I had an appointment today that took me to a mall I don’t normally go to, and low and behold two items from yesterdays wish list happened to be available for try-on! I ordered the Adidas Jacket and the 501’s last night but they haven’t arrived yet, so I was really glad I got to try them on early. In my wishlist yesterday I showed the Levi’s in the 501 cut, but actually, I preferred Levi’s Wedgie Fit Jeans on me so the 501’s I ordered will go back.
My Lululemon Move Lightly Pants arrived. I’m going to post that fit review later tonight, so stay tuned. In the meantime, reader Andrea left this try on comment about them:
“Dropped by a Lulu store and got a pair of Move Lightly Pant in Blue Tied which is a beautiful bluish grey. I prefer the length of Move Lightly Pant to On The Fly Pant and at 5’3”, it reaches about an inch above my ankle. The rise is higher than I thought and the waist is on the snug side (I’m 103 lbs and wear size 2). The pant looks flattering on my slim figure but two GECs have the same comment that it might not work on someone with a big hip. The material is really silky and comfy. I have two pairs of Lulu tencel pants I got maybe four years ago and they are still my favorite.”
I love this jacket and I’m so glad I ordered it. For some reason, I didn’t expect it to be soft on the inside, but it’s actually brushed and feels pretty cozy and light. I love the relaxed fit and generous length. This is a size large. This jacket is going to get so much use and will get worn every season.
The ‘mom jeans’! This is such a different style of jean for me but I really like them. I usually go for AG Jeans or J Brand and I almost always go for a skinny jean or a straight leg. The Levi’s Wedgie fit comes in both a straight leg and a skinny but both have a tapered fit and a contoured snug hip area and are a much higher waist then the typical straight leg or skinny jeans. They feel really different on, and just so comfortable. I didn’t realize that both the 501’s and the Wedgie fit had button up fly. When I saw them in store today I was so disappointed because I thought I would hate that feature, but actually, I don’t mind it at all. I love the thickness of the cotton and the dense knit. It’s soft but feels very structured compared to my other denim. I also think that a high waist with straight leg combo is much more leg lengthening on my shape.
I think I like this jean for wearing with a pretty blousy summer top or something really feminine vs. pairing them with sneakers and a tee shirt.
The 501’s were similar in the leg but not as high waisted. Had I not tried both pairs on I probably would have been very happy with the 501’s I ordered but comparing the two, the Wedgie was the winner.
