A couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be chosen to do a review for a remarkable, kid-friendly clothing line called Teres Kids. The Teres Kids web site describes their mission, saying:
Millions of young children experience tactile sensitivity, a condition that can make regular clothing feel awkward and uncomfortable. For these children, getting dressed can be difficult. Without the right clothes, even normal physical activity can become unpleasant.
At Teres Kids, we believe all children are unique, and that children’s clothing should always be comfortable. That’s why we’re committed to materials, designs and fabrication processes that feel great on all children.

And, after going over every detail in the samples we received from Teres Kids, I can honestly tell you — these are comfortable clothes.
We used a comparable pair of stretch leggings from a big-name retailer to demonstrate. Our comp (the pink stretch pants shown near the top of the picture) had a big scratchy tag and itchy seams galore. Seams around the waist band, down each of the legs… yuck!
The Teres Kids piece, on the other hand, was cleverly pieced so that the seams are on the outside! Admittedly, I was a little surprised at this feature at first, but the seams are so well made and use such a nice quality thread that the clothing really looks good! Let me show you another photo of what I mean… …continue reading
