So instead of my usual morning routine I fired up my computer and promptly bought my coupon. Thank goodness I did because only a few hours later apparently the Groupon site crashed! It was totally worth me being late to work this morning :P
I had really, really had my eye on these legging jeans after seeing them on Chloe here.
Unfortunately Gap does not offer petite sizes in Canada, but I thought I would go in and check out the jeans anyway.
Let me just say first off that that Gap denim is soooo super comfortable. So soft and stretchy I loved them! But unfortunately fit was another story. (Please excuse the pics - change rooms have such horrible lighting)
Legging Jeans in size 26/2:
I was pretty happy with the fit besides the length as you can kind of see here:
Not really sure how much "bunchiness" is acceptable - but when I turned around I saw this nighmare:
See the bumpiness and sagging?
Not flattering at all!
So I tried a size down 25/0:
But the same thing occurred at the back:
(it's REALLY hard to take a picture of your butt....I was twisting in all sorts of strange ways!)
The back side is saggy and I look flat. And there is too much material between the waistband and the top of the butt area.
I decided to try on a different style - always skinny jeans in size 0
But the extra material was still there.
So on to a 00:
The butt fit a bit better, but I think they were a bit too tight at the waist and I still didn't think the butt was flattering.
Overall I was disappointed :( I really wanted to score a pair of skinny jeans as all I have are boot cut and trouser cut. I may go back and try some other styles on or try out the kids section.
I assume the rise on the petites version of these jeans would fit better. Have any of my American friends had any luck?
