A Guide to Kids Suspenders

Kids look cool in suspenders. They add grownup flair to little kid fashions. Older kids love the unique looks they can achieve with suspenders plus or minus a dapper bow tie. Grownups love that our children’s suspenders are washable. At SuspenderStore, we’ve been selling kids’ suspenders since 1999. All kid suspenders are unisex styles. Singer-songwriters Usher and Gwen Stefani have dressed their stylish tykes in suspenders. Stefani’s young son has been photographed wearing trendy jeans, sneakers and suspenders over a white tank top. Usher’s boys have been photographed wearing colorful suspenders and matching bowties with button-down little boy cotton shirts and khakis. Choosing the Right Size At SuspenderStore, our children’s suspenders are available in dozens of solid colors, colorful patterns and styles. We recommend the 25-inch size for infants and toddlers 9 months to 24 months. For toddlers up to 5 years old, choose the 30-inch size. For older or taller kids - 5 years old to 5 feet tall - 36-inch is the right length.  Pick suspenders in a 42-inch size for kids over 5 feet tall. When buying for children, measure the distance from the back waistline of his or her pants, moving the tape measure diagonally over the child’s shoulder to the front waistline. Because our children’s suspenders are adjustable, choose the next larger size for the correct length. Older kids and teens often can wear adult-size suspenders. What we’ve noticed is that pre-teens and teens tend to prefer skinny suspender styles. Our youth suspenders include skinnier 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch styles, as well as standard 1-inch widths for children and teens. Style, Function, Fun Our kids’ suspenders are available in Y-back and X-back styles. Because they are more widely spaced, the X-back-style suspenders offer more support and stability. Choose suspenders with sturdy metal clips that attach to the waistline of the pants or skirt, or choose our kid-sized button suspenders that loop over pants buttons. Our American-made button suspenders have handsome leather patches and attachments. If your child’s pants or skirt doesn’t have buttons, order a set of our sew-on or no-sew buttons. Suspenders with our matching pre-tied bow ties will add fun flair to school clothes or dress up formal occasion outfits. Our bow ties for children are cut smaller at 1.5 inches wide at each end and fit neck sizes 7 to 15 inches. We have matching adult solid color bowties and suspenders, too, for family photo sessions. Choose from up to 20 colors, including white. Shop our patterned and novelty suspenders for kids. Boys and girls like to wear suspenders with turtlenecks and plain T-shirts. Colorful or solid-color suspenders will dress up girls’ skirts and blouses, and boys’ button-downs and jeans or slacks. Or, dress up a T and cargo shorts. We have glitter suspenders for kids that are favorites for school plays, dance recitals and holiday parties. Our novelty suspenders for kids include styles with cartoon, superhero, sports and pet motifs.
