This is an odd one, and I never expected to say this but...

I bought childrens clothes yesterday - for myself!

I was buying a replica rugby shirt, and they had adults and childs sizes. I tried on a small adult and an extra large childs shirt, and not only did the junior one fit better, it was also much cheaper!

They must breed those kids big these days!

Hi Helen!

Good for YOU! My future daughter-in-law is a tall (5'10") and slender (130 lbs.) distance runner. She says she often checks out the children's section for cute shirts! She likes that they are cut a bit more modestly yet still have classy cuts, designs, and colors.

See? Now you have an additional DEPARTMENT to check out now!!

Cheryl
