This weekend I was determined to find skinny jeans or leggings instead of my normal boot cut jeans uniform. Jeans that are marketed to the “slim through hip and thigh” club are normally not available for the curvy gal.
So why do the gals that are slim through hip and thigh get all the good clothing options? Well, I’m not having it, so I headed to Nordstrom. I went straight to the Not Your Daughters Jeans and pulled all the jeans in size 8 that had a slim leg. I found three pairs that I thought would (hopefully) fit and off to the dressing room I went. I was surprised to find that these jeans fit really well. I found skinny jeans for the pear shaped gal jack pot!
Now, I know that NYDJ are rather expensive, but I did start my search at discount stores such as Kolh’s, then Macy’s and found nothing. NYDJ are constructed to really pull in those trouble spots, especially in the hip and thigh area. Sadly, I don’t have those nice long and lean legs, but you can see from the photo below, that NYDJ makes me look like I do.
The floral peasant top that I’m wearing is from Kohls. This particular top is no longer available, but the Jennifer Lopez line has a bright pink and purple peasant top that would look great with these dark gray skinnies.
I purchased three pairs of NYDJ skinny jeans so more outfits to come featuring these fabulously fitting skinny jeans!
