One of the eight new LuLaRoe Styles has finally arrived, The LuLaRoe GiGi! Yes, I say finally, because I live in Wisconsin I usually get the goods about three days after the retailers that live a state or two away from the warehouse. But hey, that’s okay because then I get to peek at what is coming! GiGi is LuLaRoe’s first fitted top. You asked for a fitted top and LuLaRoe listened. Yes, definitely expect GiGi to fit a bit differently than your favorite LuLaRoe Perfect Tee and LuLaRoe Irma.
Is GiGi True to size?
The short answer is, yes! The one piece of advise I tell everyone is size is only a number, especially with LuLaRoe, shop by pattern not size. Some styles run true to size, while others I suggest sizing up or down. Proving, you should shop for a PRINT and not your size. Gigi is no different. And since this is a fitted top, sizing up three or four sizes won’t leave you with saggy armpits and lots of extra fabric to worry about!
Based on the sizing chart, I’d definitely say it it true to size. Keep in mind, it’s a fitted top, so think of GiGi as a LuLaRoe Julia hemmed at the hips. Your size based on the sizing chart will truly be fitted. I am a size 6-8, so based on that I tried a medium first. It fit well, it almost felt a little tight in my arms at first, but that loosened up. The medium fit so well I didn’t want to even try to squeeze in to a small.
If you are board shouldered or busty, sizing up one from the sizing chart is my recommendation and size up two or more sizes for a less fitted look.
In the photo you can see my bra line. Yea, I’d rather not have that showing, but I am also WAY over due for a bra fitting. But I am waiting to be completely done nursing my daughter before I go and spend money on a bra! Fellow moms, I’m sure you understand where I’m coming from! hehe
What is the length like of GiGi?
The length of the LuLaRoe GiGi is perfection! It hits me right about mid hit/bum area for sizes medium to x-large. Once I got to sizes 2XL and 3XL it was longer than my bum. The sleeves are fitted as well and hit right about my elbows. Now, keep in mind I am 5’2″ so the average to tall girls, the bottom of GiGi will hit higher on your hips and arms.
What should I wear with GiGi?
I am not one to tell you GiGi MUST be worn with another LuLaRoe piece. Obviously, I’m here to help you find that perfect matching piece, but let’s be real we all have our favorite pair of jeans. GiGi will look fabulous with your favorite pair of jeans! She will also look AMAZING with all the LuLaRoe skirts, my favorites being the LuLaRoe Madison and LuLaRoe Cassie. For a complete look add a blazer, a LuLaRoe Joy or any of the LuLaRoe Kimonos for a master piece of an outfit!
How do I style my over-sized GiGi?
You don’t NEED to do anything with your over-sized LuLaRoe GiGi! However, pull that extra fabric together like your making a pony tail and make a knot like you’re tying a water balloon. I like easy styling tips, and this is one of them! Pair that cute knotted GiGi with a LuLaRoe Madison or LuLaroe Cassie skirt and your on for date night, a day with the girls, or a rehearsal dinner for your best friends wedding.
