They don't care much for pony tails, ribbons, headbands or even brushing their hair. But one thing they love is getting themselves dressed...over and over and over again. They aren't concerned with matching colors, fabrics, patterns or designs. In their world purple and orange go together and stripes and plaids make a perfect combination. Polka dots? Well, they go with everything of course.
While their sense of style is free-spirited, they do have some firm rules when it comes to their clothing. Sleeves should never reach past the wrists. Pants can be of any length, but shorter is better. Nothing too scratchy or stiff. Their "favorites" can be worn again and again regardless of how dirty or tight they may get. And the waist of any pant or skirt can not be too large or it will not see the light of day.
I was tired of looking at so many cute bottoms in my daughter's drawers that were never worn because the waist was too large, tired of giving away adorable clothes that were brand new, and frustrated with searching for pants that would be long enough and also fit around the waist.
I tried using conventional belts that attatched with a buckle, tie or snap; but my children became frustrated and changed into something more comfortable and easier for them to use. My middle child doesn't like anything tight across her tummy. If my school aged daughter wore a belt to school, she would not use the restroom out of fear she wouldn't be able to get her bottoms off or back on. So she just waited until she got home.
I decided there had to be a better way to get the most out of my children's clothes. Therefore, I designed the C.belly™ belt that would serve the practical purpose of securing bottoms to their waist but also be comfortable, easy to use and stylish. My children have been wearing the C.belly™ belts and they love them!
They can get dressed without any help! Potty training? Not a problem! The C.belly belts are cute and look great with all of our clothes. They are made with soft cotton so they are comfortable and don't scratch and irritate the skin. I usually leave the belt on the bottoms so when they pull them out of the drawer they are ready to go and don't require any adjustments. Now when my children try on clothes and the waist is too large they don't immediately take them off. Instead they ask me, "where is one of our C.belly belts!"
