|Google "mom jeans" and this is pretty much what you get!|
I've literally been dreading having to try on new pants. I have been wearing jeans from the juniors department my entire life, and I knew that those pants aren't exactly cut for women who recently had children. So I blocked all the images running around my head picturing "mom" pants, and made myself quit prejudging the experience I was to embark upon.

Just so we are all clear on the front end, I am not a fashionista, although I am not a total slouch, either. I never have been and probably will never be. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, although I do love dresses, but comfort is my main goal when it comes to clothing. So my main goal for finding new pants was of course comfort. That and not having a muffin top, ugh! Before embarking on my shopping trip, I pulled out all my old jeans and braved trying them on. Most, of course, didn't come remotely close to fitting. One pair, however, I was able to get zipped and buttoned, woohoo! Believe it or not, these were size 7/8 from my juniors collection. Funny thing, none of the other 7/8's from the same collection even came close to fitting. So I checked out the label, and wouldn't you know it said the style was for curves, and those I definitely now have. I then checked to see if this brand made these style of jeans anymore, and of course they did not. I then went and did research on other jeans made for curvy women.
I new I was going to be shopping at Kohl's, remember how I said I wasn't a fashionista? I can't afford really expensive clothes, so I shop at Kohl's quite a bit. I can get a lot for a lot less, and they have some very cute things here and there, so I make it easy on myself and always plan a trip there when shopping is to be done. Yes, I wish I could afford Gucci and Prada, but I can't, so Kohl's it is. Anyways, I got online and checked out what style of jeans they had in the women's department. Low and behold, Jennifer Lopez has a jeans line. I'm not a huge fan of hers, but she's okay, and I do know she has curves. After reading the reviews on her jeans line by customers, it seemed that other women were very happy about how her jeans for a "real" woman's body. After perusing the reviews, I knew I had to go see if her jeans would work for me.

|The bootcut dark wash, not too shabby, eh?|
|Straight-leg dark wash, look great with my boots!|
|The bootcut lighter wash, perfect for my sneakers!|
|Dang mom, yo butt look smokin' in those!|

I hope this review helps some of you curvy women out there, especially you who may be like me and don't have $200 to spend on one pair of pants, and hopefully will give you a direction to look when searching out some new duds. I am particularly picky when it comes to my pants, and I have tons of jeans just sitting in my closet never worn or worn once because they didn't fit the same after the first wear or even after the first couple of hours wear, or after I started and/or got off my period...you know what I'm talking about, right? So, if any of you curvy gals are looking for some new jeans that will fit your curves the way they should, then do check out Jennifer Lopez's line at Kohl's. I didn't try on any other brands, since I don't believe torturing myself when I find something that works, so I can't speak for any other jeans sold there, but the JLos are terrific as far as I'm concerned. Sorry I didn't have a pic of myself in them, but I felt awkward asking someone to take a pic of my ass in my jeans, so you'll just have to trust me on all this.
