My Hunt For The Perfect Black Leggings
Actually led me to create the PBL. And even though today the perfect black leggings are now available to buy the world over I was walking around my local City Centre the other day shocked to see how many women still had see through cheap leggings on. There is nothing more unflattering, no matter how thin or amazing your bottom is, than being able to see flesh or underwear under your clothes. It is just not stylish.
When I designed the PBL perfect black leggings it was because I could never find a pair that did everything I wanted from, no see through, to fitting me comfortably and properly. I had spent years avoiding ever putting black leggings on my body, until one day I came across a French designer pair in a charity shop and fell completely in love with the quality and comfort of them.
Once the French leggings had been worn to death, I was back to hunting down the perfect black leggings once again and this was an even bigger challenge, as even major High Street brands had by now gone down the “Made in China”, throw away, cheap fashion route. Being tenacious and determined in 2011 I took my old French pair to a cotton knitter in the Midlands and after 18 months in development I managed to source the same fabric locally, then with a few design changes my very own high quality, comfortable designer black leggings, that fit up to a size to 22, for all women everywhere went into production. The rest is history.
