LET'S GET TO IT!
If you saw my Instagram story yesterday, then you saw my adventures in the dressing room trying on different jeans...
Also, go follow me if you don't already. I clearly have zero shame self promoting 😜
P.s. the shirt I'm wearing means "I love me" and you can get one from my dear friend Tori's shop here.
The point of doing that was to encourage women wear their 'true size' [the size that fits your body] instead of the size they have come to identify with. One of the questions I get asked most frequently is "how do I find what style best fits my body?". While there are correct answers for this question (take my free body shape analysis and i'll send you a shopping list specific to your body shape), my answer usually is, make sure you're wearing the right size. If something is too small, you'll look bigger than you are... and if something is too big, you'll look bigger than you are. When you wear your TRUE SIZE you will complement your already perfect body.
Anyways, what I ended up finding was that whether I tried on a size four, six, or eight they all fit the same... and were all SUPER tight. And if you're thinking.. uh then you should wear a ten Meredith, you're wrong. My body technically measures for a 4/6. There's no reason a six or eight should be tight. Actually, the two size eights I tried on were tighter than the fours and sixes. There's NO reason for that besides trash manufacturing.
All the jeans I tried on were from different brands, were different cuts, rises, and styles.
HOW do we have this much inconsistency in the denim industry?!
I don't have time for inconsistency. So maybe I'm dramatic... but I decided to never try to wear jeans ever again.
[I barely did anyway]
Here's a guide to help you NEVER wear real pants ever again.
1. Leggings.. obvi.
I'm sure you have a pair of black leggings... if you don't I'm not sure I can trust you.
Jk but here's a some if you need a 10th pair ;-)
Black leggings are my favorite, but, I have recently had my life changed by knee-hole leggings 😯
I love a good black knee-hole jean lewk but those are canceled, remember??
I got mine from Dressed in Lala and I love them! But, they're sold out in every size but a large.
So Shop Here:
Lastly, leggings don't have to just be black. Mix it up a little! (JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THINGS LIVING DO NOT WEAR NUDE LEGGINGS)
I love the look of animal print leggings. I'm extra enough that leopard print is just a neutral to me.
