This has been another highly requested post. Since the start of the pandemic, I really haven’t worn denim. Now that things are reopening, I have really been on the hunt for good denim. I decided instead of sharing specific jeans, I would share the brand since denim really fits everyone differently. These denim brands have become my go to when I actually put on jeans.
My go to for denim is something that fits my curvier body well. I have a smaller waist and bigger thighs so I tend to gravitate towards brands that either are made for that specifically or have a line for people like me. As the weather continues to get warmer, I thinking finding a good pair of denim shorts or jeans is so crucial to your summer wardrobe!
Honestly, Topshop has been my go to denim since high school. I was the biggest “Jamie” Jean fan and had them in like every color. Topshop jeans are my favorite because yes they are denim, but they have a stretch to them. It’s weird because they are not jeggings but they fit like them.
I have a lot of Topshop jeans in all different styles. I find that they fit well but are definitely pricy. One thing I’ve come to realize is sometimes you just need to make the investment and spend the extra bit. It is so worth it when you finally find a good pair of denim that the price often doesn’t even matter.
I didn’t think it was possible for me to find jeans that actually fit until I tried AE’s curvy line. Unfortunately it is online only, so It was a bit of trial and error to find the right size but when I did, it was life changing. This curvy line is made for people like me who have a smaller waist and thicker thighs. The jeans perfectly fit my waist and don’t leave that weird gap. I also love that they make a lot of styles in this curvy line.
AE is often known for their denim so I was pleasantly surprised when I also found shorts in the curvy line as well. I usually never wear denim shorts because they just don’t fit me. I actually got two pairs of shorts for this summer because they fit so well. The pricing on this denim brand was pretty accurate for what I would have expected to spend but they have a lot of sales where the denim is by one get one with a percentage off.
I honestly think AE denim is my new go to because of how well the fit was. I usually wear a size 6 or 8 in pants. For these, I ordered an 8 and they fit like a glove. Perfectly fit me around the waist and were actually baggy on the leg for the mom jeans I purchased. I highly recommend giving them a try if you are losing your mind with finding denim.
As you can see, my denim brands list is short. I really only purchase denim from these two places because they honestly fit the best. It’s so hard for me to want to try anything else because I seriously love all of my denim. Let me know if the comments below your favorite denim brands. I always so interested to hear what works well for others!
