Default Crochet top for 5 year old

I'm making a crochet top/tutu set for a little girl turning 5 next week. Will the crochet tops fit the average 4/5 year old? The customer doesn't have a measuring tape, so can't give me her chest measurement.
If it won't fit, any suggestions on what to do? I was thinking about a corset-style back, but wasn't sure if that would show too much skin.

Can you do a panel insert for under the corset? I used to call it a modesty panel when I did renaissance garb sewing so Nothing shows but corset =) Not sure if it's possible with crochet but could be worth a try.

The regular 6" crochet tops are too small for most 5 year olds unless they're really tiny. The larger size tops (8"-9") work perfectly - I layer 2 together and it provides enough coverage. Or you can serge a panel in to a 6" top to make it larger, works great for princess tutu dresses
