Ulla-Pants Give-away!



Pants emit a very sexy, slightly masculine, wholly durable sensibility. They are reflective of the demeanor of a strong and stylish woman. Frida Giannini

Ulla Popken will give away a pair of pants, listed below, to the first ten customers who comment here, on our blog. All we ask is that you send a corresponding email to me (babehope1@gmail.com) with your selection, size, and mailing address and agree to submit a review of the product within 30 days.

Pants are a highly personal part of developing a wardrobe that really works. That is why I often suggest that my clients start with bottoms and then work their way up in developing outfits. Personally, I look for sleek, elongating comfort in pants.

Five Ulla Styles – Which ones are right for you?

  • Feel soft and pretty…

and reduce visual weight with our Drawstring Hem Capri (12831)

  • Elongate your silhouette…

with a straight shape (pair with tonal footwear) such as our

Matte Jersey Straight Leg Pants (02635)

  • Look lean and well-tailored…

and forget about wrinkles with our Essential Pencil Leg Pants (64822)

  • Seek comfort and sophistication…

and get a flattering drape with our Wide-leg Stretch Knits Pants (91624)

  • Channel strong and stylish…

and balance full hips with our boot-cut Jeans (regular wash available) (11841)

I’d love to hear what you look for in pants and if you agree or disagree with the Giannini quote (above) or how you’d tweak it!

Babe

Feel good in what you wear!

I love Ulla Popken clothes! Thank you!

alicyn said...

In pants, I definitely look for the wide leg style & something that requires no ironing. The stretch knit wide leg pants would be perfect!

K. Lauraka said...

I love the quality of your clothes!

Marybeth Lavrakas said...

I love the quality of your clothes!

Laurie McConnell said...

Yes! I feel wearing pants is reflective of the demeanor of a strong (confident) and stylish woman. A bit masculine? Yes, sometimes, but also soft, wide-legged pants can be the ultimate in femininity! When wearing pants I'm comfortable, I'm fashionable, I'm ME!

I love the part of the Giannini quote about pants reflecting a strong, stylish woman! I think the right pants can set the tone for your whole look. I personally look for pants that are soft and flowing but not bulky, the drawstring leg capris look right up my alley!

hopey said...

Yay, pants! Pants are so much more sensible than skirts. Then again, I've always been a bit of a tomboy.

Nancy said...

Love Ulla Popken stuff! No doubt that these will be great too!

Nancy said...

I don't know if I agree with the comment or not, but I definitely know I feel better when I have on a pair of well fitting pants. I look for a pant that fits to my waist, none of that hip hugger stuff for me - I leave that to the teenagers! As well as being 6 feet tall, I need length. I know my shorter friends all complain about to much length, but ladies, it is so much simpler to hem pants then to lengthen them when there is no fabric to lengthen with! I am looking at the jeans!

MoldaviteSofa said...

Frida's right - the right pants present a great look on a woman. Easy, confident, and ready to stride into any situation!


Out of the Five Ulla Styles – I look best in either the Matte Jersey Straight Leg Pants or Wide-leg Stretch Knits Pants. Both work for my body type and my office!

Karen said...

Love the Drawstring Hem Capri Pants. So comfortable and can dress up or dress down. So great.

Karen said...

The drawstring hem Capri pants are the best. They are so comfortable, you can wear them whenever and you can dress them up and down.

Suzanne said...

I like jeans I can wear to work and for play so the Bootcut is perfect for me. I always opt for wide leg pants as it is a dress up or down style.

Karen said...

Love the Capri style. You can dress them up or down and they are so comfortable.

Pants can be very sexy depending on the drape and the perfect top.

Wide legs and jersey
Annie pants for Ulla Pants
Too late? I hope not!

Haiku makes everything sound more classy, like Ulla styles.

Sharon C. said...

I purchase the majority of my clothes from Ulla Popken. They are of good quality and last seemingly forever without looking like you've been wearing them forever.

I understand that because I didn't comment directly at the blog site I'm out of the loop for a pair of pants, but that's okay. Just wanted to let you know how much I like Ulla.

Babe Hope said...

Gotcha - Sharon C. - you're in!

Jenny said...

Hi Babe:
I agree with the quote - pants can be sexy. I think you could take out the word masculine and use "bold"!
I would love to receive a pair of capri pants and I will write a review on the blog as soon as I wear them!

Babe Hope said...

Ladies,
We've had such a quick and wonderful response!

We will extend the Give-away to 10 more customers!!!!!!!!!!

Marina said...

Great fit and style!
Love the whole line of clothes!

I am excited to try Ulla Popken's Drawstring Hem Capri Pants.
Thank you

Carol in Kapolie - I didn't think for years that it was "appropriate" for my size and my age to wear jeans! I have learned to love to wear jeans and I feel young in then. They are flattering, very versitile and always comfortable.

Anonymous said...

I wish everyone the best. Love the community, and all the info. Thanks :)

Babe Hope said...

Hi Carol in Kapolie!

I know what you mean. Jeans, when well cut, can be as flattering as slacks and (make me) feel ageless.

Please email me at babehope1@gmail.com with your info. (selection, size and mailing address)

Babe Hope said...

Hi Ladies!
In addition to commenting here, please be sure to send me your info (selection, size and mailing address.)

You're good to go if you've received an email back from me (babehope1@gmail.com). If you haven't heard back from me, please email me again.

Email has been a little funky - stuff going to my spam folder...

I want to be sure you get your prize!

Elizabeth M. said...

I love the loose fit of most of Ulla's pants. I prefer the wide leg style and a iron-free fabric. Thanks for the quality and style, 2 qualities hard to find in Plus Size clothing.

Lovie said...

I've had a shirt/jacket from Ulla Popken for almost 20 years(it seems) that I still wear--it's timeless and stylish and wonderful!
I think the pants are styled just for us women with curves.

Susan Philippi said...

I discovered Ulla a few years ago and was excited to find large lady clothes that were stylish, upto date and well made. No frumpy old-lady styles or colors. I like the wide leg look, it is flattering and comfortable. I have to wear compression hose that stick to tighter legs. The fabrics are great, too. SPhilippi

Babe Hope said...

Hi Lovie,
I've been using "timeless" and "ageless" as a yardstick of quality a lot lately too!

cbk said...

I like a wide leg pant to dress up or down, so the wide leg knit stretch pants would be my choice!

ann said...

I like the draw string waist.I can wear a smaller size to fit me if the waist gives. Also lOVE the fuller leg.I feel pants are more confortable. I buy Ulla when I can
afford the article much better made. I wait for sale and free shipping. Like all fabrics, can wear for all events. Don't care for stretch fabric.

I love that Ulla Popken carries almost everything. (Except for polyester knits - I remember older, large women wearing that when I was young. YUCK!)

Ulla carries good quality, fantastic styles in clothes that fit. Pants - I get all my pants/slacks from Ulla now.

I look for straight or slightly narrowed legs, elastic waist (yeah can't stand a waist that's too tight), an easy-care fabric. Those can all be found at Ulla Popken.

Melanie H said...

I agree that the pants a woman wears sets the tone for the entire outfit. You see how you fit and how you feel in them and then choose a loose, cool gypsy blouse and a pair of Jesus sandals:) Awesome casual night out with friends!

I've lost 145 lbs this past year AND I'M STILL WEARING ULLA!!! Woo hoo. I'd like to request pants for my Mama!!! I'll send an email! I love Ulla clothing because I feel free and can be the hippy I have always been!! Thank u!! <3 Allie Raye

I know I'm *waaaay* late for the party, but just had to leave a comment about Ulla pants. I always get compliments when I wear my Ulla ensembles, and people always want to know where I got my outfit. U.P. clothing makes me feel very confident and sexy. The cut and drape of the fabrics, and the beautiful embellishments on the blouses are so unique. I like that the straight cut pants don't have the extra bags at the hips like most pants seem to. And, I love that they have pockets!!!! And that they are well made. They aren't going to fall apart after the second washing.

Most of all, I love that I can put on a pair of pants that fit my body and that I feel good in them. I feel sleek and slinky, or I feel ready to tackle playing on the floor with the kids (depending on the outfit) but most of all, I know I look good while I'm doing it, because it's Ulla.

Babe Hope said...

Hey ComicGeekChick,

What can I say?

Your comment makes a lot of the stuff/work done behind the scenes so worthwhile. There are people out there, who you'll get to meet in a series of Behind the Scenes, U.P. Life videos, over the next 3 months, who really care if they get it right.

A comment like that is never too late. On behalf of my colleagues, I want to thank you with a pair of one of the pants mentioned in the post. Please email me at babehope1@gmail.com and I'll hook you up.

Truly, THANK YOU for your kind words! You've made a lot of people at Ulla very happy.

Jenny said...

I have been wearing my brown capris as much as I can! They are so comfortable. They wash really well and I have not ironed them! I am looking forward to ordering them in cherry red and wearing them with a black top! Thanks so much!

Laurie said...

Bootcut Jeans Review from Laurie M.
11841 Boot Leg Jeans-
Thanks for these jeans! Usually new jeans are stiff and they need several washings before they are comfortable. Not these...they arrived feeling soft, like old friends, like my favorite jeans that I wear every weekend! Actually they now are my favorite jeans! They are proportioned well and don't ride up, slip down, or get caught up in embarrassing places (if you get my drift). When I need a new pair of jeans I won't have to spend endless, frustrating hours shopping, I'll just click
Ulla Popken: Boot Leg Jeans.

Suzanne said...

From Suzanne: Review of Boot-cut Jeans:
The jeans are true to size. Good fit in the legs and a right length.
The weight and color are perfect for all seasons.
The cut allows for a dress up/or down, work or play style.

I often by casual pants that can fit most situations and these jeans certainly do!

Karen said...

Karen's Review of Drawstring Capris:
I received my Drawstring Hem Capri Pants and have to say I think I will need more at the rate I am wearing them. They are extremely comfortable and fit comfortably. The material is great for wash and wear and no fuss. I think the only thing I could suggest is pockets. I am a huge fan of pockets. I will definitely purchase these capris again. I love the red too.

teckiepooh said...

Wow, I read all of the comments on the blog about Ulla Popken's clothes and I'm impressed. I got a catalog in the mail and decided to go online to see if there were any reviews about the clothes. After reading all of the comments I've decided that I have to try something. Not sure what to try but I'm going to figure out my size and start looking. Hate I missed the give away but I do appreciate the ladies for their reviews. It makes me want to try something.

Babe Hope said...

Hi teckiepooh!
I'd love to help you pick something you'll love. Let me know if I can help, we'll go "Ulla-shopping" together!
Best,
Babe

MMWDW said...

Ulla clothes are wonderful!

I was a lucky recipient of a free pair of UP jeans a little bit ago. they looked great as I pulled them from the package. Unfortunately, they had a short rise and did not fit me at the 'waist'. I was totally bummed.

Luckily my BFF is the right size and these jeans fit her perfectly. She is now an Ulla Popken fan!

Thank you for the opportunity to try the jeans!

Melanie Hampton said...

I received a pair of Ulla Popken Hemi drawstring capris- brown in color, and I absolutely love them! The color is rich and vibrant, the fabric is cool and comfortable, and they really do make me look slimmer. I have several gypsy tops I have been able to pair with my capris, and they all look great together. Thanks again :) Melanie Hampton

"I received a pair of these pants as a part of a free promotion. I love these pants. The fit is perfect and the color is fantastic. I ordered brown. I would definitely recommend these to others."
