After a year of ballet and tap lessons, my daughter decided to try jazz dance. Out went the tutu and leotard and in came the three quarter black leggings. The only problem was that the leggings were made of a thin cotton and didn’t seem very substantial.
I was keen for my daughter to try a Twiga Clothing 3/4 length Chloe crop pant.
What you Receive
The black 3/4 length Chloe pants arrived ready to be worn. Purple stripes and my daughter’s name are printed on a white band. This band is connected to the black legs of the pants. My daughter’s name appears four times on each side of the band. The lettering is very crisp and is a good size.
This Made-in-Canada Chloe pant is made out of 88% Nylon and 12% Lycra supplex. The weight is heavy enough to make the fabric feel substantial and soft without feeling too thick or bulky. Twiga Clothing uses a 4-way stretch fabric that wicks moisture, moves and holds its shape. The stitching on the side of the waistband and on the hems of the pant is done with a 3-needle cover stitch.
Using the Chloe Twiga Pants
I thought my six year old daughter might be a little resistant to trying the new pants. This is mostly because the band is different than what anyone else in her class is wearing.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how easily she took to the new pants. She tells me that they are comfortable to wear, not too tight on the waist band and she can move easily in them. She was also very happy to see her name on the pants. Since my daughter likes to draw fashion designs, I was happy to see that she liked the idea of having a band with her name on it.
I chose the 3/4 length pant for my daughter because I assumed that she might get hot while she is dancing for an hour. A little bit of air around her ankles would help to regulate her temperature. But the fabric is heavy enough that she isn’t cold when she starts her dance class.
When you are six, you don’t tend to sweat like you would when you are a pre-teen or a teenager. I can see that these pants would be good for older dancers who need fabric that breathes well and wicks away moisture.
My daughter is happy with her Chloe Twiga pants and I’m glad that she has a substantial pair of pants for her dance class. To be honest, I would even like wearing this type of pant around the house. Not because I’m dancing around (!) but because I like to feel comfortable. And I can imagine many women would wear a pair of Twiga pants when they are out and about.
The founder of Toronto-based Twiga Clothing was inspired by his extended family members’ love of sports clothing for children, so he started Twiga Clothing. The company’s goal is to create “bespoke athletic gear to train, dance, and live in.”
