A review of Hanes Just My Size is behind the jump. If clothing reviews are your thing, than click on through!
I received $200 from Hanes to shop for this review, and did I know what I was getting into? I kind of did not. But I would never write a review that wasn’t honest, so rest assured, these are my Real Opinions™.
AHanes Just My Size (which offers clothes in sizes up to 4X) gave me the opportunity to go pick out some clothes and write about them. And since the clothes ranged from $9 to $15—even the jeans were just $15—I was able to get a lot of clothes for the money.
The first picture is a before-and-after dressing room shot. As you can see, I was just wearing my basic jeans (my favorites, Lee) and a tank top from Target, which is where I usually shop for wardrobe basics. Then I tried the JMS jeans and floral top. The pants have a nice dark wash, skinny-leg look. And they are very comfortable. The biggest negative for me is that they have no pockets. Also they have an elastic waist, which gives me the heebies. I know I’m not alone here.
Anyway, I generally prefer boot-cut jean styles, but I feel like I could experiment with these pants, plus my own top, if I were feeling brave. (Do skinny jeans work on fat girls? I might need to consult some Fatshionistas on this.)The top I’m wearing in the picture feels a little matronly for me—although if you worked in a conservative office, and only had $12 to spend, it would be a great choice.
I also tried a tank with a scarf that I didn’t end up getting, because it quite frankly seems like an insane item of clothing. Two tank tops and a scarf? I don’t get it. The material also seemed really flimsy, and did not look upscale. At all.
The good: a lot of basics in a lot of colors for a very low price-point: I liked the floral tank tops (black and brown) and the navy blue scoop-neck shirt I got. But the more fashion-forward pieces fell flat for me, although I can imagine other people really loving them. Actually, I was tempted to get a bunch of stuff my mom, because these are clothes that she would love—reasonably priced, bright colors, floral patterns, lots of glitter. They even had orange!
