How to order the Correct Size

I don't want you to choose the wrong size when you order online.  I know I hate returning things!  To make it easier for you, I created simple, easy-to-read size charts to help you find the right t-shirt size.  Follow these 2 steps.

1) Measure these 2 points, A (Width) & B (Length) on your child's onesies, t-shirts, or on your best fitting t-shirt
