Did I Find the Holy Grail of Mom Jeans?

It’s quite possible that I’ve found a single pair of jeans that solves all of my jean-wearing woes.

Here are 3 reasons why the Levi’s Mid-Rise Skinny just might be the Holy Grail of “mom jeans”:

1. They aren’t low rise. Hallelujah.

I’m a fan of the skinny jeans, especially in the Fall because I’m always wearing boots, but it’s next to impossible to find stylish-looking jeans that aren’t low-low-low-low rise. And I’m so done with low rise — can we all agree on that? The minute you spend your days bending, squatting, and crawling (also known as parenting), the low rise needs to go. And you know what? Forget about the “mom” reason. I’m just tired of sitting down in a public place and worrying if my underwear (or what’s under the underwear) is showing.

Yet the mid-rise from Levi’s is a nice compromise — high enough to cover your backside (and problem areas up front — I’m just saying), yet reasonably low enough to not look “mom jeans-ish.” I’m not saying I don’t like a good pair of now-stylish high-rise jeans, I do, but the mid-rise falls reasonably below the belly button.

2. There’s plenty of stretch.

I don’t have to do a set of squats just to get these pants to loosen up.

3. Proper coverage

Part of this has to do with the higher-rise waist, yes, but do you see how they don’t pucker out? That’s because these mid-rise skinnies are part of the Levi’s Curve ID, which is designed to fit a variety of different curves. (Me? I’m a “Demi Curve.”) You can find your perfect fit — and hence your perfect jeans — with Levi’s Curve ID Fit Finder.

Bottom line?

Life changing.

You can find the Levi’s Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans at Macy’s for $54.99.
