• Customers will be required to wear face coverings at all times when you are in our shop, subject to government guidelines. For further information click here.

• To take your child’s chest measurement, measure around the fullest part of their chest.
• For younger children, place the tape measure a few inches below their armpit and measure their chest there.
• For older children, particularly girls, the fullest part of their chest might be a little lower. Your child will be able to tell you what feels comfortable to them.
• Be sure not to pull the tape measure too tight as this can lead to buying shirts or blouses which are too small and
