Growing up, I never wore jeans. NEVER. I was weird and didn’t try a pair of jeans until I was in high school. Of course, I was hooked after my first pair. I developed an even greater love for jeans that fit me well after I lost a large amount of weight. The downside to finding a great pair of jeans is that they eventually wear out and you need a new pair. A downside to being pregnant is that I’m pretty sure my hips are bigger and I may never wear the same jeans as I did before I got pregnant. So, I’ve been on the hunt for new jeans since W was born.
I recently received a pair of dENiZEN jeans to review. I was interested in trying the jeans because I had seen them at Target but had never tried on a pair. So I selected a pair of boot cut jeans in my current size 14 (thank you hips and baby weight) to see how they worked for me. The dENiZEN line was launched by Levi Strauss & Co. in July 2011 and is exclusive to Target stores. dENiZEN jeans are the perfect fit for today’s active families, offering the perfect balance of style and value.
dENiZEN jeans are available in numerous custom washes so there’s a perfect fit and style for every occasion – casual, work, weekend or family fun. This is something I’ve always noticed at Target because the variety of fits and washes is great. Women’s sizes are available from 2 – 18, with fits including Mid-Rise Boot-Cut, Mid-Rise Straight, as well as the Totally Shaping Mid-Rise Boot Cut and Totally Shaping At Waist Boot Cut featuring high stretch denim and a built-in tummy control panel for a body slimming and shaping effect. Men’s size range from 29″- 42″ and 30″-34″L with fits including 236 Regular, 299 Loose, 285 Relaxed, 281 Straight, 233 Low Boot, 218 Slim Straight, 216 Skinny and 208 Super Skinny. Girls’ sizes ranges from 4-20 with fits including Super Skinny, Skinny and Slim Boot. Boys’ sizes range from 4-20 with fits including 299 Loose, 281 Straight, 218 Slim Straight, 216 Skinny and 208 Super Skinny. I believe there truly is something for everyone — men, women, and kids — in the dENiZEN line.
The fit I selected was the Totally Shaping Mid Rise Boot Cut in medium length. I chose a dark wash and size 14 based on the measurements. The fit worked well for me with my wide hips so that was a relief once I pulled them on. The length was also right on so I’m glad I didn’t get a longer length that I had debated. I also liked the dark wash I chose because I have been wanting a pair of jeans in a darker wash. These jeans definitely have a tight fit which I do like except that I have a few more pounds to lose. Once I do that, I have a feeling these have the possibility of becoming one of the pairs of jeans I reach for most of the time!
Buy It! dENiZEN jeans are available at Target and Target.com. Prices range from $17.99 t0 $29.99 depending on the style you’re interested in.
