Review: Trutex School Uniform

School uniform sometimes feels like the bane of my life. It is expensive to buy and rarely lasts the whole year – either getting worn out / covered in paint or lost. I try to balance buying decent quality uniform without spending too much money. However having two girls I like the uniform to be high enough quality to last being passed down.

We were recently sent some Trutex school uniform to review for Bean and I must say that I was really impressed with it. I was sent a pack of Katie Collar Blouses and a Junior Pleated Skirt. Unfortunately the red cardigan to complete the uniform was out of stock which was a shame as judging by the quality of the other two products I think I would have really liked it.

The Katie Collar Blouses are supposed to be non-iron, but as with all ‘non-iron’ things I found that they did need a little press to look really smart. They certainly didn’t wrinkle in the wash as much as other shirts do though. My favourite bit about these shirts is the collar – it is a lovely shape and is nice and stiff so looks really smart.

The skirt was also a big hit. The material felt a lovely thick quality with good strong pleats that didn’t wash out. I also loved the adjustable waist ¬†which is a god-send for a skinny minnie child like mine!

Size wise these came up a little big on Bean (I ordered 7-8) and they are too big for now but will hopefully fit next year so if your child is on the smaller side I’d suggest sizing down. Overall though I was very happy with the quality of this uniform and have high hopes of it making it through the year!

Disclosure Рwe were sent two shirts and one skirt to test for the purposes of this review. All opinions are honest and our own.
