Elastic Is Your New Best Friend

Stay Comfortable, and Find the Right Size for You

With remote work and shifting lifestyles on the rise, comfort and style go hand-in-hand more than ever now. So it’s no surprise that people everywhere are ditching the structured, form-fitting clothes that they take off as soon as they’re home. Instead, they’re learning to fully embrace the benefits of elastic waist pants and dresses.

Whether you work from home, travel a lot, or struggle with your weight, elastic can help you out in more ways than one. And as long as you wear the right size for your shape, it’ll give you a versatile wardrobe that lasts for years.

Elastic Is a Wonderful Thing…

Not long ago, elastic was just for sweatpants, leggings, and other forms of loungewear. You wouldn’t dare add too much stretch to work or evening wear, as it was considered cheap. But in recent years, the fashion industry has begun to embrace different body types and realized that style doesn’t have to be restrictive.

Today, global brands and small designers alike give plenty of elastic waist pants, dresses, and even tops to choose from. As a result, women everywhere can look their best and find more styles that work for them. Plus, the added stretch has plenty of amazing benefits — it’s easier to move around in, is less likely to rip, and can still fit even as your body changes.

…As Long as You Wear the Right Size

Still, even the most comfortable styles are no good if you don’t buy the right size for your body type. Stretchy clothes are wonderful, but you should never pull elastic to the maximum whenever you wear it. Not only does this make for an uncomfortable fit, but you’ll ruin the material — and waste money — over time.

Always purchase clothes that fit the body you have, not the one you hope to have when you lose weight. If you’re looking to shed some extra pounds, then your best bet is to buy a style that can be easily altered at a later time. This way, your clothes are just as comfortable right now as they will after your weight-loss journey.

Introducing… the 14-Hour Pants

To meet the ever-changing needs of our clients, AYSHA NY has also embraced elastic with our brand new 14-Hour Pants. Unlike average denim jeans or work trousers, you’ll actually want to keep these on all day long.

We designed these to be the perfect cross between leggings and dress pants. The sleek black fabric, top-stitching, and metallic zippers are ideal for professional settings. Yet thanks to the hidden elastic waistline, you can comfortably wear them throughout the year even on days off.

Furthermore, their simple design also makes these pants one of the most versatile items you’ll ever own. Pair them with any of your best dress shirts, and add a structured blazer for last-minute meetings. And on casual days, dress them down with a basic t-shirt and cover-up to run errands without feeling restricted.

Just like work and casual-wear, your evening looks should also prioritize comfort. When you’re standing or sitting for long periods of time, your outfit needs to be able to move and shift with you throughout the night. And that’s exactly what AYSHA NY had in mind when we created our best-selling Addison Dress.

This design is already ideal for a wide range of body types, thanks to its loose fabric and empire waistline. But by adding elastic to the waist, sleeves, and off-the shoulder neckline, we’re helping you create many different looks throughout the year. This way you can step out looking as fabulous as you feel, even as your body shifts and changes.

Adjust the neckline and push up the sleeves to make it more modest or flirty, and add a belt for a more structured look. And thanks to its neutral color and minimal pattern, you can pair it with almost any jewelry or footwear of your choice.
