Personalised Leggings from Bags of Love

So you all know about how much Olivia loves clothes don’t you? Of course you do she has her own Kids Style Series. Then there is also our love for all things personalised. Be it phone cases, calendars or cake. If we can personalise it we can. But up until now we have never personalised our clothes. That is until now.

Then we came across Bags of Love who will literally design your item any way you want! She could make her very own unique design. Every single tiny detail would be picked by Olivia right down to the colour of the stitching! But would she go for it and would she be able to design something she would actually wear? I waited with baited breath.

How easy is it to make personalised leggings from Bags of Love?

The beauty of this is that you literally can put almost any design on your leggings. Upload a picture or choose from one of their many designs the whole process is yours to decide. The hard part is settling on the design! Olivia has always wanted to have leggings with her name on so this was a must.

She chose the material, the stitch thread colour, size, length and lastly the design. Opting for the 210g slinky matt lycra in a full leg length with white stitching. All she needed now was her design. Being better at this stuff than I am I kind of just left her to it. Olivia found it really easy to use however we had sizing and placement issues with getting her name in a column down the one leg.

After getting some advice from the friendly customer service team we were advised to pop in all the letters individually as opposed to trying to place one word in a column. The only issue with this is making sure you get them in place so it looks as good as possible. It did frustrate Olivia a little bit as she struggled to place them. Again customer service stepped up to the mark to position them correctly for us.

Now the design. We kind of disagreed over this. Both of us had different ideas and eventually a compromise was reached and I am pleased to show you Olivia’s brand new Personalised Leggings from Bags of Love.

Olivia’s Verdict.

So what did Olivia think of her design when she received them?

She loved them! In her words they are so comfy, they feel like her gymnastics leggings.

They are perfect and I love them. They are exactly what I wanted and my name looks so good down the side too!

When they arrived, I wasn’t sure I liked them but they honestly look so much better on than off. Now I have seen her in them I have to agree with Olivia as they do look good on her and she is more than thrilled with them.

bags-of-love-olivia-legpsst… please excuse the floor and skirting boards we are mid decorating and this was the only time I could capture Olivia as a willing model and no scowl!

Tips.

This is the first time we have ever done anything like this so it’s safe to say we were a little cautious and made a few mistakes. I say we as in myself and Olivia. So I’m going to give you some tips for making sure you get your order right first time as we didn’t. With Olivia being able to get into kids and ladies sizes we automatically went for the adult size she wears from Primark. They were too small but Bags of Love kindly agreed to send us a different size out.

  1. Please check your measurements and order using their guide on the site to get the right size.
  2. Look over all of their options thoroughly.
  3. Play around with all the options until you are happy, don’t rush.
  4. Ask customer support for help and/or tips to assist in getting your design right.
  5. Create a killer piece of personalised clothing!

Would I use Bags of Love again? Yes I would. For a present or a special gift I would yes. Olivia’s legging cost £34.99. Actually whilst we are talking about it we have set up our shop too! You will soon be able to buy designs by One Frazzled Mum how cool is that. Olivia is so excited that other people can now buy her design, style by Olivia, coming soon to a store by you…… well online anyway.

While you are here Bags of Love also have a great competition on their website to win over £600 of prizes. All you need to do is to design and upload your own Christmas Jumper. Then get people to vote for your design. This competition ends November 27th 2016 so be quick!

*Disclaimer: We have worked with Bags of Love to create our own design leggings and received them in payment for this post. All thoughts are our own*

    What a really cool idea, and inspiring for the children who have designed their own clothes too. You might have a designer of the future right there! #KCACOLS

    These look great, what a very clever idea. I am not sure I am artistic enough to create anything quite as good as Olivia has though! #KCACOLS

    What a great idea, I can see my little girl loving this in a year or two, she already gets super excited by new clothes and she’s only just turned two.

    OMG these are super cool! I remember hating leggings when I was a child my mum used to make me wear them under my trousers in winter. Now leggings are my life! #KCACOLS

    I’m always looking for something different for my 11 year old to wear and these look perfect. I love the way that you can make the design yourself! I think these would appeal a lot to tween girls – really useful post. Thanks xx #KCACOLS

    A great idea for a very special gift but a bit too expensive for my tastes. #KCACOLS

    I am very jealous of Olivia’s sense of style at such a young age! When I was 10, all I wanted to wear were cheap jelly shoes and pinroll my jeans. She’s cute as a button and looks great in those leggings! #KCACOLS

    I do love the design, Olivia has good taste! But I do think £35 is a bit pricey, I do get it’s personalised so maybe as a special occasion haha! #KCAKOLS

    This is really fun. I love that with today’s technology it’s getting easier for everyday people to have a chance to design things how they like and affordably own such a unique item. Olivia’s design is awesome! #kcacols

    Oh fun! Kids just love anything with their name on it and my daughter refuses to wear anything without an elasticated waist so pretty much lives in leggings! #KCACOLS

    We’ve bought quite a lot of personalised clothing and the kids love it! We tend to go for jumpers and a size too big to make sure they get the use out of it and with jumpers, too big is fine! #KCACOLS

    It’s funny, leggings being back in fashion again like they were when I was Olivia’s age – I used to have loads! They are so easy to wear, so I for one LOVE leggings, and Olivia’s are very cute. 🙂
