I was introduced to LuLaRoe by a friend at work. She added me to a seller’s Facebook group and I decided to give them a try, since my friend let me feel how soft the leggings were. They seemed really comfortable and like silk, but thicker material. My first purchase happened to be size Tween leggings that was paired with an Irma top (size XXS) for a bundle deal to save $3. I did not pay shipping since my friend knew the seller and she picked them up for me!
I am a size 2 pant, XS shirt, and 5’0″ tall, so the Tween leggings fit pretty well on me length wise and waist wise. They are a bit tight, but they are so stretchy I barely notice. They say the shirts run a size big, and I can see how that would be since a XXS was still pretty large! It was ok though, since I wanted it to be loose over the leggings. I really enjoyed pairing the leggings with oversized sweaters as well. I’ve also worn the shirt with jeans or black leggings. The shirt is not as soft as the leggings, just a regular cotton feel, but still very comfortable. I love all the leggings I see my friend wearing. I would probably not wear them to work if she didn’t do so as well!
I have worn these leggings many times, but I think my one mistake is that I put them in the dryer. The softness has seemed to fade a bit and they have shrunk a little, but not drastically noticeable. I would recommend leaving these out to dry flat. There are instructions given when you purchase these leggings and I will follow them from now on! Care directions for all LuLaRoe clothing are as follows:
That same friend happened to give me another pair, which I love, for my birthday! These are One Size fits all (OS) and fit much more loosely and comfortably than the Tween. They are still tight at the waist, but I feel that there is much more room in the legs and butt of the leggings with OS compared to Tween. The above photo is after a couple of washes (Tween size on right). I pair all of my leggings with flats or boots, which seem to be the best with this fashion trend.
My second LuLaRoe purchase was recent and I’ve seen pop up parties posted ALL the time now! They are really gaining popularity. It was a pop up shop that was open for 24 hours and you have to say “SOLD” on the clothing items you want (along with any other seller instructions, such as adding your email address and or zip code). The items can be found in their album folders on the event or group page. This party had “free” shipping, but it was just automatically in the price of each item. For instance, my first seller did not include shipping, since she allowed buyers to meet her instead of having to pay for shipping. This was very nice, but some sellers are too far, so having shipping automatically in the pricing was also helpful when purchasing from my second seller. I received my items within 3 business days! This will depend on the seller, of course.
Overall, I really love the quality of these clothing items. They are rather pricey ($20+ for leggings and $30+ for tops), but the patterns are one of a kind and run out quickly. I really enjoy going to all of the pop up parties on Facebook, even if it is to just look at the most recent patterns. I even got my sister hooked on these lovely leggings! 🙂
So, what do you think about the new crazy pattern trend? Do you own any LuLaRoe clothing? Do you sell? How has your experience with them been? Comment below or comment on my Facebook page!
