My friends dd is 3. She's big for her age but not by any means overweight. Df has been to buy her some new clothes and has found most items have been slim fitting/body hugging. Can anyone help? What shops are the best for 'bigger made' items both length wise and width? At the moment df has had to buy a couple of 'boys' hoodies so dd can be comfy which isn't really a problem but dd wants to wear the pink/sparkly stuff.
TU Sainsburys and Next are usually fine for normal fit clothes. Zara is small (European) only my 9th centile eldest ever fit properly into Zara. George Asda is fine too. River Island is very 'trendy' so tends to be the slim fit clothes. I find Joules clothing a very loose fit by trousers are great as have elastics and buttons internally. Mothercare is fine too. Hope that helps!
Verbaudet online sells trousers in narrow medium and wide hip widths.
My dd is normal/medium build but I don't like restrictive clothes.I have struggled to buy any clothing in Next this year which has been my go to for years. I was just finding everything too fasiony for a 3 year old. I wandered into Asda last week and bought up half the store loads of pretty joggers and non skinny jeans. Some nice tunics to wear over joggers. So cheap too, I was really impressed although there is quite a lot of character branded clothes which I don't like.
