Having a teen can be a tricky just by the mere fact that they are "a teen", no fault of their own, and no fault of the parent, its just the way it is, emotions of all sorts, for all sorts of inexplicable and all round frustrating reasons!
The additional problem of having a Teen that doesn´t fit into your standard size clothing, really shouldn´t be an issue, especially nowadays, but it still is, buying a size or two larger for a 12 and a half yr old is simply not always the solution, the teen knows it and we know it, granted, to cater for all shapes, especially during these testing times cannot be an a) financially and b) logistically doable affair but surely there is a way! Granted, again, there are labels that are going up in sizes but quite frankly these, more often than not, are those gorgeous labels that cater for the super slim child, and although it would probably be slightly easier to have one of those in this case, I don´t, I have two healthy, strong, gorgeous and not so slim preteens, who are not so keen on over-sized, ill fitting clothes and my girls definitely are not alone in size, I see from their classes that their are plenty bigger kids, taller, sturdier, not overweight but certainly not skinny.. its hard to find elegant, stylish and unique clothing for them.
Luckily we have Hilda Henri right here on our door step, this is one of those few companies that have managed to create styles that seem to suit and fit a multitude of sizes. Their clothing is a mix of elegant and super funky, although my daughter perhaps does not fit her age size in all the designs, she can wear a size or two up, and there is no feeling of discomfort or oversizing on her part - she loves the colours, the styles and the detail.. and personally I think it looks great too!
ITS ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS
