I have something to say about buying jeans. I DID IT. I got another pair of jeans! Thanks to Levi’s, I had a chance to check out their selection prior to shopping so I had a good idea what I wanted. Shopping for them was, admittedly, online. That’s due to a couple of things that mostly have to do with working very long hours lately. Before I did that, though, I had to make my Must Have List for what I want in a pair of jeans. Here’s where I admit to looking at pictures of jeans and also looking at lots of pictures of butts in jeans. Try explaining that to your teenage sons who are looking over your shoulder while you do this.
I’m not perverted or anything, but the Butt Factor is something that women tend to look for in a good pair of jeans. I can’t count the number of times my girlfriends and I have said this sentence to one another: Your butt looks good in those jeans.
Out of the three pair I own I have a favorite pair and they are the ones in which my butt looks the best. I call them the Good Butt Jeans. Or Bruce. I like to switch it up a little since I have so very few pairs.
It’s kind of a requirement to feeling good about myself in a pair of jeans to know I look good in them. It’s not just the style of jeans that matters to me, it’s whether or not it flatters my butt. I don’t even care if that sounds shallow of me: good jean butt is a Real Thing and it is important.
So, what are my non-negotiables when it comes to buying a good pair of jeans? Well, they have to have three things:
1. The pockets must be perfectly placed or else it negates my earlier claim of my butt needing to look good in them.
2. The length must hit me right at the top of my foot. I’m a tall woman and this is always an issue in pants and jeans.
3. The color must be just right. I love dark colored jeans and don’t mind if they fade just a little bit. Anything light never seems to flatter me. Dark colored jeans seem to be more forgiving.
I put together a little slideshow of my jeans dos and don’ts for you. I feel like this is your reward for going on this jean shopping journey with me so I can find the perfect pair. Warning: there are lots of butts here. But nothing that isn’t safe for work. I promise!
