MUM wears adult size 22, so she can’t find a uniform that suits her daughter.
Lorraine Emmins found nothing close to the size of 10-year-old Leaha at major retailers such as Asda, Lidl, Next, Marks and Spencer’s.
She said. “It was like a puncture wound in my heart. I felt like a failure.”
A 41-year-old cleaner from Heston, Cornwall, said he made Reha even more embarrassed on every failed shopping trip, adding that “it was a terrible and devastating experience for both of us.”
This is the first year we couldn’t find a uniform that fits the 11th 9-pound Reha.
She could have previously worn the largest child size of 14-15 years, but now a larger age is not enough.
One in three British children has left elementary school overweight, and the British Dietitian Association believes that the waistline has grown through pandemics and blockades.
That means families like Lorraine have to go to specialty stores and pay through their noses to put on their uniforms.
Sun searched online for hours and found a size 20 bottle of green gingham dress for Leaha. This is the last one available.
The dressmaker then expanded it by adding panels to the sides, bringing the total cost to over £ 50.
Classified as overweight, Reha got a size 24 gray women’s skirt, a XXXL polo shirt, and stretch jersey size 24 trousers on eBay.
The sun wanted to remain anonymous and spoke to many families struggling to find a plus size.
Lorraine, the four mothers, said:
“Riha loves school. I don’t want to bully her because she doesn’t have the right uniform or isn’t trolling.”
Reha added: “I’m proud of my uniform and I just want the right one. I know many other kids have the same problem.”
Lorraine took care of her three children at home and managed to manage £ 14,000 a year while eating on a tight budget due to the blockade.
She said Reha would take over Wayne, the warehouseman’s dad, who is the XXXL of the shirt. “She was always a big kid.
“I noticed she was weighting on the first blockade. She was at more computers for homeschooling and watching more TV. I had more treats for my kids. I know I was there.
“We took Reha to the doctor, but they said it was puppy fat.
“We are doing everything we can to help her manage her weight.
“But we have to face the fact that our kids are getting bigger and bigger. We need bigger uniforms. We don’t want to be charitable or sympathetic.”
Her other children, Jade (24 years old), Cleaner, Tianna (12 years old) and Leah (5 years old) are all average size.
My daughter, 10 years old, is 22 years old, and I feel like I failed because I couldn’t find a uniform that fits the 12th frame.
