Jeans!

All right girls, I want you sitting down for this.

And you need to have a totally open mind.

And you need to admit, like I have, that low-rise jeans just don't work right for our body type. (having hips and a hiney)

And you need to be willing to shop for jeans somewhere you never thought you'd shop for jeans.

Walmartz. (gasp!)

But DO NOT look at the picture on WM's site- those jeans don't look like that at all!

Promise! And they really aren't "at-waist"- they hit about an inch below my belly button.




I made Mr. Sasha take this picture of me last night so you could see what they really look like.

Mr. Sasha looked at me with a wry smile and said, "I hate to tell you this, but those jeans don't look expensive."

I told him that wasn't the issue at all- I don't really care whether people think I'm wearing 7s or not.

I just don't want them to see my underwear when I sit down! That, in itself, is priceless!

I saw an article in WSJ a few months ago about these jeans and I tore it out and watched for my WM to start carrying them. Here's what WSJ said:

The company says its new Totally Slimming jeans.... flattens stomachs, flatters figures and spares women from having to manipulate their belts to keep their jeans snug. The pants were designed to minimize women's areas of concern-- specifically the stomach, thighs, and behind. They include a high-stretch fabric that shapes the legs and "lifts" the bottom, as well as proprietary slimming technology, including a hidden front panel for extra tummy control around the waistband.

I think these are pretty true to size. I got the "mediums" and you can see the length is about right with heels (remember I'm only 5'2"). The website doesn't show different lengths, but I am pretty sure I spotted talls in the store- but I don't think I saw any shorts or petites.

So if you are shaped like me, you might give these a try!

I don't think they are carrying any petite/short lengths in ANY of the stores, which bites!

I love the look of these and goodness knows the price is right but since they don't carry short, I'm no longer wearing heels and there isn't a single seamstress in this town that does an original hem, alas, yet another jean this shortie can't wear. : (

Wow Walmart who would of thunk it. I may just have to check these out, considering I could get 3 pair for the same price as 1 pair of Buckle jeans.

Hey I signed up for the ebates thing (I just clicked on the link) I hope it gave you the referral. I haven't bought anything yet, but Circuit City has free shipping and they have the Wii game we want for my BK for xmas.

Hey I also noticed that I am now the top commenter-Woo Hoo am I a dork cause this made me happy?

Seriously?? Wowza!! I'll have to be checkin' out the Wal Mart.... Jeans that fit are jeans that fit, I don't care where they come from! Thanks for the tip.

Do you have longer legs, or shorter legs? I am thinking these might just work for me since I am 5'3", but I have short legs (long torso). Fingers crossed! I have the worst time finding jeans and I am too lazy to get any hemmed!
Thanks!

M said...

The do look fantastic, I think I'm gonna give them a try.

Thanks :)

Sasha said...

Shanna, I think my legs are in the middle! Sometimes petites are too short for me to wear with heels. Most usually, I can get a regular length and it is OK with tall boots- but I definitely have to have petites/short to wear flats.

Does that help?

Jennifer said...

Those look great on you. I saw them an ad adn wondered how they'd look!

Chris said...

they look great! I have a tip for you- speaking of jeans that fit no matter the price! Steve and Barry's carries the Sarah Jessica Parker line of clothes. It is called "Bitten" Her jeans are AWESOME! They come in all colors and sizes.( I especially like the many different dark shades.)They are $8!!!! Seriously, $8!!!!! I bought one pair and they looked so good- I went back and bought every different shade no matter how slightly different. Also I don't think they look or feel cheap at all.

I second the "Bitten" jeans by Steve and Barry. I had picked up a pair last year and forgot about it. I got them out of my closet and have been wearing them all day. I'm 5-0 adn the petite fit well. I hate when pants are too long because in the winter here the bottoms get all gunky from the snow by the time I get to work!

Oh, and since I was allowed to wear jeans for work my mom bought me some of those "Not your Mother's Jeans" type things from a fancy Macey's or Nordstroms and they really do work well on the tummy area!

Slim said...

you look awesome in your jeans! You could totally use that pic to inspire some couch25k recruits!

I don't know if you ever shop Kohl's, but they carry lots of styles of Levis too, and they are always having a sale. I got a fave pair there last fall. Maybe I will be able to fit back into them by Christmas ;)

OK. I hate jeans b/c I have an arse. A bubble one. But I love and trust you and I will buy them.

Pinky swear!

SouthernAccent said...
