Denim Review & Giveaway: Barbara Lesser Fibers Denim (CLOSED)

by Jaime on January 20, 2010

One of my favorite parts of running this blog is being able to introduce you brands that will work for all different lifestyles. Sure, I like trendy denim every now and then, but a tried-and-true style is what every woman needs to start her denim collection.

So, I’m proud to present the Barbara Lesser brand to you. The name might sound a little familiar (BL is known for her fabulous dresses, which are available at many high-end department stores), but she’s trying something new with a denim line. Here’s a little bit of background on the brand (and what their denim line has to offer!):

Barbara Lesser launched a highly successful fashion line based on her own desire to look good yet remain comfortable during her hectic life. From the beach, to the party, to the office, Barbara wants exactly what her customer has come to expect – a look that’s fresh, casual, on trend, and fits like it was meant to be.
Barbara creates truly unique garments, working with local artisans and utilizing hand dye techniques to produce amazing color blends on T-shirts, dresses, pants and skirts. Most of the collection is made in California, defining the Lessers as strong supporters of the “made in U.S.A.” ideal. Barbara says that lifestyle, as well as fashion trends and exciting colors, play a large role in affecting her design decisions.
Our denim is cut to fit the modern woman. Jeans have a medium rise with a little extra back extension to the rise for added comfort. Our waistband is contoured so we get a lower rise in front than in the back. Jeans have a double-stitched zipper so the teeth never show, and our seams are stitched flat so they sit close to the body.
- 5-pocket boot leg cruiser with signature belt loops.
- Clean and skinny, no pockets, only a back yoke and skinny leg to wear with tunics.
- Lower rise 5-pocket jean with straight leg.
- Boyfriend jean, loose through the leg, tapered at the ankle, distressed and mended.

C. has hemmed these babies to the perfect length (I can’t help my terrible lack of height, no matter how much I want to!), but here are your before shots for accurate reference. Sure, they’re long (about 34″ inseam on the size 2), but they were a cinch to hem (well, at least that’s what C. said!).
I love that I’ve gotten the opportunity to showcase a premium denim line that is more in tune with real women (I love my $300+ jeans, but they’re just not a logical choice for most of us in the world) while still being really flattering! Plus, with a price tag of $129-149, these are a more financially realistic option
The pair I’m wearing (the Straight Leg) runs True to Size and offers a bit of an extra back rise to prevent that unattractive underwear flash that so many lower-cut jeans tend to show. The pockets are large enough to flatter (but not flatten!) and the length is great for taller women (and, as I said earlier, easy to hem for us shorter girls).
While I would recommend a couple of additions to their collection (different inseams, adding pockets to their skinny and hiring a new model who knows how to pose…), I am extremely pleased with the outcome of these. I wore them all day last Thursday without a single moment of discomfort and no tugging at the waistband to pull it up!
So, now that you know a little bit more about these spectacular babies… how about a chance to win a pair of your very own?
