A Cheat Sheet to Sizing Boutique Baby Clothing Brands

We only speak girl clothes in my house. But we speak them often and fluently. Even better we generally speak them on sale or secondhand. But when you’re in a thrift shop, second hand store or staring down a sale on Zulily, Gilt, The Mini-Social, Totsy (referral links) or even eBay it can be daunting to know what size to get. It’s even worse if you decide to go whole hog and pay full price for a piece only to find out that instead of fitting for three months it fits for three days.

While there’s at least three dozen hundred thousand more clothing makers out there, these are the ones I (or someone I trust) has experience with in sizing and style. So without further adieu, a little cheat sheet when it comes to buying high end/boutique/more expensive baby clothing brands. (Links to stores in bold.)
