I’ve been on a jeans craze lately, mainly because my 2 go to pair are from 2010 (read: olddddd), but also thanks to Loft‘s heavy promotion on jeans this month. I was a little skeptical at first because their jeans did not fit me well at all 3 years ago when I worked there, but they claim that they’ve changed the sizing and fit of their jeans and the promo pictures for them just look so nice, so I got suckered into their marketing ploy and grabbed 2 pairs, the Boyfriend and the Relaxed Skinny in petite.
When they arrived they didn’t fit the way I was expecting them to, didn’t taper in enough or too snug/loose at the wrong places… I was disappointed but at the same time I was also kind of expecting it. A few days later I went to the store to return them, I saw the Relaxed Skinny Jeans in my size but regular length, I decided to give it one last try before I finally give up on Loft jeans. Well what do you know, this pair fits like a glove! A relaxed, boyfriend jeans look that tapers in on the bottom, just what I was looking for.
I am so glad I gave them a second try because they have so many different wash and cuts to choose from all within reasonable price range (and they always have good deals/promo). The one down side with them is that most of the items I like and a lot of petite items are online exclusive so you can’t try them on before you order… So you have to deal wit the ordering online, wait for them to arrive, try them on and see if they fit, and return the ones that didn’t work out. Not the most efficient way to shop, but if they fit as nicely as the Relaxed Skinny Jeans, I think I can handle it.
