Given the household popularity of my shirt sleeves to leggings repurposing venture, I was very excited to receive a pair of proper Leg Huggers in the mail from Agoo Apparel to review. Emma immediately commented on how much fancier they were than my hack version, and asked if Lily would share them with her. Lily is pretty amenable to sharing these days, so both girls had a go at modeling:
Johnny is in the picture because he wanted to be in the picture. He is very handsome, though, don’t you think?
I love that these leg warmers fit my five month old and my nearly-four-year-old; they would even work as arm warmers for an older child. The top and bottom are elasticized to help them stay put. Emma is a super-sensory-sensitive kid, and the elastic at the top of the leg huggers irritated her; it didn’t seem to bother Lily at all. The design on the pair we tried out meant threads on the back for little toes to catch on if you aren’t paying attention when you put them on, but I think it’s worth the cuteness of the design.
Leg Huggers are especially popular among cloth diapering families, since you don’t have to worry about fitting pants over cushy cloth diapers and the diapers are cute enough to leave uncovered. The Leg Huggers we tried out are made from bamboo, which has antibacterial and UV protective properties, as well as being hypoallergenic and odor resistant. There are boy styles as well, including a very cute car/truck design.
