This has been my favourite post in a long time, Emily! I think that will be my denim purchase this year-a pair of awesome high-waisted flares.
I purchase one pair of jeans every few years and like to make sure I purchase something good and versatile and that I can get loads of wear from-your review will help! I think your pound comment was to remind people that this is what you weigh and look like in the jeans-not that you need to weigh pounds or less to where them;. Thanks for keeping it real. It feels good to remember that everyone has their own body and how one thing can look great on one person, it may not do the same for another.
Never before have I found jeans that fit me correctly in both the hips and the waist! One time I got behind on laundry and all my rockstars were dirty and I had to wear one of my old pairs of pants to school. I thought I was going to die. Oh, I agree too! I used to never ever like Old Navy jeans but these rockstars having been carrying me around since I last gave birth 18 months ago. I have them in a 4 and an 8 from just barely post partum and they fit the SAME.
Certainly no fear of getting paint on those! Can I add a totally affordable pair to the list? J crew factory midrise skinnies. And we could be twins: Also, getting the right size I wear a 24 in those-vanity sizing indeed , as you want them to suck you in but at the same be comfy once they stretch out I used to have some beef with my butt, but then I realized the issue was the sagging denim.
Oh to weigh pounds. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just wish I was more self-confident because this post has me feeling very self-conscious now.
Everything looks good on pound people but there are no actual pound people so we have to try and fail constantly to find clothes that work. Definitely walking on glass here, I guess. Trying to figure out which pair I want to invest in.
HUGE fan of them. I wish they had a pair that was not cuffed in that exact same. I have some of the color rockstars too, and yeah they are not the greatest. They are so stretchy and comfy and flattering! Emily, please please please be kinder to yourself and your body. It can be difficult to have perspective when the people you live around are all your size or smaller. It could make you feel lbs is unacceptable in some way.
You rocked all those jeans, Mrs. The affect is cumulative! Love your awesome original content! Also, may I add a note? I loved this review post. You are brave and wonderful!
I have a few pairs of the others you showed but always choose these ones first. Not sure how this was read as body shaming post. I think some people are extra sensitive to the issue of body weight. Just a shout out for Genetic! Thank you for a funny tour of the big bad world of buying jeans. Jeans, clothes in general, are such a personal thing. I always think more expensive is better, but it is not the case if it does not fit correctly. Thank you for making me smile this morning Emily!
I loved this post! I usually get a 27 or I just bought these on sale! I also love the AG skinnies — they are well worth the investment for how good they feel on and how great I think they look on me, at least. Some of your favorites could look unflattering on lots of people and vice versa. Rolling hems is in right now if you like a pair that is too long.
Scrunching kind of ends up looking sloppy or too big sometimes. I definitely have a butt and thighs. But seriously, you know whats my favorite..? Their jeans have a great amount of stretch and perfect for ladies on the more petite side.
I personally just bought 3 pairs of the GAP always skinny jean in multiple colors. The GAP always skinnies fit so effing well and come up to the perfect stomach height. The Loft Modern Skinny jeans.
I am built very similarly to you and both the blue and white fit awesome. I bought them in both the black and distressed wash. I love the fit of loft modern skinny jeans. Loft cords modern skinny last forever, are soft, and are so flattering. This was a very, very brave post, Emily. I see this post was just about finding flattering skinny jeans. Kudos for your courage as it opened up a dialogue on a very controversial topic. Super important for women to remember and keep perspective on this fallacy of weight and body image in our culture and to educate our daughters about this weirdness so their fragile and forming self body images are not harmed by this.
My LA fashionista daughter-in-law who has always worn high end jeans, but then discovered Target jeans, so introduced me to them. They are fabulous…I have skinny, jeggings really flattering and comfortable and boyfriend. I love them all. I am not kidding you, these jeans are legit. GAP revolution skinny jeans. This was a great post.
I love and appreciate your honesty. Thanks for posting this! My fav jeans that I keep buying again and again are randomly from express. They feel like a hug. I used to looove Gap jeans. Then suddenly one day all jeans had so much spandex that they stretch out and start falling down a few hours in. I have learned to buy jeans in a size smaller because of that issue. Love this fun little post and will say that Express has some Skinny jeans Stella I think?
Dark wash, stretchy, perfect! This piece gives me hope that it MIGHT be possible to branch out and find a great-fitting skinny with more structure. Also, yes please do some flares! The most flattering skinny jeans on me are the AG Farrah jeans: These are SO SO comfortable and they hide my post-baby belly really well.
The best part is, because of the high waist, I can get down on the floor and play with my kids without risking showing too much! I LOVE that look and always feel like it comes across super boxy on me. You are getting a lot of mixed feedback, but I love that you are taking risks with your posts. Thanks for such great content in Roc k on mama!
I appreciate that you did not want to make anyone feel bad about herself. I hope you can do the same for yourself! Here is what worked for me: Having a baby girl.
I was forced to deal with lingering body issues, because it hurt my heart to think of my daughter having such critical thoughts of her own body one day.
Lesley, same for me!! Having a daughter and realizing that even as a toddler, she was carefully watching and mimicking everything i did, made me take a close eye to how I loved myself.
Now instead of beating myself up and being critical, I show her that eating well and staying active are more important than fitting a certain pant size. Totally enjoyed this post. Can you please indicate which numbers correlate to the descriptions above? I too am tired of skinny jeans, not being so twiggy myself. Loved this post Emily. You are so genuine and adorable! I never comment but I just wanted to say that I think that you are so wonderful and I love these honest pictures and reviews!
The content about weight etc. Body image is such such such a personal and touchy subject and I so appreciate your honesty! These are both short enough for me and stretchy enough to handle some curves, which is a miracle combination. I love them, I love them, I love them. I can only hope we'll be together forever.
They are a little pricey, but the thick fabric makes them very slimming and they don't fade or stretch. Also, I'm very tall 5'11" so I like that they are always long enough and proportionate for my body. They are definitely an investment worth making. But I found them! These Boden jeans have great stretch without losing shape , they come in long amen!
"I love these because they have some stretch and are high-waisted. So they definitely provide the coverage I want over my ample hips without being too, too tight." - Chanel Parks, Associate Style Editor To buy: Resolution True Skinny High-Rise jeans, $ Meet our all-time favorite jeans! They're ultra soft, slimming, and the fabric never seems to stretch out. It's like some sort of denim magic. Gap outlet has a skinny high rise stretch legging jogging that goes on sale for (sometimes) I have two pairs and they’re great for my postpartum pooch(my lo is 2 months) I hope you take into account how often gap and old navy have 40/50% off sales, I never buy anything full price there and it makes my (temporary)jeans worth it.
