Jeggings debuted last summer and are leggings masquerading as jeans. They have a jean print, come in several washes and colors, and some even have faux pockets and a real button-fly. BUT DON’T BE FOOLED. They are leggings through and through and will be the most comfortable pair of jeans (if you want to call them that) you’ll ever buy, and they look great on plus-sizes too. They are incredibly slimming and since they’re stretchy as hell, they hit every curve of whatever body they’re put on, whether you have too-skinny legs….or the opposite.
As a woman who uses a wheelchair, finding truly fabulous jeans that look good (read: do not make me look fat or make it look like I have a penis by fabric bunching in the crotch-area while I’m sitting) has been so hard, and such a waste of money. I had actually given up on finding a decent pair of jeans years ago, and instead usually just wear black leggings or a skirt. All of my friends can attest to Tiff never wearing jeans. But that all changed in the past week.
After discovering the existence of Jeggings 10 days ago, I started my search online to procure a pair. I checked out the Express, who were asking $50 for a pair of Jeggings. FAIL. Instead, I found two awesome pairs of denim leggings (one is cropped, one pair is ankle length with a cool ‘80s acid wash) at Herberger’s at $9.99/pair. Do your shopping homework, people. Always look online first before wasting gas driving anywhere.
Jeggings are the future of jeans. And remember – wear a long top/short dress with your Jeggings (never anything shorter), as Jeggings tend to be tighter in the crotch area than a regular pair of jeans.
