Yes, they shrink, but...
Weird sizing aside, these bodysuits are adorable. The designs are refreshing (how many construction and/or dinosaur outfits does one baby need?). The material is soft and has weight to it. My son hasn’t worn them yet so I can’t say how long they’ll last, but the quality feels pretty good from what I can tell. Based on all the shrinkage reviews, I bought the 18-24m size for my 10 month old. Right now he’s on the lower/middle side of 9-12m for most brands (few 9 months still fit, but we’re pretty much into 12m only). I figured one of three things would happen: 1) they shrink two sizes and he can wear them now. 2) they shrink one size and he can wear them in a few months when I was wanting. 3) they shrink a normal amount/none and he wears them when the time comes. After washing, they did shrink almost to his 12m Carters size (white one in pic). They are a little wider and the arms are longer. I’m thinking he’ll get to wear them in a couple months so it works out for us.

Long story short, I think these are worth a buy if they’re on sale (since sizing is hard to pinpoint and they may not work out for exactly what you want). Definitely take the shrinkage into consideration and buy accordingly.
