Re: Looking for cheap spandex "biker" shorts for DD to wear under skirts

I just received 'cartwheel shorts' from Childrens PLace. They are like bike shorts but have cute tiny bows on the leg.

Re: Looking for cheap spandex "biker" shorts for DD to wear under skirts

When I buy shorts for this purpose I literally want to spend the change rattling in my pocket for them. THRIFT STORE!! Since the odds of finding "biker" shorts are slim I just size down. If I bought DD her size then you would be able to see the shorts under some of her more fitted dresses. She wears a 3t short right now so I find some cotton baby ones in 18 or 24 months. They fit her snuggly so you don't see them bulging out around the waist. I literally pay pennys for them and have a drawer full. Good luck!

Re: Looking for cheap spandex "biker" shorts for DD to wear under skirts

I have a hard time finding bike shorts for under dresses that fit DD well so I buy Carter's long leggings, cut & hem them into shorts. They hold up really well through lots of wear and I can get them at Kohl's for $4/pair. I buy the 2 pair packs when they are on sale & with a % off coupon.

I have also seen these at Academy (sporting good store) - I think they start at size XS though (like a size 4)

Also - usually our once upon a child has stuff like that rather cheap

If anyone has a ShopKo in their area, I did see that they have mini leggings so I'm going to check out our local store and see if I can find them there. I think they just started carrying them. They fall just above the knees and made by Green Soda brand.

I'm only seeing the leggings so far and not any shorts. Not to mention Garanimals do not go past 5t. After that, it's the Faded Glory brand and so far, I haven't seen any short leggings.

Gymboree also sells them...they are "Regular" priced about $10, but are usually on sale or get marked down...i usually pay about $4 a pair for them, and DD has some she's been wearing for 2+ years

I meant to say that they only go to 5T. I have a good number of the shorts that I got last year in various colors. I am in SC so they are probably available sooner.
