Please use the chart as a general guideline. All princesses vary in weight and height, so if you need a different size that is mentioned here or are uncertain, e-mail us directly with her EXACT waist size and we'll put together an amazing tutu suited just for your sweet angel. Buy by size, not by age. If measurements are a combination of sizes, order the size of the largest measurement. You can always give us her accurate waist size and we can customize it to fit her at no additional cost. We always welcome completely custom orders!
All TuTu Girl tutus are made with an elastic, non-roll waistband, which is stretchy to accomodate a growing waistline. If you have ANY questions about our sizes or are unsure of what size to order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kids grow fast! Children grow so quickly from the last time they are measured, so before you order, take a few minutes and use our handy size reference to determine the correct size for your child.
Waist: Stand normally, position hands below side hips. Measure over underwear at the smallest part of waist. Keep tape snug, not tight. Measure with a soft tape measure.
Length: Please make sure you order the correct length too! Measure from her waist (or where you'd like the tutu to rest on hips) and drop the tape straight down. Take that number and use it to order the correct length. Our prissy and poofy tutus do poof up, so they may appear shorter than they really are. Please keep this in mind when ordering. For example, since our Prissy tutu is 6 inches long and and our Poofy tutu is 8 inches long, they will not likely cover older girl's bottoms. These lengths are generally not recommended for our 7/8/10 waist sizes and larger, unless this is the look you are trying to achieve. Tutu Girl is not responsible for this if you order incorrectly as all our items are custom, made to order. If unsure, we recommend ordering the next longer size or e-mail as at email@example.com and we'll help.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Tutu Girl is not responsible if the incorrect size is ordered so we strongly recommend measuring before ordering as we will not be able to give refunds if the wrong size is ordered as all our items are custom, made to order. Thank you in advance.
ALL WAISTBANDS ARE MEASURED ACCORDING TO THE UNSTRETCHED SIZE TO ALLOW FOR GROWTH. For example, if you order 3T-6, you will receive a tutu that has a waistband circumference of 20" UN-STRETCHED. It will stretch a couple of inches to allow for growth. If you find her to be in between our sizes, then contact us and we'll tell you what size to order. Generally we will have you order up a size and provide us with her waistline in inches. If you order the smaller of the two sizes and simply make a note that you want a waistline larger that you actually order, even with the note we will NOT be able to accommodate the request. Custom tutus are our specialty!

How to measure for our tutu dresses: Ordering is simple! You'll just need two measurements - her chest size and length. Please see below how to obtain each measurement. If you find she doesn't fit into a certain length,you would normally order by LENGTH but please contact us and we'll tell you which size to order if you are uncertain which size to select. Order by the NEEDED LENGTH, then at checkout, note the correct chest circumference in inches. We custom create all our tutu dresses for the perfect fit!
How To Measure for the Chest Size: Measure all the way around the largest part of her chest. Please refer to our sizing guide to pick the correct size. Give us that number in inches if you're uncertain what chest size to order. Please note: the measurement is best obtained by using a soft tape or you can use a piece of yarn or ribbon, then carefully measure the dimensions with a measuring tape.
How To Measure for the Perfect Length: Measure from her armpit down to the desired length at her legs. Please refer to our sizing guide to pick the correct size. Give us that number in inches if you're uncertain what length to order.
