The Sizing of this is WA WAY OFF as other reviewers have stated. Having read the reviews 3 x a piece, I still ordered it and decided to order up for my two sons thinking I had cracked the code. Too bad I had not. All of the reviews (in my opinion) go into specifics about their Childs weight and height blah blah. I will tell you this and it is a simple sizing suggestion: Take your Childs age.. Got it? Multiply it by 2 (yes 2) and then order that size in the size chart. If your kid is very undersized for their age, maybe x 1.5 but no less than that.
It seemed like a nice suit, but it was FAR too large for my (small) 4-year-old. I ordered the Large (4/6) because I didn't want her to outgrow it instantly, but the crotch was down by her knees. She's about 37" tall and 30lbs, so a 2/4 might've been a better bet, but there wasn't any sizing guidance I could find beyond the age range. It would be nice if height/weight were correlated with sizes somewhere on the product description, so you could have a decent chance of choosing the right size.
Fit is perfect all around but runs small so after this summer it would no longer fit him. My kiddo is a 6 yo, this size "X-Large 6-8" is on the small side torso length-wise, it's stretched to the max and the legs ride up giving him wedgies a lot. My kiddo is around 79%ile for height for his age. Neoprene part is thinner than we're used to with the O'Neill youth wetsuits/springsuits. and the arms and shoulder area on this Cressi wetsuit are not neoprene - keeping shoulders and upper arms warm are more important to me for my kiddo to not feel as cold as in a rashguard. Odor is minimal. Compared to the O'Neill springsuits this one falls short in comfort and fit but they are so much more expensive than this Cressi wetsuit. But for the price point, it's a decent wetsuit for swimming pools so it deserves 4 stars, consider ordering a size up if your child is 7 or 8 yo of course depending on physical stature of said child.
I'm giving 3 stars because we haven't had a chance to test it out in the water yet (I will update after our camping trip) but I felt strongly about this wet suit so I wanted to add a review right away.
I like them and so do the kids. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because we have not been in the water with them yet and I want to wash them before I decide. I will say my son is in the green one, he is 52” and 60 pounds in the XXL and it is pretty short. According to their size chart he should actually fit the XL and that definitely would not have happened. My daughter is in the pink at 46” and 50 pounds in the XL. According to their chart she should wear the L but that clearly would not have happened so I say size UP!
Lovely quality, looks lovely fitted really well on my daughter. My daughter is nearly 4 and a size for a 3 year old fitted with still some legroom. But she is very skinny for her age and is literally skin and bone. I bought this as my daughter complained about being cold in her classes. I wanted something that was good to keep her chest warm and this is fine. I think it does the job but if she was doing water sports in the sea then I probably would have opted for something a bit more heavy duty but for a 30 min class this is fine.
I bought this 7-8 size for my 6-year-old son, and found that it came up very large on him as he is quite tall for his age.
Great little swimsuit, quite generous in sizing, front base neck to crotch measures 49cm, good quality and thickness. Body is thick neoprene, sleeves are thinner material. My 4.5 year old is quite tall and skinny, usually wears 5-6 clothes. I ordered suits in L(4) and XL(5-6). XL is way too big for her, L is about right with room to grow, legs are bit wide since she's got skinny legs and body bit loose. Size down would fit her skin tight like on the picture, but decided to keep L.
As it’s winter the swimming pool can be chilly at times. I bought this to help keep him a little warm.
My nearly 4 year old was constantly getting a bit cold during her 30 min swimming lessons so looked online to find something to keep her warm. This does the job! looks lovely on, seems to be very good quality. washes well, fits her well, not overly thick and easy to put on, take off over her normal swim suit. Recommend for keeping little ones warm in the pool.
