Most of us “older” millennials are a little surprised (and a little embarrassed to admit it) at how much we love shopping there. While many brands are cutting back on their smaller offerings, I’m grateful that A&F offers more sizes and lengths than ever before!
This was my first time trying out YPB and I was impressed with how well it fits a smaller frame and how many color options there are with coordinating tops!
I have to say that these bottoms run true to size – I tried on both xxs and xs and found the latter to be best for light workouts and casual. I’m currently sized around 100 lbs and am about 5 feet tall with more weight in my midsection, so the xxs size makes me look a bit like a muffin. The shorter length is perfect and as a mom of two, I love that it’s tall enough to cover my stretch marks.
These are one of my favorite finds lately and you’ll be seeing a lot of them in upcoming posts! Surprisingly, it’s hard to find classic high-waisted, straight-leg jeans that have a finished hem (not raw cut), no holes, and don’t need to be altered to fit nicely over shorts. I’m 5 feet tall and the shorts are slightly cropped, so the extra short is like a crop and probably best suited for someone under 4’11”.” See them in my mid here with high top Converse sneakers.
These are more rigid/low stretch denim fabric similar to Levi’s and Madewell jeans. They are slimmer and shorter than my Everlane Cheeky jeans, making them easier to wear and more stylish for those who want to get away from skinny jeans.
I believe the waist of these pants is perfect for TTS – I usually wear Abercrombie jeans between 24 and 25, and this time I wore a size 24, which was both comfortable and flattering. I definitely air dry these instead of machine drying, which usually causes all my denim to shrink a bit.
