Jeans That Make You Look a Size Smaller (Really!)

Posted on

What to do when you overindulge on Christmas cookies or have one too many latkes and can’t get to the gym to start working off the extra holiday pounds? Well, you can try a pair of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, which features a special Lycra panel that claims to suck you in, tuck away those naughty rolls and let you wear one size smaller. I was so intrigued by the concept I even canceled my gym membership — but perhaps a tad too soon. It took me three tries before I found a pair that didn’t make me feel like a sausage. But eventually I settled on a pair of “Denim like Cashmere” and they are indeed, soft, stretchy and a size smaller than my usual pair of Sevens. On the other hand, my 60-something-year-old mom says of her pair, “I feel younger. I feel like they give me a nice figure. They’re cute and comfortable.” Her one complaint is that she wishes they had a higher waistband. Over all, the verdict is a thumbs up from both mother and daughter, but I think I’m still going to renew the membership at the gym. — Caryn Midler
