Jeans are always a popular request here on Style Me Curvy, and today's post relates to the new kid on the block in the jeans world, Good American. I've had my eye on a pair of these for a while now, so I was only too delighted to be sent a pair recently. A few months ago Khloe Kardashian and her business partner Emma Grede launched the Good American jeans line. Their campaign ticked all the boxes for me in the diversity stakes using various sizes and ethnic groups but the biggest thing was to see a fresh jeans line immediately kick start themselves in a size inclusive way ranging from a US 00-24 ( around a size 28 UK). It's the kind of brand that is well thought out and offers different options whether you want more of a leg focus or high waisted style (and praise the lord they have lots of high waisted styles for us gals with more curvy derrieres!).
There are lots of styles and cuts the brand have developed from cropped ankle styles to more boyfriend fit. If like me you are more of an apple shape ( we struggle to find jeans more than any other shape!), I always recommend high waisted so you don't have that uncomfortable feeling when you sit down!. The elastane in their high waisted styles seem to have a slimming effect in so far as it smooths back fat and feels really comfortable on the tummy area. I have a really sensitive abdomen which is essentially the selling point for me when it comes to a pair of jeans.
Overall view: Would I buy a pair personally? Yes I most definitely would( I already have my eye on a light wash pair for summer), and while they do come at a higher price point, I would consider them to be at that premium level jeans brand yet they do come in ever so slightly cheaper than the likes of Levi's and J Brand. At the moment the brand has various cropped styles that would work for petite ladies so my only critique would be that it would be great to see some longer leg options for tall ladies, but other than that I can't fault them!
Wear to find them?: For UK & Ireland friends they have recently launched in Selfridges where you can buy them online if you live outside of the country too in Europe. You can still of course buy them off Good American website that ships internationally as well as other US sites like Nordstorm.
