I have a confession to make...While I am not wealthy, nor am I overly materialistic, I AM a "Denim Snob." What does this mean? Well, to put it simply, I am incredibly picky when it comes to the jeans I wear. Many jeans are too long for me, while others just feel overly starched, scratchy, and just plain uncomfortable. Another issue I have with a lot of denim is finding the best fit for my poor body that has gone through 3 pregnancies followed by 3 cesareans. Yep, this mama has the belly pooch. One day, after I win the lotto, I will surely have the abdominoplasty it will take to have a perfectly flat tummy. But for now, I just have to deal with it. So pair the belly pooch with the fact that I have skinny legs and no butt to speak of, and you can see why I have a difficult time finding jeans that fit properly. With so many options available, it's often hard to find the pair of jeans that is just right for my body. Too often I end up with a saggy looking backside, bagginess in the thigh area, or an overall odd appearance altogether.
So because of these body issues common to moms, I often find myself either gravitating towards Jeggings or my Pajama Jeans. Or worse: My favorite jeans ever that cost almost $200.00 a pair! I don't know about any of you, but I certainly cannot afford to stock up on jeans that are that expensive, no matter how well they fit! That's why I jumped at the chance to review the new dENiZEN Jeans made by Levi's. These new jeans come in many different washes and styles, and have something for the entire family. dENiZEN Jeans are found exclusively at Target, and are priced very reasonably. At under $30.00 a pair, you can stock up on those bootcuts, skinny jeans, and more without having to answer a million questions from a wide-eyed hubby as he stares in disbelief at the bank statements. By the way, this would never happen in my home since I am the one who budgets and manages the finances. But I can see this happening in other households, and it's never fun to have to justify those splurges! dENiZEN Jeans are one of those rare, frugal finds that can always be justified. After all, everyone needs a great pair of jeans, right? And $30.00 or LESS is a steal! I have personally spent several times more than that on one pair of jeans before. Granted, that was before there were babies in the house and we had more financial wiggle room.
Well, I wish I could say I have a new favorite pair of jeans. While the dENiZEN Jeans by Levi Strauss are awesome, they just can't compare to my go-to jeans. I didn't really expect them to, though. That being said, I really do like my dENiZEN Jeans. I was pleasantly surprised both by the quality and the fit. I wish I had ordered a size smaller, though. When I was first offered this opportunity, I was wearing a size 10 and ordered accordingly. There were some slight delays in shipping, so by the time the jeans arrived, I was down to a size 6-8. The jeans still fit well enough that they don't fall off, but I wish they were just a little bit snugger. That is my own fault for losing weight, though, and doesn't reflect on the jeans at all. dENiZEN Jeans are definitely true to size, and even offer a good amount of stretch to them. This makes them ideal for everyday wear, even if you're suffering from PMS bloating. Something extra cool about these jeans? They even feature a tummy-slimming invisible support panel, built right in to the jeans. This is simply awesome, since my mom-pooch needs all the help it can get until I can afford my much-needed tummy tuck!
The dENiZEN Jeans are also very comfortable. The fabric is not overly starchy or rough feeling like so many inexpensive jeans are. They actually feel nice against the skin! Another thing I really like it that since they do have some stretch to them, I have not experienced any uncomfortable "Digging-in" sensations, especially after a big meal, and I also haven't gotten any red, irritating indentation marks. Let's face it: Even the best jeans in the world can cause marking. Well, my dENiZEN jeans didn't.
Overall, I would definitely recommend dENiZEN Jeans by Levi Strauss. These frugally priced jeans are surprisingly high quality, look and feel great, and come in a wide variety of washes and styles for men, women, and kids alike! And seriously, for $30 a pair or less, I can buy jeans for my family of 5 for the same price as JUST ONE pair of my favorite skinny jeans. Holy cow! dENiZEN Jeans are fashion forward, attractive, and dare I say, even a little sexy? They are definitely well constructed and built to last. But then again, what would you expect from Levi's. They're the company that started our Jeans obsession, after all! I definitely plan to get some dENiZEN Jeans for my family, as well as a few more pairs for myself!
