We are doing uniform tomorrow. I am dreading it. I not sure if i will be able to get d's a shirt that is long enough without being a tent. He was taller than all the teachers last year. He is going into year 9. He had a huge growth spurt since the end of school last year.
Dd2 and dd3 will need new shirts too. Dd2 is going to have them same problem she is almost as tall as all her teachers and she is only in gr 7 so we still need primary uniforms. She is a ladies 12 too.
Thank God the next three are a smaller build so I shouldn't have any issues.

I recently read/heard somewhere that there is in fact no industry standard in this country when it comes to clothing size/measurements... it is up to each individual company to decide.
I have clothing ranging from a size 10 (which are a pair of denim shorts which are very loose! So according to that brand I am an 8!) to winter jackets in a size 16. I assume I am a 10-12 but who knows

Perhaps they're starting the sizes at 6/8 for the teeny tiny girls that are the size of an 9 year old, so by the time you get to your daughters size (above average at 13) they're up to a 22?

Yes theory goes that they don't do ladies sizes so continue heading up from a girls 16.
In saying that my 10yr wears girls size 8 to 10 but needs a girls 16 in uniforms.

So that's why I wore a size 14 or 16 school dress when I was probably size 8-10! I always thought mum just expected me to be overweight by year 12.
