This is a bit of a departure for me when it comes to writing review posts. This is because, in nearly four years of blogging, I have only ever once posted a review of a pair of jeans. The reason for this is quite simple – I don’t generally like jeans, and so I don’t really wear them that much.
I find jeans problematic. I have long legs, but a jelly belly. I like my jeans to sit on my waist, or even higher if possible. I’m not a huge fan of boyfriend styles – I don’t think they do anything for curvy girls, and had always opted for bootcut as I believed these were the best jeans to balance out and flatter curves. Finding a great pair of jeans for me had been somewhat elusive.
And this is why I got a little excited when I was asked if I wanted to review something from the new and improved F&F True range of plus size clothing from Tesco. Quite simply put, my favourite pair of jeans of all time came from Tesco (you can read that review here), and the new F&F collection has quite a few pairs of jeans that instantly took my eye. I had no hesitation in choosing a pair for review.
The jeans I chose were the F&F Triw Supersoft plus size skinny jeans in classic blue. I liked these from the picture, the blue was a nice dark indigo shade, and I liked the fact that they sat upon the waist. I was also drawn to the fact they were both soft and stretchy – I’ve never worn skinnies and was just a little worried about getting them on easily…
These jeans are really impressive, and an absolute bargain for just £14. They sit nicely on the waist, and are totally easy to get on and off (phew!). The length of the leg was perfect for me, sitting neatly on the ankles and so allowing me to wear flat pumps without treading on the leg. These are comfortable, stretchy skinny jeans, but not drainpipes, and I think they are quite leg lengthening – always a bonus!
The stretch makes these really comfortable, and also practical – I spend a lot of time playing on the floor with my five year old son, so I don’t want jeans that are stiff, or dig into my waist. I also love the fact that the indigo is as rich and dark as it appeared on the website. I think dark denim are a smart choice that can take you from day to night wear. These jeans are versatile enough to be teamed with heels for drinks at the pub, as well as wearing for a shopping trip.
I have been really impressed with my first piece from the new F&F True collection. Next up, I will be reviewing a dress from the range.
