What size comes after 5T

After 5T you’ll be buying size 6. If the brand stops using numbered sizing, you’ll be moving on to size small (S) because size 5T usually represents extra-small (XS). 

Here’s a quick guide (although it will vary by brand.)

What’s that T for anyway?

Up until now, you’ve been buying clothes that say 2T, 3T, 4T, and even 5T. That T stands for toddler. Even though your kid is not so little anymore, the transition from those sweet toddler clothes is just starting.

Is there a difference between 5T and regular 5? 

You’ve caught on! Not all brands even have 5T, some stop the T’s as early as size 4. There’s not much of a difference between size 5T and regular 5. (Although some may argue that the regular one is slightly bigger.)  

The main difference is if the clothes will be grouped with toddler clothes or kid clothes as well as the brand’s preference. So the 5T size may be found with the toddler stuff, and the regular 5 won’t. 

What comes after size 6? 

After size 6 you have size 7, although some brands will offer 6/7 – something in between. 

Also, size 6 is equivalent to size small for most brands, so once size small is too snug for your little one, it’s time to move on to medium
