We don’t want to classify ourselves—and especially our kids—as one particular body type. Still, it becomes necessary when shopping for clothes. If an adjective works, the industry sticks to it because it stays consistent from one brand to another. So whether the word that describes your child is slim, tall, athletic, or husky, know that we’ve got you covered for whatever growth spurt your child is going through. And if you have a boy who is growing quicker than you can keep up with, here is our guide to buying comfy clothes for husky boys of any age.
Learning at home offers convenience that in-school learning doesn’t. After all, there’s no reason to dress for a certain type of weather or even wear socks and shoes. However, numerous studies show that children learn better and are more engaged when they actually dress for learning. The good news is that dressing for the part could involve simply switching out of pajamas and into regular clothing. In contrast, if the school normally requires school uniforms, your son may be required to wear a certain type of top or sweater. For ultimate comfort and fit, make sure the top isn’t too large but isn’t so tight that the collar irritates him while wearing it. Additionally, make sure it fits his age group, whether husky or not. A look that’s too baggy can not only look too casual but also feel uncomfortable and heavy.
Nobody wants to be playing a sport in clothes that are too tight or too baggy. After all, clothing that’s too tight can constrict movement, while clothing that’s too loose could interfere with movement and get caught up in things. Worse yet, it could even be a safety hazard and cause him to trip. Moisture-wicking, lightweight tops, and bottoms are ideal for sports. For colder temperatures, make sure he has a boys’ hoodie as well to wear for warm-ups and cool-downs.
Pajamas are one of those types of garments that we don’t put much thought into, unfortunately. Yet, they’re some of the most important parts of our wardrobe. After all, lack of sleep can make us irritable and affect every part of the day ahead. This is no different for kids since they need more sleep than adults. It’s our job to make sure we equip them with the tools they need for a good night’s sleep. As such, make sure you get him some husky boys’ pajamas that don’t fit so loosely that he has to readjust them when he changes sleeping positions. And consider the weather as well. After all, some flannel pajamas are great for wintertime, but in summer, he might be more comfortable in some cotton or linen pajamas that feel comfortable against his skin but don’t trap warmth.
During the weekends, whether he’s hanging out at home or hanging out with friends, he’ll want some boys’ husky pants that have some stretch in them but are also tough. A waistband that’s elastic can be extra comfortable as well. There are plenty of types of clothing he’ll feel comfortable but look stylish in. It’s all about fit, durability, and fabric. Clothing should fit comfortably, last through multiple washes, and be made of durable fabric that’s tough enough for him.
The trick to buying outerwear when you have kids who grow at the speed of light is to try to make it last as long as possible. A jacket might fit a little loose at first, but eventually, it will fit perfectly before getting too tight. The thing is, kids grow at different rates, and you may find that your son has a growth spurt that makes him outgrow a jacket before the next season. Always size up if you want it to last. But don’t make it so big that it lets too much cold air in or weighs him down because it is so heavy. Shopping at a retailer with a reasonable return policy will help ensure you can let him try it on and exchange it for a better size. And you can always donate the jacket after he grows out of it. There’s always a need.
No matter what your son’s future holds, he’ll need clothing that helps him perform at his best and makes him feel comfortable while doing it. And that doesn’t mean that you have to classify him as a specific body type or size; you just have to know how to read clothing labels in order to make them work for him.
