These $20 Jeans Smooth My Stomach and Hug My Curves, So I'm Ditching Designer Denim
My biggest problem with jeans? The dreaded muffin top. I have wide hips, so finding a style that doesn't cause my stomach or sides to spill over is tough. Can a girl tuck her shirt in without feeling like she's encased in saran wrap? My confidence levels recently soared when I headed to Old Navy for a fitting room try on. I had never tried the brand's denim before, but I was definitely curious to see how it fit.
Fast forward one hour, and I walked away from the cash register with these Old Navy High-Waisted Light Stone-Washed Slim Wide-Leg Jeans ($20, originally $40). They are so freakin' flattering, people. I slipped them on and they button over my stomach with ease, fitting snugly without squeezing or pinching. I bought a size 12, which is my typical choice for bottoms, so they're true to size.
Not only do these jeans fit well, but they're also smoothing and a great cut. They have a bit of elastic in them, which makes the material really comfortable, too. Luckily, even with the built-in stretch, they don't bag out after wearing them all day. The wider leg is cute because it can easily be dressed up or down. I found a winner! I could definitely wear a bodysuit or tucked-in shirt with these jeans and feel amazing.
