After toddler sizing the little girl's section is X and the big girl's section is Related Questions How does boy toddler to youth sizing go? If I were you, I'd go straight to boys size 6. From what I see it appears that 5T have more elastic waist bands ect maybe they are easy to work for younger children? There is, I swear, a 3 to 4 inch length difference between some brands!
I don't think any other size is so variable. What's weird is that they are about the same in waist and fit fine through hips and bottom. Anyway, in my experience 5t is shorter, but for this age I actually measure the total length and the inseam of pants that fit well, and carry a measuring tape in my purse when I go shopping unless it's at a store or brand I know well.
The next size is just 6. I know it is confusing to get that at first. It was hard with both my girls and now my boy too. Bailey CLD Aurora www. I'm in the same boat! My son is 4 and in 5T but I don't see it lasting past this summer. That's how I ended up here lol. I needed to know what came next He's a lot of muscle What gets me with him is something might fit fine around the waist So glad to be a member of a super helpful site!

Join Date Jun Posts 1, Trying to buy some clothes for DD for next year. She is a petite girl and has always been on size depending on her age. Currently 4T is too big for her in pants. Should I go for 5T next year? In general the difference between 5 and 5T is that 5T usually is bigger in the bum to accommodate a diaper. If your DD is pt'd or close I would probably do 5 for next year.

If she gets past a size 10 by next winter, I'm in deep trouble. But in that case, I'll probably just get her winter crocs. My son for example wears size 4 and 5T right now in pants. My daughter is in a 6X - 6X is like a 6. So typically - a child might wear a 5T after a size 4? No - they are the same After a 4 your child will go to a 5.
I thought the girl's section started at size 4. At least it does at the Wal-Mart, haven't looked in other places though. After toddler sizing the little girl's section is X and the big girl's section is The ones I've seen pretty much have size all in one place.
That must be easier - I always have to go to a different part of the store. I guess less sizes to search through here though. We can't wear Walmart clothing , but their sections are separate here too. I hope DS clothes i just bought fit So a taller, slimmer child would fit better in a 4 vs a 4T.
Aug 10, · Even though the Gap site says there was no difference between 5T and 5 jeans, the 5 fit and the 5T were too small. So (not at all helpful for you) for boys' jeans at Gap, 5 is a touch bigger than 5T. Nov 18, · Re: Is there a difference between 5 and 5T??? it's not the same 5T is 5 Toddler 5 is young girls 5T is a smidge smaller than 5. I think 5T is the last it goes in Toddler sizes, then it jumps to 4, 5, 6 for young girls. Can anyone explain the difference between the 4T and 5 T toddler sizes and 4/5 in girls? I'm starting to look for more cool weather things for DD (dear daughter) but I want to be sure I get things.
