The mommy and me style is usually introduced to most families through the mom who does so because the appearance is deemed to be incredibly cute. Many are themselves exposed to the style for the first time through their friends and relatives before wishing to try it out with their own daughters.

However, buying clothing as a gift poses its own problems and in this case it is the point that the majority, as in around 75% of all clothing that is purchased for a woman gets returned.
