Our sizing is easy!
We still use the European way of sizing by height in centimeters because it's easy and makes good sense - since every child grows at their own pace all you need to do is measure their height for a good fit.

There's no need to "buy big."
Our clothes have plenty of growth room, so go ahead and order the correct size on our chart - there's no need to "buy big." We can't stress this enough! Whether you choose an item that's prewashed or one that has shrinkage built in, every hanna garment is designed for a good fit with room for growth.

How to use our size chart:
Just measure your child from the top of the head to the floor in inches, then use the chart to convert to centimeters. Call us with any questions and we'll be happy to help you get the right fit.

Height is the one and only measure you need to order hannas - we can't stress this enough - measure the height for a good fit.

Weight may be helpful if a child is above or below average weight.

Age isn't nearly as accurate as using the height (since kids all grow at different rates!). It's helpful when sending out-of-town gifts.

Play Shift Tunic Dress Love these little dresses, easy fit and no too long. The bright solid colors go with everything! ( I wish however that the coordinating carpi leggings came in stripes, not a huge fan of the more modern patterns) July 11, 2014
LOVE I have purchased 4 of these and love them! So adorable- great quality May 27, 2014
Great fit, very comfortable and pretty look I just started purchasing the Hanna Andersson's clothes last month since my 5 year old daughter likes COMFORT above all and most brands are tight on her. She is an above average size girl, but our experience has been that dresses and tunics fit her perfectly if I go by the size chart from this website, however the tops are best a size bigger, also because they will fit her for a longer time. This tunic has such a great color, I love the straight cut, and it goes really well with the white tights decorated with flowers. My daughter liked it very much even though she has never ever liked any dresses before. For the first time, she is wearing dresses and tunics because they are comfortable, also shorter in length so she can wear them with tights or shorts. Great purchase, I would recommend it to anyone.

Love the tunic dress with pockets This is such a fun dress. My girls love the pockets on the side. It can be worn with just about anything - long sleeve shirt and leggings on cooler days or shorts on warmer days. I wish they made this dress for women. April 29, 2014
Great daily wear dress I got this dress in two colors for my daughter to wear to school on a daily basis with leggings through the spring and shorts as we transition to summer. It is darling. The color is great. Incredibly easy for me to clean and for her to wear. I bought my daughter's dresses when they were on a promotion and feel that they were a really great value at the price I paid for them. My daughter may even be able to wear them into the fall with a long-sleeved short underneath and may even still be able to wear it next year. Yay! April 12, 2014
Cuter On I thought this would be too boxy, but it looks great on. The navy looks especially sharp. April 12, 2014
Good dress Good dress, especially at the sale price of $20. I do wish the thread onhe pockets weren't white and the green color isn't quite what I expected. But it's cute, well made, and will probably last all summer. Also easy for an independent 5-year-old to put on herself, which is nice. April 8, 2014
Love this dress!!! My 9 y/o daughter has been wearing Hanna Andersson since she was an infant. These are my favorite clothes and I will buy them until she can no longer wear them. I have bought underclothes, pajamas, shorts, many, many dresses, shirts, capris, tights, you name it we've had it, and have always been very happy with everything.They are the best quality clothing I have found. I have recommended y'all to everyone I can. April 5, 2014
