Recently I was invited to an Levi’s event. The event would feature Levi’s Curve ID jeans, a Latinalicious™ jean that follows the curves of our bodies and does not try to flatten or rearrange our natural shape. The jeans available in 4 styles, Slight Curve for slender curvier women, Demi Curve for even proportions, Bold Curve to honor genuine curves and Supreme Curve jeans for the curviest woman. The jeans also come in various colors and cuts, like skinny, boot leg and straight leg.
Wanting to show the range of the jeans, I decided to take Joyee, with me. We not only varied in size but in body structure as well. Unlike me, Joyee has not had children and thus lacks the “Mommy pouch”. She is tall, slender and curvacious with a tiny waist. I, on the otherhand, am shorter, thicker and hippier. Our bodies couldn’t have been more different! Could Levi’s Curve ID jeans fit us both?
Normally when I purchase jeans, I try on tons before getting the right style, cut and fit. It’s extremly frustrating, especially when I have a child in tow! With the Levi’s Curve ID jeans, I was measured before making my selection. By measuring I was able to guage which style fit best. I was told the best fit was the Supreme Curve jeans; however, the Lexington Avenue store does not carry that style. As a result, I was given the Bold Curve to try on.
I was given 3 pairs of Bold Curve jeans, in varying colors (Dark blue, light blue and stone washed) and styles (boot cut, straight leg and skinny) I won’t embarrass myself bore you with the details except to say I had the wrong size. The lovely salesperson thought I was skinner than I was and gave me a size smaller. Although I was touched by the fact that she thought I was skinny, I have to admit I was freaking out thinking I had gained weight! No matter how much hopping, pulling or sucking in I did, the jeans would not pass my luscious hips! I was red faced and sweating by the time I had the foresight to look at the size and was surprised to see a size I haven’t seen in over 2 years.
When I called the saleswoman over and explained, we had a chuckle over my large rear end. She brought over a larger size and it fit perfectly! It did not give me a muffin top, camel toe or flatten my derriere. It accentuated my curves, without making me look trashy. The jeans were definitely a keeper!
Before trying on a pair of jeans, I was measured. In order to work with my natural shape, they measured my waistline to my hips to obtain my size. Measuring your natural waistline to your hips can determine the type of Curve you are. I discovered I was a Supreme Curve. They did not have them in stock at that store, but I was informed that the 42nd Street store had the Supreme Bold.
Tiffany, the saleswoman assisting me, explained how most women who fit into Supreme Bold might also fit into the Bold. She was right. I did! Tiffany gave me two pairs of Bold jeans, one my size, the other a size bigger. It was recommended to always try on a bigger size, just in case the waistline fits a bit tight. She also noted that 80% of women surveyed and measured by Levi’s were able to fit into a Demi Curve.
When I went into the fitting room (which was quite fancy, I must say) to try on my jeans, the bigger jeans fit perfectly. For once, I did not have to do my personal, jump-like-no-tomorrow dance in order to get into the jeans. It slipped on nicely and it hugged my waist without any gap. It was not too tight, yet not too loose. It was just right! I sat, walked, ran in place, jumped, did crazy moves that shall not be mentioned for the sake of my image, and the jeans held up. They were still comfortable. It passed my test with no problem! You can’t let go of a pair of jeans that passes the ‘jean tests’ that easily… or am I the only one who has these ‘jean tests’?
I would highly recommend women of all shapes and sizes to go check out Levi’s Curve ID. If asked to be measured, please take the opportunity to do so! They’re want to help you get the right type of jeans. They want to give you jeans that work with you and your own unique shape instead of having women squeeze themselves into a style thats runs against their shape.
Could Levi’s Curve ID jeans fit us both?
Joyee and I agree, Levi’s Curve ID passed the test! It fits BOTH our body types, without sacrificing our individual curves. As a result, we highly recommend these jeans for all shapes and sizes.
Disclosure: Joyee and I were provided with Levi’s Curve ID jeans for our review; however, this in no way influenced our review.
