Have you noticed how obsessed we are with curves nowadays. Between waist trainers, butt lifters, pushup bras and of course, Spanx, it seems we're constantly seeking ways to enhance our figures without going under the knife. Seriously, women haven't been this sucked in and tucked in since the days of the corset!
Jeans have always been known for their body sculpting abilities. That timeless five-pocket construction has given me many a lift and tuck over the years. So what do you get when you combine the body sculpting construction of jeans with the tuck and suck technology of shapewear?
Brands like NYDJ, Marc Allison and DL1961 are just a few who have set out to answer that very question. Each of them incorporate their own version of shapewear technology into the construction of their jeans and a few boast specific claims regarding certain areas of the body.
I tested out a bunch of brands over the course of many months. Even getting my cousin Devina who was visiting from the UK to try a few pairs.. I went out in them, ran errands in them, worked in them, basically, treated them as if they were just another pair of jeans on rotation in my closet.
Over time I noticed that I began favoring some brands while others were slowly forgotten. Devina, on the other hand, favored brands that I didn't. Neither one of us obtained the bodacious bottom and coke can waist of Khloe Kardashian (as if), but overall we were pleased with the results.
