The Jeans Struggle

If you’re like me- Jean shopping feels IMPOSSIBLE. As a young adult, I just want a couple pairs of flattering jeans that don’t gape at the waist and hug my curves in the right places. Is that too much to ask??

I’ve tried SO many jeans. As a young teen, I wore a lot of old navy jeans, which worked fine, but were often weirdly too long (shocking since I’m 5’9″ with long legs) and wore out quickly. I wore a lot of Calvin Klein. My favorite boot cut jeans are from there. But they’re actually skinny jeans… they just fit boot cut. The waist also had to be taken in. This is the case for almost all my jeans and shorts. I tried PZI Jeans, which are a hot recommendation for curvy women these days… and I like them, but they’re very thick denim and are never really “skinny jeans”. On a 30-year-old who wears heels, I could see these being great. I tried cheap Vibrant High Waisted Amazon.com skinnies. They’re great, but like the Calvins, I need the waist taken in. They’re also pretty cheap and flimsy.

So what works? My favorite black skinny jeans are the Joni (rebranded as Moto) Topshop jeans. I’ve bought I think 4 pairs over the years. They’re fantastic. Great stretch, high waisted to the proper amount, solid lifetime, they do wear out and sometimes tear in between the thighs. This is after a lot of use though.

I’ve also liked American Eagle jeans but never bought any. I’ve also been meaning to try Fashion Nova pants, which are widely loved. Recently I just ordered CUSTOM Levis shorts so I don’t have to do it myself (lol) and I’m hoping those go over well. We’ll see!

Let me know if you have any recommendations or questions about jeans!
