There are many kid’s clothing companies out there, with tons of adorable dresses making it hard for a busy mom like me to choose! When I came across Twirly Girl, their various lines of skirts and dresses were a definite stand-out. The styles and fabric combinations are beautiful and unique. From their Superfun Clothing line, we were fortunate to test out one of their Wings of Wonder dresses, also known as a WOW dress. We reviewed the Sherbet Pop style, one of their new colors released on August 1st.
We were heading out for a family vacation just after the WOW dress arrived. I thought it would be a perfect last-minute addition to the luggage. How fun to not only have a beautiful dress, but be able to take flight, too, at least in your child’s imagination. When the wings are not in use, the beautiful cape flows down her back as a fun accent. I loved the way the cape danced in the gentle breezes, too. The dress also comes with the headband shown in the picture (it’s matches the bottom ruffle of the dress). The headband is long enough that it can also be tied around the dress to create an empire-style dress or tied around the waist.
A huge plus for this dress, too, is that it is machine washable. It went through my usual test of three washes to test the durability. I kept this one in a mesh bag due to the cape and washed it on Delicate cycle and it has held up really well so far! Despite all the flapping Kieran does and the three washes it’s undergone, there is not a single fray in the edging or snag in the cape. There was even an impromptu “roll-around-on-the-grass” session that the dress held up to!
I would say Kieran definitely loves this dress. Her face lights up when I ask her if she wants to wear it. There’s an air of whimsy when she wears it, as she loves showing her wings off to her friends and family. She’s also into grabbing the cape and wrapping it around her body. This has definitely been the most fun dress she has ever worn.
The cost of the dress is $59.00. It’s definitely worth the price as it’s pretty enough to be used as a formal dress to say, a wedding, but durable enough to be used for everyday play. The sizes run from 2T-4T and 4-8. For Twirly Girl sizing, Kieran is a 4T. Based on the fitting description on the website, I was torn between getting a 3T as I thought the 4T would be way too big, but it ended up being a perfect fit (at review time, Kieran was 40” tall and 37 pounds). If you are on the fence, I recommend going up a size.
Twirly Girl is a Los Angeles-based clothing company. They’re a socially conscious company as well, and a portion of their sales go to such organizations as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, The Center for Nonviolent Education and Parenting, The Strongheart Fellowship Company, and This American Life.
That’s IT Mommy friends, Heather & Kieran
