I’ve spoken before on the blog about how difficult it is to find ethical and sustainable clothing in plus sizes. There are some great ethical brands out there, but most are simply not accessible to anyone above a size 14. So you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by Canadian company Miik to let me know that they were planning to expand their size range to XXL and asked me if I’d like to try a pair of their Lisa2 leggings, the first design they’ve rolled out in the new size.
I am not exaggerating when I say that they are the most comfortable pair of leggings I’ve ever owned. They’re made from rayon from bamboo and are soft and breathable. I’ve been practically living in them since I received them (I’m wearing them now, in fact!) and after owning them for a few weeks, I can’t picture myself without a pair of these in my closet. They are perfection.
I decided to pair the Lisa2 leggings with my super-comfy crop top from local Ottawa designer Rebecca Rowe. I love the versatility of this sweater – I wear it both on its own and over a flowy top or dress, and have found myself reaching for it regularly ever since I purchased it at her pop-up shop this winter. It’s a workhorse that truly belongs in anyone’s capsule wardrobe.
If you’re looking for the perfect leggings, I strongly recommend the Lisa2 from Miik. You can use the discount code Annette15 for 15% off your purchase (not an affiliate code, just a discount if you’re interested in giving them a try. 😊)
I’m excited for Miik to release more designs in larger sizes. I’m always on the lookout for ethically made styles in my size, and I’m crushing hard on Miik’s comfortable yet professional aesthetic. Thanks Miik for listening to your customers and offering your clothes in my size!
[Side note: this was my first-ever solo photoshoot! It took a lot of tries to get this right, but I’m happy with the results. Still, I can’t wait until we don’t have to self-isolate anymore and I can work with a photographer again (Charlotte Rosalyn Photography I miss you!!!! 😭)]
