Tips When Buying School Uniforms

We asked our readers for tips on selecting school uniforms. Here are some of the great points and ideas they shared.

  • Consider ordering a size up so your child can grow into the clothing throughout the school year.
  • Check pants for reinforced knees. This helps make the pants more resilient which means longer-lasting wear.
  • Choose darker colors over lighter colors when you’re able. We all know those clothes will get stains on them.
  • Target has a great return policy if something doesn’t work out or fit well.
  • Check Children’s Place for bulk packs.
  • Look for crease-resistant fabrics. Less ironing for you!
  • Stain-resistant shirts are game-changers.
  • Scout local consignment shops for second-hand school uniforms. Here are some of our readers’ favorite local kids consignment shops in Greenville.
  • Don’t forget to check with your school’s PE rules. Your child may need a change of clothes for PE class.
  • If your child has sensory issues or disorders, look for clothing with adjustable waists, no labels, and no zippers or buttons.

My son has a sensory disorder and we have had great luck with target (cat and Jack).
