Girl's Clothing Sizes
Emma is my only child and I have a question about clothing sizes. She currently wears 5T, but what comes after that? Is the next size, size 6 in the little girl's section? Also, how do shoe sizes work?

After 5T is 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14. At size 12-14 some girls transition to Jr sizes depending on their build.

Shoes are sized 1-13 for little kids. After 13 it starts over at size 1 and eventually they get up to adult sized feet!

Thank you! And they say women's clothing sizes are confusing!

6X is the size for girls who haven't outgrown the babyfat stage, with a little more room in the hip/rear end. So that size is between 6 and 7.

If you go to the Lands' End website, you can print out a shoe sizer. They also have lots of plus and slim sizes.

My Emma, who is 7, needs a 6 waist and a 7 length, so clothes shopping is pretty frustrating. We try lots of stuff on. It would help if she would agree to wear overalls because then we wouldn't have to fit the waist, but she refuses.

I like Zappos for shoe purchases because they have free shipping AND free returns.
