Have you guys read Lisette’s post for the Lotus Premium Brand? If so then you remember the fun and quirky video that promised meticulously fitting jeans for pretty much any woman (if not – you need to watch it 🙂 ). Well, I can’t speak for everybody but based on my personal experience these jeans are quite incredible!
For my review I got the Love Slim Fit jeans in True Blue, a nice rinse wash that is flattering and versatile like no other. The back pocket spicy orange stitching, embroidered Lotus logo and gold hardware work really well with the contrast background of dark denim to add a touch of chic and glamour. The back brass zipper is definitely a very unique detail and looks edgy and stylish.
The Love is no doubt one of the most unique fits I’ve ever seen. The top of the jean, which features a 10.5” high rise with a clean “fly-less” front, works almost like the control top of your favorite hosieries – it sucks you in to create a smooth and flat stomach. The wide contoured waistband that flows into a sweetheart yoke on the back cinches you in to give you a tiny waist. This silhouette is slim from the top to the calf and starts opening up closer to the 13” leg opening. The 30” inseam is quite typical and will suit women up to 5’8” in height (I am 5’7” and the hem hits exactly where it should). Overall it is a very flattering jean that will work for many different body types.
Particularly in high-waisted styles the soft, stretchy denim is key (at least for me) – it gives that comfort and ease in wear that can be compromised by more rigid fabrics. The denim used for Love is exactly how I like it and absolutely wonderful! The blend of 80% cotton, 19% polyester and 1% spandex has a nice, silky texture and plenty of elasticity. It also seems to have great recovery and hold its shape very well throughout the day.
On LotusPremiumDenim.com I saw the recommendation to order one size up as this particular style tends to run a bit small. I personally haven’t had any problems with my usual size as it fits great. However I did notice that the back zipper is rather short which can cause difficulties when you are putting on the jeans. Therefore if you are somewhat curvy sizing up may be a good idea.
Well done, Lotus Premium – you guys created a truly great pair of denim! I love my Love jeans (excuse me for being repetitive 🙂 ) and will definitely keep my eye on this cool, young brand that clearly has a lot to offer.
