Can certain types of clothing damage a woman's health?

I never thought you should sacrifice comfort while being fashionable, when you don't really have to.

Well, I do sometimes wear tight pants, skirts and dresses (still nice and comfy materials though) that are believed to restrict circulation and blood flow. However, I strongly believe it all depends on the fabric choice, its breathability, weight, flexibility and garment fit.

They say, skinny jeans, pencil skirts, coats with large hoods, over-size bags, high heels... are believed to be most popular choices that could have negative effect on the body. However, eveything in moderation, I would say! And of course, it depends on how often and how long you are wearing those pieces for.

Even with these potential issues, you can still remain fashion-forward without harming your body.

Fabric Choice:

As a litle girl, I was overly sensitive to tactile input (I had a bit of a Sensory Processing Disorder, I guess) and as an adult I am still very particular about the materials that the clothing I create and wear is made of. If it doesn't feel good on my skin, I know I will never wear it, therefore I would not want to sell it either.

Fabrics are my passion and a big part of my creating process. They have to look pretty, but also be comfortable and of good quality, perfect weight and flexibility. Also, I will choose blends with natural polymers whenever I can, because they give you that amazing comfort, but still maintain the strength of a man-made fiber.

Long story short, always pay attention to the type of fabrics while shopping. Even a simple piece made out of beautiful and healthy fabrics can make you feel like a million bucks!

Garment Fit and Your Posture:

Garment fit is another important point that can very much affect your posture, comfort levels, as well as physical and mental health.

I still remember my mom consistently reminding me to "stand up straight, pull my stomach in and shoudlers back!" Not only for adequate back support, healthier spine and muscles, but posture is also known to affect your confidence levels. Proper posture will make your breathing easier and deeper, improve circulation and digestion, allow muscles to work more efficiently preventing muscle fatigue, but also very, very important is that it will boost your self-confidence!

So, all these points I keep in mind when engineering a garment, whether I am working on performance outfits or ready-to-wear. 

One of the pieces I created with the purpose of having function, comfort, improving posture and adding to confidence levels are the Noka Posh Perfect Pants.

As I am researching and reading about different Salsa Congresses and Festivals, I am finding all of these beautiful places around the world organizing such a great event. Now, I have a rearranged list of places for my future travels!

I go to these festivals mainly to work, but get to dance some. Anyways, the vibes are awesome and I always have a great time meeting people from everywhere, whom (the best part is!!!) I get to dress for different dance events and parties around the globe!

This year, I was supposed to be in Croatia during Salsa Beach Splash in Sibenik. However, my non-dancing (but very supportive) husband badly hurt his foot, and unfortunately we ended up postponing our trip.

This country alone has four different big salsa events (usually in June and July), and they are all back to back, so once you are there, you can take part in all of them. 

- Summer Sensual Days Opatija, Croatia

- Summer Sensual Days Rovinj, Croatia

- Croatian Summer Salsa Festival, Rovinj, Croatia

- Salsa Beach Splash, Sibenik, Croatia

I spent a third of my childhood at the Croatian coast. It is a very beautiful country, you should plan to go visit and dance there!

Salsa All Around The World

And as you already know, Salsa events go all the way from January thru November! From parties, festivals to cruises!

Here is some more info on all of these events:

SalsaCircut and SalsaDanceCongress

I heard that Berlin Salsa Congress (October 5-7) is one of the biggest and most influential Salsa festivals in Europe and the whole world.

I have also heard cool things about the Moscow Salsa & Kizomba Festival. I would love to visit one day!

What To Wear?

For my dear ladies only! 

I know that attire for any of these parties is important to you, so please see below!

I love the fashion of 2018! Ruffles have always been a favorite trend of mine. They create action, flow and add drama to the overall look. It is inevitable that you will end up shaking your ruffles on the dance floor. They just make you move!

Flirty hems and romantic ripples... They are so chic and ladylike! Soft or heavy, positioned at hemlines, cross-body, neckline or off-shoulder. There really is a perfect ruffle for everyone.

Even though my creations have always been more about the timeless style, then they are about the trends, I love following and incorporating modern elements into my pieces, whether I am designing ready-to-wear or stage attire for my lovely customers.

Then adding some bright color accents (sunny yellow is huge this summer!), sometimes a little bit of bling, and I am just so excited!

 

FRINGE

Fringe is another hit this summer.

I found this cool information in British Vogue stating that throughout history, everyone from the ancient Greeks to Marilyn Monroe has had a fling with fringing and tassles. Hera (Greek goddess of women who rules over Mount Olympus as queen of the gods) wears tassled belt that is said to shine and cause excitement.

Then in the 50's Marilyn Monroe was wearing a black dress with a plunging neckline and tassled hem while playing her ukulele in "Some Like It Hot".

I am so glad these two trends are happening now!

Even if you are not ready for a full-on fringe, you can start by adding a tassled or fringed accessory to your outfit. Fringe details just give that refined, retro look.

Or if you are ready for more elaborate creations with layers of fringing that bring movement to stylish pieces.

 

We currently have a few styles with ruffles and fringe details with very limited sizes and pieces in stock left, that are great for social dancing or just any summer parties. They will give you confidence and attitude that will just make you move and dance your night away!

I am sure you are all noticing that health and wellness has become the new status symbol. So many people are interested in some form of fitness now, which is a very good thing! Well then, I say we may as well be sweating in style!

Active Fashion is putting together the formerly separate worlds of fitness apparel and high fashion - sports and fitness inspired clothing.

To me as a designer, it makes total sense to be coming up with new solutions, as many women are racing from the conference rooms to their dance, zumba or spin classes.

Importance of Clothing in Exercise 

Although exercising can be daunting, stylish active-wear gives us that extra motivation needed to start. There is evidence that what we wear really does affect us psychologically. There is even a term for it - "Enclothed Cognition". Yes, seriously! How cool is that?!

Slight Cultural Shift

There is also a shift in terms of culturally how people spend their money today. It is not even so much about what Prada or Gucci bag you're carrying, it is now about what original active brand one is wearing.

So, even if you are not a fitness freak, you are going to want to dress like one.

First, because it is comfortable and you still feel good whether or not you're working out, and second, these pieces are becoming more and more part of the overall fashion world.

Also, we are seeing previously taboo things like sneakers on the runway at Luis Vuitton and Chanel shows in Paris.

Importance of Comfort

The need for everyday comfort is very important in the modern world. Us women are busier then ever before, but thankfully we are learning the art of balance. Whether it is dancing (my favorite!), rollerblading (another personal fave!), tennis (love it too!), running, walking... you name it! Any of these types of movement and activities add up. And they all count!

You show up to your barre or yoga class, then off to work, pick up kids... So many of us swear by clothing that can transition from workouts to the rest of our lives.

I have never believed you should sacrifice comfort while being fashionable anyways, when you don't really have to. I move a lot and I am more comfortable wearing flexible and breathable pieces.

So, being the way I am and working in the fashion industry, this has been very exciting to me!

One of the styles that I wear EVERYWHERE are these Noka Posh Perfect Pants with Tummy control. Also, I have been receiving such amazing feedback, and my current customers telling me how much they love their look, feel and versatility. Very classy style! Made locally in the USA!

In my travels and contact with women around the country, I find that we all struggle with finding the perfect pants for our different lifestyles, body types, and personal sense of fashion. The women I have spoken with seem to have a few needs in common that helped me to really understand why this is so hard.

    1.  We Need Comfortable Pants

Have you ever bought a pair of pants that looked super cute and seemed to fit right when you tried them on, but then they were just so uncomfortable when you tried doing anything in them? This is a common issue among women today. Why sacrifice comfort to look great?

    2.  We Need Stretchy Fabric

Stretchy fabrics generally provide comfort and fit. Fabrics that feel like you are not wearing a thing, yet do not cost you fashion points for wearing those cozy garments. I prefer fiber blends derived from natural chain of polymers like Rayon and Viscose with small percentage of Nylon and Spandex. The softness and breathability of natural fibers along with flexibility and durability of Spandex make for a great combination for fabric that is both extremely comfortable and has great elasticity... Sorry, don't get me started...I can talk about fabrics forever!

    3.  We Need to Hide Our Tummies

Luckily, there are things we can do to hide that belly, so that it doesn't get in our way of looking fabulously stylish. Mid-rise pants with "Tummy Control" special interfacing inside the waistband is a great solution! Then, of course there are the cuts that are slightly flared at the bottom, which helps balance things out and elongate the legs.

   4.  Can We Please Have a Pocket?

An invisible pocket inside the waistband is just what the doctor ordered! My customers asked me to add the pocket, mainly for when they travel and go dancing at events or clubs, to safely hold valuables such as credit card or ID. I wanted this pocket to be hidden, so it is conveniently inside the waistband with a small flap, to hold things firmly in place.

   5.  We Want Products Made in the USA

You see, buying products in America is not just a matter of national pride, but as a small business owner myself, I feel the need to support my local economy. I realize that it is tempting to buy foreign-made products, as they are almost always cheaper. However, they are cheaper because they are made in the countries where it is legal to pay slave labor wages. And I personally feel much better not contributing to businesses that exploit people. We should support each other to help create an environment where all people thrive and are not exploited. 

   6.  We Want Sizes That Suit Our Bodies

As a designer, I have been striving to create styles that look good on different body types. You don't need six-pack abs to look good, just well-designed garment and the correct size. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable wearing your clothes and carry yourself with confidence.

So, this is why I created the Perfect Pants...

I combined all of those needs to come up with Perfect Pants that any woman could wear and that fulfilled our basic needs. The result are pants that:

  • They are amazingly comfortable
  • Are made of breathable Rayon blend pre-shrunk fabric
  • Have a built-in tummy control waistband
  • Have an invisible pocket inside the waistband
  • Are designed and crafted in the U.S.A
  • Come in sizes from 0-16

Since I began selling them, I have received such an AMAZING feedback, and I can't wait to get them onto the bodies of more women like me. To learn more about the Perfect Pants CLICK HERE!
