I Swear These Super-Stretchy, $118 Jeans Gave Me the Butt of My Dreams
I've actually chosen to wear them over sweats (which is a miracle).
Allowing my jeans to stay buried in my bedroom drawer was probably one of the easiest things I've done all year. Even before the pandemic, I considered myself a creature of comfort; I'd much rather curl up on the couch in a soft pair of sweats, and am a big fan of easy, one-and-done pieces, such as jumpsuits or blanket dresses. When I am in mood for a good fashion forward look, incorporating denim always felt like a last resort — until I discovered a butt-boosting pair that completely changed mind.
While I never thought I'd see the day when I'd willingly and excitedly pull on a pair of jeans, Mavi's Victoria jeans are too good not to wear. The design is high-waisted and slightly flared like my usual go-to pair, but the material is mostly cotton with 2% elastane — a small detail that makes all the difference. They're tight and secure around my stomach, sort of like shapewear, but they also have a little stretch that helps to hug me in all the right places. Putting them on makes me feel confident, rather than uncomfortable.
While I still love my sweats (and, admittedly, my old jeans, which I now weirdly feel like I have to apologize to), I'll definitely be breaking out these babies more often. There's a strong correlation between great fashion and good moods, so if you, too, want comfortable jeans that help to highlight your butt and make you feel happy, shop a pair for yourself, ahead.
