The term “growing clothes” is used more and more often nowadays. However, most of the times buyers is wondering what it really means? In this article we’d like to introduce you the concept of growing sizes of our CRAWLER Merino clothes and help you with choosing the perfect size for your child.
We have been working on cuts for growing clothes since the beginning of 2013. Merino clothes are a considerable investment so we wanted the price to spread out so that the investment is not so “painful” for the parents. Besides, the growing clothes concept is ecological and slow - instead of many pieces of clothes for your child you can have just a few - not only that the clothes will grow with your child, but Merino wool clothes won’t have to be washed as often as regular clothes, so you save nature and your time. As a bonus, children feel 100% great in Merino clothes in any weather. So what more to wish for?

LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE:
Crawler clothes are three-size. The principle is simple – the cuts are using the elasticity of Merino wool and clothes have large double hems that can be rolled up, or they hold sleeves/trousers tucked up. You will automatically receive prolonging extender with the bodysuit that is included in the price for all the variants (long sleeve, short sleeve, no sleeve, top...).
You need to ask yourself before buying whether you want to make full use of the growing potential of your clothes, in part, or whether you want your clothes to be “just right”.
1. If you want the garment to grow with your child in three sizes, buy a size whose number is at the beginning of our label.
Example: Your child is 66 cm tall and wears standard size 68. You want the garment to grow as much as possible. Order the Crawler garment in size 68–74/80. The child can wear it up to standard size 80 (approximately up to a height of 83 cm).

2. If you want the garment to last but don’t want the three-size surplus, buy a size whose number is in the middle of our label.
Example: Your child is 66 cm tall and wears standard size 68. You want the garment to grow, but you only need an about 1.5 size surplus. Order the Crawler garment in size 62–68/74. The child can wear it up to standard size 74 (approximately up to a height of 83 cm).
3. I don’t want clothes with any surplus – I want everything to fit the baby without surplus. Order a size whose number is at the end of our label.
Example: Your child is 66 cm tall and wears standard size 68. You want the garment to fit without surplus. Order the Crawler garment in size 56–62/68. The child can wear it until the transition to standard size 74 (approximately up to a height of 72 cm).
4. Tailor-made/made-to-measure garments: If your child doesn’t fit into size charts and can’t wear ready-made clothes, we will be happy to tailor Crawler garments for you. There is no problem to sew a narrower cut or to extend the waist or otherwise customise the garment. In such a case, however, we require your cooperation, namely that you provide measurements and consultation. If you want to adjust the cut of your garment, please let us know where regular clothes don’t fit you – we will ask you for the specific measurements and information we will need to use for sewing the garment.
As you might know, we adjust cut of the garment if:
- the child is wearing cloth diapers
- the child is tiny or chubby
SO HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Size 56-62/68 is usually for new-borns until about 6 months. It’s way longer for tiny kids.
Size 62-68/74 is for kids from 3 months until 9-12 months or longer.
Size 68-74/80 is for kids from approximately 6 months until 18 months and so on.
Generally the bigger size, the longer it will last. Some kids wear one size for a year and a half - everything is very individual and it depends on kid’s proportions as well as the growth rate.
