DG2 Flex Stretch
How does everyone feel about Diane Gilman’s new flex stretch jeggings? I fell for the sales pitch and tried them. They are comfortable BUT the fit is odd and they wrinkle and crinkle on the body in a very really odd way. Maybe it is because I am not as thin as a model. Also, they are very lightweight. I wish I had not worn the one pair because I really hate these jeggings. I will definitely be sending back the second pair as well as the the ones I got for my grand daughter. I would be embarrassed to give them to her.
On the flip side, I really like her asymmetrical sweater. It is a good weight without being too heavy and it is very cute. I got the magenta. The color is beautiful. I wish I’d bought other colors of that instead of the flex stretch jeggings. aNyway, just wondering what others thought.
I did not have any DG2 in my wardrobe until I received a sample pair of the flexstretch jeggings in advance of the TS launch to review. I was quite impressed with the fabric & fit & liked them a lot. I ordered more in black as well as the co-ordinating jacket – I am just as pleased with that piece.
I haven’t tried those but I did buy a pair of her other jeans and they fit funny and stank something terrible! Plus they are way too expensive! They went back and won’t try again!
I love mine. Ordered 3 pairs in the classic indigo and one pair in black. THe fact she offers talls is fantastic. These are perfect for boots or with flats and the wash and dry like a dream. Size, however…. I went down 4 sizes to get a pair that fit correctly. CS was great in dealing with this so, no complaints at all.
My black flex stretch jeans arrived yesterday and luckily I am loving them. They fit snugly everywhere, the waist is so comfortable and after wearing them for two days, there is no wrinkling or crinkling anywhere. Well, let me take that back. There is a little wrinkling around the knees which so far isn’t enough to bother me. I just use my foot to scrunch it down every once in a while. The regular length is just right (I’m 5’6). The comfort level is truly everything Diane said it was so I’m a pretty happy camper with this new fabric. Oh,,,I like the bigger back pockets!
I have 3 pants from DG, they all fit fine….I am going to wait on mine to see what this fabrication is like. Will report back, on wait list
After reading all the negative reviews online about this TS, I’m soooo glad I cancelled my order! I had already sworn off her jeans because of sizing being all over the place, but let her presentation of these sucker me back in. Glad I came to my senses in time to cancel the order!!
I haven’t received mine yet but the fact that they wrinkle and crinkle on the body is not encouraging. I’m hoping I’ll like the black ones I ordered; don’t mind lightweight at all.
HSN guarantees your satisfaction with the product so even if you’ve worn the jeans, you can return them for a refund. I’d just wash them first and put them in the box with your second pair and send them back.
I was wondering how the new flex stretch jeggings were. Did you size down or buy your regular size? I didn’t purchase them this time but was curious. I have had great luck with her boyfriend sweaters and a couple of other long sleeve tops. They wash well and hold their shape and color very well. I had her other jeggings and what I didn’t like about those was as I wore them they got baggy in the crotch area and slipped down and also got baggy in the knees and I had to constantly yank them up and was embarrassing so I just wear them around the house now with a long tunic. Just curious is this the same fit in the flex stretch? I really wish she would get consistent in her sizing as I am sure a lot of others do because you never know what size to buy and I do not like to return things and have to pay return s&h. Glad you like your sweater. Happy holidays to you 🙂
