The Great Baby Bodysuit Review

21 September 2011

A while back, I must have alluded to the fact that we'll be moving soon. I've been expecting this all year and figured that by now, we'll have relocated from Houston, Texas to Calgary, Alberta (I'll give you a quick moment to process the weather difference). Moving on... In anticipation of this move, I bought most of the 9-12month clothes for the girls at the end of winter sales earlier on in the year and ended up with a box full of long-sleeve tees, sweaters and even a very cute bunting and puffy jacket. Well guess which family is still in 101degF Houston with 10 month old twin girls? *Points at self sheepishly*

As the girls still wear only bodysuits to daycare due to the Texas heat, I had to rush out and buy a few in 12M size to tide us through till move date. I used that opportunity to once again investigate the different clothing brands. Since we'll be moving from changing clothe sizes every 3 months to every 6 months, I wanted to know which brands will stand up to lots of wash and wear. I also wanted to get an idea of the size generosity of the brands. The results were a bit surprising but not totally unexpected.

Widest cut: Janie and Jack, Oshkosh B'Gosh and Garanimals by Walmart
Narrowest cut: Crazy 8, Carters (this one surprised me)
Shortest length: Children's Place

Putting it all together
Up until the last 2 months when the girls growth rate really slowed, Spice was 75th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for height while Sugar was 50th percentile for both weight and height. I needed to know which brands would accommodate Spice's weight and Sugar's height so I could avoid having them in 2 different sizes. The answer is shaping up

The brands I got were Baby Gap, Children's Place, Old Navy, Carters, Oshkosh B'Gosh, Garanimals, Janie and Jack, Gymboree and Crazy 8. (See how many stores I visited out of love for y'all :) )

So what do you think? Did I miss anyone? Tomorrow I'll delve deeper into the individual brands and how they stacked up.
