As you may have noticed by now, I’m a bit of a fan of Lindy Bop. Their super affordable, gorgeous dresses are a great alternative to my more fragile vintage dresses and I love the huge choice of styles, prints and colours. I have quite a few in my wardrobe now, but theres always room for more! I was absolutely delighted when Lindy Bop offered me a dress to review and even happier when they let the girls have a dress each too.
Lindy Bop Kids is just like the super fabulous grown up version, but in ridiculously cute smaller sizes. The range has sizes from 3 years to 12 years so your little girl can dress as well as you! I decided to let the girls get involved in choosing their own dresses and after a lot of looking we chose 3 dresses that co-ordinated really well. The girls both went for polka dot Audrey dresses and I chose the Joy dress, a gorgeous turquoise floral shirt dress to match.
I’ve never had a problem with the fit of Lindy Bop dresses and always order a size 14 which has worked well for me so far, so my dress was just right for me as usual. I also went for the girls usual sizes I got a 3-4 years for Lila and 9-10 years for jess and the fit was perfect on them too.
The kids dresses were made from a lovely thick cotton, with a tiny bit of stretch. They looked really lovely and flared out just enough to give them a cute 50s look, without being too full to stop them running around and having fun. Each dress came with a pink belt which I think makes them look even cuter.
The girls wore the dresses all day and not only ran around in them, but also built a den and rolled around on the grass and the dresses still looked great. I like the hard-wearing thicker cotton and the comfortable fit. They both absolutely loved their dresses and really want me to get them more. With new styles and colours coming in every week I can definitely see a few that I know will be perfect for them.
As well as being OK for every day wear I also love the idea of the girls wearing their dresses for more formal occasions and parties. They would also look great for little flower girls and bridesmaids if you are having a vintage wedding, especially if paired with the matching adult dresses. They can also be teamed up with the matching petticoats, which are absolutely adorable!
The best bit is that each dress only costs £14.99. I hate spending loads of money on kids clothes as they grow so quickly, so these are a really good price for me.
