Why Moms Love kids Clothing Subscriptions

Posted on February 12, 2018

The benefits of using a monthly children’s clothing subscription box are plentiful.  If you’re familiar with the extremely popular Stitch Fix for adult clothing you probably get how this generally works.  You pay a monthly styling fee to receive a personalized box of stylish clothing and accessories each month.  Decide what you love and want to keep then send the rest back in a prepaid shipping bag, only paying for what you keep.  The styling fee is credited toward your purchase and you’ll usually receive a discount if you keep the entire shipment.

There are a few kids clothing subscriptions out there, with slight variations between each.  But They all solve the same problems many parents experience when it comes to baby and kids’ clothing.  Here are just a few reasons why using a subscription service for kids clothing just makes sense:

1. Kids Outgrow Clothes Fast.

It’s no secret that children need constant wardrobe updates.  Baby clothes sizes match their age range: Newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, and so on.  This means you’ll need to replace outgrown clothing an average of every three months for the first two years of their life.  Toddlers outgrow clothing  slightly less often but you can be assured you’ll still need to replace outgrown clothing multiple times a year.

Clothing subscriptions provide convenience to this requirement. Bringing children along on a shopping trip can be exhausting, especially if you have multiple little ones.  Subscription boxes allow you to receive an assortment of stylish and trendy outfits in your child’s size, based on your style preferences, and to shop from the convenience of your home.

2. Try BEFORE You Buy.

Some may argue that shopping for baby and kids’ clothing online is a good enough solution to the frustration of shopping at brick and mortar stores with children.  Although online shopping is a solution it is not the most convenient.  You still have to find time to search different online shops and if you don’t like the items or they don’t fit once they arrive you’ll have to request a return label or bring it back to a local store anyway.

With a kids clothing subscription you have a personal stylist who keeps track of your child’s style preferences and size and has a full time job of finding the most adorable, trendy and stylish outfits for your child.  Most subscriptions don’t charge shipping, only charge for what you keep, and refund the monthly subscription fee if you make a purchase.  Prepaid shipping bags are sent with every delivery for you to send back what you don’t like or what doesn’t fit BEFORE you’re charged for them.

3. Subscription Boxes Make it Easy to Find Better Clothes.

Whether you’re doing your back to school shopping at local malls and department stores or searching the internet for the best Cyber Monday deal on kids clothing, you’re likely to buy the same items most other parents are buying for their little ones.  This is due to a few brands having control of almost the entire children’s clothing market.  You know the brands; Carter’s, OshKosh, Gymboree, Jumping Beans, H&M, and a few others like The Children’s Place.  Kohl’s, Target, Macy’s, and just about any big retailer you can think of offer the same brands.  It’s likely many kids can be found wearing the same outfits as other kids on the schoolyard.

The personal styling that comes with a kids clothing subscription box brings a uniqueness to your child’s wardrobe that would be hard to accomplish with more traditional shopping options.  To learn more about some of the brands you may find in these boxes check out the Brand Spotlights on our Blog.

4. More Time to Spend With the Family.

Time spent on those hectic shopping trips could be better spent on doing something you enjoy doing with your child.  Why not have personalized quality fashion items for your child sent for you to shop at home and use the spare time to go to the beach, park, movies, or any other kid friendly destination you actually enjoy?
