Fit Review Werkshop Geisha Full Length Legging!

October 19, 2016

The Geisha legging is my favorite from Werkshop's Zen Garden collection.  The artwork on it is beautifully done.  The colors are gorgeous.  So I was super excited to finally get them last week, but as soon as I tried them on I knew they didn't work on petite gals.  This made me really sad because the print is so amazing.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and usually a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.


One of the most challenging things about being super petite is finding clothes that does not make us look short.  If something makes my legs look loooooong, it's a keeper.  In the photo above, you can see the face of the Geisha takes up almost half of my leg lengthwise.  And it draws the eye downwards making my leg look short.  There's not much to go after the neckline of her kimono = short legs.  I also think the white band on the lower part of the legging near my shin, doesn't help either.  The next photo highlights this even more so.  


This is so unfortunate because I sooooo wanted to keep these.  Fit wise I ordered the size small and they fit exactly like all my other Werkshop leggings.  I do not like my leggings to be compressive and for me these feel about medium weight.  In the next photo you can see the headdress on the left leg go past my knee, which also contributes to making my legs look short.  


The back is gorgeous and I wish these worked for me.  If you're of average height or even just a few inches taller than me, they may work.  These also come in crop length but I don't think that would help much.  I did however just get another pair in Onyx that make my legs look looooong and those are a definite keeper.  I'll have a review up of those as soon as I take some photos.



And as always, I like to mention that if you're new to Werkshop you can receive $10 off your first purchase with my referral link.

    1. I'm actually exchanging the Geisha for Crane haha! So hopefully that will arrive sometime next week too. Lucky you! I'm always good to give Lulu a few hundred every month. It's such an expensive habit lol.

  4. I absolutely love it! The zip around wallet is the best thing I've purchased in a long time. I took a few photos and would like to write a little something up. I was trying to figure out the best way to write it up and how to send them to you.

    1. I would like to do a little review. I did not know what I wanted so I ordered 4 of the nocturnal collection wallets to compare the zip around wallet, zipper keyholder, cardholder and card organizer. I believe it is about 8 photos and would be a couple sentences for each photo. Just don't know what format works best to transfer onto the blog. Want to make it easy.

    3. I don't mind you posting the review. I just need to know how to format it to you? Do you want an email or word document?

      Delete
    4. Email would probably be easier? You can also send me more than one email if you need to if there are a lot of photos to make it simpler. Thanks!!
