Hand-me-down kidswear market picking up fast!

Aug '08
It is astonishing to see the flourishing market of hand-me-down clothes for children in various parts of the world. The number of buyers is unbelievable, who prefer to pay less for the fast and ever growing kids.

However, there are some guidelines that the customers can keep in mind before opting for second hand garments. One needs to pick up clothes that are made from quality fabric. Instead of purchasing garments manufactured using fine cotton, knitted material, voile that have very little life, the buyers must opt for thick materials like corduroy, denims or even waterproof fabrics that lasts long.

One more thing that is not to be forgotten while going for used cloths is looking at the tailoring pattern. The manner in which the outfit is stitched makes a lot of difference as kids deal with garments roughly. If possible see to it that there is a double layer of fabric on knees, elbows and shoulders.

Skirts, capris, pants, shorts and trousers having adjustable waistbands are a good choice as they are comfortable and even if the child puts extra kilos the parents need not worry.
By keeping all these important tips in mind you will be able to pick up best garments for your kid without being worried about the durability.
