    Default Lorna Jane clothes... what is so good about it?

    what is so good about it? Can you justify the price? I don't understand the phenomenon..

    No idea. I don't understand the hype. I prefer the simple stuff from Kmart, Big W, and the like.

    I don't get it either. It's just the name (which I don't care about!). When I went in there for the first time, I almost fell over at the price of stuff.
    I also tried on a few of the gym tights, none of them fit me nicely.
    And I can't stand slogan shirts, so pretty much all of their shirts were a no-go for me as well!

    Any time I have looked into the store I have been turned off going in, all the sizes look to be very small, as do the sales assistants, as a woman with curves I would personally feel uncomfortable walking in there to look at clothes.

    I was gifted a sports top from there, and it fell apart after a few washes... expensive and poor quality.

    No idea. I've been in there once or twice but the prices turned me off. It's only exercise gear...you sweat all over it...why would I want to spend so much money on it?!

    All my LJ shirts have fallen apart in a few washes - pretty pathetc for the price, but having said that, their legging/tights are awesome, nice thick lycra blend that really do last literally years! Thier tights are the only thing worth the $ IMO, everything else - meh, the $29 BigW Michelle Bridges stuff is just as good.

    Oh and what also annoys me about LJ is the unrealistically small sizing and the fact they dont have a maternity wear line...

    I went into a LJ store the other day and the sales girl was so nice to me. I tried on almost everything in the shop and walked out with one top that I wasn't really that keen on, just felt that I couldn't leave without buying something! And it was a size large when I would normally be small.
    I also don't get all the hype. I bought some other leggings and tops from abi and joseph which are awesome.

    I really like their crop tops. But they're too expensive. I buy all my sportswear from kmart/target/big w.
