Covers my bum
from Chicago, IL
I am quite curvy and jeans have always gapped in the waist for me. I have recently embraced high-rise jeans. These actually aren't too high in front... but have a nice high rise in back so when I bend over there are no problems!
I have the slim illusion black, both corduroys, and the green embossed snake skin. The black have the most stretch (great for days that I ate too much). The black corduroys feel a tad slimmer than the cognac, and the green embossed are a tad slimmer in the waist. Hindsight - I would have only ordered a size bigger in the embossed. I generally order a 27 in this fit, but would have ordered a 28 in the embossed. For point of reference, I also order a size 28 in Paige.
Slimming and Sleek!
I am in love with my High Waist Slim Illusions in black! These jeans are super comfortable and truly slim you out. The material is flexible and sucks you in...in a good way! The waist sits at the perfect spot, sliming out your sides and tummy (also great for ladies with a booty!) The rich black color is perfect for a casual day or night look. They dont bag out in the butt/knees and hold their shape all day. I normally wear a 26 and was true to size in these. Truly a perfect fit! :)
No Waist Gap!
My waist is smaller than my bottom half and I typically have a tough time fitting into low or mid rise jeans. When the rise is too low, I'm constantly pulling up my jeans. Also, if I get a low or mid rise to fit around my butt, it's typically way too big in the waist. I love the 7 high rise because it eliminates the headache of all of the above. Plus, from a vanity standpoint, I can wear my actual waist size :)
