SIZING UP // Choosing the right size for your mini.

Getting the right size for your KerrieALDOmini is important to you, and to us, so here's a quick and easy guide of how to measure up to make sure you're making the right choice when ordering. 

While our KerrieALDOmini sizes are based on age, we understand that some children are tall for their age or maybe petite.  That's when you might need a little extra help to double check on our sizing.

When following our measuring instructions, we recommend that you use the size chart below and compare it to an existing garment that you know fits to find the best match for you.  Altough all KerrieALDO kids coats are exchangeable (excluding custom) Getting the right size first time means you don't have to wait any longer than necessary to get the wear out of the new coat!

So here goes...


The first measurement you need to take is your back length, to make sure the jacket will be long enough for your child.  To do this, you need to measure straight down the back of the jacket.  Start at the seam where the hood joins the back, and measure all the way down to the hem. 


Next, you need to measure the sleeve length. Please remember that when measuring the sleeve length, we measure with the cuffs turned up (also note than on jackets with this feature the cuffs can also be worn down when your kid grows a bit). Start at the side neck seam, measure down the top of the shoulder seam and down to the finished length of the sleeve.



Finally, you need to measure the side seam to side seam width.  To do this, lay the jacket flat on a table, and measure from one side seam to the other. All our KerrieALDOmini designs have straight sides so this length will be the same at any point down the sides of the jacket. 

We now have 11 different kids styles available to shop directly from KerrieALDO.com, making things easier and more transparent for you as well as being the quickest way to get your order.

If you are looking for something a little more specific then you can order through the 'custom works' service to get exactly what you want. Got a child who refuses to wear anything but yellow? Want a funky, colourful lining fabric? Or maybe even just a colour that works better with the school uniform?  Send us a message and we'll see what we can do for you.  More information about order custom can be found here - https://www.kerriealdo.com/bespoke-orders (Custom Works start at a £15 minimum addition onto base style price for kids orders)

We hope this explanation will help you get the perfect fit for your mini, but if you need any more advice or have any questions you can message us through our contact page on www.kerriealdo.com or send an e-mail to info@kerriealdo.com and we'll do everything we can to help.
