SUPER Skivvies!!! Review & Giveaway

                                       (Image is from the Super Skivvies etsy  website.)

How cute is the Super Skivvies banner?  I just love it!  Steph is one creative and talented woman!  She was also such a pleasure to work with. Very sweet and informative.

I came across Super Skivvies while I was searching etsy for cloth trainers.  I was done with store bought pull ups and using disposables.  I wanted to find a trainer that was cute, functional, and well made.  Kylee is still blessed with cute little chunky legs (although they've slimmed down a ton as she's gotten older) and I didn't want any trainers that were going to leave marks on her leg.  I also wanted a pair that had sturdy elastic in the waist so they didn't slip off of her, but ones that were easy enough that she could take them off herself.  I loved the look, design, and structure of Super Skivvies so I contacted Steph about doing a review.

At first she told me it would be a few weeks before she could get a pair made and out to me.. so I began to wait patiently.  Then, she emailed me a day or two later and said she had a pair to review AND giveaway ready to be shipped to me. That made my day! And a few days later the mailman was attacked greeted by me down at the mailbox!  I tore into the package so quick and immediately went.. "Awwww". So Cute! Immediate love and it was hard to choose which pair to keep and which pair to give for the giveaway.  I let Tim decide and I'm SO happy with the pair he chose.



We reviewed the Springtime in Oogaville pair and aren't they SO cute?!  They are a size Small (2T-3T) and fit children approximately 25-35lbs.  Kylee is right around 30-31 pounds and they fit great with some room to grow!  (Rise: 16.5", Waist: 16.5", Thigh: 11.5")  Super Skivvies measurements are unstretched.  There is a lot of stretch in the waist and thigh area.  So you don't have to worry about any of those painful looking red marks.  Kylee has no indentations or markings when she wears these and I really appreciate that.

"Super Skivvies feature one layer of soft 100% cotton interlock in the body, a rayon (from bamboo)/organic cotton velour liner in the crotch area, 100% cotton interlock waist and thigh bands, and no-roll elastic encased in the waist.

Included is a removable insert consisting of three layers rayon (from bamboo)/organic cotton fleece. Just tuck the insert into the crotch lining, and your undies are trainers!"  (From the Super Skivvies etsy shop product description)






I love the insert that comes with this trainer.  You can leave it in for training purposes or take it out if you want just plain underwear.  And when you wash your Super Skivvies, you do not have to pull the insert out, it comes out during the wash cycle.  I love that feature!  I also love how soft the insert and crotch lining is.  Even after a few washes it still all feels as soft as when we first got it!  You can also purchase additional three and five layer inserts on the Super Skivvies website!


Please note that Super Skivvies are NOT an alternative to diapers.  With the insert in the trainer there are five layers of protection which is enough to contain a single accident.  Kylee has had one accident while wearing her Super Skivvies (not a very big one) and the insert did a very good job of containing most of it and the body of the trainers was barely wet.  


So in finishing, I must say that we LOVE our Super Skivvies and plan on purchasing a couple more pairs!  Kylee really loves the "waindow haws" (rainbow hearts) pair! 


       SOOOO.. lucky readers you.. Steph has offered a little something-something for you guys!  I have a little "package" of goodies to send to one of you!  What does it contain you ask?


 (And a cute little sheet of stickers -- not pictured)


You will get a size small (2T-3T) pair of Super Skivvies, a 10% off code for your next purchase, an informational booklet, and some fun stickers! How great is that??! And how cute is that print?  Bacon, Eggs, and Toast! Yum and Adorable!
