I Swear These Super-Stretchy, $118 Jeans Gave Me the Butt of My Dreams
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.
