If you, like me, have a small child who refuses to wear anything except full, matching, pristine football strip even on the coldest days this fair country has to offer, you may be familiar with “skins”.
These are close-fitting, long underwear, usually black, designed to keep today’s young football/sports fanatic warm when it is sub-zero and yet they must rep Arsenal in full colours or all hell will break loose.
I had a swan about in various sporting outlets for some suitable technical “skins” for a 5 year old and just sort of got lost in a sea of unknowable sizes – will a “Jnr S” fit Sam? Or is he more a “Jnr M”?
They arrived and they are completely faultless – soft, stretchy, easy to put on; warm but not too warm because when those kids start zooming about they don’t half generate some heat.
Size 5-6 fit my average-sized 5-6 year old perfectly with some room to be more 6 than 5. If you know that your child is slight compared with their classmates, maybe size down.
