Well, it’s happened. I’ve ventured into the territory of the ultra high-rise jean, and i’m loving it. I don’t really know why I never thought to purchase this style before but I couldn’t be happier with the fit, the way they feel, and the versatility of this pair. I have already worn them 3-4 times since purchasing them a few days ago and love that I can wear them with virtually any top tucked in, or a looser fitting style draped over for extra tummy support.
I was originally a little hesitant about the wash of these but think that the subtle fading makes them appropriate for day or night and adds a bit of relaxation to the outfit. The rise on these jeans comes to above 1 inch above my natural belly button which is perfection for sitting with comfort and complete tummy control. The pockets are placed just a smidge higher than I normally go but I think they give a nice lift and are proportioned for this overall style.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this pair is the quality. I went out on a limb and purchased my second pair of designer denim (these are J Brand) and am seriously smitten with the wearability. Designer denim really does allow for a more comfortable fit and better tailor to the body, and these do just that. I feel like these are a second skin in the best way possible and may have just become a J Brand convert. For reference, i’m wearing a size 31 and love them. I could probably have gotten away with a 30 and then stretched them out a bit but the 31 for the time being is just perfection.
Do you rock the ultra high-rise denim trend?
