Eco-Friendly Bamboo Leg Huggers Review & Giveaway!

As a mom of a potty training almost-3-year-old, finding tights that are easy to take on and off has been quite difficult. When I received my Fantastic Fuchsia Leg Huggers in the mail, I knew that things were going to get a whole lot easier!

Abbigaile is a very active toddler, even though sh
e likes twirling her hair and pink frilly things, you can often find her jumping, running, and playing with any ball imaginable. She's a tomboy at heart, and is very rough on her clothes. Most durable clothing is too scratchy, then she breaks out in hives and certain blends give her a rash. With her sensitive skin, and I need to be careful with the materials she comes in contact with. We've never owned anything made of Bamboo fibers, but wow these are soft! When we opened the package she beamed a huge smile, and told me they were her tights. So we put them right on, and we were both in LOVE!

"Oooh mommy, deez are soft!" she said, as she stroked her legs. "And look, iz a HEART! Iz two hearts! And more hearts.. Iz mine hearts on my legs!" as she points out the two hearts on her thighs and the row of hearts around each ankle.

They are super soft and comfortable,
breathable, UV protective, odor resistant, and naturally antibacterial. If that's not good enough, they are made with no chemicals or pesticides, so I can feel comfortable knowing she won't break out with them on her little legs!

They are available in 13 fun and stylish patterns, from Retro Argyle to Popsicle Parade as well as two solid pink shades, for more conservative little ladies.

My husband thinks they're adorable too, (but blushes every time my daughter wants to show her upper hearts off), but after we remind her she's a lady- she giggles and drops the hem of her dress. We've washed them several times already, and I am very happy to say that they wear and wash VERY well- no pills, unraveling or fading; other brands have not withheld the extreme activities of Miss Abbigaile at all! I must say I am definitely impressed with the quality of this product! BUY IT!

i like the popsicle parade- They provide a natural UV protection along with an anti-bacterial and moisture wicking properties. Bamboo is hypo-allergenic, making it non-irritating for sensitive skin

ky2here February 01, 2009  

Okay, someone else already selected it but I like the retro bullseye. Chocolate and blue are great colors and it's nice to see the green circles for extra punch.

jdine February 01, 2009  

Leg Huggers wick Away Moisture. I like the butterflies burst pattern.

Ally February 01, 2009

They're great for Elimination Communication with babies, not just bigger potty-training kids.

I read that Due to bamboo fiber's cross section which is composed of a matrix with various microscopic gaps, bamboo fiber is more breathable, comfortable and thermal regulating than cotton, wool or any other synthetic fiber thereby keeping you cooler, drier and more comfortable!
I like the Bows delight!!

I love that bamboo is sustainable and can be made super soft. These are so handy for my little girl - changing diapers is a breeze. Also nice for some extra warmth under her pants this time of year.

Bamboo is fascinating; it holds the world's record as the fastest growing plant and is probably one of the world's best sustainable resources. My favorite leg huggers are the Circus Parade.

Bamboo fiber is softer than the softest cotton, it has a natural sheen to the surface and I like the bows delight

Amy February 03, 2009  

They're made from bamboo and bamboo apparel is good for our ecosystems because bamboo does not require pesticides, insecticides, or fertilizers, and does not involve the use of genetically modified organisms.

My favourite are the butterfly burst.

It was funny your joke ( I really hope it was a joke!) about your husband. I mean what does he do when he changes her diaper or clothes. Or helps her to potty train. but I'm sure you were joking what else could it be otherwise it would be creepy!

Have a fortuitous day.

Becky February 03, 2009  

I really like the fact that they "wick away moisture" and that they are "uv protective". The longer we can protect the girls skin from uv rays the better.

My favorite pair is the Rainbow Hearts.

Thanks so much!

Sarah February 03, 2009  

Retro Argyle are the cutest! I want a pair for myself:)

Sarah February 03, 2009  

I forgot to leave my fact....they are great for crawling on hard surfaces...which I would nee mine for right now. I like the retro argyle. So cute!
