I've done it. I've finally found the world's. best. jeans.
And the best part? They're not designer and they're not expensive. That's right. They're from Gap.
Now, if you're anything like me, trying to find jeans that fit is something akin to sticking sharp needles in your eyes - hell on Earth. If they fit in the thighs, they're too big in the waist, leaving a nice gap so you can show everyone your thong-of-the-day. But if they fit in the waist, they're too small in the thighs, sucking in your legs until they feel like sausages. Or maybe they fit in the waist and the thighs (miracle of miracles), but then they're 6 inches too long (or too short, pick your poison).
Enter the 1969 Resolution pull-on seamed legging jeans. They've got an elastic waistband instead of a button and zipper, so you avoid the awful puckering of jeans that are too big or too small. It also keeps your pants from gapping in the back. They come in regular, tall and petite so no matter how short or tall you are, they've got a size for you. I was skeptical of pants called "leggings" at first - they're usually not so forgiving to those of us with athletic thighs. But magically, these somehow seem to slim my thighs rather than magnify them. So of course, I bought them in 3 colors. What's a girl to do?
Try them yourself and let me know what you think. They've become my go-to pants for the season!
