John Lewis Baby Silk Button Christening Romper, Cream
Sizing an issue
I bought this for my son's christening. Having read the other reviews I decided to order on the larger side. My son is 3.5months old. He is large for his age weighting approximately 17lb. As only 12-18months size was in stock and it was 2 weeks before the christening I decided to order this. It fits. It looks beautiful but I think John Lewis need to review their sizing guides. I am put off from ordering things in the future as know I cant rely on their sizing guide.

Beautiful classic style but not old fashioned
6/9 months size fitted 4 month old baby (14ib. 2) quite snugly if it is to be only worn once then this size is fine but the next size did not look over big on him either. Lovely material best to undo all buttons and slide baby feet first into garment rather than going over head.

Beautiful and very well made Christening outfit. Great value for money. My only criticism is that the sizing is WAY out. Order at least one size larger and possibly two to get the right size.

Beautiful but small
I purchased this for my son's christening. It is absolutely beautiful and I would recommend it. The only fault with it is that it comes up very small. My son is 10 weeks old and weighs 13lbs, he's quite slim but based on the other reviews i ordered the 3-6 months, it just fits!
If you are ordering, I would advise to order 1-2 sizes bigger depending on the build of your child.

Baby romper christening outfit
I bought this christening romper suit for my grandsons christening, really liked the look of it, however had to order a larger size. I has read previous review so was a bit concerned that my grandson would be uncomfortable on the day,he was fine suit looked lovely, we teamed it up with the little shoes. Overall good product, not that easy to get on and of though.

Disappointing Christening Romper
I was really excited when I came across this Romper for my son. It looks perfect on-line, if a little expensive but as it will be used on his Christening day could just about justify it!
My son is on the long size but weight on 25% percentile so ordered in account of this the 12-18 months bearing in mind he is 9months. Length wise it is fine, but we really struggled getting it on and particularly off. It is way too narrow at the shoulders and my son is very thin.
The material is crisp and after managing to squeeze in my son was pulling at it to get it off.
The buttons were really difficult to do and it looks as though it has been screwed up due to it being 100% silk.
On the front detailing the threads are sticking out.
Not a worthy product or a happy costumer. Will be returning.
