A few months ago, I was introduced to a clothing company called LulaRoe! I’d heard of it in passing, but hadn’t ever tried their stuff before. I connected with Lauren and JJ (two LulaRoe stylists) because I was going to have them provide some clothing for the Southern Women’s Show fashion show I did back in April. After meeting them and seeing the LulaRoe pieces first hand, I fell in LOVE!
I have since become a MASSIVE fan of LulaRoe and I pretty much want to shout it from the rooftops how much I love their clothes.
I love companies that plant their roots here and create jobs here in America! That also means the people making the clothes are being paid a fair wage and work in good conditions! YAY!
(*post edited / updated May 2016: while a good portion of their clothing is still made in the United States, they do manufacture outside of the United States now as well.)
Their leggings were never made in the United States… The reason for this is China actually holds the patent on the machine that helps to make the leggings buttery soft.
LulaRoe has also experienced insane growth over the last year, and to help meet demand, they have opened factories in places like Guatemala and Mexico. I have looked into this at great length, interviewed people, emailed, asked, and done my due diligence to find out…
From everything I’ve been told, LulaRoe is still extremely commited to producing their clothing ethically. The people on the LulaRoe executive team have vetted their factories… The workers are of age, are paid a fair wage, are not coerced or forced to work, the working conditions are safe, etc.
Again, I do not work for LulaRoe, I am not a consultant, and I make no money from saying any of this… I just genuinely love the clothes and believe in the company.
Would it be best to have everything manufactured here in the USA? Of course! But, sadly, it isn’t realistic in order to meet the demand, while also producing a great product. LulaRoe is also not unique in having this problem. MANY companies end up outsourcing to meet demand… However, not many companies take the time to ensure their overseas manufacturing is ethically produced and managed. I hope this is helpful!)
One thing that is really cool about LulaRoe is that for every cut of fabric they get, they only make 1,000 pieces in that fabric and then… POOF! That particular fabric is gone from the presses… so while that means it may be tough for you to find an EXACT dress that you loved on someone else, that DOES mean that what you’re getting is unique and different and hardly anyone else is going to own the same dress as you! 🙂
Their leggings are like butter. Their tops are soft as silk. Their dresses are FLOWY and stretchy and so. so. so. forgiving and flattering and comfy! I love that I can just throw on a LulaRoe dress and head out the door and I feel cute, confident, pretty, and put together… yet the entire look was effortless!
The Amelia dress (which is the style I’m wearing here) is my favorite. It has POCKETS!!!!!!
The most expensive item in their collection is $55! Most dresses are in the $30 range! They even make little girl’s dresses that are super cute, too!
Since their fabrics vary so much and since the prints change so frequently, there’s literally a print or style for any woman. I love that! They have edgier prints, more traditional prints, romantic prints, and even classic solids. Any woman can find a dress or top or skirt in her style. They also have plus sizes which is AWESOME because that means pretty much any woman can find a dress that fits, too!
So yeah… as you can tell, I’m a LulaRoe fanatic. I can’t say enough good things about them!
What about you? Have you heard of LulaRoe? Have you tried any of their stuff?
