Whether your little guy is carrying a ring down the wedding aisle, headed for his baptism or putting on his first musical recital, he'll need a good-looking boy's suit to make him feel like the man you know he is inside. In the same way, your little girl needs a pretty formal girl's dress for when it's time to scatter flower petals during a wedding or dress up for church. All too often, though, getting young kids into formalwear can be like pulling teeth. Children don't like doing things they find uncomfortable and improperly fitted suits and dresses for kids can cause chafing, itching and binding. The best way to get your little ones to enjoy putting on suits and dresses is to get them clothes which fit comfortably and look great on them. With all the compliments they'll be getting from the grown-ups at their formal event, they'll be sure to love getting dressed up whenever they can.
When it comes to picking out a suit for your boy or a dress for your girl, you might be tempted to keep things as inexpensive as possible. Kids grow up fast after all, and if they are just going to grow out of their clothes, why spend a lot of money on them? You can definitely buy children's formalwear that looks great without breaking the bank, as long as you make sure it fits properly. No matter how much they cost, clothes just won't look right if it's not properly fitted. Even plenty of adults don't get this, which is why you see grown men walking around with baggy jackets which hide their figures, and grown women in jeans two sizes too small. When measuring your child for a suit or dress, make sure they are wearing the undergarments they will wear under their dress clothes, which will ensure an accurate measurement. Use a flexible tape to measure the chest, sleeve, waist hip and length before you start shopping. Remember that the tape should not be pulled too tightly when measuring, or else the finished clothes will be uncomfortable.
