Like so many other women, I struggled with finding a good pair of jeans. While I am a total t-shirt and jeans sort of girl, sometimes finding those perfect jeans can be tough – and worse off, it can be depressing. Many times I have walked into a store optimistically shopping for a new pair of jeans and left feeling discouraged.
Denim seems to be the one article of clothing that we all find challenging but recently Bootlegger approached me to let me know about their Jeaneologists. These Jeaneologists are trained in understanding denim and women’s body concerns so that every woman (and man!) can walk into a Bootlegger to find their perfect jeans and leave feeling confident.

Growing up I was always pretty lanky, but when I was about 20 I suddenly noticed that my once-lanky body type had decidedly changed to be a bit curvier. I believe in embracing your body, but having been used to one body type and then having another threw me for a loop. While I always have liked the look of curves, I had zero idea how to dress them – and my biggest issue was denim. I found it nearly impossible to find a pair of jeans that worked with my hips, fitted my legs, and also were a proper length – because that’s the other thing, my legs are quite long and often “regular” lengths end up being capris on me.
The first pair of jeans that I felt really worked for my body type back when I was 20 was Silver Jeans. They were a bit stretchy and mmore forgiving in the hip area while also being fitted on my legs. So after sharing my body concerns with Nicole, Bootleggers Jeaneologist, it was no surprise that she ended up pulling a few different Silver Jeans for me to try! She knew exactly which brand and style of denim would work for me, and I ended up leaving with not only one pair of jeans – but I officially have three more on my wish list!
