Your favorite pair of jeans that have suddenly become your new best friend. Once you've found that perfect pair of denim jeans, you treasure them...remember the brand and hope they never wear out.
The hardest part? FINDING the perfect pair of jeans!

We're here to help girlfriends!
We've heard your plea and your pain!!
We've created "your dressing room denim checklist".
By following these tips, we know getting a great fit will be easier.

*Waist-Check that the waistband sits comfortably and that your tummy or "muffin top" that we so endearingly call it, doesn't spill over. Bend and touch your toes to see if you're showing too much skin in back. If you are, you need a higher waistband.

Rise-A mid rise is universally fattering, lower works on short torsos, and higher is great on long torsos.

Hips and thighs-Avoid puckering or pulling, especially in the crotch area, as it will be unflattering and uncomfortable. Try to stay with a sleek and smooth effect.

Butt-Try on a pair that feels like it fits, then walk, sit down, stand back up, and take a second look. There shouldn't be any bunching or sagging.

Inseam-Jeans you wear with flats can break anywhere between just below the ankle and right above the ground. Jeans you wear with heels should be long enough to cover the back of shoes.

Fabric tips-Check the stretch. A pair with some stretch is ideal-jeans that have none at all can feel uncomfortable.

Check the wash. Darker rinses are versatile and slimming. Lighter rinses and embellishments (bling) draw the eye, so be sure they're on areas you want to stand out.
