Do you live outside the US? If so, here is a section just for you. You might be wondering which children's clothing shops offer international shipping. Here is a list of reliable reputable children's clothing shops which offer international shipping to most countries. Almost all of these stores I have shopped at myself and I can attest they are reliable and legitimate. Please note that I have only purchased domestically within the US from these stores.
Be aware store policies may change. I periodically re-check the information on this page by making a test cart at each retailer and updating this page as needed. All information is correct at the time of writing (date shown below title of article at top).
Reliable affordable children's clothing shops which offer international delivery
Janie and Jack
Children's clothing brand Janie and Jack is all about high quality really gorgeous clothes, for all ages from baby through teens. The prices are affordable considering the top-notch level of quality. Pricing is still a little bit higher than the other stores mentioned in this article, but the good news is that you'll find this is partly offset by a relatively lower cost for shipping (see below). They ship to most countries worldwide, and they handle their own shipping via a major overseas courier company, which was DHL at the time of writing.
To check on international shipping costs before committing, pick your country of choice at the top left of the Janie and Jack site (bonus: pricing will then display in your currency) and put your items in the cart. Then at checkout after entering your email address but before entering your full address or credit card details, you will be able to see the shipping fee. You may need to re-update the country in the shipping details at this point to ensure your cart auto-updates with the shipping costs. I noticed that international shipping fees at Janie and Jack are actually quite a lot cheaper than the other shops mentioned on this page!
If you're looking for a special item with a high-end look for your child or as a gift for a niece or nephew, then Janie and Jack is perfect.
OshKosh B'Gosh and Carter's
Both OshKosh B'Gosh and sibling store Carter's ship internationally to almost all countries via BorderFree. Both stores have lovely clothing; however, I'd recommend OshKosh B'gosh since their famous overalls have that extra awesomeness factor. Your kid will be the cool kid on the playground.
Both stores share a combined cart and shipping rules so if you want to get something from each store you can totally do that! As is the case with many other children's clothing stores, promotional codes for domestic orders cannot be used on international orders. To change shipping country, go to the bottom right of the site and pick the flag symbol to set your delivery country. You can see the international shipping cost at checkout without providing any information, even email. If you choose to proceed, you will then be directed to the BorderFree checkout.
Shipping charges from OshKosh B'Gosh and Carter's depend on weight and destination and can be a little on the high side since it's through third-party service BorderFree.
Pleats and Stitches
Pleats and Stitches is a family-owned U.S. brand of traditional and beautifully detailed classic clothing for the younger set - things you simply can't get anywhere else. Hand-smocking and hand embroidery are featured in most of their clothing. This is the place for special traditional pieces such as shortalls and heirloom dresses.
Pleats and Stitches, which is based at Etsy.com, delivers to many but not all countries. You can get shipping estimates for any item without needing to provide any information. To do this, when you're on the item page of interest, simply select the shipping country in the drop-down menu in "deliver to" . Pricing of items and of international shipping are surprisingly low considering we are talking about such carefully crafted items. This brand has excellent reviews on Etsy; these reviews are a strong indicator of reliability and quality.
French Toast school and dress code wear has high quality clothing for a surprisingly low price. Even if your child doesn't go to a school with uniform, I love the range of different styles of shorts and long pants for boys and girls. The girls in particular get even more of a range of styles, not only with pants but also with shirts, with all kinds of different options such as Peter Pan collar, picot collar, and so on. Items are well crafted and I've found they always come out of the washer and dryer beautifully; skirts are never wrinkled and polo shirt collars always lay properly flat. We love the French Toast blazer we bought for my son; he uses it for formal occasions.
In addition to ordinary school wear, French Toast also has a line of adaptive clothing for kids with extra needs that I have covered in another article.
The only negative is that the cost of international delivery at French Toast is very high. However, it works out much more favorably for larger orders than smaller ones, so if you're looking to stock up this may be worthwhile.
To ship outside the U.S., French Toast partners with BorderFree. To ship internationally, on the French Toast website select your desired shipping country using the flag at the top of the page before adding your items to the cart. If you change the shipping after adding items to cart, it won't remember the items in the cart and you'd need to start over, which is a bit frustrating. Once you have the correct shipping country and your items are in the cart, go to checkout and you'll be able to see the BorderFree shipping fee without needing to put in any information.
Please note that the French Toast shipping costs are on the higher end compared to other stores on this page. However, this is partially offset by the relatively low prices of their school wear, particularly compared to the high local costs of school wear in certain countries such as New Zealand.
Little English is all about classic traditional children's clothing. If you're looking for smocked outfits, formal photo clothing, or simply a special gift for your child or a young relative then this is a wonderful option. Little English ships internationally to most countries worldwide, which is wonderful to see.
Please note that both the items and the international shipping at Little English are a little more expensive than many of the other stores on this page. Outside the US, a flat rate international rate shipping fee of $50 is applied, which works out better for larger orders. On a positive note, for around an extra dollar, you can get package protection with instant resolution, which gives you an extra layer of protection - this is very helpful when shipping internationally. That package protection is something you can toggle on and off in the cart depending on whether you want it or not.
Little & Lively
Little & Lively is an ethically produced line of children's clothing by Canadian company The Kindred Studio. The clothing is beautifully made and you have the satisfaction of knowing that the items are locally sewn by seamstresses in Canada who are paid a fair wage. All fabrics are ethically sourced.
Little & Lively ships internationally to many countries. You will need to put in your email and shipping address (but not credit card info) to get shipping costs at checkout.
Shipping costs are average compared to other stores on this page.
There are several children's clothing shops which have international delivery. Janie and Jack and Pleats and Stitches each handle their own worldwide shipping, while OshKosh B'Gosh, Carter's and French Toast partner with BorderFree to ship globally. Little English and Little & Lively don't specify their shipping method.
