Jeans to Hide a Big Tummy

Dear Deborah,

I was hoping you could tell me where I could purchase the perfect pair of jeans. I have a wide flat butt and a bit of a pooch. Tired of searching. If you could lead me in a direction, that would be great. Thanks, Mona

Where does a modern midlife mama find a decent pair of jeans these days?

They’re either cut so low that your jelly belly hangs out, and it feels like they may slip off your behind if you sit down too fast, or…

They’re cut so ridiculously high that they remind you of the ultra boring mom jeans that make you look like Frump of The Year.

Thank Goodness for Not Your Daughter’s Jeans.

NYDJ is best known as the makers of the original Tummy Tuck Jean® and has been seen on Oprah.

Jeans come in various body-friendly styles and have a unique crisscross panel that promises to flatten your tummy, lift your butt, and allow you to wear one size smaller. (it sounds like a girdle, but hey, if it works…)

Choose Your Cut Wisely

Boot Cut Jeans – Trendy cut. Great for balancing out the hips and suits almost anybody.
Straight Leg Jeans – this classic shape is perfect for a petite woman and is great paired back with longer-style tops.
Trouser Wider-Leg Style – Great for tall women and streamlines your look. Minimizes the hip and thigh area.

Two Fingers Test

When you try on a pair of stretch jeans, they should be snug enough so you can just fit two fingers down the back waist of your jeans. If the back waist is too loose, your stretch jeans will be baggy after the first hour.
