I received these items at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.

I swooned the first time I came across Slugs & Snails tights. It’s not often I swoon, and especially not over clothing, but they are just too cute! As I looked into them a little further, I only fell more in love with the brand and the tights themselves. Slugs & Snails tights were born out of a functional (and fashionable) need for boy tights, and really, unisex tights. Girls are always wearing tights under dresses and tights with sweaters and tights as a base layer, and so they aren’t losing their socks or fussing about the cold. But boys on the other hand! Ha ha. Seriously though, tights are so functional and they are often only made for and marketed to girls. Slugs & Snails has changed that by creating fun, playful, super soft and durable tights for boys AND girls! You can read more about the Slugs & Snails story here.

Beyond the practical, snugly warm and one-piece design side of Slugs & Snails tights, is the fashionable fun side. I so often see adorable photos of mothers and daughters in matching mother & daughter outfits, or fathers and sons in matching father & son outfits, but what about the boy moms of the world? And the dads of daughters? Well, Slugs & Snails solved that problem too with their matching prints in child and adult sizes! There are whole families decked out in Slugs & Snails tights and loving life! I have a pair of their mushroom tights in my size and love the whimsical feeling I get wearing them, and that I can dress to match my son. We obviously need to set up a photoshoot to capture our combined adorableness but let’s wait for warmer weather and greener grass, shall we?

Slugs & Snails tights were made with the damp chilly weather of West Ireland and the wild nature of toddlers in mind. They are soft, thick, durable, stretchy and come in a ton of jolly prints. From rainbows and mushrooms to robots and popsicles, you are sure to find one you like. Not sure what to pair the tights with? Slugs & Snails also makes pixie hoodies, elbow patch tops and dungaree shorts! We have the pixie hoodie and it is the sweetest thing, everyone comments on it when we’re out and about with our little man all decked out in his Slugs & Snails clothes.

The Star of the Show: Slugs & Snails tights featuring…

  1. Wide high-rise waist band
  2. Roomy bum to fit over cloth diapers
  3. Non-skid sole (with the size clearly indicated)
  4. Funky gender-neutral prints
  5. Soft, stretchy, durable and breathable cotton blend fabric with lots of room to grow

What we love about our Slugs & Snails tights:

  • They are made with the “wild child” in mind! These tights are thick and durable and meant for the outdoors. They also have non-slip soles for littles just learning to walk and the kids who like to tear around the house. They are stretchy and non-restrictive so your little one can still crawl, walk, run, climb, and explore without trouble.
  • They are super functional! No more lost socks! No more exposed ankles while in the carrier! You can pair them with anything! They can be worn under clothing as a base layer or on their own! And you can pack less while travelling because they are socks and pants all rolled into one. And most of the above is true for my tights as well.
  • They are roomy! The breathable cotton that they are made from is nice and stretchy. There is plenty of room for cloth diapers and chubby thighs, and there is lots of room to grow!
  • They come in fun unisex prints! No more “girls tights” or “boys tights”. These tights can be worn by any and all of your children, regardless of gender, and all of them will LOVE the funky prints. Moms & Dads will love them too!
  • They come in adult sizes! Don’t pass up the chance to grab yourself a matching pair! Photoshoot, anyone?
  • The sizing is accurate! I don’t trust sizes when it comes to children’s clothing, mostly because Huckleberry is an enormous kid (98th percentile since birth!) and never fits in his “age size”. So despite the fact that I measured him and checked their sizes/measurements, I still opted for a size larger than I needed. They were too big! But hey, that’s a good thing. He was still able to wear them while they were a little long, and he’s going to get a lot of wear out of them. My tights also fit perfectly! All that to say, you can trust Slugs & Snails sizing.

What we would change if we could:

  • The adult-sized tights aren’t as good. On the adult-sized tights, the print does not continue all the way up over the bum the way it does on the kid-sized tights. This limits what I am willing to wear over my tights as not only to I need a top long enough to cover my bum, but it almost needs to come down to my knees or there’s an awkward section of plain yellow. This is obviously not a total deal breaker for me, but I would wear them more often if the print continued. Also, the adult-sized tights are not nearly as thick and warm and the kid-sized tights, which is a little disappointing, as I would love to use them more as a base layer for hiking in colder weather.

    We would definitely wear these anywhere! We walk the dog every morning and stop by the little park that’s on our route and they would be great for that!

    I really loved this review. It perfectly describes why we’ve been Sluggers (yes you get to call yourself that!) for a number of years. We have two boys and socks have never really been a thing. They’re so comfortable for them, and can act as an under layer as well as on their own. I’ve got two pairs of adult one, and my wife a pair too. There really is nothing better than a lazy day in, romping around on the living room floor or snuggled up on the settee all in our Slugs. For me, covering the top half of the tights isn’t an issue – if I’m out I can just pop on some jeans shorts and a hoodie, but I admin it would be awesome to see the print all the way up too.

    Probably the biggest form of flattery we can give towards Slugs and Snails tights is that both of our boys, a 2 year old and a 4 year old, who’ve practically worn them their entire lives) always ask to wear them. It’s so nice to see our eldest asking to wear them under his school trousers for chilly days walking to nursery.

    We’ve started giving them out as presents to new parents in our family and group of friends. Sometimes we still get looks or curious questions when they’re for boys, but that lasts only until they see their children in them and all the benefits they bring.

    Thanks for the enjoyable post, it’s great to see lots of like-minded parents experiencing the benefits we get from the tights 🙂

    We would wear these tights shopping on the weekends, to the park, over to the grandparents’ houses, and everywhere in between! I love them, they are so cute! Especially the little toadstools!! 🙂
