Like most busy working moms, I rely on online shopping to get everything from groceries to clothing to school supplies. And, like many of you, I’m also wary of buying shoes online — from experience, we know that the fit of a shoe differs from brand to brand.
That’s why I created a handy Sizing Chart printable so you can rest assured that the Dreamy Dancers shoe you purchase will properly fit your little dancer.
Here’s how it works:
First, print the Sizing Chart on a piece of 8.5” x 11” paper and double check that it printed properly by placing a credit card in the assigned box — if the card fits perfectly, you know that the sizing chart is properly configured to measure your dancer’s foot.
Then comes the possibly tricky part! Have your dancer stand barefoot against a wall and place her foot, beginning with her heel, on the sizing chart. Then, have her put her full weight on that leg. This ensures that her little foot spreads out as it does when she’s standing, walking, and most importantly — dancing!
Grab a pen and make a mark where her longest toe lands. Next, be sure to measure the opposite foot as well! It’s incredibly common for kids to have feet of two different sizes. Be sure to purchase the pair of shoes that matches the biggest foot.
Dreamy Dancers run true to size — this means that your child’s dance shoe will fit like their regular shoes. It may be tempting to purchase a pair of Dreamy Dancers that are a half or whole size larger than what your child measures — but, I strongly advise against this. Dance shoes should be snug (not tight!), which means that the size indicated on the Sizing Chart is the size you should purchase for the best performance and comfort.
When a dance shoe is too big, you run the risk of blisters, foot pain, and even a shoe flying off during class or a performance. When you purchase a properly sized Dreamy Dancers shoe, you can rest assured that your little dancer will comfortably dance her heart out without chafing or pain.
If you have any questions about properly sizing a Dreamy Dancers shoe, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
Because each Dreamy Dancers dance shoe is custom made for your little dancer, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns.
