I dare you to name one thing worse than shopping for jeans (except shopping for bikinis).
That’s right, you can’t. Because every pair of jeans that fits over your thighs and hips is gaping at the waist. And any pair of jeans that shows off your awesome waist makes your legs look like sausages.
Now you’ve found a pair that fits, except they’re too long and you trip over them or have to wear heels with them every time. Or they’re too short and they look like floods.
So you take them home and you’re rocking them, until mid-day when the material starts to stretch out and they’re sagging off you.
Next you have to wash them and that beautiful deep blue has just bled all over your lighter clothes, and the jeans faded, and also they may have shrunk a little bit?
Literally every step of this is a nightmare. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to try JAG Jeans’ Fitcode system. JAG uses the Fitcode quiz to help you determine your perfect fit. As I was dealing online, and did not have the ability to try on any jeans, I was intrigued as to how this would work.
I took the quiz, which asks you only about the shape of your waist, butt and thighs, and doesn’t require you to take any measurements. My result was 710, regular inseam, size 6. The description,”Jeans fit your hips but gap at the waist and fit tightly through your muscular thighs. Your thighs may cause jeans to slouch, especially stretchy styles, was spot-on.
I tried out the Sheridan Skinny jeans in a light wash with distressed details. I’m a huge fan of dark-wash, high-waisted Mom jeans in a leggings material, not denim material. So I was skeptical to see a pair of light-wash, mid-rise, denim-material jeans in my mailbox.
I was even more skeptical when I saw the size on the tag – size 4 regular. In my experience pants shopping, I can be anywhere from a medium to a size 10 in jeans that still don’t fit right!
However, I slipped on the jeans and was ABSOLUTELY AMAZED. It turns out that the Fitcode really does work. These jeans fit me like an absolute dream. I wanted to cry I was so happy.
Even better, because the jeans fit me perfectly, the Light Indigo wash is flattering on me! Usually, it’s recommended that women purchase dark-wash jeans, because they are slimming. However, the light wash doesn’t make me look fat at all, because the fit is so perfect. I’m so excited to style a pair of light jeans for once!
You can shop my Sheridan Skinny Jeans here.
They also come in indigo deconstructed, dark indigo, white and black.
