If you’ve been around in the LuLaRoe world for a while, you will remember when the Jax joggers first launched during the 2018 Americana collection, called American Dreams. Not sure what I’m talking about? Click HERE to read my announcement. After this launch, the Jax took a hiatus for more than a year. Now the Jax is back, and they are finally making an appearance in my boutique. So, let’s get down to it! It’s time for me to finally write my honest LuLaRoe Jax Review.
What is the LuLaRoe Jax?
The Jax jogger features hip pockets, bottom cuffs, and a drawstring waist. If you want more details on the Jax, click the link above.
LuLaRoe Jax Review: Price
At $48, the Jax has completely lived up to my expectations. Would I pay this for a well made pair of joggers? Yes, I would.
LuLaRoe Jax Review: Fabric
The Jax had a revamp from the first round of joggers to the most current run. The first run were a true terry fabric. In my opinion (isn’t this entire blog my opinion?), this fabric was rather rough, pilled like crazy, and were warm.
The revamped Jax come in a fabric called French Terry. This fabric wears much better. It has a slick feel on the outside and is softer on the inside. It isn’t like a towel like you would expect hearing the name terry. However, these aren’t made from sweatshirt fabric, so if that’s what you’re expecting, these aren’t that.
LuLaRoe Jax Review: Fit
Ok, this is probably why you’re here. You want to know my take on the fit of the LuLaRoe Jax.
Why do you want to know my stats? This will help you make a decision on what size works best for you.
I’m 5’4″, a size 12/14 (leaning towards 14 lately), hourglass/borderline pear shape-which means I carry my weight in my lower stomach, hips, thighs, and booty, and 100% loving myself today.
I’m not going to lie. I REALLY didn’t think the mediums would fit. I almost didn’t bring them with me when I went to take photos. Color me shocked when I slipped into them!
Let me be honest. These were tight. They weren’t tight to the point of being uncomfortable, but they were 1 step up from leggings. They’re not slouchy, are very fitted, but were comfortable. I do think that the waistband would bite into my taco baby if I sat down, so I would partner these with a looser fitting shirt.
Large is my typical size. These were obviously looser, but I honestly felt that they weren’t as loose as I’d like for a slouchy look. They definitely work and I will make them them work for the right print, but based on the size of my booty, these were just in between when it comes to comfort. Someone who doesn’t have a booty that deserves it’s own zip code probably would feel completely comfortable in their true size.
For a loose, slouchy look, this will be my go-to size. These are oversized, but not crazy big. The cuffs aren’t too big, so I can push them up or wear them down at my ankles and they stay. The waistband isn’t biting into my taco baby. I have complete use of the pockets. When I’m flying or traveling, these will probably be what I grab.
Now we’re getting into the territory of too big. The bottom cuff is too big, so I have to push them almost to my knee to get them to stay if I want a cropped look. Because of the extra fabric, I have to hike them way up to make the front waist lay mildly flat and not fold over. Yet again, if it was the correct print, I would make this size work.
LuLaRoe Jax Review: Overall Thoughts
I’m very pleased with the revamp of the Jax. If they would have been made with the original fabric, I wouldn’t have been as thrilled to bring them in. But, the new fabric and added cuff on the bottom (the original launch was just elastic) make them worth it in my opinion.
