I’ve got to take some trousers bought for my 3 year old back to Tesco because they are enormous round the waist yet fit him on the leg. ASDA ones are the same. NEXT are a better fit but 3 times the price.
Are supermarkets aiming their clothes at the chunkier child?

Regarding the “let’s laugh at the fat kids again” tag. It’s not about that.
I just find it a little depressing that a retailer the size of Tesco sells Children’s clothes that will only fit a larger child. Clearly it makes more economic sense to them to do it that way. Either that or this particular range of trousers are poorly sized, but it isn’t the first pair that haven’t fit him. My nephew (4 years old) is the same. He’s constantly wandering round with his bum showing because his pants are too big on the waist.Posted 6 years agorocketmanMember
Sizeism is alive and well on Cannock Chase. There was group of half-a-dozen 10-12 year olds on the Upper Cliff switchbacks on Saturday. The one in front had a FF and a small (but proppa) MTB; the one at the back was err…chunky and was pushing a BSO up the climb
“Come on yer fat b******!” shouted the one in front 🙂Posted 6 years agoSiBMember
Maybe your 3 year old is too skinny? Or the perfect size in your eyes but not the retailers/manufacturers?
Maybe the skinny kids went shopping first as they could run to the shop to get the correct sizes and the chunkier kids stopped at the sweet shop on the way so only large sizes left and you were just too late getting there?Posted 6 years ago
