If you’re like most mums, jeans are the cornerstone of your wardrobe. And this season, JAG has revealed their best fit yet! We’ve rounded up some of our favourite new mummy fashionistas to test JAG jeans out, just in time for the cooler weather. So which jeans go best with a new bub? Check out Mama Stylista and Glamour Mama’s guides to finding the perfect fit.
Our two influencers are both incredibly well known in the fashion blogging world. Glamour Mama Kate brings the funny into fashion as she hunts for style amongst the sandbox while Mama Stylista Dee is a mummy of two as well as a fashion buyer and stylist. Our mummies have very different tastes and shapes but they can both agree on one thing – for all new mums out there, JAG jeans have us (and our curvy new bodies) covered.
So how can you find the perfect fit? Here’s what Kate and Dee have to say.
1. Find a style that suits you
Born on Chapel St in 1972, JAG is the original designer denim brand and their new made-to-fit collection includes 15 different styles. JAG’s denim designers have created a full range of premium, soft, quality denim and unique cuts with an emphasis on creating the perfect jean, tailored just for you.
For spunky Glamour Mama Kate, the perfect fit was the Jerry, a skinny style in black, with a medium rise waistband and coated finish. Glamour Mama admits, “I have always found jeans shopping challenging due to my curvy shape and 5.2″ (157cm) height; so I was thrilled when not just one, but three styles looked and felt amazing!”.
For Mama Stylista Dee, the perfect fit was the Georgie Misfit jeans in black wash. She tells us, “I have a high waist and long legs and find it quite time consuming looking for jeans. The assistant talked me through the different rinses, washes and leg lengths and gave me five pairs based on my body shape. I was looking for a distressed cropped pair and the Georgie jeans were exactly what I was looking for.”
2. Admire from all angles to avoid the “crouching toddler, hidden muffin top” test
One of the best things about JAG’s jeans is that they have the perfect pocket placement and rise in the waistband to give you the most flattering shape. When you are shopping for new jeans, always check how your jeans fit all over and do a few lunges and squats to test out how they fare when crouching down to pick up baby or reaching across the car seat to secure bub in the capsule.
Glamour Mama Kate says, “Many of the styles I tried were mid rise or high rise and all passed my “crouching toddler, hidden muffin top” test. These jeans don’t expose anything that shouldn’t be and also hold in jiggly bits around a mama tum.”
Mama Stylista Dee feels the same about her Georgie jean. “They actually hold my tummy in and I felt very comfortable in them. They didn’t give me the dreaded muffin top.”
3. Match to your current wardrobe and accessories
JAG’s collection of jeans include a straight leg, skinny leg, boyfriend and boot cut, as well as medium rise and high rise waists which means regardless of what your style is, you can top it off with a nice fitting pair of jeans.
For Glamour Mama Kate, dressing up is all part of the fun. She tells us, “I love that the Jerry has a more dressy finish, which is obviously right at home with a heel. I have worn them with a crisp white shirt and heeled booties for meetings, leather bling and stilettos for date night, sneakers and tee for playgroup, fluffy knit and jellies for the school run and a soft trench coat tee and ballet flats for errands.”
Mama Stylista Dee’s pick, the Georgie has a trendy vibe to them. She tells us, “I love the distressed detailing at the knee and the unhemmed cuffs. Very cool! You can wear them with high heeled pumps, pointed flats, blazers, an oversized jumper, ankle boots, a denim shirt or biker jacket.”
So how do our ladies rate JAG jeans? Both agree that the fit, the quality, the style and the lack of exposed muffin top, makes these jeans a definite five out of five. Find your nearest JAG store or shop online and check out their extensive range of jeans designed to complement your style, your shape and, most importantly, your nappy bag.
