How many parents counted down the weeks until the kids finally went back to school??? I did this time but that was due to the fact that the weather was quite bad and mine had almost 7wks off as they broke up earlier then had 2 inset days at the beginning of term.
We know though it’s this stage that we go on our hunt for the dreaded uniform. Generally every who buys it knows that well before the October school holidays arrive most of it has already shrunk, been stained or have shoes left scuffed with holes in the soles that never seem to last as long as they did when we were younger. We all know the drill by now.
Well this is where Asda comes into play for me, I find that their uniform tends to last alot longer and wash well without shrinking or fading and if you have a look from the uniform homepage you will see that they now sell range of hello kitty which is so cute and different.
Asda’s sizing is superb. They supply a slim fit, normal fit and plus fit which is handy for me as a mum since my kids are all of different sizes. I have Kayla who is really skinny and normally everything is baggy on her but the slim fit trousers are perfect. Nathan is of average size so the normal style range fits him and I have to say they are true to size in length as well, so don’t go a size bigger unless you are buying for next year. Terry and Lauren are of a bigger build so they fit the plus fit range. Terry said that the trousers are a lot more comfortable and don’t cut into his belly like some and once again the length was true to size.
Thankfully Asda keep the prices low but the quality high, the size ranges are also good and they do several different colours so you do have a choice.
It’s not just uniform that gets ruined though, shoes they get kicked out, scuffed, soles start to split, and so once again asda is the place for me. I have found that the stitching doesn’t come undone meaning they last longer and they seem to be quite hard wearing especially with younger kids and their antics.
