    Default What do you think of envelope-neck t-shirts?

    Hi all

    Just wanted to ask your opinion - what do you think of envelope-neck style t-shirts? Do you think they are useful for babies/toddlers?

    I am not sure if it has many benefits other than easy to put on for babies.

    Thanks in advance,
    S

    other than as you say easy to get on a bub, im not a fan really and prefer a couple of press studs on the back or on the shoulder over an envelope style for my bubs

    I quite liked them for my DS as can freak out when you put shirts on, so anything that doesnt get stuck is a winner, sometimes press studs can be a PITA, but with envelopes once they are on thats it. But they dont hold their shape particularly well

    They're useful, but annoying after awhile as they get all stretched out of shape and you end up with a really big neck opening. I prefer 1 or 2 press studs either on one shoulder or at the back.

    And I'm not really a fan of shirts on babies too. Much prefer all-in-one s/s or l/s rompers.

    I agree they are easy but I also agree they stretch faster than any other.

    Oh wow thanks for the quick responses!! The hubby and I are starting an online business selling kids t-shirts so this input is really useful! We thought envelope necks would be a good selling point but by the sounds of it - it's not that great after all! Thanks a lot, everyone, you saved us the hassle of making something that noone would buy!

    i dont mind them as shirts but hate them as a body suit cause if bub is a bit long it gets puled down and the neckline sits around the chest.

    i dont particulary like presss studs on the back, mainly if bub is going to sleep in it and sleeps on their back, i think they would be uncomfortable

    They are convenient but they do tend to stretch out pretty quickly.
    I prefer studs on the shoulder
