There’s something about the fit and look of the perfect pair of jeans – on yourself or someone else – that just makes you feel so good (perving or otherwise). And you can never have too many pairs of jeans. A wardrobe staple if ever there was one.
The most comfortable pair of jeans I had? Second hand 501’s. Pre loved so already worn and soft, and oh so comfortable.
Gone are the days where you walk into a shop and pick out your size and that’s it.
There is something for everyone depending on what you like, and for women the choices keep going. Want to hold in your gut or enbrace those womanly curves, there’s a pair for that. Slim, straight, skinny or bootleg, low, mid and high rise, colours range from the palest blue to the darkest navy and black.
How hard is it? Way too hard. Although for me this week. Not that bad after all.
I wasn’t planning on buying a pair of jeans, but simply wandering aimlessly through shops because I could. But with a friendly and very helpful sales assistant, it was hard to not to.
She laughed when I said there were too many choices. But then asked what it was I liked, colour (light to med blue), leg (straight or bootleg), where it sat on my hips (midrise) and size (not telling).
I got two styles. One was…too small somehow while the other fit nicely (a little on the big size).
Oh, ok, can I have these next size down in these. That’s so much better.
Not since 10 years ago have I had a pair of jeans that fit so nicely, look good and make me feel good.
It seems the curve embracer’s fit my shape nicely enough and the length is perfect. Down to my heel. I like a long leg.
I am definitely getting another one of these… now should I wait another month or so and see if I can get the next size down again…?
