    Feels too big

    I bought this wetsuit for my daughter to use in swimming lessons in a cold pool.  I didn't want sleeves to hamper her arm movement.

    Unfortunately, though I bought according to the size chart,  it fits her older sister.  The size 6-7 years suit fits my average size almost 9 year old nicely.  She loves it and we ordered a smaller size for the little sister.

    I compared this Konfidence Child Wetsuit to a similar style  wetsuit we had and found that this one was longer and thinner.  This is a better shape for my girls.

    Since it closes with Velcro, this wetsuit is good for water parks where zippered wetsuits are not allowed.  The velcro on the shoulders has disadvantages too.  It pulls and makes a nasty mess when it catches hair.  Long hair either needs to be done up on the head or in a swim cap.

    Feels too big

    Haven't used this thing yet, just tried it on.  I ordered two sizes since I don't have time to mess around and found that my barely 7-year-old grandson is in between a 4/5 and a 7/8.  I don't know where the size 6 is, but that would probably be just right.  We are going to keep the 4/5 even though it is snug--but with the adjustable straps, it will work.  The 7/8 is way too long in the torso, yet pretty much perfect around the body.  Note my grandson is very skinny, so that means the 7/8 is VERY long and skinny.  Next, I also ordered two TYR suits with lycra arms, one 5T and one 7/8, so my grandson could wear whichever fits over the Konfidence.  (The Konfidence sounded too thin for his needs, so I thought I would add the TYR with lycra arms, still leaving his shoulders free to do butterfly stroke, but making a very thick layer of protection for his body.)  Unbelievable:  the 7/8 in the TYR is too small!!  Crazy man.  A 4/5 in the Konfidence is just right-to-smallish, but the 7/8 in the TYR is even smaller!

    Feels too big

    Got this for our 7 year old son to continue with swimming lessoons in the cold weather. He is skinny, weighing about 45 lbs and the suite is pretty baggy in him. Not a tight fit at all! it still seems to help his stay a bit warmer in the pool. So far he has done 6 lessons with it and the chlorine has not destroyed it yet.

    Feels too big

    I bought this wetsuit for my 21 month old triplet nieces who I take swimming.  The smallest size is a little big for them but not too bad.  I was hoping it would keep them warmer, but after a half hour they are cold, the same as without the wetsuit.  Wished I had bought a full body wetsuit instead for warmth, but It does help make them more buoyant which is helpful.

    Feels true to size

    My 4 year old was complaining the pool was too cold during her lessons. Now she seems comfortable and no longer complains during the lesson. Works perfectly for what we ordered it for.

    Feels true to size

    This keeps my grandson warm in the pool and ocean. The velcro at the shoulder closings is long enough that he will be able to wear this suit for quite awhile as he grows. He says it's comfortable and its bouyancy helps him swim better, too.

    Feels too big

    I'm really glad I read the previous reviews for this product. My daughter is 4 and the 2T-3T size fits her perfectly so it does run BIg. But we really love this suit! It looks great, keeps her warm at swim lessons, and all the other moms wanted to know where we got it. The best part is that she loves it and is really comfortable. Got to get this suit!

    Feels too big

    The sizing was way too big for my almost 7 yr. old.  I bought it according to the size chart on the web site, but had to return it for a size 4-5.  The smaller size fits just right.  My daughter uses it to keep warm during her swimming lessons in the winter.

    Feels true to size

    I got this wetsuit for my 4 year old daughter who has finally grown out of the smaller size from the same company, which she wore since she was 2-1/2. We love it! My daughter is tall for her age and we were delighted to discover that when Konfidence says 2 - 3, they really mean it will work until the kid is done being 3. This 4 - 5 size I expect will work well for the next two years. My daughter wears it primarily to weekly year round swim lessons in the chilly pool and after almost 2 years the old one still looks almost new. She loves the bright pink color and the dolphin logo.
