I am perpetually on the hunt for the perfect jean. I have tried almost all low end varieties from Ann Taylor to LOFT to Levi’s, and have never been 100% happy. I decided to venture into the higher end territory as I have literally never owned a pair of jeans over $70. A new denim world! I started at 7FAM because I had heard of their “curvy” line and actually, am very pleased with the way they fit.
The jeans are a standard 98% cotton, 2% spandex but don’t seem to lose their shape with multiple wears. I took these on a recent work trip for 2 weeks, never washed them and wore them often and saw no signs of stretching.
Regarding fit: I find that while the waistband sits flat along my stomach and back, I always wear a belt because it doesn’t seem to fit snuggly enough for my liking. I love the way they fit around my hips and thighs, tight but not sausage looking. I also am a fan of the slightly higher rise. These come about 1-1.5 inches below my belly button which I think is ideal for a non-highrise jean.
The pocket placement of these jeans is also ideal for me. About 1.5-2 inches separation from the middle seam is where I like my pockets to lay for my butt to look its best. I also appreciate the subtle fading along the front seaming and rear. It is enough to show some interest but not enough to draw attention to problem areas.
Overall, i’m a fan. Would I pay the over $200 price tag for all of my jeans? Probably not. While I enjoy these and have gotten a ton of wear out of them, the price tag still gets me. I am just as happy with my Levi’s Supreme Curve jeans.
