PACT Clothing Review
PACT clothing wants the best for everyone. Whether it’s the consumer wearing the comfiest and healthiest clothing around, or ensuring the workings are in the very best working situations. They source the best organic materials, have workers assemble products in Fair Trade Certified work environments, and come out with soft, comfortable clothes for the whole family.
They’re Serious When it Comes to Certifying
When it comes to dressing, I’m usually all about the comfy that I can get by wearing in public. The Lightweight Loung Tee and Black Stretch-Fit Flare Pants from PACT are both perfect. I love how the tee sits with it’s scooped neckline and drop short sleeves. It is lightweight and breathable, but it doesn’t get chilly. The pants are fitted through the upper leg and flare out at the bottom. They do indeed stretch plenty though and are comfy and not tight. My only complaint, as s short woman, is they are VERY long. I’m used to hemming up my pants (or wearing them out) but we’re talking 5-6″ of extra length here. It’s perfectly fine for around the house so long as I don’t step on my hem and slip on the laminate floor. Out and about they get pretty dirty if I don’t hem them up.
Overall though, they are both very comfy pieces and I try to get away wearing them a couple of lazy days in a row before washing them. Even for cotton I did not notice too much shrinking after the initial washes. I do love wearing these!
PACT has three different dress styles for the ladies. Maxi dresses are my favorite since I can dress them up or down. I found a wide belt to wear with this one and cinch it in. I keep the belt high for an empire waist or lower at my natural waist depending on the desired look. The cotton dress is soft without too much stretch. It gives just enough, but it’s what I would consider “stretchy.” It is tapered at the waist so if you like a looser fit, go up a size. Otherwise, I found it fits pretty true to size. I like that it wasn’t too long, and is full length, with a slit up the back to just above the knee.
Sleeveless and racerback, it allows for casual wear on its own or for a nicer top over it. I feel like it fits me in all the right places and makes me feel good wearing it, despite the leftover baby belly. It’s fun, comfy, and I can wear it anywhere.
I picked up their newer Featherweight Slouchy Sweatshirt in Olive Green. They also have 3 other styles that made it difficult to choose from. This pullover sweatshirt really is lightweight, soft, and comfortable. It’s warm enough to keep the chill out without feeling bulky at all. It’s perfect to wear over tops running errands, over the maxi dress, or just for lounging around on a colder day.
I always need new underwear so I picked up a Women’s Plum/Lilac Lace-Waist Brief Two-Pack to try these. I usually find cotton undies are stretchy or stiff with an uncomfortable hem and seams. NOT so with these! They are light and breathable for the skin and oh so soft. They are as comfortable as my silky seamless “no-show” panties. They also have bralettes that I’m very tempted to try now that I know how comfy these are!
PACT also makes clothes for babies and kids. What can be better for you baby than organic fair-trade cotton clothes? I got a 3 pack of tees for my little girl. They are as soft as my clothes and fit well. She loves the purple! There is a mini logo that is stamped on the back of the neck which is discrete but adds a cute touch. They also have bodysuits, pants, sleepers, PJs, bibs, socks and more. They make great staple pieces for your child’s wardrobe with a couple of cute specialty pieces.
We Love Cotton
Cotton is such a great material. It can be warm and lightweight. It’s a naturally breathable fiber your skin loves. PACT has made cotton soft and comfortable, as well as fashionable. They have a new top out that I have my eye on and hope to get soon. They have all the basics for men, women, and children. Plus it feels good knowing I’m buying from a company that guarantees that it is organic and fair-trade.
