 How To Measure

Note: there are the parkas measurements, not your childs, and are to be used only as a guide.

  1. Length: measure your child from the back of the neck down to see where the hem will sit. There is no rule as to what the 'correct' length is, but around mid-calf is good.
  2. Chest: lift arms slightly and measure the fullest part of the chest while keeping the tape straight across the back. Keep in mind you want your parka larger so you have wiggle room.
  3. Arm Length: this measurement is taken from the centre of the back of the neck, over the shoulders to the end of the cuff.

Tip: For children the most important measurement is the length. I suggest going as long as possible for it to last a couple of years! If the arms are long, they can be rolled up or I find the kids love putting their thumb through the gap between the button and cuff!
