Kids will be comfortable and safe in correctly sized clothing. Tight clothes can prevent free playing and climbing, whereas clothes that are too long or loose may hinder movement or get caught.
However, outerwear should be loose enough for mid layers and air for insulation – clothes that are too tight won't be warm.
How long will a garment fit?
Reima garments have around 6 cm room for growth, allowing base and mid layers, too. If your child is close to 104 cm tall in the autumn and is of a thin or medium body type, a size 104 overall should fit comfortably through the winter. However, kids can grow in spurts, so sometimes a larger size may be a wise choice. For this photo, we’ve dressed a size 104 cm snowsuit on three kids. The leftmost kid is 98 cm tall, the one in the middle is 104 cm and the one on the right measures 110 cm.
We recommend fitting the clothes because there are differences between the styles: our collection contains relaxed fit clothes as well as slim fit ones. In addition, kids are all built differently.
Ask your kid to squat: the back of the overalls shouldn't become too tight – there should be enough space from neck to crotch.
Ask your kid to lift their arms up to the sides: the sleeves are long enough when the wrists remain covered.
Do the pants legs crease too much? Select a smaller size or shorten the overalls by adjusting the waist. The leg ends usually have foot loops or an adjustment that prevents the hem from getting under the foot.
If the garment length is correct but more space is needed around the stomach or shoulders, choose a looser cut or a larger size.
