Don't know if anyone else has noticed but the FAQs on the Girlguidingshop website have been updated to include: What will the new uniform be like? Our uniform ranges are developed in consultation with girls and volunteers and are designed to meet the needs of active girls and young women. Guides were consulted throughout the Guide uniform design process. Overwhelmingly the girls said they wanted a range of clothing to choose from that was a mix of comfortable, easy to move about in and not too ‘boyish’. Not an easy task! The designers have created a range of durable clothes with design details that reflect the Guides’ feedback without compromising on comfort or flexibility of wear. What about quality? As with all Girlguiding clothing other products and packaging, the new Guide uniform has been produced to fully comply with all UK and EU regulations, directives, decisions and standards for quality and safety. Girlguiding follows strict procedures throughout the development of new clothing items. As such, all fabrics for the new Guide uniform were selected to ensure they wash and wear well and give members good value for money. Full care instructions are included on all Girlguiding garment labels. Will the new uniform have a ‘warm’ option? Options cover both cool and warm weather as this was highlighted during the consultation. Why is the new Guide clothing range being referred to as uniform? We are keen to help girls and adults understand more easily what they should be wearing for different guiding occasions. To help with this, all section wear will now be referred to as uniform (eg Rainbow wear to Rainbow uniform, Brownie wear to Brownie uniform, adult wear to adult uniform etc). We hope for one that this will help to distinguish official Girlguiding uniform from casual guiding wear, such as event clothing (BIG GIG hoodies, Big Brownie Birthday T-shirts etc) and personalised guiding clothing. Usage guidelines for members and adults for the entire Girlguiding uniform range are currently being developed by Girlguiding's Chief Commissioners. Look out for more information on uniform guidance in our member communications.
