Well, with a new season comes new fashion rules and clothing. One of my favorite pieces of fashion is making an appearance this spring. That is the high waisted jean. This pant makes the legs appear longer, supports and shows off the butt, and tucks the stomach. Often called “Mommy jeans”, these supportive and comfortable jeans are now the focus of high fashion.
While the super low jeans have had a good run, they did some funky things to fashion. One, they made showing your underwear fashionable. This meant people were showing everything from the racy thong to their boxers. With the high waist jean, showing your undies results in a wedgie. Sorry guys, the thongs will be hidden from view for a while. But, on the upside, parents everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their children are not parading around showing off their panties.
The other issue with the super low rise jean was that it had to be tight in order to stay in place. While the jean itself did not have to be tight, if they weren’t, then a belt was needed or the girl could expect to find her jeans around her ankles at any given time. This is because there is not a lot at the hips to hold the jeans up, while jeans that sit high on the waist have more support and do not require such a tight fight. This tight fight created the muffin top, and those fashion don’t should be limited by the high waist jean.
Super low jeans did make your legs appear shorter. Sorry girls, it did. Even if you had thin, long legs, the low jeans made them look a little thicker and shorter. The high waisted jean helps to add length to your leg; and with length comes that slimmer image. This is because the line for your legs starts all the way up at the waist, rather than at the hip, which tends to be the widest part of a woman’s body. For someone of my height, 4’11”, this is a big deal.
The super low jeans of the past seasons did nothing for any girl’s butt. Sorry, you all looked like you had flat butts and wide hips. However, the high waist jeans of this new season has the support needed to hug and shape the butt. Welcome to the season of nice butts. Even those girls who do not have a butt normally, have a nice butt while wearing these jeans.
Personally, I own a couple pairs of these high waist jeans. I always get complements on them and how great they make my legs and butt look. My own husband hates when I wear them because he does not like the looks I get from the guys. Girls, take it from someone who has actually worn these comfortable and fashionable jeans. These are a must for this spring season, all the way through the summer. You’ll love them!
