Got an Answer?
Iv always tried to keep my twins "indentity" separate but for special occasions when they were young I did dress then the same- I swore I never would and my mum did it once when they were babies and I was like yeah that is pretty cute. So I get it.
Now they often dress in matching or similar outfits accidentally and fight over who has to change 😂
But one thing I learned with them getting older now is wether they like it or not the are different to just regular brothers and sisters. Their bond is just different.
Everything about twins is different yes they are individuals but in a way they are a unit. That no one else can share. They're their own team.
Am I the only one who doesn't see it as cute?
I'm the one who sai I would never do it then realised when it's your own kids it's pretty cute
I use to hate it when I saw twins dressed the same and when I found out I was having twins - I swore I never would
Turns out your own kids make anything adorable
Because some twin mummies like to embrace the whole twin thing.
My twins are boy girl. I often buy the matching boy girl outfits for family events.
Sometimes without meaning i pick out the same colour cloths. My boys nrl bunnies shirt/ green with a bit of red. I dressed my girl in a green skirt with green birds on a yellow top. Didn't realise until we were about to leave the house. I would have changed my girls top if it was red and green lol
I dont have twins, my boys are 3 and 20mnths. My 4yr old loves when he has matching clothes to his little brother. My 5yr old daughter wants to get pjs that match the boys to lol
I've got a friend who dresses her kids who are 2years apart the same and I get really irritated by it, despite the fact it has nothing to do with me at all. Haha it's almost an irrational hatred
I swore I would never do it!!! When my twins were younger I would dress them the same for special occasions. Also- they are 4 now and honestly sometimes it's just a matter of finding clothes on sale (they grow so quickly and go through so many clothes) and it's just easier to buy 2 lots of the sale stuff. Another reason is because one of my twins is autistic he wanders and runs away. Having them dressed the same at the park/play centre means I can identify them quickly if I need to. Besides - I'm proud of my boys, and it's a good conversation starter with other mums (especially twin mums) 'oh! I have twins too'
Anyway. That's my 2 cents. :)
I have a friend who dresses her twin boys AND their older brother identically.... and then complains when people ask if they're triplets?? I think in her case at least she is doing it for attention.
I'm an identical twin. Mum used to dress us the same but different colours to tell us apart. Yes, we were colour coded! I think she did it because it's cute, simple as that. Despite the colour difference, I don't know who is who in photos of us as young kids. Mostly, neither does mum so there goes her colour coding system hahaha! Even when we were dressed differently, telling us apart was difficult. As we got older it became easier to tell us apart as we developed our own style, and we are like chalk and cheese now.
SeBastian is Blue or Black (the B)
Oden is in whatever lol.
Cos they are even cuter when they are literally doubled cuteness.
Plus they often like dressing the same. They often go in and choose their matching outfit together.
My sister had identical twin boys & I know a lot of the presents she got from relatives & friends were matching sets of clothes in different colours. I think it actually makes it a bit easier, because you are so out-of-your-mind-busy with multiples (and singles) it becomes like a uniform (if you know what I mean), it's one less thing to think of - you get one outfit out then you get the matching outfit out = easy! Besides all that it is CUTE!!
I find it so weird, & annoying!!
This is weirder tho, my friend has a 7yr old & 3yr old daughters. When the 3yr old was born & wearing bigger clothes she started dressing them the same & has been doing it pretty much most days (except school days obviously). Seriously weirds me out!
I find it weird. I have 2.5 yo twin girls who are NOT identical and have never dressed them the same. I have friends with Non-identical same gender twins and they dress them the same.
It's utterly beyond me. They are different people, and if one wants to wear what the other one is wearing - tough shit. It's not an option.
They often have the same style (ie jacket or jumper) but different colour or print. If I buy 2 the same, they never wear them at the same time.
I think dressing the twins identical is not going to help the individuality. They will just be seen as 'them' and outsiders wont treat them as individuals
because they are attention seeking idiots.
