Hanes: Back to School Contest

It's time to dive into the kids' closets and start sorting out their fall school wardrobes. I've been attending oodles of trade shows to spot hip and trendy brands. While on the hunt for the newest and freshest, I almost skipped a brand I thought I knew well-- Hanes.

I used to think they were all about basic underwear--mostly for men. Then they started to catch my eye with those saucy bra and pantie ads with Jennifer Love Hewitt. When a brand rep contacted me about Momtrends I thought, "why not?"

My package of samples arrived and I was tickled. The Hanes Kids gear is bright, affordable and easy to mix and match. Anything but boring and basic. Plus, they've got a wonderful website--online shopping couldn't be easier. I clicked away to order girls' panties (love the wedgie-free Disney Princess collection$6 for a 3-pk), easy bottoms ($6 for leggings), and tagless camisoles ($5 for a toddler 3 pk).

For boys I got the big thumbs up from my testers for the Hanes boxer briefs ($10-2-pk; sizes 6-20), toddler crewneck tees (5 for $7--tye die party anyone!?!), and the always-in-need-of replenishment...sport socks (love these retro-look; 4 for $6).

Kids love the brand's famous tagless design and super-soft cotton (my toddler can concentrate on having fun and not on any itching or chafing underneath). The brand is branching out into playful print tops and fleece separates too--all in all excellent playwear. As for me, I'm loving the way the Tagless Allover Comfort Bra looks under sheer tees. Jennifer Love Hewitt is onto something--these really do feel great. Plus at $20 for 2 bras, I don't feel guilty about tossing these everyday items into the wash. I'll save the La Perla (hand wash only) for date night.

Exited about the brand? Me too! But wait there's more to get you revved up. Hanes is teaming up with Momtrends for out third giveaway of the month.

Four lucky Momtrends readers will win a $25 Hanes gift certificate.
