Rose Stripe Towelling Shorts and Sunhat review

Reviewed by Sam H – Frugi Crusader

The sunhat has revolutionized hats for Imogen our 18month year old. Hats used to be an item thrown on the floor very soon after they were put on, but now she doesn’t like to go anywhere without her striped hat. It’s a good job we have a Frugi sunhat hat from last year just so her stripy one can get a wash from time to time. And she looks so cute wearing it too.

When worn with the matching stripy shorts it’s a brilliant combination, they look so good together. Both are washing well and staying brilliantly soft. I find towelling shorts on a baby brilliant as they still look good even if you’ve left the nappy change a bit long and it’s leaked a bit or She has sat in a mess on the kitchen floor, it just seems to cope with that sort of thing and still look clean.

Raspberry Ripple Towelling Shorties – Review

Nessie T-Shirt & ShortiesIt’s so nice to have something (other than joggies 2 sizes too big) to put on Macie that does not require me to jump up and down to squeeze in her ample (cloth-nappied) behind.  She is a large 7 month old who likes her food and these delicious raspberry ripple shorties in the 6-12m size fit her well and have room for growth in all directions.  I particularly like the broad ribbed waistband which gives Macie a level of comfort she has not experienced in clothes, as she has a rather large waist to go with the ample behind.  Since she started to sit up for lengthy periods i’ve resorted to stripping her off in order to aid breathing!  This is not necessary with these shorties. 
Macie is the youngest of two girls and i’ve decided comfort is the no.1 priority where baby (0-12m) clothes are concerned.  Moreover, i don’t feel the need to dress her up in three frilly outfits a day and take photos like i did with my eldest daughter – so most of her wardrobe is unworn, being passed over for of a few pairs of the aforementioned joggies!  These shorts have added new life to this sorry situation and have become a firm favourite already.  They are both ultra comfortable and attractive at the same time.  Made of wonderfully soft, organic terry cotton and generously cut to lie on or below the knee, and with roomy pockets too (perhaps more useful to children in the older sizes).  I love the raspberry stripes which compliment the lavender waistband – and these particular shades of pink and purple, while being girly, look really unusual and not at all like their poor ‘highstreet’ cousins. 
Why am i dressing my child in shorts you ask when most of the country is covered in snow?!  Well, they are great for around the house, but i have been putting them over tights when we’re goin out which has turned out to be a perfect solution for us as this girl just will not keep socks on – no not even the brands that are known for staying on well.  I just couldn’t wait for the nice weather, which in Scotland, may be a long time coming…
So all in all a lovely and versatile item of clothing which makes my daughter even more cuddly than usual!!
