Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or you are unsure about what is your correct size.

- What you will need to do.

Click on any one of the following charts to go straight to it, or scroll down the page to browse them all.

Following are easy to use charts to enable you to be able to convert from your local measurement system (inches / metric) into the equivalent NZ size. All sizing shown for each garment is based on New Zealand sizes. Please use the following tables to find the right size for your country, then find the equivalent NZ size and select that when ordering.

When ordering, remember that age is not always an accurate guide to sizes. The height of your child generally gives a better indication of which size to buy (especially for toddlers).

To ensure you receive the styles that are just the kind of fit you like, it is best to take a moment to measure yourself, your child, husband or friend and check all body measurements against our size chart.

We hope this makes choosing the best size easier - however if in doubt contact us for advice.

- Maternity

To keep things simple, just choose the size you normally would when you're not pregnant. If unsure check the chart.

Maternity clothes should fit just as your regular clothes do, allowing room for expansion with a standard weight gain of 11 - 14 kg (25-30 pounds).

If you feel you have gained, or will be gaining more than an average pregnancy weight gain, please go up one size. If you want a more body conscious fit, or if you are in between sizes on our size chart, you may want to size down (especially in pant styles).
