standard, but it was eventually degraded to a voluntary standard until it was abolished altogether. Nowadays, clothing brands enjoy some degree of liberty in defining the measurement range of their clothing sizes though many also observe the voluntary standards recommended by private organization ASTM International. However, with more countries opening its doors to other nations, there is now a serious call for international standardization when it comes to clothes, with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) at the helm in producing said standards. Unfortunately, there are those who believe that setting a standard is difficult because people are growing bigger now, which means clothing sizes should be getting bigger too.
Can you rely on sizes?
The truth is size charts today are not universal and clothing sizes are inconsistent. As for whether you can still rely on clothing sizes, the answer is you can, but not as much as you may have hoped. If you already have specific clothing brands you are loyal to, then you can easily use their sizing charts as guides for buying clothes for your child. However, if you’re unfamiliar with a brand and relying on a generic size chart in selecting clothes for your kid, then you may find clothing sizes to be not as helpful. In the end, it’s better to have something to rely on even if it’s only reliable up to a certain extent than not to have any guide at all.
21 Brands for Cool, Gender Neutral Baby Clothes
If you have a son, you already know what I’m about to say is true. Cool / cute boy clothes are WAY more difficult to find than girl clothes. It’s just a fact.
When I found out we were having a boy (back in 2018), I couldn’t have been more excited. Boys are way more my speed than girls, to be honest. But what I quickly learned about having a boy was that I was going to have to search MUCH harder than I thought to find cute / cool baby clothes for boys.
Cute girls clothes are a dime a dozen…you can find those anywhere it seems…even Target has some cute baby girl stuff. But boys stuff – it’s just not easy to find….at least for the style of clothing that I like. I don’t generally like kid’s clothing that has illustrations on it, but especially don’t love the typical trucks, cars, and dino motifs that seem to be on nearly every mainstream boy item around.
BUT, good news! Once I started finding brands and shops that carried things I was drawn to, I realized that nearly every single thing I like also happens to be gender neutral. Which honestly made me like them even more, for many reasons really. But one of the obvious ones is that if we have more kids and end up having any girls, they’ll still be able to reuse literally anything that our son has worn.
So, I started searching online and on trips when we would go somewhere new (pre-Covid obviously) and eventually put together a pretty big list of brands and shops with awesome gender neutral baby clothes. I mentioned this one day on my stories and got soooo many DMs from moms asking where I shop. So today I’m sharing the BIG list! Here’s my list of cool, gender neutral baby clothes – broken down into shops AND specific brands to make it easy.
Quick note before I get into everything…Some of the brands that I buy can be on the pricier end because I really prefer to buy good quality stuff that I can keep for future babies and (hopefully) pass down to my baby’s babies whenever that time comes. My mom did this with some of my clothes and I am so grateful to have some of those pieces for Hayes.
But also, the high quality stuff just doesn’t fall apart as easily. Which means I can buy less clothing than I would have to if my kid was wearing cheap stuff that only gets a handful of wears until it’s almost not wearable anymore.
I completely recognize that going this route is not everyone’s cup of tea. BUT I feel good about supporting small businesses. And there’s always the sale section, right?! I’ve scored so many super cute outfits for the baby by shopping the sale section of the brands and shops below. And then when something in the full price category is just too cute to resist, I’ll pick that up too. It’s a balancing act, for sure. So keep that in mind…
Gender Neutral Baby Clothes: Online Shops with Lots of Brands
This online shop has SO many good brands to shop, it may take you a while to get through it all. Check out the Smallable outlet section too for really good deals. P.S. Jeff and I visited their concept store a couple of years ago in Paris and it is amazing if you can ever go! There’s another little baby shop just a few doors down from it too that is very chic Paris baby, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I love Bitte! Their selection is really well curated and they have loads more than just baby and kids clothing. Their toys, books, and dwelling items are all great too.
3. Taylor + Max
I shared this online kids shop recently with some other Black owned businesses I love, but I wanted to share it here too. Taylor + Max carries brands I absolutely love (and maybe you do to) – like Misha and Puff, Olli Ella, 1+ In The Family, and Quincy Mae.
Another good one. Like Smallable, Maisonette carries LOTS of great kids clothing brands, toys, decor, and more.
5. Noble Carriage
Another great shop! Noble Carriage sells baby and kids clothes (and other goods – like toys) that are organic and sustainably produced. I personally love that and try to buy ethically made clothing (for myself and for Hayes) whenever possible. I’m not perfect, and it doesn’t always happen, but I continue to work at it, and I love shops like this one that are committed to that mission.
6. Darling Clementine
I can always find something good here for baby boys and they ship super quick!
7. Vincent’s Threads
This is one of my secret gems. Great vintage pieces at super affordable prices. I’ve bought a few pairs of overalls from here and the cutest little vintage sneakers.
8. Seed Factory
This is a local Atlanta shop that I used too go to pretty frequently for when we still lived there. They have great clothes and toys – and an online shop too. So, you don’t need to live there to shop there.
Gender Neutral Baby Clothes: Brands I Love
1. Bobo Choses
Probably one of my favorite baby / kids brands. They have tons of cool stuff for boys (and girls) and are based in Spain. You can find the brand all over Europe…but it’s not as widely spread here in the states. I snagged a bunch of stuff on our last trip to London and Amsterdam and order online from a few places that ship to the states. Although, I’ve been seeing it pop up more and more recently here too.
It’s not all gender-neutral BUT a lot of it is! And I’m also the type of person that is not afraid to put a boy in pink and a girl in blue. So, I still kind of consider even the gendered stuff from Bobo to be neutral enough for boys AND girls.
I think my sister-in-law introduced me to Mabo when she was pregnant with her son, and I thought everything was so sweet and simple. Good quality neutrals and everything is designed and manufactured in the USA. I really like the fit on their clothing too – it fits more snug than other brands, which I personally love.
Love this brand! I got these little knit shorts and also really want this sweater (the colors!!). Also love their overall onesies…again the colors!
4. Go Gently
Great gender neutral basics for boys and girls, made of organic cotton in Los Angeles (yep, USA made). Everything that Hayes has from Go Gently is something he wears over and over again – good quality, soft, and cute (but simple).
5. Misha and Puff
They have adorable hand knit clothing for babies, kids, and women. Because the items are hand knit, they’re not cheap (as you can imagine). BUT it’s so worth it to have one or two heirloom pieces from MP if you can swing it. They also carry some dresses and skirts, but many of the pieces (tops, sweaters, shorts, rompers, etc) are gender neutral. And all of it is adorable!
If the price tag isn’t quite in your budget, they also offer some of their styles in purchasable patterns right here. So, if you knit, or have someone in your family that wants to make something for baby, send them here. Super cute stuff! I sent my mom this link when she was looking for something to knit for the baby and while she ended up going with something else, it was super helpful in establishing a style that I liked, etc.
6. Fin & Vince
Great basics, solid colors, and earthy tones. All of the Fin & Vince pieces Hayes has feel like classic, vintage styles (even though they’re new) and look good with pretty much anything they’re paired with. He wears a couple of the vintage style tees from them a lot!
7. Hey Gang
Super cute clothes (I am especially fond of the chore coats and coveralls) that can be chainstitches with your kiddos name!
8. James Street Co
Hayes has a few James Street Co hats and I get asked about them whenever he wears one. They’re beanies and have a cute little pointed top and I love the colors. Bonus! It’s all made in America.
9. Tiny Cottons
This is a Barcelona based kids brand that’s is playful and cool. The patterns range from which and design-y to quirky and fun and the quality is really good quality too. So far, I’ve bought a few bibs from Tiny Cottons, along with a couple of pairs of pants and tops.
Red Creek Kids
Cool linen kids clothes that are made to last! I love the simple silhouettes at Red Creek Kids – pretty timeless. Making them the type of thing that you can pass down from kid to kid and it will still look cool and current.
11. Jamie Kay
This New Zealand based brand is adorable. Hayes has a JK jumper and a whole bunch of socks too (great neutral colors).
This brand was started by two mothers in Melbourne and is all about basic seasonless apparel for babies and toddlers (inspired by Japanese design).
13. Mebie Baby
Affordable basics for babies. Most of their bodysuit / onesies are around the $20 mark and come in cool, muted colors. And they also have swaddles, blankets, and crib sheets.
I first became familiar with Oeuf years and years ago as a furniture line for babies and kids. And later discovered they also make cute clothes too and are based in NYC.
Really cute minimalist basics in neutral / earthy colors. Everything is ethically made and organic too.
16. Quincy Mae
The sister company to Rylee and Cru – everything from Quincy Mae is made with organic cotton. They have great basics for everyday and pjs. The staples that I buy from them are the ribbed bloomers, ribbed leggings, and ribbed onesies. They’re all so, so soft!
17. Soor Ploom
If you’re a linen fan, you’ll like this brand. Most of the clothing at Soor Ploom is geared towards girls, but they have some basics that work great for boys too – mainly the rompers.
18. North of West
Another cute brand for boys (and girls). They have baby and kids sizes, along with womens and home.
19. Kid Wild
Another great organic, gender neutral company for baby clothes. Hayes had a few of their bodysuits and drawstring pants.
20. Pulp Co
The coolest handmade hats for babies, kids, and adults. Hayes has a few of these hats and they are THE best! They’re made ethically / responsibly, and toxic free with organic materials. And they’re also really cute.
New Kids in the Hood
NKitH makes super cool hats for kids too.
22. Rudy Jude
Plant dyed essentials for the entire family – babies, kids, men, and women. I love Rudy Jude – the clothes and the mission. And there is a Rudy Jude shop in Venice, right next to Older Brother, if you’re in LA.
Shopping Good Quality Baby / Kids Clothes at a Discount
And then as a last little mention, I also have had some good luck finding cute stuff in some less likely places you may not have thought to look, that I wanted to mention, since they’re more budget-friendly…
1) Thrift stores and consignment stores might be a place you haven’t thought to explore yet. There’s obv going to be a lot more ‘not cute’ stuff to sift through. BUT the prices are so good, it’s worth it if you find a few things. And if you’re looking for vintage specifically, you might really find something cool! Buying things secondhand is also good for the environment, and speaking of which…
2) I’m very into Noihsaf.kiddos on Instagram right now. Which is an IG account where you can buy and sell kid’s clothes (and MANY of the brands on the list above are being sold through that account). There’s also a bunch of other categories outside of kiddos. Go to Noihsaf Bazaar for more info on all the categories. I’ve bought and sold through here before. Highly recommend.
Poshmark, Kidizen, and The Real Real also have great discounted (pre-loved) stuff for babies and kids too. I just type in the brands I’m searching for and usually find at least a few things I love…from Bobo Choses, Misha and Puff, Go Gently, etc. I’ve purchased from all three of these for Hayes in the past as well. I’ve sold some old clothes of Hayes’ on Poshmark too – shop my closet.
And then, if you like more ‘recognizable’ designer clothes (i.e. not what I listed above – more like Stella McCartney Kids, Mini Rodini, etc) but don’t want to break the bank, try the outlet versions of department stores… Saks Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, and Last Call. You can find some cute stuff in store if you’re willing to dig. And the discounts are really good. I’ve found a couple of things this way.
3) For basics (onesies, pajamas, etc), I’ve found a few things on Amazon too. You just have to know what to search for… The brand L’ovedbaby has some solid color onesies, overalls, etc (and a lot of the styles are also made of organic cotton). And these rompers from Mini Honey are cute, but I’m not sure on the quality since I don’t own any.
4) Last but not least, you can find some good deals on Etsy! Especially for vintage. Some of it isn’t exactly in the gender neutral category, but if you dig around, you’ll find some cute stuff. You just have two check it regularly to keep up with new items that are being added.

Carter’s: Cute & Comfy
Carter’s has been around for generations, and they know kids’ clothes. Babies don’t care about looks, but they do care about comfort. That’s probably why Carter’s has a gazillion well-priced soft-cotton bodysuits, bottoms and rompers in their lineup. They’re a great place to start building baby’s wardrobe to cover all the basics at a budget-friendly price.
Primary: Bright Basics
All of Primary’s baby clothes—bodysuits, dresses, sweaters and separates—come in crayon-like colors and simple silhouettes that go with everything. All non-outerwear pieces are under $25 and made of soft-but-durable cotton that lasts. Primary is a perfect choice for parents who prefer solid or basic patterns to graphics and sayings on baby’s clothes.
Burt’s Bees Baby: Organic Goodness
From the maker of some of our favorite grown-up skincare products, Burt’s Bees Baby offers everything from bodysuits and booties to washcloths and robes—all in organic cotton that stays durable and gets softer with every wash.
Cat & Jack: Coordinated Sets
There’s no need to agonize over building a capsule wardrobe for your baby. Pre-matched two and three-piece sets take the guesswork out of what looks good together. Target’s Cat & Jack line has a wide variety of sets to choose from at wallet-friendly prices. Pro tip: Keep the receipt, and if the item wears out before one year, you can return it!
Goumi Kids: Soft & Sustainable
Seeing your child dressed in beautiful hues and prints from Goumi Kids is a guaranteed mood booster. But you’ll feel even better knowing that the baby footies, mittens and hats are made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials, like bamboo. And while Goumi Kids has a wide range of baby clothes, we’re kind of partial to the special Goumi Kids x Babylist collaboration.
Kickee Pants: Ultimate Softness
Ready for the softest, stretchiest baby clothes ever? All Kickee Pants pieces are made with 95% viscose fiber made from bamboo, which means they’re lightweight, super soft and stretchy enough for kiddo to get all their wiggles out without feeling restricted. Plus, all their footies have non-skid dots on the soles so new walkers have a good grip on even the slipperiest floors.
Old Navy: Bodysuits Galore
Old Navy offers a wide selection of baby clothes at refreshingly low price points. This is one of our go-to brands for bodysuits—they have dozens of graphic prints and patterns, and at $5 or lower each, it’s an excellent way to stock up on bodysuits in every size (because baby will grow into them all eventually). Keep in mind: There’s no gender-neutral search option, so you’ll need to search by either girls’ clothes or boys’ clothes.
Loulou Lollipop: For Quirky Kiddos
We love Loulou Lollipop for their fun and whimsical designs on everything from teethers to blankets, and their baby clothes are no exception. Avocados? Check. Safari? Check. Ramen? Check. And with flat seams and printed inner label (i.e. no tags!), this brand ensures baby can relax without irritation.

And with pieces like breezy ruffled rompers, jacquard-knit sweaters and trendy overalls, don’t be surprised if you start to envy your little one’s closet.

Considering the huge assortment of baby clothes for newborns that manufacturers offer today, as well as the desire to buy all the best for your baby, choosing a wardrobe for a child becomes a difficult task. Let’s get acquainted with the main types of clothing for babies and figure out what criteria you need to pay attention to before buying.
Varieties of clothing
In general, clothes can be divided into two main groups: the lower one, which is worn directly on the body, and the upper one, which is used mainly for “going out”.
What items belong to underwear:
- Body. This is a convenient replacement for vests and T-shirts. They are a T-shirt with a free neck and buttons between the legs.
- Man or slip. Model with buttons, handles and legs. Does not hinder the baby’s movements, does not put pressure on the tummy. Suitable for sleeping, walking.
- Blouses with a button. More comfortable than classic undershirts, as they are fixed with a button on the baby’s shoulder.There are hands and without, as well as with closed fingers.
- Pants and sliders. They differ only in the presence or absence of a sock. Pants are more practical, they do not slip, and the sliders need to be fixed on the legs with socks. They should have a wide soft “Euro-rubber” band that does not crush the body.
- Hats, kerchiefs and bonnets. Needed to protect the head from hypothermia. Models with ties hold better on the head.
- Elegant suits and dresses.
Outerwear includes various warm suits, overalls and envelopes, shoe covers and mittens. They are made for different weather – demi-season and winter. They differ in the type of upper material and the density of the insulation.
Taking into account the tenderness and vulnerability of the skin of newborns, very high demands are made on the quality and composition of the materials from which their clothes are made. So, clothes that are worn directly on the body should be made only of natural cotton.It is non-allergenic, easy to wash and withstands ironing at high temperatures. Warmer things are made of knitwear, fleece. Synthetics are acceptable in small quantities, up to 10%. It increases the elasticity of fabrics and their durability.
Outerwear should be warm, but breathable, the baby should not float. The outer layer of overalls and walks is often made of water-repellent materials.
General requirements for any children’s clothing: it should not hinder the movements of the baby, not cause difficulties for parents when you need to quickly change the baby’s clothes or change his diaper.
To be sure of the quality of things, give preference to trusted manufacturers. As a rule, they manufacture products in accordance with accepted safety certificates. The same cannot be said about the “bazaar” products. Of course, branded items are more expensive. But when it comes to the health of the baby, it is unwise to save. Plus, you can keep costs down by buying clothes from manufacturers or at branded sales.
90,000 why it happens and how to avoid mistakes when buying
When buying clothes, we usually pay attention to tags.The brand name, if we are familiar with it, gives us an idea of the quality of the product, as well as the values and philosophy of the team that created it. Fans of a particular brand create entire communities, easily share information about their favorite products, and, as studies show, it is easier for them to start communicating with those who have the same preferences when choosing clothes, shoes, and accessories.
One notable example is the commitment shown by fans of the sports brands NIKE and Adidas.Here it is obvious that they make their choice not only on the basis of quality characteristics, but also on the basis of values, a set of ideas with which one or another manufacturer is identified. Each of us has probably repeatedly come across the fact that in Kiev and other cities of Ukraine in stores they sell clothes without tags at all or with damaged tags. We decided to clarify the situation and talked about it with experts.
Kristina Alekseychuk, fashion stylist, blogger:
“Let’s clarify right away: there is a tag with the brand name and a tag inside the product with an indication of the composition, care recommendations and other important operating data.If there is no internal tag, this is a big disadvantage for the product: the consumer simply will not be able to properly care for the thing and it will most likely quickly lose its original appearance.
Moreover, as a stylist, I always draw the attention of my clients to the importance of the composition of the fabric. Comfort in wearing depends on it, and how the thing will look after a while, and its functionality (for example, keeping warm in winter). For all norms and standards, there must be an internal tag.But yes, unfortunately, there are times – most often when buying from little-known online stores – when, having received the product, the buyer discovers that the internal tag is missing. I recommend abandoning such a purchase: today the choice of goods is wide, and it is not worth encouraging unscrupulous sellers and manufacturers who, for some reason, do not show consumers information about the product.
The situation is completely different when it comes to the brand tag. The world’s most famous manufacturers are developing their business, increasing brand awareness, maintaining the quality and style standards promised to the consumer.In some campaigns, the budgets for brand promotion may exceed the budget of an entire city in Ukraine; the best specialists in their industry are responsible for the implementation of brand strategies. Accordingly, many brands, in order to be within the approved positioning (for example, premium clothing), cannot reduce the price below a certain threshold.
And, sending the leftover goods to outlets, such a manufacturer cuts off the tags indicating the brand. This is done so that these things do not appear on the market in the lower price segment.Moreover, it is not uncommon for such branded goods to be sold at minimal prices away from official stores. I know outlets in Ukraine where you could buy a Max Mara-level coat 9 times cheaper than it originally cost. The tag has been cut off, but as a stylist I only need to see the model and the inner fabric composition tag.
Separately, I would like to note the cases when novice local brands do not have a tag on good quality products. For example, one of my clients in the spring bought a stunning beret made of eco-leather at the fashion-market “Vsi.Our “in Kiev. When we decided to choose other things for her from the same Ukrainian designer, it turned out that it was rather difficult to do this, since there were no tags on the product. Obviously, this is due solely to the inexperience of the designer who produces high-quality clothes. but have not yet mastered all the elements of marketing. ”
Dmitry Taranenko, owner of TARDI Outlet:
“If you see clothes with a cut tag in an outlet, it means that you are holding an item from the last season’s collection.Often a brand’s new collection is not completely sold out. Such brand leftovers are transferred to the outlet, and before that the tags are cut. This is done so that in the future no one will use the goods in bad faith, offering consumers goods under the guise of a new collection. So the cut tag should not embarrass the buyer if he is satisfied with the model and the quality of the fabric of the product.
In European countries, there are whole outlet towns where practical fashionistas buy goods from world brands.It is noteworthy that when Europeans find themselves in Ukrainian outlets, it is difficult for them to refrain from shopping, because they can buy original products from us many times cheaper than in their own country (for example, belts, bags, accessories, shoes). So this is one of the few cases where our consumers have more options. Classic and basic models are re-sewn from year to year.
This is the secret of the frenzied popularity of outlets: you buy a new Levi`s model in an outlet with a 60% discount, and at this time in the official store the same model is sold twice as expensive.To avoid incorrect situations, the brand’s team cuts the tags with the name and thus marks the collections of the last season. ”
Children’s clothing of famous brands wholesale
In clothing for children, as well as in ordinary clothing for adults, there are a number of manufacturers with big names. Buying baby clothes under well-known labels, you can be sure of its quality. Of course, there are also Chinese forgeries.Many parents, when buying clothes for their children, do not look at the name of the label, and some even believe that purchasing branded clothes is a kind of whim for the spoiled. In part, this may be true, but only if buying famous labels becomes a mania.
Wholesale of famous brand children’s clothing: advantages
Why are brands so expensive? The first thing that can be answered is the quality that manufacturers under a well-known name achieve sometimes for decades.The quality category also includes a beautiful appearance, plus reliable materials. What else? Comfort, of course. As a rule, the reputation of the entire brand is based on these few “whales”. And children’s clothing is no exception.
Every detail in clothes is thought out to the smallest detail. And so that everything is balanced – without the presence of unnecessary elements. The fabric of the garment, its durability – all this matters. Regarding children’s clothing, it is worth mentioning that the requirements for it are even higher, because comfort and conditions in which they will feel good are still more important for young children.
Various teams are working on the creation of branded children’s clothing. Among them are fashion designers, artists, various designers and tailors. They have a huge impact on all fashion trends. It’s nice when all things are not only well-groomed and look beautiful, but also make a person happier. The same applies to the choice of children’s clothing.

Dear parents, both already become such, and potential! Silyam to you and just hello!
As you may have already guessed, based on my appeal, after men’s and women’s clothing, the topic of today’s conversation is children’s clothing of Turkish brands.
Speaking about women’s clothing, I quoted the phrase “for woman there is no limit” I heard once in relation to the attitude of men to the fair sex.And here is one of my old friends – Marinochka, thank you! 🙂 – indicated that another statement “for child there is no limit” works for women.

So, “children are our everything!” and clothing manufacturers do everything to make them look good, grow up free and beautiful personalities.
The importance of appearance as a factor in this process is unlikely to occur to anyone to question.
Moreover, in a specific Turkish culture – where they not only meet by dress, but also welcome, see off and remember.And if something goes wrong, they remember – you get obsessed … Even a rich inner world will not save you. What kind of “rich inner world” can there be for a person who looks bad ?!

Everything you need to know about membrane overalls and membrane clothing
Children’s functional clothing has many different characteristics that are not always clear even to an experienced parent, let alone beginners who, when they see a label with the inscription “membrane 10,000”, steam permeability and water resistance , sometimes fall into a stupor 🙂
And there is also a common myth that the membrane heats up! Which is not true, because the membrane, in simple terms, is waterproof fabric for clothes , which does not allow moisture to pass from the outside and wicks moisture (sweat) well from the inside.But first things first. Let’s start with the most popular questions parents ask about membrane clothing.
10 Popular Questions and Answers to Help Parents Easily Choose a Membrane Jumpsuit for Kids
- What is a membrane?
- How to choose the right children’s clothing from a membrane?
- Does the child need a membrane overalls, and for which children do we recommend membrane clothing?
- How to wear membrane clothing?
- What to wear under a membrane overalls?
- What weather is membrane clothing suitable for?
- Is it true that membrane overalls are only suitable for very active children?
- What models of membrane overalls are there in Dinomama.ru, and how do they differ from each other?
- Is the membrane well protected against moisture?
- How warm is membrane clothing and to what temperature can it be worn?
In this article you will find all the answers and you will understand the issue no worse than an experienced sales assistant 🙂
What is membrane
The membrane is the ideal material for children’s clothing and footwear! It contains over 1.4 billion.pores per square centimeter. It is the pores that give the membrane tissue its properties; water does not pass through them, and sweat evaporates.
Many have heard the name GoreTex – this is the patented name for the first membrane tissue. Today it is not the only membrane tissue. Many manufacturers have developed their own, and they all have different names – SympaTex, HuppaTex, SkandiTex, Reima Tec. The principle of “work” for all membrane tissues is the same, therefore it cannot be said that this is better and the other is worse, it does not depend on the name, but on the characteristics expressed in numbers.Here they just may differ, and when choosing clothing from a membrane, you should pay attention to them.
This is how the membrane looks when magnified
3 Key Features of Membrane Fabric
1. Water resistance
The microscopic pores of the membrane are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, so moisture simply cannot penetrate inside. The membrane is a waterproof garment fabric.
Why is waterproofing membranes so important
In wet or slightly damp tissue, the human body cools three times faster than in dry, i.e. the heat “goes away”. The membrane prevents heat loss, as a result, the baby will remain dry and comfortable in any weather in winter, autumn or spring.
2. High breathability
The pores of the membrane are 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, so the evaporation easily escapes.This is why the membrane can be said to “breathe”.
Why it matters
When babies are active, the skin removes excess heat through perspiration. To prevent uncomfortable moisture build-up, the membrane allows evaporation to escape through the fabric. This breathability of the membrane fabric ensures comfort and dryness even when the child is very active in a jumpsuit or jacket made of membrane.
3. Wind protection
The structure of the membrane resembles a hedge.The wind is completely absorbed by the “branches” and therefore does not reach the body. Thanks to this, the membrane protects from the wind and, observing the principle of layering, choosing the correct thermal underwear , the child will be warm even in extreme cold.
Why it matters
If the outer material of the clothing is highly breathable, the child will quickly freeze. It loses the thin, protective layer of air between the skin and clothing, which must be kept warm. The membrane prevents the wind from blowing out this layer, blocking its path.As a result, a comfortable microclimate is maintained under the layer of clothing.
Membrane jackets for spring and autumn
Is the membrane well protected against moisture?
Yes, because this is one of the key characteristics of membrane tissue. And the higher the indicators, the better the protection. That is why mothers of super active children often choose membrane clothing. After all, thanks to her, children can: ⠀
- jump carelessly through puddles
- walk in heavy snow or rain without fear of getting wet
- will not sweat even with active games
- will be protected from wind in any weather
Membrane overalls for children, how to choose?
Membrane clothing perfectly protects against moisture, this is one of its key functions.However, the waterproof rating may vary. To understand how to choose the right children’s clothing from a membrane, you need to pay attention to just a few characteristics. The higher the numbers, the better the performance.
Membrane overalls for autumn and spring
Looking at water resistance
- up to 1500 mm – the lowest indicator, the item can be worn in dry weather or drizzling rain.
- from 2000 mm to 5000 mm – a good indicator, the thing will withstand light rain, sleet, slides wet after rain, occasional splashes, but it can get wet if the child likes to lie to his heart’s content in wet snowdrifts or splash in puddles.
- from 5000 mm to 8000 mm – a high indicator, in such clothes you can walk in the rain, jump in puddles, but if the exposure is too long, it can get wet.
- above 8000 mm is an excellent indicator, the item is suitable for extreme weather conditions and will withstand the entire range of whims of our winter, autumn and spring.
Looking at air permeability / vapor permeability
This indicator indicates how well the fabric “breathes”.The higher the breathability of the fabric, the better and faster the vapors are removed from the child’s body. Please note that this indicator is not particularly important for toddlers who do not walk yet and children who move little during a walk, because most of the time they sit / lie in a stroller and do not even have time to sweat.
- clothes with steam permeability 1000-3000 g / m2 / 24h suitable for the city and walking;
- clothes with steam permeability from 5000 g / m2 / 24h – for “medium” mode of activity or light jogging;
- 8000-10000 g / m2 / 24h – well suited for active children who move a lot;
- steam conductivity 15000 g / m2 / 24h and above – these clothes are for those who work “at the limit”.This indicator is found in clothing for professional athletes.
We look at the amount of insulation
The more insulation in a jacket or overalls, the warmer the child. Active children can choose insulation up to 200 grams, inactive children – from 200 grams to 330+ grams.
Membrane winter jackets
There is a widespread misconception that clothing with a membrane is warmer. This is not true! The membrane is not warmer, it does not heat.In the membrane, the child will not get wet or sweat! Therefore, in order to choose a baby jumpsuit made of membrane, ask yourself the question – what kind of weather do you need these clothes for? Severe frosts, demi-season, off-season? Have you answered? Now choose based on the amount of insulation in this thing, and be sure to read our article on how to put on correctly under the membrane overalls .
Clothing insulation options and appropriate weather :
- up to 100 g – clothes for cold spring and autumn.These things can be worn down to 0 degrees with a warm intermediate layer.
- 140-180 g – clothes for the off-season and warm winter. It is this amount of insulation that is used by brands that produce clothing in the “sports winter” category, for example Reima , Lassie , Didriksons , Molo . Such clothing assumes observance of the principle of layering and is suitable for active children as a winter version. Toddlers and not very active children can wear such things up to a maximum of -10 degrees.
- 200-250 gr – in our assortment such a quantity of insulation is offered by the brands Luhta and Icepeak . Such clothes are suitable for the winter (up to -25 degrees) for children from 2 years old, and the smallest can comfortably walk in such things up to -15 degrees.
- 280-330 g – very warm clothes up to -30 degrees. This is produced by Kerry , Gusti , Huppa , Kisu . Kids can wear such things from 0 degrees on a thin blouse, and active children will be hot at temperatures above -5 degrees.
Attention! The amount of insulation is indicated for jackets and overalls, and in trousers, 1.5 / 2 times less insulation is always used for the same temperature regime. For example, children’s winter overalls Kerry contain 330 g of insulation, and in winter sets Kerry in a jacket 330 g, and in trousers 160 g of insulation.
Membrane overalls for the winter
What else to look for in order not to freeze for sure – read in this article
Does the child need a membrane overalls? For which children do we recommend membrane clothing?
The function of the membrane is to remove steam from the body and not allow moisture to pass from the outside.Therefore, you can be guided by a simple rule: an active child – a membrane is needed, a sedentary child – you can do without a membrane.
Babies and sedentary children do not need membrane clothing. Because for children who are not yet walking, the softness and warmth of the overalls, as well as natural lining, are more important than the high indicators of waterproofness and breathability. But wrapping up a child is also not worth . We also have an article about this in the encyclopedia.
Children of the second year of life – also, as a rule, there is no need to buy overalls with high waterproof and breathable characteristics.They are not yet so active as to sweat a lot during a walk, and not so nimble and inquisitive as to wallow in every puddle.
Membrane trousers and mittens for autumn and spring
Is it true that membrane overalls are only suitable for active children?
In general, yes. A jumpsuit with a membrane is less likely to get wet if the child likes to play in the snow for a long time or paddle in puddles, plus – the membrane provides good air exchange, so even the most active stylopeak will not sweat, because.This is because the moisture in such a jumpsuit is instantly drained away.
This is exactly who needs clothing with a membrane:
- active children who run around like crazy and sweat because of it. The membrane will really help them. If the child gets wet, the membrane will take all the moisture out, subject to the principle of layering , and the likelihood of freezing dry even in a thin membrane overalls is much less than damp, but in the warmest clothes.
- children who play sports outdoors simply cannot do without a membrane.With this activity, the likelihood of sweating is even greater and the ability of clothing to wick moisture away from the body becomes a necessity.

How to wear membrane clothing and what to wear under membrane overalls?
Many parents ask themselves what to wear under membrane clothing and if there is any rule that must be followed when wearing children’s clothing made of membrane fabric.In fact, the rules are the same as with any other outerwear. After all, what does a jumpsuit with a membrane mean? This is exactly the same jumpsuit as any other, but with certain improved characteristics, so always observe the principle of layering:
- The first layer is thermal underwear. It is correct to put it on directly on your naked body, without any T-shirts, T-shirts and tights.
- What to wear under the overalls with the second layer – decide depending on the weather.The second layer can be fleece or woolen, or it can be completely absent.

- 3000 to 5000 mm – Average water resistance values
- 5,000 to 10,000 mm – high waterproof performance
Which air permeability or vapor permeability is indicated
- 1000-3000 g / m2 / 24h – suitable for city and walking
- from 5000 g / m2 / 24h – for “medium” mode of activity or light running
- 8000-10000 g / m2 / 24h – well suited for active children who move a lot
