Week Of Denim Problem Solving: Jeans That Don't Stretch Out

October 21, 2008 by SheFindsSuzelle

My pet peeve is finding the perfect pair of jeans— flattering waist, great wash, right amount of flare in the leg— and then discovering they stretch out after about 10 minutes. Sure, you can mist them and pop ‘em in the dryer to tighten them back up, but what if you want to wear them out for dinner and plan on sitting down?

 

The solution is finding jeans that are a blend of cotton and lycra. Straight cotton jeans are guaranteed to bag and sag after a short time, but with just a hint of lycra, jeans will stay fitted for multiple wearings.

My favorite brand is Citizens of Humanity. They are a perfect blend of elastane (the stretchy stuff) and cotton so they’re comfy and fitted all day long.

 

 

Citizens of Humanity's Ingrid Stretch Jean ($158) provides a slim fit through the hips and thighs with a small flare in the leg. These jeans are sure to keep their shape and fit every time you wear them.
