Hot off the press, another COKANNA Kanbassador opportunity in Size 4(XL). If this is your size then read on.

This one is not a new design. It’s the re-working of a tried and true design, the Joan bamboo trouser. I’ve just re-worked the sizing. The initial fit seemed to be one size off. Customers who wore a Size 4 in the Lynne legging often went down a size in the Joan to a Size 3.

Keep in mind, the Joan is a looser fit with a wider leg but the fit at the waist should be the same as the Lynne legging. So, I hope I have corrected the discrepancy. And, that’s where you come in.

Ideally, I’m looking for a Kanbassador who already has a pair of the Lynne leggings in Size 4(XL). Here’s the size chart (in inches) if you don’t know your size:

Your mission

You’ll get this sample pair of pants and they’re yours to keep. Your mission is to try the pants on and see how they fit. Are they an XL? Then wear them as much as possible. Wear them for all your activities from lounging, to going for walks, to running errands, to working from home…you get the idea. Wash them as many times as you need. It’s recommended to machine wash in cold water and hang to dry.

Report back to me at or 613-863-8893 in one week’s time and tell me what you think. And be honest. Candid but kind feedback is important to me and the design process.

What I need to know

What I specifically need to know is do they fit like an XL? Is the sizing the same as the Lynne legging?

Of course, any other feedback you have is welcome too, good or bad. I value your input. It’s how I continually improve my designs. My clothes are meant for you. Not the other way round.

Your commitment

As a COKANNA Kanbassador, you commit to:

  1. Taking photos of yourself wearing the pants
  2. Agreeing to your photos being posted on my social media accounts and website
  3. Being a brand ambassador and spreading the word. Word-of-mouth buzz is the best way to create awareness for a Canadian woman-owned small business.
