A question frequently asked, it can be tricky choosing the correct size clothing for your child. Our range from the North Face has both tops and bottoms for your kids, but how do you know which size is correct?

Thankfully, with the use of some measuring tape, you can identify the perfect size of clothing for your child before ordering. Since up to a certain age, there is little difference in boys’ and girls’ proportions, The North Face’s size ranges (XXS - XL) use the same measurements for both of them. Because of this, many of The North Face kid’s garments are unisex. 

The North Face’s Kids range covers all sizes from a height of 100 cm up to 175 cm (5ft 9in), if any bigger you will want to begin looking at adult sizes.

The size chart for the TNF kid’s range is here.

It's worth being aware that the prices for XL sizes from The North Face are higher. This is due to the size - HMRC mandate that VAT is payable as they can be worn by small adults.


Similar to some children’s clothing within our range, the garments in our Teen range are largely unisex, with the same measurements utilised for both teenage girls and boys. You can measure a teenager’s sizing using the same method as a younger child below.

 In order to make the most of a garment, we recommend buying a size up from measuring to allow space for growth.

If you do not know how best to measure your child, you can take a look below in this handy guide, provided by The North Face themselves. Though the model used is a boy, you can follow these exact steps with a girl also.

If you’ve ordered the item and it still doesn’t fit, do not fret as we have an up to 90 day returns policy on all orders.
