dENiZEN Jeans Now at Target {Review}

Levi Strauss & Company recently debuted their new line of jeans at Target stores and on this July. The brand is called dENiZEN and they are the same quality and value you already expect from Levi. With prices ranging from $17.99 to $29.99, you know you’re getting a great deal.

denizen jeansI recently had the chance to try out a pair of dENiZEN jeans for myself. For the review I received a pair of “Totally Shaping at Waist Boot Cut Womens Jeans.”

I have a love/hate relationship with these jeans.

I guess I should explain.

First, here’s what I love about these jeans:

  • They are, by far, the most comfortable pair of jeans I own. The material is so different from any other jeans I own, and I just love the feel of them. The high-stretch denim is incredibly soft.
  • I love the cut. The boot cut is perfect, the jeans are slimming to my butt and my legs, and they are actually long enough. {So many times I get a Long size jean and they’re not near long enough.}
  • I love the color. The dark denim is perfect for pairing with a t-shirt or dressing up with a blouse or a sweater.
  • I don’t have to worry about my underwear poking out the back when I sit down.

Now, here’s my biggest drawback, and the reason for my love/hate relationship with these jeans. It requires a bit of explaining, so here goes.

I am not a little woman. I used to be, but after 6 children, my body just doesn’t look like it used to. I have a “pouch” that I’ve been left with after having my belly stretched to infinity and beyond and back again. Because of this, whenever I wear the jeans, they roll down in the front underneath the “pouch.” It drives me batty, and if I’m wearing a form-fitting shirt, I immediately go from shaped to flabby. I’m constantly rolling them back up, and I hate it.

And then there’s the fact that the first time my husband saw me in the jeans, he asked, “Are those pajama jeans?” Sigh.

I do love the jeans, but I think I next time I’ll try a different style. The make a Totally Shaping Mid-Rise Boot Cut for women that I’ll definitely be trying on the next time I’m in a Target store. Maybe if I start the jeans below the “pouch” it will be better. They also offer jeans for men and children, and I’m not opposed to trying out the jeans for the rest of my family. They’re such a great value that they are definitely worth a try.
