As stated in our Denim Dare post, Zia and I are testing out jeans to see which ones are flattering to women like us who are more pear or hour glass shaped. We met a few denim companies who were willing to put up with our challenge. We’ve done one and loved it, now here’s another – which we love too. This time we’re trying out AG (Adriano Goldschmied)’s Jessie Jean – a bootcut jean made curve friendly. The Jessie comes in two styles – The Advance and The Reese (pictured below).
The AG Jessie Jeans are a wonderful dark indigo that is perfect for day or night. The cut fits the hips wonderfully without gaping in the waist. The waist fits well but I still could have benefitted from a belt (I believe I need a smaller size – I have been working out but what a pleasant surprise). The length enabled me to wear 3 or more inch heels, which elongates my legs taking emphasis away from my hip area. I really like the jeans. The cut, style and color made me feel sexy not self-conscious about my hips (I’m embracing all of me so I am no longer calling parts of my body problem areas).
With AG ‘s Jessie Jeans, I don’t have to worry about any gaps in the back waistband or any butt cleavage, an issue many women have who are blessed (or cursed) with a small waist and a wider bottom area (hips, thighs, or butt or all three). The waistband on the jeans lays smooth all around. I can breathe, I can sit comfortably, I can even bend without giving the public (or whoever is standing behind me) a free show. The fit of the Jessie was perfect from the waist throughout the thighs. Surprisingly the Jessie’s also gave me two looks in one – I folded the cuffs to achieve a sort of Boyfriend Jean look (though more tapered in the thighs) with my ballet flats or sometimes I keep it unfolded for a clean and sleek look which gives me the appearance of longer legs when I’m rocking my stilettos.
To make this jean even more curve friendly, Adriano Goldschmied is going to improve on the Jessie Jean even more by adding 1/4 inch rise on the back waistband starting this fall, which will give women an even more comfortable fit – shorter length sweaters and crop jackets here I come.
As you see (or rather read), we both were very satisfied with the Jessie Jeans. It has become a staple in my wardrobe and I find it’s in my laundry pile quite often – obviously I love wearing it A LOT.
