My 12 year old normally wears a size 14, so I was a little worried that it would be too small, but it's perfect! It's adjustable, so you can make it as long or short in the torso as you want. It's great because she's too small for the small women's, but kids sizes tend to fit weird. This suit fit perfect & the quality is great. My only thing to not is that the tag is on stripe side, so you need to cut it out. Also, the seam when wearing the floral side is sewn so you can see a little of the stripe side at the bottom, but that doesn't bother me.
