If you look at the website for Paige jeans, which is a popular designer jean, almost all of the pockets sit above the bottom of the rear, and these models look great and so do the movie stars who often wear these jeans—definitely not mom jeans!

They pretty much should go with any top you pick. Also regarding shoes just about any style should be fine. Wear barefooted, with flats, high heels or sneakers.
Skinny jeans are fabulous, comfortable and they look great. So what are the great features of Jeaneez Legging Pants? They combine a unique feeling of comfort you get from leggings with a nice modern jean design. They help to give a nice shape to your glutes and legs, making these areas looking more firm and slim. Also get rid of those unwanted love handles. The material will never, tangle, kink or twist.
Skinny leggings have also been called jeggings. Jeggings are a form of leggings. They are leggings that are made to look like jeans. Some styles like the Jeaneez even make it look like they have pockets and a zipper. Jeaneez is leggings that look just like skinny jeans.
They use a light compress that shapes your legs and glutes making them look slim and firm. The unique design of these leggings helps to get rid of those unwanted love handles. And it is very popular these days with teenagers and young women to wear jeans in all sorts of solid crazy colours — pink, purple, red, fluoro green. First being the high waists, second being so loose around the butt that they give no support or shape, third being the mid-light blue colour.
Obviously high-waisted jeans will more likely have pockets beginning at a higher point, while lower-waisted jeans whether mid-rise or low-rise will have pockets starting at a lower point. Thanks for your input. This post is 3. Here is my latest analysis of denim: This was so funny, thank you.
My guy is awesomely handsome and I know would look so much better in a pair of awesome jeans that showed off that cute butt only I get to see when the jeans come off. I am assuming you see where the complications are?? As you can see from the last 2 digits of my email, I am an older mom. My solution for the dreaded long butt…take my 23 year old daughter with me to find the jeans. She will give me her honest and totally blunt opinion of anything I try on.. What about a person with a small rear????
At 57 I do look great in jeans…just what do I do about the small looking rear effect…. I am a 42 year old mom and would love to follow these rules, but I am also plus-sized so the actual jeans options are limited.
Do you have any advice or do you know of a plus-size designer who makes jeans that fit within the best parameters? I appreciate you trying to rid the world of mom jeans. It is an important job! However, I disagree with the idea that one needs embellishments, worn areas, whiskering, or fading to achieve a non-mom jean look.
A dark-wash jean with a flattering pockets and a flattering fit is much classier and much more appropriate, especially for those past their mids. The jeans with the swoopy pockets in several photos above are about as far as I would recommend anyone over 25 going.
A couple of the ones you pan actually are much better, they lift and give definition to your butt. Being overweight, I wish I had jeans options, but until I finish losing the pounds 25 down, 65 to go! I was just feeling miserable about this yesterday.
I thought I was doomed and at some point my butt would just pancake out and look horrifying. This made me laugh outloud! A mid-rise without being too tight around the middle seems to do the best — especially if you can find one with a very stretch waistband but not elastic!!
Also a wide waistband think two buttons tends to help. You made my day! And I am thrilled to know that long butt is avoidable. I knew something was wrong but never could quite get it. Now I understand why my husband wants me to pull down my shirt that constantly rides up in the back — not that my rear side is overly large. I rubberbanded my normal jeans until 32 weeks in the attempt of avoiding maternity jeans.
This was just fantastic! I read this just in time! I was actually laughing out loud so much so that my husband came into the room and asked me what was so funny. For the first time in a long time, I spent time in the dressing room checking out my butt and the pockets. Wore a pair out for the first time yesterday and got lots of compliments.
The real test will be when my daughters see me in a pair. Thanks again for a fun blog. Bless you for posting this!
Thanks for showing us all the way: Thanks for doing the hard work of research and for posting the VERY informative photos. I LOVE the watermelon stuffed in the pants commet. Now to get my mother to throw those away. Need to go jeans shopping myself. Is it possible to find good jeans with plain pockets?
There are tons of plainer pocketed great jeans out there. Seriously…not only have all my mom jeans, butt, and crack questions been addressed but I also got an abdominal workout at the same time! Thank you so very much from the depths of my over sized, wide set pockets. Different women look good in different things. I am having a little trouble reconciling the information listed here and then seeing the preview images on the Vault Denim site, many of which have the offending mom jeans pockets which end well before the natural curvature between the butt and the leg.
After a back injury and a bout of major depression, my weight is so not where I would like for it to be; and as I work on getting the weight off, I know that a shopping trip will be in order. Bookmarking your blog now! Vault has two lines: They are still working on perfecting their own lines, and although they are mostly great in the lower sizes, the plus sizes still need pocket work as the photos on the site clearly attest!!
They have two lines now, Code Denim and Emerson Edwards, that are really great, and I will be showing those in my upcoming sequel post. The elastic waisted polyester pants one typically sees worn by the elder population have the same phenomenon, likely due to lack of pockets. How would one counteract this in the dress pants category? Is it possible, or is Long Butt inevitable unless you have back pockets?
I have dreaded Long Butt myself, and would like to avoid it at all costs!! Dress pants are tricky, but it can be done! Express does a good job of this. Thank you SO much for risking life, pride and limb to bring all this info — I have truly learned heaps from this and will now be VERY careful to check my rear view before I leave the changing room with my new jeans — Many thanks from all the Aussies who will now NOT have to watch me walk around in hideously unsuitable jeans!!!
I will give Express a try! Many, many jeans stretch sizes, even after washing. Sales people usually know if the jeans will stretch or not and can advise about sizing. It helps to know what body type the model has for whom the clothes are cut in the first place. If the model is curvier, athletic-bodied women will have trouble. I cannot wear Ann Taylor curvy clothes for this reason. Some of the pictures she shows have tapered legs, which help destroy the butt—not just the pocket placement.
Skinny jeans have definitely gotten WAY better over the last three years, and I have slowly crept into them and found ways to make them work. You can see the transition of my taste and skinny jeans in these three posts:. Jeggings are still pretty hard for me to swallow. But the right skinny jean can be unbelievably flattering.
Thank you so much. I studied them all, it is amazing how different the same butt can look. My best friend and I are going to study up and go shopping next weekend, with our cameras so we can really see our butts!
I obviously missed this when it was first published, but so enjoyed reading. The focus at the time was on the waist. The smaller the waist, the better. And if you had a small waist, you were to show it to the world by wearing pants that fit truly at your waist the smallest part , tuck in a shirt and wear a wide belt. Oh and be warned! The jeans you now wear?
Your kids will despise them!!! And of course, what goes around, comes around! A very important tip — when jean shopping, bring along a small mirror in your purse so that you can get a full straight-on view of your rear end when jean shopping.
Trust me, it looks way different straight-on that it does when you have sort of a side or over the shoulder view. Trying to place anything in the back pocket, like a comb oh yes, I know, a style from the 80s is impossible. This style makes you look more like Sponge Bob Square Pants than a fashionable, feminine woman.
I am star struck. This article had me laughing and questioning my jean choices simultaneously. This must have taken so much of your time and I am so glad that you did.
I read your second article a about finding jeans over 50 to my mom while we were visiting. We were sitting at the kitchen table near the laundry room. I am for sure sharing this article. I just LOVE this!!! I laughed so much, and could identify with so much that you so humorously shared with us on your scientific experiment.
I enjoyed it so much, and plan to use this information when I go shopping for some new jeans very soon. And yes, they look great on most people. I saw the Express jeans picture several times on this page at the top at TJ Max today for Hoping this means perhaps they are getting a new stock from a new manufacturer which is a little sturdier. Where were you back in the day when I had a butt worth flaunting?!?!
I read all your denim posts and was afraid to get dressed. It feels like a real accomplishment! Thankfully, you addressed pocket slits on dress pants. Now my concern is khaki pants and shorts. Do we apply the same style rules of denim to these? Khaki pants and shorts are another animal altogether, and difficult indeed!! Best of luck finding some great jeans! And i need some new jeans i have an 8 week old baby Shared with all my mom friends in FB. I think your mirrors are broken. Those jeans you think make you look younger actually make your butt look WIDE and lumpy..
Only girls of a certain athletic build can pull it off. The dreaded mom jeans actually gave you a waist and took the emphasis off your hips and thighs. Better find yourself a happy medium and mirrors that work while you start deadlifting and squatting. I really enjoyed reading this! Getting the right fit does make all the difference in the world.
Just goes to show, everyone can look good with a good cut! I size up every butt in a restaurant before I sit down in my seat. This was very useful advice indeed, since I really have bad taste in clothing.
I have PCOS, which has mad me retain weight around my middle. I am pretty much biggest right at the waistline truth be told, I have looked at least 4 months pregnant since I was that far pregnant with my They cause problems of their own.
Mostly scary bad muffin top. Try William Rast jeans — they have a much bigger waist, and the jeans go in at the legs, helping people who have bigger middles. I call it the rectangular butt. When woman get to a certain age… Not to sure what age, but I think I got mine around 44 yrs of age. It ruins the gentle upper butt slope and leaves the hapless woman with something that looks akin to a garment box stuck on their old shapely butt. Low-waisted jeans with pockets that end under the butt are fine on slim women, but the same low rise, low pocket style that makes small butts look curvy also makes your waist look larger, emphasizes a middle-age pot-belly, and makes an already curvy butt look enormous.
Low-waisted jeans with pockets that end under the butt are fine on slim women, but the same low rise, low pocket style that makes small butts look curvy also makes your waist look larger, emphasizes a middle-age pot-belly and muffin top, and makes an already curvy butt look enormous. Very instructive, well written and so funny, thanks for your post. I think the pockets being below the curve of the butt make it look like your butt is so heavy that it is pushing your jeans down.
They make the butt look like it is sagging. Also, I think the lighter wash on the middle of the thigh makes the thigh look a lot larger.
It draws attention to the size of your thigh. Most low cut jeans either cause muffin top or show the crack on large women. The skinnier the jeans are, the bigger the women look from the waist up. You must change the other aspects of your appearance too. Looks more like 16 or I recommend analyzing your figure proportions to determine what shapes best suit you. It just looks suburban mommy all the way.
And at 27 years someone should be in great shape. I love your writing style, and how you are educating the masses about the abomination of mom jeans. Thanks for the giggles! What a great post! I know this is a couple years old now, but the points are still relevant. Thanks for the fun read. Will you please do a dad jean. I have had this problem no matter how old I was!
I have a short waist and I seem to always pick the wrong jeans. Now I know what to look for!!! Especially white women, who have the problem of not much in the rear anyway. As a person whose best feature is back there, I want it to be flattered. The only ones that worked were True Religion and Miss Me.
Low rise jeans do not do me any favors and neither do high rise jeans. Another problem is that jeans have become as thin as tights, and they no longer look and feel like jeans anymore.
Thank you for doing so much field research! I went shopping immediately after reading this post. I demand so much from a simple jeans and fitted t shirt. Thank you for the laughs and information!!!! With love from Texas, Stephanie. Those were such cute jeans!!! I seem to have a LOT of trouble finding jeans that doesnt have extra material or baggyness right below my butt.
Everywhere else the jeans are perfect but every single pair of jeans I try on has the same problem and it is extremely frustrating. How do I avoid this? I miss Bill Blass jeans. True they sat at the waistline-but they had room in the but and thigh. Always felt sexy in those even at a size I am 53 and in a state of pitch-black and unforgivable off-the-deep-end Grandma-jeans-wearing sin.
Whatever is comfortable, I just wear that. I have happily ditched 3 husbands for being too tight on me. I recently upcycled a pair of uncomfortable blue granny underwear into a scrunchie for my hair with which I also do nothing.
I like canvas rubber-bottomed shoes — preferably already stretched out for me, from the thrift store. I was looking for a blog that would tell me all of that was okay.
I will wipe a tear and keep looking. There is nothing wrong with a classic. Sad that many of you other ladies allow society to tell you what to wear.
All the fashionable jeans right now are in one way or another mom jeans. These ladies are simply stuck in a rut and unwilling to change. Low rise jeans are ugly. You know what to wear. Show them how a classy lady looks. Not wearing bedazzling on their back pockets, and their pants hanging low.
I am a guy, so this comes from a mans perspective. I personally love a lady with a longer waist it is just a real thing that happens as a lady gets older. Truly though with some ladies it is there in their teens but they are ashamed of it for some reason.
I live for that kind of beautiful figure — if I were a judge in a beauty contest I would be truly hard pressed to find a better backside than this type. I do think finding the right fit for jeans is important but also finding a fit to panties is very important for than fine finished look.
If you have the high waist wear panties that go with it or you are cutting the beauty in half or more. I would love to hear feedback from any lady about this truly it is a fantastic thing to see such a natural trait being enhanced.
