Free People Just Float on Flare, a stretchy denim dream!
I have been looking for months and no that is not an exaggeration, for a very dramatic flare jean. You know how difficult it is to find plus size denim in a style that just isn’t available to the plus size market? Hard as fuck, no one seems to want to make this style in sizes 16+. I have searched my usual plus size carrying stores; Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Charlotte Russe, Forever21, Torrid, ASOS, Eloquii, Modcloth (a first, not a usual browser on there), even went on American Eagle, which I haven’t done in a couple years (they now go up to size 20, which is awesome) and no one, I mean not one of those retail stores had a 70’s wide flare inspired jean in a plus size. Why? Why is it so hard to find exactly what I am looking for in my size? I will never understand why it is so difficult for all retail companies to carry a wider range of sizes but heres to hoping that it will soon change.
So my normal stores didn’t provide for me but Free People came through with these Just Float on Flare jeans. A super stretchy material and that 70’s very wide flared inspired look, I was satisfied. The only thing about these are they are tighter than I would like, like suffocating tight. They are a size 31, I am normally a size 16/18 in plus size denim. I have never even purchased denim ranging in sizes 24-31 but I’m giving them a chance. The stretchy jegging like material is my only saving grace on these babies. So if you are looking for that wide flare jean and just can’t seem to get your hands on a pair in a plus size, try these Free People Just Float on Flare jeans. They definitely conform to the body and give you enough give to button and zip yourself in. Don’t be put back by my suffocating tight comment, I swear you can breathe when you wear them!
Also, I don’t dress for Texas weather, I don’t know if I ever will. I’m wearing an off the shoulder sweater like tunic/dress from foi clothing boutique, in 100 degree weather. Am I insane? Yes I was hot but I couldn’t wait to wear this piece and it will be great for the beginning of fall. Still available in a size Large, so run and grab it. Comfortable and a perfect shade of yellow.
Does anyone have any places that they look for denim, other than the places listed above (in my rant)?
