My daughter is a skinny mini! I tell you – even pants with the extenders sometimes don’t work – often we’re wearing pants too short because the waist doesn’t fit otherwise. She’s 4.5 and length is a 4t-5t, but she has some “stretchy” shorts that are 2t for waist! Anyway, when I had the chance to review LivyBelt, I was very excited to see how they would work for us.
By the way, photos are on the way – my computer and camera don’t mix at the moment. But they truly are worth while for a skinny kid!
From their description:
the LivyBelt™ waistband, is a unique fashion accessory for kids. The LivyBelt™ eliminates the use of buckles, snaps, clasps or belt loops while still keeping skirts, yoga pants, leggings and even jeans in place.
The traditional LivyBelt™, called the “Lexi” style—for both boys and girls—offers the extra support little ones need in the waist, while not changing the look of the ensemble. Simply place around the waist, and let the shirt fall over the Lexi belt. Voila! No one will know your little one is sporting the LivyBelt™.
olive&nell offers two styles for the mini-fashionista who likes to mix trendy colors and patterns: the “Lizzy,” and the “Lila,”—which offers a stylish bow. Lizzy and Lila styles are meant to be worn over shirts and bottoms, creating a fun fashion statement. Both styles offer the same reinforced waistband, but worn on the outside of the clothes, these styles add extra flair with fun patterns to match any child’s personality.
My daughter tried all three and her Lexi style – while she wore it mostly over her clothes – creating her own style, it has also been useful for day-to-day clothing. I like it to the half tops that many women use during pregnancy – keeps the pants up and covers the belly when you lift your arms. The Lizzy and Lila styles are also great for heading to the park – while we have a family rule that shorts are worn under skirts (pervs out there unfortunately) , shirts also are an issue for kiddos playing – so this helps keep the shirt in place as well.
These wash and wear well and are durable! Buy them for your skinny one (these are best for those with up to 25” waist, but bigger than that and your kiddo probably doesn’t lose their pants – at OliveandNell.com
