4 new pant fits from Addition Elle designed for different body silhouettes

Stores host national Pant Fit Clinic Week, August 22-29, 2010

MONTREAL, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - They fit like the most comfortable pair of gloves - hugging curves in the best possible way, and gloriously comfortable from rise to waist and thigh to knee - the new perfect fitting pants from Addition Elle.

If you are a frustrated plus size shopper - always looking for pants that fit in all the right places, but never finding exactly what you are looking for -- then Addition Elle has the solution to your search. Starting this August, Addition Elle stores can offer you four unique and distinctive pant fits in both casual and career styles in a variety of fabrications.

Are you rounded at the top with an undefined waist, narrow hips and thighs, and slender legs? Then the 'slim' fit is right for you. If you are larger at the bottom with a well-defined waistline and proportionately narrow shoulders, try the 'curvy' fit. If your waist is not that much smaller than your hips, then the 'shaped' fit is made with you in mind. And if you can wear just about any style and shape of pant, then the 'versatile' fit is the one to try - featuring stretch for comfort, and a pull-on, flat elastic waistband that's easy to wear whether worn close to the body, relaxed or loose fitting. For anyone wanting a really streamlined silhouette, look for one of the new fit styles that has the built-in 'lose-an-inch' option - a lightweight, breathable 'Power Net Panel' which provides all-round body shape, slims and flatters. You can lose an inch without having to shed a pound!

Excited to have customers try out the new pant fits for themselves, Addition Elle will be holding a national 'Pant Fit Clinic Week', August 22nd to August 29th (inclusive), and offering a $20 discount on all the new pant fit styles. Sales associates at every branch across Canada have been fully trained to help customers find just the right and most flattering fit for their individual body shapes.

"This is a completely innovative new approach to how we've re-vamped and re-launched our pant program for fall," says Kerry Mitchell, president of Addition Elle. "Part of what we do every day is to meet our customers' needs and we are sure that these new pant fit options will be greeted with great enthusiasm. Finding a fabulous fitting pair of pants is a top priority for most women and we are confident that having invested the time to research the challenge, we have now found the key to their satisfaction."

The new fit program is the result of 18 months intensive research completed by Addition Elle after taking stock of customers' concerns, frustrations and disappointments. Findings showed that 7 out of 10 customers were dissatisfied when shopping for a good fitting and flattering pair of jeans or pants, and that key factors to consider when addressing a variety of body shapes are the bust to waist and lower hip to waist differentials. These results became the basis for the development of the four new pant fits, particularly the waist to hip measurement which is the primary dimension that makes the difference in finding a perfect fitting pair of pants.

A division of Reitmans (Canada) Limited, Addition Elle's mission is to celebrate the "body confidence" of its plus-sized shoppers with an exciting array of casual to career fashions featured in its 130 locations across Canada. In addition to superb collections of work and weekend styles, Addition Elle carries a beautiful selection of intimate apparel, sleepwear, activewear, outerwear, and accessories designed to address all of its customers' lifestyle needs. Addition Elle fashions can be purchased in-store or online at additionelle.com.
