Getting the right size

14, 16, 18 years? I don’t know my Petit Bateau size. How do I double check?

To check your size or your child’s size we recommend that you consult our size guide by going to «Guarantees and services > Choosing the right size». You can also access this info by clicking on the «Getting the right size» link on each product detail page.

My baby aged 3 months is wearing clothes for 6 month olds. I want to buy clothes for next season ahead of time but how do I gauge the right size?

Your baby should be wearing age 12 months at the beginning of next season. As a general rule of thumb buy larger than you would normally because you are buying ahead of time. Take trousers for example. Buy one size larger to ensure that your baby is totally comfy.
