i was very lucky, indeed, to be a part of the lane bryant blogger conference at full figured fashion week. that means i got to see what’s coming from the retailer in the fall, and i got an exclusive sneak peek at the couture bra they’re producing in limited edition with swarovski crystals! oo la la.
vote for me here, and then leave a note on the blog post saying that you voted. (comments are fixed – sorry about that!) if i win, then you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift certificate from lane bryant!
that means, you should tell your friends to vote for me, too, and increase the chances of your winning the gift certificate!
now … on to what’s coming from lane bryant!
there is new technology coming in their jeans called T3. that stands for tighter tummy technology, and what that means is that the jeans have a built-in control panel that has a slimming effect. it’s a mesh control panel that’s made out of heavy duty nylon and spandex, and it not only flattens the tummy, it’s also really comfortable. how do i know? i tried a pair on, and i tried on their current jeans, and i definitely felt all tucked in when i put on the T3 jeans. i wish the pockets were higher, however, because i felt like the pocket placement gave me saggy booty.
so – right fit v. t3 jeans? the jury is still out for me. we’ll see how well the t3 jeans hold up compared to their right fits. i am excited to report that there’s much less gapping going on in the waist band. YAY! they’re available in stores now in denim and classic-fit trousers in black, charcoal grey, brown herring bone and charcoal berry stripe. have you tried it?
learn more about the t3 technology in this video. lots of people report being in love with this fit! lane bryant was also so kind to give me the jeans that i tried on, that pink cami that i’m wearing, AND a $50 gift card. i feel like there is some serious receptiveness going on between the brand and the blogging community.
ok, so let’s talk about fall 2011 trends now. lane bryant is going a little edgier with the leather jacket with pink lining, and i’m happy to report that they are incorporating some fresher trends into their new looks. i love the purple burst pin that’s on the cardigan, and the charcoal ruffle twill jacket. word on the street is that the feather burst pin also goes in your hair. oo la la. check out the gallery below for all the photos.
oh, and did you see the studded leather jacket?! please make that be available in your stores lane bryant. please!!
