Loft fitting room reviews

Loft is having a friends and family sale – get 40% off everything with code: FRIENDS.  Click HERE to shop the sale!  I tried on some items a few weeks ago but in all honesty, I left disappointed.  Due to the vanity sizing Loft has going on this year, everything looks awful on me.  Hopefully these reviews will help – just try to look past the poor fit.

Loft striped lace up side sweater (XS regular) // c/o River Island petite distressed Amelie jeans // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

I tried this sweater on for fun because you know I can’t resist a striped sweater (lol).  Unfortunately my Loft didn’t have any petite sizes in store however it is available online.  Comes in two different colors – I prefer the fresh navy personally but the coral red is fun and different.  Love the lace up side details.  The material is 100% cotton and very soft.  Debating if I should get the XXSP in fresh navy…do I really need another striped sweater?  No but it’s hard to say no (lol).  I’m trying on XS regular and seems to run true to size.  I think the petite sizing would look much better.  Would recommend.

Loft daisy chain lace tee (XXSP)// c/o River Island petite distressed Amelie jeans // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

I had high hopes for this but sizing runs large and very boxy.  I like the details but it didn’t do it for me. I think it would look much better if it fit properly.  You can wear this to work or casually with jeans and shorts.  I would recommend it but size down if possible.

Loft Lace Sleeve Button Back Sweater (XXSP) // c/o River Island petite distressed Amelie jeans // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

This is one of the better fitting items I tried on.  I like the concept of the lace sleeves and button back however the material is very thin and semi-sheer.  It also feels like it would snag easily too which is a big no no for me. I think there are better tops so I’d pass on this one.

Loft flutter lace dress (XXSP) // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

OMG. The fit on this dress makes me look like I’m expecting!  Sizing runs extremely generous and the dress has NO shape whatsoever.  The color is very pretty but I think there are better lace dresses out there.  I was very disappointed with this one.  Come on Loft – get your sizing right!  Passed.

Loft shimmer floral flounce dress (XXSP) // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

I’m torn about the print of this dress.  I can’t decide if I love or hate it.  Flounce dresses rarely look good on me and this confirms that I am not meant for this style.  Sizing runs very big and just looks wrong.  I think it could potentially be cute on someone taller.  It wasn’t my cup of tea – passed.

Loft fan lace dress (XXSP) // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

How do you get navy and lace wrong?  This dress is horrible on me!  It has no shape, runs very wide and boxy.  I am shocked it got some great reviews online. Is it me? What the heck?!  Passed.

Loft painterly floral flutter shirtdress (XXSP) // J.Crew leopard viv flats (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet crystal sparkle necklace (similar HERE)

I only tried this dress on because it’s nursing friendly.  I’m not loving the print – not sure what Loft has going on this season with all the different prints but I’m not a fan.  This dress fit decent but only because of the waist tie.  I’d remove it and wear it with a cute belt instead. Sizing runs true to size and I’m trying on XXPS.  Didn’t love it – passed.

Here are some other items that look like they have potential.  Clearly everything I tried on was a bust for me.  If you need a classic denim jacket, this one looks promising.  I have one from a few years ago and love it.  I’m thinking about getting these petite modern skinny ankle jeans – looks like they have the perfect inseam (25″) for gals with short legs.  I have several pair of Loft jeans from years ago and I love them!

Loft Sale Picks

You know I’m a huge fan of Loft and have been for many many years but seriously, this sizing situation has to stop!  The only items I’ve kept recently is this twill utility jacket (see review HERE), striped pleated skirt and this pocket scalloped skirt.  Other than that, I haven’t really all that excited about the new prints and styles. 🙁

Hope you’re able to snag some good deals!  XO
