When you're dead inside but it's christmas
New to Lola Monroe Boutique sizing?
We PRIDE ourselves on carrying mom tum, curvy body, taco and carb friendly clothes! The majority of our items will accentuate the bust and be flowy around the stomach area.
Please read description of each denim/legging/shoe style for specific fit advice.
Our general sizing for most TOPS is:
Though each item will have fabric, fit and feel updated as well.
New to shopping for denim online? We reference all sizes based on your TRUE even department store size. If you haven't worn true fitted jeans/pants WITH stretch before, feel free to email us or post in our FB group for fit help. Posting with a pic is super helpful too!
We also measure while LAYING FLAT: inseam/rise on pants and length & width on our tops.
Make sure to measure at least once so you can have an idea where an item will land length wise and fit on your body shape.
Knowing and EMBRACING your body shape is so important for dressing and feeling confident! It is 1,000% ok to acknowledge that every style will NOT look great on every body shape!
Scroll past the video collection for more written help :-)
We ONLY carry Mid and High Rise denim styles that stretch to compliment the curves. In general, take your EVEN department store size and size down ONE size to find your starting size for each pair that Ashley will talk about in each fit video.
Size 2-16 Regular will always start sizing down one for their base size.
14 wears a 13, 12 wears an 11.
Size 14W-24W if you know your Torrid/Lane Bryant size will be true to size.
If you know your Old Navy/AE/Gap size, size down ONE for your base size. (20 wears an 18w, 18 wears a 16w, 16 plus size wider hip wears our 14w and 16/17 narrow hips with tummy weight wears our 15 regular)
Always watch the fit video for the pair you're looking at. Cotton Content, Rise, Color, Cut and overall wash can sometimes make a pair super stretchy and we want to make sure you get the correct size the first time.
Please note: We do reference sizing from your EVEN size because we find that odd sizes in many stores run small and are confusing. Ash is a 14 in most stores and a 13 in Judy Blue but if she went off her ODD size at Target/AE she would be in the 15 while many of our 2-6 ladies like their smaller odd size in many stores. Starting with your even size is the best apples to apples sizing comparison.
May find that sizing down 2 odd sizes or 1 plus size is best to keep the curves hugged and have that booty pop fit when pairs have great stretch (each pair has a fit video and written listing).
Most denim styles will be flattering on these shapes in general.
How you carry weight in your tummy area will likely determine your FAVORITE jean types.
Boyfriend and relaxed fit jeans may fit baggy Or fitted depending on your leg composition. Ashley has muscular legs so most straight/boyfriend jeans have a fitted straight leg appearance on her.
Pear and Apple shapes:
Often struggle with fit of skinny jeans.
Many prefer a straight leg. The reason for this is that sizing to accomodate a larger tummy and smaller legs means that skinny jeans can be baggy in the legs and look awkward as they taper in at the ankle. A straight/relaxed leg will look intentional with room.
If you want to show off some silhouette, slim/relaxed and straight leg will be your bestie!
Boyfriend jeans will have a straight leg also. If you want to hide a bit of your shape, boyfriend jeans worn with a top long enough to cover your hips will be a great option also.

USPS ARRIVING LATE STATUS:
Please note that we PRIDE ourselves on fast shipping. And in 99.9% of cases, the post office and fedex deliver quickly. But we do have several dozen packages each month that get stuck in the USPS ARRIVING LATE window and stop getting scanned.
While this is 100% out of our control, you can set up TEXT ALERTS on the usps tracking website to get orders moving. This works in over 99% of cases.
For arriving late orders where text alerts don't get the package moving, 15 days after the item was first scanned in, you can email us so that we can put in an initial research request with USPS. They have 60 days from first scan to work on this for us.
If post office delays will turn you into a crazy meany head, we may not be the right boutique for you ;-)
Packages completely missing more than 30 days: Route Shipping Insurance is ONLY available on our website and will insure your lost packages. This is the ONLY way to insure your packages. If you opt out of this insurance, you take on risk of missing packages yourself.
Please note that custom items, mystery items and pre-sale orders will be subject to the shipping times posted on that item.
In my mystery box, I received a pair of extremely distressed jean shorts. I will only wear them inside my house. The holes are in places that should not have holes. That being said, the fit and comfort made me find another more conservative pair of shorts on the website that I just received and absolutely LOVE. JUDY BLUE and Lola Monroe are both awesome. Thank you for making me fall in love with shorts again.
