Active Kids – wear or where?

Posted in Kids, and Random

“Congratulations, your baby is in the top 90 percentile of height” , was the first thing I remember a doctor telling me a good nine years ago . I didn’t really know back then what that could mean for my Princess. All I could think of was “woo- hoo, we either have a super model or a basketball player”… WINNING!

Along with the blessing of the height, however, I have had one major challenge for my Princess; the difficulty in finding ‘age appropriate’ clothing. I have a stunning 9 year old with long legs that is quickly outgrowing most kids clothing brands. I have a constant difficulty in finding clothing for someone who isn’t…well, a woman. Where can I go, where do I look?


The Honoré range comes in a wide range of sizes to suit all ages and needs. So if you are conscious about providing your children with age appropriate clothing then Honore is a great brand for you to consider.

One of the key features of this brand is that it is locally made right here in Australia. Being Australian made, it gives you a sense of comfort knowing that it has been designed and manufactured to a high standard.

Although the Honore range is marginally more expensive than what you would find in mainstream retail, the key reason anyone should consider Honoré is that its not polyester! Polyester doesn’t breathe , its itchy and it stinks. Honoré Activewear have made a conscious decision to ensure that any fabric against a child’s sensitive skin will be made from natural, breathable fabrics. The designers of the activewear ensure the clothing’s innermost layer is made from either cotton or hemp. I was sold!

I placed my first order and it was gooooooooddddd.


I ordered the :
Both in the Seagrass/white Peephole Mesh colour combo

Priced at $42.00 for the top and $44.95 for the bottom.
This is a trendy racerback girls top. Available in 4 different colour combinations, which can be matched-up with skirts and/or leggings. The stylish girls drop waisted, slightly frilled skirt with built-in shorts, is stunning. It is also available in 2 different colour combinations with matching tops.

I loved the racerback top and skirt, oh and so did my Princess. The material is amazing and the colour is just gorgeous.The blend of cotton and lycra are a perfect match. Being a mesh top meant that of course it was highly breathable. The best part was I could get a size 12. My Princess could have stayed wearing this skirt forever. It looked so comfortable and I loved the hidden shorts underneath the skirt, which meant she could play to her heart’s delight whilst protecting her dignity.


The second outfit I ordered was the:





This is priced at $55.00 for the Pants and is $49.95 for the jacket.

This is a very stylish girls tracksuit jacket with pockets. Both the Jacket and the pants and come in 3 different colour combinations. For practicality, the tracksuit pants come with a large zip at the feet allowing for easy removal over sports shoes.

Again, the smile on her beautiful face as soon as she put this outfit on was priceless. “Mummy this is so comfy, I love it”. What a good ‘Mama’ moment this was for me. Yes #bestmummyeva!

There is a 30 day refund period (excl. shipping costs) as well as a full refund/exchange offered should there be fault in the items delivered.
All Honoré Activewear is machine washable and made from natural fibres so the fabric breathes and remains gentle on even the most sensitive skin. Shipping cost, I hear you say? There is free shipping in Australia on any orders exceeding $100.00. All other orders within Australia have a flat rate shipping cost of $10.00. and the best news is … wait for it…. She ships internationally too, currently to the USA, Canada and New Zealand.

  3. My daughter is not quite in the top percentile for height, but this looks like a great range for any active kid.

    Beautiful active clothes for kids. I can see my granddaughter wearing something like that. She is about the same age as your princess.
    Good post.
