we follow australian sizing standards which reflect age. for example, size 2 is designed to fit a two year old. if your child usually wears size 2 then size 2 should be the correct fit (however please see specific item details below for more information).
if your child is between sizes then upsize. for example, if they wear size 2 or size 3 (depending on the brand) then purchase size 3.
if your child is a bigger fit than most children their age, consider this and purchase accordingly. for example, if your child is two years old but usually wears size 4 then size 4 will be the correct fit.
these are true to size. if your child is size 2 then size 2 will fit correctly. rashguards are better worn snug and will drag through the water if they are too big, making it difficult to swim. rashguards are snug around the wrists to prevent catching. rashguards have extra length in the body to ensure bellies don't pop out and see the sun.

size chart for swimwear
this chart indicates the most suitable size for the corresponding body measurements (although age is often a better indicator than size charts when clothing in concerned). the size should fit body measurements averaging the indicated number.
your best bet here is to measure the circumference of your babe's head at the widest part. it's easiest done with a tape measure and bribes. then choose a hat closest to that measurement from the table below. our fabric is super stretchy and will grow approximately 4cm. for example, if your babe's head measures 48cm then purchase the 49cm size (6-12 months) which will allow for plenty of wear. As always, if in doubt or between measurements upsize as our hats have an adjustable head tie to ensure the perfect fit even if purchased with growing room.
