Where can I buy bigger fit kids clothes?

jasmin49jasmin49

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

    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

    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

    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:
