Where do you buy clothes for your pre-teens?

Postby ESTA » Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:36 am

CAUGHT IN BETWEEN!!!
Hi!
My daughter is 11 years old and I am finding it difficult to get clothes for her. She is too big for the children's dept but too skinny for the adult's dept. Anybody else facing the same problem? :thankyou:

At 11, DD was getting most of her clothes from Gap. When she got to 12 & now 13, she buys from Mango & Cotton On. She likes going to Bugis too. Not Bugis Junction but the building across cos can get t-shirts at $10. And these t-shirts very colourful.

There was a similar post previously, maybe you can do a search.

Anyway my suggestion was and still is Zara kids. Very nice clothes for girls up to 152cm. You can also try the smallest sizes for muji and uniqlo.

What's that building called? Is it the one across N Bridge Road? I would be interested to explore it!

Next to Illuma (is that what it's still called now?). Last time used to be open air market. Now 3-storey high & air-conditioned too.

Thanks, I'll look for it. I walk down that stretch a few times a week but have never noticed it!

Opposite Bugis Junction, known as Bugis street (I think). A lot of teens clothes - not that high quality type but some clothings the material not too bad. You need to pick and choose and see what is appropriate.

That's the one.

Yes, quality not fantastic. But at $10...plus DD will outgrow very quickly so if can last a year already very good.
