Baby Fashion Parade: Slugs & Snails Tights

This is not a sponsored post and I was not paid or obligated to write it in any way. I was the lucky winner of the lovely tights I’m showing off here, and I loved them so much I wanted to share them. All other clothing was bought (mostly on special). The toy keys were from secret santa. The baby cost way too much to discuss in polite company . . .

A little while ago, I was the very lucky winner in a Facebook competition run by the Irish company, Slugs & Snails which makes fabulous tights which are perfect for little boys (and rather cute for little girls too!). After finding a lack of bright, colourful tights for boys on the market, they set out to make some of their own, complete with a gorgeous range of designs.

Back in December, we received the 5 sets of tights which we won. Knowing that it would be way too hot to wear tights in a Brisbane summer, I ordered the 12-18 month size, which fortunately fits (though a little loosely) now at 6 months. It’s great knowing we’re going to get a full Autumn and Winter out of them. Although he couldn’t wear them straight away, Squirm was very pleased to receive them . . .

Since the weather has started to cool down a bit in Brisbane, we’ve had two opportunities to try the tights on. They’re pretty easy to put on, especially if you use the old ballet dancer trick of gathering them all up in your hand before you slip them over the feet. They’re lovely and thick and feel very strong. The colours are bright and they really are striking – Squirm got a number of comments when wearing them – especially the spider ones!

Since we were finally getting to wear them, we (I) decided a fashion show was needed. Unfortunately the model needed feeding and sleep before we got to model all five sets of tights, but we got some nice shots of the other four pairs.

These tights really are a lovely addition to Squirm’s wardrobe. I would highly recommend them, especially with the cooler months coming in Australia. Now if only you could get things this awesome in adult size . . .

  1. Those tights are great! And I have lamented the lack of tights for boys before … (but I’m still not convinced they’re for Mr BE despite what you said about adult sizes 🙂
