We make our Mini Braces, Mini Belts, Midi Belts and Maxi Belts in the following standard sizes.
However, as all waistbands are different, and the distance between belt loops varies, if you are unsure of the size you need, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my very best to help.
Our sizing guide is as follows:
One Size - approx ages 6 - 36 months
One Size - approx ages 6 months - 6 years
Size One - approx ages 1 - 4 years
Size Two - approx ages 4 - 8 years
Maxi Belts - Buckle
One Size - approx ages 6 -10 years
Maxi Belts - D Rings (approx total belt length, excluding the D rings)
Size One - approx ages 4 - 5 years (26")
Size Two - approx ages 5 - 6 years (28")
Size Three - approx ages 6 - 7 years (30")
Size Four - approx ages 7 - 8 years (32")
Size Five - approx ages 8 - 10 years (34")
For the Maxi Belt, as a rough guide, measure flat across the back of the waistband from one side to the other. Double the number to get actual waist size, then add between 2" to 6" to allow enough material to feed through the first belt loop as per the picture.
How do you fit the Mini Braces?
The easiest way to fit the Mini Braces is to get a really good fold of material into the clip to give it the best grip. I've found it much easier to put the Mini Braces on before my children are actually wearing the garment to get the best hold.
Mini Braces will clip onto almost anything but with thicker material, the grip may not be as tight. As a work around, you may be able to clip it onto the material just under the waistband depending on the fabric and as long as it was comfortable for your little one.
Mini Braces come in one size and should fit most childrens waistbands and are recommened for approximate ages 6 months to 3 years for trousers and up to approximately age 10 years for skirts.
How do you fit the Mini Belts?
The easiest way to fit the Mini Belts is to loop them around the belt loops at the back of the waistband as per the pics and snap fasten in place for comfort and to hold the garment in place.
Mini Belts comes in one size and are recommended for approximate ages 6 months to 6 years. They can be adjusted to fit with snap fasteners and will fit most childrens waistbands.
How do you fit the Midi Belts?
The easiest way to fit the Midi Belts is to feed it through the belt loops at the back of the trousers first. Next, continue to feed the belt through the rest of the loops towards the front belt loops, then fold it over the top, then under, then back on itself as per the pics below. Then snap fasten for comfort and to hold the garment in place.
Midi Belts come in two sizes and are recommended for approximate ages 1 - 8 years. They have snap fasteners all the way round to make it fully adjustable and will fit most childrens waistbands.
How do you fit the Maxi Belts?
To fit the Maxi Belt - Buckle, feed the buckle through the belt loops all the way around the waistband, then clip the buckle at the front. Then adjust the snap fasteners to find the best fit.
The Maxi Belt with Buckles does not need to be fastened/unfastened for pulling the garments up/down as the elastic can stretch and contract, holding the garment in place.
The Maxi Belt - Buckle comes in one size and is recommended for approximate ages 6 - 10 years. The size can be adjusted using the snap fasteners to find the best size and will fit most childrens waitsbands.
To fit the Maxi Belt - D Rings, feed the belt through the garments belt loops as you would any normal belt. Next, feed the belt end through both D rings, then feed the belt end back through the second D ring and pull to fit comfortably.
The Maxi Belt - D Rings comes in various sizes and are recommended for approximate ages 4 - 10 years and will fit most waitsbands.
