I ordered some of the new stock from affordable vintage-inspired brand Lindybop, including the 'Divine' rockabilly top in black, and the 'Bethan' ankle-grazer trousers in pin-spot. I wasn't convinced that either would fit, as I have had a bit of hit and miss with Lindybop in the past (read all about it in my post 'Lindybop Dresses: Size and Fit'), but I thought I'd give them a go. Read on to find out about the fit and quality, and whether I'd recommend them.
First of all, the top. It's a nice quality jersey with a bit of stretch, and it fits true to size. The length is long enough to tuck into skirts, but not as annoyingly long as most high-street tops. I think that it sits a little oddly on me, perhaps because my shoulders might be broader than most, so you don't really get the off-the-shoulder look that is perhaps intended. It's so-so, therefore my verdict is to return it.
Next up is the trousers. They're a lightweight cotton, with a tad stretch, but they fit true to size. They fasten with a side-zip and so work brilliantly for me. They are not true high-waisters, but they sit much higher than high-street trousers, and they don't have pockets. I think far too many trousers are ruined by pockets, they can spoil the whole silhouette and make one appear to have 'saddlebags'. I found the length perfect for my 33" inside leg, they perhaps are a tad high to graze my ankles, but the length works for me nicely. There's enough room for muscular thighs, and the cut doesn't go too slim on the calves, which can look a bit top-heavy. I'm impressed - my verdict is to keep them!
The 'Bethan' trousers are £24.99 and also come in leopard print, black, navy, red and denim. The 'Divine' top is £14.99 and only seems to come in black presently.
Do let me know if you end up trying either of them!
