For most types of clothing, the shopping process is straightforward enough: find an item you like, in a size that fits.
But with items like suits, jackets and jeans, the process is rarely that easy. Unless you fit a sample size, it can be hard to find a fitted item that flatters your curves nicely.
Shopgirls Gallery Boutique is stepping up to help shoppers with this dilemma – particularly when it comes to jeans. The Queen Street establishment is hosting a ‘Dr. Denim Clinic’, where guests will be receive a body-type diagnosis and a “prescription” for the perfect pair of jeans.
The ‘doctor’, in this case, is Eric Wazana, creator of Second Denim Co.– the Canadian brand which manufacturers the Yoga Jeans sold by Shopgirls.
Second Denim boasts an impressive collection of jeans, with a selection of different styles that’s almost overwhelming. The pants are available in low, mid and high-rise fits, with styles ranging from ‘super skinny’ to ‘super flared’, and various different lengths and colours.
They’re appropriately dubbed ‘Yoga Jeans’ for their stretchy, comfy material. A proud owner of high-rise skinny Yoga Jeans myself, I can vouch for them: they’re by far the comfiest jeans I own.
Given the variety of available styles, however, I can see how some expert advice could help an intimidated first-time buyer narrow down the options and find the pair of jeans best suited to her body.
As a bonus, clinic guests can enter to win a pair of Yoga jeans, and will be among the first to see the new limited edition Shopgirls Yoga Jeans by Second. Clinic details are below.
