Since I’m on a shopping ban, I feel like I’ve been doing more of these fitting room reviews to compensate.
Everyone’s been talking about LOFT lately and I’ve only recently started looking at their things. Since there was a promotion on pants, I asked the SA about the pant styles and cuts. She told me that there were primarily 2 cuts, the Julie and the Marisa. Online, there’s the Ann, but they haven’t been getting them in the store recently.
I took a pair of each style in 00P to compare the fit on my body.
Modern Fit. Sits lower on waist. Wide-leg silhouette.
I like the idea of the silhouette, but it’s totally unflattering. My hips are too wide for this style with unsightly bunching in the crotch area. There is also a fairly large waist gap by 2-3 inches.
Would I buy it? No. But it would work on someone with a thicker midsection and slimmer hips.
Curvy Fit. Sits slightly below the waist. Contoured to flatter the hip and thigh. Wide-leg silhouette.
The tee is in XXSP. It’s cute, but not really my style. It’s a bit too snug over my chest, so I would go with an XSP instead.
The pant fits perfectly with no waist gap and there’s more than enough room for my hips. The silhouette is more of a bootcut than a wide-leg look, but it’s not bad. From the back, I have a serious case of pancake butt…and that definitely killed it.
Would I buy it? Not really unless I take it to the tailors to fix the back part. Would fit someone with a more sizeable bottom half.
So I guess these LOFT pant styles are not for me.
How about you? What styles fit your body shape and how do you like LOFT pants?
