I’m a jean fanatic. I dress them up I dress them down. Back in the day (before kids) I used to only wear low-rise denim. They fit my body type just right. But having had two kids, my body type has most definitely changed!
After having Evelyn it took a year to get back to my size. I was so excited to finally be able to squeeze back into my low-rise jeans. And well… yikes! I had to do that “cover-the-muffin-top” number whenever I sat down, not good! And quite honestly, I just wasn’t comfortable anymore. It was time to retire the low-risers (and bikinis for that matter,) ASAP.
High-waisted mom jeans were never on my roster of clothing items until my friend, who happens to also be the most amazing stylist, Amanda Reno , turned me on to some great high-waisted options that aren’t like those mom jeans from back in the 80s! The fact is, high-waisted has become all the rage. And I think they are so comfortable, it’s all I wear now. They just provide the right amount of support in all the “right” places and still look cool.
