The latest development in denim comes in the form of a pair of skinny jeans that make you drop two dress sizes. At over £200 a pair, they don’t come cheap, but would you be willing to part with your cash for something that promises to make you look skinnier?
Old Technology, New Tricks
The denim uses the same technology as the highly acclaimed Spanx pants, yet this time the spring construction is concealed by the cotton twine running through the denim. The director of MiH Jeans – one of the brands selling the new jeans – has likened the technology to a telephone cord, explaining that ‘your body is pushing against the outline, but the denim is like a phone cord – it keeps springing back into shape’. Spanx will also be selling them at a more purse friendly £60 this autumn.
Inspiring a New Generation of Jean Wearers
Whilst many women feel they can’t wear skinny jeans and that they’re reserved for slim, tall Alexa Chung types, it might not be long before all body-types feel amazing in a tight pair of skinnies. Jeans are a wardrobe staple for many, and if the new design from MiH Jeans can make us look and feel amazing every single day, we imagine they’ll be even more popular.
Could this be a Case of Style over Comfort?
If you’ve ever donned a pair of Spanx for a special occasion, you’ll be aware of the restrictions they cause to your ability to laugh, speak and even breathe comfortably after a couple of hours. Imagine the same discomfort being inflicted upon you every time you wear your jeans and you might just think again next time you want to pop them on whilst you nip to the shops.
Jeans are supposed to be comfortable, and whilst they may not be the most flattering option for all figures, they’re a grab-and-go staple in most people’s wardrobes. Having to shimmy in and peel yourself out of your jeans everyday makes them slightly less appealing.
The Future of “Make You Skinnies”
“The make you skinny jeans” will be amazing for special occasions though, and will make you feel your best when on a first date or out for a meal with friends, so they definitely do serve a very useful purpose.
It’s to be expected that most people will stick to their trusty, comfortable jeans on a daily basis, whether that’s a battered old pair, the perfect length petite pair or your favorite plus-size pair from somewhere like Castaluna Plus Size Clothing. However, fast-forward a few years and a pair of “make you skinny jeans” could be hanging in the wardrobes of women worldwide.
