Universal Standard had a pop-up event in Portland, OR on September 16. I stopped by to check out the designs that are all created to flatter the curvy figure. I was excited about this brand when I heard about it earlier this year on the Today show. Honestly, I was absolutely stunned when I tried on some of the pieces. These are all investment type pieces - they are not cheap. But almost every single piece of clothing I tried on was ULTRA comfortable. The green sweater dress? It feels like you are wearing PJs, but you look pulled together and ready for a professional event or night on the town. The black dress is on my wish list. It's $160, but literally the perfect little black dress. Small details like slightly curved seams are all designed to flatter your figure and you feel completely comfortable while looking stylish too. I only tried on the jeans because I needed something to wear with some tops that I picked out and I was absolutely blown away by the fit. They are the MOST FLATTERING jeans I have ever worn. They hit just right at your waist pulling in your stomach and actually lengthen your legs. The indigo is super dark blue. I ordered the indigo jeans and the distressed black, which looks like a grey. The jeans were $90 each and high quality. I also love the cutaway tee (cream). I was going to order it in black, but it's currently backordered. They are also doing a model contest at their pop-up events, which I, of course, entered. It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a new clothing line! I definitely plan to add some other pieces from Universal Standard to my wardrobe.
Sizing information: The sizing is different than other clothing. I wear a size 18 normally. I wore a size 16 Long for the jeans as they run big. For all the other items, I wore a Medium in Universal Standard sizing.
