You spoke, we listened! We asked the always stylish Lisa Schoenberger (@MustangSallyTwo) for some feedback on our latest denim collection and here’s what she had to say!
“Jeans. I think it is safe to say that all women regardless of our size and shape have a love hate relationship with them. When you find the perfect pair they will make you feel like a million bucks but have you ever felt like you just haven’t quite found them yet?
I have to say Penningtons got it right for me when they introduced their different fits – straight, slightly curvy, curvy and savvy. I finally felt like I was trying on jeans that were designed to fit my body. I am a curvy fit girl through and through with the focus being on more room in the hips and thighs but a smaller waist.
But once I found my fit I was disappointed in the lack of options that were available in terms of leg style, wash, embellishment etc. However, I was fortunate enough to have my voice heard and boy did they listen! When this fall’s denim collection was released I immediately checked it out and was so excited to see two more leg styles in the curvy fit. Of course that meant I had to put them to the test.
These curvy skinnies are the answer to my prayers. I couldn’t believe it when I put them on! I didn’t struggle getting them over my knee, the ankle is tapered like it should be and there was ample room in the rise. These are perfect for date night or going out with the girls so I paired them with this cute one-shoulder ruffle top.
Now let’s talk about these curvy boyfriends. I love the look of a boyfriend style for more casual outfits. These have the right amount of width in the leg for that relaxed fit but still hug my waist. I love the distressed finish with the cuffed hem that has a cute plaid detail in the seam. I paired them with a simple tank in one of fall’s hottest colours and a boho chic kimono.
If you are still searching for your perfect fit or you want to add some variety to your collection, then I definitely recommend you check out Penningtons. They also offer short and tall lengths and sizes from 14 to 32. But what is probably my favourite thing is that their sizing is consistent, I now have 4 different leg styles in varying washes and finishes in my closet and they are all a size 28 – that is music to my ears!”
