Stock up on boy's underwear and socks
Your boy is no longer a baby. He's not even a toddler. He's growing faster than you probably ever imagined. That usually means new clothes, and often. Two things that boys go through the fastest with their clothes is underwear and socks. Making these items even trickier is comfort; if your boy isn't comfortable in either, he will be able to feel it in everything he does. At Kmart, find the perfect fit for much less than at department stores, and then stock up.
Boys underwear is never an easy thing to buy. Conventional wisdom says the younger the boy, the better you are with briefs. He's no longer wearing diapers or pull-ups, so in the event of an accident, briefs are the best way to contain any messes while also building your boys confidence in wearing "big boy" underwear. While making that transition, make it more fun by finding briefs that feature favorites from Disney or Star Wars. Many boys stick with briefs until their pre-teen years. It is then that they consider switching to either boxers or boxer briefs, which offer many of the positives of its namesakes. Briefs offer support where boys need it, but the leg cuffs can be irritating for some. Boxers offer little to no support, but provide a looser feeling than many boys prefer. Boxer briefs give the support many boys want and, with their length, are less restrictive. Boxer briefs have gained popularity over the last decade-plus for these very reasons. Brands such as Joe Boxer, Fruit of the Loom and Hanes produce quality products in all three styles and in all sizes, including those that won't be tight with husky boys jeans. All styles come in multiple colors, with the boxers and boxer briefs often found with patterns and designs. One thing that may factor into your selection is how well it fits under boys swim trunks.
The undershirts available come in different styles including the classic crew neck T-shirt, V-neck and A-shirt, better known as a tank top. Many boys, especially those who are pre-teens, like the A-shirt style. But depending upon how active a child is and how much sweat protection they want, consider the crew neck and V-neck options. The V-neck is useful for style purposes or because a child finds the crew neck tight. The crew neck is no different than what you find on any standard T-shirt. You will be able to find these in many sizes, including boys husky shirt sizes.
Socks decisions have more to consider than what color you want. Because they come in different sizes, starting with athletic quarter-length socks and work upward in length, it's important to consider what the sock's primary function is beyond covering feet. Be sure to involve your child, because if the socks are too long, he will roll them down. If they are too short, he may avoid wearing them altogether. Between size, color and function, there will be many options to choose from. However, this doesn't necessarily mean color isn't important, as well. While white socks are perfect for every day, consider black socks while he's playing athletics or black dress socks while he's wearing boys suits.
Big or small, all of the sizes and colors are available to keep your boy feeling great in his underwear and socks, a big relief for any parent. Trust Kmart to get your son outfitted with everything he needs at a price you'll love.
