THE BEST DENIM FOR YOUR CURVES



 
The mid-rise distressed skinny, my absolute favorite! I did not know how light wash denim would look on my figure, but I was pleasantly surprised with just how much I loved these jeans. I rolled up the ankles and topped off this outfit with these ankle boots.



 I loved trying this mid-rise straight leg denim because I usually wear skinny jeans and try to stay away from any kind of loose fitting denim. However, these jeans were versatile and comfortable. I also loved the color of the wash on this pair!

True blue: With all of the variations of denim circling around the fashion world these days, I forget the true blues of denim. This pair of mid-rise jeggings brought back that blue hue and looked so vibrant, while feeling oh so comfortable.

I have always been a dark denim girl, so when I saw these high-rise jeggings, I could not resist. I love the pressed detail on the thighs, which give the pair some variety and over all contribute to an alternative look.



Apparently, I am not the only girl who struggles when it comes to finding the right fit, style or color of denim that best fits my body. According to a recent study conducted by Target, more than half of women have difficulty finding jeans that complement their body or make them feel confident.

My denim diaries are pretty monotonous. Every pair must be dark in wash, have some stretch in them, and I must be able to wear them all day without wanting to run home on my lunch break to switch the jeans out for a pair of leggings. So, I decided to take part in a denim adventure with Target and wear their new denim for 14 days!

What I loved about the denim that I received from Target was that each pair was different and presented a challenge. Only two pair were dark in wash, and one pair had very little stretch in them.

I told Target representatives that I wanted a pair of jeans that I could lounge around in, but also dress up to wear to my 9-to-5. I wanted these jeans to be comfortable enough that I could walk my dog in and not want to take them off as soon as I got home. I was getting tired of wearing dark jeggings that never felt or looked like actual jeans, which I also told the reps.

Target definitely made my denim dreams come true and expanded the possibilities of the kind of jeans I could wear. Believe it or not, my favorite pair from the bunch were light washed skinny jeans—the exact opposite of what I was most comfortable wearing. I always thought I couldn’t wear light washed denim as they would not complement or flatter my curves. However, this pair proved that theory to be so wrong. I wore these jeans the most because I felt like I was able to embrace the new style with so many pieces from my wardrobe. This pair of jeans fit perfectly for my 5’2 frame as well. There was no bunching at the ankles and the jeans fit snug around my thighs and my waist—something that I often find challenging.

I wore these jeans to work, the beach, the dog park, at home, to the movies, to a 4th of July party, brunch, two food festivals, and shopping. Each pair made me feel sexy, beautiful, confident, and most importantly, comfortable.
