My daughter just turned 7 and she's on the petite side. I ordered a size 6-7 for her and it was way too tight. Returning for a larger size. Other than that it is very cute and she said if it wasn't tight it would be very comfortable.
Very cute shorts, but they were ridiculously small! I don't understand how they come up with the sizes. My 2nd grader (who is tiny) fit into a 12-14 Child Large. That is crazy. The child 6-8 looked like it had been made for a doll.
We love the shorts, but they need to get their sizes right. It would save a lot of shipments back and forth trying to get the right size if they just used normal sizes.
The shorts in the picture look like they are more like a plastic vinyl. They aren't. They are breathable and pretty. My daughter is very slim and even though she is in a size 12 slim a lot of the time I have to buy her a regular size 8 in shorts. I bought the large and they fit perfectly. They look very small before you put them on. They have a lot of stretch.
Thank goodness I read other reviews before purchasing these shorts. They run small. My daughter is a 6 and I went with the M (size 8). They fit perfect. She loves the super shiny sparkly red! Don't know how they'll hold up, haven't washed them yet.
These shorts are adorable on both my 6 and 7 year old gymnast. HOWEVER, the run VERY VERY small. I got the Medium for my 7 yr old and I can hardly get them on her. I ordered another pair in size Large (12-14) and they are only a tiny bit bigger. They will do for now but if your child is older then 8 I wouldn't get these. For reference my 7 yr old weighs 60lbs and the large fits her and my 6 yr old weighs 43lbs and the medium fit her.
Purchased these for gymnastics shorts and they're a great fit in regards to the rise and inseam. However, they do run VERY small! My daughter is a small size 6 and from what I understood these types of shorts run small so I ordered a size 8/10 (Medium) and they fit perfect! Definetly size up one or even two sizes!
I ordered a L (12-14), but when I got it in the mail the waist only measured 20 inches...more like a size 4. So I called and they sent a new pair. Same problem with these. I guess they base the measurements on a stretched out version.
