To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read the review from the person who bought a size 14 for her 10 yr old, and so placed my order for size 16 for my 14 yr old, only to find it was way too large. I have an average size 14 yr old, and we are reordering in size 14. (My son likes the style,logo.) Perhaps they have changed the product sizing since that reviewer commented. In April 2015, it is NOT running small. It is true to size.
Bought a size 4 for my smaller-than-average 5 year old and a size 8 for my taller-than-average 8 year old (both are skinny). Perfect fit for my 5 year old, but the sleeves were too short for my 8 year old. Width-wise, I'd say both are accurately slim fit, but not super-tight, performance fit if that's what your child is looking for. Quality/weight of fabric seems good though we haven't used more than a handful of times at this point. I'll update if the rashguards aren't holding up to longer-term saltwater use (which is our primary use).
I bought a similar swim shirt for my son about 5 years ago, same brand. It lasted without any wears, snags, or stains which was awesome. This shirt had a large tag on the waist and of course I ripped it off and of course it made a hole. How about no tag...completely unnecessary. I didn't send it back because it's unlikely to become a problem but I prefer my kid to wear clothes without holes, so...
Well made and looks good. It says it's a slim fit, which works for my slim boy, but the sleeves are too short. My son is just starting to fit into some size 8's (most are too big yet).I ordered an 8 in this shirt & I think a 10 would have been a better fit.
Fit was perfect. Love that it's long sleeve so arms are protected from sun. Color has held up well. Only downside is that seam began to unravel on bottom after a few uses. Otherwise happy with the shirt.
