It’s no secret I love sweatshirts and hoodies. As soon as the leaves begin to turn it’s officially hoodie weather, and my stash comes out of hiding. In the winter I practically live in them. Because Ben spends most of the cold winter days working outdoors, he’s a big hoodie fan, too. Ellie hates bulky jackets with a passion, so she has grown fond of layering a sweatshirt or lightweight hoodie over her shirt when she wants to go outside to play on cooler days.
When my family was given the opportunity to try out the Hanes ComfortBlend line I was absolutely ecstatic. Thank you for feeding my hoodie addiction! The ComfortBlend line is great for our family not just because we all love to wear sweatshirts and hoodies. They are soft, comfortable, and most of all affordable on our tight budget! That’s a big plus when you have constantly growing kids who need new clothes in the middle of a season.
I’m impressed with how soft the inside of each piece is even after washing them. I’ve dealt with my fair share of fleece hoodies and sweatshirts that felt soft at first but turned scratchy after washing. These definitely hold up! I also love that all the items in the ComfortBlend line are tagless, so I don’t have to worry about cutting tags out. It can be a real pain when you plan to save something as a hand me down for your next child but you cut the tag out and forget what size it is! I also love that the women’s hoodie is cut in a figure flattering shape, so it’s not bulky at all, but the downside is it doesn’t have a drawstring for the hood.
Chilly Thanksgiving Day was the perfect opportunity to sport our Hanes fleece as a family.
It was a cool 37 degrees when we ventured out for our first family Thanksgiving celebration, so I dressed the girls in clothes that wouldn’t be too hot later in the day and added their Comfortblend Zip Up Hoodie Sweatshirts as the final touch to keep them warm without feeling bulky.
Ben and the girls headed outside to play while I got dressed, so I took advantage of the opportunity to grab a photo while Ben and Aubrey watched Ellie ride her 4wheeler around the yard.
Then we headed out for our first outing of the day, Thanksgiving dinner at my Grandparents’ house. It was so cold I was thankful to have both my fleece sweatshirt and zip up hoodie on today!
When it was time to head to family dinner #2 with the in-laws the temperature had actually dropped instead of risen, but none of us were complaining inside our cozy hoodies.
Overall we are all very pleased with our Hanes Comfortblend gear, and we will definitely be purchasing more items in the future. Check out the entire line of Hanes products if you’re not already a fan because there is something to fit everyone in the family!
