Stunned mums discover secret M&S second hem for when kids grow out of school trousers

MUMS have been left impressed at discovering that some M&S trousers have a second hem for when kids grow too tall for their uniforms. 

A woman posted a photo of the secret label explaining the money-saving feature and admitted she was baffled. 

Taking the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, she wrote: “I was today years old when I found this out about M&S school trousers! 

“How did I not know this. There is actually a proper double hem!!”

The M&S website says that the grow proof hems add an extra 3cm onto the length of the trousers and help them to “last all year”. 

It says: “Just unpick and press for an extra 3cm. Added stretch and an adjustable waist for a perfect fit”.


After being up for just a few hours, it seems the discovery has also surprised a number of other parents. 

The post has racked up over 5,000 likes, and many mums praising the store for having clothing that can last a few years. 

One said: “I've always bought M&S trousers, how did i not know.”

Another added: “I have never seen this thank you.”

And one commented: “What a great idea.”
