Where can I buy bigger fit kids clothes?

My sons 11, average height but a bit chunky round the middle and I have a right problem finding trousers to fit as I end up having to get mens and having to cut about a foot off, so was wonderig is there a kids manufacturer than makes bigger fit clothes? Would you believe I got him some rollerblades to try and get him to get fit and lose some weight and the first time he goes out he brakes his arm, now he cant use them, ride his bike or do PE. Honestly I cant win.

1. They would be well unfashionable.
2. They would also probably be fairly worn.

Yeah I'd get him the next few ages up in kid's clothes if they fit, and you can wonderweb the hems. If not, have you looked on ebay for the american clothes? They usually show up larger anyway, and you can probably get a discount.

how about jog bottoms they have elastic waist and elastic around the ankle so it wont matter so much if they are to long, all the kids wear them, jd sports etc sell either full suits or just bottoms
#7
some sports shops do extra large and extra extra large boys tracksuits jogging bottoms shorts as my son was heavy build and i used to get his trousers for going out and school from the uniform shop when they go to secondary and they used to order them in or do the alterations but i just got the ordered ones as there wasnt much price difference

Try this ameriacn company http://www.landsend.com
in the boys section choose "big kid" then narrow down to "husky" they cater for larger children. I have used them for my " big and tall" hubby and a friend has bought from them for their larger son. The P&P starts at $15 but with the exchange rate and the amount you save overall can offset this compared to the lack of sizing /choice available in this country.

i dont think you will find a uk company jasmin had the same problem with 2 of my sons, and being totally undomesticated have spent years ironing wondaweb onto things, if you have to get school trousers the best i found for the fit in mens was tesco's mens cheap range, less than school trousers from other shops so not all bad :)

next do "plus fit " up to age 16 , just it dont come up as a search i had to manually look, and find the plus fit logo. May be easier to get a catalogue as stores wont stock range. But you can order on the phone to have delivered to store for free unless they in the sale. Sale in 2 weeks so maybe wait if you can take ya chances and what you need get from new catalogue after that.

i dont know if it helps but BHS did girls extra fit school trousers-daughter was going through a chubby stage! they were with the regular stuff just had a sticker on saying comfort fit or similar?
my mum spent years cutting down mens pants for my chubby brother! he is now over 6feet and while still well built he has been a lady magnet over the years!!

BHS do larger waists in their boys school range and the Gap do a husky fit in their jeans. I ahve had the same problem with my son but luckily he lives in a footie shirt and track pants most of the time which is much easier as someone said above.

i asked this question a few months ago,i couldnt find anywhere in the uk

i have also had the generous fit from bhs but they only seem to do school trousers in that size also someone on ebay sells scholl trousers in a generou fit (new)

now i just buy ladies size 10 petite (my daughter is 11)

maybe u could try about a 28s or a 30s in mens trousers


please let me know if u find anywhere
#14
I was going to say Next too, and I am sure that one of the online catalogue companies to plus size childrens clothes - try vertbaudet, la redoute, and littlewoods group

Hope this helps

Few trousers here too :thumbsup:

when i tried next their plus sizes still were too small

Why can't you do P.E with a broken arm?

How tall is he? My son is 11 and thanks to the medication he's on, has got a bit tubby. I buy him size 13 or 14 trousers and as he's tall, I don't have to turn them up or only just a little bit. Fingers crossed you can get him some soon.

Also, got to say, it is quite funny (exercise wise), that sort of thing usefully happens to me! My mom took the dog for a walk, fell over, broke her arm and when she went to physio, she had to use a walking stick for some exercises and broke her leg! Luckily the physio was based at the hospital - classic.

i'm sure you could play basketball, badmington, hockey, football gymnastics etc etc with one arm in plaster but for us mere mortals then i think it'd be a tad difficult.:thumbsup:

M&S can order you in a particular sized pair of trousers

thanks for all your help youve given me a lot of places to try, will let you know what happens, nice to know im not the only one with a chunky kid, most of the catalogue sites just seem to have regular sizes, Boden did have a few jeans in a wider fit but most were out of stock. Will def try plus fit and landsend and I never thought about trying sports shops for wider fitting stuff so really appreciate you posting, thanks.

why not just put him on a diet?

could easily lose a stone+ over the summer holidays.

before you flame me, medical studies have proven that kids that are fat round the middle and more prone to heart disease and obesity related cancers. do your duty as a parent!

yeah, exercise is good but diet plays a big part.
#24
if he doesn't do much sport already, try to get him into something he likes. i was never too big on sports but then i discovered frisbee and found myself playing hours a day and that made my legs much stronger

just to reply about why he cant do P.E. he only had the plaster on for 3 weeks, now hes just got a little splint support thing,hes still getting pain from it and has to start physio next week to get the movement back, he cant do P.E. incase he falls on it as its not fully healed yet, and if he falls on it again he'll have to have it pinned. It takes about 6-8 weeks to mend but it will still be weak for quite a while after. Ive told him he'll have to do some dancing every day to some music, I caught him dancing to High School Musical, I dont know how I stopped myself laughing, he was quite good, trouble is its not "cool" for boys to dance so he doesnt want his friends or brothers and sisters knowing as he thinks they'll laugh, kids! its all peer pressure!

I have put him on a diet, treats only on a Friday night, and ive stopped buying pop but it still takes time.

try not to give him too much fruit juice, high sugar content. if he doesn't like plain water, try giving him flavoured or sparkling flavoured water.

yeah, or even robinsons - the full fat stuff is only ~ 20 calories and won't give him cancer like the special "R" stuff........
