Sainsbury's Tu

When it comes to clothing, quality is key for our Mumsnet users - for themselves, their children, and their families. So, when there's a brand like Tu that offers durable yet affordable clothing without compromising on quality, it's no surprise that it's a hit. Tu, Sainsbury's own clothing brand, ticks all the boxes for many of our users, providing a wide variety of styles and sizes to suit everyone's needs, tastes, and budgets.

I am frequently impressed with their stuff, especially the quality…


Plus, the convenience of being able to pick up outfits during your regular Big Food Shop - both online and in store - makes Tu a one-stop shop for busy families.

Naturally, our team at MNHQ have been collecting the top Tu buys made by Mumsnet users from our Talk boards. We’ve gathered all the recommendations up and put together this roundup of the most popular items you’ve been buying from Tu recently. Keep reading to find the top picks that’ll leave you saying ‘Mumsnet made me buy it’. 

Let’s start with this bright pink, 100% cotton, corduroy A-line mini dress that’ll add a touch of charm to your wardrobe (and turn a few heads while you wear it).
