What size does a 6 year old wear?
Some children have a hard time finding the right size in shoes, so you’ll want to make sure you buy the correct size- a 6 year old will typically wear a size 2 shoe.
How do you know what size they wear?
Children’s sizes vary based on their height and weight. Children should be measured at the end of each season in order to determine what size they wear. If a child is between sizes, you can use a tape measure to see which size will fit them better.
Measurement system differences
You may be wondering how to figure out the size of a 6 year old. When you’re working with sizes, it’s important to keep in mind that most kids’ size in one country won’t match the size standards in another country. This is because different countries use measurements that are based on completely different systems. For instance, the European/US standard for shoe sizes is based on your foot length and shoe width. Meanwhile, Japan uses an arm-length system base on which people measure their height from their wrist to the elbow.
Children’s clothing is sized on a unisex basis and conversion charts are available online. These charts list the size in inches that corresponds to the international sizing system. Some children’s clothing is labeled by age such as “0-6 months,” “6-12 months,” or “12-24 months.” Children are often put into size groups by decade. A 6 year old would wear a size 12.
A 6 year old will typically wear between sizes 1 and 3. There is no pre-determined size for a 6 year old as they are usually somewhere in the middle of their sizing.

What size does a 6 year old wear?
Children grow differently, so just because a 12-18 month shirt fits one kid from 6-9 years old doesn’t mean that it will fit the same size when we add 3 extra inches of height and weight comes in. So try to buy pieces in the size you think is best for your child once they cross a certain weight percentile through their clothes – but always know to go up or down!
How children’s clothing sizes vary over time
The first time I realize with a little girl who was wearing size 4 and she told me that “That doesn’t fit, I’m too skinny. I don’t think it will fit when xtion becomes a teen”, I took in the scene around me. All the little girls were wearing clothing way too big for them and none of them even noticed or commented on how their clothes could not actually be wrapped all the way around their waist without being tied into knots from their pant legs wrapping over the tops of their boots. And there, perched at the back of my mind all this time was an observation that catches my attention: Six year old clothing sizes are different than sizing for pre-teenagers.
Clothing label sizing
When it comes to clothing, one of the first characteristics that you think about is size. Everyone worries that they’re not small enough or large enough and can’t seem to find clothes in their size. Luckily, companies such as Target have clothing labels that specify specific measurements for sizes extra small to extra large. Keeping track of your clothing’s label size allows you to shop for future purchases with closure because you’ll know which clothing fits you best!
