You know you've found your PERFECT fit when you want to buy them in every wash and throw away all your other jeans - something I'm seriously contemplating now I've discovered Nudie Skinny Lin. I don't need to remind any woman the perils of finding jeans that fit. We've all pounded the pavements in search of that holy grail. We've all got pairs in the wardrobe that we're still waiting to fit in to, or worse still, the pair that fit in the shop but stretched and we never wore again. That's why, when you find a fit that FITS, it's something to shout about.
Nudie are a brand my boyfriend has been wearing, and raving, about for years. Finally I decided to give them a go, and damn, he was right! I'm far from a skinny minnie - I love skinny jeans, but don't have the skinny legs to go with them. So when I look for a skinny fit they need to fit the curves and pack a good stretch. Skinny Lin has a curved waistband which makes for a comfortable rise and an improved fit at the waist. They're slightly higher at the back and slightly lower at the front - which means they keep my muffin tops tucked in but don't look like 80s Mam jeans. They're a tight, skinny fit, top to bottom, and made with a power stretch meaning they go on easy and they stay comfy. When they arrived I couldn't believe how well they fit - almost made to measure.
The wash, called Juvenile Worn, is a sun-bleached style blonde indigo wash - we're talking 90s stylee... absolutely perfect for the summer... if it ever appears. Next up, I NEED to get them in black and then maybe the washed out grey. It's more than I'd normally like to spend on a pair of jeans, but when you find THAT FIT, it's worth paying a bit extra, especially when I know I'll wear them to death.
