What could possibly be better than slipping into your favorite pair of jeans? Perhaps a soft, cuddly kitten to hold while you are wearing said jeans? Well forget the kitten for now and let’s talk about JEANS!
I don’t know about you, but generally speaking, I’m not crazy about shopping for jeans. It seems that most brands just don’t know how women’s bodies are shaped. It seems they make all their jeans for one body shape and the rest of us just have to make do. Either the waist gaps in the back, they don’t come high enough (or low enough), the thighs are either too tight or too baggy and of course, the length is really hit or miss. Shopping for jeans can be just as scary as swimsuit shopping.
When it comes to denim, it really can seem like no one is listening to the outcry of women about the poor selection and ill fit. Finally someone has heard us though and designed of line of denim for REAL WOMEN!
Target’s new and improved denim is made to fit no matter who you are, what you are feeling, what your style is, what your body shape is or where you are going. Target has a pair just for YOU.
With improved fits, comfortable fabrics, and a style for every body shape, every detail of Target’s new line of denim is made to fit you and your body so you feel like the jeans are really yours.
Think about all the things that prevent you from finding the perfect pair of jeans. I found it surprisingly to learn that 1 in 5 women don’t know what wash or weight of jeans they prefer. That’s crazy! It’s not that you’re indecisive; it’s the lack of style choice for every body shape that limits us to having a real preference.
Some of the things that make it difficult for me to find the perfect pair of jeans is usually my mom-of-3 belly hanging over the top of the jeans, muffin top, large thighs, big butt and jeans are almost always too long for me and need to be hemmed. The struggle is real! It’s no wonder most women resort to wearing yoga pants these days, right?!
Thankfully, I found the PERFECT pair of jeans from Target’s new line of denim. I was sent 4 different styles of jeans to try out for 14 days and I found my perfect fit with the Dark Blue High Rise Jeggings.
High Rise Jeggings
I wore these the most out of the 4 pairs of jeans I trialed. They have the perfect amount of stretch (so they feel like yoga pants), the waist comes up high enough to cover my mom belly and the length was surprisingly perfect for my 5’2″ figure. Everything about these jeans are perfect for me.
They don’t make my butt look big because of the clever back pocket placement. The dark wash looks good on my larger thighs so as to not draw unnecessary attention to them.
High Rise Jeggings Cuffed
If I had to complain about anything, it would be the “wiskering” detail on the wash and the lack of functioning front pockets. I would have preferred a solid wash without the fading and of course pockets are handy, however I must say the lack of pockets does look significantly better on my larger-than-I’d-prefer body. No added bulk around my hips to add volume where it doesn’t belong! This also makes shirts look smoother on top of my jeans too.
Mid Rise Distressed Jegging
I absolutely loved the look of the Repaired Medium Mid-Rise Jeggings (pictured above) but they were not as stretchy as my high-rise jeggings and thus were not as comfortable on my large thighs. I still love the look of them though.
One pair I trialed during the 14 days didn’t fit me at all but might have had I gone up a size. The mid-rise skinny and the mid-rise straight were both very comfortable as they are super stretchy and made from a delightfully soft denim. Both pairs have functioning front pockets, nicely placed back pockets and retail for under $30. Yes, please!
Mid Rise Skinny
Overall I am extremely impressed with the denim I received to trial for 14 days and it was a lot of fun styling them different ways. None of the styles were out of my comfort zone and I could easily wear them all with my current wardrobe.
Target, once again you’ve surprised and impressed me! I will definitely be heading to Target to get a couple more pairs of their new and improved jeans. I’m officially a convert. These jeans are comparable to similarly styled jeans that cost significantly more.
Head to your local Target and try out their new denim. I promise you will be impressed!
