Girl Gotch Review & GIVEAWAY!


There’s no way around it… we ALL need underwear! ;) And with 3 girls in underwear now (yay! for successful potty training!) I feel like I am forever buying underwear (and socks – but that’s another story!)!

I was recently introduced to a Canadian company called Girl Gotch – and guess what?! They specialize in underwear for girls, “that’s too cute to be boys’” – right up my alley!! For review I was sent 2 boxes of gotch – size 2 and size 6… all my girls got to give it a try!

Little S who is a tiny size 2 was sent the boxer-style to try… this underwear is SOO cute – like little ‘boy cut boxers’! And in fact, when I opened the package we had a few people over that totally thought they were great!

First of all, I love the non-traditional colours. It’s always refreshing to see products for girls that are not pink or purple.

The boxers fit Little S great! As I mentioned, she’s a pretty tiny girl so although the boxers were a little roomy they offered great coverage in a super soft fabric.

Miss A and Miss H received the brief-style which was inspired by the original “tighty whitey”.

The big girls LOVED these! The 3 colours are vibrant and girly – which was a hit! They offered great coverage and what’s more, the band at the top does NOT have a seam on the side(s)! Often times I get complaints about other underwear digging into their sides with certain pants or while sleeping – not the case with these!

One other feature I wanted to note was that Girl Gotch is made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex so they’re sure to fit great and retain their shape!

Here’s a little on how Rebecca founded Girl Gotch, “One afternoon, we were at my sister’s house. My daughter and nephew were playing outside and were so wrapped up in their fun that my daughter had an accident. I didn’t have a change of clothes, so I borrowed a pair of my nephew’s gotch. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but as the day went on I noticed that she wasn’t complaining about her underwear hurting. I also watched her jump and play around and they stayed in place. The gotch covered her whole bm, which was something her panties never managed to do.

That got me to thinking…why don’t they make gotch for girls? And so, Girl Gotch was born and that brings me to today. I have been working with designers and manufacturers to get what I believe are the best girls’ underwear on the market!”

Girl Gotch is a little more expensive than I’d usually pay for underwear, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for!!

BUY IT!

Head on over to Girl Gotch today and cover your little girls’ fannies in a great product!

WIN IT!
