So here’s a funny thing you might not know about me: I don’t like jeans. I get that they’re a wardrobe staple, and the biggest fashion trend since the 1960’s… But I would rather wear a dress, or a tunic & leggings, any day. Jeans have always felt stiff and restrictive to me! Of course, some of that distaste could be related to my inability to find jeans that actually fit me well. My legs are proportionately long for my body, so I usually have to go up a size to find jeans that aren’t too short, and then of course they just kind of fall off… And I’m back to dresses, lol!
Recently, denim company French Dressing Jeans contacted me about reviewing a NEW line of jeans they are launching in the USA for the first time, called LOVE Premium Denim. Utilizing Lycra and what they call “Hold-You-In” Technology, their jeans come in four different curve-conscious fits, and are designed to “flatten the tummy and lift the behind.” I was skeptical, I have to admit, but sent them my sizing info and waited.
A beautiful package arrived in the mail a few days later: my new LOVE Premium Denim “Kylie” skinny jeans, designed with a higher rise for us ladies with narrower hips, so they stay up and don’t sag down in the bootie. (Also available are the Suzanne, the Olivia, and the Jegging.) I immediately loved the softness of these jeans, and the cleverly-cut lines. See those vertical seams on the legs? Those are a visual trick of the eye that elongate and slenderize your figure!
Ok, consider me impressed… But what about the fit?
Slipping into my Kylie jeans felt very much like putting on a pair of leggings; soft, stretchy, and surprisingly comfortable! And the cherry on top: these babies are looooong! Yeah, definitely NOT putting them in the dryer, lol; they’re the perfect length. I’ve never been able to wear skinny jeans that had that little “scrunch” at the bottom, over my shoes! Seriously, I might admit that I squealed in delight, but don’t tell anyone.
Friday morning I leave for an amazing European adventure. I can’t wait to see what fashions are trending “across the pond!” My suitcase is packed, and I’m ready to go… With my new favorite jeans: Kylie skinnies that go with e v e r y t h i n g!!! Thank you for the opportunity to change my mind about jeans, LOVE Premium Denim! LOVE you right back.

You’re so dang cute, Tanya. LOOOVE those jeans. And the new hair!
Thank you so much, Aunie! And welcome home, you brave, awesome girl. 🙂 Xoxo!!!
I stumbled on your story here about the perfect pair of blue jeans, and the inability to find the perfect pair. I was doper excited and then found myself reading it and having another cooky “perfect pair” jean moment.
Although I love the fact that you’ve found your pair, but for me the ideal is completely different.
I’ve sold almost diesel, lucky, mace, silver, brands. Almost 20 years ago my obsession with denim began. And now all I find are long , saturated with Lycra skinny jeans.
Could you point me in the direction of denim jeans, in talking a 100% cotton ass kicking double busted seemed quality denim?
Oh, that’s a tough one, Charlie! Most denim companies now use lycra in their jeans, for the comfort and stretch. When I was in London, Levi’s were all the rage! Have you considered looking on ebay or local vintage stores for classic Levi’s? They are still the fashion standard for denim! Good luck – I hope you find YOUR perfect jeans! OXOX
I hope you found plenty of good laundromats to keep them in decent condition.
