Frequently asked questions about plus size straight fit pants

How do I style my plus size straight fit pants?

Plus size straight fit pants work well with just about any type of shoes, including brogues, trainers, and wedge sandals. Cotton pants look their best with flats and heels, and plus size straight fit jeans go hand in hand with sports shoes. Tops and blouses in darker tones can help conceal any hints of muffin tops or tummies, and plus size accessories like frilly scarves can help create the illusion of a slimmer torso. Plus size cardigans do the heavy lifting when it comes to balancing the look and drawing attention to the hips, thanks to their low, flowing hems. But playing with color accents and understated tones can also help emphasize some features and minimize others, especially since cotton pants come in all the colors of the rainbow. Black, dark, and muted tones are ideal for hiding any lumps and bumps, while bright yellow, red, and orange tops will draw all the attention to the upper body. Another option is to opt for more robust, ribbing fabrics like bengaline to keep those assets in check with form-fitting pants.

Why does the label matter in plus size straight fit pants?

In terms of pants and denim, the production process is often harmful to the environment. Checking the label of plus size straight fit pants by Ulla Popken can bring peace of mind and reassure buyers of every product's quality. For instance, the So Proper-So Prospective label signifies that the pants are made sustainably, while Oeko-Tex is a health label for textiles, which certifies the safety of garments by checking for toxic substances.

How do I wash plus size straight fit pants?

Taking that extra bit of care with cleaning a pair of plus size straight fit pants can prolong the garment's life by months or even years. Since they are made primarily of cotton, Ulla Popken straight leg pants are best washed on a cold, delicate wash cycle, except for jeans, which should fare well on a normal wash. Most of these amazingly versatile pants can be ironed on a medium heat setting and without steam, but never bleached or tumble dried. Finally, while dry cleaning is usually an option for cotton pants, it's rarely advisable with denim.
