I didn't go as far as to measure my daughter for this dress - we just picked a size 2 and it fit beautifully. The quality is far superior than the price. You absolutely get more than what you pay! They company messaged me wanting me to provide measurements so that they could make sure it fit - when I told them my child was nearest a 2 they said ok and shipped the dress out immediately. I would def order from them again! Thank you for the great customer service.
