Any parent that shops for children’s jeans knows that it is the one of the hardest pieces of clothing to fit. It either fits in the waist and doesn’t fit in the length, or it fits in length and slides off the waist. Belts aren’t always a reliable solution for the second problem, as jeans can still slide off. As of yet, very few manufacturers have figured out a viable solution to this problem.
When buying your child jeans, you have to have them to try them on. Children have different measurements when it comes to their waist and length. You cannot always trust that the size listed is the one that will actually fit. This is true even if the label says something like 4T, and your child is four years of age. Because children are so varied in how they grow, it is almost impossible for jean manufacturers to get things right.
There is one smart solution that is gaining steam. The design is simple. Sewn into the waistband is an adjustable band with multiple openings. On the side are two buttons to hold the adjustable waist band in place once it is tightened enough to fit. In order to find this particular feature in children’s jeans, you need to look inside the waist band for two buttons on the sides of the waist. It is like having a belt on the inside of the jeans without having to fuss with one on the outside.
This design makes it easier to pass down clothing to a younger sibling. This means that the jeans will last a little longer barring any type of detrimental activity such as tearing or accidental bleaching. In the long run, this can save you money on children’s clothing.
Jeans are a very versatile piece of clothing, but they can be one of the hardest things to fit properly. One simple design feature can fix this problem; however, it isn’t available on all children’s jeans. It might take a little searching, but because it is adjustable, you get more use of these type of jeans for younger siblings.
