I’m pretty sure that the 2nd most traumatic thing to shop for, behind the dreaded swimsuit, is a pair of jeans.
As horrifying as swimwear is to struggle into over underpants and under fluorescent lights, at least this terrifying trip to the dressing room precedes a vacation trip to a beach and/or pool and sun. Horror shifts to happy pretty quick, no matter how bad we think we look, when tropical drinks with umbrellas are involved.
Jeans, however, are a different story. They’re an integral part of every aspect of our lives, not just the vacation part: we shop, walk, run, wrangle, eat, clean, work, worry, play, plan, party, rest, cry, crash, rule, jump, fall and do everything else in them. Jeans may as well be our second skin.
But at least our skin, for better or worse, fits. Jeans? Not so much.
And there are so many factors that determine that magical combination of cut, color, wash, length and Lycra (truckloads, please!) that best corral and flatter our bits and blobs, hopefully molding it into a work of art (okay, maybe abstract art, but still.)
That elusive, perfect fitting pair of jeans is worth everything. I don’t need to tell you why, but I will anyway:
- They make you feel skinny
- They make you feel sexy
- They make you feel happy
- They make you feel comfortable
- They make you feel put together
- They make you feel confident
- They make you feel strong
- They make you feel good
Luckily, we recently discovered a brand of jeans that is all about that perfect fit, and how great that perfect fit makes us feel: NYDJ jeans. I love what they say about their happy pants:
“For every woman who has ever sacrificed comfort for style…or style for comfort. For every woman who has ever stood in the harsh light of a dressing room and made a wish. And for every woman who has ever tried on five outfits before leaving the house. For you, we created NYDJ. That’s because the right pair of jeans can transform not only how you look – they can change how you feel.”
They are made using premium denim with that “just right” amount of stretch, resulting in comfortable jeans that don’t bag between washings. They’ve even patented their “Lift Tuck Technology®,” which provides gentle control in the front while lifting and shaping your (sometimes out of control) rear. This transforming tucking technology is present across all of the NYDJ products. Just when you think all technology is used for new versions of Candy Crush or to further tether us to our jobs and/or other unpleasant intrusions, this technology is used to help us fit into a pair of jeans. Genius.
So check them out. The most traumatic thing about trying NYDJ jeans on will be figuring out which style to get.
