Myself Belts

Does your little one have trouble keeping trousers up? All three of my kids do. Most of the pants and skirts I purchase nowadays have the adjustable elastic waistband, but even that contraption has it's limits at times. I came across these belts at a trade show here in NYC and thought they were absolutely genius.
Myself Belts creates belts that even your littlest one can manage. The belt attaches to your child's pants with a hidden snap. Then, for the rest of the day, the belt can be fastened and unfastened by your child (with ease!) because the closure is made of velcro.
This is perfect for any child who is potty training, but can also be great for older children. My 5-year-old loves her belt, because traditional belts always take a little more dexterity than she has. I love it, because she no longer runs to me after each bathroom break looking for some belt help. My favorite belt styles are the Airplane, Polka Dot, and Leather.

Myself Belts even sells belts for teens or adults who may deal with disabilities that would limit their ability to fasten a belt. These belts have the appearance of a regular belt, but also have a velcro closure.

If you order a Myself Belt, make sure to follow the weight recommendation as you select sizing. My 5-year-old daughter wears a size small, which is labeled 3 yrs.
You can purchase a Myself Belt on their official website, or you can find a retailer near you. Some Nordstrom and Stride Rite locations carry the Myself Belt. I was surprised by the number of stores here in NYC that carry them, so chances are you can find a shop nearby.

Who wants to have their little one try out a Myself Belt? Make a comment on this post by midnight February 24th, 2009 to enter. A winner will be randomly selected and announced on the morning of the 25th. Good luck!!

What cute belts! We'd love to try them out! My daughter has snake hips, and nothing stays up around them, especially skirts. These would be great for her!

These are adorable.

grommom said...

My son could use all the help he can get keeping his pants from falling down! He would love the dinosaur belt.

Julianna said...

My little girl is long-n-lean (unlike me) and I cannot find pants that fit! Even the ones with "adjustable" sizes are too big in the waist. This belt seems like the perfect solution. And my daughter is all about "I do it!" these days...

These are absolutely PERFECT for preschoolers who's pants don't fit but need to start to use the bathroom by themselves! I've already gone through 2 kids like this and am on my way to a third.
