Many months back Tina Ketchie Stearns contacted me, asking if I would try her great new product, “Go Free Pants”. I was intrigued, to say the least. Several weeks and pant sizes later, my Go Free pants arrived. I chose the 5- Pocket Jean in Black. I was thrilled to get them and tried them on immediately. Here is what Tina says about how and why Go Free pants came to be:
“I was watching The Today Show while they were interviewing a female doctor about women’s health issues including postpartum depression, breast cancer and heart disease. Regarding bladder and yeast infections, the doctor said, “The less women wear down there, the better.” My own mother had told me that for years. About a week later, I was at our monthly “Girls Night Out”, and I told my friends what the doctor on the Today Show had said. That’s when several of my girl friends admitted that they go “commando” (no underwear). I had no idea! A few of the girls said they wear thongs to get rid of panty lines. I was a “granny pant” girl! My friends are all lovely ladies of every shape and size, but not what I imagined a thong or commando type to be. They encouraged me to try it, so I did.”
That was really the start of this new concept in pants. You’ve heard of and probably seen the “camel toe” effect…a pant that is too tight and rides up the middle of a ladies’ privates. NOT a flattering look! The way the Go Free pants are constructed is really unique, because there is no middle seam, rather a sewn in “panel” that is comfortable and flattering! The great thing about this pant is that undergarments are optional, you can wear them if you want and don’t need to if you choose. Tina’s success is catching on and she gave many pairs of Go Free pants away to celebrities at the Oscar Week Suite Hilton Beverly Hills event she attended in February, and got fabulous reviews.
Now, what about the pants, you ask??? I loved wearing these pants! First of all, the fabric is a cotton twill with stretch…translation, they are SOOOOO comfortable. No more dying to get out of your pants and into your sweats when you get home. The fabric is light enough for summer, and heavy enough for winter (at least in the San Francisco bay area). They don’t lose their shape as the day goes on, and they really “breathe” down there! The only issue I had was that the length is not very long. I am 5’5” and they would have been short on someone taller. They come in a 32” inseam and 29” for petites. One of the best selling points of these pants is that they retail for $74-$84, a really affordable price point! Even better, Go Free pants donates a portion of proceeds to non-profits like Hospice and cancer research…a win/win all around!
