Hanes Girls' Thermal Underwear Set
Like Mommy, Like Daughter
Make your daughter feel special by choosing a set of thermal underwear for her to bundle up in as winter months hits with dropping temperatures.
Hanes thermal underwear sets are especially great for children because they can be worn underneath clothing when spending a day outdoors as well as doubling as pajamas at night while working to reduce the cost of heating, particularly now with electric, propane, natural gas, other oil-heat alternatives, and burning wood in fireplaces or wood-burning stoves/heaters.
Adult and children alike can wear thermal underwear as pajamas in addition to an electric blanket with heavy blanket over the electric one to hold in the heat of an electric blanket then set the thermostat to raise the heat temperature about 30mins before it is time for everyone to wake up, start breakfast, and dress for work/school before eating breakfast, rinsing dishes, brushing teeth/hair, and heading out the door for the day. *It is best to purchase electric blankets that have a sensor heating system as well as an automatic shut-off timer so there is no fear throughotu the day as to whether or not the blankets were turned off or not. The same is true of coffee makers for those who use drip pots versus French Press, Moka pots, and Espresso machines with burr grinders.
Keep a few pair handy and always purchase an extra set or two larger than your chlid needs at the time in order to have a pair ready to wear when the next growth spurt hits. It is also helpful by having a set to wear beneath top clothes in the coldest times of the winter months to keep your child snug and warm all day long.
The sizes tend to be different for each child/adult because we are all shapes and sizes from short to tall and then wider hips to narrower ones, longer torsos to shorter torsos, etc... It is best to have your child with you to try them on in order to assure the right size and also take into consideration any shrinkage when washing for the first time as most clothing with any amount of cotton material in it tends to shrink from a little to a lot.
Hanes Thermal Underwear last a long time and are practically indestructable. I purchase new sets each winter for my husband, both daughters, and myself. We wear them under outdoor clothing and have a set that are used for pajamas in order to allow the lowering of the thermostat for nighttime when everyone is in bed asleep beneath electric blankets (again, all electric blankets have sensor heating and auto-shut off to alleviate any fears as to whether or not the blankets were turned off the next morning).
Your child will outgrow the Hanes brand thermal underwear long before wearing them out and this includes the "hand-me-down options that many families implement in order to save money. I have had one pair go through 4 to 5 hand-me-down levels and as long as the washing directions were followed, these thermals from Hanes still had plenty of wear left in them; however, in order to ensure the thermals hold their appearance and wearability, it is extremely important to follow the washing instructions Hanes includes with every set of clothing sold under the Hanes name. Hanes stands for quality and it is no doubt considering how much wear the clothes can get before it's time to toss them away rather than hand them down to a child who needs them.
