My 1st Years | Review

Monday, 18 August 2014



If you know me you'll know I'm obsessed with buying things for Indiana. She probably has a completed wardrobe to last until she's a year and half yet I can't help buy more haha. So when My 1st Years contacted me and said they'd love for me to review an item for them of course I had to pick an item of clothing!

If you haven't heard of My 1st Years they are an online site specialising in personalised and unique gifts for babies. Taken from their website
'My 1st Years offers the opportunity to mark this truly precious occasion with a gift that is personalised with a name or special dedication. The site is designed into categories all giving the option of customisation, ensuring the present you choose shows it’s been sourced with love'.
It was SO hard trying to pick just one thing. Nearly everything on their website I wanted (I say nearly as the stuff I didn't want was only because it was for boys haha). The website is very easy to navigate through with everything split into categories, and also with the option to shortlist the bits you want such as price. I eventually chose this personalised heart print romper which will be ideal for the summer weather we're having at the moment. It was originally £18 but is on sale at the moment for £9; an absolute bargain!



The first thing I thought of when it arrived was simply how beautiful it was presented. Every order is sent in one of these gorgeous presentation boxes. The colour is one of my favourite colours and I think the bow is such a cute touch!

The personalised tissue paper is the icing on the cake and I would be so happy and impressed if I had received this as a gift! My box did arrive a bit bashed but I think that's more the fault of the postmen and not the company itself.

I was then even happier when I saw the romper itself. It is gorgeous and the picture on the website simply doesn't do it justice. It's made with 100% cotton so is lovely and soft to touch. The embroidery is of great quality and I think having it personalised really completes it.



The romper is covered in small pink hearts and then there is a matching pink corsage by the straps too. It has spaghetti straps tied with bows which are super cute, and then it is fastened at the bottom with poppers - much easier for changing nappies!

The legs are also elasticated so they are tight around the ankles which shows off the frill detail. Then there are the standard labels (Indie has an obsession with playing with these bless her haha). It can be personalised with up to 12 letters so most names would fit along the front - this can also be added in a choice of two colours, we have the lighter pink.


Indiana looks totally adorable in it and I'm so glad I made the choice of this romper. It's slightly baggy around the top at the moment as I went for the bigger size so it would last longer. Although it is tight around the legs where the popper are so the sizing may be slightly smaller than most shops. The second I put it on she was feeling it and was happily crawling along and climbing around in it, which shows it must be comfortable and easy to move in.

Disclosure - I was sent this item for the purpose of this review, all opinions are honest and my own
