Hanes Fashion Show

Hanes sent me a big old box of children's clothing! They emailed me to see if I would be interesting in checking out their new Hanes/Kids website (of course) but we didn't expect such a haul. The kids and I were pleasantly stunned to see a box loaded with underpants, undershirts, socks, tees and sweats. I always buy Hanes tees in the women's section of Walmart (yes I do go there, and yes I have all my teeth). It's so hard to find a normal, cotton, v-neck tee that curves in slightly at the waist if you're a big girl. And they have stacks of them for about $6! For that kind of cash I can handle getting my son's snot wiping hug around the waist.

The box was filled with size 7/8, which they aren't going to be wearing for awhile but I was still delighted to stock it away. Right now our 43 pound son eats more than I do so I imagine he's going to fit into these pretty soon. But there were a couple of tees in the box that fit son now and I was impressed with the prints. Nice, trendy but not too violent looking and according to son "awesome!"

Here's our photo shoot;

Me: Act like a Scorpion! Sting baby sting!

Me: Hoot like an owl!

Me: That's a magic gnome you have on your shirt!
Daughter: For me?! Magic mome?

Even though I've technically been paid in cotton, I will honestly say that I intend to check out the site. I really loved the gnome tee (only $8!) and I like that the shirts don't look like they will shrink up after one wash. Now if only Hanes could design some decent plus sized yoga pants in oh, say a size 18W...

I was checking out Old Navy's website the other day and I was pleasantly surprised to see a plus size section to shop from and was even more tickeled that I actually liked what I saw. There is also another store we have here that you can shop online as well called Avenue that I just love.

Dudette - since you seem to have an IN with the Hanes people tell them I NEED the freakin GNOME shirt in adult sizes....something in roomy size that will fit size 14 frame...not something designed for those freakin size 2's ("fitted" = show your rolls)

If Hanes is good enough for Jennifer Love Hewitt to wear - then I'll give them a try, too. Seriously - Hanes boy boxer shorts for women? EVERY NIGHT TO BED. Love them.
