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.

So now I will go into the specifics about my kids - both boys I ordered the short sleeve style for a 2 year old and 5 year old.

My 5 year old has just moved out of 5T clothing this last month, so I got the XL (7/8). It was a sausage casing on him and he couldn't move. I am not kidding. The 7/8 is equal to a 4T.

My 2 year old - I ordered the Medium and it was tight all over, however he is very skinny. So I would say the medium is equal to a typical size 24 months infants garment, but the length is like a normal 2T. I have a feeling the large would be too long on him, so I am not ordering another one. If you have a 2 year old, make sure they are still able to wear 24 months. If you have a 3-4 year old, order a large. A 4-5 year old - order the XL. 5 Year old that is out of 5T clothing, order the XXL (I have not seen the XXL, but know that the XL is a no go situation)

The length may not be an issue after a washing, its possible it could shrink up and match the sizing around? I do not know, because we left the tags on and sent them back. hopefully someone that has washed this will leave a review if there is any shrinkage up in length.

The quality of the suit is great, very well made. Honestly, I think it would be too warm on the beach in the hot summer (thick). I am giving 5 stars for it being high quality. They just need to rework their size chart or say "fitted or loose" and give suggestions on that. I am a realist and knew this suit would be fitted, but there is a difference between fitted and being a tight sausage situation and not being able to move.

Do not go by the weights on the chart, they are wrong. Ignore the measurements for everything else too. Do the age thing I suggested and will get you into the ballpark of where you need to be.

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.

First off the smell... SO awful. Like incredibly harsh chemicals. I don't know if that is common with wetsuits as this is our first purchase but even a run through the washing machine couldn't put a dent in the smell. I'm hoping it wears off soon as my daughter is extremely sensitive to smells and immediately wanted to take it off.

Also the description is very misleading on which parts are actual neoprene and which parts are Lycra. The description states the front, back, sides and collar are neoprene (with only the sleeves Lycra) however only part of the front and back is neoprene. The whole side section (from armpit down the obliques) as well as the sleeves and collar, are all Lycra as well. so basically no water is trapped in the wet suit to get warmed up as it can pass freely through the side panels.

This wetsuit did receive fairly good reviews though so I'm hoping it stands up to the cold water test and my daughter doesn't miss out on all the water fun this week because she's freezing.

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.
I could fit 3 fingers sideways in the leg. and it was baggy all over the body. I have ordered the size down and will see how that fits him.
The actual wetsuit was much thinner than I was expecting, and if the new suit fits him will be able to give a better indication on whether this is suitable for him in size and usage.
The wetsuit style is very nice, and I like the fact that there is a zip at the front which gives him some independence when he needs to go to the bathroom

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.

He’s only worn it once since swimming was cancelled due to the pandemic but on the day he wore it he seemed comfortable wearing it.

It’s a zip front so easy to put on and take off. He seems to be able to moved freely too.

Material isn’t too think and not too thin.

I think it did the trick as he didn’t shake in the pool which is what he normally does if it’s cold.

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.
