I'm definitely not a fashion plate.
My standard outfit is a pair of jeans and a tee shirt (hopefully a clean one).
I love wearing jeans, but have always had trouble finding any that fit well. I'm one of those curvy women, who's been followed by an ample behind all her life. My favorite uncle used to greet me with, "Hi Cristo, who's that following you?". Not sure why he's my favorite uncle.........but I digress.
After years of searching, I have found the perfect pair of jeans.
I had heard of the Not Your Daughter's Jeans brand, but had dismissed them because of their price. I couldn't see myself paying upwards of $100 for a pair of jeans. The last jeans I bought were from a thrift shop and I paid somewhere around $5 for them.
Funnily enough, my MIL called to ask about the selling price of NYD Jeans here in the states. They are made in the USA and have found their way to England. Now, you have to understand that my MIL has never owned a pair of jeans before. She found the Tummy Tuck Jeans, liked the feel of the fabric (Butter Wash), tried them on and had to buy them. They were marked up considerably from the prices here, but she made the investment and encouraged me to find a pair of my own. (She was here visiting during one of my prior multi-hour shopping searches for jeans. I bought a pair then, that I still haven't worn!)
Well, I had to at least find them and try them on, right?
I'll spare you the details of my shopping trip. Suffice it to say that I owe my MIL a great deal for pointing my in the direction of Tummy Tuck Jeans.
They are true to their claims. They flatten your tummy and lift your bottom, allowing you to wear one size smaller than normal. They don't gap at the back. And they don't stretch out when you wear them.
I am SO in love with my new jeans!! I've even gone to their website, signed up for their "club" and given my testimonial.
You have got to go try a pair for yourself.
