As a woman with thighs, an ample derriere, and a lil belly, finding a pair of jeans that speak the same language as my curves can be quite frustrating!
On the quest to find some that I can wear ALL DAY, lounge in, and be fashionable in, enter in PZI jeans. After being sent a pair of the PZI Ella Bootcut, I was pleasantly surprised. After wearing them a few times- once traveling in New York and on a relaxing lazy Sunday, I had to share with you all why these jeans made the denim cut for me.
For starters, these jeans were sized quite well! After thinking I had to play with an 18 (as most contemporary brands tend to size a bit smaller), I exchanged my jeans for my size- a 16.
The stretch in these was probably the optimal blend for my curves. So soft, not too soft to lose its shape, but not to tight to cut into my ladyparts either! You KNOW what I mean! These jeans were incredibly soft and comfortable!
The rise (the length from the crotch to the top of the zipper) was perfect, covering my pooch, but at a place that was comfortable and not too constricting- I felt held in!
The rinse (the color of the jean) in the indigo color gives me another dressier option to play with in my wardrobe- especially after realizing that I did not have an indigo rinse- not jeggings!
The length. I am 5’8” and my 34” inseam sends me to the high heavens with glee! Jeans that are long enough for heels AND flats when cuffed? YES! AND these are NOT the longest length! SWEET music to the long legged divas out there!
The pockets. How your bum looks in your jeans falls to strategic pocket placement. Ever notice how your bum can look ridiculously wide and flat (without being so?)? Chances are the pocket were so far apart and low, drawing the eye out and down. These pockets were a bit closer, angled, and stitched where I felt my bootie looked darn good! LOL.
Overall, I have found over the years PZI has stepped up its denim games with great blends and fashionable classic and contemporary cuts. I am pleasantly surprised with the brand and I had to share with you how happy and comfortable I am in these. Please know that you will more than likely see me in these over and over again!
The only drawback I have is that they stop their sizing at a size 18. Maybe one day they will fashion a plus line, but if you are on the smaller side of plus and care to fashion a pair of jeans that will not break your fashionable piggy bank, then these PZI Jeans are for you!
